Yes, I know our main focus as a group is Aviation Photography but (IMO) we're Photographers first who also happen to have a common interest.
In light of this, and if the Mods will allow, I'm starting this thread as a place to simply show off other photography that we may do.  Personally, I think it could be very educational.

As I am in the fall mood somewhat, here is a picture from a few years ago at a pond that is near my home in the Boston area.

Jay, thanks for starting this thread.  What's sad is that I just realized most of my shots since upgrading from a point-and-shoot to an SLR are either aviation-related or of my daughter.  There's a whole lot of the world I'm missing out on.

Awesome shots from the game - #35 in the set is especially good. 

Here's one from my point-and-shoot days.  It's my friend "Other Rob" (I met him through my long-time friend, also named Rob) at Bushmaster skatepark in Flagstaff.  The photo itself isn't all that impressive, but this shot still blows me away every time I look at it.  As you can see, it's raining.  The bank that Rob is over is fairly slick even when dry, so the rain made it ridiculously slippery.  On flat ground, a 360 kickflip (360 flip, Tre flip, whatever) is impressive - I've been skateboarding for 23 years and I still have never landed one.  Rob rolled up this slick bank, casually hucked a 360 flip, and rode away backwards, totally solid.  Not bad for a creaky-kneed, thirty-somethingish print shop worker.

One of my favorites is drag racing, I am supposed to be getting with a website to get media passes but they guy wants to to go to Vegas NASCAR race and the drag racing is in Phoenix the same weekend.  This is probably my once in a lifetime shot, not sharp but I like it.  I got one more shot after that of the fire being smaller and by the time I put the camera down, after 2 more shots the fire was out and the driver was OK.

I've always loved aviation photography, but I never really pursued it until I met Joe C. last December.  Before I really pursued aviation photography I did a lot of nature and landscape photography.  I still try to get out some and pursue this side of photography, I still have a real passion for it.  Here's a few of my favorite photos from my other photographer life.

Okay, sunset; Circa 2007, taken on Kaanapali Beach, Maui, Hawai'i.  My favorite for several reasons, not all of which are pictured in the photo:

I originally got into photography to share my travels with my parents after my wife joined the Air Force.
