If it involves looking up at the night sky or celestial bodies I dump it here.
Costa Rica 2000
Skiing and Snowboarding
Sony RX1R II
I fell in love with the RX1, so much so I wanted more. Faster AF, built in viewfinder, the articulating screen and 42mp. The battery life is still terrible though!
I followed my g/f on a work trip to NYC. The hotel was covered by her company and I got to walk around and see friends.
Crested Butte 2019

Chile 2019 for the Eclipse
photos of the trip and events leading up to getting to Chile to witness 2019's Solar Eclipse.
I finally got my hands on this camera 7 years after it was released. It's Sony's full frame point and shoot that is tiny and packs a huge punch.
Unbeknownst to me I have become and old man and I enjoy watching and photographing birds.

Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8
I bought this lens from a dude in a parking lot in Temple, TX. I had just purchased a D700 in 2008 and had no wide angle options. I was able to get it him down to $800 and I sure have gotten my...
Canon FD 24mm f/1.4 L

Images taken with my Zeiss C/Y lens.
Voigtlander 35mm f/1.2

I've wanted this lens for 15 years. I saw one for a good price and snagged it up!
Canon FD 50mm f/1.4
This one is a classic, super sharp and super affordable. My copy has some trouble with it's focus ring from time to time, but a little muscle always does the trick. If it ever stops working I'll just...
Zeiss C/Y 50mm f/1.4
Lucked in to this one when my Uncle gave me this and a 35 he bought in the late 70s with his Contax camera. The camera was toast, but the lenss are primetime.

Nikon 85mm f/1.4 AF-D

Nikon 105mm f/2.5 AI-S
