For all you flickr users. I'm experimenting with embedding images from flickr, is there a way you can embed the image so it's in the middle of the page, and not to the left like mine above?

What I use is [ c ] and close it with [ / c ]
Minus the spaces of course

Ok, stupid question. Where do I place the [ c ] in relation to the image?

He's a cutie for sure. Rocky probably gets along with him since Higgs isn't old enough to mark his territory yet, so I think you'll be good to go.

Tough day for Higgs today. First trip to the vet. Poked, prodded, temp taken, and a shot.

He and Rocky actually together today. Good hard play that lasted 5-10 minutes. Maybe they will get along!

Thanks Matt! It was fun to let the windows take me back to my childhood too, even though these aren't the same ones I saw as a kid.

Laura - I enjoyed looking at your series on animated windows. Well done.



Lovely shots Leighton, and definitely keep your orange on, wouldn't want to have someone mistake you for a deer. And I see you figured out the center tag

Hi All,
Just back from Sweden and trying very hard to catch up with the amazing images added (and the amazing number of pages) since I left. Needless to say some great work, from memories of being allowed to watch the first ever space shuttle launch (and a few days later the landing) on TV thanks to Samy to the great Bokeh shots from Ray and everything in between.

I'm afraid that I have several hundred pics (757 to be exact) from this trip taken with the 28mm, 50mm and the 105mm. I'll try not to bore you all with them and limit myself to only a few from each lens.

But to start with some that I know will go down well. Bikes (some even in B&W). And a pretty lady. And she's offering me food. The first 2 are the 50mm and the last 2 are the 28mm.

Lastly when I got back there was a parcel being delivered by the postman. A big thanks to Matt for such excellent service! That's slots 7 & 8 now filled. What to get for the lucky last?

Great images. Looks like we're on a 50mm 1.2 marathon

Mark - Welcome home! Don't worry with boring us, can't be done. I know, I've tried. Love the shot of the girl with the flat bread, I bet it was delicious!

Reagan - Beautiful morning light, the bridge shot is my favorite. I thought you were giving up and switching to m4/3rds?

Well then I will start with the images from the 50mm in Sweden.

The first is looking towards the old town on the Island of Gamla stan. i think the spire is that of the German Church but I don't know the story behind why there is a German church there, although Sweden from the time of Gustavus Adolphus in the 17th Century Sweden was Protestant like parts of Germany.

Gustavus Adolphus was a busy man, firstly over-throwing his cousin then waging a war with him over control of Poland, and hence most of the Baltic coast. Also he was busy watching over his shoulder at the Catholic invasion of Jutland and a rick of Catholic control over Copenhagen and Zealand which would have bottled Sweden up inside the Baltic Sea and denied them a route to the North Sea. So he decided to strengthen his Navy with the building of 4 large warships, the first of which was the Vasa.

The Vasa was Sweden's first attempt at a 2 gun-deck ship and also the world's first ship with guns all of the same caliber (other countries had guns on the upper deck which were smaller than the lower) as an attempt to help make it easier to keep stocked with cannon balls, as previously each gun was a unique piece with a different sized shot, you can imagine what that would have been like logistically. However this meant that the ship was top heavy and too narrow and on it's maiden voyage it was caught by a gust of wind, heeled over and water started coming in the open gun ports and she sank within 20 minutes with the lost of about 30 hands. All within the first nautical mile.
Amazingly with technology of the time they managed to salvage the cannons from the wreck, but the ship itself was left until the 1960's where it was raised, preserved and is now on display at the Vasamuseet on the island of Djurgården.
The actual story of the loss is one of human failure after human failure. Everyone knew the vessel was too unstable to sail, but no-one dared tell the king that the warship that was to be the pride of his fleet couldn't sail when he wanted it to, so...disaster ensured. In the best tradition the ensuing board of enquiry found no-one responsible.
The other ships in the Vasa's class were build 1.5m wider and were very successful for 30 years until they were outstripped by technology.

The Vasa sailed past the waterfront of the island of Gamla stan and thousands of watching citizens, where today tens of thousands of people walk and stop to feed the gulls, not thinking of the events that had unfolded there 384 years before.

You better believe it was good. If you ever get the chance, Elk is delicious!

Nice work everyone.

Monty, those images of The Particle are priceless!

Matt, sad to see your MF lenses up for sale. Good luck on your neck.

Leighton, the neighbors fence image is great. Love the depth of field play.

Mark, nice series from Sweden. The image of the young girl with the flatbread is very nice.

Reagan, good to see you are getting up early. Nice sunrise images.

In quasi-reverse-chronological order:

Reagan - your bridge shot does it for me, nice diffraction off the lights too. That's the 50 f/1.8?

Leighton - I also really liked your "boring" shot, your valley looks sublime. I suspect you're the same, I can never predict which images people will like or comment on the most.

Elton - b/w Route 66 for me!

Jorge - sorry to hear about your eyesight, and glws! You took some fine images with your manual focus gear, so I'm sure the autofocus motors in your remaining lenses won't hold you back.
