    A few weeks ago, my high school sweetheart who recently came back into my life saw my guitars and went "That blue one, I'd love to take a picture of it against the bright blue sky seeing as how much a contrast it is."

    Turns out she's just as much into photography as I am in guitars. We had a bit of back and forth about whether or not you could take a really beautiful picture using the cheap auto zoom, auto focus digital cameras that are so ubiquitous these days.

    So to prove to her that you CAN, I took THIS picture.

    And she relented, proving once again that it's not the tool but the one who works that tool.

    That's a looker! Couldn't help but think of the colorful tulip fields you fly over during a landing at Schiphol airport Amsterdam:)

    Cool angle. It looks massive, like it could be several stories tall. ;)
    Nice guitar, too!

    Cool pic for sure. Well done.
    But more importantly, how are things going with your long lost lady? If I may ask.
    I remember your first post about you reconnecting.

    So, help me understand, and not to be too forward, she’s, umm, working your tool?

    Beautiful shot! It somehow reminds me of this one. (I actually have the album).

    My conclusion is that you shouldn't disagree with her even if you're right.

    The sky is pretty, but that Lake Placid Blue wins this contest in my opinion.

    Cool shot. I can take pretty good pictures even with a knock off cheaper galaxy. Sometimes it takes many tries but it's worth it. I too, really enjoy photography. I wish I had a good, or at least descent, camera. Maybe down the line.

    I was getting wound up to warn you something similar: don't go proving stuff to women. Pyrrhic victory is bad mojo.

    Cool picture. Better let her take you a better one, though, if she's still willing.

    It's very much a case of threading carefully, we have to get used to each other, 25 years is a lot of time.

    And I intend to keep those details private.

    As a painter I can attest that the sky is never really blue, but usually more of a violet colour, as in your picture.

    Modern camera phones have limitations, but you can do amazing things, especially when you get lucky.

    I took this the other day to try to capture the amazing colours on these humble little flowers. Looks good to me.

    And note the violet sky . . .
