A winter day in Greenport NY, the end of the North Shore of Long Island's wine country.
The Canon 5D with the 50mm 1.8 prime EF lens. This is the old version with the metal mount not the new one with a plastic mount that Canon should be ashamed of themselves.

A fall Sunday afternoon stroll in Central Park, on a sunny day and in the company of my daughter, a very successful photographer in her own right, is simply ideal. This swan was in one of the lakes enjoying a rather warm day. The D200 with the 80-300 F 3.5-5.6 VR Nikkor.

Happy Easter to all. This photo comes from an urban chicken farm. This is sort of a quixotic attempt at changing the way food is made. for all the efforts, the mere 10 chickens produce a puny 7 or so eggs a day. This will not put a dent on the commercial farms. It takes a huge city block of land, with a small coop and other de rigouer items such as solar panels, that do not work and water collectors etc. Not a very impressive enterprise but the eggs make a good Easter photo. I know, I'm cynical but why should I change. One has to be able so sift out all the BS that can engulf and choke you. The D700 had the superb 35-70 F2.8 Nikkor.
