Photographers and Artists

Photos needed!

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

He didn't just do it once - he ran round in a loop several times, but I doubt if he noticed until the next day. And it won't have been as bad as several years ago, when he was clinging to the roof of our old Land Cruiser, and fell off when Joce accelerated too smartly. Sandy was very bruised, lacerated and stiff for the first few days of their holiday.

He's a great lad . He came down from Scotland on the overnight train intending to wear a white tux - but when he arrived he found that the person who borrowed it from him earlier had left it really grubby, so he bought the trousers and shirt in a couple of charity shops while on the way to the wedding. He's actually the quietest of the Trust brothers. One year, the parents had 3 sons all in plaster after the ski-ing holidiays.

Got a good maths degree very young, then refused a place to do a PhD in favour of working in the Alps a ski instructor. He's now an actuary, and still very fit...

I'm so out of touch these days, I don't know where to post pics. I'm not going to stir the dung by saying it was always obvious, even though I have always said it. I come back here after a long time away, and nothing has changed. Why don't you have a plethora of pics to choose from for the front page? Because you hide the submission opportunity deep in the bowels of the Photographers and Artists board.

Said it a long time ago, nobody listened, fitevver.

Good photo, thanks. We can definitely use it as a POTW if you can give us a caption to go with it, such as where and/or when.

That's a beaut, Mike. I can tell it wasn't taken here - our fence posts are round and still have the bark on.

Hi guys,
My turn to share a couple.

Otoño - Huelga Utrera

Vista desde el Yelmo

These are linked in from a picasa web album - the nice this is that you can set the size in the link itself as in the above example.

This is a test, so let me know if you have any problems accessing them.
There's loads more to see and do on British Expat— why not check out our home page?

Did I ever send you this?

Sorry the only other size I have is a thumbnail.

NOT a telephoto shot. I was using my old Canon AE-1 with a zoom lens at around 85mm

The AE-1 and the same zoom lens again, but in closeup mode. Long exposure with the last of the daylight. Gazania in an arid garden in Botswana.

Better late than never, Simon :oops: - I've just added "Vista desde El Yelmo" as this week's POTW:

Please let me know if you'd like the caption changed/expanded or a website link added. :)

Thanks Dave -

El Yelmo at 1,809m is not the highest but perhaps the most widely recognised peak in the Spanish Natural Park of the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas. The park, located in province of Jaen, Andalucia, is the largest protected space in Spain (209,920 Hectares).

Thanks, Simon. I missed the opening of Picasa Web. I've now pumped a few pics up. Kay & Dave, take a look at my son Nick's Andean sunset pic, taken on the plateau above Mendoza (one of several).

Or look at other pics on http://picasaweb.google.co.uk/michael.kingdomhockings
such as the close-up of a gazania in late evening light.
