    Holy Cow! Miss a couple of days, and this thread moves on without you!

    CEH: Great shots, as always. That shot with the dynamic clouds in the sky in particular is really terrific.
    Dude: What an amazing portrait! Love it, love it! I like the look of that 1958 90 as well.
    Steve Chang: Really nice portraits as well. Is that Kevin Spacey hiding behind the blinds cords?
    Luka: As always, your shots are pure magic. Great set.
    Woody: Nice shot, and certainly not the typical view of Rockefeller Center.
    Dan: That manhole cover is very kewl. Nicely seen and captured. Loving your other shots as well, especially the potting shed. Brilliant color.
    Bluebook: Terrific b/w shots. Very moody; great stuff.
    Seattlesteve: Great shots from Hong Kong. I especially like that first one, with the woman's hand on the man's shoulder.
    Bill: Amazing shots from India!! We're talkin' National Geographic... at least! First to last, simply stunning.
    Daniel: Your "lazy" shots, are my aspiration! Love the one of the man with the scratch and win tickets in particular.
    MagicFM: Very kewl shots with the 18mm. Nice b/w as well.
    Jono: For once, I envy you your weather! Beautiful set.
    Matt: Glad you got your camera back. Great shots. Love the sax player shots. That "Moisture Festival" billboard is great!
    Charles: More magic.... great set. I especially love the one of the woman on the rocks. The light there is wonderful.
    Shiro: Wow! Amazing shots, and brilliant b/w.
    Cableguy: Love the shots from Bangkok, especially the little street performers.

    Hope I haven't missed anyone. I loved everything posted, so if I didn't mention your shot specifically, it was inadvertent.

    Ashwin, Matt and Steve: Thanks for the comments guys. Yes, we've sure had some weird weather this year. Ash, I think we'll be ok regardless.

    . . . . . the only world series I have ever attended! Standing room only tickets for games 1 & 2, paid a ticket collection $5.00 to sneak through the turn-style for game 6, and he was later busted and could not find a way into game 7. Bob Gibson won all three of his games (1, 4, & 7) and Jim Lonborg won two (2 & 5) and lost to Gibson in game 7. The cardiac kids in '67 were exciting, where previously the red sox were cellar dwellers for early sixties and a boy could get into the game for 50 cents bleacher seats and 75 cents for the right field grandstand.

    The power of pictures, thanks for evoking the memory!

    BTW . . . . . a beautiful shot!

    Bill, love the couple of captures with the 135 APO, great color and detail. The shot with the 21 in the grand room is stunning, and the 50 lux with Life imitating art is fun capture!

    Tofa, great shot of the open country and rolling green hills . . . . .
    . . . . . then the reflection shot is stunning, love the detail and symmetry, simply beautiful!

    ceh, wonderful B&W photography, the shot of the city street is special, love the sun burst on the hand rail, lighting in this shot is very nice!

    Mohammad, lovely shot of 'My Car,' the colors of the road and sky work well and blend in with the VW.

    Dan, beautiful photographs of you daughter(?) love the soft bokeh! The first shot is my favorite.

    Matt, nice shots, the sax player is special, a wonderful capture. Were they taken down in Georgetown?

    Dude, love your Bokeh shots!

    Lloyd, great before and after shots, Saturday to Sunday, . . . . . just when you wash & wax the car and put away the snow shovels . . . . .

    Charles, great shots of the coast line and surfers. All of them are quite nice but I especially love the second shot, black & white with the reflection of the women in the water, just a beautiful photograph!

    ShiroKuro, nice B&W with the older Leica glass! Thanks for the inspiration, I am going to have to break out the few older Leica lenses I have from the 50's and give them a go on the M9.

    Cableguy55, beautiful color and bokeh of the street performers with the 50 cron. . . . . . also love the bokeh in the B&W shot of the guitar player, nicely done!

    You blink and eye and the pages keep filling up . . . . .

    . . . . . thanks everyone for your contributions!

    . . . . . when out for a walk on Sunday, I came across this duck, all the rest of the ducks got up, moved on, and quacked a bit since I disturbed them . . . . . except this one who decided to just sit there and not move . . . . .

    What memories this evokes!! That really was a long time ago, but it is a season that stands out in my mind, as it does for Dan.

    The Red Sox really were pitiful for much of the 60s... I think they lost 100 games in 1965, for example. The 1967 season was a bit of a surprise, as I don't think anyone really thought they do much better than they had before. In my mind, two things stand out from that season: the first was Tony Conigliaro, who for me was about as exciting to as anyone in baseball (except for maybe Yaz ), and who was having a terrific season until he was beaned in August by a pitcher for the Angels. He was lost for the season, and I really thought that would spell the end for the Sox that season as well. Fortunately, I was wrong, and Yastrzemski, who was having his breakout season (the other thing that stands out), led them to the AL pennant, and the World Series.

    As much as the loss in game 7 was a huge disappointment, and it truly was, the season as a whole, "the impossible dream", was so amazing that I was able to get over that disappointment pretty quickly.

    I didn't attend a single game that entire season, as we were on a western swing of our pendular existence between my mother's hometown of Boston, and my father's home on "the Res", but I listened to as many games as I could get (we only had one TV station available on the res back then, and never saw a baseball game all year), and followed the Sox via the newspaper and The Sporting News. (My mother is a HUGE Red Sox fan, and we followed the team together. As a child, she sat by the radio with a scorebook, and scored every game. Now in her 80s, she still has stacks of old scorebooks.) Yes, 1967 was a memorable year!

Bob Gibson won all three of his games (1, 4, & 7) and Jim Lonborg won two (2 & 5) and lost to Gibson in game 7. The cardiac kids in '67 were exciting, where previously the red sox were cellar dwellers for early sixties and a boy could get into the game for 50 cents bleacher seats and 75 cents for the right field grandstand.

    The power of pictures, thanks for evoking the memory!

    BTW . . . . . a beautiful shot!
    Dan: Thank you. sir! Great story. It's in the window of a shop in Georgetown if you're interested.

    Tofa/Ceh/Bill: +1! What Lloyd said.

    The Red Sox really were pitiful for much of the 60s... I think they lost 100 games in 1965, for example. The 1967 season was a bit of a surprise, as I don't think anyone really thought they do much better than they had before. In my mind, two things stand out from that season: the first was Tony Conigliaro, who for me was about as exciting to as anyone in baseball (except for maybe Yaz ), and who was having a terrific season until he was beaned in August by a pitcher for the Angels. He was lost for the season, and I really thought that would spell the end for the Sox that season as well. Fortunately, I was wrong, and Yastrzemski, who was having his breakout season (the other thing that stands out), led them to the AL pennant, and the World Series.

    As much as the loss in game 7 was a huge disappointment, and it truly was, the season as a whole, "the impossible dream", was so amazing that I was able to get over that disappointment pretty quickly.

    I didn't attend a single game that entire season, as we were on a western swing of our pendular existence between my mother's hometown of Boston, and my father's home on "the Res", but I listened to as many games as I could get (we only had one TV station available on the res back then, and never saw a baseball game all year), and followed the Sox via the newspaper and The Sporting News. (My mother is a HUGE Red Sox fan, and we followed the team together. As a child, she sat by the radio with a scorebook, and scored every game. Now in her 80s, she still has stacks of old scorebooks.) Yes, 1967 was a memorable year!
    Lloyd: Great story! I'm glad i posted that photo.

    Cheers, Matt.

    I am woefully behind this week. Lovely stuff all!
    I am off on a much needed vacation so I should hopefully come back with something in 2 weeks.

    Some of my faves...

    Trying to get a shot of my granddaughter putting together the wooden train. She caught me taking this first shot, and asked to see the picture. After that, she started posing, and moving around the room suggesting shots. She'd comment on each, and then try something new. Only two and a budding model/critic.

    All with the M8, CV 15/4.5 combo:

    This is the shot she busted me on.


    She looked at this one and said, "That's silly Papa. That's a bad shot!"


    Lucky for me, she liked this one:


    Before this one she said, "Take a picture of me with the flower." Then reached back over her head and grabbed it.
    Fortunately for me, the shot received her approval.
