a nice random image to get you started:



i now have a FLICKR page too!


"why would a reviewer make the point of saying someone's *not* a genius? do you especially think i'm *not* a genius? you didn't even have to think about it, did you?"






"monkeys are superior to men in this: when a monkey looks into a mirror, he sees a monkey.”







"i am secretly afraid of animals.... i think it is because of the usness in their eyes, with the underlying not-usness which belies it, and is so tragic a reminder of the lost age when we human beings branched off and left them: left them to eternal inarticulateness and slavery. why? their eyes seem to ask us."







"we've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of shakespeare. thanks to the internet, we now know this is not true..."







african monkey proverb: "the day the monkey is destined to die, all the trees get slippery."







"i'll buy a bunch of monkeys, dress them up, and make them re-enact the civil war"

why is the box one so blurry?
i like the grave stone one.

25th May 2007, 09:27

thanks guys - i like the 70s colouring too.

bmal - its so blurry because i moved the camera. not on purpose yu understand.

25th May 2007, 11:19

so is it A bit of a long exposure then?
you could get some fun effects with that. :)

25th May 2007, 11:21

well, it was with that particular shot. the one in the previous post of the mannequin head was an exposure of about 10 seconds. hand-held too.

its quite a sophisticated camera - it has quite a range of shutter speeds (which are all automatic)

unfortunately, the largest aperture is something like f/8, which is shit, frankly.

25th May 2007, 11:24

so does it choose the shutter speed or are you able to do it as well, it does sound good, especially for £5

25th May 2007, 11:25

its all automatic - you just press the button.

it is a good deal for a fiver, but the film more than makes up for the cheapness of the camera - i'll not be taking it on holiday, thats for certain...
