    When Flickr tells me I have to sign in first, I know it'll be good.

    In other news, seriously considering a 7D.

    Yeah! I was looking at that and the 5D the other day. Good, meaty cameras those.

    But the one I really want is the Pentax 645D

    @William George-That is some serious Camera Porn!

    I went on a walk downtown this evening.

    I ordered myself a Holga camera for Mother's day, I'm looking forward to trying it out soon; I've seen people do some really cool stuff with them.

    @All photogs living nearish the ash cloud.

    Are you guys familiar with JMW Turner's paintings? They look like this:

    Art historians lauded his use of bold color, but guess what? The sky actually just looked that way when he was living due to a massive cloud of ash from a really fucking large volcanic explosion (Tambora, the internet tells me).

    SO! Take advantage of the awesome colors!!!

    thewaltonsare- the drippy paint one caught my eye, but the light through the windows held it. They're pictures of the light, little else, which is quite the superpower.

    Shooting with a 40+-year-old Leica M f2/35mm Summicron lens mounted on a Lumix GF1 digital body.

    I'm digging the results, even if the manual focus assist on the Lumix is a bit counterintuitive.

    manual focus assist
    Like, it automatically helps you focus... manually? This is something I must investigate further. Because it's making my brain hurt.

    ETA: Okay, now that I've looked it up it's much less confusing. And even interesting. Some good shots there, by the way, while wrangling with a new process.

    I'm starting to get into photographing the sky in the evenings because there are some great colours right now.

    This one was because of the shafts of light coming through the gap, unfortunately they don't come out quite as strongly as I could see them.

    This one is all about that ceiling of clouds above the match and the glow at the far end of it.
