    Cool Quiet times in the old forum ... SONY DSLR Halloween Hall of Shame

    It's Halloween ... 2009! Now, there's a scary thought. I've been at this for 52 years ... being part of or just watching the "spook show" come and go. In fact, I remember one year ... not a single knock on the door and a bowl full of candy ... went straight in the trash. No, didn't need the extra poundage ... it represented. That gave a whole new meaning to "cutting your losses."

    Another year, my brothers and I trudging through an early Chicago snowfall ... where was "global warming" that year? But, at least we went out and muddled through the inclement weather. I suppose it is a "meaner world" when kids decide to "cut their own losses" and not even bother to make the trek around the neighbor hood.

    Anyway, I hope a few show up this year, worthy of being placed in the "Halloween Hall of Shame" posting. I have noticed an intense pick up in merchandising, this year, which tends to give me hope.

    I mean look at this 30 bar layout. I hope the SNICKERS go first ...

    None of those midget bars at my house ... I am trying to put the local Dentists right back to work!

    Guess we shall see what the night brings ... muahahahahahaha

    Bring on your pics of the ghosts and goblins ... superheroes ... faeries ... animals ... clowns ... bums ... teenagers with axes and other gore ... and where is that eye-popping Lady Godiva-costumed babe ... the protester of Health-care taxation ... or something like that?

    Let's see 'em!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.

    I don't believe this ... Halloween 2009 has come and gone, and not one image posted in the SONY DSLR forum (other than mine). Folks, this is going to get real boring.

    I know I can take images. It is not a contest. Put up your shots ... lets take a look at them and see where and if they need anything. Half the fun of using your advanced camera is IMPROVING using it. There are literally dozens of variables you can weed through, other than the AUTO position.

    Thanks, Frank ... we had fun with the image ... footwear aside. The kids had a blast at the Halloween Party they attended, downtown.

    @'JimR' ... where are those shots from that 70-300 extension you recently got? How's that workin' for ya?

    Thanks for sharing, Frank ... I knew you would come through. It's just the rest of our "readership" ... I wonder about.
