To Suppaiku: Reply

To paigekeiser: Japanese children at play

I'm so glad the photo pleased and inspired you. My motto is "an unviewed photo is worthless". Of course, I try to be choosy about which ones to post :-)

To themarcside: Your comments on my photo

A week before I shot rodeo pix with lower ASA and gotsome "creative blur". My lens won't go near F2.8. I agree with your remarks on cropping. As for the higher ISO I'm split 50/50 for going to a...

To wanderlust: F-16s

I was sitting on a chair very close to the runway. The planes pretty much fly over the runway during much of the demonstration. That I caught this exact moment is pure luck!

To djslim: Visiting the past

You're right. I had forgotten this and lots of other photos I am no getting to enjoy. In many cases I took them, developed the film and never printed the picture. Thank heavens for the Photoshop...

To SoupDragon: Delayed reply

It really wasn't Tokyo but somewhere south of it. I can't recall the name of the place.

This poor fellow was a very successful maritime lawyer but died in his 40s.

To SoupDragon: More on the photo

I think I will re-crop and ditch the bar sign. I might like it better that way, too. Thank heavems for Photoshop CS2 and its cousins. Mistakes can be eliminated and history revisited.

Re: To Suppaiku: Interesting sidelight

I must say I liked all the Indians I met, Muslim or Hindu. The only one I found annoying was one guide in New Delhi who was to the left of Mao Tse Tung.

It is a shame the few result in hell for...

To Suppaiku: Interesting sidelight

While visiting India our guide showed us several women who had VERY nice jewelry and clothing, although they were "peasant" villagers. It turned out to humor these "silly women" the men elders let...

To jsec: Objectionable guy

I guess it was one I posted of a Muslim woman who was running into her house. We had gone to the village and the guide had paid the village "chief" for our being there and allowing us to take...

To Mrgud: Workshop

Well, it is different, Artistically it's a matter of choice. While I prefer the color, I see the appeal in the B&W. Thanks for showing it to me.

These days I'm using the "Save for Web" option in Photoshop [email protected] and it probably does lose a bit in quality.

To dialecticon: No flash!

In those days I was a total purist. Since I took it about 41 years ago you can bet I don't remember the shutter speed or f stop, but it was probably f1.4 on my 50mm lens. Nowadays I am using a Nikon...

Sometimes I think I would like to go back and revist my old stalking grounds in Misawa. But ... I think you are right. That world is gone and I really don't think I would enjoy the new world.

Re: To SoupDragon: It was Tachikawa

To the best of my knowlege Tachikawa AB is no more, at least as an American air base. Misawa is flourishing and remains a gigantic listening post monitoring the communications, especially satellite...

To hexagon: Low contrast

I agree with you re the technical equality. It caught my fancy and I posted it on a whim.

Thanks for telling me where it was.
