Postby DJGM » Wed 14 Sep, 2005 8:18 am

As the "Hello, this is me . . . " Thread seems to be popular, I've decided to expand upon that idea.

Presenting "The SillyDog701 Members Gallery" . . . !

Use this thread to post any photos of yourself, or any artwork that you want to show the world.

Your photos can be pics of you at home, at work, at school/college/uni, on holiday/vacation or
anywhere you like. Artwork can be anything from drawings and/or paintings to photos of
interesting subjects, such local landmarks, beautiful sunsets, or pleasant scenery.

Ok folks . . . over to you . . . !

This is just around the corner from where we are located.

My wife and I enjoy messing around with digital photography. On Friday we leave for Hawaii, so I'll be sure to take a few images to post here. Good idea, Greg. :)

Here's another view:

Thanks, Antony. Our coastline is pretty rugged. It gives a lot of opportunity to capture the ocean. In June we had quite a Tsunami scare but fortunately the earth's plates shifted sideways rather than vertically! :shock:

I do a lot of photography in what little spare time I seem to find. My photo collection is around 2GB worth of 1MB images (uncompressed JPEGs).

Image
From the blizzard this January, notice how only a foot or two of the shrubbery is showing (they're taller than me, and I am 5'5").

Image
...and the car, from the same storm, buried under so much snow that it took awhile for us to drive again.

Image
The garden and pathway at Eastover (located in Lenox, MA), leading down to all the rooms.

Image
Boston skyline (as taken from Boston Harbor before dark)

Image
Boston skyline, at sunset (as taken from Boston Harbor)

Image
The sunset on the water on Boston Harbor. Lens flare is from a 12x zoom lens.

Image
That new bridge they put up, can't remember its name.

Unfortunately most of the other good ones have people in them and I do not want to run the risk of publicly displaying them if they don't want to be.

Then there's also that project of re-creating the effects from Star Wars in Photoshop Elements.

Officially, it is named the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge.

Thanks James.
I only had a few classes in digital photography, and I still don't have an SLR camera. :-)

We don't have a dslr either. I've been toying with the idea of getting a Pentax istDL but I'm not sure I want to lug around all the extra weight and the lenses that I would probably end up buying. We use a little Kodak) DX7590. It's about the right size and it has a 10x optical zoom with a German Schneider lens. A nice size for carrying in a jacket pocket but a bit too bulky for a shirt pocket.

Anyway... today we're off to Hawaii. I'm excited about the picture prospects. See ya later. :)

I've showed those pictures before, but I like those when I put two pictures side by side.

Wow! I see that we have some major photography talent here! I also note that Lorraine is quite a talented artist, altho her art isn't shown on this Forum.

I don't do photography, and certainly no artist, but I do compose digital music. Here are three of my favorite compositions: My World of Music

Keep in mind that I don't take myself too seriously, and I ain't no Liszt, or Searle, just plain old Ramona Jo having fun! :mrgreen: This is purely for my personal pleasure, mixing my love of music with my enjoyment of the digital world.

Hello!!
Very nice music Ramona, you play very well. It's a keyboard I guess. Not sure what they call them, Clavica's or something like that. Your compositions are lovely, very nice and I must say you are talented.

Thanks Ramona , I got a chuckle out of your comment about me.lolol
