Hi everyone... Hope this finds you all well and happy....

Still in the midst of my lost years, but I have finally bought myself a new toy... A little canon p&s long zoomer (50x optical) for hiking with the girls. Should I have spent the 400 bucks on a new lens? (probably) - but the other hiking cam was getting long in the tooth, 10 years-ish. And anything I can do to try and do to reconnect with a camera is a good thing...

Had to work the fist day I had it, so I just goofed around trying to learn the UI as I have never had a canon... And snapped some pics around the soon to be torn down San Francisco Concourse...

Now if I can remember how to insert pics...


















and the smallest katydid nymph I have ever seen...









Much love Little Chucky D

Great to hear you're still kickin' Pink!
Your eye for the shot is no worse for the lack of use.
A couple impressive shots here!
Congrats on the new toy and hope to see more soon.

Dr Edneck I presume,

Good to hear from you... Hoping things are good with you and yours.

School is just about out, my summer is a full slate of work and hopefully some decent staycations...

I am trying to head up to Orcas Island WA to see the legendary Damn Brit and clan in july... wanna meet me up there? :D

Would love to fit a drive to the Grand Canyon in, but I am a dreamer.

Good to see a post or two from you Mr. Pink! Lovin' your shots as usual. You have a great eye.

Still want to get out shooting with you and fast Mike again some day this summer.

Say hello to DB in in Orcas Island. That is a very cool place.

Mr Pink!
Dang, I live close and I don't even get to see you anymore. Good to see these pics and you have such an amazing eye; these are all so brilliantly captured. Glad you have a camera, any camera, that can keep you connected to your art. Not sure what a "Canon" is, never heard of that brand before, but Im sure it aint bad. :lol:

Give my best to Gary and clan when you get up there.

Fast Mike, The only canon I had ever heard tell of was the old Copy Machine at the Jailhouse... But apparently they make cameras too...

Why dont you put down that hammer you using to build that mansion, and come up to WA with me... Kids and all! We can take that Island by storm.
