This is the little pond at one end of my road. I haven't seen geese here for the past fifteen years or so, ever since the mum-runners dropping their offspring at the infants school out out on the main road turned my cul de sac into a personal parking lot. One of the unintended consequences of the lockdown is the positive impact on wildlife.

I'm not sure I would regard Canada Geese as a positive gain, they are an introduced domineering species that shouldn't be in this country, but I appreciate where you are coming from. The same effects were measurable during the foot and mouth lock down in the countryside some years ago among species that have every right to be here.

Time to bring this little ugly beast out of winter hibernation. Yep this is where he wintered. No shelter, under the eve of the house. Pour in some gas, oil the choke cable (or replace it), and fire it up. Yes it needs 3 or 4 minor repairs (and a wash!), but it will pull the cart and some trash to the burn pile, just fine.

Day 10: Infected

“Out of my sight! Thou dost infect mine eyes.”
―(William Shakespeare: Richard III)―

My decapitated rubber zombie Head, who lives atop my bookcase, seems to have gotten infected.

A little dedication to my Nikon 100mm F2.8E.
Not the sharpest, not the most contrasty and doesn't really have a standout signature but it's been a loyal friend thru at least half a dozen system changes. The lack of the Nikkor build quality is actually a benefit in this mirrorless age.

Day 10, I feel like a homebound traveler looking for escape so I started rereading my boyhood favorite; Tolkien. That inspired today's image...

A seriously atmospheric - moody - mysterious - and quite beautiful iimage. And really nicely (and subtly) processed, too, Don.

I initially just saw the image, not the name of the poster, but....I knew it was one of yours!:biggrin: Love it.

Does it compare to any of the other E series, like the 50mm F1.8E for example?
