    Nope. I didn't bring my laptop with me, which is why I can only post ones taken by my phone. The ones on my real camera will have to wait until I get home again.

    A couple of those pics are HDR, and most of them have some light editing using an app on my phone, largely having to do with contrast and exposure with occasional added vignetting.

    Minde's photos deserve their own thread.

    I have an app on my phone that does a 360/spherical capture, where I stand in one spot and slowly spin around (there might be an actual term for that, but I can't think of it). Anyway, that's a stitched-together and flattened image of it.

    I've done a few others like that, but that's the one that looks best flattened. The others all have weird things in them, like half of people because they moved partway through the capture. Apparently it's not acceptable (or effective) to yell "Everybody, stop! Freeze! Hold STILL until I finish!"

    Yup, literally paraphrasing one of the politicians where I am at: "it's not the first time I get a hard-on when standing before this chamber."

    Cool pic.

    "I've always wanted an EKG!" she excitedly exclaimed. She said she had also wished she could see the inside of a French hospital. Wish granted, my love, wish granted.

    My sister got severe, mysterious pain in her legs. She hadn't ever had it before and we didn't know what was going on. We suspected perhaps complications to an allergic reaction to some insect bites we both got in Rome. We asked some local-ish European friends, and concluded that seeing a doctor was the safest course of action. So we spent a day of our Paris trip in a university hospital. Not my favorite moments, but my sister did get what she considers the best souvenirs ever - all those test results, including that EKG.

    The French doctors were stumped; they couldn't narrow it down to anything. Now that we're home, my sister went into her own dr's office, and they've decided it's related to her Raynaud's, which has to do with circulation.

    I don't know what the story is, but the statue fascinated me. From what I could tell, it looked like the woman was chained up (her hidden ankles are manacled). The man appears to have just slain her captor. And now, with the help of a little baby, he is in the process of breaking her chains and setting her free. I liked it much better than so many of the other male-female depictions, where in a lot of them the woman is getting chased and/or subjected...

    Some from our "real" cameras, in Prague:

    Some of these could have gone in the pets thread, but it's a set so here you go.

    The other morning we had a lovely thick fog, so I took my camera on our visit to a park.

    I really vibe with Prague. Never been there but it feels as if I have been, many times, over the centuries. I have dreamt of it.

    When I try to take pictures in the fog with my phone, they just turn up blurry and as if everything is out of focus. You cannot recognize the fog at all. It's so different from what you see with your bear eye. And it's in situations like this where you clearly see the limitations of your tiny flat embedded lens, no matter if it's speced at 10+ MP or branded by Carl Zeiss, etc.

    The trees look gorgeous.
