    Thanks for the compliments.

    I am not a professional. I asked for a camera for Christmas when I was 15 (back in 1985 - lol). Not knowing what I really wanted, my mom was going to get me a Canon SureShot (or similar). She called a friend while she was at Fedco (yes, THAT'S going to bring back memories for some Californians), and asked for a second opinion. Fortunately for me that friend talked her into getting me a Nikon N2000, a real SLR camera. I took pictures constantly and started going on parades with the high school band and drill team. One day, on the way back home from a weekend competition in San Diego, I was taking pictures and one of the girls called me PhotoMatt and the name just stuck. I started my own business during my Junior year. I went to all the parades for the year and the trip to Hawaii. At the end of the year I put together an album and sold pictures.

    I ended up selling my cameras back in the late 80's and did not have any camera at all until 2001. I was on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" and won $16,000. I used part of that money to buy another Nikon. This time it was a Nikon F5 - the top of the line Nikon film camera at that time. I used it a little, but not as much as I did in the 80's. I decided to try video, but I did not like it as much as photography. In April of this year, the price was finally right and I bought a Nikon D200, my first digital SLR camera. I instantly fell in love with it, and I have taken thousands and thousands of pictures with it. If you do a search for "Photomatt" you can see what I mean.

    I realize that was alot more info than you probably wanted, but that is the brief version of my story.

    Oh, and as for the pix on Main Street - I just leave the shutter open for 30 seconds and make the lens opening as small as possible. Anything that moves will disappear. In the pictures where you see more people, the shutter was open less time and the lens was open more.

    since disney did an animated version of the legend of sleepy hollow i would assume that is where the inspiration comes from. I believe it was released as the adventures of ichabod and mr toad but my memory isn't what it used to be.

    I think he might be "generic." I thought I saw somewhere that they tell the classic tale of the headless horseman at the Liberty Bell just before he rides....don't know if that's really the case, though.

    Great photos as always, Matt! :thumbup:
