  • A New Post For Shutter Bugs

    At any rate, let me say this: if you like my images, and would like to ask any technical questions, questions about my approach to photography, and so on, just ask. I consider myself an intermediate level amateur -- not serious enough to wait for hours or days for the right light, nor get up too early or go to bed to late for the same, unless I'm on tour. And, I know nothing about Nikon menus, and probably don't remember the Canon ones. But, if you want to discuss various issues in your taking travel photos, I'm really happy to share my enthusiasm and love for this image-making stuff. Doug

    Will do. Wow, Thanks, British. I did not know what the etiquette on these forums were, and did not wish to offend people. As you can see, I'm so enthused with photography -- it's somehow the easiest thing for me to do as I age -- no psychomotor skills -- like those required for golf -- are needed, LOL. And I was just so taken aback that the Canadian linemen asked me to take their pictures. The supervisor emailed me and thanked me for giving a good portrayal of their work in stormy conditions, and is taking it up with his company to post some of the photos on their company website. Similarly, one of our State Troopers asked for access, perhaps to post on a government website. So, it's really kool to keep developing one's skills -- you never know where it will lead, and it is, as Alan Watts has preached, part of the play of the universe. :) More generally, there is so much to learn in photography, when you treat it as a fun thing to do. I suspect it would be much harder to be a professional photographer -- you have to get up early and go to bed late to get the best light. You have to plan your shoot, and spend hours or days trying to get the perfect shot. And, I have friends and relatives that have tried to make a living at photography. It's really difficult. You have to have the energy of youth. LOL. BTW, it's a fantastic thing to look at others' images and be amazed by them. Some of the images of the Royal Wedding, for example, are just orgasmic. LOL. The lighting is perfect, the color is perfect. The composition is perfect. And, oftentimes, the message is perfect.

    Hi All, Count Down for this trip has begun but I have a few questions not able to be answered by Tauck. First, the newest itinerary does not mention Doge Palace and I was wondering if I should book a tour on the free day or if Tauck DOES bring us there. Also, no mention of a gondola ride and again is this SURPRISE or should I book one on my own? Please help .... Thanks, Regina

Sigmund Freud theorized that we have multi-track minds, and I’m pretty sure that one track of my mind is always dedicated to music. If there is no music in the environment, there is still always some melody playing in my head. I know many others share this condition. People talk about earworms, tunes that seem to lodge in your head and keep p...

For me growing up in America, the cultural footprint of Spain was so broad and deep that it almost faded into invisibility. My first history lesson said that Columbus discovered America and claimed it for Spain. I learned to take that assertion with a grain of salt, but it is true that Spain kicked off the wave of exploration and colonization ...
