I love these. I really need to start getting out in the city with my camera.


I'm still sifting through my shots from my trip to DC, but here are a few.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks, SD! You definitely should get some night time shots ... just ... be careful out there!

Your DC shots are great. I love the framing of the middle one, and the last one is just too cute!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Quick question, I've been growing my beard, affectionately known in the family as "the ferret after a junior year highschool incident, since last October. It's had a few trims here and there just to straighten it up, but largely left to grow.



Anyway, I'm starting to question its continued existence. What do you all think, keep or shave?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I really need to start taking some pics of edmonton. It's actually kind of nice looking sometimes.

Also, Data, personally i don't mind a beard. However I've always liked them a bit closer to the actual face/neatly trimmed and whatnot. But that's just me, and I've been known to be a bit weird.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

This past weekend my girlfriend and I spent three days camping out up in Yosemite National Park. She'd planned the trip a few months ago when she finally got a reservation for a campground, and invited me to go when things got serious with us back in the fall. Naturally, I took a few photos.

These pictures are a fair attempt, but they pale in comparison to the actual experience of standing on those cliffs looking over the majestic park. Words simply cannot convey the sense of grandeur and magnificence there is to behold. I can't possibly recommend enough that everyone go visit, if they ever have the chance.



"Perhaps 'because it is there' is not a sufficient reason for climbing the mountain?"




"I am hardly in a position to disagree!"













"Look, I'm trying to make an ascent here! Why don't you go pester Dr. McCoy?"







We made it! Whew!!




Time for a photo...




Chromedome and Half Dome.

I agree - great pictures! It just sucks that Yosemite was anti-chocolate dog.

Some not so high quality pics! Herb garden is coming in nicely though it's time to start thinning.



Pretty flowers at my parents' house (with an extra little someone in the pic).

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Nice pics 005 my Dad worked in Yosemite Valley in 75-77, and it's a place that's special.

Not much water in the river for the time of year, going to be a tough drought season...

Thanks guys! It was a real blast and we've already started planning our next trip there.

As for chocolate dog, she was pretty happy to see us when we picked her up Sunday night:



I'll see if I can wrangle a few more images for this thread later this evening.
