Nice pictures, but does the subject matter of the dead/dying/downward-cast flowers reflect your recent mood? I really love the swan pix.

It reflects my mood to a degree, but they weren't taken with that intention.. I liked the look of the decaying chrysanthemums.

Just wondering. The photos were fine and I look forward to seeing more from you. Congrats on your new 'toy.' ;o)

If you have a chance, hop on over to my journal. I recently posted a pic I took some time ago with my Canon EOS 750 at our old house - some day-lilies in bloom.

Nice, your new camera has arrived! :)

I took a remarkably similar photo to your first one only last month, orange tungsten glow n'all.

That's beautiful and yes, very similar. Are those chrysanthemums, too?

Re: It's online, now.
Yeah, they're yellow chrysanthemums, well past their 'best before' date. For whatever reason, unless I have special guests, I tend to keep fresh flowers until they're almost mouldy.

Not that it's important, I did write some text after the image, but lj appears to've eaten it up. Funny how it does that sometimes.

Very nice! Congratulations on your new toy! =)

The one with the river really struck me — the phone box [or whatever it is] is at an unusual angle that makes it hard to recognize, and its color and angle make a great contrast with the rest of the composition.

Thank you, I'm absolutely loving this camera. :)

I believe the red post contains a lifesaver, strangely there are no ladders out of the river (perhaps to keep people from swimming).. you can see the red posts continue down the river.

I love you pictures. The first one you have posted reminds me of myself. Art is to resemble life right? I feel very lively, very full of energy and yet I feel so dead at the moment. It described everything about my current emtions without actually describing anything. I love your work.

great pix
D-70's rule... I ordered one which turned out to be a scam. now I'm saving up money again to buy one because I bought a laptop instead... I'm still using my FM-2 and going broke developing film. stuff it, I should just put it on my credit card, but that would be irresponsible.

Re: great pix
thank you! :) I'm sorry to hear about the scam. It's taken nearly a year to decide on a SLR, but I'm loving the D70 so far. I think I made the right choice for my needs.

Yay! You got the camera... and it takes lovely shots (when it has you behind it, obviously). I've been dying for a new camera for ages, was hoping to get an EOS-10D, maybe now a 20D, but the D70 is also on the list of nice-to-owns. Except I can't see any way of affording it in the near (or even far) future. So I finally resigned myself and bought two new batteries for my Sony F505V (the two old ones I have now last about 2-5 minutes each after a charge). I must get around to putting more pics online...

I love that stretch of the river. My friends used to swim there during the summer holidays (my parents would never let me) and, yes, you're not really supposed to. Apart from the dangers of the lock, there used to be some signs up around there about rats & weil's disease. And someone from my school once had a very nasty accident (which I think I may have mentioned here before, and won't describe again because it makes it hard for me to sit down when I think about it) when jumping off the footbridge at Teddington Lock.

Keep them photos coming, and try not to worry about what's going on across the big pond (oh yeah, you asked for things to be optimistic about. How about: Clinton 2008?)

The D70 is amazing, far more camera than I'm qualified for at the moment, but I look forward to growing into it. :) There's no doubt that the 10D and 20D are excellent cameras, but I would have had to wait awhile longer for the 10D to become affordable for me and, well, I'm fed up of waiting. A new camera was long overdue for me and I'm glad I finally took the plunge.

Your Sony takes beautiful photos, though. I always admire them whenever you post photos of your family's adventures. Sony's colours are always so vivid too.

I remember you telling me the sad story of your friend. I still haven't had the urge to swim in the river, at least not where we are. When the London sewers flooded a few months ago there was a massive algae bloom and dead birds (not sure if there was a connection, but it wouldn't surprise me).

The rats are so bold! Sometimes when I'm walking down the river during a sunny midday a rat will scurry across the footpath, hardly bothered by the people. I havn't heard about weil's disease, what is it?

I wish I could be optimistic about Clinton 08', but the thought actually fills me with greater fear. The near rabid hate that Republicans and even many moderates have for her would kill any possible hope for the Democrats. I'm not sure why they hate her with such passion, though it may be as simple as her connection with Bill and the "strong woman" factor, sadly.

The Democrats need to come up with more charismatic candidates like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Charisma goes a long way in America.
