Far be it for me to appear to be up with the latest toy – but here I am and here it is – and it’s all rather fun. Thanks Rae and thanks to Anna B. for the quote – it just seems to fit.

Stopping in Taupo for lunch today I notice the rather large ‘rustic’ and somewhat surreal sign for the Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic Exhibition. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to visit the exhibition which I understand was showing close by at the Taupo Great Lakes Centre.
Jo has had a rough time of late – and today wasn’t the greatest. Jo wants to pursue photography (with the rationed school time she has at her disposal) through her art. The 90X was retired in 2005 after a full life as a professional camera from new in 1999 or thereabouts. After some too-ingContinue reading “The Nikon F90X”

Michael Shaw’s BagNotes coverage of the Haitian earthquake and the politics of imagery in general is always thought provoking.

The Ethics Of Photo-Cropping
My favourite. From Mezza’s photostream on Flickr.
I’m sticking with the G10. If you’re looking for HD video in a compact you need to look elsewhere. Along with the Olympus OM1, the μ[mju:]-II (Stylus), perhaps the Nikon F70/F90 series and most certainly the Sony F828 a piece of equipment -a camera – to enjoy. Here are some thoughts in the G10 / G11 debate. Bill Lockheart has his say and of course we have dpreview.
I’ve mentioned BAGnewsNotes before and below – there is a link in my sidebar. Michael Shaw’s stream of consciousness on contemporary press and documentary photographs within the context of American politics is lively, fun and thought provoking.
Celebrity Photog Annie Leibovitz Could Lose Rights To Her Own Work Today Sad.
P.N.A.T. AND David Dunnico, David Dunnico’s Flikr stream. My take .. sort of.
Photo of a Dying Marine: The Larger View
We’re looking for exciting images from every continent, and from diverse points of view: documentary, fine art, photojournalism, street photography, poetic, personal, abstract and human.
Making a case for “photographic intelligence” is the purpose of this editorial. One of the clear changes in the digital era, is how intelligent photography has become.
New to me. Hellophoto – NZ Based Photography Forum.

The Canon G10 has it’s detractors yet is a joy to use. This cropped portion of the image below – actually the image taken directly afterwards from the same postion/POV – gives an idea of its potential. A photographer’s camera they say. On the NZ market somewhere in the $900.00 range. BTW, I love the lookContinue reading “Canon G10”

Size images to 1024×683 (e.g. from K20D) use OpenOffice Impress to make a slide show presentation. Save and upload. Embed using theContinue reading “Slideshare.org”
I have spent time over the past few days establishing links between both sites. Searching my archive should become as rich as searching here over time. Just shaping the archive into something that is simple and intuitive is a bit of a challenge. Hopefully the basics are there. WordPress 2.7 made it’s appearencce at 2PM this afternoon. The new dashboard is all is very flash and functional. As is usual with WordPress upgrades, particularly when familiar with all the bells and whistles, the improvements are a delight.
