I currently own what I would consider to be a medium-sized CF tripod; however, I am 6'6" tall and when using my tripod, I have to extend the single middle section of the tripod to get enough height for me to comfortably view my subject. I really don't want to break the bank for a tripod but I do need something taller that won't require extending that center section which causes stabilization issues. Any advice would be extremely appreciated.

I’m only 6’2 but I use a carbon fibre Sirui tripod. When I purchased it about 5 years ago it was acknowledged as the most stable tripod on the market. It has served me well. It is also relatively light not much heavier than the gitzo traveller but at half the price. I believe I paid just over $500 CA including the recommended sirui ball head versus $1,300 for the gitzo and rrs ballhead. I highly recommend the sirui pairings. They easily handle my Nikon D810 and nikkor 70-200 f2.8 v2
I have the sirui m-3204x tripod and K-30x ballhead. Don’t let the low price put you off. When I shoot the gitzo stays at home. Their US website is Global office is They also have an office in Toronto.

Great set AH..Pg. 23

Thanks Photogirl. What i’m Struck by is the similarity of the construction for the covered bridges. The one in Wakefield is almost identical to some of the others that have been posted.

I gather from your response to Patogoraphy that the Handsome Bloke in the Photo was indeed yourself..
You had beautiful Hair..But like they say "Hair Today and Gone Tomorrow"..

Thanks Karin. You’re right on both counts.

p.23 And still a heart stopping portrait. The colors, softness and folds of the shirt plus a pensive, handsome young man really came together in this image - Timeless and priceless

Thanks Pat, it’s been a great ride. My barber eventually got the hair, my daughter got my shirt and my wife of 40 years still has all that remains.

This is a wide-ranging subject, not limited to humans. Of course, your personal coiffure -- past or present -- whether as a selfie or snapped by a spouse, is fine. If you got it, flaunt it! But anything or everything that even faintly resembles hair is fair game! (Are there hairy fish?) Pets of all kinds, wild critters, bugs and birds, babies and crazy teeners, Halloweeners in costume -- you name it. Go to it.

When hair seemed important. Yellowknife circa 1970.

A few from some club shoots from about 10 years ago...Had lots to learn!

Now it’s my turn to laugh after just seeing the Erwitt quote under your shots. Your perspective of the glass buildings is very good.

Great photography and captures! Still giggling about the last one! Well captured!

Thanks clicker. Straight out of Elliot Erwitt, “it has little to do with what you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

Among other things, Edinburgh is a college town with creative students earning money as street performers.
