    Another kid versus dog

    Just think of the uproar that would have been created, had it been a fox and not a dog, the foxhunting brigade would have had a field day with it.. but as it's a dog.......

    Beginner Just starting out, Bridge Camera advice needed

    Of course you right, any good photographer could take really excellent photo's with any cheap camera of any type. like you say, it's not what you have in hand, it's whats between the ears. We must all have heard "All the gear & no idea" before. My opinion was DSLRs are best.

    Beginner Just starting out, Bridge Camera advice needed

    You said that, not me, all cameras have uses, but if your serious about photography, you need a DSLR, if you want snaps, there is plenty of choices.

    Cricket postioning

    Six A4 Pacific's at Sheldon

    Hi, I'm a bit of a railway enthusiast, but... even if they are never to been seen together again, the price they where asking for the night shoot WAS very much *over the top*. I've seen them all anyway, so paying to see them all in the "dark" on a wet evening, was something I'm not worried about...

    Cornwall cut-off by rail!

    Hi, One thing nobody seems to have noticed, the Wall at Dawlish was faulty for a while. I've seen a photo, taken during the summer, that shows a *dip* in the level of the top of the wall and a bulge outwards, right at the point it failed. Funny how nobody appears to have noticed this. (100%...

Well done, look forward to seeing more now lol Makes me want to have another crack at them, when we get some decent weather. I've borrowed my mates 2x converter, I have to go manual focus for the reasons you mention...

    The son need to be taught a lesson, a little jail term should teach him he can't attack anyone he chooses to, for whatever reason. (though I doubt it will happen, because of who he is )

    Best way to photograph Foxes

    Hi, I never seem to see them during daylight hours, then IF I do, I'm normally working without a camera. They seem to be anywhere & everywhere here in West Yorkshire. I have two cats and foxes don't bother them & visa versa, I've even seen the cat sat in the gateway and the fox just jumped over...

    Birds in your garden

    Hi, I'm not having any luck attracting birds into the garden, wood pigeons and blackbirds once or twice a day, the odd rare sparrow, blue tit's every now and again. Got seed & nuts out in feeders. Not much happening though.

    Taking children out of school for holidays

    I would not do it these days, especially with older kids. I have done in the past when they where a lot younger, like under 9 yrs of age. They have made it more difficult in recent years, trouble is, hols are so expensive during school holidays, bloody-rip off IMO.
