It was also a holiday and I was off from work. I did not want to spend the day in front of a TV or computer cooped up inside the house so I we...

Post Typhoon Conditions - all good!

It’s a funny thing about typhoons, once they pass by they usually leave beautiful weather behind them and yesterday’s typhoon was no different. Within an hour of the “All Clear” being announced my wife and I went out for a walk and it was wonderful. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-_ZLwwRQzf38/VDJ...

Hi Wendell, thanks for taking the time to view and comment. Yeah, I think a relationship built on inexpensive and healthy things like walking can't be a bad thing.

Re: My world in black & white

The boardwalk ones are fantastic, nice work. The boardwalk scenes are my favorite too. The first time I shot the boardwalk I used Fujifilm’s Neopan 400 ISO Presto film and a Bessa rangefinder camera. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-v_h_JcuiBFM/UyzE4riJxVI/AAAAAAAAJEw/hW5JKgZVLGg/s1024/img329.jpg...
