$5.00 for an egg cream! A47 The last time I had one of those Brooklyn classics they were 25¢. Of course, that was 1963, the year I graduated from high school in Brooklyn. Rolleyes

Ravi, it looks like you had a great time. Thanks for the photos.

Ah, yes, Barry, the 2¢ plain. Do you remember mello rolls? Memories. I graduated from Sheepshead Bay in '63, it's third graduating class.

Not only Mello Rolls but Mr Peterman, the man who owned the candy store.He used to give me the paper to lick after he put the ice cream in the holder.

For me, it was Mr. and Mrs. Wolf. We lived on Avenue U and they had the candy store on the ground level, they lived in the apartment above the store and we lived in the apartment above theirs.

Not only effective documentation of the experience, but the images are amazingly colorful, as well. Very nicely done!

Great shots Ravi!

I'm so happy to hear that you fixed the d7000 backfocusing error - once I fixed mine, my camera's potential became all too clear.

Gentlemen, thank you for the kind words.

Bryan, thank you for allowing me to correct the back-focusing issue with my D7000 ... I didn't think it would be so easy to do, and was planning to take it to a camera shop.

This only applies if you're using the auto-focus, Celestino ... Undecided

If you learn to use the autofocus system, it is quite rewarding. I'm still learning, but I keep it on 9-pt focus (square of 3 x 3 dots), and AF-C (continuous so if I flinch, it adjusts before I take the shot). With this option, you can move the directional pad (left, up, right, etc.) to change where the focus point is in the frame. It's a GREAT system!

Sorry. D7000 talk gets me pumped up. Back to the OP... Smile

I suspected as much ... Dodgy

You don't own a cellphone, so why would you use auto-focus on a camera ... Tongue
