#6. "RE: Cloudy Day Color Photography: Panama Canal"

Mel:

Thanks for your comments. Alwaus nice to hear from you. The two vantage points offered from the owner's suite are unmatched. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in getting unobstructed images. I was told that the upper decks were crowded four and five deep much of the time, with people pushing and shoving to get near the front rail.

I always get a kick out of the number of people taking pictures of objects hundreds of feet away with their cell phones and P/S cameras and firing the flash units. In the pre-digital P/S camera days, Kodak loved these people who were using the old Flash Cube technology with the mechanical igniter. How times and technology have changed.

There were on-shore authorities all over the place, smiling and waving as we passed through the locks at both ends. There were apparently no restrictions concerning photography. I have no idea if there is any form of inspection of the 40,000 ships from all over the world passing through the canal every year. I suspect it is largely a matter of trust. A terrorist event that disables the locks at either end of the canal would produce immediate and enormous political and financial problems on a global scale.

Your post in this thread appeared while I was composing my reply to Mathew, Mike and Mick, wherein I mentioned the WB encryption issue. Thanks for your input. I am probably becoming compulsive/obsessive over this issue ... but am curious enough to pursue it for a while longer.

Regards,
