    Unbelievably good weather today. 72, dry, and sunny. All GH2. The wider angle shots were taken with a Voigtlander Nokton 25mm w/Hoya circular polarizer, and everything else was shot with a naked 1958 Leica Elmar 90mm. There might be ONE taken with the 1958 Leica Summicron 50mm but I put it away after a couple shots. (Oh and it was take your dog to the ball park day.)

    Who understands the significance of the fourth to last photo here? There must be someone who will recognize this... :rofl:

    Hello Bullmrkt,

    I'm trying to solve your riddle. Which image is "fourth to last"?
    Does that mean from the 4th to the end.... 4th from the bottom?

    Give me a hint as to which image I'm searching for significance in.
    The flood & speed limit images are different from the overall context..

    Curious..

    You got some awesome colours here mate. All that red, wow.

    There are two things I picked out in these pictures that I don't see in Australia. And that is, the funny ball game those blokes are playing and the cars are driving on the wrong side of the road!

    No clue about the fourth to last photo - nice ballgame shots though!

    I was at the Phillies/Astros game yesterday. Stuck my gh2 with the 100-300 in the car and left home early, hoping to have time to wander around the stadium and get some shooting in. Hit sooooo much traffic, though, that we got there LATE and missed the first inning and I just left the camera gear in the car. We have about 15 games this year - all Sunday tickets, so I'll get some baseball shots.

    Sorry I was referring to this photo... Here are a couple hints. I live in Dayton and the game was obviously in Cincinnati, and Thor had his way with what once was standing here.

    Was this where the Jesus statue was?? I stayed at Columbus for a short while a few years back.

    Ahhh the giant Jesus statue. I remember driving past it while heading down to Kings Island from Sandusky.

    Beautiful weather by the way, all we had today was rain and then it would rain a little harder.
