Quasi Feral

One of the local quasi-ferals, who can almost always be found hanging around the Northview Avenue access point to the Monon Trail. He's super friendly, and will sometimes perch like a gargoyle atop the trash can there by the park bench and survey passers-by. Those notched ears tell you that he's seen some things in his time.

I photographed him the other night while out walking with Bobbi, using the Nikon 1 V2 and the stellar little 1 Nikkor 18.5mm f/1.8, the equivalent of a 50mm prime on the little 1" sensor.

It's really a shame Nikon flailed so badly marketing the Nikon 1 system. By the time they got around to deciding maybe traditional photographers and hobbyists might be interested in a quality interchangeable lens system where you could fit a whole panoply of lenses in a small pouch, the market had moved on.
