probably a size and naming mis-match.

I might just stick with putting a link to my PBase site and mentioning what's there.
. It took me several weeks to get all the vacation pics sorted out in to reasonable subject matter categories. So for generic pics I think I'll just post a link. (there are about 230 pics of Victorians, 2 dozen old and modern covered bridge shots, etc etc. go for it. I don't post anything on my posting sites that I worry about anybody else seeing. Well maybe that pic where I called my wife "Yoda", but she gets mad at me anyway.)

For the the this is how I am doing it, or how I did it pics, that are really specific to this site I'll do the re-naming and re-sizing thing.


Don't push me bureaucrat, I've got a bit of hangover

I took this photo of upper Manhattan last weekend. The city is about 25 miles away.

That's a good photo Dave. There's plenty of trees to see over that 25 miles.
Can you imagine 100-150 years ago when that was all farmland and cleared.
Now it's all homes.

Actually, Dave, you're lookin' at a lot more than homes-- parts of Newark and Jersey City are in direct line of the camera.

The tall white structure just below and to the right of the Empire State Building is, I believe, the tower at Newark Liberty Airport.

The Obligatory Tourist Photo from our recent trip:


dave

p.s. the towers -do- lean outwards so that if there's an earthquake they'll fall away from the main structure. It's almost impossible to see in person, but you can see it here.

Nothing real special, but I ran across this woods fire on my way home, at night, a couple weeks ago. It was a bit less than a mile from the house.

Pete,

Amazingly, the Town's VFD sent their rural pumper, tanker and "brush" truck, which is an old military deuce and a half converted for off road woods/brush fires.
Once on scene, they had it knocked down pretty good in about 10 minutes.
Sad part is, at least 14 vehicles had passed us going the other way over a 5 mile stretch, before we came upon it. When I called dispatch, no one had called it in!!
Much longer and I'm sure it could have turned into a bear to fight.

Mike,

You folks got Lucky (capital "L") that night. From my uneducated position here in a comfortable hotel room, it looks like it was close to becoming a "Crown Fire," where the red stuff gets into the treetops and runs like the wind. Those are just plain ugly to see and to stop. Been there....

Be thankful that you rolled up on it at the "right" time!

Here's one I took down in SW Missouri... now this is benchwork!!! I was amazed at seeing this lost skill as I watched this man work on his new log structure.

This week an artist acquaintance of mine asked me to take some photos of a model of the old time sailing ship "Marco Polo" that he could use to do a painting of the ship. Don't know the scale, but the model is about 18" long, and was made by someone else. I took a bunch in varying positions and lighting conditions, and spruced this one up with a sea scene I found one of his ships painting books.

The Marco Polo was built locally, and at one time it was the fastest ship in the world. I think its 100th anniverary is coming up soon, hence the painting is being made.

Something different from taking photos of trains!

Duplicate post. Hit reply before attaching pictures!






Severe Storm Chasing and trains are one. While out chasing you see trains, and lots of them!
