"If you go down to the woods today"

"You'd better not go alone. It's lovely down in the woods today
But safer to stay at home."  ....... (Jimmy Kennedy 1932)

Watercolors

Went for a walk early this morning with my beloved, she's gotten this idea that we need to to start excercising a bit more , something to do with our cloths getting tight around the waist...  I brought some extra weights (uh,,,camera) you know... resistance training and all that ....
 
Found this lovely Eucalyptus tree along the path..... hmmmm maybe something to be said about this early morning excercise after all :)

down by the river side

Saturdays are meant for sleeping in! except if you have kids , then there is sports and all sorts of activities you need to drive them to.... can't complain though, especially when the location is as pretty as this.

Twilight zone revisited

Somebody moved he planets on me. Shot this same alley way some months ago, they had planets floating between the buildings.

It was a bit eerie as you walk down the alleyway as there is a recording of birds playing and you look up and see all the empty bird cages...

of portraits and portrait lenses

Got to try a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G  (the older version) , that is a very nice piece of glass. I can understand why a lot of Pros use it in portraiture....

Whats your favorite lens for shooting portraits?
