    Day out in the garden

    The weather was lovely today here in the Netherlands, so I wanted to do some gardening. I got distracted though by all the little crawlies who came out to see the sun. Here's a couple of them. Here's a little squashbug basking in the sun: A very tiny hoverfly: I was focusing on the...

    Marpissa Muscosa (Jumping Spider)

    Well, it's been a while since I showed my face around here ;) Study, moving, working, it all ate up my time. But hey, summer is finally here, my study year is almost over and I just moved to a more rural area of the country so, taking pics is easier than ever. Yesterday I started exploring...

    Cat photoshoot

    This is my bedroom, the ginger cat is mine, the black cat is his brother and is owned by my neighbour. They had this game going on: one would lie in front, the other in back, and they were willing to pose this time. It was a nice excercise in depth etc. I am curious as to how you think these...

    Macro shot of an ant [insect alert!]

    I need advice on G5 additional lenses

    Hey there. I can buy a set of new converterlenses for my Canon G5 for a reasonable price. Prices are steep here, and if I were to buy this set in the stores, I'd pay 50 euro's for the converter ring, roughly 120 to 130 euro's for the telephoto converter and roughly 150 for the wide angle. And...

    The spider and the ant

    Today is the first really warm day here in holland in a long time. Now while that is totally great, it can be gross too cause a whole colony of flying ants decided to hatch under my nose in my garden. Ugh, I hate the little buggers. Anyway, in exterminating them I got a little help. Don't you...

    Ok...first post here. Shark

    Now, Yamant got me all enthusiastic to do some aquarium photography. Tis a LOT harder than you think...and then some. Now, there is one pic out of the whole batch I particularly like, but there are some flaws to it. I know that the shark's head is too blownout (you can see it even...

    Yeah, we really have a little town called Monster over here :D Anyway, this was just a spur of the moment trip and I was lucky to have my camera and tripod with me. What do you think? On the first one, there is a little post-processing, cloned out a blue truck that passed by behind the kite...

    Old Harbor and IJssel Lake in Holland (resized!)

    I went out with a friend of mine to shoot some photo's of the old harbor at the place she lives, Hoorn (little town in Holland, situated on the IJssel Lake). The day was drab and dreary, but I shot in black and white and some pics turned out half-decent. I think. Comments? This...

    Bugs 'n flowers

    I took my cam with me when I was visiting the inlaws and some family and took some shots in their gardens using the macro option. They turned out pretty well, even though the shot with the bee is not completely to my liking cause at the top, the flowers are slightly out of focus...
