Thank you, **sir! Well, almost. I should have done just that ... my knees were not happy me with me after this one. PS - I need one of these, or one similar to it.

Ludo Turcina, Thanks!

In suicidal position?

Still no train Kevin


Or buy a camera with a swivel screen ?

Or a stool ?

This is a nice DOFOF image - very good.

One of these by all means! I think I should get me one, too.

Tomas, hahahaha, no, not quite.

Jethro, I had wondered why the D7000 didn't have a swivel LCD. I concluded the hinge would probably take away space needed for all the on-body button controls. (maybe). I think I'd rather have the buttons!

Mr. Verbiage, Yep, just like that! Odd price range on those gizmos. I've seen it range from $50 to $250!

Re: tilty screen

I have a (kinda) equivalent camera to D7K with one of those screens. The buttons are rearranged, but mostly still there; however, you can only use the (sloooooooooooow) live view focusing with the screen - much worse than some compacts and all MILCs - SLRs are just not optimized for this kind of focusing. Would've been fine for this shot, but not for anything moving.

Right on track here Kevin! Love & Like the low perspective and bokeh in this one.

Like #6 You should title this; Goodbye Cruel World!

It may be more shots of rail tracks, but what a perspective. I like it because it is quirky and a bit different. Regards from rainey old Scotland, Nik

Erik, Ken, and Nik,

Thanks to you all or the kind remarks - all much appreciated!

Hi, Kevin. Wonderful perspective!!! LIKE I live in a part of the Country where towns were established and grew due to the railroads. In fact, they parallel Route 66 through my tiny town. :) Best regards, Phyllis
