You see? You see? I was anticipating 16 months, and here it is in only nine!

I was just up in the Skagit Valley two weeks ago, the weather was glorious, the daffodil fields were a blaze of yellow and white, and all I had was a folder with HP5+... Looks now like we're finally getting our winter storm. Oh, the irony... :rolleyes:

Yay! And for as long as the kids and I stood in line at the post office yesterday, the Kenmore camera exchange would have been the better idea. Ah well, next round.

Glad it reached you!

It's just as well that we didn't. They're getting to know me by name at the used gear counter. :rolleyes:

Will you be holding the camera for six months to get this year's fall colors?

I was thinking of early summer sunset over the city skyline. Gorgeous shot. No, I have something far more bleak and depressing in mind.

Hah! Very good. But no. I wish we could get terrorists to believe the EMP and that Target store were important military installations.

Camera 7? That one hurts just thinking about it.
How about a Bolex 16mm. Everyone gets to do a 1 minute skit.

Whoa when I read that first I read "1 minute skirt".. and that would have been very interesting!

Tim - the tired in Aachen (again??) bit I can understand.. the hurting bit however.. what did you do to yourself??

(I don't want to sound foolish)
But as i understand - this game it's about senting a camera to several APUG users around the world, each of them photograph with the same caemra for particular time, and in the end the camera turns back to its owner?

It's sound interesting!

Stevco,

Just replace "for particular time" with "for six months to a year or so" and you've got it exactly! ;)

Stick around. When this round finishes some time in the next few years, we're going to start all over again.

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH !!!!!

Is there any reason why we have to wait for one round to finish before the next one begins? (let the flogging commence...)

I need to clean my glasses. That k didn't look like a k. And I'm thinking, that's just not enough time...

of course not Rachelle. Just takes energy. In the mean time, the camera for round seven (Holga) was put in a packing box somewhere and will probably be replaced.

My last two sure shots were destroyed in an unfortunate personal incident and I have not replaced them yet.

I suspect we are getting close to posting the "Under New Management" sign.

For the time being, just keep that camera moving.
