I too enjoy photography. Unfortunately life got so busy that I haven't spent enough time doing it. I'm going to change that.
Heh. It wasn't meant to be lyrical, certainly not eloquent, but it did come from my head. I understand I didn't deliver with the sarcasm and will work on that in the future.Is this lyrical, eloquent paragraph all your own work, sir? There isn't a sarcastic syllable in it.
Thanks, KIS. Nobody has ever accused me of a "personal and deep understanding" of anything! Usually I like to just understand enough to be a smart-ass on most subjects.Photo's are indeed very cool, & shows that a personal & deep understanding lies behind the self ascending status bluster we all wish we could get away with.
Thanks! Almost all CA and AZ in those shots as that's where most of my hikes and backpack trips have ended up. The credit has to go to the earth, though, as all I'm doing is paying attention to the light and shapes that already exist and framing them!Those photos are stunning.... Wow.....
If those photos have any part in making you get back out there, I'm honored! I need to get out there more as well. Balance is the hard part. Got any shots online I can check out?I too enjoy photography. Unfortunately life got so busy that I haven't spent enough time doing it. I'm going to change that.
Right on!+1.But awesome photographs.
Sure. I think it's a shame we don't still feed people to lions when they get out of line. People got all "PC" and now it's apparently some type of issue.More Questions:
Do you like movies about gladiators?
I guess so. I have two kits(3 counting the e-kit), and neither is "top o' the line". Each drum has it's own voices and colors to play with, and I'm no stranger to working with crap gear. For the first half of my learning to drum years the snare was propped on an old box for a fertilizer spray and the cymbals were all cracked and set on random house-hold items that were about the size of a cymbal stand. Parts from lamps, old broken music stands. Only "real" stand was the hats.Was Buddy Rich correct when he said, "a drum is a drum is a drum"?
I know what you mean about the film and real prints. Superior. I can fondly remember hand-rolling my own film 15 years ago in dark-bags not being able to see what I was doing. Fun stuff. What really cinched the change over for me, though, is the preview. Especially in low-light situations, I can get a lot of shots to work that would have been hard to gauge back in the old days; and you didn't know if you got all your settings right until you got back to the dark-room.Love the photos.I'm a bit of a shutter bug myself.I still prefer 35 MM film to digital and my Canon A-1
My father had/has and F-3. I used it most of the way through school and it was a joy to operate. Never gave a single problem. I still have my own old F-M with a mess of nice glass, but all my digital stuff is Pentax.and Nikon F-3 to anything out there.
I think this thread should turn into: "why cats are so much better than dogs".I also love cats,and think the're smarter than most people I've met,and definately more honest.
That's a HUGE pile of ugliness just waiting to happen. Personally I like both, have owned both, and enjoy them each for different reasons. Currently I only have dogs, as my wife is allergic to cats.I think this thread should turn into: "why cats are so much better than dogs".
My digital camera has a real shutter. It works almost exactly like a 35mm, except it's a digital sensor behind the mirror instead of film. In fact, the sensor can actually physically move with magnets to compensate for hand-shakiness. I easily get a few extra hand-held stops out of it.Film cameras vs. digital cameras. Black-and-white vs. colour. Etc.
Personally? I'm a luddite. I like the feel of a real shutter.
No debate attempt intended, but bring it on if that's what y'all want Actually, I like terriers because of their generally shitty/mischievous attitude, wit, & tenacity. Thinking about it, you might make the terrier grade Watso, if you weren't such a pussy wus!
THIS is true. IF DW members were a breed, Watso may well be a terrier.No debate attempt intended, but bring it on if that's what y'all want Actually, I like terriers because of their generally shitty/mischievous attitude, wit, & tenacity.
