The Austro-Bavarian conspiracy (many pics)

Discussion in 'European Get Together' started by Harry S., Jun 17, 2007.

  1. Sometimes, one EGT is not enough. That's why Michael and I (initially unintentionally) started to meet at intermediate small EGTs.

    The break from job and everything else around me was welcome and Helen, Nadja and I spent 3 wonderful days in Bavaria.

    As promissed, my pictorial contributions (I will distribute them among several threads).
    BTW - thanks to Michael for my new avatar

    There is a special story connected with this image (thread in preparation)

    As you can see we were out in the forest or in parks most of the time - kids with their off-roaders, of course.

    Nadja, admiring Eileen's artistics :smile:

    NIKON D200    ---    200mm    f/8.0    1/125s    ISO 200

    The weather was fine, and there was a bit for everybody. Even some swamps for Helen and me :wink:

    Nadja was extremely happy (most of the time), she really freaked out a couple of times.

    She will tell her experiences in a separate thread.

    The following pic would have been the absolute winner, but as usual with her, the moment I pressed the trigger she made the dreaded step forward and left the focal plane.
    Still, her smile is so precious to me that I decided not to discard this pic - for the family album it is good enough (technically).

  5. Harry,

    And... :eek: :eek:  Michael ! Harry has blown your head! :rolleyes: :wink:
  6. Harry a wonderful thread. Your daughter is incredibly beautiful; what a smile! By all means keep that shot. Years from now when she's grown it will bring back such wonderful memories.

  7. Harry, what fun!
    I love seeing Michael at work behind the camera.
    He's so serious and precise, very German don't you think.

    I can see you all had a marvelous time.

    Nadja is such a charmer!
    BTW, her eyes sparkle the same way yours do! :smile:
