  • What a close call! That happened to a friend of mine in 1973, he went all the way to the bottom (somewhere in the Trinities) and had to hike out, without knowing where "out" was. The hike took days. ...
  • A well timed shot! My UZI still works, if you jiggle the mode dial just right.
  • I like the collection of museum pieces parked on the tarmac.
  • These are scans from slide film, camera probably a Nikon FE. Below is a private railway, for carrying ore cars. The source of the rails is on the other side of that ridge, near the city of Ryolite, ...
  • Not very 'scape-y, but what the heck. I was out looking for 'scapes, at least. One of the usual suspects, or subjects... Mushroom was result of our brief rainy season. This, honestly, mystified us, ...
  • Replied in CO Mountains
    I like those, WN, they've got great tonal range, and the color sort of jumps off the page (in my head). B/W is so nice for evoking colorful thoughts, sometimes better!
  • Replied in Kraken
    That's right out of a mouse's nightmare! Great shot!
  • Replied in Nino...
    Nino's trick is to start rolling with a paw over his face like an otter, then start the body slams, then head bonking. We live on a boat, so the noise resonates and we know just what he's doing. ...
  • Thank you! The drug remains as Nino's savoir, I think. I have a prescription myself, for a very weird allergy that comes and goes without me knowing the allergy's source. I'm glad it worked for ...
  • Replied in Theo
    so handsome! so sleepy!
  • Thanks to a tip on this forum, I recently (a few months ago) bought a 6D new from Best Buy for $840.
  • Thanks, Andrew, that one was sort of my fave too. I love those old circuit styles, the wires, big hardware etc.
  • Yes, the not eating is painful to watch, is such a slow process. I'm glad Bugsy is hanging in there, too. Davis has a good reputation, but the bills do pile up. We did a sonogram-type imaging, but ...
  • Replied in Nino...
    Thanks, Mike, has been sort of a miracle. My hope is old age (he's only 15) has a few lives left for him.
  • Replied in Nino...
    Thanks! We're hoping he stays that way. At least for a while...
  • All shots with the 12-60 and E-1. Some tone compression may have been used. These steps were laid in 1911, after the original wood steps from the 1860s were replaced. The white building is from the ...
  • Yup, the cold scene is not his style, but the warm scene I expect he'll love.
  • Replied in Nino...
    ...has bad news, and good news, though it feels sort of funny just writing it down here on the universal Internet. Anyway,, meaning no disrespect, last December he stopped eating. We got him ...
  • Sun hadn't quite set yet, was playing peek-a-boo with clouds.
  • I think you have the same hopeful-of-rain/snow clouds that we have. With no wet results, unfortunately. The weather here is so sublime (is that sort of like being so pregnant?), that people are ...
