Retired educator living with my wife in the Pacific NW. We enjoy traveling (particularly to Hawaii) and of course taking pictures.

Stamfordborn's recent activity

  • Very nice. The dramatic lighting (clouds, sky and horseman's coat) really make this image pop. Nice catch, Keith. Gotta be up with the sun, eh!
  • Created discussion thread Walk to Madrona
    The sun was shining (mid-50's) and off we went to one of our favorite coffee shops, about a twenty minute walk.
  • Those are wonderful shots, Keith. I'm certain the lady will love your images. The new cameras seem a good fit for you. No, I have no pets other than my wife (haha).
  • Totally agree with Jim's observations. Wonderful image quality, Wes. The best $20 you've spent, eh! (in my best Canadian) BTW: I love the backlit leaves and the many indications of approaching ...
  • French roast and blueberry scone! We think alike, Wes. haha We're blessed to live here even though the streets are difficult to navigate thanks to the over-populating of Amazon employees. BTW: I'm ...
  • Thanks, chiue. My sister still lives in Niagara Falls, my daughter in Ottawa and my son in Fergus. All are telling me that cold is on the way. Stay warm, my friend.
  • haha... you crack me up, Keith. I have two blowers and one actually does suck and mulch the leaves BUT it gets too easily clogged as well as sucking up gravel so I generally don't bother with it. ...
  • Thanks, Jim. Next time, I need to awaken myself with more coffee. LOL BTW: I continue to dislike the Panasonic Lumix. I do not like the menu (in spite of being able to customize it). It's probably ...
  • Created discussion thread Arboretum Morning Walk
    Not much going on so I grabbed my Lumix and headed off for a morning walk. BTW... I bought a Peak Design Cuff wrist strap and love it. Worth the money, in my opinion.
  • Thank you, chiue. Looking forward to seeing changes in your area.
  • Yes, the sound of the water was soothing. But Lin's warnings for me not to wander off were the other sound which reminded me that a wife's wishes are to be heeded. PS: I have a tendency to "wander ...
  • Thanks, Jim. The weather changed very rapidly from relatively warm to cold and brooding. We skedaddled to the nearest Starbucks to warm up. ;-)
  • Thanks, Jim... Wes. Wes, your mathematical skills astound me. haha
  • The lake is so deep that they built the bridge back in the 1920's as a floating bridge. This is just a few miles from our home.
  • Created discussion thread Lake Washington
    PixPro AZ525.
  • Such sad news, Jim. Glad you and yours are safe but how tragic for those who lost loved ones and homes.
  • Ha! This makes me feel much better. Thanks for making my day.
  • Improved focus accuracy is huge. Nice catch.
  • Wow! How many years after the fact does this update come? I wonder what it adds?
  • I'm admiring your shots, Wes. The first, in particular, is picture-perfect. So... a challenge for you (only if you have the time and inclination). Go back to the exact same spot that you took that ...
