Me and Mrs Phil had our pics taken by our daughter who's studying photography

Mrs Phil looks better than me

 

She's obviously very lucky as well Phil

Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

After being badly treated by me for the better part of eight years things finally started to fall off my faithful D90.  It has now been relegated to the role of back-up camera and its place has been taken by the thrusting young buck of a Nikon D7200.

I am still recovering from the shock that something taken at ISO 25600 comes out with negligible noise. In fact, under lights at a non-league ground yesterday the quality of the image (not, obviously the quality of the photographer) at 1/1250, f4, ISO 25600 was remarkable (example below - although I'd not use it at this size). Hard to think that my first DSLR less than a decade ago couldn't really handle ISO 1600 - and that for film it was only black and white (from memory) that could go to ISO 3200 and that wasn't mainstream.  The auto-focus is just ludicrously quick compared to those 'older' cameras too - I just need to get the hang of controlling it.

Was there some offensive graffiti on the gable ends of two of those houses mate?, they look like they've been pixelated out.

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Some photographers used to push colour ISO 1600 to 3200, some probably still do.   A bit like vinyl, film is having a bit of comeback with old film types being revived.

My memory is that it was a lot easier (and the film more forgiving) with black and white.

Definitely, to push a fim beyond its ISO range needs specialist processing, most people who would push film developed their own rolls, though some specialist labs would process for a price.

Sand dunes, wind farm on horizon... so east coast?  

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I like that Henage. A bit of photomangling could crank it up.
