: The non-Focus photo thread
07-24-2005, 02:22 AM
Like it says. Inspired by SVTDavan sharing some of his photographs, I thought we should start a thread for people to share pictures they've taken of other stuff besides their car. [:D] Could be another car, could be a landscape, friends, whatever.
I'll start. I bought a new point 'n shoot digicam to take with me when I don't want to drag around the EOS, and I've been going around Martinez experimenting with it. I'm pleased to find it takes nice photographs once you figure out how to use it - I missed two fighter jets flying over the Carquinez Strait because I panicked and couldn't figure out how to switch it out of playback mode fast enough. [rolleyes]  Oh, yes the water is really brown, it's not the camera. Yeah it's not as pretty as blue water. Deal with it.
I know there are people on here who like to take pictures, let's see them, don't be shy. [thumb]

I have some I just took this past weekend at the beach. I will post them up when I get home.
07-24-2005, 08:22 PM
you guys use imageshack for that? that makes it nifty!!! oh well, i have photobucket. will post some pics later once i resize my stuff. nice pics! :)

Photos taken at Chincoteague/Assateague Island NWR:
2 white-tail deer out on a salt-marsh. It looked so awesome cause it looked like they were walking on water:
07-24-2005, 11:36 PM
Slayer, is that kind of a "panoramic" shot if you put them all together?
Ashley, nice pics! I especially like the first and fifth pictures. [:)]
07-24-2005, 11:45 PM
07-25-2005, 12:29 AM
I just realized, all these sunsets and I don't think I've taken any sunset pictures with any of my digital cameras. [rolleyes]
Here are some shots of Angel Island, in the SF Bay. This was two years ago, and these were taken with my first digital camera. I think they hold up okay for being shot with a "cheap" camera, but I would like to go back and get some really high quality shots.

Oh wow LastRites, that second pic is awesome.
Warren, I really like the middle picture. It just looks like it's trying to 'lure' me in!

Ashley, for the non-East Coasters, where is the island you went to?
07-25-2005, 12:44 AM
It's on the eastern part of Virginia, south of Ocean City, Maryland. It's one of those 'tips' off the coast.
07-25-2005, 12:46 AM
It looks like you guys were the only ones there! Places like that are hard to find these days.
07-25-2005, 12:52 AM
Well most of those pics were either taken early in the morning or late in the evening. It was too hot to be out there in the middle of the day.
And there really wasn't a lot of people there. At least from my experience at beaches. It's not much of a 'beach' town. A few shops here and there and that's about it.
07-25-2005, 12:59 AM
Any place around here that is even a little bit "touristy" has tons of people. Those Angel Island pictures don't show it but there was actually tons of people there. It's frustrating, it's hard to really enjoy the sights and the experience when there's a zillion other people there with you. Those shots inside the run down old hospital, I kept having to wait for people to get their butts out of the way of my camera to get the picture. [:D]
07-25-2005, 01:47 AM
Nice pics frush! I think I remember you posting some of those before? [paranoid]
07-25-2005, 11:21 AM
Okay, I am being weird, but I cannot for the life of me upload my pics into imageshack. i have an account, it uploads the pic... then when i go to check "MY IMAGES" nothing is there. And also, the widget for Mac isn't working... it just keeps saying "Uploading image"... argh... HELP?! I guess I'll just stick to photobucket and have huge huge huge pics all over this thread... which I am trying to eliminate...
07-25-2005, 11:40 AM
Beats me Jackie. I didn't bother with the Widget so I don't know about that, but I just went to Imageshack and uploaded a pic without even registering first. It worked, then I decided I wanted to be able to keep track of everything that I uploaded, so THEN I registered. The "My Images" page works fine for me. [confused] Are you using Safari? Have you done all the latest Mac OS X updates?
07-25-2005, 11:43 AM
Ehhh.. prob not? :( Nothing popped up to prompt me for updates lately? Hmmm...
07-25-2005, 11:58 AM
Yeah I don't really know why that would make any difference, but sometimes the latest updates fix stuff that I've had problems with. You might try (if you're willing to do it) emptying the cache in Safari and then revisiting the My Images page.
The latest versions should be 10.4.2 for the OS and 2.0 (412.2) for Safari.

somewhat, you would probably have to do some cropping if you were going to put them together.
this thread really has grown since i've been on last, nice pics everybody
07-25-2005, 08:03 PM
I'm not going to say these are great pics... I'm just posting these cuz they were from my fun weekend!
Went to yacht club with bf to watch him sail his Star... he hasn't raced it in a while. Then on Sunday I went for a quick flight! First time ever in a small private plane.
Here are some pics. (Warren, I finally got imageshack working.. sorta)

07-25-2005, 09:14 PM
Nice pics Jackie! Ughh, the thought of flying in that plane makes me sick to my stomach though. [xx(] My mom's dad was a private pilot until he got too old for it, I flew a handful of times over the years with him and was secretly thankful when he decided to "throw in the towel." [rolleyes]
I did, however, have the guts once to fly in a tiny two-seater plane with no doors on it. But I made sure that harness was strapped TIGHT. I drew the line at flying in a vintage Stearman biplane, though. [hihi] I didn't like the open cockpit.
07-25-2005, 09:35 PM
These are some pics I have taken!! Some were from my Focus but it doesnt really count because its of other things!! Besides it was really cold that day and I wasnt about to walk around!! Might be big too but im not gonna resize them!
Heres one I took of a beer truck![cool]

Imageshack is not agreeing with me either, Jackie. I uploaded images and none of them are showing up. So I uploaded them again and made sure to copy the code for each one this time. [:D]
These are a couple shots of the helicopter (or air ambulance as they call it) that my dad was flown on after suffering a heart attack last year. The chopper was used to move him from one hospital to another because not wasting any time was crucial. As you can see, it was a pretty tight squeeze in there for the crew and a "patient" in the back.

08-02-2005, 03:07 AM
I guess my thread has met it's end. But I wanted to post one more that I like. I like this one because it was a completely unintentional coincidence that I took two pictures which overlapped each other. I didn't notice until a few days ago when going through all the recent pictures I've taken. I chose not to "doctor" the join, so you can see it in the grass, but the sky came out good (on my monitor it looks good anyway).
08-02-2005, 03:09 AM
i guess i'll have to break out the camera and take some more pics
08-02-2005, 03:10 AM
Damn straight. Get out there and shoot it up, buddy. [:D]
08-02-2005, 05:01 AM

LastRites, is that a couple guys trying to grill something in the middle of all that rain in your first pic??
Also the old Korean guys are looking at the skating like it's something they've never seen before in their life. [hihi]
08-07-2005, 10:21 AM
just found this thread, if i had known about it earlier it might be a few posts larger. if you guys like these i can definately post more, i got addicted to film in february and didnt break the habit until may.
edit: the first three were taken with a canon ae-1, and the second were taken with a minolta maxxum 5. im still getting used to the canon as it is completely manual. the first 4 were taken on kodak elitechrome 100 (slide film) developed at a 1-hour photo. the last shot was taken on kodak 125px.

BTW how can i upload more than one picture on the same post?
08-07-2005, 10:58 AM
you cant, all of the posts with more than one pic are using an image hosting service.

Interesting pictures everyone. I haven't used a film camera in over 3 years. [:I] I just noticed recently the batteries in my Canon EOS Rebel G are dead. Those suckers are expensive and it's hard to justify the cost of replacement since I've got digital cameras now that are better and the batteries are rechargeable. Amazingly the batteries in my Nikon F2AS just keep going and going.
BTW what's with the pictures being hosted on that lomography site? I thought that was for people using the cheap-ass Lomo camera who bought into the whole "don't think just shoot" philosophy that the camera maker is using to sell cheap cameras??
08-13-2005, 01:09 PM
the hosting is free and provides feedback for my work...i cant say that ive ever used a lomo camera, the only cameras that i use are my canon ae-1, minolta maxxum 5, and my olympus d-560 (dont use that one that much). i suppose that i could use another host such as imageshack but i already have a lot of pictures on the lomo site.
also, most people dont follow the philosophy "dont think, just shoot" there are a lot of very good photograhpers there.
http://www.lomohomes.com/fallacious.vision (shameless i know)
check it out, tell me what you think. ive got 20 albums up there as of now, most are over 20 pics. i try to post almost entire rolls of film so that people can see the good and the bad. im still learning and with any luck i can turn my hobby into a cashflow during college.
