  1. After some bad experiences with "photo tours" I had given up on them. Two years ago I relented and signed up for one while at Denali and again at Skagway. They were both excellent. In Denali the guide was a professional photographer who took us to her favorite places. My wife and I were the only people on the tour and it was great. In Skagway we went on a little bus with about ten others. There was a pile of tripods in the back of the bus. The guides on this tour we also great and took us to very good locations. If I can find the information on those tours I will post it. tom
  2. Boarded the Crown Princess in San Pedro for a trip to Mexico. We were a bit early so we picked up lunch at the buffet and went out on the aft deck to enjoy the SoCal weather for lunch. The bartender, Reynaldo, saw me and said, "Welcome back Tom, can I get you a drink." Should I be embarrassed that he remembered me?
  3. This may be cheating, but... The transparency had been missing for a bit and I just found it. Zion Canyon in November a few years ago. So it's kind of like it is from this week because I just scanned it.
  4. I have used Shutterfly for family and group events. It works okay and lets others add their photos. For my photos I use Smugmug. I don't sell photos through their plan but it gives me a web option that I can deal with.
  5. Gyro stabilized camera on a helicopter over the Sunset district of SF.
  6. Thanks. I have been playing with an R-72 filter. It is much cheaper than a dedicated IR camera, but you can't use a camera with a built-in IR filter. The filter is pretty dense so a tripod helps.
  7. No snow here. We did a quick trip to Cabo on the Royal Princess.
  8. Mike, May of 2019. We were in the last cabana, all the way at the end. Everything was great. Well, except for the lack of wind when we rented a catamaran. After we got back to the ship the itching and bites started. It goes on for days and you have to ask your steward to change the sheets on a daily basis. The ship's doctor, seen for a different actual medical reason, called them the Dreaded Princess Cays Sand Fleas. She said that bug spray would have worked very well... But we still had a great time.
  9. There is a B2 in this photo, honest. It is the little black line above the guys head on the right. Thought I was doing a video but pushed the wrong button...
  10. Dave, Your post and the picture made me smile. Excellent!!
  11. I find that after five or six Corona's the tacos are just fine.
  12. It seems like GoPro realized that their customers were not video editors and wanted something simple, such as Quick. I have been using the Corel Video software and it seems to work. Taking the videos seems to be the easy part. It's that editing thing that takes all of the work...
