I love this photo and I just had to share it.

BTW, Paul Graham's Arc rocks, but the anarki modifications rock even more...

Story of stuff

So firstly, please, please take the time to go and watch:

.. some of it everyone knows, but it's still worth understanding *all* of it.

Once that's given you the picture you need to get an idea of how it's going to get fixed. Here's a good source:

.. there you'll learn how the little fella pictured (A tardigrade, or "little water bear") is helping prevent killer diseases in Africa without using up the earths resources (amongst other things).

So, this weekend we found ourselves in the Thereisen fair ground looking for a new lens (long story - we ended up buying a dining table instead of a lens, such is life!). Whilst in this area of Munich, where Oktoberfest takes place, we got to see the young and trendy types and I realised that I was not as "down" with the young people as I imagined (I mean, can you even imagine me not being cool?).

So here is my attempt to reproduce the predominant style of dress amongst the young folk on that portion of Munich.

Clearly all men are jealous and all women will find this irresistable.

I thank you for you interest, but I am Nicole's sorry, better luck next time.

Guest appearance

Day234, originally uploaded by Tanzbar.

I made a guest appearance in Nic's day-shot the other day. We were sitting having drinks on our balcony for the first time.

Very nice. I was actually pulling this expression on purpose but I do look like I've got something way too hot in that mug :-)

They can only break my heart

They can only break my heart, originally uploaded by tealeg.

Probably my favorite shot so far at 800mm focal length. It takes a really sunny day to get the best out of my £30 combination of Tokina 80-200mm f4 zoom, clubman 2x converter (costing me another 2 stops), OM->4/3 adapter and an E410...but when it comes off it's nice to have all that zoom.. :-)
