  1. The Photography Thread

    The Nikor 85mm is an amazing lens. Perhaps one day when the bulk of my disposable income doesn't end up in Oz I will purchase one myself.
  2. The Photography Thread

    I almost forgot this one. To me this image really showcases the bokeh Nikor lenses are capable of.
  3. The Photography Thread

    Here are some of my favorite images. I shoot a Nikon D3 with my trusty walking around lens a 24-70mm 2.8. 1) Portrait of Tootsie Tomanetz the 82 year old pitmaster at Snow's BBQ in Lexington, TX 2) A range photo from a deployment to Kosovo in 2006 3) An image from a herf last year of FOH member @rxavier1979 lighting a Bolivar Coronas Extra 4) A Vegas landscape 5) A little still life 6) A portrait of Richard Overton (Americas oldest veteran, 111) on an afternoon last summer. Sitting and sharing a cigar with him was a bucket list item I was honored to fulfill.
  4. I'm in, Prefer Sunday but I'll take any open day/slot.

  6. As with anything they are worth what you're willing to pay for them. That said I recently paid €270 (332 USD) for an OSU (Partagas factory) 1999 10 count box at auction. In recent years I have seen them go between $250-$332. Unfortunately I had a determined bidder going against me and I paid a premium.
  7. Originally a TV series but the Will Smith remake of Wild Wild West was absolutely dreadful.

  9. Happy birthday to my enabler! May you spend my money more wisely than I did
  10. Damn good time last night. Great seeing all of the usual suspects and meeting the first time offenders. The generosity among camaraderie cigar smokers has always and will always amaze me. Can't thank everyone for enough for participating and sharing. Thanks as always to @Shikar for allowing us use of the members area.
  11. Or conversely there is no place better to be than the herf where the sick can be attended to by not one but two doctors. We'll flip a coin, but @WhiteMamba has a mean side guarantees either way.
  12. Come on out. We save the hazing for the Dallas types who are masochist enough to attend. Speaking of, is @Baktun9 still planning to attend?

  14. We had a small herf at Stogies. It is indeed nice, but they do not allow alcohol. Which come to think of it may be wise given the ""characters" involved. How does one relieve the comic relief of their responsibilities? The owner has been so informed and is currently in negotiations with his insurance agent to raise his coverage.
  15. Let's give Casa Del Habano St Martin a hand

    Done. All the best to her in her efforts.
