On board of American Airlines flight London - Los Angeles. A "decent" meal in the hennery ( where chicken are grown) class obviously !
-
A couple of minutes before landing in Los Angeles
-
J. Paul Getty Museum by the Architect Richard Meier in good company I must say.
I have always loved his Architecture.

Amazing how these two images fit together as siblings from the same father! Only an architect could pull out this adjacent pair from a myriad of possible pictures of the Getty to go with the picture from the pkane!

The sky and round feature are motifs in common and the pairing is beautiful!

Now that you have the sky through the windows, the change to rectilinear architecture works. I think you are going to have a magnificent and coherent set. Here, color is king!

Hi, Antonio,

All lovely, and looks like a nice trip.

I assume you will be visiting the infamous ZIP code 90210.

Best regards,

Doug

Fabulous shots, Antonio. I agree with the others that the window shot and that of the Getty work so well together. Hope to see many more of your photos and hopefully some of you and anyone you might meet there! :-D

When I gave a title to this thread I wrote in capitals but the system turned them as if they were a sentence.
I wanted CA / USA

In US I found, as expected, my old Nikon lenses and my macro rings bought in 1974 !
I was lucky that my son had bought an adapter ring so the lenses can be used on Canon cameras at home.
I bought - it arrives today late evening - an adapter for the Panasonic GX7.
So, I will be able to use these exceptional lenses - the 85mm f/1.8 is a jewel and so is the 50mm f/1.4 - with the m4/3. At home I have a 200mm f/4.0 and a 30mm f/?
This makes a lot of new toys to play with.
I am sure that the 85mm in the GX7 - 170mm - will produce beautiful photographs.
The same for the 50mm - 100mm - with nice bokeh !
But the test is for tomorrow. Today my grandson is going to the pool and I will have no time to play !

Antonio,

Which is yours? The fellow with the large blue truck? He looks spiffy in those goggles! Perfect way of bringing up kids! I missed all that!

This is a classic. The lighting makes the mood. Since you have mentioned the Nikon lenses, was one used here?
