Hi Ric,

Excellent stuff!, my favorite is Silver "Star pulls out of the station", and
I like very much too the spiral staircase. 

Your usual good eye make a pleasure see these pictures, in my other "R" life
it was similar for me, and now I use frequently the 35, except with the M3
that compose with the 50 frames is a pleasure, and IIIF.

Saludos cordiales

Things change.

In my previous (SLR) life, I probably shot fewer than 100 SLR photos with a
35mm lens. That's over 30-year period. Realistically, the only time I used a
35 was when I pocketed my Olympus XA.

In my rangefinder incarnation, the 35 has become my walk-around lens.  
All of this Week 19's shots were with my CV Nokton 35/1.2.

It's a little heavy, but I like the occasional narrow depth of field.  
(Time to buy a neutral density filter for it.) Must trot out the Ultron a
little more often to reduce muscle strain;^)

Is shallow depth of field going to become a Photoshop skill with 28 becoming
the new 35 on the M8??

Week 19 offerings:

The Silver Star pulls out from Raleigh.

Priming the happy hour pump, the beer delivery man works his magic.

Couple talk at the bus terminal.

Reading and waiting for the bus.

A patient dog with a distracted owner.

I have no idea what is happening the this kid's head -- a 30-second portrait
at the Amtrak station.

OBAMART -- an artist takes up a short storefront residence for primary week.

Better parking than it appears.
