Most of the photos I showed are on film. They were taken with my old Minolta X700. I scanned them - only the selfs I took with a digital camera. I had a Olympus C 4000 Zoom - I was pretty satisfied with the camera, even though it wasn't a DSLR.
Now I use the Canon 300D - I got them from my husband when he bought himself a newer DSLR.
I still prefer to take photos with an analog camera, I think there is much more 'soul' in a picture. I can't describe it better. It feels different. But of course, once you have a digital SLR it is cheaper... no development costs any longer, it's easier to try new things without thinking about that. I know some photographers who are able to take photos digitally, but they caught the analog feeling, that is my goal for the future...
PS - an no, things are not going okay, it is pretty hard... but as always, I keep going and going and going...
I tried to go in the chat but all that happened was my screen complained about not having the plugin but the system couldn't find a plug in for it? any clues?
Omega thinks you guys are her kittens and that it's time you learned to fend for yourselves! She's being a good mother cat, teaching you. You know how we kind of look down on animals and think how lucky we are to be human-I think it's really the other way round!
I just need to clarify my understanding of Canadian English!
To me a pan is something you put on top of a stove and bake is something that you do inside of a stove, in a cake tin. You see my quandary.
Do I take the mixture and put it all in a cake tin and put inside the stove or do I pour spoonfuls of it into a pan on top of the stove? Or maybe all of it on top of the stove, like an omelette? You see I intend to test this "cornbread" out, (come the weekend whether raining or not)
Hey, Dougie! Have you ever listened to Wait! Wait! Don't Tell Me? It's a news quiz program on NPR (National Public Radio)...of course that's national as in United States (we think we're the only nation, you know). I think you'd really like it. Go to http://npr.org and click on podcasts in the left column. Download and enjoy!
Hey Doug which are we suppose to see on this picture...u or the guitar???? haha Take good care of Lauries sledge. Get your honey do jobs done for her so she don't need to use it. haha I don't want to see it broken in case I need it for my pc...haha
LOL... I'm sorry that I'm sometimes soooo slow - and I love the description 'rubber lady' *g*...
Went to your pictures on picasa to have a look at what your 'significant other' does ;) ::sighs:: she's really very talented, and I adore her collages. Please tell her how much I like what she created.
And I think it is very nice of you to do the 'male thing' *g*
btw - here's the link to the stamp I mentioned - before and after ;) Hope the html code works...
What a nice way to get up on a Saturday morning and to read such a nice comment :) Yes, I love b/w ones, too. In many cases they 'work' better for me.
The website you mentioned is my homepage: http://www.gekko-graphics.de
Yes, you are right, I bought that stamp in Vancouver. Wow, you're carving rubber stamps? I envy you for such a talent. I'm a klutz when it comes to make craft things ;) The gekko stamp I used for that logo looks a little different. I worked with it in a graphic program. The tail of the gekko was 'round' - so I cut it (no it didn't hurt the gekko *g*) and placed it the other way so it wasn't curled any longer. So, maybe it was really the one you carved? Maybe I'll upload a print of the original stamp later. Gotta get my daughter home from rehab first - she's always at home for the weekends.
I love gekkos (I know they are normally spelled geckos - but I like it that way). I even used the stamp for a tattoo I got some years ago.
thanks so much for the link, the garden is fantastic. All the tiny little details that kept my eye. The mosaics, the self made table and the shelf made out of branches and stuff, instruments used to decorate... it's simply amazing. There was put so much love into all the things. She must have been a very, very special person. And I'm sure to have known her must be gift that will last forever. Thanks again for sharing this...
I started taking photos in 1994 when I went to the US for the first time. Hubby got me my first reflex camera. But I only took "snapshots". In January 2001 I joined a German photo community because I wanted to improve. I'm still not there where I want to be with my photos, but I'm on the way ;)
For me photography is a way to express my feelings, it's an outlet. My father was diagnosed with cancer in 2003. I took a lot of pictures during his illness. For me and for him it was very important to deal with all the emotions. He died last year, and I'm so glad for each and every photo I have of him...
Thanks again for your kind words ::hugs::
Doug I like this picture much better!! Ha ha At least you shouldn't have a headache now. Beautiful music is much better....And do keep that sledge hidden...maybe we won't need it on this new site...it will work much better then LI.com....lol
