Nikon D90 Specifications Revealed

Here's a great laugh!

..."My Nikon contact tells me their R&D people are now working on a system that eliminates the photographer altogether. Nikon's customer research has discovered that when a photographer takes a great image, they claim all the credit. But when a photographer takes a bad image, they blame the camera.

By eliminating the photographer, Nikon plan to eliminate lousy photos altogether..."

The Anti-Football League
Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!

Silly season is upon us. Yes it's the end of the football season. This year there are posters all over town, banners, ads on TV, plus the usual mainstream guff in things like the newspapers. Maybe it's my imagination, but the in-ya-face component of the sport seems to be getting worse each year. This prompted me to think of an organisation from many years that used to even get a mention in the Herald Sun, the A.F.L, no not THAT A.F.L, the Anti Football League. Way back before I even picked up a camera, I knew of and admired this organisation. A quick 'google' this morning shows me that it has recently been revived. I am very pleased. I will be signing up straightaway.

I mean who can resist, with this sort of information..

Regardless of the criticism, badges were sold at an alarming rate and the inaugural Douglas Wilkie medal was awarded to then Prime Minister Harold Holt. By July 1967, less than two months after the AFL was conceived, it had more members than the Collingwood Football Club, the largest in the VFL

You should join too!

"The Commons"

A couple of days ago, The NYPL, joined the commons on flickr, one of the series of images they've added is from a body of work taken by a federal employee on Ellis Island, Looking at this work, and thinking about photography in "general" and in particular flickr, has anything changed, in the last 100 or so years?

When asked who a certain photograph was of, the owner replied,

"I have neither sister nor brother, but my mother's daughter is the man mother"

Who was in the photograph?

I will answer by e-mail to those who can't work it out.
