I took advantage of how photogenic the fish looked at the pet store a few nights ago.

I see a future photo of the month/year there Jill!

In 1933 British road signs were standardised, and remained similar until 1964 when we went over to the ones they use on the continent. This direction sign was made before then, as although the design continued the arrow was standardised and removed the feathers, as was the font which was wider than this. I have trawled the net and as there were no rules have found a number of feathered arrows left with from one to five feathers each side. If you painted over the fancy bits this would become the arrow which followed it, which then became tapered later on.

Fabulous Alex! I bet Sue nicks that one Chavs!
To warn you, The theme thread will change on Saturday (22nd) and I will just call it Holiday, so you can put Christmas stuff in (or not).
It seems no time since we did the 12 days of Christmas . That was a nice thread,eh?

Thanks all. Jake, you are too kind. smile
Copago, I loved the photo of Jinx asleep on the boots and the sunrise was awesome as well.
Chavs, beautiful Christmas photo.
SpanishLiz, lovely photo. I'm glad you'll post such nice snow pics, it's something I never get to see (or want to, for that matter :p).

Thank you. These architectural photos are lovely.

Nice to see some snow, I agree, and nice to see Alex's summer colours in the midst of all these greys and pastels we have here at the moment.

Wonderful photo Chavs - very atmospheric

After a night of near torrential rain we found things pretty much floating under our kitchen window this morning

It is a sony cybershot HX200V. ( http://www.sony.com.au/product/dsc-hx200v )
I love it - I seldom use any of the manual features because what it does it so good smile I just loving having that much zoom for photos of the boy (and other animals wink ).

uhoh Christina! Has it all drained away?
Lovely Chavs.

In contrast to Liz's snow here is the lake as still as glass. We;re going to be spending a lot of time up there over the next few days. smile

It has drained away now thank goodness, but we have a lot more rain forecast. We havn't had it coming out of the ground like that in I don't know how long. We've got a pump on standby in case it gets too bad and starts looking like it might come in through the airbricks.

Lovely photos EVERYone!

Copago, thanks for the info about your camera

Alexx: love the fish. What brand of camera do you have? My aquarium pics generally come out all blurry unless the inhabits are pretty much motionless!

Speaking of which, I was just thinking (uh-oh lol) that it might be nice to have a separate sort of "camera review" thread, where folks could post what camera(s) they own (what they use them for if they have more than one) and what they like most/least about them, expense etc. People can add a link to a pic taken with that particular camera in the same post if they want. It might be quite helpful to have all this sort of info in "one place" rather than scrolling through all the threads to find out what folks are using (or if they were asked at some point, which I known several people have been)

What do you folks think?

I think that's a good idea. I know I've seen in various places what cameras some people are using but I wouldn't know where to find the information again.

Thanks, Jakeroo. It's a Kodak Easyshare C1450 - I had it on the 'close up' setting, which made catching the movement that little more difficult, and of course no flash, but this camera's macro settings are very very good. smile I do have a few more attempts where the fish were less stationary :P

Thank you for the camera info, Jill. I think a camera thread is a great idea.

Here's Alex looking sweet in his Christmas finery (actually he looks scared to death grin). See ClaraSue in the Theme thread. They both hate posing.

After the strong criticism of a few people to what was supposed to be a fun celebration of (and thank you for) the photos posted during the year I have been thinking very seriously about never posting another photo. The approach of the 'Anking' to the Port of Timaru may still be the last one as I have still not fully made up my mind.
