    Re: Three for Three today

    I'll be in the Fort Worth Area next week babysitting my son while my wife, his fiance and the rest go to a wedding shower in Houston.
    I hope to shoot something whilst I am there

    Bob Fort Worth is a nice town, my folks live there, near TCU.
    They have an interesting skyline and some lovely parks.
    Nice Clubs too

    I do not know what type of photography you do. For Cityscapes one can get nice view from the upper end of Trinity Park.
    The Botanic and Japanese gardens are lovely, however the latter freak if they think you're pro (no tripods also).
    Here is where small sensor cameras shine, GRD looks like plain p&s
    Bars?
    They have a ton of Country ones, Irish pubs (Hare and Hound on Montgomery St. may still be there).
    New Orleans Nights is or was an upscale Gents Clubs, good to Customers and Staff alike.
    Forgive me if my bar knowledge is less than current, when in Cowtown these days I am visiting my folks, who do NOT do bars at all....
    For me I am drawn to the rougher areas, urban decay, 'lived-in' looking.
    Sadly many of these are going away as Urban Renewal takes effect.
    One Bar I worked at is now a Parking lot.
    Sigh, I need to shoot that just to have a keepsake.

    Re: Three for Three today

    I have shot at the Japanese garden and it was a nice venue. I found that if you get in real early they ignored the tripod. Shot my son and his fiance there for their engagement pictures. (somebody had to do it). The small valleys or gullies if you will were good for holding some shade even into late morning.
    I will check out New Orleans Nights and will bring my son since I will be marrying him off at the end of May. It looks like they are still in business, but I will have to check for those ties that I have not worn for the last five years :-)
    thanks

    It is now known as Ricks Cabaret, this change must have been recent.

    Re: Three for Three today

    Today I came across a book of driving shots by Daido Moriyama called "Route 16", very much along the same lines of what you're doing. You may be aware of this, but if not, it looked very interesting.

    http://www.moriyamadaido.com/bibliog...es/route16.htm - though the link doesn't provide much.

    Thanks Tim and Guy
    I keep seeing different things everytime I drive this route since i started this project.
    Tim its interesting to see the thought and design that goes into these common place items isn't it?


    edit; i was worried about the vertical shadow on both shots going up the right side, so i went back to my car and looked through the lcd as well as ol pics- window frames in car in shots to the left and shoulder belt in the shot to the right.
    whew!

    Re: Three for Three today

    Hope it's OK to jump in with another incongruous-objects-on-the-window-ledge photo. After all, it's a rather specialized category.

    I don't mess with the objects by the kitchen window (the wife and kids take care of that). I do like to grab a shot of what's on display when it looks interesting.

    Data ponders the big existential questions.



    Shot with a Casio EX-P505. I was trying out the built-in Sepia filter.

    Next thing he will be wearing all black and drinking coffee till dawn with his fellow Goths at Denny's

    Tim, perhaps he partakes of both?

    I didn't think that when I took the photo, but that's how I read the image later on. The flowers were alive but are now dying. The skull is presumably dead. Data is somewhere in-between in the sense that Androids are neither alive nor dead. It was one of those happy accidents where the image had more meaning than I thought when I grabbed the shot.

    I thought about titling it -- Data ponders the big existential questions: Life, death, and peeling paint.

    Here Data fights the Borg for possession of a deserted asteroid. He has enlisted the help of Mrs. Butterworth, who will pummel the Borg collective with heavy hor dourves.

    (That's the closest I have for a goth Data photo. I figured the Borg could pass for 24th-century industrial goth.)

    My deskhand could use a nice skinny puppy like that; someone to throw the bad candy at. So, is there a right way to rub it, or just wrong ones?

    LOL! I know what you mean. I spent a week in Dallas - more accurately, out near the airport at an infamous hotel we all used to refer to as the "Pink Palace" - on business in the early 1990's. I'd arrived on a weekend, so I decided to go for a walk on my free first day. I should have guessed this wasn't the normal thing to do when I noticed that there were no sidewalks or any other facilities for pedestrians in the area. I walked a couple of miles alongside a busy highway, clambering over shrubs and ditches before eventually finding a large shopping mall in which to pass the time. When I got back to the hotel, the guys at the front desk were fascinated -- "You went WALKING??!! You're lucky someone didn't take a pot-shot at you!". So it was room service and shuttle buses for me the rest of that little jaunt.

    Hehe, this sounds like the normal Swedish driving style.....

    When driving in the US (excepting NYC), I was always struck by the smoothness of the flow, and the "undramatic" behaviour of almost all drivers. Here testosteron rules all the time....

    Guess thatīs why I donīt have any "snapped-while-driving-shots": Here, it would be too dangerous to even try.....

    Lili is no cop nor does she fly copters

    I do fly sailplanes, however
    But they are of limited use in chasing speeders
    of course, they'd never hear me coming

    Hey, I didn't know that you flew sailplanes.
    I have a few hours in Grobs, but most of my hours are single engine land.

    After some consideration, my son and I spent the day at the Forth Worth Zoo followed by some steaks at Del Friscos.
