To celebrate my 25,000th post I'm showing several photos that I like a great deal. You'll notice that this mini-collection is dominated by photos of Barbara: my best friend, soulmate, muse, lover and wife. I've not included my favorite photo of her because it's not that good except for subject. You can see it here, though, standing on the foredeck of the MV Talita, relaxing between scuba dives: http://www.barbara-and-stu.com/plogger/index.php?level=picture&id=1750

2. One New York Plaza, at the southern tip of Manhattan, early one morning. this is across the street from whre I used to work before moving to midtown about three years ago. PanaC-Lux

Beautiful shots, all. I can see why you chose them. I hope you have the Namib desert shot framed and on the wall. It is stunning. And I particularly liked the shot of your wife with the meerkats, as one is looking at her while another is checking out her shoes. I suppose the follow-up shot would have shown him looking at his own feet and mentally measuring for size.

 

And congrats on posting 25,000. That is truly remarkable!

It seems like only yesterday it was your 10,000th...

 

Congratulations Stuart.

 

Are those the Leica binoculars that started it all hanging around Barbara's neck?

Congratulations Stuart.

 

That is quite an accomplishment. How you find the time to be Moderator, Photographer---occasionally, Mentor to those of us more "challenged" photographers--I'll never know.

 

Cheers!
