Lovely! For me, the lack of super-sharp focus gives them a dreamy quality.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Saw the sun behind the clouds this morning, looked way more awesome in person than in this picture but thought I would post picture anyway.


We went to the Museum of Science and Technology (The MOST) here in Syracuse this weekend, what a wonderful place! It was fun and engaging, with a lot of hands on for the kids. We saw the awesome IMAX Hubble movie on their domed IMAX screen.

The awesome Train setup they had,




They had a guy there making things out of toothpicks,

awesome pics!!!

Selina, I do a lot of plant photography, too. With such transparent or translucent blossoms like peaches or cherries it's also nice to try a shot against the light. You get the most amazing light/shadow patterns
These are mirabel-plum blossoms (not quite sharp as the camera at my office suffered a scratch across the lense recently but I think you get the general idea)

Awesome. I love your pictures . It's raining today, so I can't try that, but I will as soon as the weather gets better.

Impressive would be an understatement to describe those ships.

It is, he was working on Fenway Park while sitting there. Here is his recently completed Yankee Stadium.

While investigating my broken water heater, I discovered this hanging on the wall of my basement.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

oooh, that's an awesome one!
Goes to show that minimalism and playing with light can be art. Quite contrary, in my opinion, to some "official" art like Boys' grease-smeared bathtub or similar nonsense.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Timby, I have to agree about the "abstract" nature of your last two shots. Very cool!

A few from this weekend:

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Finally getting to see some green, but still about a foot of snow on the ground. Suppose to be in 50's next week, so maybe we'll see some more of the lawn sometime soon.

The community band I play with is preparing for a concert at a local arts festival. One of the pieces is a John Williams movie medley.
