    :confused:

    Confused ? Well so was I ! But it means that I will try and shoot a flower shot every day with another lens, until I run out of lenses :rolleyes:

    Today I started with the G1 and the Pentax/Cosmicar 25/1.4

    More tomorrow !

    Nice idea! I like your image for today too. I seem to be doing similar lately. Your next challenge is to name the flower.

    I'm going to suggest naming it Jennifer.

    Thanks, BBW !

    As for the number of lenses, views differ ! I think, not enough, my wife thinks, countless :biggrin::biggrin:

    But you're right, if I want to bring this project to a good end, I will have to inventarise the stock :wink:

    Anyway, here's today's image, shot with G1 and Nikkor 50/1.4 + extension ring.

    Day 3 was a rainy day with only a few sunny moments. Of which I took advantage to shoot this pic with the G1 and a Micro-Nikkor 105/2.8.
    Shot on tripod in the garden :rolleyes:

    Day 4 was quite nice, some sunny moments and some clouds. But still too cold for the season.

    Here's another azalea shot :)biggrin: because of Liza, I have to stick to flowers that I can name :biggrin:) with the G1 and the Micro-Nikkor 55/2.8

    (a lot) more to come,

    This is fun stuff Rafael. This far I like the Nikkor image the best, you got some calm and harmonic there. I'll be watching the play going on.

    Cheers,

    All the shots I have been showing so far, have been taken around my house. So has this one, in a dark piece of woodland, next to where I live, in the evening light.
    Maybe over the weekend, I'll go shooting somewhat further away :wink:

    I was looking for a subject to render the swirly bokeh of this Super Comat, and, in the end, I found the azalea to fit in best.
    In this picture, the PP was also adapted to reinforce the vintage look.

    My wife grows Saintpaulias all year long. I took this one outside to enjoy the light.

    I went to the sunday morning market in our village today, and shot this one handheld. Handholding such a long lens resulted in a lot of non-keepers :mad:
