I don't know Wrei, there aren't that many members of congress or the administration who have anything to cut off, well Hillary and Nancy Pelosi, but where do you go after that?


Feinstein, Ried, Brady, and Shiela Jackson Lee from Houston, I could probably think up a few others but the vision of them going to get that surgery has me cracking up

They all ought to be put on a barge and sent down river, but that would be wasting a perfectly good barge...

Yup! Would any of us have our jobs if we we're performing at a 9% approval rating? BTW, more shoes continue to drop, not that it makes any difference to the folks in favor of what's taking place. The uninsurable healthcare promise, from the bill we had to pass to see what's in it, was discontinued last week, becase "it wasn't financially viable". Funny how that didn't get much press coverage. If a conservative had foisted half this stuff on us, there would be blood in the streets. Truly amazing to witness, and all this from a guy who pledged to have the deficit halved by this point.

One thing I'll agree with the president on, he really didn't have any idea what he was inheriting. Being a communiy organizer and a present voter in Illinois wouldn't really prepare a person for the most powerful and complicated position in the world. It appears that the time is right for ineptitude. I feel like I' on a five year Carnival cruise.

Magic levitating Bulls .......makes you wonder what it takes to lift 1/2ton+ vertically like that ....although it was the landing I feard...he just missed the rider on the ground........YIKES !!
I also got one of the real rodeo heroes. the Clowns being very friendly with a very pissed off bull......they got so close that it nearly looks like the Clown was cuddling the bull.......

Standing on the outside lookin in.....Its not just US politics thats in a mess....

We have professional idiots down here too, Labour Government got in...out of all the Labour ministers in Governmemnt 97% were Union officials....never held a proper job or run a business....Scary thought....
Our encumbent Prime Minister is woman who has no idea,....& in a power struggle she managed to oust the prime minister who was voted in,,,..
However its all about to end ,.....they have decided to call an election,.....in November,.....the rats are now leaving the sinking ship....safe with thier lifetime Pensions for 10 years of incompetant service...
It just goes on & on....

The problem we have here is same as US, too many self interests & too much pocket lining, ...too much incometance...rant over,

On the Chocolate bar front , I'm shooting a one off life saving bar to Jim,....interesting to see how US customs treats a chocolate bar......lol

Rare sight in Mesa, AZ. The Superstitions covered in snow. It was a very odd day...snow, lighting, hail, rain, biggest double rainbow I've ever seen, entire sky was bright orange at sunset.
And I decided to do a panorama that will print approx 22 feet wide!
Anyone need art for a large conference room?

Hi Rob,

That pano is beautiful! I saw that you guys were getting every conceivable form of wx, and figured there would be some dramatic opportunities for all the talent that resides in the great state of AZ.

On a technical note, did you shoot the segments in portrait mode, or landscape. Any special head? I've been looking into pano gear for a couple of assignments, but I'm more confused about the technique/tools than I was when I started.

Again, remarkable composition and technical work. That would be absolutely breathtaking in 22' form!

A couple of days ago it was bumping 80 here. This morning I finished up a shoot in sleet and 39 degrees. Never boring.

Hi David,

Isn't it amazing that common sense can't find it's way into any facet of the political spectrum? Can you buy a jumbo sized Snickers in NY? Can you buy a big steak? Can you buy a carton of Marlboros? Why would you draw a line with a soft drink? And, just where in the heck do you stop drawing lines once you have insinuated yourself into the citizenry's private lives? Maybe we should have a federal "cash for coke" program where we use tax dollars to buy soft drinks back from the public for multiples of it's street value? Now that sounds like something our braniacs in DC would go for.

Be careful Jim, because we don't want to give DC any more ideas. I think it is time to vote them out, but what goes back in may be even worse.

If Sequestration does occur, Alabama's Governor Bentley is predicting that 40,000 people would lose their jobs, and that is just short term, because we all now that these cuts will affect other businesses in the long run.

For what it is worth, I have never believed we were in a recession. I honestly think that we are in the midst of a new Great Depression. If not, than we are very close to it.

Glenn,

Thats the real deal mate. The blue on the windows is due to it being shot around dawn.

It's a stunning shot, Mark. How did you talk your way into the cockpit with a camera for takeoff?

Beautiful pano, Rob. I'd also like to hear how the shot was composed and what gear you used.

No talking / string pulling required.
At the time that photo was taken, I was one of the few company employees who was flight deck authorised for travel due to the nature of what was my then job.

Gorgeous pano Rob!

I shot this last evening while waiting for the sunset to develop. I had to beg for a bit of forgiveness from my wife for being home late for dinner.
