The real reason to buy a "Big White" Canon lens
« on: June 20, 2013, 12:34:56 PM »
So I have been hand holding my 70-200 2.8 and thus the collar was just sitting on my desk...while processing some pictures I had a moment of inspiration as pictured :)

(PS crappy picture taken with iphone as I could not be bothered to get the SLR out of the boot of my car to snap this)

PPS, no comments about the cracked wall, that patio door frame was only installed last night.

You obviously didn't pay them to cleanup, there's bits of paint/wall all over the ground there :P

Seriously (only slightly), that's pretty funny. Thanks!

OK ok... "we" put the door in, clean up still on-going as will be making good around the new door today.

As for being a big-white myself, already am! (but it was a diet coke if that helps at all lol)

You should do a photo series. Go around to all the fast food joints and get a soda and put the cups in the ring and take a photo out front showing the establishment. No worse, and probably better, than most other 'modern art', whatever that really is.

My thoughts also.  A cool, original photo. Possible money-making opportunity.

Maybe after selling them the photos you can upgrade to a tripod with a 'spirit' level for other drinks

I have just worked out what you are talking about, turns out it is a temporary reptile vivarium. We are looking after a bearded dragon while the owners are out of the country and their usual one is built into their house...hence the cardboard one :)

Nice idea, I take the time and date stamp on this thread as my idea©  ;)

If you look, that tripod has a level and maybe its the effect of "other" drinks that lead me to both finding the concept funny and not bothering to use it ;)

Well I don't reckon I can afford a genuine Canon Lens Collar B(W) to hold my drinks, but pouring a spirit level or two sounds pretty good right about now!

Better lock your door and call your lawyer - Mayor Bloomberg's goon squad is about to arrest you for possession of an illegally large soft drink!
