Jeg fandt lige et sæt med de sjoveste dyr på Flickr.
I loved my old SLR camera, a Minolta Dynax 500si, for which I have two lenses, a 35-70 and a 70-210. But a year or two ago, I realised that I hardly ever used it, and that I had to go digital. Not knowing much about such cameras, I bought a Polaroid PDC 4350 (4.2 megapixels) because the spec looked good at the price. And it’s a good camera in many ways – it’s handy, and it takes good landscape photos. However, it takes ages from I press the button till it actually does anything, so it’s nearly useless for taking photos of people. 🙁
Buying a new camera soon is a bad idea at the moment – replacing kitchens is expensive! – but I’d like to start thinking about what to go for. In an ideal world, I’d love to be able to use my old lenses, and ever since Miriam and I had those photos taken for Idith’s birthday, I’ve wanted a camera with a shutter release cable badly! Would such a camera still cost a fortune?
Så er mine forældre (eller i hvert fald min mor) også kommet på Flickr. Mor har lagt et par pæne billeder op, men det krævede en del telefonassistance, så nu bliver det spændende at se, om de klarer at lægge flere op alene.
It seems Flickr has changed the layout – the pictures are now in two
columns, the sets are shown right instead of left, and there are fancy
pull-down menus. I guess it’s a change for the better – but it’ll
take a short while to get used to.
I just noticed that Sebastian has put up a photo set of toy animals on
Flickr – I find it rather thought-stimulating. Why are the
tigers walking away from the Panda – are they scared? What are
the polar bear and the ape kids doing – performing in a musical
on Broadway? Does the bison feel lonely?
