I don't know if your Nikon can do as well, but, if this hull is still avalable, you might reshoot it, so as to be able to print this Sub-Minox find larger some day.

Bruce, as with pretty much everything shot with the cellphone, it's followed by regret.

The boat's been painted below the waterline and taken back out to sea because the kid who was trying to restore it ran out of marina money; I think he now hopes it'll sink before summer. Such the dreams of youth: optimism without a touch of research.

Sadness comes in so many disguises...

My usual stroll down by the boats was impossible today - well, without leaving my mind at home - but I thought I'd better shoot something anyway, just to make sure I don't forget what I'm supposed to do with that little thing in my windcheater pocket. I was thinking about a mug of coffee, one of those delightful almond-chip biscuits the local pasteleria provides, all accompanied by two squares of chocolate (dark, unsweetened). I'm finishing it off the noo, but the crumbs like to get into the keyboard, which doesn't help much.

Oh well, the wood fire's on this afternoon; psychologically cheering. Nothing's on tv tonight, though...

Delightfully pensive shot there Rob,

We've all had drizzly afternoons stuck in the car like that.

Surely coffee and chocky are over invigorating for a calm peaceful stroll.

Thanks, pop; the windscreen might have shown the rain a bit better than it has, but these 'phones self-focus (or should that be autofocus?) and I suppose it locked onto something far away.

Walter - pensive is really a bad habit from which I seem to find difficulty moving on from (?) but the squally weather's just too much for actual walking. I have a brolly with me, but mostly it's in imitation of city gent: furled. The wind would ruin it more than time has already!

Got home to find that the water pump for the block has given up the ghost. Now would be a good time to have an auxiliary outdoor loo with a bucket. So, tomorrow morning it's a call to the Administrator to send his plumber... there's a saying that it never rains but it pours. These 'incidents' drive me to distraction and I wonder why there are no nice, gravity-fed header tanks in these buildings like in Britain, but best not pursue that line of thought right now.

Great portrait, Rajan! He really looks the way the sole inhabitant of a ghost town should look. However, the follow-up portrait in color (on your blog) lets him look too much like a businessman, IMHO. Nice series.

Well, it's a twist on rich white tourists going to India and shooting local colour...

Fair seems fair.

Yes it is.
The fire is 61000 hectare and going to burn for at least 2-3 more weeks.

Reminds me of this, which I took abut four years ago with my then brand-new G10. It's finished now, although I think largely unlet.

Wrong thread! Doesn't that depict what the CIA used to call "termination with extreme prejudice"?

Looks like everybody got at least a shot like this, you could probably make an entire new topic for it  ;D
I know I have several but I'm not so sure I can find them beyond this one which I took in Boston and I previously posted it some time ago
