  • Thank you, WhyNot.   I'm going to have to get a set of larger drives for my RAID array.  I have thousands of pix just looked at once.  All RAW, I'm thinking that if I have so many years backlog to ...
  • Thank you, Andrew.  Several of the largest rose bushes, are growing groups like that, currently.  I'm learning to compose them.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • I shouldn't tell this, Andrew, but what the Hell. A local, professional photographer had got fed up with Olympus and their now you see it, now you don't games and was selling everything Oly. He ...
  • That's a great effect, Dean.  The picture is mysterious without the explanation.  Great experimentation,  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Great pix, Craig, I love The Sierra.  I once rode from Carson City over Ebbetts Pass and down into the foothills then turned around and came back on 88 over Carson Pass, all in one day on my BMW R ...
  • The 50-200 is a wonderful lens, Andrew, as your pix show.  I bought my first long ago and would have needed nothing more except my copy was not happy with the EC 20, but fine with the EC 14.  So, ...
  • I'm happy to see you out and aboot, Dave.  Beautiful pix, too.  Maiden's Castle, eh?  Well, that's a good place to keep them as maidens with The Vikings roaming.  Your skies are always so ...
  • Replied in Hot Ford
    Oh yeah?  So you say.  Anyhow, it is my opinion that the problem with youth is that it is wasted on the young who squander it on sex, drugs and rock & roll.  If I had youth, I would not squander ...
  • A double-edged sword, Dicky.  Here in The Pacific Northwest and including Western Canada, we've had so much rain that the forests (and everywhere else) are overgrown with brush.  Soon, it will be ...
  • Great pix, Andrew.  Did you forget to reset your date and time, or are they all from last year?  Do you still have snow on the ground?  No flowers yet?  Birds still frozen?  The slow shutter ...
  • Replied in Hot Ford
    Craig, I didn't realize that you are old enough to remember Broderick Crawford in "Highway Patrol."  Now I realize that you also have to lie on the laundry room floor to do renovation, like ...

    Thank you, Monty.  I'm happy you enjoyed my ramblings.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Replied in Hot Ford
    It's fun, Andrew.  That event has been going on for decades, they changed the name to Fortuna Redwood Auto Expo.  People drive beautiful old cars up from The San Francisco Bay Area and from The ...
  • Replied in Hot Ford
    Dicky, I don't know what the prevailing mentality of the cops in Oz is, but here in The U.S., rural or urban, the police have got out of hand.  The courts and prosecutors are even worse.  The cops ...
  • Replied in Hot Ford
    No, Dave, I don't **** with cops.  The Los Angeles P.D. taught me that.  And now, they have tasers and they're much more likely to fire those things than guns, and they often make people have a ...
  • Perhaps when the dahlias appear they'll break the roses hold on me.  Right now, a few other blooms attract my roving eye momentarily, then the roses lure me back.  Oh well, it is a pleasant ...
  • Replied in Hot Ford
    When Ford designed their first V8, Henry was an old man. He must have had rheumatism or something sensitive to cold. He told his engineers to run the exhaust down through the engine block between ...
  • Replied in Lots of Roses
    Thank you, Brad.  Me too, that first one is one of my favorite rose pix, ever.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Replied in Lots of Roses
    I really appreciate your comment on the white rose, WhyNot. I worked on that pic for hours. It was spattered with a spray of tiny, black mud drops. I thought about rinsing it, but I didn't know ...
  • Now, now laddie, don't go painting your face blue just yet. I was just testing your recovery. Evidently, your injuries have only made you tougher. I am a student of history and I well know why ...
