This unfortunately is how democracy is played out in real live. Now can we guess what Hilary's chance is given that she appears to be ultra capable (=b*** in people mind rightly or wrongly) We all have to agree whatever we think subconsciously is difficult to fathom. Can't believe that two people kissing could affect the election of the most powerful person on earth. But that could be true.

Heres is Best Try at a Candid Shot

This Shot is of the Riders of the CT Second Company Governors Horse Guard. This is Explains about the guard

"Chartered in 1808 "to attend and escort the Governor in times of peace and war", the Second Company Governor's Horse Guard continues to serve Connecticut as willingly today as it did during Colonial times. 2GHG is part of the organized militia of the State of Connecticut, under the direction of the Governor and the National Guard. Although today's Trooper most often rides in ceremonial functions, cavalry military training of horse and rider takes place throughout the year. "

Anyway, While there i was talking To the Press Officer. And long and Short, I am Now the Unofficial Photographer For the troop

Sorry Kjell,

maybe I can get some shots of the cold when i'm back in Canada.

Here are a couple of shots.

This one is in Cambodia in August 2007. Angkor Wat. Unbelievable place to visit.



And this is in Tobago, while we were driving aound. Does this count as a candid?

I took these last summer on the day before the big cultural festival in my city.

They're all with a Russian Jupiter-9 85mm f2 lens, I love the DOF on the first one.

I love your first one too. I have been eyeing some affordable (? never) 77mm or 85mm but to no avail. Thinking about getting some M42 adapter permanently stuck in my spare DL. That should be for all my future M42 lens. Meanwhile I make do with my cheapo portrait lens FA100mm or FA135mm. I get away with some footwork but the FOV & bokeh are all different.

Not a good example but at least it gives me an opportunity to show an image. This was taken with the DL and Sigma 24-135mm lens.

I think it is for a dress code violation, for short longs or long shorts.

Actually, he looks like a special Constable. Maybe speaking to hm about his bike on the footpath.

Hey we could start whole thread on "Caption this" or "What is it al about?" :G
