This is a beautiful photo! The composition, color, and subject are great. I am a chemist as well and can confirm Jer's observations regarding what an art glassblowing is and how truly beautiful much of the glassware used in chemistry is.

It's not the easiest of hikes, but it's certainly worth it. These are great photos & bring back memories! I managed it several years ago - slowly & on crutches - but got all the way down and all the way back up in a day.

Gettysburg is definitely an emotional visit. One can only imagine the emotions felt at the reunions way back when.

Jehiel actually returned to field service, made second lieutenant, and left the Union Army in 1866. He then went to Nebraska where he lived until about 1890, when he returned to NY. One funny aside is that his wife Sarah's features remain easily recognizable in many members of my family yet.

Great series!
My great great grandfather fought with the 20th NY and was wounded at Gettysburg (took a musket ball to the face) and survived. My father has his Springfield trapdoor rifle and my Aunt has his Gettysburg reunion medal. He was one of four brothers to have fought in the Civil War. Two were killed and he was wounded.

I had a pair of X1/9's when younger and loved 'em! The bumpers didn't help these but the 5th gear and the Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection certainly did. Carbed versions here in the US were hopelessly strangled. Fantastic little cars - too bad they rusted so terribly!

Perfect machine for getting around in heavy weather. What it lacks in physical beauty it makes up for in toughness and ability. Ours has 262K miles (421K km) and counting.

Sorry for the (very) late reply, but the prewar BMW is a 327/28 cabriolet. I believe this one is owed by an orthopedic surgeon whose name escapes me at the moment. This particular car is mechanically very similar to the 328 but with a few more creature comforts. There were something over 400 of these made with the more powerful 328 engine and ~1000 more with a less powerful 2L 6 cyl.

Nicely done! My dad has my great-great grandfather's Springfield Trapdoor 50-70, which he had when he received his 40 acres in Nebraska for his service during the Civil War. I believe that he was the original owner.

OK, it's not a car but should appeal to gearheads - an early (1911, I think) aircraft engine:


The engine of the 1909 Alco "Black Beast" which won 2 Vanderbilt cup races and participated in the first Indy 500. This is a running car and not a museum piece, by the way. The owner gives rides in it:

Indeed it is a backyard shop, but the owner is deeply talented. 1938 BMW 327 Cabriolet

It actually goes much further than the bodies being hand made - there are all manner of oddball details that differ from one car to the next. For instance, over the course of ~1400 cars made over 4 years there are two completely different dashboards, gauge placement is different in so many that nobody really knows what's correct, and even the colors of the gauge faces changed...and of course nothing but mechanical bits from one car fit another. My car is # 273, his is in the mid 500's, both are 1938 MY and were only made a few months apart, but all of these things differ from mine to his.

Thanks for your interest! (Cool photos BTW!)

Sure! It's a second 1938 327, owned by my friend who is doing the metal work on mine. Even though they were made only months apart, there are actually significant differences between the two.

I know the gentleman who has the very first Fiat 500 sold in the country (US) - Prima #11; 1-10 were kept by Fiat and #12 was just sold by Jay Leno. Anyway, he uses it as a daily driver and has had no difficulty with it. I like Minis, but the newest ones are anything but mini and BMW's quality lately has been spotty. (I've been driving BMWs for 10 years, but won't have one newer than the mid 90's, honestly,)

Hey there - Certainly there is a great difference between 150 mm and 500mm, but since said Sigma 150-500, I assume a zoom lens. ,It's just a guess admittedly, but perhaps this one:

Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM APO Autofocus Lens 73A109 B&H

No critique here- I'm not smart enough, but the K100D only goes down to ISO 200. With that said, despite being basic it's a quality piece. Mine's been around the world, sorely abused, and has shutter actuations in the tens of thousands yet it works perfectly. I swear I could hammer nails with it.
