Thanks for posting everybody. Hope we get some more. I'll be gone for the next week with our 8th grade class to Lugano, Switzerland. They rent a guest house on the lake, do some hiking as well as several other experiential learning activities. I went once before and am remembering the amount of energy these kids have! See you next week end! Again thanks for all the posts and look forward to seeing some more!

@Lyrics51
What are these experimental learning activities?

@jelpee
Nice shot - composition and light works here - I saw some films on TV about your hobby and know how much time and efford people put into this - to get as close to "the real thing" as possible.

@All
since people added pictures of their hobbies I decided to share two of my english poems to follow that "other than photography" idea a bit more. (Please be gentle - I am not a native speaker when it comes to english... - thanks)


IRELAND

Ireland, isle of green
the hills and the water
I have seen

the people I saw
the words I heard
the mem'ries I took with me
all this is in my heart

And may you die in Ireland
the poem said
so true these words
it made me cry to read

Ireland, isle of green
if you was a man I'd offer friendship
if you was a woman - love

Ireland, isle of green
I'm longing to embrace you again!

(in memory of the green isle which is really a place I'd like to be more often)

It all sways

weeping guitars
and murmured words

dark rhythms
older than the time itself

ancient questions
radiating from broken eyes

the blind man shares his wisdom
with whoever cares

sadly though not many seem
to listen nor they understand

all glasses half empty
too much cigars smoked

not enough sleep
for all the dreams you have

and you can't stop humming
while the tears fill your eyes

that's the way it feels
when the french blues

has touched your
heart and kissed
your soul

(I know that you can't really put that special feeling music gives you into words - but I at least tried)


Best regards,
Th.

P.S. keep it coming!

Th, they do some work with a compass, the lake, and then some older buildings in and around the area. Thanks for the poems. Sad, but nice!

Well, my hobby used to be http://ironduke7.tripod.com/until I got tired of working out-of-doors (no garage).

I do a little writing (nothing serious)but my major, fall and winter, hobby is community theatre. I act and direct as does my (award winning) wife. This year we both acted in Agatha Christie's "Witness for the Prosecution" (for which Annette won best performance by a female at the provincial drama festival). Theatre takes up to five evenings a week when we are near a production so there is little time for anything else (although each year, at least for the last four years, I have produced an album of images from the rehearsal process).

Here is a shot from rehearsal that was used by the local newspaper:

Skeet

Fishing (Bass, Striper, and the occaisional Walleye)

Private PilotSEL (Civil Air Patrol)


I bet most of you are naturally left-handed too.:-)

Hi, really nice stuff around.
Beside of my family (my wife, two girls), a self built house (everywhere something to work on), the garden (more my wifes job, but i have to help whenever she needs me) i do a lot of reading. almost everything from thriller, science fiction to science (physics, astronomy, geology, history).
And as i stopped smoking for about 3 months now, i try to loose some weight, which i gained since then, with running.

bye alex
