I've been travelling and am finally starting to pull together some of photos 
shot along the way.

This first one was shot at the Naval Submarine League annual symposium held 
Alexandria, Virgina where a bunch of us who rode around in the boats in 
life-times get to hear what non-classified information is available by the 
who run (primarily) the United States' submarine force.

This gentleman, a retired admiral, is certainly admiring an old flame:

That night I went to an informal voice recital in which my son was singing. 
of the performers brought her son who really had a tough time with all the
German and French and Latin and Italian:

I was also able to visit my sister who is institutionalized near Devon, PA. 
was one of her more alert days.


And then we arrived back in California and I got to attempt to photograph a
niece and nephew. At ages 2 and 1 they are projectiles with a mean free path 
about 4 feet before collisions and an average velocity just below Mach 1. A
challenge to shoot with an M6!

Your critique most welcome.
