Your wife looks very sweet and supportive.  Her body language indicates she's very protective of you as well.  You are one lucky man!

Great picture,lovely wife! We are going on a cruise in August. It will be an international cruise. I am wondering how you spaced out your sinemet. Were you in different time zones? I am wondering if I get on each countries time zone as far as taking sinemet? Has anyone has this experience.? Thanks for any information

Hi SoCalGal,

I would stay on your own time zone taking your meds. keep your clock the same as home...don't change your body timing for your meds...I would think it would create chaos ...may be wrong...

Just a suggestion....when I travel across the international dateline or time zones I keep my watch set to my own time to keep me on the straight and narrow for something as important as your meds...

I know Texas Tom also does a lot of international traveling he too may suggest something different and helpful...

Have a great time!! Wish I was going too:))

Another picture from the cruise. This was "Dress in your favorite decade" night, and I was an 80's California surfer dude (in the blond wig and Hawaiian shirt). Wife was a hippy, and my daughter (above my wife) was a flapper with a fancy cigarette holder. We had a blast on that trip. Proof that you can have PD and still have fun!

Hi all;

I am still fairly new on this forum but feeling very much at home.  Because of my longstanding interest in photography, I wondered if some of the group was also photographically inclined, so I did a search and came up with this thread.  We have some very good photographers here!   And Michael .......  4x5 Crown Graphic!!??  Yowser!  That is some serious photo gear.   I loved your shot with the old trucks in the snow.  I can imagine all sorts of interesting shots around them.  

I started into photography seriously in the late 70's and still make pictures several days a week.  I would be interested in anyone's comments if you use Flickr - on there I am arnieb901 - and would love to see your work also.  I had not used Photobucket, so I plan to start an account and possibly post a photo or two here.  It looks like a good system for sharing photos here.

 

I was wondering what restrictions anyone has in your technique, gear, preferred places for pics, etc. due to Parkinson's and how you have compensated?  So far, I am virtually unrestricted but am more aware, and I know my tripod will become my best friend photographically.  I enjoy most types of photography but do mostly landscapes, and I enjoy travel, so I plan much of my trips around photo opportunities.  This year we had a week in southern England and another week in the Netherlands for our anniversary, and then spent a week roaming around Colorado in late September.

 

Arnie

Arnie... welcome to out group. If you already have a Flickr account, don't worry about a photobucket, as you can post images here directly from your Flickr acct. I only use the 4X5 & 2X3 Crowns out in the field. when I set the studio up here, I prefer to use my 4X5 Graphic view (on a Ries A100-2 tripod)...... although I do take it out in the field when I'm shooting anything architectural so my lines are straight.

Just went to my college buddies reunion at a friends house. These people hadn't seen me in 5 years. No one noticed any PD symptoms. (that's me with the black guitar in the middle)
