They're a bit big, but wouldn't be cool if they weren't :D

First, I need to find out what Dali was smoking, then I need to acquire it ^_^

Oh, and there was a Manga&Anime Festival :-p


Also, I need to refresh my calendar more often:

Met a weird old Japanese guy in the British Museum, the guy was wearing some weird straw hat, had a funny moustache, and was claiming to come from the moon ^_^ Recognised the Russian language and tried to say "I love you" in Russian. Funny guy :D

Your camera takes very nice shots, I really enjoyed looking at them! Wish I could visit London sometime... I'm visiting China next month though! (I know, not quite the same, lol).

It does take a while to load the pictures off of there though, but they do load. (If you ever are in the market for a server to host all your photos, I could reccomend a great site)

Smugmug (sp?) Yes? :)
Well, that place is not really a place for a gallery only, I use it to host lots of various stuff. It's got all the services like PHP and SQL tunred on and ready to use +FTP access.
A friend is offering me that, the connection speed is limited, but it serves it's purpose well. Besides, I don't host that many pictures in most cases, it's just that those ones didn't look half as good if resized any more ^_^

Yeah smugmug is what I was going to recommend, I heart them, just had my one year anniversary of being with them, lol.

I host like 5 million pictures so that was key for me. For other web purposes I can use the school's web hosting, but generally the thing I host is pictures and so I use smugmug. I do html code a lot, but mainly for other organizations.

I don't usually host many pictures, and there's no need for them to be hosted for more than a week or two, so there's no urgent need to find a different solution, but yeah, if anything, I know the link :)

Good stuff :)

Like i said it's only really practical if you like leaving them up (and being able to see full sizes in addition to smaller sizes) and need unlimited storage... otherwise for the casual here and there poster it's not really that important.

Anyway, what camera do you shoot with? Just curious.

Sony DSC-R1
Need more practice, second time I brough it out of the closet. Will have to get used to manually adjusting the white balance and flash level. A great improvement compared to my last camera :) This one turns on and focuses almost instantly (and accurately). Battery lasts, well, long, I think I could push it up to 500 images without a flash.
Previously I had to check evey picture on the display because the camera most likely focused on an object in the neighbour galaxy. Now I mostly check if someone blinked :D

That camera explains a LOT about the awesome quality of the shots. I shoot with a Canon Powershot Pro1 myself. Once I learned how to change white balance and exposure, and a ton of other settings... I never wanted to go back to a point and shoot camera again. Your camera is rather similar to mine (DSLR "like" but not actually one)

Gotta love these babies :)

I have mine set to only focus on a half press of the button... because I hate draining battery and having a camera that is focusing every 2 seconds... but that's just me.

I heart pictures and taking them :)

Мне 162 не нравиться, там автоматическиё баланс белого дал збой. Помещение вообще жутко жёлтое и светлое :)

И мне вообще 223, 214 и 204 нравяться :)
