JamesD2's recent activity

  • Impressive looking ramparts.  Did you get any images looking down upon the St Lawrence? it's hard to believe that the French lost the battle to the English firing from the river if my memory ...
  • Good morning, Hal. I have to admit to enjoying seeing your "morning" images. I love the pastel colors of the early morning sun and the ship simply adds to the image's interest. I'm amazed at the ...
  • I can imagine the residents there putting a jack o'lantern in the tree come Oct. 31. It would make such a great picture. Thanks for looking.
  • Nice catch, Hal. When I took Lin back to Ontario, Canada and up where my son lives (Fergus) we visited several small towns that have Amish settlements nearby. Lin was ecstatic but soon found it ...
  • Thanks for looking, guys. :)
  • These re my two favorites. I love the early morning light that you've captured. It's such a peaceful time of the day... so pure. Keep them coming.
  • Created discussions Hallowe'en Tree
    Taken on our walk this evening with my HTC Windows phone. There was a raven sitting in a tree outside this house near the river around the corner from us. I've always thought of this house and ...
  • Give me time to research this. In the meanwhile, can you share your online jewelry store site with us? Best regards.
  • What a glorious setting for a beautiful home. You've composed it beautifully, Hal. You know... all I could think was: I'm sure glad I don't have to cut that lawn or clean all those windows! LOL
  • Replied in Kodak AZ 651
    You've been missed, Ed. Thanks for the heads-up!
  • That is such a neat comparison shot, chiue. Approximately how many years separate the two shots? BTW...the first picture's colors really have stood up nicely to the test of time.
  • We never felt anything, Hal, but then again, we were sleeping at the time. If the plates drop vertically out in the ocean, Lin and I are in major trouble from the possibility of tsunami. We'd like ...
  • Very nice, Jim. Particularly like the shadow of the bottle and wine glass cast on the wall by the late afternoon sun AND the easy smile on your subject. Wish I could get Lin to allow me to take ...
  • I enjoy your pictures, Hal. We seem to be drawn to similar subjects. BTW... I'm not sure you're aware that I grew up in Niagara Falls, Canada. Spent my first 52 years there. Dad and I drove to ...
  • Ah... 60's is perfect. We're also having a mild summer but then being on the coast most summers are mild. I like wearing a light jacket when I walk on our beach. BTW... my wife said that the ...
  • Replied in Amish Buggy
    But Michigan isn't Amish country... is it? When you said that the buggy passed you, at first I imagined you were driving and then realized that this didn't make sense on so many levels! LOL Nice ...
  • Absolutely glorious. Good choice of words for your subject title. Those guys sailing are getting an early jump on things. So... what is the temps that time of day? Are you having a warm summer? ...
  • Replied in Bridge
    Love the lead-in with the white fence. Very nicely composed. These old covered bridges are a part of Americana and deserve to be preserved. I'm reminded of Sleepy Hollow when I look at yours. Keep ...
  • I hear you, Hal. I'm not 70 yet but just turned 68 so I'm breathing down your neck! LOL I used to run the 100 yd in 12 seconds back in high school. Now I'm winded if I even job across the parking ...
  • Ah... thanks for the explanation, Hal. Last couple of mornings I've felt "off" after the walk - as though it was too strenuous to plow through the soft sand to get to the packed sand which makes ...
