It's amazing how many of us share similar hobbies, and also how easy it is now to capture images to share with almost no cost in processing fees (film). It doesn't matter if you have a prosumer dslr or a cell phone pic, just the art, the act and the power of capturing an exiting (or boring, but neat subject matter) to share is what makes photography great!

Here's a couple random images to start off with. I figure if we all can post a pic or 2 at a time, it will make a cool collage of everyone's work.

Here's a little hyperspeed drive with my old '74 2002.

I was downtown Chicago, and this lady was just posing on the ledge. So I grabbed few pics

Gene you do some great photography.



Thank you. It's one of those hobbies that there is so much to learn, and improve on. The majority of my pictures are copied/duplicated of what I see others doing. I don't have that "eye" yet. But it's just fun replicating the photos. Here's one from r/c car racing the other weeek.

Here's one of my Daughter and Wife. It was taken with an old argus c3 range finder camera. I think it's from the late 30s as compared to the features that it has on it. It's really not a valuable camera since it was one of the most popular camera to buy as compared to the disposable cameras of now. I think I only paid $5 for it.

That is a very cool picture Gene, it is neat when you catch the memorable moments in life.

Here is my first contribution to the thread. This was taken at the Fawn Grove show this past weekend. My dad is actually the one that snapped the pic and he did it at just the right time. This young fellow who I don't know his name had the time of his life in his pull. I will have him in the video from the show when it is done, it made my day seeing him pull and brought a tear to my eye from his shear enjoyment.
