    Calling All OptiBoard Photographers!

    I recently started organizing my collection of photos and thought it would be interesting to start a thread where OptiBoarders could post some of their favorite photographs. So I'm going to kick this off with a photo I took of my daughter about 20 years ago which won First Place in a photography contest sponsored by the City of Scottsdale Arizona.

    Steve,

    I've got hundreds of photos from my days in Connecticut, mostly from around Farmington and south around Deep River and Essex area. Unfortunately, at this time no scanner or other equipment to send them through. This problem may be corrected within the next month or two.

    Very dramatic. Did you choose B&W for the effect or is that all they had around back then? ;)

    Just, pulling your leg. That is a great picture!

    Here is the view of a space shuttle night launch from my back yard on the west coast of Florida. (I live off the causeway going out to Honeymoon Island, north of Clearwater Beach)
    I think it was in 1999.

    We get some dramatic sunsets in this part of the world, I suppose living on the side of a mountain overlooking the sea and facing west probably helps.

    I seem to take pictures almost every evening when I'm home in time.

    Here's one on the way home some months ago

    I am really proud of this picture. It is the sunrise at Virginia Beach from my hotel room balcony on the oceanfront.

    Those two were in Jasper Park - Canada, late September. We had more days of overcast than sun, hence the lack of "bright" sky. Plan on going back next year too.

    Looking for some other stuff to post. I use to shoot 35mm all the time. Still have 4 - 35mm Canon bodies, 6 lenses, 1- 2 1/2 camera, and a big Crown Graphic (3x5 negative). Pus a complete color darkroom. Got the stuff... just no time any more.

    It took forever for me to inch up on these Pelicans on a dock in Sarasota, FL.

    Here's a shot I took of a Firefighter cooling himself from a leak in the hose while fighting a fire on a hot 110 degree summer day.

    Let me know if this thread starts taking too long to load. perhaps I should set up a separate Photo Gallery forum and have each picture in it's own thread.

    I just love..

    I just love black and white- nothing elses quite catches the moment.You have to focus on the subject rather that the medium. Nice photo's Steve!
