Hi Alexxandra, very nice photo! I had a lot of trouble taking the photo above while looking straight up - somehow it seemed to affect my balance just enough to cause a camera tremor. I ended up sitting on the floor which I'm sure looked very strange. Is it just me or did you have this issue too? Obviously a tripod would solve this, but I rarely take one with me when in tourist mode, and certainly touring the Capitol Building, I wasn't going to take anything that could be taken out of context by the security people :-)

Mike, I don't remember any particular difficulty; I was mostly just snapping everywhere I could before I was swamped by the crowds! No, I did stop and be careful about it, but not too much.

Weird, the "chain" used to be one of our more busy threads. Don't let the absolute magnificence of the recent photos scare you away LOL. You can take any "thing" or any colour in the previous pic and run with it. I'm going for a "ceiling" of a different sort here. It's the stage decoration for the Cirque du Soleil production of "La Reve" at the Wynn in Las Vegas.


(photo taken on a cellphone, since they didn't allow "real" cameras lol)

Lovely colors, Jakeroo!
Here's a colorful silk scarf, painted for my wife by an artist in Seattle:

Here's a picture I painted a while ago...not up to the standard of the artist who did the scarf.

Very nice Ertrum. I watched a lady paint one of those "banners" (orchids were the subject) - an interesting process as she used dyes/alcohol/water/rock salts as opposed to silk paints/water.

Dot: once I got out my magnifying glass (lol) I discovered that your painting is very lovely indeed. Good heavens, don't be shy! Nice to see you posting : )

Thanks for the nice comments on my artwork! blush

Here's my hometown with the bunting out for the olympic torch relay. There was only one recognisable person and I've managed to 'lose' her completely in balloons!

Must have been grabbed by one of those giant pikes that lurk just beneath the surface.
