  • It was a tough theme to sit out, so I didn't! :-) I even remembered how to leave a few comments. Nice job, Kim. I appreciate the votes that anyone threw my way, and was happy to send some out as ...
  • Thanks for the kind words, Kim, Endika, and Shirley. I've now put three in the X as well. Hey hey hey!
  • Replied in Hi there, folks!
    Three in the comp for me. The first time in a long time. Wheeeeeee, let's go!
  • Thanks. I've been playing a bit with camera-motion blur, including zoom. This was some random combination of factors -- and a little breeze -- that came together nicely to my way of thinking. No ...
  • Replied in Jazz Trumpet
    I completely agree about the B&W for jazz, Colin. I wonder how a tighter crop would work, maybe in portrait orientation, losing the mic. In my imagination, his face says "Drama."

  • Replied in Haha
    Glad you enjoyed it. :-D
  • is available here:
  • Replied in Exhaustion

  • That first one really sets the right tone and the ordering is first-rate. The final one looks like puff pastries -- yum!

  • Replied in A few
    We visited the National Botanic Garden today and, wonder of wonders, I got a bunch processed the same day. So I thought of posting some. Don't ask me what they are, other than flowers and such. :-) ...
  • WhyNot's suggestion of a photo of the garden in full junkyard context is a good one. Unfortunately, that hadn't occurred to me (though it should have, dangit!). Here's the closest I came, straight ...
  • and one more in the Close-Up thread. I took some household papers to a recycling yard for shredding this morning and it was the darndest thing; In the midst of your basic junk yard, with dump ...

  • Replied in Fly
    Fabulous, Phil! There are more dimples in those eyes than on a golf ball. (Yeah, I know they're lenses.) :-)
  • Replied in Dragon Fly??
    I gotta love a man who loves a challenge, Andrew. Well done.
