    Thank you all for the wonderful posts & especially to Steve for the forum ..... what a great idea to share members' interests !

    OK all you old camera buffs, you're going to have to go waaaaay back in years to remember the camera that shot the photo: Pentax K1000 35mm with Vivitar telephoto lens ( then I used a scanner to digitize for the web )...... oldie but goodie .......... this forum inspired me to dust of the bag and give it a try again.

    Each photo posted so far is an outstanding compliment to the talent of optiboard members...... I especially enjoy the array of colors that have been captured & look forward to each new posting.

    have a great day ! !

    From my latest travels...

    Here is a picture of a sunrise (yes folks, I said sunRISE) over Dallas, Texas I took over the weekend. The thing I enjoy the most about digital photography is the ability to slightly tweak the color (which you could do with a developing studio, but...) and the ability to add in effects like script.

    old camera buffs???

    Well, now that I think of it ,yep, I'm old. But I still have my K1000 and it takes wonderful pictures. Just wish I had a scanner.

    Billy, do you happen to remember a company in NY called Spirotone? They used to sell "discount" camera gadgets. I have a bellows setup for a 35mm. Great for close-up shots.

    Bob,
    You can get a floppy with your pics on them for sharing from almost any place that develops pics nowadays. Check it out. It is normally about $3-4 for a floppy and $5-7 for a CD (plus developing).

    I have found though that when I get the CD's (although the resolution is better) you have to reduce the size of the pic to use it on the Optiboard. So, I stick with the floppy disc and have no problems. I recently purchased a photo editing program at Target on clearance for $11.98 and it really comes in handy.

    Cindy,

    Thanks for the tips. I'll head over to Target tomorrow and see if they have it .

    The pictures I have are from Connecticut, some 20 years ago. I've kept them pretty protected so the colors have remained as fresh as ever.

    Here's another one for fans of beautiful sunsets. I took this last October in the Arizona desert between Tucson and Florence and as Marlena and I were returning from a day at Biosphere II.

    Were you visiting the 'sphere? Or returning from a stay? It wouldn't surprise me!

    We were visiting. It's an awesome place. It's now owned and operated by Columbia University and the facility is being used by their research scientists. Unfortunately Columbia is now trying to sell it so it's future is somewhat up in the air.

    Here's a shot of a bull elk in rut. He is bugling, and trying to keep his harem rounded up. I used a 500mm telephoto for this big boy, I did not want to get any closer :0). Shot was taken in Colorado in a mountain valley.

    I'll contribute

    Recent vacation

    This one was at one of those drive-through wild life places. Basically, just a standard snap shot.
