Okay then....

Clint doesn't wear much jewelry, but I can think of a bracelet, and a bolo tie. Name the movies he wore them in, and (aside from wedding rings) any others you can think of.

I scanned through Blood Work, True Crime, Million Dollar Baby and Blood Work, and no jeans. Guess I win.

Has this become a trivia game? Do I post another clothing related trivia question?  :coolsmiley:

Yeah, it's been a tough year. Glad to see this one pass, but you never know what's around the corner.

I just got back from visiting friends and family in Philly and was able to see the largest snowfall I'd seen in decades. We had four inches where I was staying, and during a holiday party, no less. It was nice to have such a beautiful surroundings to celebrate the holiday (albeit a bit early).

Happy holidays to everyone!


I think this is your best shot yet. Nice composition. You have an interesting subject (the cabin) and good focus. Nice framing with the snow flocked trees.

My dad gave me a $2 bill when I was a kid and I still have it

Well, there I go skimming through posts again -- I read that and thought it said you got $2 billion from your dad.

Guess that would have been a little better.  ;D

He didn't direct Trouble With The Curve at all. Since part of Tightrope was directed by him rather than all and isn't credited director, I am not counting that.

Ah, I'm rusty on my Eastwood trivia -- I'll edit TWTC out of my post above.  On this board, Tightrope is always considered an Eastwood directed film. You don't need to put it on your list, but the rest of us do.

Guess this means Clint needs to direct/act in two more films!  ;)

No, no, the crane in that first shot is great! It provides a pure horizontal to contrast with all the verticals, and helps organize the composition between the natural (trees in left lower foreground, mountain in right middle background) and the man-made (the cityscape proper). It's a great photo.

 :)  Thanks for your unique viewpoint and your artistic and intelligent way of looking at this shot (a great combination). You've helped me like it a little better.

This is the same park (Seacrest Park) as the last photo in the post above. I had these two spots in mind for photographing the skyline and wanted to shoot both spots in day and night lighitng. So after getting Kerry Park in daylight, I came back to Seacrest Park for day shots, and stayed until the city lights came on. As I wrote above, I saw the most beautiful sunset I believe Seattle has ever had.

A couple more shots still to come...

It's just such an awkward number:  24 films. Clint needs to do at least one more so we can get over the 25 hump.  :P

Alright, let's see what my Top 10 will look like:

1.  Unforgiven
2.  The Outlaw Josey Wales
3.  High Plains Drifter
4.  Pale Rider
5.  Gran Torino
6.  A Perfect World
7.  White Hunter, Black Heart
8.  Tightrope
9.  The Gauntlet
10. True Crime

This list is subject to change constantly, as it always does.

To make it a little easier on anyone who wants to do their top 10, here are all the movies Clint both acted in and directed:

Play Misty For Me
High Plains Drifter
The Eiger Sanction
The Outlaw Josey Wales
The Gauntlet
Bronco Billy
Honkytonk Man
Sudden Impact
(Eastwood may not have official credit for directing, but he directed this one)
Pale Rider
Heartbreak Ridge
White Hunter, Black Heart
The Rookie
A Perfect World
The Bridges of Madison County
Absolute Power
True Crime
Space Cowboys
Blood Work
Million Dollar Baby
Gran Torino

On my way back from Alaska, I had a few hours layover in Seattle. I only had a few hours, and there wasn't much time to explore the area, but I knew the spots I wanted to hit, so stuck with those. Seattle was beautiful, and I'm convinced that I was there on the most beautiful day Seattle ever had, and the most beautiful sunset anyone there has ever seen. It was pure luck, and it will go down as one of my favorite photography days ever.

This is from Kerry Park, the best vantage point to view two iconic figures in one shot: one man-made, the other not:

The only thing I could have wished for on this little layover was that the crane ruining my shot wasn't there that day. But, oh well...

This view was from the highway where there was a traffic jam. With traffic completely stopped, I had time to get a few shots of the Great Wheel.

Mt. Rainier from Seacrest Park:

I'll save a few for another post. I'm running low on photos to share.  ;)

Quality probably isn't going to be much different between iPad and iPhone. What I meant to say to Jed Cooper is that since you like photography, and you live in such a beautiful area, get a camera... not one connected to a phone or tablet. Not only will it help you develop your eye just by looking through the lens, but you'll get better results. If you go with a DSLR, you'll be able to get extra creative with your camera. But, even just a point-and-shoot camera will give better results.

... and how about Bronco Billy?

Yes! Missed that one.

You live in a really picturesque area, so you're really lucky to have so much opportunity for great photography. I do like these pics a lot, but I notice that when you zoom in, you see more grain and they're a bit out of focus. Are these taken from the iPad, or your phone?  Maybe you could put a camera on your Christmas list. I'm not criticizing at all, or I hope it doesn't sound that way. But, a camera will really help you develop your eye and you'll get better results too.

I was thinking of this too - maybe after we get past all the holidays, we'll come back and put together a schedule again.

Stretching the definition of Road Movies with these from Eastwood:

Thunderbolt & Lightfoot is a road movie of sorts
Definitely Honkytonk Man
A Perfect World
The Gauntlet
Two Mules for Sister Sarah
The Good The Bad and The Ugly
The Outlaw Josey Wales

(last three are Trail Movies ;))

They're both the fourth installation of Clint's most famous characters:  Harry Callahan, and The Man With No Name (stretching a bit on this one, since Stranger isn't the same person as MWNN, but he is a no named stranger in a western setting -- right up to the last moment on screen anyway).
