I am stating this with great modesty. Yet there something in this photo that recalls the Mona Lisa. The fact that the subject is my beautiful and dear daughter and colleague is only coincidental. Perhaps not. Judge for yourselves. The lens was the 24-85 F2.8-4 Nikkor. The place was the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Perhaps the background should have been less in focus but I like the patterns made by the clematis flowers.

This amaryllis is another plant that I keep on from year to year and it regales me with is lovely red flowers. A very pleasant distraction from all the white snow that we have seen so far. The kit lens was used and I'm very impressed with it image quality.

Just a geranium by my window that I keep bringing inside for the winter and thanks me with beautiful blossoms. The lens was the kit lens: the Zuiko Digital 14-42 F 3.5-5.6 II. This is actually a very good lens. The whole package is compact, light and unobtrusive.
This shot was taken at the cathedral in Newark, New Jersey some time ago. What I always liked was the relationship of the well fed bishop who is administering the Eucharist next to the diminutive Mother Theresa. The lens was the Summicron 50mm F2 and the film was Tr--X developed in D-76 full strength.

Another walk in the park with mu dog. The wall ashot was made with the Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 Heliar, while the long wiew was made with the Voigtlander25.. F3.5 Color-Skopar. This versatile camera takes many adapters that allow one to use many lenses. I used the adapter that allows Leica M lenses to be used. There is a 2X magnification factor that cramps wide angles. But these are really nice lenses. The kit lens that Olympus provides is a very competent lens.
