Spring, wonderful spring; there's nothing like it. A photo from a past spring, that of 2005. Shot with the incomparable Fuji S2 Pro. It's color had that super natural look that opened up many creative possibilities. I do not recall the Nikkor that I used.

What I'm I going crazy; I'm using a D70S which in these crazy digital days is equivalent of going retro. Why did I just get a D70S? The answer is simple. I needed a back up camera for my D700. When I got the D700, I sold my D2X's and was left with only one Nikon body. For work I've been using my Canon system. Yet I could not simply give up the Nikon system for work. With some new shoots coming up that are basically outdoor events, I needed the superiority of the Nikon flash system. It's fill flash TTL is unbeatable. So the backup. I saw the camera at Armato Pro Video and Photo, my favorite place to shop and it's also close to home. It was in mint condition and it came with the the 17-85 F3.5-4.5G lens; I had to have it. The price was also good. I had a D70 with that lens and loved the results, that is until my daughter, the superb photographer, was using it when her canoe overturned.
C'est la vie. I have had many or even too many cameras but this one excited me. I was ready to try it so when I drove to Pennsylvania to check out my house I took it along. This is really a nice lens. I had almost forgotten how good it is. The examples were all shot in raw but were only converted and no changes were made at all. I think that the IQ is great.

A photo of me with Eliot, a cat that belongs to my son Joseph but whom I am baby sitting. Shot by my daughter Jennifer a superb photographer who makes me feel like Leopold Mozart. The canon 5D with the superlative 50mm F 1.4 prime Canon lens.
