  • It's all funny, Dicky.  Back in the seventies, we had a movie production company filming here in The Redwoods (we have lots).  The man in charge on the whole shebang was a Scotsman with a burr so ...
  • Replied in Rose Garden
    Thanks, Andrew. As we used to say in Southern California, back in the sixties, "Reality is for people who can't handle drugs!"  As far as reality being painful, and oh is it, just remember this: ...
  • Replied in Rose Garden
    Thank you and you are a mind reader, Lou. I really wanted to modify that pic, but it looked so natural, I just had to leave it alone. I shot some young ladies at a Halloween party and they told me ...
  • Replied in Rose Garden
    Thank you, WhyNot.  The 14-54 is no slouch, that's for sure.  At 50 mm, the 50 mac, the 14-54 and the 50-200 are just about equal.  The 12-60 is close, but not quite as sharp.  But, when working ...
  • The blizzard is up in The Sierra.  Reno is down in The Great Basin at the eastern foot of The Sierra, at only 5K feet elevation.  Reno is worth seeing, It's " The Biggest Little City In The ...
  • Hey, Andrew.  I haven't posted on your "weekly OMD & four thirds and Instamatic, Brownie and Polaroid" thread because I'm taking a friend from Australia up the coast at 5, tomorrow morning.  He ...
  • Beautiful roses, Lou. Your shots are damn near perfect. That second one looks like the plant they use to make Dutch Ginever Gin (Wigle Whiskey) from. Watch out for that stuff, it will take the ...
  • Steve, I'm sure they put the cab up front on that massive locomotive in the museum to keep from par-boiling the engineer and fireman. The old Willys pulling the cooler is definitely for me.  I just ...
  • I really like that pic, rb.  The ZD 8mm fish eye likes to have something in the foreground, it makes the ultra wide aspect more pronounced. Here's one of me in a Redwood Tree.  E3 and ZD 8mm fish ...
  • Created discussions I miss Nate (Ravenwing Photo)
    Too damn bad he's no longer contributing.  His great photos from Maine, and his interesting comments really enhanced this forum.  His photography was very communicative of his circumstances as ...
  • Wow!  Nice composition, great color, and I can imaging wiggling my bum in there to sit on that bench and read.  Quite a unique picture.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • You have such exotic flowers there, Dicky.  I will count on you through the coming Winter here, to sustain me with your photos.  We have that genus of spider here.  My Scottish grandfather used to ...
  • Replied in Thistle & Bee
    That is really a beautiful photograph, Brad.  The colors and the background draw me in and I want to look at it for a long time.  We have those same thistles here in The Redwoods, and they will ...
  • Replied in garden harvest
    Oh yeah, Harri.  I'd love that.  I would add a bit of vinegar and some cucumber, leeks and onion.  Plus some sourdough toasted with a bit of butter, mozzarella and parma cheese.  I get carried ...
  • Replied in White roses
    Zin, I find white roses the hardest to photograph.  Your composition, with the angle from below really flatters them.  It is an unconventional composition and it works great.  I'm going to try it. ...
  • Replied in Shhhh...
    Guys;  I'd buy that Sigma 105 right now, but I'm waiting for a quote from Panasonic to fix the zoom on my Leica D 14-150.  I don't want to drain too much from my savings for micro four thirds. ...
  • Steve, since I was a little boy, I have wanted to ride the train from California to Reno in a major snowstorm. Many of the snow sheds are still in place. I want to ride over The Sierra when it is ...
  • Replied in Rose Garden
    Thanks, Rick. "Splinting" is a human condition in which you hold yourself in a certain position to avoid a position which is painful. I take a bit of alcohol, or a bunch of opiates and it feels ...
  • Replied in Rose Garden
    Thanks, Brad.  I, too, had never seen one.  I wanted to know, also.  There was a sign at the base of the plant describing it.  It was too far down to read and I can't bend down, until my guts ...
  • Replied in Spider Lily
    Beautiful flower and I like your dark background.  I noted your absence, too.  Glad you're back.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
