    Thank you so much. There are a lot of great photographers out there though. I hang out on a photo related forum and try to learn from some of the best. We even have some very artistic photographers here on TFP.

    Below is my latest effort. It's a panoramic made from 8 different photos.

    This is my pathetic effort, from the Jersey shore.

    That's not pathetic at all. That's beautiful.

    LOVE the photo with the CHP out front of some local diner in a small town. That's a classic.

    I also appreciated the photos of marijuana plants. I have a bag of weed my neighbor gave me for some work I did. It's less than an ounce and it's been hanging around about.........forever by now. I always PLAN to light one up. But then.................maybe I'm just too old for that nonsense.

    It has been a while since I made a concerted effort to make landscape photos. One thing or another has kept me from it, or maybe that's just my excuse of the day. I posted about it on my blog yesterday: Panoramas of Mt Jura & Mt Hough | Jim's 1 Foot in the Grave

    The two panoramas I posted in that article turned out pretty nice, I think. But I revived this old topic so I could share this photo from that session. It's not a pano, but it looks pretty cool anyway.

    Saw a young woman today that I had the urge to ask her to pose for me. She didn't know me and wasn't familiar with my photography (which has been mostly landscapes for years), so I didn't ask her. I was afraid I'd come off as just another dirty old man - she's a waitress who no doubt gets her fair share of come-ons from customers.

    I used to do a lot of beauty shooting back in the 80s. I worked in a place that had a lot of college age part-timers. I assembled a portfolio that I used to assure them I could make nice photos. But that was a very long time ago and most of those photos have not withstood the ravages of neglect and time. And they're just so dated anyway.

    It's not like I want to get away from landscape photography, but once in a while, a beautiful woman stirs something in me (yeah that, 'cause I am still a guy, but I'm talking about creative imagination). So, I looked to see if I had anything that would make a potential model have confidence in my ability. I don't have much. A couple of these were shot back in the early 80s (I converted them from film to digital) and four of them in the early 0ughts and three more recent.

    Quincy’s photographer! Could be a part time gig. Was at a house yesterday that had a lot of photos on the wall. Didn’t get a chance to look at them but saw a few group family photos etc. made me think how life use to be. We have a few pictures in frames but not on wall I try not to look at how young we use to be. I suppose there’s no replacement of a photo how of bringing us back in time.

    Now, back in time is for Dinner,
