That field is stunning, Phil.  How long do the blossoms last?  Very nice Flickr set.

I only wish I could see the videos on screen.  I just come up blank when I hit the start.
That happened to me, too.  Wait 10 seconds or so and it will come up.  Did for me.

Great find, Phil.  Seems that great finds are plentiful in your neck of the woods.  The videos are a nice addition to the Flickr set.  I should do that more often when shooting digital.

The confirmation email arrived at my junk folder, so for those who have trouble registering, maybe that's it.

That did it for me.  Thanks, Santiago.

There does not seem to be a place to simply post photos regardless of what shot with.  I am thinking of photo essays, No Words, etc.  --- James

Mike -- I tried to register last night, but have not yet gotten a confirmation email.  Should I try again?

7  General / Photography-related | Workshops, Book Reviews, Site Reviews & Suggestions / Winogrand Exhibit on: March 22, 2014, 11:09:47 AM
Yesterday I saw an impressive exhibit of the works of Garry Winogrand at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.  Apart from some of his well known photographs, he never published or exhibited about one-third of those presented here, and more than sixty printed for this exhibition are being shown in public for the first time.  Most impressive.  The exhibit runs until June 8, 2014, then it goes to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, from June 27 to September 21, 2014.

Good to see you posting again. Maybe it'll be catchy.

Thanks, Les, and very good to hear from you.  I'll be up in MA for a few weeks in mid-April.  Maybe it will be spring enough for a photo get together.  Hope all's well with you and Claudia.

Warm regards,
James

I just picked up a Panasonic ZS20 camera because I felt the need for an always-with-me camera with a long zoom lens. One thing I wanted to be able to do is get photos of birds that are just good enough for me to look them up in reference books when I get home. I think the ZS20 will suit me well (see the review here: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonic-lumix-dmc-zs20-tz30-review/4).  Its lens is the 35mm equivalent of 24 to 480mm.

The first shot below is a street grab (at 54mm) near me in Washington, DC.  The next photo is a separate shot (not a crop) of the signage done at the 35mm equivalent of 480mm.  No wisecracks about "speed humps" please.  Have a look at a couple other shots and larger versions at http://www.flickr.com/photos/jamesmck38/sets/72157642658252604/

If you are in the market for a tiny camera with an ultra-zoom to tuck into a pocket, have a look at this one.

Phil, you already have my pledge.  IMO, the 5-yr plan may be a bit optimistic of our chances to keep everything going.  The savings are not that great.  --- James

For the time being, I'm willing to set up a temporary site at ProBoards as a backup in case the current forum suddenly vanishes. 

Although we will probably be able to forestall shut-down of this site for at least several months while attempting a transfer from Craig's ownership, I think it wise to proceed as you suggest just in case something goes awry.  --- James
12  General / The F Stops Here / Re: Setting up a new site on: March 18, 2014, 06:31:15 AM
Only Craig's estate can turn over permissions/ownership of the forum.  Maybe we need to find out whom the executor is.  Anyone know what state Craig's estate would be filed in?  Hopefully, he didn't pass away intrastate (no will), and the courts have ownership now.

Phil:  Did you receive my PM?  FWIW, I have just sent an email to Larry (at his address of record here) asking for clarification of exactly what he has done (unsuccessfully). -- James

Added:
JasonB was the member who notified us of Craig's passing here (http://nelsonfoto.com/SMF/index.php?topic=26297.0).  Has anyone tried to contact him for any details he may have?
13  General / The F Stops Here / Re: Setting up a new site on: March 17, 2014, 01:37:28 PM
Any one can pay either fee to keep the site going, but no administration permissions would be accessible.  Nor would any data be preserved if we just waited until the domain lapsed, and bought it outright.
PF

Thanks for looking into this, Phil.  I suggest that we pay the $20 the domain registration, first thing.  Then pay in advance three months of the hosting fee (10.75 x 3 = 32.25).  The three months will give us time to figure out how (and if) to get "administrative permissions" transferred.  Did QWKnet say how that might be done?

I am sending you a PM about how this total of $52.25 might be funded.  I think continuation of the content of the current site is much better than a new site, if this can be done.  Once we get "administrative permissions" (if we can), the site can be changed to suit (something which is long overdue, IMO).

Does anyone know which hosting service we're currently using?

From an earlier post by Julio:

QWK.Net Hosting, LLC, support@qwk.net
866 679 5638
208 522 0435 (fax)
http://www.qwk.net/

I would think it appropriate for someone to contact them, explain the situation, and ask them exactly what needs to be done to get "ownership" transferred.  If someone has already done this, I haven't heard about it.  I think everyone agrees that a new site would be OK, but keeping the contents of the current site is much preferable.
