    (I haven’t ever done this before — be the first person to leave a comment on my own picture that is. In hindsight, it is clear I should have created a mechanism by which I could leave a note describing or clarifying something about a picture if I so wanted. But hindsight is always 20/20 and I don’t have such a mechanism in place. So here is where my little spiel will go.)

    Ladies and gents, I have peaked.

    This picture is the one I am most proud of in this recent set. It was taken just instants after I shot this. Everything so far was building upto this moment, and I’ve been literally having my hands bound so I didn’t post this too hurriedly.

    Sadly, for you, this just means it’s all downhill from here.

    Enjoy while you can though, and thanks for being here.

    My trusty old Olympus Camedia C-5050 zoom camera.

    I had (and still have) serious sensor dust issues with the EOS 20D, so reverted back to the Olympus for a while. Magically, my love for taking pictures returned, and I would say the quality of my pictures are improving again.

    And, not to get too geeky, but I mostly leave the EXIF data on the images (unless I have something to hide). So, if you’re on Windows say, you right click the image and save it somewhere. You then right click the image on your hard drive -> properties -> summary -> advanced. This will show you most information pertinent to the picture, one of which being the camera used.

    Pundit. Already blogged about it, Take a look at my site then! By the way, how did you write this special skin for wordpress? I love it. Just a suggestion, can you add a drop down menu or whatever for your archives for easier navigation? :) Keep up!

  7. pundit says:

    THANK YOU. That was such an excellent suggestion! I’ve spent months trying to introduce an archive system that wasn’t too cluttered. I’ve added a list now. It isn’t perfect, but I will fix it in time.

    Also, I am writing up a small document on how I made the skin, I will link to it once I am done.
