Reagan,

Dismal ? That last shot looking down the path towards the water is what i would call a sunny day in Oregon In your case, you can actually see the color blue. No auto WB needed here in oregon. Everything is gray even the colors

Regardless, the 28 is da bomb !

Philippe, very strong and touching pictures from the former battlefield. I've read that about 50.000.000 grenades and mines exploded there - completely impossible to imagine the horror in the trenches on both sides.

+1! The guard with his closed eyes is pretty cool too. Personal fav is the escaping blackbird.

As usual, I entertained myself while fueling the Honda with my camera.

For the last couple mornings I've been treated to a clear sky. In the southeast, the crazy bright "star" is the planet Venus. Below it and to the left is its friend the planet Mercury.

Although not hard to see many have never seen Mercury. If you are up a bit b/4 sunrise look for it. It's a nice conversation starter

Reagan it's somewhere around 37 here do you have to rub it in?

BTW your bridge photo was delightful. And agree with you, page after page the photos here leave one in awe.

Reagan it's Great to see you out and about taking photos and I love the footprints! I have been lazy this week but as you know in Florida anything below 70 degrees is considered CHILLY

Reagan, what a rare treat. Just imagine if you tried to rent the beach all for yourself...the cost, and the likely people that would be there. The first one has a sun-shine threatening bright spot in the sky...the kind that send out rays of light. Thanks for sharing.

Poor Tina. Her wedding is a couple weeks away. Lots of stress and worry.

Years and years ago Margaret made me a worry doll. The deal is, I was supposed to put the worry doll under my pillow and sleep on it. Upon waking, my worries were gone. I've kept the doll around.

I loaned it to Tina

Yes no rubbing in the warm weather. Xmas lights are nice but a warm beach is a whole lot more inviting right about now. The beach shots were wonderful.

A few days ago we had a freezing rain. In the morning when the sun came out - the whole world made a crackling sound...and these little diamonds of water were sparkling. In a few hours they all had evaporated.

A rare moment tonight. Rocky and Higgs played together for over 10 minutes. Higgs is over twice as fast as Rocky. I tried to photograph them. I prefocused, put the camera on continuous shooting, threw the toy and held down the shutter.

A keeper rate of about 1 of 50
