7/52-44 Cloudy, with a chance of…

Alhamdulillah! I spent the week playing with the Vivitar 70-210, but didn’t spend much time playing with it: still far too wrapped up in being married: Alhamdulillah! Not much else to say, really. Life is wonderful. D7000. Vivitar 70-210mm f/3.5 (Kiron-made, likely). I took a bunch in macro mode, but all of these were shot […]

I spent most of the last week in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, with my beloved wife (!?!?!?) Farhana Ali, on our honeymoon, enjoying our first week together.

These included the Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 ai, the Nikon 36-72mm f/3.5 E Series, the Nikon 75-150mm Zomb-E Series, and the Vivitar 70-210mm f/3.5 Series 1 (Kiron, maybe). I thought about going crazy […]

7/52-17 Cats! (and not cats…)

AKA One of these is not like the other Another week of not-really-focusing-on-shooting, and with very, very good reason that I’ll share sooner or later. I did manage to break off an hour or so on Wednesday, and another 15 minutes yesterday in order to make some pictures, and I’m thankful I got 7 that […]
