The Rattlesnake Bridge on the edge of downtown Tucson, Arizona (my home).

This was when it first opened several years ago. The trees have now grown to the extent that they block part of the view from this angle. In fact there is really no way to get a complete photo of the entire bridge from the ground now.

(Taken on slide film with a Canon Elan2e).
wow, that's an interesting bridge! My 8 year old daughter doesn't like it because it looks scary. Although she understands it is a bridge. I asked her if she is afraid to go and use it, but she siad she will if she's there.

Don't forget the biggest ripoff there is, the WFT-E7A version 2, for only $849:


$849 for a wifi transmitter.  Unbelievable.

Yes, €849 euro in The Netherlands. Although I spent 255 euro (before 30 euro cashback) on the GP-E2 for my 5D MKIII, I would not spent this 849 euro for Wifi support. No thanks.

1. Can't recall the river's name.
2. The Athabasca River

I said it before but say it again: you come isn some amazing places! What a wonderful photos you have posted here. One day will will visit our friends in California but we actually need to plan a travel throughout the States. Actually, I have to plan it. I am sure my wife and children don't have the patience to stop everywhere and wait until I did my shots.

With 70-200mm f2.8 IS II. Calico Ghost Town in California, some old and rusty tools.

Great photos and very nice colors. Did you use a preset or 'played' with the coloring yourself?

Please excuse the number of photos and quality here as some of them are quite old. I'm in a reminiscent mood today and am missing my old best friends so thought I would share some of them with you..my first real post on here too  :)

This first one is Harry, he only made it to his second birthday. He was too adventurous for his own good. A very lovely boy and a real character..  This was taken a long time ago when digital cameras were quite new things..

This next one is Jin, he is still around but lives with my ex-wife now.  Jin actually means silvery in Japanese which seems to suit him quite well.. He's slightly bigger now! He's a Weimaraner if you don't know..

Next is Thomas, he was the most loving cat I have ever met and I've had quite a few over the years. He really knew how to give you a good cuddle.
p.s. My stomach isn't nearly that large anymore!

He was a nice subject to photograph..sadly he died just over a year ago. He made it to a good age which is something, but I am getting upset now just looking at him.. :'(  If you had a bad day he would always make you forget about it, I'm sure he knew what I was thinking and feeling. A real loss..

My new best friend, and totally bonkers 1 year old kitten. She's called Ella and is a British Shorthair silver tabby.

She has expensive tastes like my other half... but she eats all the flys and spiders in our house which is great  ;D

Sorry for the long post.

Very nice series. I like especially the last one. Very cute!
