New quarter, new thread. The last one was getting a bit long anyway. So far it's shaping-up to be a great summer:

Oops! I didn't see NZ's new thread posted 5 days ago and he didn't see this one posted over a week ago! Doesn't matter which one is used, I suppose, we can consolidate pics once one thread takes off.

LOL! Now how'd you guess that? Only pic 5 though, the other pics are taken at Seapoint and Dun Laoghaire, both in Co Dublin.

Looks an interesting place. Italian towns seem to be a mix of interesting architecture and being on the verge of falling down. At least they haven't gone for the glass fronts and concrete that blight most of our towns.

I've had a rough few months and haven't had the will or energy to take the camera out lately. That changed a week ago when I flew to Tampa Bay to visit a friend and see my SF Giants play the Rays. As always when visiting a new ballpark, I hiked up to the very top behind home plate to grab a shot.

No, it's just the regular EF 100 f2.8.

http://www.amazon.com/Canon-100mm-Ma...376075969&sr=8-2&keywords=100+f2.8

From all reviews it's as good as the LIS lens, but about 2/3 the price. I was either using flash or a high shutter speed so IS wasn't really needed. The last photo was at 1/400, f4.5, ISO400 in daylight, the middle bee was 1/160, f16, ISO100 with ring flash.

It was quite challenging because bees are never still and there was a slight breeze so the plants moved a bit. You don't realise that even small movements are huge at that scale.

Sorry to hear that dude. Nice ballpark shot though. God it's depressing seeing 3/4-empty stadiums.

Oh, gotcha. Actually that's the one that's on my wish list - I linked to the wrong one. I don't want to pay for IS either.

I hear ya. I take photos of moths and stuff with my 300 (Canon considers it to have a macro range....debatable, but anyway). Quite difficult.

Yeah, but I will say there was a lot more people at that game than I expected. In fact it looks more empty than it really was because of the fisheye capturing and putting a lot of emphasis on the seats at the very top which were empty. They block off sections at the very top and don't sell those seats because views are obstructed by the lighting structure hanging from the roof.

I was bummed I couldn't stay the whole weekend and see the other two games, even though the Giants lost those games. Sundays game was the second sellout of the season for the Rays, the first being Opening Day. Good to know the Giants can draw such a large crowd wherever they go!

Quoting vikkyvik (Reply 15):

No, we postponed that trip mostly because of the weather at the time. Too many clouds over the eastern deserts. I'll let you know when we figure out when we will try again, if you're interested.

For sure, and cities like Palermo and Naples also have a bit of an edge to them, which makes them all the more interesting. We could sure have taken some advice on preservation from them, but unfortunately it's too late now . . .

Some more film stuff, with a roll of Provia 100. Wasn't that impressed - thought my negative film shots came out better. But more experimentation is necessary. The DOF is just ridiculous with film, though!

Palermo is a superb town. We drove down to Sicily from London in 2011, and got the ferry from Palermo - Genova, so had a day in Palermo. We visited as many cathedrals as we could in one day, racing across, up down, all over the city in our (thankfully air conditioned) car. Very vibrant. Dirty buy characterful.

Nothing to do with film specifically, but the larger imaging area leads to a shallower DOF for equivalent view angle - same reason full-frame cameras have a shallower DOF (again, at equivalent view angle, rather than focal length).

Ah well, back to the real world after the sojourn en Bretagne. Sunny days (mainly) and nice beaches that weren't too busy, quiet countryside and empty roads.

Some holiday snaps.

Sun setting in Portsmouth, as seen from the ferry



Some of the Royal Navy

HMS Illustrious

The holiday house - a renovated ex-farmhouse

View from upstairs window. Trying to balance the flash with outside light got the better of me.



Cat that lived in another house catching some sun



The neighbour's donkey



Local town of Pontrieux. Very old centre with cobbled streets. Usually a lot more traffic.

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/oly720man/pontrieux2.jpg

Pontrieux used to be a rich town and one of the "getting ahead of the neighbours" signs of wealth was to have a wash house on the river - un Lavoir. The better the lavoir the greater the wealth.

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/oly720man/pontrieux3.jpg

There was a nice boat trip up and down the river to see the various wash houses and ever year there's a fete des lavoirs where they're celebrated.

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/oly720man/pontrieux5.jpg

The racing rally-cross circuit at Cohiniac. Just next door is a go carting circuit where my son played out his F1 dreams. He's still too young for the "grown up" (and faster) karts.

A path in the woods. Judging by the number of stone walls in the woods I think there used to be far fewer trees and they've only reappeared once farmers left.





Some nature photos

A crane (I think, or a heron) at the zoo in Tregomeur

I was moving to take a photo of this spider and a grasshopper jumped straight into its web and was promptly wrapped for lunch

Red Tide has arrived in San Diego this year so I went down to the beach to capture the bioluminescence in the water. Came home with one keeper.

Thank you! But you don't have to try very hard to take nice pics in a beautiful city like Toledo. They were all taken two weeks ago. One last dip into the folder:

Went up to shoot some sunset port shots last night. Ended up shooting a forest fire instead:

Just a word to compliment the picture takers. I know I enjoy them. Makes me dream of far off lands, which I will probably never get to see in person.
