Many thanks for your kind comments. Your positive feedback is always very much appreciated. Your "Cuisine Royale" looks fascinating. To the eyes of some people, things may look cluttered here and there. However, I have seen well organized neat clutters during my travels ... Things appear to be very well placed and functionally well organized at "Cuisine Royale". All the best, Leica 77
To the eyes of some people, things may look cluttered here and there. However, I have seen well organized neat clutters during my travels ... At "Cuisine Royale", things appear to be very well placed (photos of the King, his family, a Buddhist priest and a wall clock!) and functionally well organized (pots and bowls). It's a great shot!!! All the best, Leica 77

Many thanks for your thoughtful input and reflective comments. These days, I hardly watch TV because of exactly what you have just stated. I am also too busy, in part, to watch TV. There is just too much "hype", "glitz", "extravaganza" (like you say), exegerated "metropolitan craziness" and the list can go on ... You have probably noticed that I have recently posted some images with a theme to contrast what's traditional and what's modern in our societies. We can also draw a parallel between rural and urban. Your beautiful images also reflect the dichotomy. All the best, Leica 77
I actually considered buying one, since I have a gf who may or may not be moving in (Asian girls are born TV addicts). So I went to a big department store down the road here, one that had millions of models on display. But while the guys working there tried to explain all the more or less subtle differences to me, I just saw lots of colours flickering through my mind. Very disturbing
It did strike me though, that I could get a very large TV for the price of a very small lens
Joining the club -no TV here either for more 10 years (and mostly travelling before that). Just now a monitor to watch sport from time to time, which requires 10 minutes to hook up each time. And i concur, today's image is plain ugly.
Still love cinema though, so we have a theater room with an old CRT VP, with this time a terrific analog image quality. Great for films once in a while. No cable hookep up though, tape and dvds only.
Beside that, our 12 year-old daughter (the tiger one) haven't seen more than a couple of hours of TV in her life time. Her choice, even at her grand-parents' she never cares for it.
Interesting how you can live without these things, even though you don't make it a religion or even an active behaviour. Just happens, i guess.
Priceless, isn't it ?

Once again I've been away from this thread for a day or so and find so much that's wonderful. Excellent job, everyone.
And just to sort of close the loop on a photo I posted way back (maybe even in the previous Nikon thread), my small Garlic plot has yielded a nice bunch of a few varieties that should keep us stinky and happy until next spring.
Tim, the golden garlic is simply marvelous. Elegance in forms, composition and processing.
Jorgen, the passenger shot is top notch as usual. Is it from a ferry ?
Talking earlier about modern and traditional ways, here's a couple from an(other) old village.
An abandonned farm down the road...
And a shed on the side...
Many thanks for your positive comments. Watching the Tour de France must have been fun. I watched the Opening Ceremonies of the Beijing Olympic Games on TV last year and it was really enjoyable. Since then, I have not really seen anything on TV. All the best, Leica 77
Wonderful image as usual. One of the things that really impressed me about Thai people and Thailand is that they show so much respect to Buddhist monks and priests. When I was about to board a plane, there was an annoucement that Buddhist monks and priests would have the first priority boarding before the First Class - Business Class - Economy Class passengers. That's a very nice expression of people's respect. Cheers, Leica 77

One more shot of the locomotive. Image was processed with LightZone 3.8. No plugins were used in the processing of this image.
Kind of a sun shower really.
Excellent images, viablex1, etrigan63 and RichA. They are all very creative images. Very nice! Leica 77
Mother's day and The Queen's birthday here today, and since all royal holidays are steam days, I decided to go to the railway station to get a piece of the action. Since my only other activity today had been canceled, I soon found myself on the train, hanging as far out of the window as I dared. Here's one of the results:
S5 with 70-300 ED @ 300mm and f/8.0
And the Man in Charge, a real steam warrior.
S5 with Tamron 17-50 @ 50mm and f/5.6
the mighty god of asgard does it again!!
Awesome shots Jorgen.
Here's a small series I made back in the film days.
