That's my question every time I see those bales around here - what's ironic is that "they" are trying to ban plastic straws - bwahahaaa!!!


Mc Donalds changed there straws over here for wax paper ones then some one found out that they also could not be re cycled haha

After the Battle of Bothwell Bridge over 1,000 Scottish Covenanters were imprisoned in an open area adjoining the graveyard of Greyfriar's Kirk in Edinburgh. Two hundred fifty of them were sentenced to exile in the Colonies and were loaded onto the ship, The Crown of London. On 10 December 1679 the ship sank off the Orcadian coast of Deerness, drowning 200 of the prisoners. The remainder were shot as they struggled to shore. The monument to the tragedy is about a mile from the road in this desolate area.

I was sitting here going through some of my files, just looking at what I have captured over the last 8 months and I came across this photo...it was taken on an outing with my good friends, we had been together all day and being a person who does most everything alone I was getting a little edgy and needed a break from being with people, so I used the line, "Hey you guys keep going I'll catch up!" and I found this little cluster of trees and I ventured in and just sat down on the ground leaned back, closed my eyes and breathed, emptied my mind and just plain relaxed. After a few moments I opened my eyes and saw this shot and took it. When I got home a few days later, going through the photos I had taken, I came across this one and said to self, "I really like this, let's see what you can do with it!" and I played a very little bit with the windows photo processing on my computer, got a little frustrated and just slid the color slider down to no color and saved it. I seen it tonight and thought, "WOW! There is a wonderful capture of a time of solitude!" I looked at the picture info....this was my 275 shot I had taken with my Canon just 9 months ago....I'm now well over 10k....but I looked at this and the calm feeling that I had when I took it just flowed back into me... and of course I needed to share....thanks for allowing me to...

First looked at these on my quick break at work; #2 is definitely the one even with the little bit of snow; but I must ask what state is this...and a log home is what I've always wanted, in fact a few years back I designed one 24 x 48 wish I had been able to get it built but life throws you curve balls sometimes that you just can't hit, oh well someday I may get my little old shack in the woods...and if not who cares, home is home wherever it may be! Thank you for sharing these wonderful places of solitude.

I was totally alone in 1946, standing on an ice-covered alpine lake so I could capture this view. I don't know how thick the ice was, but the air was frigid. The static electric discharge in the image apparently was produced when I advanced the film -- or maybe when the Compur shutter blades opened and closed for this one exposure. But I suddenly heard sounds and looked down to see thin spidery lines fanning out in the ice under my combat books. I was quite a few yards out from the shoreline, but I managed to carefully get back to the shore. I apologize for the 73-year-old negative's quality, but the scene was such a prime example of stunning solitude that I decided to share it with you. The site was Konigsee; today there are lake cruises there for tourists.

That image is amazing and the static electric discharge adds an air of mystery - it's the first thing I noticed and I thought you had caught a daytime lightning strike at just the right time - your account of it is great!

maybe that was a lightning strike, that cracked the ice...

we are lucky you made it off the ice!
