AS of June 23rd I have posted 168 images, one per day, taken with the Nikon Df. Due to travel issues I missed June 24th. So Now my 365 day plan is being adjusted.

So from this point on I will specify which camera was used.

Regrettably I have to discontinue my efforts to post a new picture everyday taken on that day with the Nikon Df. It has been a good run of over six months, however new workloads at my teaching job have begun to hamper my ability to maintain this pace. I have, hopefully, some new photo projects in the works that will show up on this site as they mature. AS time permits I will continue to post Nikon Df shots here but not everyday. Thanks to all who have shown interest in this project. See the Leica M menu on this site for a new photo everyday but not necessarily taken on that day.
