I stopped by to photograph this old conveniance store tonight, 645z + FA 45-85mm

And as Ed Hurst Mentioned, its storm season here in Australia, 645z + DA25mm several images blended

Thanks for looking, Tom

I do hope your liability policy is up to date Thomas, umbrellas in wide open spaces and lightning are not the best combination

I liked the shot(s) though.

Here's one from the night workshop I taught on Saturday in San Francisco.
This with the DFA24 on the 645D. Moments later, I had the A35 mounted to my camera when my tripod tipped and the camera smacked on the ground, lens first. The lenscap shattered and the front element looks damaged and ring all bent up. I haven't surveyed the lens nor camera yet for other damage; I put both back in my bag hoping when I opened it Monday morning, it would have been just a bad dream, ha.
I am thankful the 25mm wasn't still on there at least.

Ouch! Hope the damage is fixable and that the camera's OK.

Workshops seem to be tough on the instructor's gear, not really surprising given that the instructor has so much to look after. I happened to be at the same place as a workshop when the instructor's camera and tripod did the same sort of nose dive.

This beautiful olf till was in a rural house we rented for a weekend last December. It was very dark so I must have set up the tripod for this shot. Yashica Mat 124G, Fuji 160NS.

It's been a long time since I have been here - I believe I joined up several years ago but never participated. My circumstances are currently rather odd—I find myself off work for ~8 months whilst I undergo chemotherapy for CLL. I generally feel pretty good, but my immunity has been hammered so I have to keep to myself and avoid other people as much as I can! I decided at the outset that this would be a great opportunity for me to get out and walk (the TransCanada Trail borders the back of my property, so I have a direct path to Newfoundland if I turn right, or British Columbia by doing the other thing) and take photographs. I tend to be a bit of a slut when it comes to cameras, but some are Pentaxes (K1000, ME Super, MX, SF1, SF10 and the 645N). When I get back to work in the spring and start to earn again I'm toying with the idea of using my 645 lenses on a 645Z. We'll see. Here are some of the things I did with the 645 in the last few months:

A lonely soccer ball on the trail:

Pentax 645N, 75mm/f2.8, Fuji Pro 400H, Unicolor presskit, Hasselblad X1 scan, B&W conversion in LR.

Beaver pond:

Pentax 645N, 45mm/F2.8, Fuji Pro 400H, Unicolor presskit, Hasselblad X1 scan.

Cape John:

Pentax 645n, 45mm/f2.8, Portra 400, Unicolor presskit, Hasselblad X1 scan.

Pippa:

Pentax 645n, 120/f4, XP2, Rodinal stand, Nikon 9000 scan.

Unfortunately, it's getting a bit cold for going out now, and my exercise tolerance is falling as I go along through this treatment, but I'll try to do some more.

Chris
