    kind of a skeptical yet confident, "lets do this" type of feel.
    Dylan. I hope your Dad will get better soon. You did a fine job with the photo. It should be on a billboard.

    Mostly I spent the day at the tiger enclosure failing to even see him. Giving up on the tiger now.
    Excellent shot!!! Were you panning, or did you wait for him to cross your field of view?

    The cam wasn't locking focus fast enough, this one was prefocussing on his predicted flight path trying as best I could to pan with his movement and then shooting as he came into field. K1W1's motorbike advice applied to birds really. Except fast shutter speed because I don't like blurry wings and this bird flaps it doesn't glide.

    He was one of the many men who helped clean up the great city, but at a huge price.

    Nowadays he has problems sleeping and breathing and also stops breathing in his sleep, and the city is finally trying to take notice and help the other hardworking individuals besides the policeman and fireman that were affected.

    I just hope he gets/stays well.

    My father has the exact same thing. He uses the same machine as yours. Heads up friend.. he will be alright! I cant remember the exact diagnoses, but its a version of sleep apnia.

    Snapped this one while walking along the campus waterfront. There's just something about the rich, vibrant sunset colors I love.
