  • Hi Michael

  • Thanks Penny. I have 7 tropical fish tanks, But only 1 up and running at the moment with Malawi cichlids and a Malawi eel in at the moment. Smile
  • Thanks for the welcome EX. lol No mate. I am an ex biker chick. I can talk bikes till the cows come home. lol
  • The shops wouldn't buy it because they cater for the " younger " riders mostly now. They wouldn't appreciate a great bike like that these days. So sad really. I just love that colour.
  • The old metalic Kawaka green is the colour that my old 750z was. I loved that5 colour. I hated and still do hate the green they use now. That metalic grren they used to use was a fantastic colour.
  • " Riding hat Digi " ?

    LOL Paul. I am on about your picture called
    Pony Love " lol

    yep had a go myself on an 1100 when they first came out. Fantastic bike but still miss my 750z very much. The roads round here are the same as where you are either too wet, too busy or too icy because I live at altitude.
  • Thank you mrs webber Smile
  • @ paul

    I did have a kawasaki z 750 road bike. I had to sell it though and it broke my heart. Beautiful bike.

    "I'm thinking of buying my first DLSLR ,should I buy a Nikon or a Canon and what lenses do I need ? "/quote]

    I have just ordered the brochure for the D40x at the top of the forum so I think that will help me some.

    As for weird people I am used to them I own sled dogs so that counts me as weired so I should fit right in LOL

  • Thanks Jaspernina & jeanie.
  • Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

    I was hoping to put some pictures in my gallery but a message keeps coming up saying only one per day.
  • I don't know if any of you know this information but this is how the law stands on Photography.

    Candid photographs are images from life itself, the people around us, and are taken without the people being aware that they are even being photographed... ...but how do we stand when it comes to the law and Candid Photography?..

    Well, we do have to be very careful when it comes to passing on or selling images of children and strangers... ...the dangers involved with using images of children are patently obvious in this day and age, particularly with images involving innocent nakedness/part nakedness.

    The problems we can face when using images of adults are perhaps less obvious... ...the area we really need to be wary of is when selling or passing on these images for publication as publishers will not take candid images without a model release form being signed by the subjects, even though the law says we do not need permission to take these images... ...according to the law we have the right to take photographs of anyone in any public place without their permission... ...and we even have the right to take photographs of a private property, so long as we are taking them from a public place...

    The reason publishers and stock libraries insist on a model release form is to protect themselves from any possible litigation... ...imagine you take a photograph of a man walking down the street and neaby are a group of women, then you sell the image to a stock library and it then gets used in a magazine article on prostitution.. ...how would you feel about it if you were the man or one of the women?.. ...in that situation the man and women would be able to sue the magazine for libel.

    So the main lesson is, candid work for personal use, exhibitions and portfolio's is fine but be very careful when it comes to commercial work... Just my little addition to this converstation. Hope you don't mind.
  • My name is Jill

    I live in South Wales UK

    I only have a Kodak easyshare C340 camera at the moment. But I am looking at upgrading to a Nikon D40X very soon.

    I was recommended a Nikon DLSR by a friend so that is why I am going for one.

    This will be my first proper camera.
    I really don't know that much about photography or settings in digital camera so I will be asking loads of questions.

    Usually I just point the camrea at the subject press the shutter and hope for the best. Some of my macro pictures I am quite proud of but any suggetions would be most helpful.

    Thanks Jill
