wow, this is your daughter's camera? good on you, very charming photo!

just spent a few days in Jakarta. I hardly ever do candids of people any more, usually ask them if I could take a photo, in Jakarta I was surprised that more people, when they saw me carrying a camera, asked me to take a photo and posed than I had dared to ask, amazingly friendly people Wink

thank's Renato Smile
I mentioned that I was in Jakarta only three days, all photos were taken during late afternoon to sunset only, hardly took any on day 2. Considering that I am very happy how many I managed to take that are good enough so I dared to show already, should there really be even more? Wink
I'd think I showed the better one's already, but ok, a few more

Thanks.
My father's 55, I'm 33 (in a few days), so I don't know if I can be put in the "very young" category. True is that I often feel just like when I was 16, so it's ok Wink

I love seeing places and people i will probably be able to see in person, so the more you post, the better.
The attitude the people in your pictures show towards a stranger with a camera is so different from what I would expect in the places I know (i.e. europe), really nice to see.

haha, young and old sure a relative terms. My age is close to your father's, have no idea how all these years passed that fast. Nopt long time ago I used to feel like a teenager too, now with aching back and less energy it has become less frequent Wink

I was very surprised in Jakarta too, in Vietnam, where I have spent more time and taken more photos than anywhere else these last few years it's not like this either. Often the most poor are the most friendly, and curiously, after having spent more time at a place I usually have less and less contact with them Sad or let's say I had the bonus of a newcomer Smile that I speak quite some Indonesian helped too

A couple of pics from the last visit of my niece Nina.
She lives in Berlin, so I can't see her often, and I'm always amazed at how much she grew up in the last months.



Nina & Fiuto:






All shot with Sony a55 + Mamiya macro Sekor 60/2.8 in available light.

In #1, I regret you cut her head on top.

Thanks Olivier:
I agree on #1, I would have liked to keep her whole head in, but i had no room to step back nor time to change the lens, as she was unusually calm and right in front of a window with a thin curtain that gave a very nice light, so I had to hurry to get the combination of light and expression.

I didn't see a Sports contest, so am posting this here. I went up to Stevens Pass in Washington state to go skiing and they were having a juniors GS race. It was really fun to watch these young kids flying down the mountain! I only had two lenses, both about 35 years old -- a Nikkor 28mm f3.5 and a Nikkor 200mm f4 AI. These images are cropped highly from the full-frame image. The D600 had a hard time keeping up with the action -- frame rate not high enough -- but I got some useable shots, thanks to the 200mm. These were shot at ISO 400 or 800, f5.6 or 8, 1/1000th or 1/2000th





A few more images here.
