    Belafonte and his Nikons

    I remember seeing Harry toting two Nikon F's around his neck...one had a 300mm f/4.5 Nikkor and the other had the monster 85-250 Nikkor. One body had the F-36 Motor Drive and the other body had the F-250 Motor Drive attached!
    He looked awesome, wearing tie-dyes and a cowboy hat. It was early June 1966 or 1967 in Central Park at an Anti-Viet-Nam War demonstration. I was covering it for my college newspaper and was shooting old Ilford HP-S with an 18mm Rokkor on a Minolta SR7. I still have the negs...beautiful memories!

    Long live Harry, long live Hugo and the rest of the company... may they be there forever to piss you off and make you miserabe (for no real reason, only because they exist), you miserable rats. (now move this to the soapbox, where the miserable people have managed to make it belong).

    I'm with you George!

    Belafonte was the very first CD we bought with the very first CD player. My whole family are fans.

    I never knew anything about his politics until I read some of this stuff, which leads me to suspect that his importance in fomenting international revolution may have been overstated. Very entertaining singer, though!

    Cheers,

    Ah, drinkin' de TING, mon!

    For those not blessed with friends from the Islands, de TING is overproof rum, preferably Barbadian or Jamaican. I had to go and pour myself a glass to celebrate his birthday.

    Cheers,

    I personally just like to piss off those who are stuck in Cold War mentallity, I don't follow traditional ideologies.
    But, we are turning the thread into a political one just to please them.
    Happy birthday Harry!

    Dear Aristotelis,

    I couldn't agree more.

    Cheers,

    Quite honestly there's almost nothing anyone here can say that would piss me off. However, I suspect you really don't know what's going on in Venezuela. I do because I live with a Venezuelan woman and have traveled there several times and I have lots of friends who live there and I hear about all of the things he's doing to chip away at the legal/political system and is slowly becoming a dictator. I've met a woman (or her husband who is a pediatrician) who is not allowed to be hired by any company by law because she campaigned for the opposition in one of the former presidential elections. I've met people who are forced to allow any homeless person that walks by to live with them just because there are extra bedrooms in the house not being used. I've met people who have had houses taken away and give to others just because it was vacation house and not something they lived in all the time.

    Lots of bad things going on down there now. Whether you agree with me or not, I really don't care.
