This past week, I attended two concerts given at the 30th International 
Viola Congress here in Seattle.  With me was my trusty M4-P, and a new 
friend with whom I hope to have a long and meaningful relationship--an 85mm 
f/2.0 Nikkor from the 50s.  We're about the same age, and we see alike in 
many ways.  Sweet mother of Zenji Whatsisname indeed, Dante!  :-)

Anyway, apart from hearing some very fine playing, I got a number of very 
nice shots on T400CN.  Here's a couple I've scanned so far:

In the first one, I deliberately shot at a slow shutter speed so that the 
rapidly-moving bows would blur a bit.  I wish I'd gotten both bow hands and 
the pianist out in the open, but climbing over my fellow audience members 
was not an option.  No apologies or qualifications about the second shot.
