Nikon Treasure (part 1)

I’ve been dabbling in analog photography again. It is irresistible, if a bit frustrating after some years of digital. I recently purchased a Nikon 85mm f1.8 lens from a seller in Japan.

It arrived quickly and was in excellent condition. I’ll add this to the F4S camera that just arrived. A post about that will soon follow. I’ll also start posting some images taken with this camera and a few different lenses. Stay tuned.

Wide Angle View, Venice, Italy

My little Nikon 1 AW has served me well for the past 4 plus years. I have a wide angle lens on it most of the time and with good results. Here’s one of my favorite snaps from this visit to Italy:DSC_3524There’s a lot going on in that photo. WordPress squashes it, which is aggravating because it’s practically a panorama of the scene.

Tugboat idling

Spotted this handsome tugboat idling in the river during a recent video mission.DSC_1780

Great looking boat, well cared for, and working steadily. (Nikon D810)

SS United States in black and white

Was on the river recently and managed to capture some nice video passing the SS United States, where it has been docked for many years now in Philadelphia. Here’s the video:

That’s the fastest trans-Atlantic liner ever. Impressive even in its current sorry state. Wonder what will happen to it. (captured with Nikon D810)
