Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

[Newport, Rhode Island, July 20, 2011]

On my recent trip to New England, I stopped in Rhode Island to see some of my JPG friends, including Nancy and Roland Richard.

Nancy and Roland drove to my hotel, where they joined me for coffee and good conversation. It was a nice little reunion, as we had first met in Nashville last April.

While I was in Rhode Island, I drove to Newport and found the Inn at Castle Hill, which is located not too far from the famous mansions.

I wanted to see the Inn because Linda and I spent our 10th wedding anniversary there in 1981, and because I knew that Nancy loved the Inn, and had taken a number of photos there.

Nancy is undergoing knee replacement surgery on Tuesday, so Linda and I are dedicating this collage to her and sending her our well wishes for a full and speedy recovery!

THANK YOU for the spotlight, Winky!
