Hi Riaan,

Yes, it's only about 20mins away by car (using the by-pass systems to avoid chaotic town traffic) but as with so many things, it gets put to the back of the list... I feel amazed that I still have lists!

Another thing on the list is trying to get official access, but as I am also caught up in the annual shutter-varnishing ritual... for myself, the thing would really come into its own as a location for fashion pix, but as I don't have any of those to do, I suppose I might just shoot stuff and save it as effect files for any model stuff that may come along with the lottery win. I would choose the lottery win first, though.

The heat had started in earnest, but it has been a long, slow winter, not as cold as usual but looong.

All the best to you and the Blonde.

Rob

Ah the varnish, a never ending story :)

Thank you, I have passed on the well wishes to the Blonde, we are hopefully tying the knot sometime this year, by the way. Guess it is about time.

I am glad you are shooting that structure Rob, I also love the way you see the intimate aspects of it. The pics tell a story for me.

Another from a recent trip to Greece. Leica M240, 21mm Super Elmar ASPH.



Very nice, Keith. I like it.

Pointed my phone camera out the window a handful of times during yesterday's plane trips. The first is from near Sacramento, California, while the second is from Salt Lake City, Utah.

I must maybe look for my old thread on Nguni cattle and post some pics there, done a fair bit of them over the years.

Thanks, guys.

The thing is, the longer I remain active in photography the more convinced I become that you are only limited by the circumstances in which you find yourself.

I've mentioned before that I believe that I could wander around here and get a useful picture every time. That's not to turn me into genius, but just that the ambience is generous. I know I crave a return to city life, but at the same time I know it would be one helluva wrench! That said, I think we need some kind of pasture new at different phases in life. The ideal, pour moi, would be a lottery win and a new life in a top apartment in Rome, a city my wife-to-be and I fell in love with back in '57. (This solving some possible mystery?)

I spent lunchtime looking at snaps of Cindy Crawford's daughter and wondering what kind of life the future was going to deal her. All the advantages of native wealth and good looks don't, of themselves, guarantee happiness; check out Stephanie of Monaco if you don't think I have a point.

On the other hand, maybe it was simply that my fish could have been hotter.

Perhaps just as well we can't read the runes.

Another of the many children who demanded our attention in India. With no direction from me, this little chap went through a multitude of poses any of which would have made the grade. Leica M240, 50mm Zeiss C Sonnar.

Mt. Elbrus. Southern Russia, in the Caucasus Mountain Range. The tallest mountain in Europe and the 10th most prominent peak in the world.
Altitude 5642 meters.

An acclimatization stop for today. Ayesha and her group of Saudi female friends are at 4200 meters.


The climb to the summit shall be attempted, in stages, starting at 0300 hrs tomorrow, weather permitting.

Best of them so far - IMO.

You can't beat a good model :-) and an equally good eye does no harm whatsoever.

My friend K runs marathons but has no interest (so far) in mountain climbing. Hope Ayesha summits!
