View Full Version : An Air ‘Journal’ in Images * Sixth (& Final) Set – 2nd s/s *
01-03-2002, 01:01 PM
Here are likely the last SS’s I’ll share in this Forum, save the chance I may at some point get one or two which just strike me as so “exceptional” they just should be shared with others…
The 2nd and final part of this last set…
I hope someone may enjoy these…
As previously stated *
All these shots are over Helsinki, Finland – Christmas eve’, 2001.
All are originals and untouched, having only been resized…
Helsinki * Air Journal, Set VI – 2nd (&nd final) sub-set
My thanks again to everyone who has ever commented on any of my shots here – the many of your kind remarks for which I’ve always been genuinely grateful …
I wish each and all unnumbered joyous flights in your favorite birds, and always safe-landings…
My very best regards to all – :-wave

You kind of saved the best for the last... beautiful lighting effects... superb frame... nice helo... what can we want more? ...That you don't leave this forum (pppleaaase :-hmmm )
You will probably have good reasons why you cannot join us here anymore, it's sad to know that one of the best won't be around anymore...
We'll miss you Tia! :'(
Take care & God bless!!

Dx92300 &nd Cozzy,
Ahhwwww! You guys! ;-)
Thanks, that’s so sweet…
First, let me say – I’m not leaving. I’ll still be here, around…
Sort of “hovering” – like my helo's… ;-)
Over the past week + I’ve sort of been getting some emails and subtle “hints” it’d be nice if I found “somewhere else to be.”
So – I’ve been thinking about it for a little while.
Last thing in the world I want to do here is ruin the experience of this forum for anyone – or, even detract from it’s simple pleasures at-all, in any-way…
Ya know? ..Why? I get nothing from that – just makes me feel badly.
It sort of seems maybe on the whole I have a “style” and approach to things that make some feel less than comfortable… &nd I don’t want that. I wouldn’t want that if this were my own forum, and it’s not – others are providing this to everyone free and openly for everyone’s enjoyment.
So I’ll just “chill” a while and let the forum carry-on as it would had I never found it…
Hey – that’s cool…
No worries and no earth-shattering woe to me… ;-)
“You kind of saved the best for the last... beautiful lighting effects... superb frame... nice helo... what can we want more?”
The impossible… Perfection.
You know what?
That last shot is my favorite… the best SS I’ve ever done – IMHO.
But for it’s one flaw and imperfection, it would be my “Captured Unicorn;” the SS I’ve been chasing all this time…
Once again, though – it’s been denied. I so regret that one flaw in the shot. I came so close to my “Unicorn” here – and missed it… :-shy
It’s heart-warming to me that you see this, too though – that I did, intentionally save the “best for the last.” I did. In my view, too – I did.
Thank you so much for your always sweet and thoughtful comments – they are so much appreciated. :-)
As are you-yourself.
Keep taking those shots and sharing them, please – I look forward to each new one shown & shared…
&nd please get well soon..! :-)
All the very best to you, as always – :-wave

LAST EDITED ON Jan-03-02 AT 03:36PM (EDT)[p]Hi Tia!!
Just read you reply and to be honest... it makes me feel uncomfortable to know that apparently there are people who'd rather express their feelings about "your" way of posting messages by email than instead doing that in public - just like this forum is meant to be! Even more... doesn't everyone has his/her own way of posting SS??? You like the combination of aircraft with delightfull lighting and eye for perfection - I like posting VFR screenies with nice views - others like warbirds... I mean... if these people who contact you because they don't like your approach read this post : I got them THE sollution : Never, ever open another post of Ikarusina again and let this warm person be who she is... let her share the things she want with those who are interested... and for all the others: skip these posts!
Tia knowing you'll be hangin' around makes me feel a bit less sad because no-one - not even in cyber world - has the right to dictate what can and cannot in an open free community!
Always keeping y'r head up and nose in the wind and watch your a(l)t(t)itude!
Lots of greetings and we'll meet again!!
01-03-2002, 03:36 PM
Once again TIA you struck back with more amazing shots. Keep sending in more of those great shots Tia. Once again nice shots
01-03-2002, 03:48 PM
LAST EDITED ON Jan-03-02 AT 03:51PM (EDT)[p]Tia,
I cannot imagine why anyone would suggest that you stop posting here. Your screen shots and comments will be saddly missed. I hope you reconsider.
Edit: These shots, as always, are fantastic. Thanks for ALL the screen shots you've posted. You truly know how to capture FS2K2 in all it's greatness!
01-03-2002, 03:52 PM
Lovely shots Tia,
Are they the default clouds or some of Chris' Add On Clouds. Those clouds look petty good and really look as if there is rain falling out of them in places. I'm trying to find a good set to use and so far I am rather disappointed....any recommendations :-) ?
01-03-2002, 04:04 PM
I'm not really replying to my own post :-) but I've only just read your previous text. I'm very sorry to hear that you are getting unwelcome e-mail...I'm sure you know this, but in Outlook Express (with the offending message highlighted) you can click Message at the top and then in the drop down list just click "Block Sender". It prevents anything coming in from from that source again and also deletes that message. I call it my "Twit Filter" and find it very useful :-roll
Please don't go away...I and many others enjoy your lovely posts :-)
01-03-2002, 04:43 PM
Yes, I agree - don't let a few arsewipes ruin it for ya. I learned that at avsin. Of course, not having opinions in the popular majority, I got kicked off of avsin's forums...

Ditto what everyone else has been saying. I look forward to seeing your screen shots on the forum. Please ignore the naysayers and keep coming back with more images.
As one of our fellow "simmers" mentioned above, we each have different reasons for taking screen shots. I tend to use them as a way to critique my own landings. You use them as a way to tell a story. Others have different approaches, but the bottom line is that we all like aviation (a lot--my wife still thinks I'm crazy). All of the reasons are valid and if some people don't like it, they should move on. As you can see from the comments above, we like to see your screenshots.
01-03-2002, 05:14 PM
LAST EDITED ON Jan-03-02 AT 05:15PM (EDT)[p]Now who the hell would be so rude? Let them complain here where we can all see their comments...and be open to ours. Don't give in to the lowest common 'you know what'. And I don't mean denominator...
Keep posting as is your right as a registered member until a SYSOP tells you otherwise...the "twits", as Peter McLeland would say, can shut up and sit down. They don't run this forum.
01-03-2002, 05:40 PM
i don.t post any pictures here, never have and never will, but I come here to see your postings , and petermclelands postings , and several others. I enjoy your storys as well as the outstanding pictures you take.
If you leave it will take away a lot of fun and pleasure that a very many of us get from your imagination and craftmanship.
01-04-2002, 12:04 AM
Thanks everyone! For once I really just don’t know anything to say … except – thanks so much!
Wow… I really appreciate everyone’s thoughtful reflections and ...sentiments expressed here…
I’ve read what you’ve all said several times and – foo! ..have to admit that all makes good sense…
I should say, though – that no-one has ever said anything “mean” or really negative to me… just, gentle, subtle hints and suggestions – some referring to what the forum was before I came… with a real emphasis on it’s once having been better.
Cozzy sure makes sense though – I guess those who don’t care for me, or my “style of posts,” etc, could just maybe not load them!
How hard can that be? :-)
I just kind’a figured everyone’s entitled to express their views – including the ones that may not be particularly favorable to me…
I’ve read all the mails and all – and … I don’t know… I just really don’t.
I do know I like this forum an awful lot, though … &nd even if not posting any more pics and writing much of anything, I’d still be coming here to read and view SS’s.
Gosh, you all are so nice! I swear…
I’m really tired right now – I’ll give this a good bit more thought tomorrow.
I was just going to go back to flying some and enjoy the sim without troubling with SS’s …
So – tonight, I got myself all prepped in my United 744 to fly out of Moscow for Tehran and guess what?
Wound up taking some SS’s! Oh boy …
I Had to though – just to document how totally stupid I am and can be…
&nd my first thought when I took them was – “Oh, I should post these!”
Then I started remembering – “Oh yeah… said I wasn't going to do that…”
* sigh *
Anyway – I do have two shots I’d like to show everyone anyway – ‘cause, Jiminy! I’m an idiot!
I spent almost three days “stuck” in Moscow… And I kept thinkin’ – “This stinks! I can’t believe MS made ALL those European cities and didn’t even put so-much as the Kremlin in Moscow!”
&nd I was, admittedly, a little miffed at MS for that…
So, tonight – I take off heading out to Tehran, right?
I’m passing 8,000 ft. headed for FL400, look down and what do I see? Yeah! The freaking Kremlin!
Has anyone else seen it?
I’m imagining everyone who has a copy of FS2K2 knows it’s there and has seen it but me…
I am such a stooge!
But I want to show these two pics of the Kremlin, it’s just so cool! :-)
&nd it’s Why I went to Moscow in the first place – hoping to see at-least the Kremlin…
So… against my earlier word (again) – and feeling better about it thanks to all of you who’ve expressed your support for my continued being here anyway…
Please have a look! :-)
Hope if anyone hasn’t seen this as yet, you’ll like these shots – or even if you have seen it already.
Poo! I’m so tired I don’t even know what I’m blabbering anymore …
- but here they are… :-)
Hope you’ll like these… I’m so happy I found it – even if I did do it the ‘dingbat’ way…
( * Say… What’s with all the dreary weather in Europe these days? ;-) ..It was still raining cats & dogs when I found the Kremlin… * )
* Kremlin * Moscow, Russia – 3 January, ’02 *
That’s what I get for being ignorant… :-shy
I flew into -and- was flying out-of, Moscow’s Sheremetyevo (UUEE) – and never even knew there was a Vnukovo (UUWW) - (I didn't think that was actually in Moscow :-roll ).
For anyone who’s not yet been to Moscow who’d like to go see the Kremlin and “Red Square,” etc… You’ll have an easier time of it (Moscow is H U G E!!!) – by flying directly into the Vnukovo Airport - (UUWW).
Vnukovo puts you quite near ‘Red Square.’
Anyway – thanks again so much everyone who’s expressed your view and sentiments here – I really do take them all to heart and will think about this all more tomorrow…
As always – my very best regards to each one and all…
- Tia :-wave
01-04-2002, 12:13 AM
Hi Peter, :-)
Thanks so much for the kind thoughts and words…
Yes, would you believe it? They are actually the default clouds.
I’ve thus-far stayed with the default clouds and water textures, having felt both are quite nice from the first I loaded 2K2.
I’d be lying if I said I’d never been tempted to try replacements for either – especially the clouds – but… I just haven’t.
I think in no-small part it goes to my stubbornness. I’ve really wanted to see how much I can get out of FS2K2 without “modifying” it…
I know, that probably really sounds dumb – especially to the veteran FS’ers – I’m not even really sure why I think that way myself.
I have found though that, there seems to be an almost infinite number of possibilities for the clouds and, if one is patient and determined enough, you can almost “mold” them to your exact specifications…
The five variables I’ve found operant so far which affect the (default) clouds are *
a) Lighting(?) (-or- perhaps, the clock – the time of day? I’ve no clue whether “Season” has any bearing).
..& the more-obvious ones -
c) Cloud Type
d) Cloud Coverage
Through all the various possible mixtures and combinations of these variables, one can actually generate some pretty amazing and “realistic”-looking clouds – I think…
I’ve also come to the conclusion that, so-long as one’s System can “afford” it to you – if you want the best looking and most malleable clouds, it’s really best to leave “Density” set to 100%.
Even set to 100%, one still gets those periodic ones which have some real translucency… (e.g. as can be seen in the second and second to-last shots here in this thread: 2nd s/s).
Combined with the much darker and fuller (heavier) clouds which are more opaque – all the other variable-settings * Type, Coverage and Deviation * ..can all be manipulated for a pretty broad-array of possible cloud types and forms…
I know this isn’t quite what you’ve asked and is, I’m sure more than you probably want to hear, but … :-)
I’m just trying to pass along what I’ve found to be true for myself whatever it may be worth or worthless to you or anyone else with the interest.
At-least with the “default” clouds, it does seem to me that above 8,000 ft. the “Stratus” cloud ‘type’ lend the most-consistently realistic look and feel.
1,000 to 10,000 ft. the “Cumulus” ‘type’ seem to work better and may be marginally more “malleable.”
Hope this makes at-least a little sense! :-)
Obviously I don’t know whether anyone else has or will find these points to be true for him/her-self – but they have proven to be so for me…
I’m sorry this is about all I have to offer, Peter – I really have no replacement texture recommendations… :-shy ..as I’ve never even tried any.
I’d really like to see some good SS’s of Chris’s replacement clouds though – if you or anyone else might wish and be able to do that… That would be great! - &nd of course much-appreciated.
Thanks so-much again for your thoughts shared here, Peter… means a lot to me to hear and to know you and the others feel this way.
All the very best to you, as ever –
01-04-2002, 12:25 AM
im fairly new to the forum but from my standpoint you are one of the best here with your posts. you've replied to my posts before and your shots are incredible. the bottom line is this is a screenshot forum and you do that well. if someone makes a comment about something you say or post, who cares!! i think you can see by the responses here you are more than welcome. in a goofy way the forum is a kind of family and there are bound to be petty arguments and comments made but all of us come back to the same thing. we all love flight simming. i think you should keep the posts coming.
01-04-2002, 02:03 AM
The votes seem to be in, and all seem to be in agreement with my earlier encouragements. Don't sweat the small stuff, do as you feel free to do, continue to have fun doing what you enjoy and ignore the 'pesky little ones'. They'll go away,..if they don't, send them to us to munch on!
Talk at you later! :)
Bob 'Wolf' Hayes
I Seeee Youuuuu!
01-04-2002, 08:04 AM
Thank you for the cloud information Tia....that has convinced me :-roll
I'm going back to the default clouds...I have not been satisfied with the look of the replacement clouds that I have been using. I like to use real weather provided by FSMeteo and FSUIPC and have been getting some less than spectacular results...sometimes very unrealistic. I'll change back now and give them a longer trial.
Thanks again :-)
01-04-2002, 09:25 AM
LAST EDITED ON Jan-04-02 AT 09:25AM (EDT)[p]Tia,
I think what can be said has been said here already... :-) Whatever "subtle hints" you have been getting, and whether or not those who said those things even intended to give those signals, or where even aware that they did, or had those thoughts to begin with, I think it is rather clear what the people in general think... :-) And who thinks it, if you see what I mean... ;-)
As for the shots, ...they don't need any comments... I'll just sit here and enjoy them for a while... *sighing happily*
They are only to be viewed, and felt ; the kind of shots where you just let them load, sit back, and enjoy... For once without looking for where the light is, or "how did she do that..." :-lol
As for the last one, (heck, it wasn't your last, not even your latest! :-lol ), I don't think it would be improved if it was altered in any way. And I honestly mean that! If you had caught the unicorn Tia... where would you put it? ;-) And what would you do then; take up knitting? :-lol
It is still out there Tia, go catch it... And, if you wish so, please take us along on the hunt! :-)
Tia, for lack of other words, good job... ;-)
All the very best, as usual and always,
01-04-2002, 10:04 AM
Great to hear that you have changed your mind.
St Basil's Cathedral looks pretty realistic. I had the opportunity to visit Moscow in 1994, so I can say this from first hand knowledge. There is also third airport in the Moscow region that might give you a good launching point--it's called (my spelling might be off here) Domodedovo. Roughly pronounced "Domadyedava" (accent on the "dye" syllable).
01-04-2002, 03:33 PM
Hi Bob … LoL :-lol
..Sorry – I’m still laughing at that…
“..to munch on?” :-lol Ouchies!
That’s sure sweet though, and I appreciate it a lot in all seriousness.
I s’pose I might get by just doin’ my little hand-flip thing and sayin’ – “..talk to the hand! ..’'‘cuz the elbow don’t even understand!” ;-)
..Golly, least that way no one gets hurt on my account, too! :-)
Kind’a gets me picturing you guys givin’ ‘em the “green stick” business…
..Eeewwwww! That’ so-gross!
( Funny though… ) :-lol
I’m actually trying to get caught up on some house work here today, but hoping to get you a letter off before the day’s done!
Thanks bunches again, Bob…
Listen at ya soon! ;-)
01-04-2002, 03:45 PM
Hi Peter… :-)
You’re oh-so-welcome… My pleasure! :-)
Not sure whether anything I said in that might really be helpful at-all, but – you’re still welcome…
Somehow! :-roll ..I managed to leave off one of the most critically-important variables when I wrote that last night (phooey I was tired!).
I’m sure it’s one you know all-too-well and have ‘employed’ to good ends yourself many, many times, but – for sake of anyone else who may be interested reading these thoughts and, just so not to leave out one of the most vital ones…
There really is a sixth variable element (factor) which can and invariably does play a Huge role in how one’s clouds will appear once you’ve chosen and set your parameters for them – (Type, Coverage, Density).
The sixth is simply – altitude: most-particularly – the Altitude Differential.
What I mean here is – the distance set between “Cloud Tops” and “Cloud Base.”
This is the one that affects the clouds’ depth – quite obviously; but there are also some other peculiar affects I’ve noticed that become conditioned and affected by this setting too.
Again, I’m really persuaded by this point that keeping cloud “Density” set to 100% gives the best clouds – regardless of how you might further manipulate their variables.
The strange thing is – that the “depth” setting (Altitude Differential) – doesn’t just affect the relative distance between cloud tops and their base. At-least it hasn’t seemed so to me.
The “deeper” the space in this setting – the fuller, more “robust” ones clouds generally become. One may have to wait for the next “row” to auto-generate if changing already extant clouds in this way – in order to see the impact it has on the whole: but it can make “cloud-shaping” very interesting and adds a whole new dimension to what is possible…
Anyway – you are certainly welcome for my humble two bits – I should say!
I sure am lookin’ forward to seeing your next shots – with or without clouds, Peter… If they have clouds, I’ll be enjoying looking at them, too! :-)
All the best, as always… :-wave
01-04-2002, 03:46 PM
You hit the nail on the head for Tia,
If you had caught the unicorn Tia... where would you put it? And what would you do then; take up knitting?
This is 'Maslow's Hirarchy of Needs' at work...
If you finally fulfill your dream of climbing a high mountain,
Eventually, you will look for a higher one.

Hi Björn… :-)
Thanks bunches… :-)
You know, it’s possible… Truthfully, I really am hyper-sensitive… :-shy Not a good thing and it’s sure made life rougher this far …
I could have mistaken some things – but I’d have to be even more stupid than I’m often given to believe. &nd That’s not an easy thing to do! :-lol
I don’t even know who he/they are/were – and don’t really care now.
I’m just going to take everyone’s advice as-is and not sweat it…
Hey – don’t like my posts – please don’t load them … Shoot – not everyone’s entitled to my opinions..! ;-)
& as long as there are some good people here who get some enjoyment from my little contributions, too – I’m just going to keep having fun and do what I have been here…
If that bothers anyone – well… :-( ..sorry…
Maybe try not to let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya on the way out …
All that hurdy-durdy business aside… I’m glad you like these shots, too, Björn…
..Makes me happy. :-)
&nd I sure-enough thank you for saying so - & so-nicely, too…
“If you had caught the unicorn Tia... where would you put it? ;-) “
..Well… lol :-lol ..Not sure that’s the question… ;-)
It’s the capturing which counts – the Unicorn..? If I caught my Unicorn I’d have to let him go … :-)
That may require having to glimpse a “better” Unicorn on some far horizon…
“..what would you do then; take up knitting? :-lol “
Been there & done that – and already ruined the T-shirt!
Oh my, it’s so boring! ..I don’t want to go back to those days! :-lol
“It is still out there Tia, go catch it... And, if you wish so, please take us along on the hunt!”
..Well sir – I just will..! :-) ..Both!
Thanks again as always, Björn…
&nd the best to you -
PS. Is this a record number of smiley-to-word ratio post? :-)
01-04-2002, 03:56 PM
Hi Mark, :-)
Thanks! Reading your words when I woke today sure put a smile on my face, I can say …
That’s so nice of you!
It’d be pretty rough finding a way to think what everyone’s said here is just “wrong,” or mistaken … It all makes perfect sense to me so – as Bob says: why “sweat the small stuff?” ;-)
That is soooo-cool you’ve been able to see Moscow!
I’m totally jealous!
I’ve wanted to see Moscow and St. Petersburg for a very long time…
I sure hope I’ll be able to go through the Hermitage sometime in this lifetime…
I think MS did a pretty decent job on it, too… It’s very colorful and pretty, especially when it starts getting darker and the lights come on… Really pretty!
It’s just such gorgeous architecture… * sigh *
I’ve long said, thought, felt and believed – the Russian sense of beauty is 2nd only to the Greek.
(The French being a very close 3rd).
One has to really admire the Russian people, too, I think …
My grandfather was imprisoned by Stalin in the ‘Lubianka’ – (KGB prison) in Moscow not too far from St. Basil’s, and was there 6 months before receiving his eight year sentence to a Gulag in Siberia.
Maybe it has something to do with why I’d so love to go there… I just want to see Moscow myself …
Anyway – please pardon my little tangent and digression…
I most-appreciate your kind thoughts and remarks, Mark… :-)
PS. Thanks for the info. on the thrid Port, too! :-)
01-04-2002, 04:26 PM
Those are amazing shots!:-)
Thanks for posting them. I love the moscow shots, they are fantastic!
Especially the rain (i think it is rain, not snow?) looks great.
But all other ones are great, too, of course. I like the clouds, the moon, the sunset... all. Simply perfect!:-)
I have to say, all your pictures are really great, not only at this thread.
Some of the best here in the forum.
Kind regards, :-)

LAST EDITED ON Jan-04-02 AT 04:37PM (EDT)[p]I used to fly around Moscow in 2K, so I didn't have many problems finding the city from UUEE (It's the big grey area on the top down view), but it took me time to find the Kremlin (The reason I went there too!) for a different reason - unless you fiddle around in slew mode for a while, in my 2K2, IT'S UNDERGROUND!!!!!
Oshkosh isn't, though, so now I can fly into my place of birth again, which I haven't been able to do since FS95 (I actually got a copy of '98 after I got 2000 (Yes, I had 95 only up to October 2000! So I'm poor!)...I decided to see how it works, and now I use 98 for fooling around with high scenery density in Mustangs - I have a lowly processor and a really crappy video card, and no money!).
Either way, even though my processor is crappy, I still get good performance from 2K2. I love it.
By the way - I'd love to see your 747 shots!!!

I have never posted a screenshot here before, but i have been looking for a long while. Since you came into this forum the quality of the shots have increased greatly. Your shots are beautiful, and I can't imagine how someone could possibly say anything negative about them, or you. You always have the nicest things to say about others, and I feel it would be a great loss to no longer have you in the forum.
01-04-2002, 05:03 PM
LAST EDITED ON Jan-04-02 AT 05:06PM (EDT)[p]Yes, I absolutely agree with Casey! :-)
Your shots are really great, Tia! :-)
Would be sad to have you not longer in this forum...:-(
01-04-2002, 06:39 PM
..So true, Bob! :-)
01-04-2002, 06:45 PM
Hi Eric, :-)
Thanks for this following post, too (in addition to yours of yesterday here). Gives me the excuse to thank you a little more directly for your kind words.
I’ve said it before and sure I’ll say it many times again – I’m really not the sharpest crayon in the box! :-lol
I remember looking and looking for Moscow in FS2K and just never did convince myself I’d found it…
Underground Kremlin? :-lol ..shoot! No wonder it was hard to find! Grrr! Gee! ..thanks MS!
“..I have a lowly processor and a really crappy video card, and no money!…”
Ya know – as me and my friends tell each other – “got’a work what ya got sugar!” ;-)
I’ve seen some of your shots and – hey… what’s wrong with them? They always look cool to me!
Dang man – not everyone can have the best, fastest, latest stuff out there … So what?
Ya know what makes all this so great and so fun isn’t the hardware in a box – it’s the people and the passion that bring it all to life … That’s my opinion anyway…
I still remember when I first saw you come into this forum - :-lol ..I think I laughed for three days at your sig. image…
Oh my! Too funny! And how fitting!
It said something then like: “Proud to have been banned from Avsim.com!”
Oh my – I laughed pretty hard… ya know the watery-eyes kind’a laugh …
The reason why – shoot, I’ve been banned from a few forums myself … and know the feeling all too-well… that’s hilarious.
I would read your sig. and just think – Good For You, Eric! – you go boy!”
I’ve been banned from a couple forums just for expressing my opinion too – and, to make it ten times the comedy, they were “philosophy” forums… hahahaha! How funny is that? ;-)
It’s pathetic… & one of them, I would have gladly worn a “Proud to have been banned by --- “ sig. image …
Stupid peckerwads… I don’t think they’d know Nietzsche from Ned Flanders, or Siddartha-Buddha if he kicked ‘em in the backside…
“..I'd love to see your 747 shots!!!”
Thanks for saying, so, too … You’ll be in luck then, since I've already started sketching out a plan for a multi-part 'Gallery' of 747 images…
They’ll be somewhere here soon I think … ;-)
Thanks again for the kind words, Eric – and all the best to you …

Thanks, so much, Mario… :-)
Bless your heart, you always have the sweetest things to say for everyone… :-)
Not trying to make you blush or feel badly – not at-all! ..but every time I see “737Pilot” I know I’m going to read something really nice… and every time I see “Mario” – I can’t help but think – “..O’ there’s that little sweetie again!” :-)
I did get a little giggle from your liking the Moscow shots… but only because I really don’t! :-lol
I swear… I’ve never taken, processed and uploaded any SS’s that fast in my life… lol :-lol
I could have thrown my hands in the air like a rodeo-jock when I was done… :-)
I’m glad you like these shots, too, though – and so-appreciate your comments as always …
All the best to you, Mario…

Hi Casey, :-)
That’s just so nice that someone who doesn’t post shots and rarely if ever posts anything would take the time to say what you have here…
I really do appreciate that, Casey – thank you...
Kindest regards -
