    Looks like she does play that game: He loves me, he loves me not. - plucking the petals of the flowers.

    great picture, truer than the official marriage pictures.

    I'm afraid she had should chosen another guy.

    After taken the pic I was on my way home reading the Echo when the first thing I saw was a pic and the story of the wedding. There is a few more on my flickr site.

    Excellent photograph, gregs dad! The photograph is especially meaningful to me since I am a fan of poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, who you may know was a priest for a time at St. Francis Xavier. Great to know you went to school there as well.

    All the best

    The last sighting of Spring Heeled Jack was supposed to have been on that spire, if you can believe in such things.

    That church is magnificent and must never be allowed to go the way of St. Joeys, Holy Cross and the Friary.

    that sh* thing doesn't work as good as I'd expected. In the shop they'd told, I could get as close as 5 cm to the object. Means, I could take a picture of a spider. But this function doesn't work. I must keep a distance of 10 or more cm. Am I doing something wrong, or is the camera wrong?
    In the manual is written I could take very close pictures. But there is no indication of the centimetres.

    What shall I do now?

    Put the macro setting on.
    I've taken photos of a spider today, and cropped one photo.
    It's in the 'Macro' thread.

    Well Atany,
    the superdooper camera I got for Christmas, still languishes in it's box, though I did use it once, but it would only let me take 6 pic's, due to the high resolution level! I'll figure it out eventually!

    yes a horrible spider. But the leaf is nice.
    And I had switched on the macro-function already.

    but you can chop down the resolution or buy a better memory card.
