I like the framing trees, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray - the people on the right show just how big this structure is!

A wonderful piece of architecture Tom
Tom Wilson: A fine monument, indeed, Chris.
It just shows to go-ya how we've come a long way...or not?!
Tom Wilson: Technically, yes; photographically, perhaps not smile

You must have a huge archive, Tom
Tom Wilson: I wish it was sufficiently organized to call it an archive, Lisl smile However, there's about 50,000 images on my discs and probably several thousand more on slides and prints from pre-digital days smile

A lot of verticals going on here. You must have memories of the memorial.
Tom Wilson: It takes me back, Louis!
Wonderfully framed with the trees Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.
My first SLR was a second hand ricoh which I bought in '73. I used it until it was stolen in 2000 or 2001.
Tom Wilson: They weren't the finest of cameras, but they were a pretty reliable workhorse. I sold mine to a colleague and bought my first Canon in about 1978 or so.
I think that, like yesterday's Tom, this would also look good in B&W. A grand dome here supported by smooth columns and Ionic capitals. The people give this a good sense of scale.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Chad - I'll try it in mono. I was really surprised at how tiny the people look - it certainly gets across how huge this structure is!
Who now own the makers of my first SLR a Pentax

Scanned well Tom
Tom Wilson: So they do - in effect Ricoh bought its way up-market!
A fine shot, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank.
That is a very good photo Tom and the scan isn't bad either.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian

It really holds up against new shots.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Hollie - I guess the scene is pretty much the same now as then.
