Another nice one Paul.....I do remember when that looked nothing like it does now that Grapevine is a tourist town. 40 years ago it was nothing you would give a second look. Regards!
Thanks. Yeah, the development has been nonstop since DFW Airport was built, I guess. Even back in '93 when I arrived here, the town was nothing like it is now. Shopping malls, hotels, restaurants, and a revitalized Main Street changed everything.

Walking on the bridge over Lake Grapevine towards the Gaylord Texan Hotel/Resort - and then the view behind me . I wore Jeannie out on this excursion! (X10, taken a month ago)

Haven't been there.....my last visit in that area was many years ago. Mostly little dusty roads around the lake. Everything changes.....

Regards!

I guess I should confess, too. I sometimes take pictures with my phone

In bad light only b/w can salvage anything... This one at ISO 2,500.

It turned out nice, though. I like the look.

Cool shots, savoche and jacquot I'll shoot with whatever I have with me - a phone, an old p&s, whatever! Here's a Fuji X10 shot from last November:

That's actually for the 600 NMR cryo probe... I'm not one of he scientists, but I keep everything working for them. We have 600/700/800, come on down and play!

Awesome! I try to validate them (and other laboratory instruments) for pharmaceutical ID test, and characterization usage.

If you ever wondered how elephants were made, here's the answer! Found this outside a shop in the city of São Tomé, the republic of São Tomé & Príncipe.

I still enjoy this thread, and need to contribute more. I have not lost my love for Toy Cameras. The K1 has garnered most of my attention for the past year, but when I leave the house, it is still the X10/X20 that I grab. Just too many advantages to name, but you guys all know them well.

Going out to get me a Chicken Fried Steak.....X20 will be my buddy as I leave out...shots later?

You guys keep up the good work here, and Paul...you have surely mastered the X10!

Regards!
