This month with your Nikon 1 - August 2021
1

First, myy apologies - starting into the new month, I just realized that I was offline at the beginning of July and completely missed creating the July thread. I'm still shooting my N1 equipment, but don't spend that much time online or at the PC in my sparetime, to compensate for 10+ hours in front of the screen on workdays. Sorry, again my apologies for missing it.

I've been looking back at old pictures and playing with monochrome conversions using Silver Effects. I really like the V1 pictures when converted

Evening Walk Around Sasamat Lake
2

Thank you for starting this thread. The July thread was missed? We will survive.

These photos were taken about a week and a half ago. One evening, at around supper time, my wife and son made the impromptu decision to go for a walk around Sasamat Lake. Since I had to drive them out there, I went for the walk too. It was a pleasant experience.

I brought along my Nikon V2 and 1 Nikkor 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 lens and snapped a few photos during the walk. Here are some of them.

Sasamat Lake - looking towards White Pine Beach on the opposite side

Sasamat Lake - my better half starting to cross the bridge that spans the lake near the South end

Sasamat Lake - my better half and son walking ahead of me along a boardwalk that goes along part of the lake

Thank you for putting up the thread. It is a good way to see periodically what everyone is up to,

Griffin Vulture

I have been in a trip to the Pyrinees. One of the stops was a lookout where vultures nest nearby and fly very close. I also had the opportunity to photograph a bearded vulture, but those were flying much higher, and when one got closer, I did not manage to get focus on him.

Seen while out running daily errands. Captured with V2 and 10-100, my basic whatever kit.

RV

On our caravan storage site waiting for the engineer to do the habitation check, all alone among hundreds of shiny newish campers and caravans, snaps of this forelorn US RV

Nice lichen and moss

I'm likin' the lichen shot. I've had a very long running theme in my own photography that I call What Entropy Means to Me, a title I borrowed from a science fiction book form around the 1970's. This fits not that theme of decay very nicely.

I don't know Effinger will look him out - did read a lot of Heinlein and his contemporaries etc

This fits not that theme of decay very nicely.

The flora will always beat the fauna ( and its creations ) - eventually.

The caravans around the RV were out a few days ago - some more interesting shots but I had left my camera behind.

Re: This month with your Nikon 1 - August 2021

I like that - the subject and the way you have composed it.

Buildings often seem to me to look better in B&W.  I have never just gone out to photograph in B&W ( unless it was with film ).  Seems easier to look at the pictures later and then decide what may or may not work in monochrome.

Re: Basic Transportation from July 31

Interesting to see these pics.  You have got some good and quirky  shots of old cars (autos)  and urban mechanicals and so on which I like.

That vehicle looks like someones pride and joy.  I rarely see these on the road here unless there is a vintage car rally in the nearby track.

My father used to do up old British cars like the Rileys.  The only trouble was that he insisted on using them to take us on holiday.  Very stylish no doubt but once one has spent 4 hours immobile on a nondescript road in North Wales while the valve stems were reground or the carb stripped and rebuilt ( both did happen ) then one wished for a Morris Minor ( a modern car in the 60's ) which did actually work - well most of the time.

Thanks.

There are a couple factors at play here, I think. If your are in the lower elevation parts of AZ (that includes Phoenix and Tucson) you don't have to deal with snow and the road salt that destroys metal car bodies. So it is easier to own and restore old cars. Also, the laws. in AZ are not as restrictive as their are in more civilized parts of the US, so such things as fenders windshields are strictly optional. Our paved roads are generally in good shape, without the car killing potholes of states that have to deal with winter. And there a lot of old geezers like me living here with lots of time on their hands.

Your comment got me thinking about some of the stranger things I've seen on AZ roads, so here's a bunch of shots pulled from my files taken over the years with whatever camera was my ride along kit at the time.

As seen in my rear view mirror as I drove to work one morning.

Another sight while headed to work one day.

A duct tape roof on the car next to me waiting for the light.

Another pickup in progress.

Can't afford a 4x4 pickup? Use your Honda Prelude instead.

I have no idea what this was or is supposed to be.

I'm glad I've only seen this one once.

Obstructing the view on the driver's window wouldn't be legal lots of places.

Super glue at work.

Merry Christmas!

Amazing Rich!  Thanks for digging these out - absolutely fascinating   The models stick to the bonnet just look weird ( and highly illegal in most places ).

Like the pimped up autos and the bumper sticker creepage.

Hadnt thought about longevity in a dry low humidity climate.  I tend to run my cars into the ground but before they actually got corrosion protection right,  what killed them off was when we were having to reweld the welds of panel sections and structural bits of the chassis.

Works great. I like Silver effect. I mostly use the high structure preset.

Very nice picture.

Wow, super set of pictures! We seldom see this kind of customized cars here in France.

The Honda Prelude is really impressive!
