    Have a look at these:

    After you've spent some time contemplating these snaps, does anyone still
    have the energy to whinge and whine about oversharpening, blown highlights,
    white balance, canon vs nikon etc. etc. ?

    Time to shut down the ole' PC, folks; charge up the batteries and get out
    there.

    Reason's Greetings Y'all

    Wow, nice work, Jeff - you sure get around! (((O:

    Actually, there are a couple there where I would criticise the
    photographer's choices but it is the season to be jolly, so I'll let
    them go.

    This time...

    PS, there's a little optical illusion on image 17 on this page - as you
    scroll it up, it appears to grow..


    OK, I'm easily amused.

    Don't count on it: if I know the bunch of trolls
    from pbase, someone will make a moronic remark...

    No need: all I gotta do is press the shutter,
    film needs no batteries! ;)

    And straight back at ya!

    Mr.T Guest

    I guess your camera is old enough to use selenium cells for the light meter
    too :)
    Most film camera's in the last 40 years have used batteries though.
    Or maybe you are still using one of those "high quality" fixed aperture,
    single shutter speed instamatic toys?
    Or using the guess and pray method?

    I don't need no steenkin lite me-tah!
    They do, but not for the shutter.
    Narh: that's Bret's speciality.
    Sorry, not religious. See, you gotta
    actually talk about photography to find
    out what I do. I know it's difficult for
    someone who hasn't actually ever taken a
    photo, but you can keep trying.

    Pahhhh....
    Who needs a steenkin' light meter?
    My 3F didn't have one.

    Speed-of-film-at-f/16 (bright sun)
    f/2.8 in full shade
    and guesstimation in between

    ....served me just fine for years.

    When I *did* graduate to an Olympus 35RC *with* a meter(!), it was still
    useful to know all that when the bloody-expensive battery went flat.

    Too dam' easy nowadays.

    Yeah - that's cool that one. Seen that effect before in some of my
    repetitive shots.

    Don't like *all* the shots on display, but golly I feel a bit humbled by the
    average skill and quality on show there. Some smart cookies.

    LOL! The wisest words I ever heard in this newsgroup!



    Yeah, I like that one. Most folks nowadays would only
    relate to the "Grease Monkey", which is a totally unrelated
    thing...

    Ah well, you have a great break with your family.
    I'm knocking off after lunch, we'll see how things pan out:
    in my cultural background we celebrate Xmas Eve night, not the
    day. But only after 7pm, so between now and then I gotta find
    somewhere to hide outside the house: her indoors will be a nervous
    wreck with the preps and I know I'll just get in the way...
