    Stunner, Lloyd!

    Danny Ainge hitting homers! I was just a child! Well maybe an old child!

    Thanks Steve. Yeah, 1979... you were an adolescent pup by then, I'm thinking. Story was that Red Auerbach followed Danny around waving a checkbook and shouting, "Just tell me how much you want!" Finally won him over, I guess. Truth be told, if the Blue Jays would have played Ainge in centerfield, instead of third base, I suspect he would have stayed in baseball.

    Senior in H.S.! Those were some Great years for Celtic B.B. He was known outside of Boston as a dirty player but we just called him a scrappy hustler!
    I miss those days.

    Nice flowers guys! Reminds me that i took a couple last week when we had that 10-minute period of sunshine...

    Actual size is barely half an inch, natural light, no crop:




    Same beast, different shot, no crop.
    Light was already vanishing, did not see the sun since then

    Matt, nice catch.
    The second one is a super cool "situation piece", yet for some reason i just love the first one. Composition, great tints, variety of textures. A favourite.

    I agree, excellent catch, Matt.
    And also a bit scary. In some way the boy seems too young to be so 'old' (tough).

    Corlan, those rose shots are 'wow' !

    [groan!] You guys are too good! Outrageous flower shots by everyone. (I like the moody bit in Steen's.)

    Did someone say archive? An oldie with the lensbaby.

    TR, Great Color & Comp!

    Great shots Matt. Nicely seen.

    I used to study (well, tried to study) between innings at the Mariner's games at the old Kingdome. (back then we sat out in the $2.00 seats in left field and cheered for what ever team they happened to be playing, the Mariners were so bad back then. I was there the day current Boston Celtics GM, Danny Ainge, hit one of his two career homers... a line drive, which just cleared fence in left. Ironically, my younger brother was at the game in Oakland when he hit his only other home run.) I managed to pass my classes that year, so I guess one can study anywhere, eh?
    Steve/Lloyd; Thanks.

    Lloyd: At least you were probably there before pieces of the ceiling started falling. That'd throw off your concentration. I'm not much of a baseball fan (maybe it's the Mariners?); but, there's plenty of quiet time during the game to study.

    Cheers,

    Lloyd/Steve/Corlan/Steen: Great flower shots on a dismal, rainy, winter day. Thanks for the color. Although, I did notice that our Camelias and Azaleas are starting to bloom!

    Corlan/Steen: Thanks. It was a short-haired Seattle girl (that's a breed). The tattoo makes her look tough. I'm trying to collect photos of tattoos (sort of my weird project).

    In the spirit of the day, here's an old rose photo:

    Beauty Matt.

    Yes, it's been a while. Didn't take note of the ceiling falling, but it could have been. The most interesting things were the strange people in the crowd (I'm sure my fellow grad students and I were counted among those by some). We actually made friends with the Mariner's left fielder. I don't recall his name now, but he was from LeGrande, OR. He tried to get us to cheer for the home team, and even tossed a couple of baseballs up to us. We would cheer for him when he made a catch, and when he was up to bat, but that was our concession's limit. It was sort of a fun game we played that summer. We had a good time.

    What a spectacular place! Nice capture. Nice to see open water at this time of year. I notice a dark line along the treetops in the foreground, and one on the ridge behind it. Is that a mask? I think if it were my shot, I'd try to minimize that. Nice though, and thanks for sharing.

    Tim: Thanks for the comments. I think this one may be an example of not getting the exposure right in the camera! I'm going to look at it again. It's the Khutzeymateen Inlet in May (old photo).

    Steve/Lloyd: Thanks. I like the second one too; but, after seeing Jono's B&W (M9) landscapes it's a little crude.

    Aww, that's a nostalgic beauty for me. I can't see a hollyhock without thinking of my grandmother. She had them planted all along the fence in front of her home.

    Beautifully photographed, Matt. The color is spot on too.

    This ain't art, at least not in the photographic sense. But we were all surprised when my little tractor was able to pick up this 26 foot length of tree. Since it was over the sawmill's limit of 24 feet in length, we had to pick it off the mill and turn it around to get the solid 26 foot 10 x 12 timber we wanted. Yeehaw!

Since it was over the sawmill's limit of 24 feet in length, we had to pick it off the mill and turn it around to get the solid 26 foot 10 x 12 timber we wanted. Yeehaw!
    Impressive work Tim (and good photography as well).

    Tim: Great shots. Not quite a clipper ship mast like its first growth forebearers. But, an awesome piece of wood in a world of glulams and composite beams. Use it for something artistic. Cheers.

    Here's another try at a B&W landscape. Two different PP processes. Thanks for any c & c. Cheers.

    D3; 14-24mm f/2.8 (I think?); +2/3 EV; ISO 1400

    Beautiful image Matt, and there are things I like about each version. I really like the overall sharpness and contrast of the second image best... the richer blacks and crisper details. However, I prefer the sky in the first image. The sky in the second has a bit of an edge or harshness I find a little distracting by comparison. (Truth be told, I probably wouldn't say that if I hadn't seen the two versions together.)

    Lloyd: Thanks for the critique. I see exactly what you mean about the sky. It draws the eye too much. I'll see what I can do. The second shot had more PP in Lightzone. Cheers,

    Not many photos from me lately. Things are still a bit upside down, and my father is still in hospital, so that's where I spend most of my time as well.

    Here's one from Singapore 2 weeks ago (I think).

    D80 with 300mm f/4 @ f/5.0

    The little building you see in the background is my house. It was originally built a few towns away as a timber framed Town Office and Post Office. That building and another (the barn that sometimes appears in these shots) were moved to the property in the 70s and 80s. We're planning an addition to the house and it too will be timber framed. The 26 footers will span the opening to keep the room free of support posts. Cookie (the guy sitting on the tractor) is also planning a small timber frame building so we're cutting to specific plans. Almost all the boards that result from the cutting of the timbers, and there are a lot, will be sold to cover the costs of the operation. In the end, the only investment will be our time.

    p.s. Thanks for the positive comments gents!

    p.p.s. I know this kind of thing is maybe not the focus of a forum, but it's been pretty absorbing and I'm finding the process fascinating. If you get tired of these shots, just let me know!
