I miss you already!

Some of you know that I recently had to deliver Christine, my beloved Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens, to Nikon Service Point (NSP) Berlin for urgent care, following a mishap amongst the ruins of the abandoned sanatorium of Beelitz-Heilstätten.  Well, she came back to me last week, truly better than new.  NSP Berlin (actually they ended up sending the lens to the Nikon GmbH in Düsseldorf) so impressed me, that I decided to give them Nikki (my trusty D700) for a good once over.  To be honest, I have had her as long as the D700 has been out, and she has never been in for maintenance (routine or otherwise).  Even though I regularly clean my sensor and mirror box, there Nikki really needs to be seen by a qualified Nikon service person to ensure she is in top running order, so I can keep delivering tasty HDRs!  In the interim, I will be shooting with my pocket camera, Leila (my Leica D-Lux 4, Safari Edition – love the color).  So, without further ado, here is what Leila helped me deliver to you today.  And, as for you, Nikki, I miss you already!

Oh man, I haven’t laughed this hard in a while. Great commentary to go along with a fantastic shot!

Thanks, Brian! Glad you like that. I do miss her already; “Tara”, my 24mm tilt/shift, is lonely without her.

This picture really looks like a computer game, such as Half-Life. Where did you do it in Berlin? I did not think that there is still such a subway station.

Hi Jens. Half-life was one of my favorite games, though Half Life 2 was amazing as well! I shot this one on the U55 line at the stop between Hauptbahnhof and Brandenburger Tor.
