Re: A Spirited Political Discussion in the Library

I love it! Aside from being hilarious, it's very well done! I love the egrets in the painting (yours?). I love the footman (footbird?) lurking just outside the door hoping to pick up some gossip to share in the scullery. ("The Master is furious with the minister over the dead fish amendment!") The l...

Re: In Memoriam - Matt Quinn, Revisited Collection

I'm so sorry he is gone. I love that you have posted some of his best work. Matt was rapidly developing the ability to see in monochrome thanks to that trusty Leica of his. I used to think I could do it but really I just shot B&W because I could process it. Unless we are completely color-blind it ta...

Re: Dali's The Nobility of Time

Here's the sculpture that inspired me to do a Masters on Dali. It's in the city of Andorra La Vella, capital of the tiny country of Andorra. But it's right in the middle of the shopping district surround by tourists, duty free shoppers, and boring looking modern stores. So I plucked it out. Suggest...

UNION PACIFIC "BIG BOY" 4014 at Columbus, Nebraska

Union Pacific Railroad's flagship legacy steam engine, one of only 8 survivors out of 25, and the only one restored to running condition, as of May, 2019. This was her first run out on the mainline, for the 150th of the Golden Spike. She was in fine fettle. She stopped in Omaha but I didn't want to...

Re: 'Planes'

Just a couple planes from my recent airport days visit and one of 'Air Force One' that I have never seen before, other than television and other people's photos. The first two were taken with a 16mm fisheye. Always need practice with that lens. Why the title for 'Cincinnati Kid', well that was on t...
