Abandoned homesteads always peak my interest. There is always a back story or history. I find myself wondering how the homestead came about, what family lived there, and how they must have been proud to live there when new, why they abandoned it, etc.
Curious; how close to you was the alligator?
Thanks. Had an idea what it meant; just didn't want to use the term sometime and look like I didn't know what I'm talking about. At my age not knowing what you are talking about can be a hazard.
The other day I saw the term SOOC used in discussing a topic. Couldn't locate that discussion. Can someone explain the meaning of those letters.
Great picture. I live in Central Texas and went out to the Tx. Hill Country for a couple of days to get some fall photos of the leaves turning, but this turned out not to be a good year for the changing colors. Planning to go to Big Bend NP in April to hopefully be able to catch some photos of spring flowers.
Side note: We and another couple went there in the early 80's as my friend was getting into photography big time back then & wanted to catch later Winter and early Spring flowers Thanksgiving; 80 degrees. Christmas; about 80 degrees. 1st part of January the same. So we took off to go camping with our horses at Big Bend. 1st couple of days; highs 70's, low's 40's. Third night it went to 15 degrees and we had snow and sleet. Then back to 65 degrees a day later. The day after that 18 degrees. Oh well. We did enjoy the trip, though.
Thanks everyone for the good advice concerning Roberts Camera. I just made a lens purchase from; the price was good and the individual (Christina) I talked was very helpful.
I knew I could count on UHH'ers for good advice.
Would like feedback on Roberts Camera. I am looking at a nikon 55-300mm af-s vr lens at what seems a reasonable price.
My wife and I would like to go on a rafting excursion in Big Bend NP in April, 2018. Was wondering if anyone on UHH has done likewise and which outfitter they would recommend. We would be taking a 1/2 or 1 day excursion. Would appreciate any feedback.
Have always gotten good advice from UHH'ers, co I hoping someone has personal experience in this regard.
Great pictures. I also enjoy taking a photo of the occasional abandoned building; house, barn. I also muse about the fact that at one time years ago (how many?) a family lived there, and what it must have been like living there. Ditto, an old abandoned gas station or store that is deteriorating after many years and the fact that at one time there was probably the original owner who was so proud of what he had. Why these structures end up this way is a story of its own.
I am looking for a nikon AW 100, 110, or 130 waterproof camera for a one time rafting trip in Big Bend NP. I am on retirement so am looking for best possible deal. Refurbished or used (reliable), as camera will get limited use. Appreciate any info.
whatdat, forum name.
I'm looking for a nikon coolpix AW100m 110, or 130 camera for a rafting trip in April, On l retirement income so I am looking for the best price possible. I am watching ebay on one. Would appreciate info on any you know of that are available. Refurbished or used (reliable) as this camera would get limited use.
So, what's wrong with listing the info? If someone does not have an interest in it, don't read it. Some of us starting out learn from seeing the info with the posted photo.
By eye shade, I assume you are looking for a viewfinder or articulating screen eye shade; not a lens hood. Correct?
Tell me about it! I took a course in photoshop cc. Instructor made things needlessly complicated; plus it was capable of doing much more than I needed. Trying to learn lightroom. As a backup, using nikon vnx2 for post processing.. Will keep on trying to learn lightroom.
