This one is of a sunset in our back yard in the fall.

A few of the pictures I took on our recent Colorado vacation...
The Maroon Bells:
Twin waterfalls at Hanging Lake:
Suddenly, we were transported to Middle Earth:
Complete with cave bacon... mmmm... bacon.
Not the greatest picture, but cool that we saw a large herd of bull elk at almost 12Kft:
... and some wildflowers to top it off:
Some from this summer:
Blanca group and the dunes from Crestone Peak
Maroon Bells, Pyramid, Snowmass, Capitol, from Conundrum Peak
Some of the presidential range, from Mt. Washington, NH
View from Uncompahgre Peak
These were taken with a Nikon 180mm ED AIS manual focus lens from the 1980's (maybe even the 1970's, I'll have to look up the history of the lens) on my D90. Manually metered. Used a PK-13 extension tube as well. Some great classic Nikon glass is out there that take incredible pictures if you can forego auto focus.
From the San Diego Zoo... which is totally bad ass. Can't believe it took me this long to go visit the place.
The little monster building an increasingly complex trap outside my front door. Based on the growing number of bug corpses he's piling up, we've decided to keep him around for a while.
On the way to Lake Berryessa near Napa, CA
On the Boardwalk in New Jersey.
Another Boardwalk but opposite Coast. Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey, CA

My kid took this with a Nikon Koolpix. It won first prize and a new camera in Lady Bird's wildflower magazine contest in the under 18 division. Yes, I'm a proud dad.
^ Awesome picture, congrats to your son.
You'll be buying him a $1k dslr and $1k lens in no time!

Cell phone talk zone, TGV between Paris and Aix-en-Provence, 2003. The last day before the train strike that summer. I love France by in my last ten visits we've had our rental car hit, another car broken into, and this train strike that made getting around quite inconvenient.
Nice shots, Patrick.
Re: the rusty wheelchair. Ten years ago I was looking at an old golf clubhouse north of Tampa that had been expanded and turned into an insane asylum (that's right). The brokers, groundkeeper who opened the place up for us and I walked around until pretty near sundown. Part of the discussion included the building's status as one of the "most haunted" buildings in Florida. Since the building hadn't had power for some time there were no lights, so we moved to the exits. This took us down a hall that had room after room with equipment of different sorts -- you really couldn't tell what it was or what it did -- just left by the old asylum operators. I looked in a couple of rooms and saw scenes just like your photo. Creepy.
I think that's a cool story. But let me call a friend of mine who's an expert just to make sure.
Edit: Found a link: Anclote Manor Then again, when I got back to Orlando I told the senior partners the site was "nothing special." Dumb move, since I now know the land was awesome.
