    [quote author=“David Nelson”]A statue of Jeanne d’Arc (aka. Joan of Arc to us Americans) in a French cathedral. Unfortunately I don’t remember the exact location, as it was several years ago. Taken with my very first digital camera, a 2-megapixel Fuji FinePix2800Zoom.

    David, that’s Notre Dame Cathedral.  :D I was trying to figure out how I knew that photo, and I went through my old photo albums and there she was!  Different angle, but definitely the same version of Joan.

    Ah ha! I was wondering if that might be it, but most trips are such a whirlwind that it’s one of many cathedrals I saw on that vacation. 3+ years later it’s kind of hard to remember. :D Thanks!

    Nice wedding picture, by the way. Looks like the lighting was great that day—nice and even.

    Is there any story behind this photo? It looks like he’s cooking a meal on a rowboat… smile

    Yes, I took that photo in Egypt, and that’s the Nile. The person in the rowboat was selling snacks to passers by and other boaters.

    This is a picture of a workman carefully fitting a cement weight into a crane on a really rotten day…

    This was taken in late March of 2003 just west of Hibbing, MN. The left tower is near the end of 31st street, it was built in the 40’s or 50’s. The right tower is in the process of being built, it’s across the street from the left tower. The middle tower is on top of Pill Hill, it was built in the 80’s, it’s about a mile from both the other towers. The large building on the right is the old Cobb-Cook School.

    :cry: I’m not linking to larger images until I get some photos scanned in.

    Guy on a skateboard. Back to ye olde Canon EOS 350D with 28-105mm lens. Not the best quality, since it was a fast-moving subject shot under poor lighting at ISO 800. Click to enlarge.

    This topic needs more pictures!

    Taken earlier today while experimenting with my newest lens, a Sigma 70-300mm, f/4-5.6.

    Click on above pic for a larger image.

    This was taken in the summer of 2000 somewhere in the NV desert. We had just bought and picked up a manual 25” paper guillotine in Burbank CA and were on the way home to MN. The picture is a little dirty because I had it taped to the inside lid of my toolbox for a few years.

    This is the exact one I have: Briar Press | Museum .

    It’s hard to believe that my cutter is almost 130 years old and it cuts as straight and true as any modern cutter (it just takes a lot more sweat to use :wink:).

    I just got back from a week in the Seattle area.  I was there for a work trip, but got to spend a lot of time with my friends as well.

    Here’s a photo of three year old Henry, on a hike with myself and my friend (and his mom), Jess.
