More than two weeks of intermittant rain and t-storms in the Northeast region of Pennsylvania.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Nice cat Nasturtium looks really cool
and the Fly looks ok on my monitor Palms?
This one is from Portugal i just got back after a quick visit, it was taken near a place called Algoz, Silves where there is a large gypsy community and you often see them on the road, this group i passed in the car and stopped a kilometre further down the road for the shot, love the little dog tagging along just wish i had used a slightly wider aperture though,

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Gary - who's Ella? She's gorgeous! How's your Dad - or should I ask? Yes, that little gypsy dog looks very happy to trot along side.
palms1 - looks fine on my laptop. Just kinda creepy/scary.
Veralisa - sorry about the rain. Nice cloud captures.

The first one here I shot a week ago Sunday. I just sat the camera on the bench and shot through the slats. The next I took today. Believe it or not the brown is pond scum...makes a great texture IMHO. lol. And the gate is from yesterday. I took this amazing walk that I didn't realize was even there. We live in such a beautiful area. I'll try to get back to that path so I can get some better picture of the horses...

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Nasturtium, your photographs are wonderful. The bench slats pic is most unique...imagin what a simple change of point of view can do. It would really make for an interesting challenge...
Where do you call home? The land looks "horsey" and very scenic.

Gary, Love the gypsies! They certainly are a special breed of people complete with their own culture of survival. I agree, the dog puts it over the top!

Veralisa-I live in rural Holland in a marina community. The pictures were from along a walk on the old Zuiyder Zee dike. I can walk to a fortified city and a bird wetlands is nearby. Yes, it's weird to live somewhere that people go to on vacation.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Thanks Veronica,
i'll try to get to that same area and may be get some more shots of these roma people.
Hi Nasturtium,
Ella is a fiend of mine, the daughter of my spanish translater... yes i still have problems with this language lol..
Thanks for asking about my dad, he had a lot of complications during and after the heart op, but is now getting stronger with physio every day although he still believes himself to be an invalid and is so demanding it's sapping all my energy...
Was it your mother who went into hospital, how is she now?

I just don't seem able to stay away from hospitals these days, a short while ago i developed a lump in my chest, several x-rays and ecographs later and i've been told that a radical mastectomy is necessary, i did locate a healer while i was in the Algarve, skilled in alternative therapy and i'm going ahead with the treatment... scary times indeed, but also time to put faith into an area in the past i had little time for until now,
Gary..

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Gary-I've had good luck with alternative treatments. Educate yourself as much as possible and then go for it.

southbay-I love the bright yellows and blues & the swoopy horizon in the first pic. That lily is eye-popping and the snail is just as cute as a bug.


I'm really proud of this one. It's my first ever SLR macro shot combined with...a brown texture I found. I was looking into this silty pond for little fishies and noticed that it was mottled and had a bright spot in the middle. This silty/pond scum 'texture' appears to mix beautifully with just about everything! Who would have thunk it!?

Thanks. My hat's off to all you folk who maintain this thread posting images of 100kb...I don't know how you all manage to present such quality at these diminutive file sizes. That's really an art in itself!

Nasturtium, here's a site you may like. Your recent posts make me think of this particular photographer. http://www.dianevarner.com/
