The Nikon AFS 105mm f/2.8g is a stunning telephoto micro lens. What’s more it’s a fixed focal lens and therefore forces you to move and frame your subject properly. It captures colours beautifully, so much so that a picture like this one was uploaded as is from Lightroom, without even touching  the light balance. I must say that I am a crontrol freak and always shoot my pictures in M (manual) mode, and very often, I tweak the focus manually.

“Knee play” is the opening piece of Einstein on the Beach, Philip Glass’s famous opera (1979). For an extensive explanation of “knee plays” and namely knee play 1 and its random numbers, please check Nicolas Sceaux’s page. This is a close-up of my old Swedish computing machine, a pre-computer model from the 1950s which works, like Pascal’s calculator by adding and substracting numbers, hence enables one – through complex shifting mechanisms – to multiply and divide too. I used to be able to compute faster with this machine than typing on an electronic calculator. Please note that I’m not that old, I got that machine when I was 18 or so, and it used to be a sort of game for me to compare how fast one could use it. You are now entitled to listen to Knee Play 1. Don’t forget to buy the record!

Après le champ de coquelicots de la dernière fois voici quelques photos supplémentaires de cet endroitmagique, au Nord d’Amiens. La plupart sont l’œuvre du superbe objectif macro AFS 105mm de Nikon.
