I want — Canon Camera Lens mug

I am sure that all photographers, amateur or professional, wold love drinking their favourite brew from a mug like this.

Let me quote from PhotoJoJo:

Introducing: the Camera Lens Mug, a mug rendered to resemble a remarkably realistic 24-105mm Canon lens!

Complete with lens-cap lid and rubber-grip zoom and focus rings, this marvelous mug also features an autofocus switch that actually switches between AF and MF.

We know the warning signs too well. You’ll begin with a cup of Earl Grey, then move onto a banana yogurt smoothie, next, an ice cream fudge sundae, and pretty soon, you’ll be so hooked on your new mug, you’ll be eating dinner out it, too!

You can find it here.

#8/365 – Majestic in flight

Yesterday I asked whether anybody knew the red and white aeroplane.  Thanks to Harry, I now know it is Air Mauritius and I should have known that since I flew in one a couple of years ago.

Today was one of those days where the aeroplanes was behind the clouds even before it got to my house so I had to depend on a photo I took yesterday.

Now that is what I call majestic.  Just something about an aeroplane in full flight with its wheels nicely tugged away.

The full set of these photos can be seen in my Picasa Album.

Sunrise and play with settings on camera

This morning we had one of those sunrises which one only gets when there is some clouds around and the rising sun make the clouds look like they on fire.

I have a Canon PowerShot SX20 IS camera and this morning I played around with its sunrise settings.  This first photo was taken with the AUTO setting on the dial.

I then change the dial to SCN and the Sunset setting under that.  This is the result taking the same photo as above.

As you can see from the second photo, it is much redder.  To be honest, the first photo is much more natural and I like that one more.  What do you think?

You can see more of this in my Picasa Sunset and Sunrise Album.

#5/365 – 1Time in full flight

If you do stay in Cape Town, you will immediately know that this photo was not taken today.  It is rainy, gloomy and not a good day to take photos of airplanes flying overhead.

This photo was taken in the late afternoon so you can see the setting sun reflecting of the belly of the plane.

The full set of these photos can be seen in my Picasa Album.

#3/365 – Through the rainbow

Being a cold and rainy day in my part of the world today, I went digging for a photo I took a while ago.  It is not perfect and the plane is a bit blurry.

I caught the SAA plane just as it passed in front of the rainbow, or seems like it was flying through the rainbow.

The full set of these photos can be seen in my Picasa Album.
