Garden, 3 (re-processed).

I’ve re-processed my image Garden, 3, using similar techniques I used to use when processing my M9 files.

So…. I’m still experimenting.  Wondering what people think (I’m looking at you jh).

As a point of comparison…

In follow up to the Voigtlander 40/1.4 post, where I evaluate central sharpness on the Nikon Z7 at various lens apertures, here’s what the Nikon 50/1.8S lens does wide open @ f/1.8:

Clearly, this lens is operating on another optical level (the advantages of newer lens design and manufacturing, software trickery, as well as a larger size).

Social Distancing at the Pharmacy.

Halfway there in the line to get in…

COVID-19 precautions in effect.

Everything will be okay.

Social distancing has actually made my neighbourhood feel a little more… neighbourly.

Stay safe everyone.

Memory Lane.

My wife was tidying the file cabinet this evening, and she came across a folder with some interesting contents in it — contents that I had long forgotten about.

Specifically, there were some receipts and warranty cards from Nikon, from 2004.  Your see, in that year, I bought my very first digital DSLR, the Nikon D70 along, with its kit lens, the 18-70mm.  That started a crazy journey for me that I’m still on, and — interestingly — the path has recently wound its way back to Nikon.  Through it all, I never sold my beloved D70 and 18-70mm combo.

They are, in fact, the only pieces of photographic gear that I’ve never sold.

—Peter.

Here’s the original Nikon Canada warranty card for the D70:

And here are the dynamic duo, in the flesh (so to speak):

And here they are posing with a photo that was created by them:
