    Nice! This mother robin decided to make her nest in the crook between by gutter spout and the brick of my house, so the babies are a little out of reach, but not completely so that I can't sneak a quick shot inside the nest once in a while. Thankfully, she didn't build her nest in the bushes next to my front door, as a robin had one year. They eventually abandoned the nest because, well, it's a front door and it's high traffic. She's a good momma, though, and I see her constantly going back and forth from my front yard to her nest, depositing breakfast, lunch, and dinner to her babies.

    The hat-gang, in 1953/54 at Stalinstadt/Fürstenberg (Oder), later Eisenhüttenstadt. Constructing the "Eisenhüttenkombinat Ost".

    My grandpa 2nd from left.
    The four identical hats were probably a fun move.

    Very cool. That’s always fun to watch, especially if you can catch them fledging.

    And now for something completely different...

    Some recent shots from around Beacon, NY... made with a circa-1963 Olympus Pen F half-frame 35mm FILM camera. I've had this camera in the collection for years, but it had overexposure problems (the auto-diaphragm was slow to close), and I only just got it repaired. Good old Tri-X developed in D-76, then scanned the negs at 2400 dpi and did minor cropping and tweaking:

    The camera itself is a masterpiece of midcentury design, a tiny SLR that takes interchangeable lenses (these were shot with the 38mm normal lens, equivalent to a 55mm on a standard 35mm camera). It gets two vertical 18x24mm negatives in place of each standard horizontal 35mm neg, so I got 53 shots on a 24-exposure roll... and with today's films, there's plenty of resolution and detail in the smaller negatives. It's a shame that half-frame 35mm is a barely recalled format nowadays, I love this little manual camera!

    Olympus Pen was a very cool little camera. You are making me want to break out some of my old film cameras for fun.

    Been out of touch for a while, but catching up and enjoying everyone’s photos. I got some firsts in the last few weeks, so I’ll post a few:

    My first Bluebird at the lake in East TX:

    And saw this Night Heron out in the street at our house while taking the trash out one evening. I ran in to get my Camera and he flew up in a neighbor’s tree:
