Why not hitch a ride in the kangaroo's pouch?   :D


Don't be silly, Eric. It would very difficult to get any sharp images from a kangaroo's pouch with the continuous jolting as it hopped along. It would be even worse than riding on an elelphant.  ;)

That's astounding, Ray.

A modern shutter that goes faster than the already impossibly fast 1/1000th of a second would resolve the problems commonly associated with pouch bounce; with the exception of mahouts, no civilized body rides elephants, Ray: they sit on top of them. Haven't you noticed that ladies inevitably ride side-saddle? (Here I think of horses, not bicycles, and elephants aren't even a fantasy on my distant horizon. However, I vaguely recall seeing a trailer for an event where one such person of a blue persuasion rides a pterodactyle, legs apart.) Even Gulliver might have found problems trying it (with elephants) in Lilliput, assuming everything was to scale as we know it. I think that scale was six inches, for better or for worse, whatever that six inches might be using as yardstick; they never did elucidate, as far as I can remember.

That's what I wrote, Rob. To quote myself:

Trying to catch me out, eh?  ;D

A fast shutter speed certainly helps. The problem is in achieving a reasonable DoF at a reasonably low ISO which provides good DR and low noise, whilst at the same time synchronising the release of the shutter to coincide with the desired composition which is continuously changing as the elephant lurches along.

The attached photo shows the positions of the elephant taxi driver (mahout) and the passengers.

If it pleases your eye and tickles your intellect every time you look at it, the answer is yes

Just came across a couple of happy snap iPhone pics taken a while ago which showed that I have hung my images in our home. There are two more not shown in these pics I just love them... and often see something new in them - just when I  least expect it.... having a cuppa....vaccuming...sharing with others something about the image. So ..Yes - I do hang my work in our home and am not only proud to do so.... but enjoy doing so. :-)

Fascinating, Juilie; you've done exactly as my son managed to do with his hot Scoobie, which is to photograph upside down. He swears he didn't stand on his head, but as he lives in Glasgow...

Julie,

As a long-time view camera user I now have to struggle to see how they'd look on the ground glass. Earlier was better for me. But these are nice once I turn my monitor upside down.   ;D

Remarkably nice pix from a cellphone; these handy devices are possibly going to become even greater threats to traditional cameras than we might currently believe. On top of which, they are so damned useful by dint of always (almost) being in the right place at the right time: where we happen to find ourselves.

I think there's a new revolution taking place under the blankets, one that'll affect far more than just point 'n' shoots.

Not quite ready to abandon my current cameras - Slobodan? - but who knows how the next generation of snappers may find themselves able to apply themselves to the art of snapping.

I totally agree Rob. I don't have the most regent or fancy iPhone ... but to be honest, I have taken some wonderful pics with it, and it is usually always with me for exactly that purpose... to take a photo rather than making a call or a text which I do very infrequently.

I also have it with me in a little zip compartment on my running water belt... and I have some wonderful sunset skies!!! No way would I be carrying any other sort of camera when I am running!!!

My work is ugly, it is for colletors or museums. Although I put some of it up to s'tew over' it for a time.

Pretty pix? Sure they can go up long tem. Or they can be rotated, no big deal.

I'm in the same boat. I bought mine because I had amassed a huge fortune number of 'credits' from the mobile 'phone company over the years and the actual purchase of the unit was about a third of the usual market price. I call almost nobody, and since the unit is nearly permanently off unless I want to snap something, few folks manage to make it through (who needs a secretary?) and annoy me. However, I feel it's an invaluable safety device when out in the car, and if I discover I have left home without it (the 'phone) I panic. These things come with the years; it's nice to feel I can call someone if I get a flat, or if I feel I'm about to pass out... Fortunately, the latter has only happend to me sitting in restaurants (cheap ones, so it's not that), but, whatever, it's good to feel I can inform someone if there's a crisis of sorts. Well, a mild one.
