    Yeah, Chicago's a great city. It's the sort of thing that's easy to take for granted until you move somewhere else. I feel really lucky to live here.

    Since we were talking about the ducks and this is the picture thread, here are some old pics.

    Duck Dock!

    My sister sitting with my grandfather and I'm in the back with my dad here. The couple across from us were basically like grandparents to us.

    I'm in the ridiculous pigtails here, with my sis and a family friend.

    This is the type that we rode, right in front of Mt. Olympus.

    These flowers are in our front yard. I'm not sure what they are, and I'm hoping someone who is familiar with flowers might know what they are.

    I think they're gorgeous, and I tried to capture the light so their colors could be as accurate as possible. Any ideas?

    EDIT: They're Hyacinth.

    It was a glorious day here in Central NY. The last of the snow melted yesterday and today it was 70°. I was able to finally work on the yard a bit, Ian was helping me. He made a new friend, Squirmy the Wormy.

    Very cool. :)

    You chose to pose with the best phaser ever designed. You have good taste.

    BennieGamali, those are some wonderful shots of the dog. I especially enjoy the Trek dog tag!

    J. Allen, you're right ... you've got some gorgeous flowers there! Nice captures, especially the second one!

    OMG I am so freaking pissed off with flickr. I have been using them for years. Now you can only post photos that are public, but even then they seem to disappear and be unavailable at times.

    My camera is better with graffiti than astronomy.. these were taken in the last hour in front of my house.

    It never really got very red, more like dried blood LOL

    VERY cool! And I'm rather envious because it was raining here last night. I'm glad to see others had a chance to capture the event, though! :techman:

    Great shots there, teacake! My part of the U.S. East coast was covered in clouds and rain so we missed it.

    Excellent photos, teacake. Kingston was rained in, so all we got were TV shots and great pics, like yours.

    I forgot to respond to this. I started using Flickr a few months ago and I haven't had any issues setting photos to private. That's my default, in fact. Is the option not appearing for you anymore? I just updated my photostream a day or two ago and the option was still there for me.

    I got to see the eclipse last night, but I don't know enough about photography to actually take a decent picture of it. Everything I tried just turned out super blurry.
