    Two beams from the World Trade Center arrived today to be used in a memorial. I went and watched the procession on a hwy overpass and snapped a few shots. Heading out to the arrival ceremony in a few minutes. Pretty somber moment as they passed. By the way there was a reported 5 mile long, 1,000+ escort of bikes riding along as the truck crossed the state.

    Very nice! Sexy car too. I thought of getting a GTO, but they're a tad cramped on the inside for an everyday car.

    You took some nice shots though!

    I'm using a $120 Lumix FH20 P&S, but the little guy turned out some pretty nice pix if I do say so.
    first 2 (uncropped) are from the Milwaukee Masterpiece yesterday and my honeymoon in Door County WI last week. I like all the reflections in the Duesie's chrome, and was impressed by the depth and color accuracy at the winery.

    Last 2 are photos from my wedding on Aug 15th by a german buddy with a Nikon DSLR (that he had shipped to me when the Euro was 1.5x the $). Saved some serious bucks ourselves getting semi-pro wedding pics for free!

    I believe that is Hal in his 1911 Mercedes race car. I had a very exciting ride in that car on a wet day with a straight axle led to drifting in nearly every corner. Only problem is terrible brakes!

    I made a quick day of it and didn't get to talk to many folks so I can't say for sure. I have it on i-Phone video (amazing quality for a phone BTW) starting up and being flagged off. You really do hear each cylinder at idle.
    Great bunch of folks both entrants and spectators.
    Reminded me of this one in the Rolex display at Lime Rock a couple of years ago.

    Very nice, and I think the framing gives a good perspective. I would love to see the detail in the contrail formation in the full resolution shot.

    I think the focus NEEDS to be spot on for any portraits to be effective. Those eyes need to be pin sharp. First shot is focused on her hair and second one is just generally too soft. Hope this helps. :)
