    Lots of people driving by giving me odd looks. Also, @Bazarchie - that's the Sigma 17-50, pretty sharp and that's f/4.0.

    Me, as well Kath, but, after a bit I, usually, have to ask them to leave ;)

    My best (story) was, whilst down in an alley in the skids, I came across a huge salmon
    in the middle of the alley and was using my Tamron 17/3.5 to shoot it (with similar results
    to the tennis ball) and, then, I closed down the aperture a bit and was shooting the junkies
    walking by asking the usual questions and, then, a couple of police officers, whom I knew
    (and vice versa) came down the alley and, of course, I popped off a few shots of them and,
    then, they asked the usual question (what ya doing, Jack?), and I said, I have a camera and
    lens, guess(?) :D They laughed and walked on and later on I make a couple of 8x10's and
    dropped them off the police station and made sure that they were seen by a few other officers
    before they got the pics. I saw them a few weeks later and I asked if they got their photos?
    Yes, they did, but, not before the photos had been photocopied and fiddled with by their
    fellow officers :D We're still friends :)

    My other half fixing his computer while getting his fix of sports. I only took it because I liked the green glow on the back of the monitor! Tomorrow there's American football. Perhaps
    I'll get a nice red white and blue shot?

    I'm glad you didn't go mono or I would have never realised the pink was behind the red....

    I do remember watching the snooker on a black and white telly in the 70s. I think it was the main reason we finally bought a colour television....long, long, long after everyone else we knew!

    From today...

    My old molar crown. Removed yesterday. Forty minutes in the chair and half a pint (well it felt that much!) of procaine to numb the right half of my head while she removed it, cleaned out the tooth, made a mould for the new crown and fitted a temporary one. Boy, am I glad that's done. So's she, probably. I do tend to whimper a bit... :oops:

    Hmmm, I wonder if she'll let me keep the temporary one when she removes it. And get a picture of the new one before it goes in...
