More Nikon/Nikkor Lens Problems: 18-200mm Autofocus motor fails
Posted by: srp on Tuesday, July 08, 2008 - 08:54 AM

When we went down to Tallships Fourth of July weekend, I found that my one year old lens, an 18-200mm ED-IF AF-S DX VR Nikkor, wasn't working right. The Autofocus wasn't working correctly: the motor seemed to not be functioning at all (I eventually confirmed that it was the lens, and not the camera). Once again manual focus worked fine, so I still took a handful of pictures.

Although I bought it online at Pictureline, my local store, Abolins Photography, took care of shipping it back to Nikon. Within a couple of weeks, my lens was back and working correctly. Cheers to Abolins Photography for helping me out, I was sorry to hear today that they will be closing their doors.

Highline CC Boat Trip
Posted by: srp on Monday, June 30, 2008 - 08:40 AM
We attended the Highline Community College Benefit Auction this year. One of the items that our group bid on was a day trip around Puget Sound in a 50ft (or so) cabin cruiser including snacks and some delightful company. Steve, Jemima, Stephanie and I met our host on the northeast side of Commencement bay. After getting underway, we picked Mark up, from his Vashon Island home.

Texas 2008: The Vistaski
Posted by: srp on Friday, April 18, 2008 - 08:46 AM
As part of our spring vacation, we visited Steve and Carol and spent most of the time at their new vacation home the Vistaski, at Thornridge. It was really great to see the fruits of their labor. It wasn't warm enough to spend time on the lake, but we did go on some walks around the ranch, checked on the bluebird houses, and went into "town", Corsicana, were we saw a park that holds the first western oil well. We also got to meet Walter and Benny, Steve and Carol's English Springer Spaniels which we hadn't met before.
