3-5 days max, so at the very latest should be one week from today (29th). Just finished the set now, if I can just keep the pipsqueak (my dog) from digging it up I should be in business. LOL

Stone - Don't know what you're talking about. That horizon edge is very dramatic. But, I know the feeling, I started working outside my comfort zone too and while I was displeased with the pics I did last night, my BF really liked the stuff. I guess it takes time getting used to a new way of working.

Thanks, Sly! Have a great holiday!

Matt, great bike!
VaryaV - yes , it's open to the end of the year. As I don't expect to be spending New Year's Eve making my final choice, you could probably sneak an entry in on the morning of the first.
Stone, I like that you are thinking outside the box.

Thanks, I'm thinking if someone had a really great shot of the ball traveling down the pole on New Year's that would probably be the winner what do you think? Lol :)

... I couldn't see the ground glass worth a darn between it being 1am and 20 degrees where my breath fogged everything ...

A college friend, who did a lot of winter VC work, used an upside-down snorkel, to avoid fogging the GG...

That's a good idea, but it is also another thing to carry around with me, I think I've got it down at this point, I simply just hold my breath in between times, it seems to work just fine. But good idea.

Just file it away, for future reference. The series he was doing required a lot of movements, so holding his breath that long was not an option. I also recall him working at well below zero, and getting into the habit of keeping the snorkel in while walking around. He said the air warmed, traveling up the tube... He was quite a sight, in that get-up.

Haha I can imagine!

Oh man, now when the police stop Stone he's going to have some explaining to do. :D

Hi Chris,
I like this second shot very much. You captured the action nicely. Like you were standing on his wing while maneuvering the plane to the runway for a mission.
Welcome to the MSA!!

Well, if we're going for out of the box, then:

I like it. Those propellers are hard to catch!

Great photos everyone! Sly, I did shoot almost two rolls for this assignment, unfortunately I haven't had any time to develop them, and as I'm off to Bali tomorrow it looks like I'll miss out on this one again. In any event, I think you'll have a tough time choosing a winner. ;)

I just realized that a bridge is indeed a means to convey something from one place to another. So, here's this one. :)

Oh John, that's gorgeous!

Here is my entry, I also posted to the MSA Gallery! This was a total blast. I really enjoyed this project. CHEERS!

I've decided to add this one too. It was very windy and adds a bit of mystery to the shot.

... "Took a Wrong Turn and Ended Up in the Spinach."...


:) I was wondering what the bit about digging a hole in the backyard was all about!! Very creative.

Merry Christmas to everyone here in MSA.

Wow! You all are piling them on in the last few days!
Chris, thanks for the wonderful airplane shots. My husband was particularly taken with the Grumman.
Flying Camera, very clever to add your lovely staircase to the MSA. Wonder how many chamber pots and buckets of coal were hauled up and down those stairs.
Jovo, I've been enjoying the images you've been sharing as you get familiar with your new location. I'm glad you choose one to fit into the MSA. Really like the perspective and placement of your bridge.
VaryaV, kind of dark, but very original take on the topic. I especially like the spinach one. Very tall spinach!
And Barbara Ann. Always great to see your thoughtful enties to the MSA. I can't decide between the shopping cart and the young man on a motorbike as a favorite.

I'm going to try to add a pinhole image and a traditional print for each MSA. We'll see how long I can keep it going... Here's my print for this round.

Wow some fantastic images in this thread. My favorites so far are the Camaro, the bicyclist in motion and the subway photos. (Sorry I can't remember who posted everything)

Here's my entry for this one:
