Go and have a look at THIS (external link) link. 4" x 5" Kodachromes taken early in WWII. The clarity is just amazing!

I just came across this link: Color Photos from the 30s (external link)

Bad spring, bad! *smacks spring*

Few long days outside and now I have a nice little fever going. Sneaky spring weather...

*grumbles*

That's no fun.....:(

But it is good to get this great weather! Unfortunately, I have to work for a living, but come the weekend, I will be out and about. I am lucky to live here on the California coast, and will be spending some time in Monterey/Big Sur come Friday. Dang, is it still Monday?

California... *sigh* Now I officially hate you :lol:

Okay, okay, not really - but I am jealous. I'm so tired of these long winters and cold springs... Can't wait for summer!

*coughs pathetically*

I'm planning on going to Monterrey this summer and maybe stopping by Santa Cruz also.

On a side note,..Time to catch some z's

I'm a winter person, I hate Australias long hot summers with the added burden of daylight saving they can be really long and intolerable. It was different when I was younger and lived for surfing, but now that I'm a genuine old f#rt...give me coolness :)

Just going into a very nice autumn down here in the southern hemisphere now.

You and me both, Jim...give me autumn light and winter fires any time over bright sun...specially the kind you get in Aus! I really do enjoy the passing seasons in our temperate climate.

I actually like our summer weather (I'm from Estonia). When it's good it's close to perfect - warm but not hot and with very short (and warm) nights.

And I have nothing against winter, but when you get cold/bad weather for almost 8-9 months a year, it starts to get on your nerves...

Yes, I'm not surprised at that. And I have to say that after a winter in Antarctica I was ready for a New Zealand summer!

Another long day, almost 9 hours shooting. I wonder who's going to drop first - me or the camera :lol: At least it was a fun day.

You should drop first.

A dropped person can rest and heal. A dropped camera requires expensive repairs.

Ah yes, didn't think of that. I'd better find a nice place to land then...

Is there anyone here familiar with Latin? I figure some of us are old enough to have studied it in school (or possibly spoken it natively!). I came across a copy of my family crest and managed to get a digital version. Unfortunately, my family was apparently too poor to afford a motto, and I thought I might add one. I am leaning toward “Sobriety is Overrated” but I think that would be much classier in Latin. I tried a couple of online translation sites, but came up empty handed. Anyone care to try this out? 20droger, you were a friar before you apparently became a spy; didn’t Mother Church still make use of the language? Any help is appreciated.

Hmmm...I took Latin many years ago, but wasn't very good at it.

I couldn't think of a translation for "Sobriety is overrated" so turned it around and came up with "Inebriatus optimus est" which kind of means the same thing!:D
