What can I say.../ Nikon D-200

I love Venice. I also do not have many images where I am at the present, in the computer I'm using so please be understanding.

A rose by any other name....E PL-2

Well you know the rest of the sentence. This gorgeous rose was photographed in that wonderful urban park in Westerly Rhode Island.

Lone chair / E-PL 2

This chair was on a loading dock on west 13th Street in lower Manhattan. This is the meat packing district that has become real interesting now. The lens was the Digital Zuiko 9-18 F 4-5.6.

Close to home / Canon 5-D

I had just gotten my 5D, my first FF DSLR so I was eager to use it. I only took a 24mm EF F2.8 lens and these are some results.

High ISO test / Nikon D-700

I was amazed at the fact that this photo, basically half a frame was shot at ISO 1600. There is no grain. This sort of performance was impossible with film.

Home from a rip to the country, I placed the produce on a table and used only window light with a white reflector. The lens was the Nikkor 59mm F 1.4 and the film was high speed Ektachrome.
