John boy, great shots! Keep them coming.

Goose, that last post is more in the tradition of Edward Weston, Wynn Bullock or Frederick Sommer than David Muench or Elliot Porter. More ambiguous. More risky. More sophisticated. I LOVE it!

Barn Swallows are such cool birds. I love to watch them fly. So swift in flight.

Especially like that Kitty Hawk sunset, J.B.

You fellas will have to keep this thread going because I have gone through all my transparencies.

Right. Grew up on the east coast, but have been out west so long, that my brain equates sun on the water as sunset.

And somehow it wound up being the last of all the chromes I sorted through.

And, yes, indeed,... there's also been some nice stuff posted by so many of our CPS brothers. I eagerly look forward to more!
