    Thanks Toad! I posted a link to my online album with 50 photos of these wonderful cars…this is just a sample. They really were fun …and you’re right…lots of character and you can imagine all the stories they could tell. :)Check It Out

    Thanks @tersha … you wouldn’t believe the number of people who told me about the VW they once owned…with the fondest of memories…when I posted these photos on Facebook. Seems just about everyone once owned one. :) Lots of love for the Beetles and Vans.Check It Out

  • mikell Replied to a Topic (An Evening at Clearwater Beach in Florida)

    Thanks @karamen …the last is one of my faves too. I was pretty far from this family when I took the shot with my telephoto lens and it was only through the magic of Lightroom that I was able to improve the exposure on their faces. :) I have another one of the young boy taking a photo of his parents kissing. Did you see that one in the…[Read more]

    Thanks @susan and @tersha …your comments/feedback are appreciated.

    Susan …. Yes…the monk is my son…took a lot of photos of him during his visit…something about those orange robes against just about any background. ;) He posted the one you like walking towards the sunset, as his Facebook page cover and it received the most likes…[Read more]

  • mikell Replied to a Topic (The Industry of Paper Wasps)

    Thanks @harvey-melvin-richards and @tersha

    It’s interesting that the “nest” they are building doesn’t seem to be getting any bigger…I’m not sure if they are losing interest in it or if it’s just really slow work. I will keep an eye on it for awhile longer. :)Check It Out

    An Evening at Clearwater Beach in FloridaSunset at Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach in Florida is a daily carnival. Besides being one of the best beaches in the country, on a hot summer day, it also attracts evening visitors who just want to catch a great sunset over the Gulf waters. The pier and area at it’s entrance are filled with buskers and…[Read more]

    Thanks for the nice feedback, @astaroth and @zerileous
    I didn’t really get that close …maybe a couple of feet away… and they were much too busy with their work to even give me any notice. I don’t think you need to worry about wasps if you leave them alone and they are also very beneficial as they help with pollination and eat a lot of…

    The Industry of Paper WaspsI got out my macro lens today and snuck up on these Paper Wasps again while they were working on a nest of sorts, attached to a leaf on one of my Giant Bird of Paradise plants. Even though I didn’t get really close, that lens did a pretty good job. I must take it out more often.

  • mikell Replied to a Topic (500 PX?)

    I’ve been using 500px for awhile and really like it because of how my photos are displayed – good size and resolution. I haven’t made money from sales yet but haven’t put much time into promoting either. After using the site as a FREE user for a long time, I finally decided to pay for the “Awesome” membership and create a portfolio of my work…[Read more]

  • mikell Replied to a Topic (Dragonfly Island)

    Thanks for the nice feedback @susan and @nikon-nut. I was really happy with this photo as soon as I took it – just one of those images you know is going to be a “keeper”. :) I’m going to have to put down my camera soon and just start enjoying the new surroundings without being compelled to take pictures of everything…I’m sure the novelty will…[Read more]

    A sunset concert in an outdoor park on Florida’s gulf coast was a good opportunity to take pictures of the children enjoying themselves on a beautiful warm evening.

    Dragonfly IslandI’ve just moved to Dunedin, Florida (Tampa Bay area on the Gulf) and have been taking photos non-stop of my new surroundings, since there are so many different subjects and things I’ve never seen in my previous Upstate NY home. A small pond behind our house has been particularly attractive for the birds, insects and wildlife that…[Read more]
