Old Granary Burial Ground

A couple of images made at the gate of the Old Granary Burial Ground in Boston.  Located on Tremont street, this cemetery has many notables including Samuel Adams, John Hancock and Paul Revere buried here.  The gate of this cemetery is done in the Egyptian Revival style, using motifs from ancient Egypt.  Both these images show the gate.

A Night Stroll through Boston

Recently, I had the opportunity to take a quick walk in downtown Boston, around the Boston Commons area.  I had my trusty Nikon Df with me, mounted with the 50mm f/1.8G SE lens.  Here are a few image from that stroll.  I think they definitely illustrate the clean images the Df produces at high ISO settings.

Young Artist Redux

I received a few messages on the one image I had previously posted here so I decided to share a few more images from that series.  All shot with the Nikon Df and the Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 lens.

A wonderful man, John.  Kind, loving, and compassionate.  Full of all sorts of engineering knowledge – especially mechanical engineering and radio engineering.   Always helpful.  Always there. We had a chance to enjoy a very special Armagnac together recently at my home.  Very glad to have him in my life.

Young Artist

My daughter has developed into quite the young artist.  She sketches, draws and paints.  She’s currently very fascinated by Manga and has been doing a lot of sketches influenced by that style.  She’s also learned to ignore dad when he’s got a camera in hand!  I managed to shoot several portraits of her as she was sketching away one day, by the winter light of a northwest facing window.  This image was made with the Nikon Df, a remarkable camera that I will have more to say about in the next few days.  The lens used was the classic Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 lens.  One of my all-time favorite lenses for Nikon F-mount.  Shot wide open at f/1.2, focus was on the eyelashes, with the rest of the image showing the wonderful out-of-focus rendering that the Noct is so well known for.  RAW conversion using Capture NX 2.4.5.
