    Ah hell...I really don't shive a git if people call me names, hell maybe some day I'll hear one I haven't heard before...

    Thanks, on the times I don't care if people see me taking pics, I am doing free-hand longer shots, and most night shots it's a D3000, if I am going for discretion it's a little Canon A590is. This thread is a mix of both.

    Nope, smelled like...books and incense...

    I am working on something along those lines now. I have been down town making some new acquaintances... passing out some hand-warmers and stuff, and feeding a couple of the elderly couples I've met. Some down there have let me take their pictures even knowing I plan to post them. I was hoping I could post something like that here...it may be a bit controversial for other forums.

    Please do post pics and let us know if we can help. Photography gives a voice to people who are ignored. Homeless, old, retarded, war stricken all have 'interesting" faces but very strong stories that we should all know about. Part of the DPx vibe is that we give a shit.

    Thanks man, glad you enjoy the posts.



    Some of them may not mind the thought of being a mascot...

    I spend a lot of time wondering where all the ones I see out and about during the day go at night now. Our previous mayor got rid of the mission and ran them out of all the city parks because of being so close to the tourist areas.

    I have a tight deadline on what I am working on right now, but then I'll get back to that in the evenings.

    Thanks, since you are in another country I'd be interested in your take on the supply situation there.

    Thanks John, glad you find them interesting.

    The sign is at Stringer's Branch where Dayton Blvd. crosses it, the first pic is Mountain Creek just north of Signal Mountain road, and the second pic is the storm water run off that runs between Renaissance Park and Cherokee Blvd. down there near the incubator.

    I ended up with an unexpected tight deadline on another project but I'm looking forward to getting that bushcraft knife out in the field next week I hope....gotta do a break job on the truck this weekend :(

    You should go out to the levy the last time I walked it it was amazing how much that creek changes in three miles East Ridge side was clean Shallowford road end was so nasty the smell was enough to knock you down. I know you will get to the knife when you get a chance, get me a couple shots when you do i would greatly appreciate it. you still need to come over so we can finish these other projects

    Great thread. Years ago the day I moved to Miami hurricane Andrew that night. Woke up the next day to a different place. Machetes all over. Cubans were cutting cars out of trees and trees out of cars. Everything was sold out. It was crazy

    Hurricane Andrew was a mean one. At the time it hit I was up here in Tennessee, but my Grandmother lived in Hialeah, My aunt lived in Homestead, and my father was living on Soldier Key. I got to hear a lot of stories about it and they sent me news paper clippings. The next time I went down a lot of things looked different.

    I wish I could remember the street my Grandmother lived on but i just can't recall it. I liked that area, I miss going there. She had two big avacado trees in her back yard, we used to have avacados any way you can think of.

    Not what you think...I think :) . They're not Republican parking lots but Republic parking lots. It is the name of the company that owns the vast majority of the parking lots in this town. I could do a picture heavy post consisting of nothing but one picture of each Republic parking lot in this town. They also have the city's tallest building.
