    I appreciate your great sense  of humour, Dave.  I shall endeavour to get some pix which will have even more effect on you kilt that the wind has.  Hopefully, the pix will  not get me banned.  Rich ...
  • It was spinal meningitis, Stew, often fatal. It was while I was there. Fort Ord, at that time, had a basic training school. They were drafting as many as they could get, and regardless of physical ...
  • Replied in Evening Shots
    I do, Dave, and I am sure that the other members appreciate that you have dragged your dilapidated and decomposing old corpse out into the harsh (for an old timer) elements to make such beautiful ...
  • Well photographed and interesting pix, Stew.  I like the pipe.  In the second, the path leads the mind's eye into the distance, excellent composition technique.  Looking at the other pix of the ...
  • Great pix, Bruce.  Sea lions are a pain in the neck.  They get on the docks and won't get out of the way.  During commercial fishing season here on The Redwood Coast, you find them dead on the ...
  • WOW, Bruce.  That first one is one of the best sunset photographs I've seen.  When in Newport, The Oregon State University Aquarium is a must.  The Oregon Coast is unfailingly beautiful, and ...
  • OOPS, those are with The E-M5.  It makes pix as well as The E5, just much harder to use.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Do you remember Marvin Heemeyer?  Around June, 2004, after losing a zoning dispute, he welded steel plate armor to his bulldozer and levelled the town hall, the mayor's residence, and a few other ...
  • Once a month, year round, in Old Town Eureka, on the streets, in the stores and galleries, the local artists put on a show. All of the many businesses stay open very late, have food and drink set ...
  • Thank you, Stew.  That ugly box makes them a fortune in banquets and other functions.  Too bad, too, because it is so UGLY!  Actually, I've been working on Tantric Buddhism for around fifty years. ...
  • Thanks, Andrew.  That building is now The Ingomar Club.  No women allowed, except as guests on certain days.  Atavism at its most base and instinctive level.  Late ninties red was a bad paint for ...
  • Thank you, Craig.  Up until I started having gut surgeries in 2013, I walked 100 miles per month.  A pair of shoes lasted me 6 to 8 weeks.  I'm up to 50, now.  Another couple of months, back up to ...
  • Replied in long horizons
    A beautiful and interesting set, Stew.  Lots of old defensive battlements along the coast here too, but all from WW2.  That last pic of Rodeo Valley is beautiful and ethereal, very nicely done.  Rich ...
  • Beautiful, Dharma.  The light you caught in the first is great.  I dunno, it looks a bit like Alberta, Canada, to me.  Very nice work;  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Beautiful photography, Joe.  All of those restored little towns on The Western Slope, most along Highway 49, just waiting for the tourist's wallets.  Just like here.  South of Ione, in Jamestown, ...
  • Beautiful, Hans.  Higher altitude in Switzerland?  Don't you need oxygen for that?  Nice work;  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • That is one beautiful set of pix, Dave.  The third one is quite inspired composition.  The color in the last is beautiful.  I didn't realize, probably from hearing my Grandfather's stories, that ...
  • Thank you, Stew.  The huge banquet facility at left was added after the house became a private club.  It offends me, so I removed it for the first version of this shot, which I posted.  Rich http:/ ...
  • Thanks, Dave.  William Carson, a Canadian woodsman from The Maritimes, came to California for the gold rush of 1849.  That didn't go well for him, so he came to The Redwoods to pursue his original ...
  • A three hour, five mile walk is just right to get enough pix for this thread.  I've been walking the shores of Humboldt Bay for over forty years, and I haven't once gone out and not been able to ...
