Are your eyes always turning around 180 degrees? I think we are both the same, we would have lost eachother after 5 minutes walking, making pictures LIKE this....

I know what you mean, Ed. My neck is like that most of the time when looking for shots. My wife, if I'm out with her, rolls her eyes, slips the leash and goes shopping, as she knows that in 5 minutes time we would be out of sight of each other!

Seriously though, I think we are quite alike - and most photographers probably are - that we enter a world of our own when out 'hunting'.

I always remember what one of my favourite photographs on Pano. - Paul Strasser, said, "I am never observant, until I have a camera in my hand". Don't know about you, but that remark certainly applies to me.

Thanks again for your comments and the LIKE. I do enjoy our chats. - David.

Hi David! Paul Strasser is right, got the same feeling. Sometimes disturbing for my companions, but i get a feeling i've seen three times as much as they did. Later, seeing my pictures, i often hear: Huh? Did we walk that same road? I think we enjoy our hobby the same way. Even without a camera............. :)

Greetings, Ed
