I mean its original purpose. Not what you're thinking about using it for now...

250mm At The BBQ

Not a lot of DOF at f/5.6. Might be an ok portrait lens with studio lighting. Can't wait to try it.

250mm Along The River

I've had a few opportunities to shoot with the new Carl Zeiss 250mm f/5.6 Sonar lens. It is super sharp. It is also huge. Longer and heavier than the 500 c/m with a 120 magazine.

Do you have places you just love to shoot? It isn't that there is something here I've not shot before. But I love to try different films, lenses, chemicals. I never tire of getting a good shot here and I'm sad when I don't.

Picking Pumpkins

Picking Pumpkins

You know how choosing the right pumpkin(s) for your purposes can take some time, searching through all shapes and sizes until you find exactly what you're looking for? We just went through that experience a week or so ago, and had a lot of fun with the grandkids who definitely wanted 'big' this year. None of those 'small kid' pumpkins this year… well… except for (almost) 1-year-old Weston who didn't seem to mind small. ;)Kudos to all those hard working people who actually get out into the fields… pick the pumpkins… load the trailers… and unload them again in the display area, making it easy for the rest of us to angst over this one or that one… full stem or no stem… squat and round or slim and tall… smooth or bumpy. And if you're anywhere near the South Elgin, IL area… the selection is good and the prices are GREAT where these particular pumpkins were headed to. Check out the location on the map… and enjoy! =)

Falling Apart

If you live in Elgin, you know it. Folks just refer to it by it's street number, 321. It's slowly but steadily falling apart. The house is still beautiful. The grounds get a little more unruly every year. The lamps are broken. The fence is decaying. It won't be long.

I return to a familiar subject, an alley in Elgin, to capture the fall color.

Actually, we call it "Al's." They serve the best malt on the planet. Good food too.
