Kelsey! What a feast for the eyes! I always love this kind of sky but have never been able to capture by my camera. What kind of camera you jus got?

The duck is swimming hard trying to push that rock. Somebody there is an animal training genius :D

I like the city surrounded by nature there, as in picture with the dog. Something refreshing about it. Looks like a cool place to hang out for a couple years.

Thank you everyone!

Yixi, the camera I got is a Canon SX100 IS. It's a very fun piece of equipment!!

That's not a duck, it's a sea gull!

This is amazing! Throgh the froth, for the first time, I can actually see the spittlebug (the last picture)!

Jim, it's the best place on earth. People come here don't stay for a couple of years. They stay.

aww thanks Terez! :) Photography and writing are simply hobbies of mine that get me out of the practice in a positive way! I'm glad other people enjoy the products of what I simply just enjoy doing!

That's great; it's also exactly why I play the violin. It's my "fun" art when my "work" art (writing) gets to be a grind. I think every performance (or other) artist needs to have an "art for art's sake" hobby, no matter how much time they need to devote to their "real" art. And it's very cool to see the results of your art hobbies.

The visual thing isn't accurate for some purposes, the interesting witness problems you mentioned for example. It's naturally going to have limits. But for something more fundamental it's fine, for example arranging some mechanical parts around in your head to see how they all might mate up. I think maybe it doesn't even have to be a complete and literal image that you have. In another recent thread, maybe about tuners, a guy named Christoper (I thin) talks about a "brain thing" that he discovered that helped him with intonation. I think it's something to do with this. I've heard the visual version termed "structural visualization" btw. I'll have to look at Drew's rep. hits again. I couldn't figure it out the first time :)

Misposting does have the unexpected benefit of livening up a thread conversation, I must say. Waking people up. (Particularly the poster who cannot delete their misplaced comments.)
