1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nice shot of Ichiro there, Slim. I love action shots!
    Also nice to see the fire department honor guard in action.

    Those two pictures were taken in the 1st and 3rd inning IIRC. (actually if you look at it, the second of the two shots was the first inning, look at the batters box) Ichiro's swing, while extremely unorthodox is VERY consistant. It might as well be the same swing.

    That year we had this unusual glace coming with the wind... Global Warming was announcing what it can do tous in the future... scary

    Why we were in Geneva, Switzerland in January of 2003 is another story. The wind off Lake Geneva really blows. Here is proof of what happens when someone doesn't heed the warnings about parking near the lakeshore. I used the Nikon N65 for this.

    question for you guys - a long long time ago, I had a simple canon 35 mm manual camera - you needed to focus, you needed to set the shutter speed and aperature. I learned how to take pictures on that. I cna't, however, remember what the camera was called.

    I'd like to get something like that again - specifically for taking a few still life pictures and pictures of some scenery, sort of artsy type pictures. I want to spend as little as possible, and, considering that I am talking about obsolete technolgoy, I see no reason why I shouldn't be able to.

    any suggestions?

    You can buy digital all-in-one cameras (not SLR) that will allow you to play with all of those settings. To a degree, I think. Mine (a Kodak something or other) has a Manual setting--but I think there are limits on some of the settings. So if the aperture is too far open it won't let you minimize the shutter speed too. I think. But I'm not camera expert.

    And mine wasn' t too expensive (less than $300 I know). Just fyi.

    Mostly from my trips in the Middle East. I wish I knew more about digital editing - I feel like these could look a lot better if I knew more than plug and upload!

    That sounds like a simple manual SLR. Something, perhaps, like this: [​IMG] Manual SLRs--aside from the vintage higher-end ones--are very cheap now due to the fact that they were made in abundance, and also decreased demand. Sometimes a complete set can be had for $200. Otherwise, it could be a (Canon) rangefinder, which are a bit more costly. The rangefinders usually don't have a built-in meter. [​IMG]

    thanks - I think that the AE-1 is what I was thinking about.

    thanks - I have a digital camera, I should have clarified Iwant to get a film camera now, and I was hoping to get something real cheap on ebay.

    I want to take a series of pictures of local fruit and vegitable markets for my dinning room, and blow them up to about 18 X 24 inches. so I wanted to do this with real film as opposed to digital. and, since the whole reason behind this is for a set f maybe 10 pictures, I want this to be cheap.

    I just have an olympus e-300. I think I got the kit for $600 over a year ago, so it should be almost half now. Both kit lens are very nice.

    Went up to Newcastle Golf Course and took this pic today after work. Came home and tweaked it a bit. It is desktop sized if you so desire... Enjoy!

    [​IMG]

    And a few more smaller ones:

    These two are from the 18 hole mini-golf course. Thats right, 18 holes of mini-golf at the most prestigious golf club in the northwest.

    Right after these, I was kindly "reminded" that the course is for "members only". I wish I'd had a Members Only jacket on. I would have pointed to it and told them that I was a member.

    JetBlast, I really really love your photos from the airport. I've always had a major interest in aviation much like your self and love seeing anything relating to it. We used to go to the airport over here (PDX), and along the river that the airport sits next to there's a long stretch of road that runs along side the runways and we'd go and pull off where they allowed people and sit for hours and just watch planes take off and land. Keep posting 'em man, I love it!

    Ah, okay. We have the same thing in our kitchen, btw. My wife is a huge fan of cooking and food in general (I hate the word "foodie") and always takes photos of markets, market signs, food, etc.

    Good luck, and don't forget to post them!
