Hi, said the Sphinx. Staring as he had done for centuries.
Hello, I said. What brings you here ? I asked.
The Green Card, said the Sphinx, sheepishly. Avoiding to meet my eyes.
And you Rayyan, asked the stone. To give me company, perhaps ?
No, I said. I am passing through. An alien, if you will!
The Sphinx was nervous. I could see.
A Legal Alien, I added hastily.
The Sphinx relaxed. Continued to stare..at nothing. Like for another few centuries.
Thanks guys as always.
Lots of thanks to Loyd, Rayyan, Matt, Hermann, Steve and Leif for your kind words about my rail yard shots.
And Leif, the railway station is Østerport Station.

Allow me one last one, just for the sake of the light from the low winter sun
Thanks a lot, Jorgen.
Don’t quite know about 'best one'.
I do see what you mean about content and story.
However, I still think I prefer the above backlit shot that Leif just re-posted, because of its classic, graphic qualities that somewhat reminds me of my long gone Tri-X / Rodinal / D76 etc. youth (despite being a colour photo).
Probably just getting sentimental here
"Come Fly With Me"
STEVE!!! WOW!! Great stuff!
A 5-frame panorama pre-sunrise this morning.
Como - Georges River Panorama by peterb666, on Flickr
Taken with my Nikon D90 and Nikon 10-24mm lens - 5 shots at 10mm and stiched together to make a arc of over 270 degrees. The raling you can see on either end is from the same jetty. Click on the image or the link to go through to flickr if you want to see it in a larger size (up to 2400 wide).

Hi I took this picture this evening at sunset. I tried to take picture in a different way from the classic picture of the sunset. This is the result: a river of colors in the sky.
Rayyan, just so you'll know you're not the only one around here...
Not that it happens often, mind you, but guess how I can tell when I'm in trouble?

Well maybe this will give Mimi a small smile; a friend ran the Disney Marathon last weekend with her Tinker Bell costume and puff balls on her shoes (2:42:11) I think.
50 yrds from finish
That is great! (Awesome time too! Give her our congratulations. )
It was good running weather and "flat" course; she was hoping for a 2:37 but this was her third Marathon in a months and her legs didn't agree.
BTW, "Awesome" is Mimi and her success.
Rayyan/Francesco/Steen/Peter/Steve/Tim/Lloyd/Tetsrfun(Steve): Gentlemen, thank you for sharing your great photos!
I was fortunate to get my hands on a lightly used D3x a few months ago, so I suppose it's time to show some images
Note: some of these were posted on the FM forum, but they have been completely reworked (and I hope improved) for this posting.
I'm absolutely delighted with the IQ of the camera. It has had some expensive side effects though , like new Zeiss & Nikon lenses, standard print size has jumped to 17x25 inches etc.
