Trying to shoot the moon
Jane here
I look at this and have the urge to say "Murika!" Joe writes, "You get the moon and the lens big, what suffers? DOF for sure. The shot was racked out to f11. Otherwise the moon looks like an out of focus blob in the sky, which it sorta does even at f11."

Skip rope, late light--in Shanghai
Jane here
Joe's had an extraordinary time in Shanghai.  He has also proved that you can  skip rope in doors.  Beautiful.

Joe will often remark that he is a faces kind of guy.  It doesn't matter what kind of face either.  Here's a dog he encountered on  one of his strolls around NYC.

Joe Lectures at NYBG April 29
Jane here

The +The New York Botanical Garden is always a beautiful place to visit and on the evening of April 29, there'll be one more good reason to go.  Joe is giving a lecture called *The Nature of Photography:  Life in the Field."  You'll get some stories  and how-to's on the best way to photograph someone outside of a studio setting.   Seating is limited to reserve your place now.
