{Photography.35.1791}: Steve Lacey {masked} Sat, 08 Sep 2012 16:49:44 CDT (19 lines)

I've uploaded another batch of photos from this summer in the same FB
folder as my Ireland selection. These are scenes from the Isle of Man.
After our second trip there, this little place has become our
favourite place in the British Isles.

By the way, someone asked me to cull a few favourites to post here in
this topic. I'd find that extremely difficult to do. I shot over 1500
pictures in 5 weeks ending August 16. It's taken me this long to
narrow them down to the 150 or so that are in the FB album, and I'm
still not done. There's still a batch from IOM and some from southern
England to wade through. So cutting down even further for the purpose
of this location would be really hard for me!

My apologies for this. If you don't want to zip over to Facebook to
see "what I did on my summer holidays," that's understandable, and I
got no reason to feel slighted. If you do wanna look, that's cool
also. Comments and advice always appreciated.

Ah I recognize some of the Isle of Man photos. I surely do want to look! It's hard to cull, isn't it. I had that problem with my Nova Scotia trip in 2007 - but I kept all the originals on CD so can go back and look at them all, bad and good, just to have a fix!

I think I've finally finished loading pictures into the Facebook
album. There's stuff from Ireland, Isle of Man, England, and even one
of Greenland in there. If you wanna look--

Cross-posted to Nook: The Picture Exchange.

I always back up all my pictures. All of them. They're on memory
sticks, CDRs, and the external hard drive. Many are printed and in
old-fashioned albums, too. My brother's a railroad nut so pictures of
trains and associated phenomena make a good present for him; my dad's
always interested in IOM pix since he was there during WWII. And
pictures in your hand always seem more meaningful than pictures on
your screen. And hard-copy albums are much more likely to be picked up
and examined than files buried somewhere in a computer's memory.

Try this link, Steve, it's to the Tennessee Central Railway Museum.
There may be something of interest.

Then these thoughts hit me.


{Photography.35.1796}: annie {oceanannie} Sun, 09 Sep 2012 20:14:47 CDT (HTML)

I love photo albums, but have had to submit to photos on my hard drive (and flash and some originals on CDs) because I no longer have room for one more photo album. Boo hoo.


{Photography.35.1797}: Steve Lacey {masked} Sun, 09 Sep 2012 23:01:41 CDT (1 line)

Thanks  for the links, Donald. You a raqilroad nut too?


{Photography.35.1798}: Steve Lacey {masked} Sun, 09 Sep 2012 23:02:04 CDT (1 line)

"railroad"  dammit!


{Photography.35.1799}: Donald Dozier {donaldpd} Mon, 10 Sep 2012 10:39:23 CDT (5 lines)

Many say just plain nut, but yes, I like choo choo trains.  I've got
some pictures I made at another museum where we rode behind a steam
engine.  I also have some of an old railroad bridge across the
Tennessee at New Johnsonville, but haven't been able to locate
them.  Yoour post jarred my feeble memory.

My paternal grandad was an engine driver (not an "engineer," he would
tell you) so that's perhaps where my brother got his fascination with
trains. My brother is (or was) president of a group in Winnipeg called
Transport 3000, whose objective is to restore some of the passenger
services--even if only on a tourist basis--that used to ply the rails
of western Canada.

(He's also heavily involved in the Winnipeg Railway Museum. If you go
to <> and click on the "membership"
link, you'll see him in the first photo that appears--the guy in the
center, with the dark stripy sweater and the monk's tonsure instead of
a full head of hair.)

Oh to have train service back in the country - what with Herr H. hand in glove with the oil companies, you'd think he'd be laying rails right and left so's he can buy diesel oil direct from the tar sands.

Telll him to turn around so we can get his countenance.

Nikon S9300.  Any Help?

Thanks, Terry.  One's been calling my name for the past several days
and it appears it will soon change its address to mine.

I remember my first digital camera.  I was a Nikon 990; ancient by
today's standards, but a miracle for me; I could actually "develop" it
using an early version of Paint Shop Pro!  This was the start of
some'um big!


{Photography.35.1807}: Donald Dozier {donaldpd} Sun, 16 Sep 2012 09:42:26 CDT (1 line)

I still know not what I do, nor how, but this booger is interesting.

The only limits on us are those we place on ourselves...

I recently went sailing with a friend, helping him bring his sailboat
home from Port Townsend, WA to Budd Inlet; the lower toe of Puget
Sound in Washington State.

Here is a link to the first state of our voyage from Port Townsend to
Port Gamble using text and photos uploaded to Facebook:

Outstanding travel photos:



{Photography.35.1811}: Sony Cybershot HX-20V {kitty} Tue, 22 Jul 2014 13:33:29 CDT (HTML)

Trying to decide where to put these and this looks like it will do for the purpose.

These are photos I took at the beach that are NOT my family.



{Photography.35.1812}: Coyote {coyote} Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:19:51 CDT (3 lines)

Lots of great shots in that set. For whatever reason, I like the
shadows on the water the best. A creative shot that turned out really


{Photography.35.1813}: Tom Coleman {tomcoleman} Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:58:41 CDT (HTML)

Very nice, Kitty


{Photography.35.1814}: annie {oceanannie} Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:59:22 CDT (HTML)

And smashing skies


{Photography.35.1815}: Sony Cybershot HX-20V {kitty} Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:22:36 CDT (HTML)

Thanks, y'all.

Coyote, that is my nephew and me. He was fishing and the twilight was coming on. I like that one, too.


I like all of them ;-)
