WTF are they? I can't quite tell.
Look like moths
I think locusts. Moths don't crunch under your wheels.
Thought I'd share a little soccer world cup flavour.
Street vendor selling caps in SA colours
Most cars have small flags on them. This guy got serious.
Another street vendor selling flags.
Canadian soldiers are what we call these bigger ones, every year early spring or so we get smaller ones we call sand flies. But the last few years these been coming in. Here's link, they sure are some ugly things. And they show up right out of the blue, was outside last night no signs of them wake up this morning and place is covered.
Oh, mayflies. Don't have them over here in Western PA right now.
Never seen or heard of them. I wonder if my girlfriend has (from Texas).
is the Canon Ixus 130 any good?
looking in the 300$ range,
Maybe google for some more reviews.
2 quick questions
- that camera attachment/cap which you buy and attach to the lens so that the sun's rays don't refract and show up rainbow colours in the sky - what is it called in English? (English's not my native language so I don't know proper terminological jargon...)
- would such cap be fitting universally on all lenses or would I need to purchase one specifically to fit on my Olympus E-330?
Taken from my summer home on 6th June @ 17:40 on Olympus E-330:
Polarizing filter I beleive is what you're looking for, and they come in various sizes (diameters) so I think you will need one with the same diameter as the thread at the end of your lens.
Wot he said . .
BTW, nice photo. Almost got the hang of the law of thirds.
What is this thirds or two-thirds? I got a couple of pm's about it regarding photos I posted here but I can't fathom what's it all about
Same thing, this might help:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds
OHHHHHHHH I GET IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my camera has an option to show that grid from the wiki page you linked and i never new what it was for, untill now
Sunset from my porch
I think she is actually referring to a Lens Hood.
Possible. Well spotted sir.
I had some Tiger Lillies blooming in the front yard this morning.
Yes it's a lens hood (I googled the picture and that's it)
They're according to sizes.
My lens is a zuiko 14-45mm so I guess that means I have to buy a 45mm lens hood for it to fit?
No, the "14-45" refers to the focal length. You should measure the diameter of the lens(I think) and that will be the size you are looking for.
EDIT: Lens hood is specific to each lens, take a look at this:http://www.lenshoods.co.uk/
Seeing as this is a computing forum, thought I'd play with suitable subject matter.
It's a CM 120 LED fan.
Other than the 3rd pic, I used the flash stopped down to freeze the fan blades.

A Cannon 450D and Adobe Camera Raw are like having your own personal photo lab
LOL. One way of looking at it. In my case it's a Nikon D5000 and Nikon ViewNX.
Ya man, my brother just bought one of those a few weeks ago and is loving it. He had been using Adobe cs3 and his .NEF had to be converted. Once he got to play with cs5(and didn't have to convert anything), he was grabbin for the credit card.
