    Well, thank you, Sly.
    You just made me laugh and that is a good thing.
    Thanks (needed that)

    Bert, those are gorgeous! The first and third are simply wonderful... I love the colors. Also I like that the rainbow sunflare isn't too exaggerated in the third one... just enough to give a nice rainbow glow to it. Really lovely.

    I'm with you on pinhole... somehow it is very liberating and freeing to envision a photo with a pinhole camera... I think because it is more like play and less like exacting super-critical photography. Luck and chance and discovery are a bigger part, so it is like opening a present to find out what wonderful things the camera has seen! I think of it almost as a separate hobby from traditional photography.

    Looking forward to seeing it Stone! I went to an air museum a week ago, but that roll is still in my camera, and besides we already got excellent airplane photos in this MSA, so I printed the the one shot I made for MSA from the previous roll.

    This has been fun, and even my wife and daughter got involved ... we'll be driving along and they'll point at something and shout out: "transport!". My daughter is "mad" that I didn't photograph a covered wagon we found.... I'm already looking forward to finding out what the next MSA theme will be.

    Well... unfortunately either my developing technique isn't as good, or my ability to expose properly etc, but D3200 in 35mm just isn't as good as P3200 in 35mm, I love D3200 in 120, but I got some D3200 for christmas and was trying it out, it just seems extremely more grainy than P3200.

    Without further ado, I was looking out my window (and I'm not a birder so this is just a guess) but this ... HAWK? was randomly in my back yard standing on either a small bird or mouse, and making a strange 'wrreeek' noise, which is why I went to the window in the first place. I went to grab my camera, threw on my 70-200 and set the shutter to about 1/600th and then adjusted the exposure based on the light outside, got a few feet out the door, took one shot, then went to take another and my camera died... agh!! ran back inside to get a fresh battery, hands panicking and fumbly, but got it done, ran back outside then crept slowly down the back porch aiming at the bird, shot one shot, then stepped a bit closer and BAM he took off! I was able to get just a few clear(isn) shots of him as he flew, I'm shocked they all came out in focus but I'm fairly steady handed, still, I was glad it wasn't a total loss, unfortunately I almost always shoot on manual, so I didn't think to set it to AV (aperture priority) mode, so as he went into the darkness of the tree's I could only get his silhouette ...

    The reason I'm submitting this one is that airplane flight is transpiration, so why can't animal flight be?

    PS I'm not going to add this to the gallery, just posting it here, it's still a submission but at gallery size, you can't really see anything and it's just not worth clogging up the system with 4 grainy so-so images LOL (I sell my work well don't I?) haha

    Hi Nedl,
    Thank you. And you're absolutely right about pinhole photography. Nicely put.
    There is also a lot of fun in building your own LF wooden pinhole camera as well.

    Two more last minute additions - both from the same photo shoot as my earlier one.

    The titles are "MKD GAS" and "Transportation on the Farm".

    "MKD GAS" refers to the gasoline sold to farmers for use in farm machinery. It is cheaper, because it doesn't have all the road taxes to it, but it is illegal to use it in vehicles that are driven primarily on public roads. It has colour added to it to "mark" it as being for off-road use.

    The attachments suffer badly from the process of re-sizing for APUG.

    sly will recognize the type of weather - kinda Nanaimo-like.

    Doh! Here I thought I was not going to have to ad d anything else to my short list!

    West Coast weather. I know it well. Went for an early afternoon walk, and took few photographs. With HP5+, the light level demanded f2 @ 1/30th. Under the trees, it was too dark to take anything handheld.

    Wait is that you??!!

    Santa Clause lives on a farm and drives a tractor to deliver his presents?? So is he red dye on his clothing from all the gas he spills trying to refuel while still in the air?

    Nope, that is the owner of the farm.

    As it turns out, he was as effective a model as anyone there that day, including the models that had lots more experience/did paying gigs as well..

    I don't think he spent any time with the makeup artist though .
