Nice set Jay. Great reflections in the first two (I always like reflections off the glass of buildings). I like the shadow play on the third one too.

Thanks. Early dawn, when I shot first two, is one of my favorite times of the day to photograph. There is a stillness to the world that I enjoy. The shadow projection on the rear of the cathedral is what made me take the photo. It is almost as if the shadow is holding up the roof. Had it not been for that, I would probably not have taken the photo. I had been wandering around the French Quarter photographing neon signs and was on my way back to the hotel when I got the 3rd.

Right on cue, the perseid meteor shower is at its 2016 peak August 11-12 (potentially 200 meteors per hour). See here for sky maps and details. [I don't expect clear skies, but maybe you'll get lucky.;)]
Fantastic hint Bob.
In the moment (7 a.m.) we have 100% clouds and it's raining... :notworthy:(n):meh:

Kind regards
Klaus

I found this strange bug outside on our deck, early this morning, when taking Charley out for his morning bathroom break and to get the newspaper:

My wife has these solar charged lights that are placed in pots on the deck and glow all night long.

Great shot of that dragonfly, Paul.
Handheld I assume?

Good idea
Klaus
Yeah, I waited until sunrise, so I didn't have to setup a tripod. I think we had a butterfly one as well, but the sensor had turned off for the light (it charges in the day and then light is on at night).

Sorry to repeat the message but Bob's right. It really is a great subject but we need to get out and take pics this week. That's what Collective Shoot is supposed to be about and it's why I like this forum - I presume that it's designed to get us out and about with our cameras now; to make us think about something we perhaps don't normally do; or just make us think about a different approach to what we've done before. Having said that, we had rotten weather here last night and it isn't clever tonight either, so I have not chipped in so far. But I will.

Great dragonfly. I think I've seen that kind over here too. Nice one Paul.
