Thanks John, Georg, Ben and Ray! Nikki performs admirably!

And Ben, you were right, I set the camera on a bench with the timer set to 10 seconds and ran into position.


Really?? I was kidding. That is fantastic!!

I've always wanted to go to Monticello - but I suspect it's one of those place I'll never get to - but I'm so pleased to see your pics and know that at least nikki's been there.

Beautiful shot Leighton. I am glad you got yourself into the picture with her. One thing I'm really glad I insisted that he did after we found out about the cancer, was to go get some photos done of the two of us. There weren't any of the two of us together, and I have some of those printed and hanging on the wall now.

Thanks Leighton and Monty, it was time for me to stop sitting at home and to get going on this. I've been saying it since summer, and this morning after I'd gone to have some blood work drawn, I came home, sat down, and finally said get up off your butt and get going. Went in, registered, took the reading, English, and math placement tests, and don't need any remedial classes, placed into Intermediate Algebra, not bad for as many years out of school that I am The program has about a two year waiting list, but if I do well enough on the classes, I can be bumped up the waiting list.

Trey cool, I went back to college at 40 and it was worth it to me. I know I took it more serious and learned more than when I went as a 20-somethiing.

Thank you Leighton, Ronny and Georg.

Monty liked the particle and the bokeh;

Ronny, great horse head isolation;

Leighton, you are confirming once more what a great and sharp lens the "old lady" is.

Wonderful to see you and Barbara in this fine photo. I'm also delighted that you've taken our friend Nikki on an historic tour of Virginia. Lovely set, but this one makes me smile...

I guess this is what farmers do during the winter...

Winnipeg and the Red River is host to the longest skating trail in the world.

I walked along the river for a while yesterday on my way back from the store and caught a couple people (and a pooch) enjoying the mild (-20c with wind) weather.

Dylan, I really like the first image here. Great candid of the skater and very nice background rendering.

Some crazy person went to college this morning and signed up for four heavy duty classes.. Chemistry, Algebra, English, and Psychology... school starts Monday.


You've heard about "old dogs" learning new tricks... it is true...

Congratulations Laura. It is never too late to explore our passions, whether for photography or learning. Well done!

Delicious shot Monty! I haven't been around of late, so I missed the addition of the 50 f/1.2 AI to your kit. Well done!

Your new friend seems to be settling in. That is wonderful.

Great series with Nikki Leighton! I like the first image and the reflecting pool image. The self portrait is not bad either. I visited there once and it is a beautiful place. Even though it is the winter, it does not look to unseasonable in your images.

+1 nice self portrait, and as mentioned in another post, I like the low angle of the shot.

Monty, I like the optometrist shots.

Dylan, I've heard of this skating trail, looks like fun, and an neat alternative transportation mode in the winter. Godd shots too, esp the sharp MF capture on the second shot.

A little late, but Leighton, I've gone back to look at the following shot a bunch of times, great image!

Love it Monty. I bet with 90% accuracy I could pick your images out of a pile just due to the style (which I really like).
