MUSTIQUE, ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES – We traveled today to Mustique to attend the celebrations surrounding the wedding of friends. We arrived in time for dinner and a kick off party. We were last in Mustique in January of this year. My last trip to Mustique As I’ve noted before this is a private island in the Grenadines populated primarily by the rich and famous.  Here’s a link to it’s Wikipedia entry: Mustique’s Wikipedia entry. Anyway, from evening one. Taken with a Nikon D700 with an 85mm f1.4 Nikkor.

Party at Yamanjá

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Back from Connecticut and a rainy weekend.  I had spent the weekend putting a relatively new (to me) camera through its paces, a Nikon D700.  I plan on using the D700 primarily for available light photograph in poor light, so I’ve put it back in its bag to wait for the next party, wedding, dinner or whatever.  For street use I’m back to my trusty Leica M9, which I prefer as long as there’s enough light to manually focus.  This picks up on my “Look up – don’t worry of it makes you look like a tourist” theme.
