Here are some shots of the coffee grower, the coffee beans drying and then the finished cup of coffee.

There were a few steep and slippery hills to climb in the heat to get these shots but I was not carrying a 50kg fertilizer bag like some of the locals, so I cannot complain.

I enjoyed the coffee after the 4 hour walk.

It seems just when Seraphim got home with the camper, I left with mine. Three week road trip to the NW including a wonderful 9 days on the OR / WA coast with Richard, my youngest son.

Really enjoyed catching up. Love the water shots, Walt. Ronstar on fire with the car shots and the killer AWARD WINNING BW. Enjoying the wonderful shots from Aus_E_expat. Seraphim, great job on the still life ... love the faucet shot as well.

Very happy with the new Sony RX100III. Carried it on my belt the whole time and got a lot of shots I would have missed with the big Canon ... though the Big Gun did come out when the situation called.

Overwhelmed with the number of pics to sort through. Thought I'd start with some Sophie the dog shots.

Flaming Gorge (UT/WY)



First taste of the Pacific, north of Gold Beach, OR



Bandon, OR


Collecting Sand to deposit in the truck ... WA coast


Quillayute River near Rialto Beach, WA


Crescent Lake, WA


Back Home and happy

Great shots of Sophie as usual, Mr. Paul!

Keep them coming, and enjoy your trip!

Welcome back Mr Paul! The first and fifth shots are my favorite. We still have to do the continental NW. Maybe in the spring?

I've been too busy woodworking to take photos. But I'll take some when I'm done - I'll bring the toy box into the "studio" for some studio shots.

Yes, been following along, just not shooting much. By the time I get the morning stuff done (either gym or cardiac rehab class/exercise) it's mid-afternoon and generally not a good time to shoot outside.

Readers of this thread may be interested in checking out a new tool for searching the Library of Congress' collection of 170,000 Depression- and WWII-era photographs. Perhaps the most famous of all:


You can search by location, date and subject matter. Other categories are coming.

Here are 3 more photos I took last Sunday at the Jember Carnival.

Great event for photographers.

All of these taken with Nikon D7100 using 70-300mm lense.

This peninsula on the OR coast is called Netarts Spit, with Netarts Bay to the right.

We camped near the trailhead to Warm Springs Falls, the first of many falls enjoyed on and near Hwy 138 west of Crater Lake in southern Oregon.

Great landscape shots - Mr. Paul. And Aus_E_Expat - great crisp color shots - it's amazing how colorful those costumes are. I have that same 70-300 lens. It's a great one.


Tried some indoor shots of the toy box I just finished. I'm just not set up for "studio" shots. My setup and lighting need improvement after seeing indoor shots by others in this thread.

Not a good picture but it's the first one taken in many years. The moon was low on the horizon so shooting through a lot of atmosphere it's not nearly as sharp as it should be. I've got a lot of work to do to get better.
