So anyway she gets real close to see through the viewfinder. http://www.flickr.com/photos/alankle...57625797001770 Nothing like this use to happen when I was single and younger.

    So my friend Mel, who's an artist and who shot the picture, decides to paint a likeness of the photo adding a goose posing for the shot for some humor. http://www.flickr.com/photos/alankle...57625797001770

    You can't make this stuff up!

    Hey Alan, nothing like that happens to me when I'm out with my film gear, I guess English chicks are rather less forthcoming than American ones!......nevertheless I'll give it a try with my Olympus 35RC and see what happens.

    I always got noticed.

    If you wanna get noticed, wear a 4x5 Speed Graphic with flash and power pack.

    Depends on the neigborhood. In this area, people tend to treat you will a lot of respect if you've got a big wooden tripod with an 8x10 atop it, but are suspicious when you're aiming an SLR, as if you're invading their privacy. Once a ways inland, the equivalent of our "Midwest" in California, if you set up a view camera they think you're either a terrorist or a spy for the UN and Al Gore, plotting how to confiscate their
    goats and chickens. ... With kids, around here they politely wait until you're done with the shot then approach and ask to look behind the
    darkcloth, and generally respond with "cooool!". With an SLR, they just think you're an uncool fuddy-duddy. But inland, kids throw rocks at you,
    and teenager and rednecks spin tires at you, either way, because they don't recognize either as a camera.

    If you had been in Vancouver, it would have been a hood on a goretex jacket.

    19 years ago on holiday in Vancouver over the New Year period, for me it was both goretex jacket with hood and toque, (for warmth)
    Got quite cool while riding BC ferries all over the place. Stayed a couple of nights with friends on Saturna Island and the wind was howling!!

    Tomorrow I'm off to the UK. Crazy niece of mine has booked her wedding for early December. Looks like it's gonna be quite chilly
    so I'm taking my 19 yo Canadian toque with me. It still looks like new as it has never been worn in Oz. I still have the goretex shell jacket
    made by, I think, the Mountain Equipment Company. A really well made garment.
