A Christmas Scene.

At least, in our house.

Taken a few moments ago.

This image was taken at the same time as all of my other recently posted images, before I realized that my 58/1.4 lens was front-focusing.

The intended focus here was the near eye, but the actual focus ended up being on the front of the hat.

Still, I like this image.

(Andreas: the background buildings are the same yellow-ish buildings :) )




Thank goodness for Nikon’s AF fine-tuning.

I fine-tuned the focusing on my 58/1.4 lens this evening.

As I suspected, it was off.

I suppose I could be annoyed that it needed a “+15” adjustment, but I’m mostly relieved that it can be corrected easily.

[Edit (November 21):  Upon further testing – in daylight :) – it turns out I need to make a +18 adjustment!]



Fleeting expressions like this are rarely seen with our eyes but always perceived by our subconscious.

Photography has the power to suspend such moments for our leisurely contemplation.

It’s one of the qualities of this obsessive pursuit that I enjoy.



Police Man.

A 70s vibe to this officer.

These Boots…

…are made for walking.

(it’s difficult to make a dog pose mid-step, but I do my best to bring you the best dog-in-booties images)

A little motion-emotion.

Life’s Little Moments™, Reloaded.

Introducing the Nikon D810.

New camera, same outlook.

(Onward and upward.)

Oh yes — the lens.

Another time.

I’ll discuss.

Arte di mano case for the D810.

What would that look like?

The Nikon D810 sensor is…


I did an outdoor photo shoot for a family today.

The colours, textures, and even look that I am able to extract from the D810 remind me of what I was getting with my Mamiya 7 +Kodak Portra 400 film.


Feature rich.

I just set the date and time (on the camera), but somehow managed to take 200 images of a running dog catching a frisbee.  Yet my lens cap was still on!  All of these features…

Long live the King.
