When it comes to electronics, it's well-known that the board itself burns to protect the fuse...
I always thought it was the other way around

... as I'm severely affected by boredom (enough to write at work), I just ran outside to photograph an airplane, with a moderate rain. 1/ the photos are blury, 2/ perhaps I should avoid behaving that way, 3/ it may kill my camera as well.
4/ it might kill your employment?

Theorically, yes. Murphy's law says this isn't always... sorry, says it's never true

Might. At this time I could argue that's my way to spend the couples of minutes I don't spend smoking

G.T. ---- you can live to work or work to live. all the ausies i've met worked to get the $s to do what they loved. I did the same, quit at age 50 and never looked back. I pick up xtra cash shooting pics for pocket money/travel. As another forum member says "do what makes you happy, anything less will make you unhappy".

That's an interesting approach I've been thinking about, not a long ago. And sometimes, I just feel so bold I just want to escape for a couple of minutes - after that, I've kept up working until the end of the day.

Great shots, chubasco. From two different world and both wonderful.
Great perspective on the 1st.
That swamp is definitively wet.



This is certainly special. I usually hope for some sunshine .
Bart, thanks, too kind, well, it has been hot for so long that the rainy weather
we're having is a nice change.

Chubasco - I really like the perspective of the brick photo. Your Alabama photo reminds me of swimming in a "lake" in alabama when young - I used to be too scared to put my feet down, 'cause there were slimy tree trunks down there from when they'd reclaimed the swamp to make the lake. So I'd throw a raft into the water and jump on it to avoid actually walking in it.
Immunogirl, thanks, I thought I should post something. My friends that are from here warn me about poisonous snakes, but I haven't seen one in all the swamps I've visited. My hometown is Sandpoint, Idaho, 60 miles from Canada, and we don't have any poisonous snakes there-- maybe I should be more watchful. I learned how to swim in Pend Oreille lake, it's a little bigger and deeper than the lakes I've seen here.

Hey, I must have ausie roots: that's what I do.
By my calculations, I should be able to call it even when I'm 65

Love the bridge shot! Wonderful contraption at the side.

Could that contraption be a weight, for an ancient draw bridge mechanism ? I've seen a similar stuff in Dublin.

Bart n G.T. -- there has been little rain here in florida. most places are long suffering drought and brush fires are a regular occurrence. so i went out looking for a bridge with water to at least get something 'wet'. the mechanism on the right raises and lowers a section of railroad track so that tall boats can pass thru. not sure if it is working any longer.
Thanks Bart, glad you like the shot. Hope you can get out before 65. I chose an early release so i could wander. stayed in hotels for 1.5 yrs and changed residences 9x in 12 years. not the lifestyle for most, but i'm hooked on it and happy.

Ivoire, once you're happy with your lifestyle (and of course, don't do bad things)... I think it's the main concern.

"Bur I just love the life I lead,
Another beer is what I need"

Final entry for me, from archive... Somewhat wet (it was raining, after all), somewhat wild.

A bit of loud noise, blue smokes of two stokes (may I write "I love those emissions"? ), under a gray, rainy sky of Normandy.

EXIF (this is History ) :
Camera
PENTAX Optio 30
ISO 100
Exposure 1/60s
f 4.1

Wild is right, G.T
Great sense of movement.

Thanks. Needless to say I've been lucky... BTW, it was took in October, 2009 during the Norman Classic enduro race, Beauval en Caux, near Dieppe.

G.t., the depth of field on that works really well.

It just quit raining and this guy flew over so heres entry #2.

Chubasco, i really like the color and that slick wet look you captured.

Barondla, great classic lines. your image reminds me of why i escaped to florida for a couple of months. it was cold and rainy into May and the rains seem to be continuing. if i hadn't postponed my return, i would have landed at O'hare near the time they had the tornado warning that sent everyone to the lower levels. but then i bet i missed a great wet, wild and stormy pic
