Nikon D200 @ 80mm, 1/80 sec, f/6.3, ISO 125


Previous · Current · Next


Man, what a difference a couple of weeks can make. I've had quite a lot going on recently and this coupled with the fact that I'm heading down to London for a six month stint in a week's time has meant that the blog has been relegated to the bottom of the pile.

So the first thing you'll probably notice is a couple of entries in the exif data that you've not seen before. I've only managed a couple of outings with the D200 so far but I have to admit that I've been mightily impressed with its performance. I'll be sure to report back a little more thoroughly and attempt to justify (if I can) the upgrade.

I took this shot on Monday on what was a rather impromptu, but much welcomed, visit from the lovely Jem at shutterjunkie. She finally took me up on my offer to give her a tour of the wonderful city of Edinburgh, although it turned out that I wasn't much of a tour guide (my knowledge is pretty much limited to reading the tourist info signs)! It was the last day of the festival (I think) and the weather wasn't particularly great so the streets weren't quite as busy as they normally are at the weekend. But there was still a handful of the usual entertaining street performers, so we managed to get some shots in.

Anyway, was a really good day so thank you Jem for puting up with the horrible train journey to get here. It's amazing what she'll do just to get her hands on a Nikon :)

Hi John - there's plenty of folks down here London will be pleased to finally meet you - consider me one of them, if you ever get chance? A D200, eh? I need a payrise... What are the big differences over the D70 for you?

Woo. A D200! You lucky bugger :) I'll be looking forward to your photos from that. I'd also like to know the big differences from the D70; I held one in my hand and noticed the weight was one, but I haven't had a go with one yet.

Jem looks smaller than I'd imagined. Nice of you to lend her your jacket though ;)

And Jon's still playing the old game of Canon vs. Nikon that we had whilst I was there ;P

John,
I can't stand the pain of losing you, you have become suge a huge part of my life.
Checking in here every day to see what you have been up to has become such an important part of my daily routine. To finally realise that you have given up on this blog and moved onto pastures new has been like a knife in my heart.
I wish you well in London but my life will never be the same again without you in it.

John, whatever the reason is for this abrupt discontinuation of your splendid blog, know that there are and always have been a lot of "quiet" and faithful admirers of your photography blog out there that would love to see it prospering. I know we have no right to ask for anything, but I encourage everyone to join me and give John a warm encouragement to keep pursuing and sharing his outstanding work! In any case, I wish you, John, that your passion for photography stays as strong as it has obviously been for many years. Best wishes.

John, may your dick get hard every time the wind blows and may your dog bark every time the burglers call.

Good luck John, cheese and onion crisps.
