Re: Red-Winged Blackbirds In Focus

I now have a newfound respect for anyone who does bird photography. That requires so much patience and timing. So, great stuff here.

I recall seeing the first red-winged blackbird decades ago and how excited I was to finally see one.

Re: USPS to lauch a set of stamps in honor of Ansel Adams

The Postal Service has charged my card, and it looks like the stamps and field books are on the way.

Re: Camera recovered from Aconcagua glacier after 50 years

This was a very interesting story. The cold and dry weather certainly preserved the color film.

In addition to the Ansel Adams stamps ...

The U.S. Postal Service also is offering an Ansel Adams field notes notebook:

I've shot a bit of film with that lens and have always been pleased with it.

Re: 2024 Eclipse

That's a different look. The time lapse is very cool. By the time that I got outside, the clouds have moved in and obscured everything.

Re: The classy Contessa

This is one of my favorite cameras from Zeiss Ikon, although I might actually say that about quite a few of its models. As always, a nice display of work.

Name that camera!

I see film cameras showing up in ads. Here's one, and I believe it to be a Ricoh, but I can't identify the camera. This is for a Bulova watch ad.
