    I didn't have much production this month, but I did try to be creative.

    My August centered around a $4 thrift store find, a Minolta Maxxum 50mm f1.7 35mm film lens. I adapted it to my Panasonic G7. The first four images were shot with this lens. The last image was also with a 35mm film lens adapted to my Panasonic G7. It is a Canon FD 28-85 f4.

    Here are mine from the Valle d'Aosta where I spent a short Holiday. Nothing artistic, just a record of my trip.

    I used a mixture of FF with my "new" D700 and my usual M43 kit.

    August has been blessed with a bit of spare time, an holiday trip to the Basque country, beachlife in Italy and a brief (but intense) business trip in the US with a very lucky walk during the blue hour in Chicago. This is the 5 I like more.

    In August I did 2 road trips to the PCH for photography to test my new camera and 2 telephoto lenses. Each trip was about 1000 miles of driving. Photography and video is a great way to escape the 105+ degree temps of Vegas. California has some great views along the roadsides. Thus, completed 2 road trip videos with a lot of photo and video content. With some slow motion of elephant seals fighting. To check out the videos, just google toxictabasco. It's on the YouTube. Thanks for viewing.

    Ian,
    That 4th shot is pretty impressive with that perspective. I'd be interested to how you managed it.
    Thanks,
    Eric

    Thanks Eric. There was a gap between two pieces of overlapping armco that I shot through, while laying on my stomach to get a ground-level perspective. Shot with a 300/2.8 on my D500.

    Thanks for that. They were taken in the same spot just minutes apart. It was the lens--I had nothing to do with it!!

    I shot so many great pics of Spitting Spiders this month, but will throw in a couple of other Macro shots for variety.

    Spitting Spider found in my bedroom, that I just relocated outside.
    GX8 w/P100-300mm & Raynox DCR-150.

    Guinea Paper Wasp. It didn't seem to mind me getting very close, and I later realized it was stalking this caterpillar. At the end it flew away with part of it.
