Been A While

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Been a long time. Went through some health issues, not good. Couple things that made me stop and look at what is important in life and what is not. Out of the woods again I guess. Lucky cat. Lost my job because of it in the end, back to work though. It took its toll on me financially and beat the hell out of my body.

Still taking pictures. Too numerous to post. So will post a few from earlier this week and today. I hope to be around more soon. One good thing in my life, my woman, same one, happy, peaceful and with longevity I am hoping.

Enjoy .....................

James

thanks. did a bot of traveling early July, even that took a lot out of me. Took some great images, some of Canada's only rattlesnakes, close up about 20cm out of its striking range. Will get some images up sometime, now I take them but don't spend the time adjusting or cropping

Good luck with the illness Jim, I hope it isn't our old Nemesis?

Keep your chin up and stay safe, mate. :wink1:

They would be a great addition to the 'Bug photos' thread, James. The bug thread started just as you were leaving us, and at first was bugs only, but soon diversified to include reptiles and amphibians. Have been trying to capture a grass snake to include on the thread, but haven't seen any this year...so some Canadian rattlers would be a coup! Or maybe you could start a new reptile thread....now there's a project for you!

Glad you're getting on OK James, seems there are less and less of the "old guard" of the forum these days. Good health mate.

thanks. I noticed this morning my internet is down, so at the coffee shop. Its an s95 still. I have tried the G1X, Sony NX5, T2i, T3i and took them all back, none gave me the results of the S95, mind you the T2I and Sony had more contrast but the Canon was soft at the edges and the Sony very soft in the center, when taking pictures of a flat brick wall on tripod. G12 same sensor as the S95

Good to see you back, James.

Tell me, why would anybody get that close to a poisonous snake, deliberately?
