belatedly going digital

Just got a digital camera, at last - checking out how this attaching pictures lark works

..... well that wasn't too difficult, but I think I can make it a bit bigger in future.

The picture is from my balcony / kitchen at dawn this morning. As with most dwellings in Thailand, the kitchen is not inside.

We have had a series of storms, and have hardly seen the sun, or a decent sunrise for several weeks now.

Nice pic michael.

Now you have a digital camera, get a photobucket or Tinypic account to host pics online. make them 600 or 800 pixels

Tinypic.com is way easier and 10 times faster than trying to upload to photobucket in my opinion....I tried both...

Welcome to the 21st century ole buddy

Yes, that's how I copy my pictures. Or some variation of that.(I host my own pics)

Photoblogs also let you host pictures as well. They can be organized the way you want in galleries, etc.

And welcome to the digital age. It's so much fun here.

Thanks guys, for the heads up on photo hosting. I'll be getting that sussed over the next little while. I had seen the term before, but it had me beat; now it starts to make sense.

With a new semester starting next week and a rugby match to watch this afternoon I have other immediate priorities. I'll be hoping either New Zealand or Ireland win the game......I have passports for both!

I got a little Olympus (edit!) Tough job. It can take a bit of knock, rain, and a shallow dunking.

I was looking at the Canon G series, or the Fujifilm Finepix X10 because they can be set manually, have an optical viewfinder, and the main controls are not too fiddly. In other words, not to dissimilar from photography as I know it, from the image capture point of view at least. I wore out a couple of Ricoh rangefinder 35mm cameras. However, they are a bit beyond my local salary. It would have been doable with funds from home, but something I prefer avoid doing.

The local Tesco supermarket had a stocktaking sale on, with the TG-310 going for a tenth of what I would have had to budget for a G12 or an X10, so it became an impulse purchase by my standards. I went back the next day. It makes sense to cut my digital teeth on.

Edit: Whats with this super polite "thanks" malarky that has popped up? A simple "like" button would be nice though.

I went into the office today, to get some photocopying done, and then went for a ride. as the rain let up for a bit. I signed up to TinyPic this evening. Now lets see how things have turned out........ On editing I got it right it seems. Sorry the pictures are not that good. I am still learning to use the camera.



The surf is all all over the place after several days of storms, but once it settles down some Phuket beaches produce reasonable surf throughout the May to November monsoon. They can be dangerous for swimming though, with strong rips and undertow. It's not for nothing that it is often called the drowning season, with several already this year. From December to April the sea and the beaches are quite benign.



I was after a photo of the Honda Wave with a side car full of LPG tanks. I knew it was coming, and that it would not be going too fast. Just as pressed the shutter release the other bike zoomed into the frame. I'll have to suss scanning if I want action shots.... it's easier with an optical viewfinder and the camera against my face.



Lots of motorcycles parked in front of my office. They are all little 100 - 125 cc machines. I have seen only a few CBR150R's on campus, and have yet to see a 250. The bicycle is mine. It is used for day to day getting around within a 5 to 10 km radius of home. I have had it for 9 years, probably the best value for money $150 I have ever spent.

No one works in the office; it's too gloomy. Like my colleagues, I do most of my work at home. If I want to meet students I sit at a table under the trees.



Scanning practice needed again, and heavy rain didn't help. A common sight; three girls on a motorcycle.... They are not very big so there still room for more; one in front of the driver, and another perched on the back.

Nai Harn, Phuket; there was quite a lot going on as people came out after the storm. A metre and a half depth of sand had disappeared from the beach. It will be dumped to create a bar a bit off shore, which should be good for the surf. Once the monsoon is gone the sand gets returned to the beach.
