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"

Definitely a good thing to do in the rain... but rain is also good for providing an excuse to be super lazy and curl up on the sofa with a duvet and a good film!!

thanks guys :)

the brown-ish ones are from a few days ago, before the weekend. and yes, it is indeed a spiders web with rain drops on it.

the green ones are from a field close by, taken on a dog walk.

i love my super macro...

Looks like I need to get on the stick a bit here - I also have an a430 and I haven't managed anything near this good yet! But yeah - yay super macro!

30th May 2007, 18:41

Bloody hell... macrotastic! The entire series is fantastic. I especially like the 4th one; the way the dropet in the front of the shot is magnifying the striations of the grass.

31st May 2007, 03:14

good god. macro delight!!
