Q: has anyone bought the leash and cuff quick connect straps wondering how they work in real life

A: Do you know?

January first, 2009 dawned with a gentle rainstorm in Belize, Central America.

The sound of the rain drops breaking against palm fronds, roofs and railings was soothing to hear and fascinating to watch. One simple drop makes one elegant splash - I love the little stress waves at the top of the bowl.

Simple and at the same time complex, the bursting splashes broke way too quickly for the eye to freeze - not so for my 60mm AF Micro Nikkor.

    Thanks Rob.....because of THIS photo, JPG is shutting down! I can't believe it......THIS shot had all the earmarks of a PUBLISHED shot, however, there was NO WAY that "they" could have let that happen, (especially since your very cool "Through the Window" shot was going to be PUBLISHED too! I'm crushed Rob...YOU have runied it for us all......poop! Thanks a lot......Signed, Rob's Mother

    If my son Rob were a better kid he would have written this "thank you" for your kind comments. As it is, he's a very naughty boy and would rather be out playing around taking pictures than writing this note. So for him I say "Thank you!" for liking his work.
