Onboard safety is important, but we aren't fanatics, are we? These two pieces should cover most needs, I guess... unless you're a Buddhist of course. Then you need neither

colors. Honestly brilliant.
Grandpa, why does a gyroscope work, and how? he asked.
Ask your grandma, I said. He went to grandma , she said. Ask grandpa.
Grandpa asked me to go ask Newton!!
Rayyan, do we keep gyros in the house?
Thanks, Matt and Ryan, for your kind words.
Yes, Rayyan, you can indeed change the book
Matt and Rayyan, masterful shots!
Taking photos from a moving vessel is an interesting challenge. You calculate the number of seconds to the best perspective, and just when you are there, the boat rolls or jumps. And there's spray and vibrations and stuff everywhere. Still, it's great fun. I'll be doing more of this
D80 with 80-200 AF-S @ 200mm and f/3.2
Of all sharp items in the world, the Nikkor 80-200 AF-S must be among the top three, only surpassed by someone's mother-in-law's tongue and an ancient Japanese Harakiri knife.

Your marine shots are top class!
Matt, Osman: Thank you for the kind words. ( Newton ).
We are at the end of our trip to Stockholm...the Arctic and the people we might
share some other time.
Let's take two posts to give our lasting impressions of Stockholm...
Our flight leaves for Frankfurt after sunset. So what better way to close this journey with how we started this story...with the light.
Thank you for having been with us.
I saw this young lady when I was walking back to my car after lunch. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

Due to the appearance of some unusually clear thoughts this morning, I've decided to do most future images postings under the "Images to share" forum, where I've started a thread called "Asian images". This is not because I don't like it here (rather the opposite actually), but I'm lazy, and by this arrangement, it doesn't matter what camera I use. The photos will all be in the same thread, and my dysfunctional brain can free up some bits for other uses, like remembering what I'm going to have for dinner and where
Five, or six, weeks of Seafair started today in Seattle (sometimes it seems longer!). That means little and big parades, neighborhood festivals, hydro races, Blue Angels flying overhead (if they can afford the avgas?), pirates, clowns, commodores, princesses (no princes?), a King and Queen, and the fleet's in town (a few ships anyway).
Today was the Wallingford Kiddies Parade. The route is a few blocks from our house. Behind me, as i sit at the computer, there is a box with some photos of myself, my sister and my brother riding our bikes in the parade. We were decked out as King Neptune, a mermaid, and a seahorse with yards, and yards of colored crepe paper (highly flammable; couldn't do it today). My brother got first prize in his category.
Anyway, here's a few photos from the parade. thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

having you share Seattle with us.
that sparkle. Lovely.
joy of the fair. The joy of the children. And of course the joy of the photog.
TR, these remind me of the cottages in Truru & Provincetown, Cape Cod, Ma.
Nice Light & Color & Summer Feel!
Yes, marvelous light and color, TR.
Thanks gents! The light seems especially nice when you're ten miles off the coast. Early morning rocks!
Wonderful serenity, Tim.
Perfection in every aspect, exposure, composition, rendition - everything.
Thank you Steen and Lloyd. Greatly appreciated.
And I love the lines the windows make on that building Steen! Very "M.C. Escher!
