    Eww LA was my SECOND worst city during my Kodachrome trip, and I lost most of the shots, they were all blank, I don't know what happened but it sure was a disappointment the first worst was Seattle, what miserable place, the only good thing is their coffee and chocolate...

    Now Colorado, wow! Amazing!

    OZ... Ahhh I can't wait! Someday...

    Yyyyyes! Hervey Bay is God's own country — lovely to laze around in a schooner. Tassie is where I did my early landscape training (Cradle Mountain, Fortesque Bay, Tasman Peninsula, Great Western Tiers and lower South Coast). I need to go back there for a project this coming Spring.

    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."

    I love L.A. But have always dreamed about Australia.

    I would go in a minute if I had the means.

    Yes! Seattle is utterly miserable! <hypnosis> You want to stay away ... you want to stay away ... there are no sunny days here ... there are no sunny days here ... we always have drizzle and rain ... we always have drizzle and rain ... </hypnosis>

    And just why do you think hypnosis is required for THAT message? There really ARE no sunny days. Only convergence days.

    Oh crap. Just looked outside. Wow. Is THAT was nearby stars really look like? It's burning my eyes...

    NO! Colorado sucks! Its the armpit of the universe! Don't anybody move here. You'll hate it. You'll get altitude sickness and never be able to get out of bed. Denver is a dusty cow town. Cowboys carrying guns.

    I'm sure everyone agrees Southern California and LA sucks the worst!

    Yet, they keep coming.

    If not worst, a very close contender, and I've felt that way most of the 35 years we've been here.

    Not as many as used to. I can't wait to leave. Another few years to go!
