Splish Splash

I am trying out a new-to-me 1.7x teleconverter on my D60. I have to manually focus it but so far I like it. Since I am unable at this time to get a nice 300mm + zoom I am very glad to have it. Here is one a goose taking a bath.

Daffodils Through An Old Lens

Today I had about an hour to play with in between varies chores and social obligations. I grabbed my D60 and an old Nikon 35mm film camera lens and set off to get some snaps in. I do not know about all cameras but when you mate a manual film camera lens with a modern DSLR the light metering can be less than optimum. So I snagged an app for my iPod that came in very handy today. The first photo is an unedited but slightly cropped shot from today. The second is what the app looks like on my iPod. I will try it out with my extension tubes as I shot macro later this Spring.

Momma Cat Through An Old Lense

I took this photo of our cat Momma Cat with an old 50mm lens off an old Nikon film camera. I used it on my D60 and set the exposure a little low for effect. Unfortunately the metering, or my interpretation of it, with this lense on was off a click or two but I still like the shot. Momma is close to twenty-years old so it is fitting an elegant lady should have her photo taking through the fine glass of an old lense.
