    For the close ups I ditched the DSLR as I couldn't get any macro images (almost certainly my and not the camera's inabilities) and resorted to an old Nikon Coolpix 4500 4 Mpixel 4x zoom. I'm more than happy with the results and it was a darn sight easier to work with, as it had an idiot proof macro setting. I'm thinking that I might prefer to take this with me on the S. America 3 cups trip, rather than the much larger and cumbersome (TOM...cumbersome, not cumberful) DSLR and a couple of lenses.

    Kartcon,

    Welcome.

    Can I say how depressed I feel, having seen your first offerings!

    Firstly...how clean is your bike?
    That depressed me straight away.

    Secondly, flowers in bloom! That further rubbed salt into an already open wound.

    Finally, the coup de grasse...bloody good pics!

    I'm going to have to catch that damnable squirrel now and take it to the beauty salon, get it polished and add a flower to its hair, just to get something comparable to offer up.

    Welcome!!!!

    This is what my close up was of...



    an 1860 newspaper printers block of a high street where I used to live (It had changed, but not drastically by the time I lived there. I think the horse drawn carriage had moved!).

    I'm sure some of you will be able to tell me how they tranfered a photograph onto an etched copper plate, and I'd be fascinated to hear the process.

    So I guess my guess as more than a little off, eh? (thou I did get the "screen"part right.)

    I'm sure there are lots of countries that don't have any representatives, some countries wouldn't even have existed as countries...Bangladesh, Iraq, Israel. There may have been a Prussian or two shopping though.

    This is precisely what I was going to guess.

    If that's true Tom, it's awesomeful!

    Now there's a cumbersome word!

    Perhaps I'm confused. It would explain the queer looks I get when I request a thimblesome of brandy.

    Besides, cumberful is a perfectly cromulent word.
