One thing I've learned about Australia - there are plants that simply don't ever die.This is a creeper I really wish I did not have. Its been with me for 18 years, left behind by the previous house owners. It had already gotten into the garden and really, apart from having the yard guy pull as much out as he can, theres no controlling the damn thing. It *always* comes back.

I really like D series lenses as well. Nicely compact and mostly very high quality. If you don't mind the slight whirring of the camera's AF motor (I don't) they focus even quicker than their G counterparts in many cases. Unfortunately, no AF on Z bodies.Took this one in the morning, to ensure I had an easy keeper if I didn't feel in the mood like yesterday and no other shots were taken. As it turns out, I do have some other shots from today, keepers too, but am sticking with this for no other reason than I like this lens. In fact, what I've learned during this challenge is that I prefer the Nikon D lenses to the G lenses. They were made to be shot on film cameras so will inevitably render that way too, which I much prefer to the digitally correct G lenses.

I'm going to cheat a little bit today. This was shot last night, but as I had already posted my photo for the day, I will post it now as I doubt I'll get a better shot today. This is another attempt at a recreation of a famous painting, as stylized by my wife. This time it is Spanish Dancer by Pablo Picasso.
