No doubt. Personally Mike, since our Bay Bridge shoot, I've had a cold / flu thing :bleh: that's finally gone yesterday. To make up for it, I got out this morning before work and caught this Ghost Tractor.

Bloody quiet for sure!

I count on you pros to fill my need to gawk at beautiful pictures around here and, quite frankly, you've all let me down! Not to mention that I haven't even opened my camera bag in weeks, but that's MY problem. I rely on the inspiration of others to entertain me. I love to live vicariously through your art as my life is endlessly dull and extremely uninspiring. Work, work, work. Yuck! At my age one would think I'd be free of the tedium of the daily drudgery of the work-a-day world, but yet here I am. Normally I'd be out in the fall to witness the splendor of nature as trees bask in the glory of their change from boring green to splendid red or yellow. But our autumn was as dull as my life. We didn't get any hard frost in September so the leaves simply died, turned ugly brown and fell listlessly to the ground. Ho hum. Nothing photographic about that lackluster performance Mother Nature! So here I sit on the cusp of the promise of another 5 months of cold and snow; bored, tired, sick and deeply lacking in the desire to record any of it for posterity.

But I digress.
Cool ghostly tractor pic! :tu:

Egad! Jay you need to get out more! I'm back to shooting every day and although we've had some nice fall color around here, after being in the Sierra a month ago and seeing lovely color there, I'm not as happy with the local fare. I ready for the rains to come and refresh the world. It's mostly brown around here.

Just get out a shoot a bit!

Sorry :( The upcoming baby seems to be taking up all my time recently. Tiffpix has been great about keeping up with some of the site maintenance and updates, but I've been incredibly distracted. Figures the pregnant one would be better able to keep up with her responsibilities than the lazy husband...

Our little girl is due in less than 3 weeks!

I have been pondering how to reach a broader audience with FPZ, however, and have been cooking something up which should be revealed around January or so if everything goes according to plan.

Also, my new camera just arrived yesterday. I've been having a ton of fun playing with it today :D I'll try and share some of that experience in a new thread, but none of my usual DNG software does a very good job with the files since the camera is so new...
Photons are your friends! :-)

New camera??? What ever could it be? :w00t:

Calm down FP - it will all be okay soon.

Just wished I lived closer.....

FP, wow, 3-weeks to b-day. Wow. No apologies needed. Looking forward to the new arrival and full story of course when you have time. Best wishes.

I miss keeping in touch with all of you as well, but I've been falling behind in everything lately. I even have photos from months ago I haven't looked at to process. I'm hoping while I'm off on maternity leave I'll have some time to go through things, and I'm sure we'll bore everyone with too many photos of our new arrival. :)

FP should post an update of my new shape though. ;)

Oi, life happens to us all.

Frank, Tiff, if I haven't said it already, congrats! You are at stage two. I have just done stage one:

November 6 was my one month wedding anniversary!

The couple weeks.. heck the month.. leading up to the wedding was nuts, and not for just the usual reasons. Our families had to travel to Beijing, I got sick, my bride got sick, and well, spare the details. I did not snap a single photo at my own wedding, but there is material from my sisters that I'm only just getting to sorting.

Dust from the wedding did not have time to settle before midterms started at work.

Add to that fact that my bride prefers to be out rather than in and well, not getting much time computer time to sort what photos I do have, and that hasn't been many of late. Last night we were having coffee and I finally had a real camera with me again. There were live musicians in the cafe and it felt great to take photos again with something that wasn't my iPhone.

Will try to post something later today.
