Can anyone tell me what this is? It sunned itself for long enough for a couple of shots. It looks like it has been in the wars:

I found this growing wild in the station car park. I thought the 5DMkiii just about nailed the focus on this:

United Kingdom & Ireland / Re: Final rules for Olympics Spectators?

Nobody even looked at my camera or lenses. They just don't want you obstructing the views of other spectators...

Nobody paid a moments notice to my camera or lenses. The only time I was stopped was when I forgot I had a full bottle of water in my bag going through security. Once a soldier had satisfied himself that it was not explosive or poisonous by asking me to drink some, he let me through  ;D

Brilliant atmosphere, great fun. Eat your heart out Mitt Romney!

To get back to the photographs: I like them. I like the atmosphere they create. Who doesn't use exposure to create an effect they like. Good stuff!

EOS Bodies / Re: New Upgraders (to FF) - what is your experience
« on: July 20, 2012, 07:40:00 AM »
i went from a 40D to the 5D Mk3 and absolutely love it, the down side is the desire now to get a longer lens, as I was used to the 100-400 L & 70-200 F2.8 L on the 40D body with a 2x extender so I am missing reach that I had before, the biggest headache for me is that  I certainly dont use all of the camera potential and would love to find a 5D Mk3 training course in London or a pro to talk me through its versatility for the day...

Hey Scotty - if you find a course let me know as well! Failing which, if you want to explore using a 5Diii with another recent (very happy) purchaser, I would be delighted to find some time for a few hours of conversation and a photoshoot one weekday evening (I work just near Covent Garden).

The last really good Pentax cameras were the K and then the ME Super. But I am going back to 35mm film! I loved my ME Super, I then had a couple of truly awful Pentax autofocus SLRs and swore I would never go back.
