More dark, wet weather in Ottawa. I continue to hunt out shots and angles of this train bridge on my way from work. 74 second exposure, f10 with the 18-135.



From the other night, three curious lamp posts that were part of the demolished Sir John Carling building.

Three-toed sloth. K3 + 16~85. His face is messy with something he was eating, I suspect pieces of sugar cane.

Nice images! Night photos are so evocative.
I'm pretty sure those three posts in the second photo are bottom-lit flag poles. They look strange without their usual flag adornment!

Seahorse with K3 + 35mm 2.8 macro. Use of Plexiglas for aquarium tanks, rather than glass, badly degrades IQ.

This parrot has not joined the choir eternal

A friend's African grey parrot, shot with the Pentax-M 50mm f/1.4, which I've concluded is best for shooting things that don't move.

I'd be willing to bet most people don't know how hard it is to get a shot like that in agility or rally. Very well done!

Been 2 years now since I purchased my K3. First decent camera I have had since a Canon AE-1 I purchased in Japan in the late 70's. Still have a lot to learn, and am enjoying the journey. I have some decent lenses and am still learning the intricacies of each of them. But each fall when grouse season comes around and I bang around in the woods with the dog I use the DA 18-135mm for the WR and size. Carrying a camera and lens when in the woods hunting it is a compromise. I find that I have to take a lot of pictures with it to get a few of what I consider decent pictures compared to my other lenses. And still have to figure out what it is that makes the difference. But am pleased when they do turn out well. Not great like the other lenses produce but am pleased when they do turn out acceptable.

The Toller in my avatar is now 12 and retired from hunting. I have added a new Toller to the household and he just turned 1 year old.
