    Andrew, I think that there is nothing wrong in eaves reading.  This is a public forum and I don't expect anything to be private.  Even if I did, I wouldn't worry about you, or you either, Jeff. ...

    Thank you, WhyNot.  The Redwood Coast is a magnet for artists.  It is not just the beauty, but the isolation and sparsely concentrated population.  I work for some, making pix of their work, so ...

    Thanks, Dave.  It was great fun.  I picked several dancers and talked to them before they danced, asking them to play to my camera when they saw me along the route of the dance.  They were all ...

    Oh, no, Jeff.  A festival tent, eh?  Do you don a cloak, wrap your head with a Turkish towel and tell fortunes?  As The Great Man said:  "Please count your change before leaving the window.  You ...

    I really like the pastel sky in the last one, Joe, and it is a great composition, too.  I used to roam that stretch of coast in 1969, when stationed at Ft. Ord, with 36 precious frames of Eastman ...
  • Definitely a stunner, Bruce.  Both the foreground and background pop that rock wonderfully.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Wow!  Both beautiful, Bruce.  A great landscape and the color in the second is great.  Very nice work;  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, Joe.  I appreciate it.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix

    Unusually hot weather here on The Redwood Coast and flowers are blooming nicely.  Have a look.  Rich E5, Leica D 14-150, FL 50 E5, Leica D 14-150, FL 50 E5, Leica D 14-150, FL 50 OK, WhyNot, you ...

    Andrew, I worked and lived in Scotia, 1980-1982.  My daughter was a young child there.  We played with the geese and the otters, and caught lots of snakes. Nah, their eyes are not looking at me, ...
  • Thank you very much, Dave.  I am happy that you prefer the second as I put a great deal of work into those seven pix before I stitched them, then put a bunch more work into the pano after it ...
  • Thanks, Andrew.  I used to shoot lots of sunsets and sunrises, and for nearly  sixty years I concentrated on them.  Back in the seventies, while attending lectures at The Brooks Institute, a ...
  • Well, I got the ZD 50mm macro around 2007, IIRC, and did not use the EX 25 after that.  Currently using the computer with one hand, I couldn't possibly find out.  Though I was very pleased with ...

    Andrew, I thought your title was the only way to describe this post. Understanding that it is much easier to get forgiveness than permission, I borrowed it. Rich This is the original redwood mill ...
  • Great pix, Andrew.  Each of the ladies look like they not only survived, but flourished.  The young lady in #1 through #4 has a particularly expressive face.  Very nice work, indeed!  Rich http://p ...
  • Owen, the EX 25 is especially useful with the ZD 50-200.  You pick a distance, then pre focus with the auto focus, manual focus AND with tiny adjustments in the focal length (zoom) to finish ...
  • Interesting, Bruce.  I like it, but it troubles me. It puts my mind in the same place as the science fiction I read as an addiction, back in the 1950s.  It makes me look at it instead of moving ...
  • Sorry to hear about the knee, Jeff.  I hope it recovers completely.  I should have died, or worse, from the original injury in 1971, but the doctors at U.C. Irvine saved me, so I am very ...
  • Thank you, Bruce.  The E-M5 loves The ZD 7-14.  It won't focus it, but The 7-14 doesn't need to be focused, anyway.  The color they produce together is almost sticky to the touch until it dries.  Rich
  • Thanks, Jeff.  I had to have some cervical work as I was taking way too much of Rx opiates.  That prevented me from enjoying a wee beaker, and that is the only reason I allowed the procedure.  OK, ...
