Yeah. They can also give your imp and infection so make sure you give the little fella a course of antibiotics.

I am so far! Not had chance to test on action pics yet and it's a bit top heavy on my light camera but it really does the job. There's some free lunchtime concerts near work this week and providing I can dodge the PCSOs and Park Police I'll be taking some snaps there!


Unless it's private land, I didn't think the PCSO's/Police could touch you??

I thought this thread was about ordinary people taking ordinary photo's , not a masterclass from BBC 2.


It is, here's one I took earlier - didn't have time to focus or anything, just pointed and shot



Errr, I'd just like to say I dont usually hang around rugby pitches hoping to get a shot like that - I'm not into union, honest blush.gif

Yes, yes. That's what they all say.

Anyway, in the absence of anybody else sticking their photies here dry.gif here's one from yesterday: ITV were shooting a commercial for their football coverage next season. The crew were more interesting though.

A few non league pics I've taken over the last six months or so. I take league stuff all the time but a bit of variety is nice.

Cricket


Aussie rules

Jon, do you always do black and White or is it just Urban ones that you think look better.

Got some of the trial shots on the computer at last, just photos of the back garden, the cat and flowers so far, but I am so impressed with the quality of the image.

Will have to find something more interesting to photograph.

Legally though, the police couldn't have forced the guy to remove the pictures from his camera in a public place, but I concede they could stop and search anyone and a camera could make you more of a target. A PCSO could do feck all though, as is the case in most circumstances!! Check Youtube, theres a couple of videos of photographers telling PCSO's where to go (ie you don't know the law, you jumped up little traffic wardens) and there's also one where the police try to tell a guy that he can't video them, he tells them to check the law, and they scuttle off having been put in their place once checking with HQ. Also, if you law said couldn't take photos of whoever or whatever you want in a public place, the paperazzi wouldn't exist and they're not exactly short of work at the moment!!!

No. I just upload the ones I've got on my PC.

BTW note, once again, the sunlight. Look it up in a dictionary.

There's a Sony DSLR for less than 300 on Amazon. Must say I'm tempted, I wouldn't dream of spending more then that for my first one.

Meant to ###### down tonight though.

It's a website where you can purchase books, dvds, electronic goods and other stuff. Don't know about any extras but the p&p is a bit ######.

You see that's a good response but it took you hours and it still ain't as good as my phaser line.

Incidentally I did a kelkoo on the A200 and Amazon is the most expensive for that set-up.
