Hey Toad, I have been out of town for a few days – what a lovely surprise to come home to find one of my posts included in your wonderful compilation of photography. Thank you so much!
I thought this thread would be about something else, but it raises an idea you might want to explore: adapting old wide angle glass for your camera.
For instance I have a 40 year old Nikkor-N Auto 24mm/f2.8 lens that I use on my Canon 5Dii. It is a great lens though not nearly as wide as you seem interested in. It was relatively cheap, and…[Read more]
I am in the middle of a series that started with getting a small half-frame Olympus Pen in a junk store (does anyone else around here use half frame cameras – searches turn up nothing).
The half-frame images (two images per usual 35mm negative size) naturally suggest that combining adjacent images to make in-camera diptychs and panoramas could…[Read more]

Toad – I am so thrilled to be on this list again, and to feature jointly with one of your terrific posts as well. And, it was a great outing we had, so that makes it all the better. Thanks again for including my […]
@fidlito @admin I see that the way the image displays here that it is further cropped. If you click on it you will find the full image, as newly cropped. And, I should have said that I think these cropping suggestions worked out well.
If someone wants to add a shark and throw a revised version back into this ‘shark tank' thread, then feel…[Read more]
@fidelito – thanks for the suggestions. I have tried all of them. The only fail was getting a shark in the tank – I tried a circling dorsal fin along the edge of the tank just with a bit of dodging (my most sophisticated editing tool is LR4, so options are limited), but it was not convincing. I think your suggested crops were useful. I could not…[Read more]
@admin Thanks for the comment. This is perhaps where the nostalgia over rides the good photography. For me the view out and in are equally important in my memories – the setting of working in a place like this with a view like that. But, I think you are right.
@fidelto has cropping suggestions that might satisfy your comment to some degree, I am…[Read more]

Hi Toad – another great list which will occupy all kinds of my time over the next week. That microscope article is very interesting, love that kind of technology!
And, thanks for including my work today, and […]
I don't know why that did not load larger – my first upload to Lightstalking. A larger version can be seen here: http://burntembers.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/img_4136-edit.jpg?w=1308&h=872
24mm/f2.8 lens, ISO800, ~f5.6 (adapted vintage lens does not record aperture to EXIF), 1/250th.
This tank at a marine research station often holds the local shark (‘dogfish'), so I thought it a perfect submission for this forum.
This was taken during a nostalgic visit to labs with my dad who, after more…[Read more]
