...the story so far:

Nifty is a world travelling 50mm f1.8 mk2. He is in the midst of a world tour of POTN members. Any member can host Nifty for a few days and take him to see the local attractions and events etc.

Nifty is a typical tourist and wants to go everywhere! He has been on the road since late December 2005.

Here is the "Where's Nifty" #1 thread... so you can catch up on the story so far:
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=122135

Nifty (1) travelled to New Zealand, the USA, and Canada -almost. He tried crossing the Canadian border but met with tragedy there at the hands of the border guards. He was sent back to California but was D.O.A.
Still, he did well for a semi-retired gent with plastic mounts.
Nifty (2) is a twin brother and he's carrying on the world-tour from Skip & Maureen's home in California.

Sorry Dwight... pushing (emotional) buttons is what we do... [quoting a judge at my last photo club comp.]

Its the same site as always... its linked above.

Remembering that when a "Nifty Hoster" has photos to put up into the Nifty World Tour gallery, they are to make a new directory/folder whatever in Nifty's gallery. :)

May Nifty always remember his last sunset over looking the pacific ocean. The serenity of the ocean breeze and the sounds of seagulls flying about. Tear...tear...may he rest in peace. But his twin lives on!!

On first glance at that Morro Bay sunset I instinctively yelled "Shark!"

Hmmm, there is something suspicious going on here ... someone pre-planned Nifty's demise over a year ago ... notice the date on the tombstone!!! I am now even more concerned about a world wide terrorism conspiracy!:cry:

If not he can huddle in with his cousin and their R'L atives on one of my excursions to the highlands
