    This thread is for posting of FirstView pictures for the 1st of August, 2008. Please read the main About FirstView post, if you have not done so already. You may post only one image here, and it must have been taken on the 1st of August, 2008. Please remember to include the basic details - time and place of shooting, and what we're looking at. If you want to put in a short paragraph explaining what's going on, or why you chose that one, or whatever, then please do, but keep it brief and relevant. Any discussion beyond that can go in the 'Comments' thread. Please do not post comments or other replies here - they will be deleted. This thread is for FirstView image posting only.

    The picture thread will remain open for a few days in the first instance, so please try to get your contributions in promptly. People who are perhaps away from home, or need time for film processing, or are otherwise unable to post their images in the initial time slot should pm me - I'll re-open the thread later in the month for late additions. In all cases please remember that the forum image posting rules apply (see the 'POSTING IMAGES' sticky post, which can be found in the Appraisal Gallery).

    Finally, once again I would like to draw your attention to the new FirstView Gallery site - we would like as many contributors as possible to make use of this for hosting their FirstView images in order to maintain as complete an archive as possible for the future. Of course if you prefer not to you are still welcome to contribute to the FirstView threads with images hosted elsewhere.

    Also, not a good idea to wander around in the garden in your pijamas without checking first if the nettles have grown back. :eek:

    Dead, right out of the box! :-(

    This really annoys me - I use these energy-saving bulbs, like we're supposed to, and will all have to shortly because traditional tungsten ones are going to be phased out (EU directive, I believe). But they're so unreliable. When they work they're great, but I've had a disturbingly large proportion that were dead straight out of the box. This was another one that never so much as flickered. :-(


    1st of August, 2008. 11:59am. Fuji F610.

    Arrived from California on Tuesday. Could have had a D700 instead but at 70 years old and still holdng up I reckon it's a better pension!
