  4. LOL
    i think i've gotten that response on a few occasions, myself....:biggrin:
     
  5. PERFECT, LEIGH
    i really appreciate you adding those here
     
  6. Hmm, I am finding looking at these images to be a very "vacant" experience. Although red is one of my favorite colors, and the x is one of the more unique letters of the alphabet.......Somehow these images remind me of the story of the "Emperor's New Clothes"
     
  7. Smugmug seems to be experiencing some difficulties right now.....
     
  8. smugmug is having its WORST OUTAGE EVER
    they use amazon.com servers and it is a huge disaster for the pros who are using smugmug to make money after weddings (there are more than a few here who are in that category)

    bad news
    it's been completely down FOR HOURS
     
  9. It just struck me as funny. red x up and people commenting on the wonderful picture
     
  10. sometimes a RED X looks much sexier than an actual image of ME.. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:  :redface::redface:
     
  11. this one is from 2006 (the earliest year I had pictures online), and for now, is still one of my favorite captures. The player is a very nice looking young man whose looks (and long lashes) would be the envy of any woman. I am sure that and him being small of stature has been a source of frustration for him as he wants to be known as a tough, intimidating baseball player (throughout his pro career, he has been really tough on himself and goes overboard to show how tough he is (and he is one tough baseball player). Anyway, in this game, he was using his plus speed to come home (to score) on a very close play. Unfortunately the catcher already had the ball in his glove when this young man approached home, so he only had one choice--plow into the catcher and take home plate hoping to knock the ball out of the catchers hand (this is normal in baseball). He managed to take home and knock the ball out of the catchers hand, but in the process, he took a clete in the nose. The next three innings he ended up taking ice and tissue to try to stop the bleeding, but still stayed in the game at second base.

    another image from the same season and featuring the same tough player. He may be short, but when a runner was trying to steal second, and the catcher overthrew the ball, this young man jumped 5 feet in the air (did that several times that season and drew a gasp from the crowd every time), caught the ball, and tagged the runner on the way down (before his feet touched the ground). Afterward, I looked at the picture I had gotten and had to ask one of the other fans how on earth the runner was tagged out.

    I'm going to start with when I first really got into Digital photography...Me over the past couple of years.

    2005 - Here I am on my wedding day back on 10/1/05 right after we said "I do" (taken by our photographer using a Nikon D100)
    [​IMG]

    2006 - My wife and I traveled to Banff National Park, and this is a shot of us standing on the glacier in the park. (Shot taken with my D50 by a lady who was from Georgia...go figure!)
    [​IMG]

    2007 - Here I am after going deep sea fishing off the coast of the Outer Banks, sunburnt and sporting my long hair that I had been growing for 10 months. I ended up cutting it short again about a month later.
    [​IMG]

    2008 - Back in May of this year, I'm throwing my euro change into the Trevi Fountain in Rome at night...
    [​IMG]

    Bonus - A shot I took (holding the D300 away from us) of my beautiful wife and I kissing in front of the Eiffel Tower at night back in May of this year...

    Thanks Greg...I had been meaning to get a group of pictures like this together to post somewhere, and I figured this was a good place. It's tough to find shots of myself that are not blurry, as most people are not aware they have to use the AF-ON button to focus! :wink:
