    The British are coming!

    Or so at least it seems at Riley's Farm in Oak Glen.

    These were shot a few weeks ago when my original Digitial Rebel went on the blink, but these photos were shot with the Canonet QL17 GIII on Kodachrome 100 slide film and I just got them back yesterday.

    The lady in the red coat is actually one of our church members who works at the farm.

    I got scared there for a second as the 'guy' in the first shot has a red coat, too.
    She's much more attractive.
    Keep Shooting!


    Please refrain from editing my photos without asking.

    Especially as she's wearing a cloak, not a coat.
    Glad you mentioned the film, as I thought it had a "Kodachrome green" look to it.
    Especially in that first shot.

    Scroll down to the Sports Forum and post your sports pictures !

    I though only SPIES wore cloaks. You know, to hide their daggers...

    Paul, to an American, "coat" and "cloak" mean the same thing. In fact, the only time I can remember using the word cloak was to describe a cloak room which, as it turns out, is where we keep our coats...

    Nice portraits, I would not have included the stone in the foreground in the gents photo
