That first shot of NYC is really nice. The super takumars have really nice DOF at f 8.

Been a couple weeks, folks! I'm chomping at the bit.....on the other hand the weather hasn't been so great for it anyhow. I got so anxious, I picked up an SV body at Knights for $30, about to send it off to Eric for a CLA, and a pristine 55 mm f/1.8 Super Tak at Blue Moon for $40. [Bump, Bump]

You bought the SV from Knight's for only $30 I was in there about a week ago and did not even see it!

Regarding the weather...of course it is cold and rainy. It is the start of Rose Festival and rain and mud for the festival is a tradition. I am hoping that the camera gets to me before the festival is over so that I can shoot the spectators, vendors, and parade floats. If the camera gets here too late, I can always go up to the mountains for some snow shots. It has been a cool, wet May and there is about a foot of new snow on Mt. Hood.


Steve

P.S. For those that don't know...Portland Pete and I are local to each other.

Funny thing about it, is that I had to do the Buy it Now because it was listed on eBay, even though I was standing in the store. They did give me the automatically added shipping charge off a 28mm f/2.5 Vivitar while I was there.

You are right about the mud for Rose Festival. I'll take pictures of it all with something!

You bought the Vivitar 28/2.5 as well?! Hopefully you paid less than the $65 that they were asking the day I was in there.

They were asking $39, and knocked the $5 shipping charge from the body off. Out the door for less than $70. The test roll revealed issues with both the slow and fast shutter speeds. The slow ones were really slow, and on the fast ones the second curtain was catching up after about 1/3 frame. Off to Eric soon!

The Sightseer has landed in Vancouver to cloudy skies and occasional rain showers. Plans for the visit tentatively include Portland Rose Festival events including "Fleet Week" and maybe a field trip to the beach.

Steve, that's fabulous! I'd love to see rain/fog/steam sorts of photos with the camera as well as the roses and beaches... or maybe roses on a foggy beach

Well, fog and rain we have plenty of today. The Rose Festival is only partially about roses. It is more like the Festival of Roses in Anaheim than a horticultural event. There are parades with floral floats, marching bands, an amusement park, musical events, naval ships, blah, blah, blah...
