Thanks, the cocker loves to pose as well. yes in the words of alan partride i do drive a lexi now. needed a compromise between comfort and power. BTW the lexus shots were from a p&s camera.

Some woman's husband had a bakery make her a Nikon D700 cake, then he gave her the actual camera afterward.

Captured a rather interesting beast at Yala last weekend. Good thing the SLR has a high ISO and an IS lens, or this wouldn't be possible. :)

Check the guy in front. That is a green oval on the door. There was also one on the bonnet. Guess he's not a big Toyota fan :D

OT but i saw a trishaw with a BRD (yes BAJAJ Racing DEvelopment) spashed across its windscreen! :lol:

& the fine irony would be if by chance that Hilux belongs to Frontier or something? :unsure::lol:

Well, having PS itself doesnt make the photograph good. You have to know where to do the tweaking up. heheee!

Yep, shame the D&S didnt work out for you last time. We could try a small one again, but these days it rains like nothing and that too only during the very small window of lighting thats ideal for photography. We'll see..

Btw, i dont suppose there'll be a AL G2G sometime in late December early Jan? If i recall there hasnt been one in some time, right?

Finally made up me mind and bought a 50D with ef-s 18-55IS and ef-s 55-250IS.. and some accessories like filters, tripod etc :)

MeanG is carrying it down for me from the US by the end of December :)

Well Ripper I think it is the combination of the two which has limited their participation !

I mean if you look at the auto lanka membership you will note a significant percentage of people in the IT industry :) But sitting in front of a computer all day for pleasure isn't something most members of the fairer sex I know are that fond of. Then we have to combine that with the numbers who are genuinely interested in the mechanics of automobiles (not simply cars but their function as well ), and combine them with the number of them who actually has time for this sort of thing with various other distractions and well ......... its not looking good :)
