    Calling All OptiBoard Photographers (Summer/Fall 2005)

    Here's one of our feathered friends I found playing in our backyard pool today.

    In the second pic, Steve, would that be the backstroke or the breaststroke? :)

    Finally got out to play with my new 35mm camera (JRS are you proud of me). I now know what the filters are that you talked about. He sold me one to keep my lens from being scratched.

    This is the bluff at the Citie of Henricus overlooking the convergence of the Chickahominy and James Rivers. http://www.henricus.org/frame.html

    I also included a shot of the path that leads down the bluff and along the river. It was a great walk.

    Some more pics from my trip to Williamsburg and one of my friend's son, Trevor, on his 3rd birthday. I cannot ever recall being this surprised at a gift, can you?

    Here are some recent pics taken on my trip to the Outer Banks of NC. These were all taken in Manteo on Roanoke Island. It is a neat little area and I encourage you to check it out when you are in the Outer Banks.

    Vermont on Columbus Day weekend '05

    Just got back from the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont. Mikey and I may be the only 2 optiboarders able to name the gap in two of the photos. Picture of Mrs Harry in front of our B&B in Danville and me atop Burke Mtn, in a cloud as usual.

    Last Monday, October 3rd. I cycled up to Mt. Ashland and took these pictures. There was the first of the seasons snow above 6500 feet. when I got home I started overhauling the old X-country ski's. Won't be long now. The far mountain in the first photo is Mt. Shasta.

    Thumbs up Home

    If I was home, I would post some of mine of Hawaii, VA, and TX. But the files went in to storage until I came back. I do have them posted online. Until then, I will enjoy these.

    Its been awhile since I've posted some photos. Once school is over for me (ends next week) I am looking forward to (FINALLY) explore Vancouver and taking more shots of course..

    MLM, one day when time allows, we have to get together and do this.. :D

    Here are some random shots of vancouver (dunderave, hope I am spelling it right), shadow- (from furry creek golf course), and a good friend of ours little girl who just turned 1 on the day of these shots.

    Hope everyone is having a great summer!:cheers:

    Summer vacation

    Each year we go to a beautiful little lake in the Merrit area of BC, an hour and a half away from home, for our anniversary. These pics are all I have of this year's vacation; my camera's memory card decided on the second to last day of our stay to require reformatting, and thus I lost all my pictures. Fortunately, a good friend came up the last two days and lent me his professional digital: a Canon EOS Digital Rebel my little canon powershot will never be good enough again!

    When the rainbow trout action is slow,we have a sport of catching suckerfish to feed them to the resident eagles-- they had two offspring this year and they are a very hungry family! The adults now come within ten feet of the boat, and will follow us around the lake in anticipation of their next meal. For the first time ever we were somewhat bothered by a bear; the evidence of their presence is throught the forest but rarely have we ever seen one. This little guy was just a bit too comfortable with our presence.

    More Jerusalem shots

    These were taken in Talpiot-
    a modern neighbourhood of Jerusalem,
    :idea: in case anyone is interested-
    there are few flats for sales in the building on the first shot.

    Redhot Jumper flats

    :hammer: For that nosy Grandmother,
    the flats in a modern building on that photo
    are 2-3 bedroom apartments
    with 2 balconies and parking spaces,
    and they run between $$300K-$$$500+K...
    The penthouses are a "few " schmekkels more.
    If I had the cash required -I'd get the penthouse facing the Old City and the Valley near Abu Tur...
    I posted some of those buildings in pryor "Jerusalem" posts.
    Or i'd take that villa in Talbieh with a roof-garden and sukkah.
    There are more great photos to come.
    Happy And Healthy NEW YEAR To ALL !!!:)
