Brendan I keep thinkin' I'm going to see a polar bear in one of those photos! I also feel like breaking out one of my old Jack London novels! Great shots!

I'm so mad, I missed a beautiful sunset tonight  :(
I was in the city, and the sun was setting between two buildings. The sky was absolutely stunning. So many colors  :D And I missed it. Didn't have my camera with me. Damn.

It's funny. I was mad at myself for not driving out into the desert and taking these photos in a more natural setting. It was Sunday afternoon and the sky looked promising but I was just too comfortable to go for a drive. As the colors formed in the sky, for a moment I cursed my laziness. But this sunset was beautiful right from where I was standing that evening and I would have enjoyed it anywhere, with or without my camera. I hope you all enjoy it as well!

Thanks AB and Lin. When I posted these yesterday, they enlarged just fine when I clicked on them. This morning they're not enlarging (at least on my screen).  Brendan's shots are still working fine so I don't know what's up. I hope you were able to see them full screen.  Maybe it's a temporary glitch.

Thanks for your nice comments!  :)

Thanks Conan! Your very welcome!

By the way, I tried to find a particular "Triumph" youtube awhile back and I noticed they've all been removed because they didn't have permission from NBC to use it. Just thought I'd warn you in case they come after your profile photo! ;)

Thanks again for your comments. Much appreciated!

Gant took this great shot  from London's Waterloo Bridge last weekend but was having trouble posting it here ... So I told him I'd help. :)



I like the subdued color ... kind of reminds you of Letters from Iwo Jima. ;)

  I was in Japan in January; here are a handful of photos from the trip.  As you can see, the grounds are hand tailored; every rock, tree, bush, etc...It was cold, but that meant less people  8)

  On a side note I asked a Japanese friend/co-worker (and during my brief stay, "tour guide") there about "Letters From Iwo Jima."  He said that everyone in Japan of course knew the story, and added that he was looking forward to seeing it.  Nothing profound obviously, but I was curious for his opinion.

Definitely a nice contrast! What's the pointy building? Never seen anything quite like it. It looks like you can see through it towards the top. Or is it not yet finished?

Your photos are cool too Conan. I'm into reflection shots as well. Problem is there's not much water around here! Very nice!

I photographed this sunset on the way home last night. Not quite as dramatic as the last one but not bad. People sometimes ask me if the color is real. I don't mess with the color with any of my photos. Sometimes I tweak the contrast but not very often.  I want the shot to be as accurate as possible. The problem with sunsets is that I'm working with a limited amount of time so I just pretty much point and shoot. We just get some pretty sunsets here!



I know the vertical shots are hard to view sometimes since they pretty much overwhelm the screen, but I've found (and you may already know) that if you are persistant in clicking on the photo, eventually you will get a more reasonably sized picture.

I think the last shot would have been nicer had that cactus been in better shape. Maybe one can find some poetic symbolism in the dying plant in the fading light or...no, actually I think the photo would've looked nicer with a better cactus. ;)

These were taken last week:



You can probably figure out what happened to our dog in that second photo.  ;)

And these were taken a few days ago:



That second photo is the exact same spot where our dog is in the photo above.

That's one of the most appreciated new buildings on the London skyline.  30 St Mary Axe, better known as "the Gherkin".  It's a Norman Foster building.  More photos here: http://www.reggie.net/album.php?albid=205

Hmm, well, a pickle wasn't the first thing that came to mind when I saw that picture and I see I'm not the only one ... from the Wikipedia article ...

Due to its somewhat phallic appearance, other humorous nicknames have also been invented for the building (though they are not in general use), including "Towering Innuendo" and the "Crystal Phallus".

So are you telling me this whole concept of "Mother Earth" has been a big lie....?!   :o
