If you slowed the shutter down and closed the aperture a stop or two you may be able to get both the balloon and the flowers in sharp focus...

I used to know how to do all all that stuff when I had the old-fashioned manual SLR.  I have no idea how to override the "automatic".  ::)

I think slowing down the shutter would blur the flowers and maybe the balloon because they are not still objects - the wind is blowing.

New carriages on the london tube- the first in 50 years, yay!



Red-ish evening sky of south england



a few moments later



one hungry hour later :) homemade pizza!




The inside of the new tube car is bright .. I'd been thinking they were darker for some reason .. what are the small black barrier type things for ?

How long do you reckon the new ones will stay spiffy ?

Very lovely views of an almost Monet sky .. the sky has a gorgeous pallette at times

the pizza looks good .. saucy and cheesy the way it should be


pictures like yours of Botswana .. and free's photo of Namibia are awesome .. it's way cool to see bits of the world the way others look at them

cheers w8, I like your lasagna pic too, it looks delectable, do you do two layers of mince, one of cheese or how do you do it?
the barriers I think are supposed to be for disabled people to hold on to... the carriages are supposedly more accessible to disabled people, they've all but bridged the gap with the platform

as to how long they'll stay new and shiny... who knows? It might be a few months yet before yobs start scribbling things like "Jezza + Lizzy = LFE" on the windows :)

The barriers are for wheel chairs to fasten onto...I thought the British were famous for being civilized, not defacing public places, and having safe crime free towns and cities?

What does your hippie neighbor sell? Any other cool stuff going on around his pad? People that do weird stuff to their houses like that fascinate me.

When I get more time I'll put up some of the pics my wife has taken.

he goes to fairs and sells carved scuptures like at lumberjack shows of bears /eagles/ etc.  he does with chainsaws.. I was told he hasn't done anything inside (I don't "know" them personally) ... I was like a village nosey body asking people what the inside of his house looked like lol

It's alleged that John Lennon as a very young man would rob people on the street...

Goddamnit! >:(

Chaos, can you please administer Raymondo with a formal warning re: bringing up politics in a good natured, positive board thread!

Surely a formal reprimand in due?

Also, feel free to delete Raymondo's above post (post #35) a specious, spurious and sickeningly shambolic mess of which I felt both duty bound and obliged to rebut.

At no point was any offence intended. Thus I have deleted my post to adhere to your rules here.

As always, thank you Chaos for both your understanding and assistance on this matter!

The Hammer was used.

I encourage talk and questions about the pics being posted, but I discourage any kind of political debate in this thread, thanks.

GOOD PHOTOS ... Thanks!

Here are a few that I took that you might find to be of interest.

Each shot has sort of an interesting story behind it.
