Black History Month

We had as our guests at Stanly Community College in North Carolina today the Johnathan Blanchard Band. They presented a wonderful musical program of civil rights music along with informative stories and lessons from Black history in America. It was both entertaining and educational. There was a good turn out from the surrounding community as well as students, staff and faculty from the college. I enjoyed myself very much and learned a few things. Tech stuff: all of these photos were taken with the Nikon Df and either the DC-Nikkor 105mm f2 lens, or the Voigtlander 40mm f2 lens. These monochromes are straight from the camera with no adjustments. The ISO ranged from 1800 to 4000.

    Real nice Dan. The photos are captivating in more ways than 1. This is the first set of images from the DF that actually stopped me in my tracks. There’s a clarity that I have not seen in any other samples anywhere. Nah….it must be the shooter….yeah, sure…that’s it!

      Thanks Don. That DC-Nikkor has something to do with the clarity.

        Dan, we are brothers in eyes. I know you couldn’t be that clear….lol

        I would not suggest you show your stuff to the other FF crowd. Surely the DF is the leader of the pack……

        Last cookie found it’s Wray home this morning.
