Duck: All three nice this time. If I were just a little more into
airplanes, I could see hanging the FW190 on a wall. The sofa is
missing the babe, though.
Bob Flint: Forager - nice shot. Maybe could use a touch more contrast
to add some "pop". Spider - nice focus on the web. Pretty good shot
Peter Newman - Bird - hey, I actually LIKE the bird. Maybe my eyes
are going, too. I'm trying very hard to not even think about the
Gazelle picture, thank you very much.
Bowser - The gater shot is a keeper.
Bob Coe - It is really hard to make interesting seashore shots,
because we have all been spoiled from seeing pictures produced with TS-
E lenses and Lee big stopper filters at sunset or sunrise, etc.etc.
K Petre - I like the Glasgow picture the best of the three. A bit of
a hohum showing from you this time, though. But maybe it is just the
Martha's bra picture: Hey, what's not to like? Actually, a very
pleasant picture to look at; good work.
Cooper staircase - Best of the three. Technically OK, and fit the
mandate, but not compelling to me.. Not sure why. Maybe the angle
just doesn't work for my tastes. (Edit) You know, I hate to steal
Charles' thunder, but maybe if you cropped the bottom off to just
above the lower joint in the wood, it might generate a better geometry
to look at. (Edit again) Too many Coopers, I thought one of Cleary's
belonged to you. The Gater Grill is also an interesting and colorful
Cleary glow - Alright! Someone who likes abstracts. Keep it up!
DaveC - Surfer - Nice action shot.
DanP- slug. Would you really have taken that except for the mandate?
You need to sit in the corner with Newman.
Me - flipper. Lucky grab with the 5D2, which is not known for action
Sid- I like all three of those, especially the dog and berries. Not
sure how they fit the mandate though. You should have given captions,
I think. Was that a frigging German Shepard?
And where is Mitch, anyway????

Yeah, I actually figured that out. It was just a short-hand way of
saying that. Like I said, it's a clever picture.
Thanks. Cool, I grew up with that band...even saw them at Allentown PA
Fairgrounds and again at Woodstock.
The photo was taken a decade ago with a Kodak DC-260 (I think) and run thru
ArcSoft Photo Studio's solarization filter and cleaned up with a cloning

they are Spaniel, Gull Rock and Fruit, and you are right I should have
captioned them and I should have included the exif. next time.

I will have to play some more.

I was really just walking along and saw this tiger holding the
silverware. His intent was clear. I was actually looking for the grill.
How many times have you seen a tiger with good table manners? It was a
first for me and I decided to share the experience.

I never got to see them play, but they were one of my favorites. One
summer, I lived down the beach from Grace and Paul in Bolinas, but
never saw them.
