Yeah, I'd be up for that. And I like your optimistic use of the word "if" in that sentence...

Really struggled with this one. I had to balance the tripod on three chairs and used the kit lens - I was attempting to have the exposure set so that you could see the detail of the element, without too much noise. As it was an awkward position, I ended up having to crop quite a bit, which has obviously eroded some of the detail, and I've fettled it a bit with Aperture.

That's a B&W speaker, something like a DM601 S2 IIRC

Here's my 2nd one:

What-every-teenager-wants
What every teenage birthday boy wants.

I know it's 2 birthday pics in a row, but it's my son's 15th birthday today. Yes, he was almost the most expensive birthday present I've ever received by nearly arriving on my birthday! I still think it would have been rather cool for us to both have the same birthday. In case you were wondering, he got a grand total of Ł100 from various very generous relatives and Ł50 from us.

Here's mine - did silversmithing class tonight so not much time on my hands! Ran down the road and saw this:

foxglove

Not entirely happy with it - I don't have a macro on my 400D...

Nice shadows but just hope that one doesn't get turned into a poster with a caption "does this photographer look shifty".....................

I've got 5 to choose from today. None are really that good though. Just got to decide which one to use for PAD. I managed to miss the rain today. Got back into the office at lunch about 10 mins before the heavens opened, and was trying to chase a sunset tonight, but missed it
