Re: A Very Useful Vee Bracket on a Monopod

Can you think of an advantage of using the bracket versus a ball head? S- Oh definitely. For me the problems a ball head creates are several: the camera is difficult to remove, even with a quick release; the camera in a vertical position is awkward and unbalanced; adjusting the height of the monopo...

Ionic Columns in Lincoln Nebraska?? Say Wha...?

If these seem odd, well, they rather are. They were removed from the U.S. Treasury Building in D.C. in 1908, and gifted to the City of Lincoln in 1916 to honor William Jennings Bryan ...?! :S e 1916 The four sandstone columns in this park entrance were quarried in Virginia and used in the construct...

Isn't it wonderful how the simplest things are the most wonderful;

Actually, it's not that simple. Getting that pair of passionate purples to stand out without coming in tight on them shows exceptional skill! (OK) (Y)

Andi Exhibits a Definite Theatrical Bent Just Like Gramma and Grampa

At the Children's Museum, a favorite photo-op. One section is devoted to theatrical entertainment, complete with a stage, drops, props, costumes, and lights the kids themselves can operate.

Re: Come Sail Away

Re: 'Soldier Boy'

I wouldn't critique a thing. I like it just as it is. You have in your signature line, Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like. I think you managed exactly that! :thanks:
