<p>One highlight of a soggy, stormy week was Frank Baiamonte's brief visit. We met on Friday afternoon, ate gyros and babaganoush for lunch at my favorite middle east joint Zania, and then walked around the Pioneer Square and the waterfront shooting on the street and chatting.</p>

<p>Like the seagull Haig, and Michael that last one really appeals to me - I'm not sure why, but I think it's the great focus on the person and the subtle blurring of the background. Chune-Hoong the simple colours of the first image draws me in also.<br>

I have two to add to - the first one I am amazed actually turned out. I was bouncing, the young people were bouncing, and the castle was bouncing, and yet the image has some focus to it - more than what I thought I would get.</p>

<p>Looks good so far! John, did you use a ND filter? I am impressed with the tonal range. And Michael, I agree with Denise that the last shot is quite striking, something about the slight blur, the faded colors - great!</p>

<p>I have been enjoying two new lenses as a "nature walk' kit - the DA 35 and the FA-J 75-300. It is the end of fall here, winter is coming.</p><div>00UxIr-188309584.jpg.20074c192f620ee330fda64ce721484e.jpg</div>

<p>I can never get enough autumn shots. All are wonderful. The season seems to have slipped me by once again. Damn! Michael's parking lot is really nice also. Here are two from yesterday, all taken with my new K20D. Oh no, not another rowing shot. What can i say, I've been into it lately.</p><div>00UxOH-188377784.jpg.bde2c9140c153cf7c9dee03fe0a966bf.jpg</div>

<p>Haig, what =is= that thing behind the man? A mutant harpsichord with an eagles' nest?<br>

Nick, I really like "Morning Shadows"--very nice use of colors and lines.<br>

Mis, very nicely done use of color and shadows.<br>

Bob, the mist on the water and the rendering make the rower shot very appealing.</p>

<p>My contributions this week come from a business trip to Miami. I had a total of an hour of shooting time over three days. The first is from the balcony of my hotel room with the 10-17 fisheye:</p><div>00UxRK-188419584.thumb.jpg.851cb8f05417c9fdc1ba39c46b61d8f1.jpg</div>

<p>I didn't do much this week. The one shot I offer was; as I was driving down the road, I noticed a really awesome view of sun rays coming from behind a cloud, by the time I pulled over and got the camera out of the bag, the clouds shifted and ended up with this nice shot.</p>
