hello all!

Ive finally got my new camera and I must say, I love it! its a very small Praktica Pentagon Mini, has 3.2 mega pix, 4X digi zoom and i bought a 128MB card to go with it, it does the job nicely, all be it costing £94 altogether!
So ive got my photos uploaded with my new camera with my first collection 'What a load of cobblers' Which was the day (15 July, Friday) when I went on the last 90 Cobbler to Northampton, thee VERY last one, the 1821. also includes pictures of other places I went to in the day such as London Bridge and St Pancras.

View them here at http://jamesleeunderwood.fotopic.net/
then the collection


PLEASE NOTE: all other collections have gone except 'station signs', you should now enjoy proper pictures :)


Please do enjoy!
James.

LOL chaz yes that was a 1288gaje style photo, but it was up for a laugh I thought I'll try and make a new 456 and say its southerns experimental unit, as the caption says, just a bit of humor for the collection :)

That is a SUPERB shot. You couldn't have chosen a better angle.
I'll second that. Maybe you could enter it into the Top Left banner picture thingy..

Thank you for you comments on that 90 :) much appretiated :)

I do think about my shots, I took about 5 of that 90 in that position from different angles, just picked out what I thought is best.
Id like it to go in the top right logo randomizer, if any of the staff would like it to

I'd better ensure I get my best image up there...

I'd recommend having it up there, if for no reason than to have an OHLE-powered loco up there!

I never normally have to think much about my shots, I determine very quickly the angle and distance, point and click, perhaps with a touch of zoom if necessary. If it's moving, a 3 or 5-second countdown before clicking. Voila, I have a beasty pic!

In any case, expect a PM later TC.
