Sorry I missed last week, I have been up to my eyes in work, both here and back in the UK.
It's starting to settle down again now thank goodness!
Here's my starter for this week.
"Vertigo re-visited" - the stone staircase in Sarzay Chateau.

I hate MY photo being taken.....................
05-23-2011, 01:13 PM
That is wonderful - dizzy making - but wonderful
05-23-2011, 01:46 PM
Rob, love it. I think the sign, danger, says it all.
John, sooooo when are you going to post her picture. lol
05-23-2011, 06:20 PM
Rob - What's up in the bell tower ? or dungeon ?...which is it.
John - But who's picture is she taking ? lol
05-23-2011, 08:22 PM
Nice geometry and tonal range in the stairway, Rob.
John: is the camera lens facing you?
One of my favorite wildflowers. Don't know the name, but they are prolific in spring and pop from the background.
From the country.

Rob. The only thing missing are the toes of the boots. Very dizzing.
John, at least she isn't sticking her tongue out at you. lol
Willard lovely color. Don't know what it is either.
05-23-2011, 08:48 PM
Very pretty flower, Willard. I would like to see the front of the flower.

John (byteme) posted a photo here showing me taking his photo
This is what I was taking - he simply hates having his photo taken
05-25-2011, 12:11 PM
Doesn't surprise me what with that funny-looking eye he has.
05-25-2011, 02:05 PM
Linda, well done...........lol Glad you could join us.
05-25-2011, 02:43 PM
John and Linda - "dueling photographers!" Both great shots, I see Linda got the best spot!
I don't know what flower that is Willard, but the one on the right looks just like the man-eater in "The Little Shop of Horrors" - be careful! ---- FEED ME NOW!
Micheal - this staircase is the main link stairs between all the floors in Sarzay Castle, goes in one spiral from the ground right into the roof space. The photo is from the roof space looking down.

Willard, that is a wild geranium ... or wood geranium.
I have my shot from last week ... just need to find time to get it posted. I will be back! ;)
My niece, the kindergarten graduate. ~~Peg
Rob, a dizzying image. Excellent.
John, I love these kind of shots. My husband used to do them all the time. :D
Willard, the wildflower is Wild Geranium. It's beautiful and nicely captured.
Linda, Hello and welcome. You've captured a surly beast there with his cyclopean eye. :D Is he dangerous? ~~Peg
05-25-2011, 06:40 PM
Willard - Nice geranium or wood geranium.
Linda - That's quite a big one he has.
Peg - She will treasure this photo.

Peg - thats a wonderful happy photo - works well in mono eh!

Welcome, Linda. Love the shot of John. The scenery is wonderful.
Great work this week everyone. I've hurt my back. I hope I'll be able to get my photo tomorrow.

Headed into to Boston this evening to get a few shots. This is from the Cambridge side of the Charles looking into Boston.
05-28-2011, 10:15 PM
Rob- Been said a few times but it is quite dizzying.
John/Linda- Looks like you were having fun. Wish I could get my wife interested!
Willard - Nice comp and color.
Peg- Hope this is the first of many graduations. Like the conversion - really works here.
Michael- Like the fog in the hills. You can feel the dampness.
05-29-2011, 03:22 PM
John, you really need to stop using initials. When I googled TFS, some the results I came up would be banned from the board. lol
Peg she looks like a really bubbly kid. This really needs to be brighter to match her personality. You do did get capture some great expressions.
Michael, see the shoes are still there............lol
Pat This is a lovely capture for night time. The image quality is super.
And it is Sun. again guess I need to go pick something for the week.
Not fruit but eye candy :)

Jim wow your daylilies are budding already..........
Here's mine such as it is. Went to concert the other night. Was intrigued by the safety lights. This was taken towards the end of concert and I moved up high. I also have some from down front looking back up the isle.

Not much this week. It's been a rough week. This is the 1st sunflower of the year. It's one of the smaller varieties that have multiple flowers on a single stalk. They can have lot of different colors, too. It's a little early. They don't usually bloom for a while yet. C&C Welcome

Well, here it is Sunday, the weather is more like March than May, and I've got bronchitis to boot so I haven't been out and about this week. I really need to make a lightbox to take closeups but I did make an image of one of my watches. I bought it in 1972 from an ad in the back of Flying magazine after passing my Private Pilot flight test. I saw one on eekBay the other day that had a bid of €1350/$1936. :eek: Pentax K20D, DA* 50-135 f/2.8, 108mm, 1/180 @ f/8, ISO 400.
Oh, it's a Swiss made Enicar Sherpa Jet Automatic.
05-29-2011, 07:55 PM
I'd be selling that puppy so fast your head would spin. lol Looks like it's had a lot of use.
05-31-2011, 10:07 AM
Monnie you sure rushing summer down there. :-) I like this a lot even it is two months early.
Steve what a great old watch. It such a good feeling when something you had for a while turns out to be valuable. Makes almost an heirloom. :-)
