    Nikon Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 G2

    For some reason, my credit card company raised my credit limit a whole bunch recently, so I decided to go lens shopping online today. I have a D810 and a D5600 and Tamron's version of the Holy Trinity of zoom lenses, 15-30mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm, all f/2.8. But they are all the first generation...

    Feedback Adding a URL to Signature

    Since I was honored with running the next Photo Challenge, I thought I could get a little extra traffic by adding a link to that thread in my forum signature. I'm familiar with the forum software, so I was mildly surprised that the Preview Signature button was missing. But I was even more...

I'm sure you've seen the word in reference to many subjects, not the least of which have been pointed out by your mother, an American eatery, NASA and Paris Hilton. Show me your best photographic illustration of...

    Ranches of Plumas County, CA

    I wanted to share some of my photos of one of my favorite subject matter, barns and other buildings made of old, weathered wood. I don't have to travel far; I live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. If you have to be tethered to an oxygen hose all the time, this is the place to do it...

    First Landscape in Eight Months

    I joined Cameraderie because @Kevin was running it and began participating to get inspired by all of you. I've shared some of my old work and viewed a lot of members' work. Finally, for the first time in about 8 months, I went out a couple days ago in search of a landscape photo. This is the...

    Show your face, veterans

    Not your face now, but your face when you were on active duty. I'll show you mine, I hope you'll show me yours. Hmmm... the system won't upload my photos again. I didn't see where there was a limitation on member uploads, so someone point me to it if that's the case. For now, I'll direct link...

    I seem to be more comfortable with animals

    This "portrait" had me shakin' in my cowboy sneakers. Guarding the truck at the grocery store.

    One of the First, One of the Last

    Soon after I got my first big camera (1982ish, a Canon A1), I went to a street party and shot this lit only by natural light at about 10 at night. As much as I enjoy making a good people portrait, I don't do it very often because I lack people skills in real life. I do like this one though...

    This guy put a roof on my house once too. I guess he does all kinds of tops. ;)

    Joining for inspiration...

    It was the early 1980s that I began to make photos I thought had something more than just snapshot quality. I had a good job, so I bought my first interchangeable lens camera, a Canon A1. It hung on my shoulder nearly everywhere I went and was pressed against my eye a LOT (or I would sometimes...
