  • Nice set. If you are ever in the Natchez Ms. area, you should check out Windsor Ruins. It is similar to the site you photographed. The only issue is that it has a chain link fence around it ...
  • We are in a bit of a drought here. The ponds are fairly empty as they primarily depend on rain water for replenishment. I had a wander through this  morning. Fortunately, the area with the water ...
  • Both are good. I think I would use the B&W in a Bauhaus / minimalist setting.
  • There was a ceremony at the local memorial park Monday. The key note speaker is a retired general (reserves) that I have known through scouting for over 20 years. Our old scout troop was assisting ...
  • I am thinking we need to have a Texas County Courthouse Big Year. The same way birders have a big year counting birds. :-D
  • Replied in Sell My M240
    I have heard that KEH tends to low ball the offer. You might call Leica Miami and talk with them. Other good places may be B&H and Adorama. Call all of them. It could not hurt.
  • I think the size and weight of the CL and TL are not fully appreciated. I would much rather have the lighter weight of the CL than the SL. In the past I have carried a Nikon D7100 with the 18-55 ...
  • Replied in Home
    Nice to see it being repurposed. Too nice of a building to let it go to ruin. Is it in the central Texas area?
  • Found out they sell chickens that don't require feeding. Their egg output is non-existent though. On the way to and from the nursery is the entrance to a ranch in Booth, Texas that seemed worthy of ...
  • Replied in New 35mm lens
    You hit the nail on the head. The first week that I had it, I took a lot of practice shots at f1.4 just to get used to the lens on my camera. I probably took about 60 shots before I was able to ...
  • Got to agree. about the lightweight system. As a cancer survivor with damaged lungs, having a light weight kit is all too important. I have already passed the Nikon system on to my son.
  • Replied in New 35mm lens
    I have found the focusing less precise at f1.4 due to a very shallow DOF. With the CL, I have to work on getting it correct. Stopped down, it is easier to get the focus. The attached photos were ...
  • Replied in New 35mm lens
    I have the 35 f1.4 MC version. I use it on a CL. I have been quite happy with the results wide open. The link will take you to my Flickr album where I placed my test shots. Most were at f1.4 as I ...
  • I have to agree. I am curious as to what will happen to the V-lux and D-lux systems.
  • Replied in Two more!
    Works for me. If you had a Leica with you, we all know that is the one that would have been used.
  • Replied in My opinion
    As others have said, we cannot control what others think. Also most people do not recognize a Leica. Only once has someone asked if my camera was a Leica. His questions were the more focused on ...
  • Nice set. I particularly like the bridge
  • Another good one. I can feel a courthouse road trip coming on. I may have seen 10% of them at most. Marta has a good one.
  • Groesbeck the county seat for Limestone County in Texas. FYI there are 254 counties  in Texas. Each one has a court house.
  • Nice set. I got to agree about the red-bellied woodpeckers. They are a treat to see. Slightly off topic but there is a pair of yellow-crowned night herons nesting in the oak trees in our front ...
