I'll add one more. Its the oldest trick in the book and I felt like a bit of a walking cliche when I shot it, but I ended up liking it anyway, probably just because I'm shooting with a good camera again and I like all of the little visible details in the surrounding wall that would have been lost in my photos over the last many years. So here you go.

Ray, you're surely right about there being some very nice photos on this thread. Herman many thanks for starting this thread. I'll have to see if I can find something to add soon.
I'm afraid in the last week or so I haven't been keeping up with the different photo threads as much as I usually do. Between these, the camera dedicated ones and the galleries where people quietly post their shots - and not even counting the P.A.D. blog photos - there are an incredible number of really fine photographs on this site. One of my favorite parts is the random and changing array of photos across the top of the forum that so often lead me in deeper to see even more of a particular member's work.
