    Playing with a lens I borrowed, on my ride to work.

    Know Boulder well? Name the spot.

    The gloves don't appear to match either. I'm going to agree with Harrison Ford on this one and say it was the one armed man.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    shadow knows not.

    Leaving the hood.


    There is no real trick to hanging the camera, tying back the strap and using a self timer. It's a Nikon 8mm lens. On full frame or film camera, it has a 180 FOV over the whole frame.

    Are you setting the timer, hanging the camera around your neck, and riding steady until the click?

    amazing what a difference a few millimeters makes. a 10mm sigma lens on my camera looks considerably more narrow than your shots. though it's my favorite lens at the moment...

    If you upload a photo the little camera icon shows that there is a photo inside. If you remote link there is no indication....but

    1. I was redundant in putting it since I said photo in the subject.
    2. Not everyone knows what it means (e.g. you) so it's not that useful.

    I used to use it a lot when I posted more photos so people with dial-up could save clicking on the thread.

    Yes. Just south of Pearl. There is a nice cut through to 33rd street from Pearl. It's really exciting when a train is rolling through since you can almost reach out and touch it. Kinda scary actually. I'm sure I scare the hell out of the train engineers.
