Nice, desertrose. I'm a bit of a doggy freak, and that's some great work.

I've actually got a shot of Buffy making that expression.

Absolutely the most beautiful sunset, Old Raven! Have you won awards and sold your photography? I am sure the answer is yes to both. You do outstanding work!

Yes, I have done lots of commissioned pet portraits. In fact, I spent two years just doing them alone. Could not even get to my other genre, Native American and desert wildlife, at the time.

Angel!  Love the red sunset.  You are so creative.  You must have quiet an imagination!

OldRaven -- What?????????????  You have never entered a contest or sold your work?  Now, this is a hint! Get your work out there.  I have done many art shows for many years and I have seen a lot of good photography, but yours surpasses a lot of what I have seen!.....really!  This isn't BS I am giving here.  Get your work out and let others enjoy it as well.  I am sure you will reap many benefits once you do.  thumbs_up.gif

Flattery will get you no where..........except that big soft spot in my ticker. wink.gif

I'd like to, but for now, I'm just enjoying the hobby part of it. Perhaps one day when I have prints bigger than 3x5". king.gif

Will do, desertrose, will do. smile.gif I'll do it for myself for now. And if I ever get the confidence in my work where I can get a showing, I'll simply do it for the show. I have no plans to become a proffesional photographer.

I don't think I posted this in this thread, but here's the old Minolta I use. I'm sure it cost a small fortune in its day, but I picked it up for about $100 Canadian on Ebay after our old one, of the same make and model that Ange got at a flea market for $50, started leaking light. Repairs would have cost around $250-500, so buying another was the only option. At least the first one had a wide angle 28:1 lens, and the new one (actually older) had the original 50:1. Plus, we've got a spare XG-1 body, if we ever damage the case.

Something about these old 35mm SLRs that digitals just can't touch. king.gif

CelticRose is right, oldraven! Your pictures bring tranquility to my soul. It's also great to hear from a fellow ADDer thumbs_up.gif Both my daughter and me have been blessed with that mess lol.gif (emphasis on the blessed) You really should look into professionally taking photographs. And I love your dog, Buffy! Our golden retriever/irish setter mix, Amber, passed away a month ago, so for right now I am living vicariously through other dog owners biggrin.gif

Old Raven,
I noticed that this is an old post, but since I'm a newbie, I just "found" it.. It is a beautiful place.
Where is it??

Hello Annham. smile.gif That's at the Jasper Park Lodge (obviously) in Jasper, Alberta. One of the wonderful Rocky Mountain towns that hosts breathtaking views and world class skiing.

The lodges there start at $500 a night, and that's for a strip lodge, with three cabins each. That porch view shot is literally the scene from where we sat and read in the afternoons, or sipped coffee (among other things wink.gif ). Angela's boss payed for everyone and a guest to take the long weekend there. One of my all time favorite weekends, needless to say.

Some fullo brought in this 1931 Ferrari Grand Prix race car replica to my brothers' shop. The only thing is, the first Ferrari wasn't built until 1940, and even then, it was forced, by Alfa Romeo, to cary the name Auto Avia 815. The first car to wear Enzo's name was the Type 125, (125 was the size of all 12 cylinders, coming in at a whopping 1500cc ), and that came to life as a pure race car in 1947.

This is actually a VW 1600cc air cooled chassis with, what appears to be, an old Alfa body, since they were producing back in '27. Or a Fiat, who was in the game since 1905, when it won the Congo de Ventoux hill climb. That car had a 16.2L (16,200cc) beast.

It's funny to look at, because it has this huge nose, with nothing in it but a battery and gas tank, where anything from a huge inline 4 to a tiny screaming V12 would have been at home. It's fully fiberglass and has all the weight directly over the rear transaxle. Donuts anyone? Could you imagine the fun you could have with this sort of machine. I'll make a thread in the garage so you can see some other views.

This car is one true bastard, but it's one of the coolest things I've ever seen. cool.gif

Oh, and I updated the earlier photos, so they work now, and they're not so small you can't make them out. smile.gif

Those are awesome, oldraven! Would it be alright to make them into a slideshow for my desktop? They are so relaxing and beautiful!
