Last August I had the opportunity to spend a day at Portsmouth Dockyard. Here are the pics I took, mostly of the Mary Rose Museum, Boathouse 4, and HMS Warrior. HMS Victory also features, though on this occasion I didn't go inside.
Now that the finalists in the STFC 2018 Photowalk competition have been announced I'm posting my own pics from the two photowalks I attended, namely the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire and Chilbolton Observatory near Winchester. I submitted competition entries from both of these photowalks, but wasn't surprised not to be shortlisted. There's a public vote on the finalists — just go to this website and click on your three favourites: https://tinyurl.com/stfc-photowalk-2018-vote — but do it before the deadline, which is 23.59 on Monday 6th August 2018.
The photos I took at RAL are here:
My Chilbolton Observatory photos are here:
Shutterbug has published an article entitled "The Top 20 Greatest Cameras Of All Time" — which is a possibly contentious headline. If gear is your thing, perhaps you should share your take on this in the comments.
Selecting the greatest cameras of all time is inherently subjective, and a great way to start arguments. In compiling the list below for Shutterbug of the “20 Greatest Cameras of All Time,” I tried mightily to temper my own preferences and prejudices by vetting it with a handful of bona fide camera experts, but I take full responsibility for any errors of commission, omission, or ruffled feathers. I’ve split my “greatest hits” list squarely down the analog/digital divide, with 10 film cameras and 10 digital models making the cut. They’re all great cameras, and many are of historical significance, but if you beg to differ with my choices, or want to suggest additional worthy models for inclusion, please do in the comments below. Indeed, if we receive enough thoughtful responses we may do a follow-up article on those cameras we didn’t include here. In the meantime we sure hope you enjoy reading about those we picked.
Check out the article and see if (and what) you would add to or omit from this list.
Chase Jarvis has some good advice on his blog:
My own framework for evaluating a project is pretty straightforward but has proven very effective for my professional development and my career. Here’s my not-so-secret sauce: if it doesn’t have at least 2 of the following 3 components, my answer is “thanks, but no thanks”
