Heritage Village UAE : Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 shoot-out

Where the posh people of Abu Dhabi will soon live ... the three mega tower blocks!

Wasn't easy to shoot these leaves with the wind blowing ... focus , no-focus , focus , no-focus ... I need a newer body ;-) D700s / D700x I hear?

Hmm ... what ya looking at pussy cat? Don't you dare with them duckies, there are so many of them!

We spotted more duckies!

Feathered friends :-)

Random shots...

Small flowers and nice bamboo plant

One more ...

Adieu, from MD and myself on our Friday shoot-out ;-)

UAE Heritage Village - Feathered friends

Hello from the UAE Heritage Village in Abu Dhabi ... A really nice Friday out with MD - We were two Nikonians and some feathered friends ;-)

Most of the shots were taken with my awesome new Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D uber-lens, but a couple were taken with my more modest Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D. The body? As always ... my long-serving Nikon D80.

Thank goodness the heat died down for a couple of hours whilst we explored the Heritage Village!

It was a windy Friday!

I wonder what they were thinking about ;-)

I like these ;-)

So white!

Our funny friends ;-)

Oooh ... Tai Koh!?

By the water...

Heritage Village, Abu Dhabi - Here and there

One Friday morning ;-)

This is the UAE Heritage Village, in Abu Dhabi

Hmmm, time to change from my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D to the incredible 85mm f/1.4D

Saw this guy hiding ;-)

Random shots ...

Papaya .. and palm!

A desert lembu!

Day out at an interesting fort, near Heritage Village

On the way to the UAE Heritage Village (Near the Lulu Island Jetty), I found a "fort". Interesting photo opportunity ;-) with my Nikon D80 and Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D.

Quiet Friday ...


Friday in Abu Dhabi ...

What a strange mish-mash of stuff ... model boats and amusement park rides / arcade games!

Never far from the water ;-)

More shots ...

I like this shot!

More ...

Hmmm ... what's this about!
