About Me

Thank you Democratic Underground for keeping me sane for the last four years. I think I was probably the longest lurker here. I started following DU during the Dubya administration. I was first attracted to the "Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week." I've been following along ever since. I always felt guilty for not participating, but refrained from doing so because I already spend way too much time online. However, after recent events, I just can't sit back any longer. I had to log on and thank you folks for all that you do. I'm a retired TV newscast director with forty years experience and more than eighteen thousand broadcasts under my belt, most of them live. I now travel the country (when I can) shooting landscape, astro and wildlife photography. You can see some of my photos at Ross-Kestin.Pixels.com or on Instagram at @oldguywithacamera. Thanks again! Ross K. Grumpy Old Guy

Griffith Park Observatory

For those of you who aren't familiar with Los Angeles, this is the Griffith Park Observatory, seen in the movies "Rebel Without A Cause" and "La La Land." I met up with some photographer friends in the predawn hours to get a shot of the observatory with the lights of Downtown L.A. in the distance. Unfortunately, the fog was not cooperating, and I managed to get just a few shots in before the city lights disappeared.

We just got back from Utah.

Here is a friendly Osprey.

For those who are interested, this was shot with a Canon R5, RF 100-500mm lens at 500mm, 1/3200sec, F/8, ISO 1600, full image stabilization, processed with Snapseed.

More pics to come soon.

I'm proud to announce a new addition to the family.

Daddy and lens are doing fine.
