    A flower arrangement I made for my mom's birthday 2 weeks ago. Flowers cost $23 at Sam's Club (2 dozen roses, 1 bunch of Solidaster), Vase cost $9 or $10 at DD's Discounts (like Ross, Marshals, TJ Maxx, etc.). A killer deal by florist's prices. This is only 21 Roses, the other 3 went into a bud vase (no pics taken).

    It's some kind of centipede, but I've never seen one in my insect books. I call them "house centipedes" since they only appear indoors.

    About 2" long and they are super fast. Look like a ball of dust roaring around.

    You took that with an Olympus C830L / D340R 1.3 Megapixel Digicam using Macro Mode. The camera decided on a exposure setting of f11, 1/30s, ISO 100. Therefore the camera must have been pretty close to the wall since compact digicams don't have that kind of flash power for that exposure. Also the camera has a fixed focal length of 36mm. Therefore I conclude that what you have said above would be highly improbably although you can use a external slave flash along with with a wide angle lens.

    You forgot to mention that he DID use the flash.

    How do you interpret the exif tag "Focal length : 5.5mm" ?

    I merely looked for specs of his camera. Smaller sensors need wider angle lens since they have a small FOV which would result in a "zoom" effect. The camera he uses doesn't have zoom (fixed focal length) and therefore it's pretty easy to conclude that it's just 36mm that the website I linked gave for specs.

    Those are some seriously beautiful pictures.

    The building below is on California Street in SF. I used to work on the 30th floor, looking out at the Transameria Pyramid and the bay.

    Someone gets to see the light:


    .. in the face:



    There must have been AT LEAST 1000 lumens of output there, we had my ROP/LE, a couple of Turboheads and some medium LEDs.

    I enjoyed taking the top shot. It really looks like something straight outta the movies.

    I think you sould edit your sig line to say: "Life begins at 1000 lumens"

    Here's the view out my front door the other morning. It was a nice morning



    and this critter was on my screen for several hours until he left, he was like 3 inches long!



    and finally a couple of shots across the river at night, you can see the savannah river bridge (officially called the cornealius talmudge brige but nobody calls it that, wonder why? and called by the locals the "what the He** is that smell" bridge as there is a paper plant not far downriver from there and when the wind is right you can smell the sulphur dioxide they use to bleach the pulp )
