You can't take a photo of this, it's already gone.

This week I have been mostly... sleepy

I have been mostly playing with my new Canon 5D Mk II

I'm currently reading... White Gold Wielder, Stephen Donaldson

I am mostly listening to... Muse

I am currently... Writing a paper

When I should be... Working harder

I am most looking forward to... The Muse concert on Thursday :)

This weekend I am... probably cooking an Easter dinner for everyone.

The website for my lab

My brothers website

An amazingly good program that can recover lost/deleted photos

Annoyingly, they didn't let anyone use any lenses above 70mm, and I only had my telescopic and my lensbaby, which is why they're all weird selective focus shots.

what? they frisk you for your lens at the door? ready for the olympics? is there enough snow?

I like these. I always sit so high up that everything looks like toys anyway.

I'm with swamprose - how did they know? Do they have special spotters in the crowd?

Woo hockey! Was there roughing?

Swamp: we were up pretty high too, but the view was good enough to see what was going on.

They didn't frisk me, but they did check my bag when I went in and told me any telephoto zoom lenses weren't allowed. I thought it would be ok, but a few other people in my section had zooms and were pounced on my staff telling them if they got them out again they'd be confiscated. Given that my zoom is a massive white not-so-inconspicuous lens I thought it would be best to keep it in my bag. They even double checked my lensbaby to make sure it wasn't telephoto, despite it being tiny. I think consumer SLRs are getting so good now that the stadium is worried people will sell their photos rather than the offical photographers on the ground.

Crickson> There was only a little spat, no major fights. There was some controversy though, as one of the referees allegedly told a player he was out to get him, and then gave him a contentious penalty which ultimately lead to his team losing.
