    Shots of the musician are interesting. It seems that the contrast of the 70-200 changes... but maybe just the lighting angle. Prefer the first one.

    I know that this is stating the obvious but I assume that you have confirmed that it does work on 230v 50hz power.

    I'd love to see some details of a $2k projector for home use. It must be something very special.

    As far as shots in B+H are concerned all I will say is didn't anybody have a phone camera on them?

    Bye Dread. Thanks for visiting. Seems you and the family got a pretty good sampling of the USA from West to East, but missed the North (hey) and the South (Y'all). glad you outran the tornadoes, and managed to hit some pretty good venues. Thanks for sharing, and hope you all come back some day. Australia is high on my places to visit. The last time was rather brief, as a member of the US Navy (ca. 1968), so don't remember much (had to join AA upon my return ).

    Hope your trip home was uneventful, and your recovery quick.

    Thanks all for sharing in this holiday with us.

    Yep we're all back home safe and sound and have managed to sleep through the first Australian night so hopefully the jet lag will be fairly minimal. It was long a long and stressful flight for me traveling with smallish children but they managed it. Having to look after them severely cramped my drinking on the plane which I guess was itself novel for me to sit in an aircraft without imbibing.

    We did manage a last minute walk around New York before our flight out. It was raining moderately as the tropical storm Andrea barreled through but we left before the worst of it hit. It was really our first and only wet day in the US in the 5 weeks we were there so I guess we were very lucky on the weather front with unseasonably hot weather during our stay. The storm delayed us on the tarmac for 90 minutes though during our flight out. I took a few grab shots of NY in the rain but it was hard to shoot 1 handed holding a brolly in dim conditions taking care to minimise camera exposure to water and trying to shoot fast changing pedestrians scenes to boot. All the shots were from the D90 as I had my cameras packed by then.

    K1W1 here's the projector link and the pricier model I was second guessing. Don't tell me there's something cheaper in Oz. To be honest once I found I could get full HD for under $3k I didn't look as hard as I should have at alternatives. My last projector that cacked itself was only XGA and cost me just over $5k around the turn of the millenium (as I was an early adopter).

    All I was concerned about was the voltage but I see from the specs that they are multi voltage like most electrical products so it should work fine. I have no idea about local projector prices.

    BTW the lack of jet lag may be related to the lack of alcohol consumption on the flight. :-)

    RE jet lag; you are going East not west and if I remember correctly it seems to have a lesser effect on you going that way. Looks like quite a load carrying back, have to rent a truck to get it to the terminal? Glad that you enjoyed your trip to the USA. Enjoyed seeing, reading and following the trip. Come back soon.

    Good to see you all back safely, and seemingly bright-eyed and bushy tailed. And good to see all your luggage arrived safely too! Certainly nothing wrong with those D90 shots. Thanks for all the trouble and time you took in posting all your travel photos (well, a select few anyway).

    PS You have the exact same garage panel lift-up door as me. Just thought you'd like to know.

    PPS Don't forget to mow the lawn.

    Wow, that was a quick (for us) 5 weeks. I'm sure that by the second day in NY flying home started sounding pretty good.

    Kind of going through Dreads holiday withdrawal. Guess it's time to go somewhere myself... Maybe Shasta or Oregon, or both. Overdue trips to visit friends and family.
