Brilliant choice and glad to hear it is inspiring you...

Thanks, I'm usually commuting into NYC for work and like to document my commute so it should be really good for that. Plus I work in a nice area to shoot so it will give me something to do when I take my afternoon walk. At least if we ever get back in it will.

Perfect camera for that...

It just seems to have that thing, like a guitar that makes you play better than you really are.

Nice shot - I'm guessing somewhere between Illinois and western Pennsylvania (pretty huge swath even if I'm right - my final guess would be Ohio but you don't need to answer - I'm probably wrong anyway). 28mm is perfect for a shot like that vs focusing on the well or something. I think I picked the right lens as my default.

Ooh -- those are great. And perfect format to carry with you anywhere. Good one.

The first eggs from this season seem to be hatching. I've seen some tiny hatchlings the last couple of days. This guy has been hanging out on the porch, so I took a quick snapshot of him -- this was about 10 minutes ago.





TINY little thing. Body is about an inch. I have the camera just a couple of inches away to take these shots. For reference, the doorjamb is three inches wide:

So cute. Judging size is hard in photos. It looks big in the pics.

P.S. I see GS supports emojis now. But I'm on a laptop and not a phone so... well, no easy way to use them.

Top pics are 70mm focal length, literally as close as I could get. Any closer and the lens won't focus.

It hurt to get a new lens when going mirrorless, but holy geez are these Nikkor Z lenses sharp. I got the 20mm f/1.8 and compared to the old 20mm G lens, which I used to think was about as sharp as possible, it's better. As sharp in the center, but sharp corner to corner, too.

This is what I'm into, camera wise. I want another one with the wide 43mm, have none presently.

The new generation of mirrorless glass is very good. They are all upping there game as sensors get better, albeit canon unfortunately have the two tier system, so it is not clear how good their more affordable primes will be when/if they get round to it

For some stuff an older lens with a little more soft flare can set a good mood in a back lit portrait, so hold on to your old glass if you can. Not that 20mm is a typical portrait lens but it will suit some shots. Every lens has its strengths...

I see where you would come up with those locations, but it's actually the northern Catskills in New York. I'm digging the 28mm. I don't have a prime for my DSLR that's that wide, but my zoom is an 18-135 which on APSC is similar at the wide end.

I really want to upgrade my DSLR, but I'm a Pentax guy and they're supposedly coming out with a new body later this year so I want to see if I like that before I get anything.

I used the 38 Biogon -- with the SWC Hassy for many years --- good focal length ---

I see now that you probably answered it earlier (not always in "posting order" when I wake up...). Not surprised I'm wrong - have only flown through the northeast so only know from pictures. But yes, upstate New York now makes perfect sense!

My zoom is a Lumix 14-140 and weighs so much more than the GX1 it's odd and unstable. I can use my trusty GH1 for bigger lenses anyway. I'll get the Lumix 20mm next if I stick with it enough.

Here's the camera I took to Alaska. Wanted something snappable and had to have waterproof, although my idea of really roughing it is slim (you can see how pristine the camera is).

I need to buy film for this! (go the opposite direction from you just crossing over)

I went down the Alex Ball rabbit hole today. One of the few music based youtube channels where the person has skills some depth and is entertaining. The porno music tutorials are great.

Some time lapse experiments.

I made wax melts. Wanted to make the house smell nice, and I had a wax pot that I bought off the amazon for potting a pickup I swapped magnets on. I don't think that's what it's for, I think it's for ladies to wax their hoo hoos and whatnot, but it's PERFECTLY sized for a guitar pickup and holds temp really well...

Anyway, I bought some smelly oil and went to town. Realized last week it would be a good subject for time lapses:



So that was a fun experiment. I was looking for a subject other than stars. The youtubes just DESTROYS my night sky timelapses, which are beautiful on my computer but after google compresses them they look very much like that porn you took all night to download off of limewire a couple decades ago.



That's that 20mm f/1.8 Z lens. Those stars are pinpoints and there's ZERO coma or chromatic aberration. You know, before the compression.
