so i have decided that i am not going to post any pictures while on this trip. i am going to try and fit it all on the 2 x 256 meg flash cards and 1 32 meg card, though i really think that’s pushing it. i have deleted a tonne of rad pictures but taken even more gooder ones. the thing about taking pictures on this trip that is even if i take a great picture, it’s going to have to be deleted if it is not discernably from here in the UK or something that could not be seen anywhere else. i can take macro shots of picket fence tops in victoria. heh.
so i am toootally jealous of people who have f-stops higher than 8 on cameras now. now that i know what an f-stop is. why is it called an f-stop anyway? focus stop? hmmm.. time to do some research.
or not! i am on IRC right now and krishen found the answer:
astHome: f means the ‘f-stop’ or the focal length of the camera lens the numbers denote the range of focus from the subject you are photographing… the larger the number the more in focus the objects in the foreground and the background will be… for example the number 16 will mean that the objects in the far background will be in focus… conversely, a number two will mean the background will be blurry (while your subject will be in focus)
i am staying with my cousin michelle. she lives in camden town which is a rather insane part of london on the weekend. there’s a market here which attracts what would appear to be half of london each saturday and sunday. i have never seen this many people. jeebus!
i met up with emily and met her friend corinne yesterday. we went to a house party but i was overtired and eventually retired before everyone else. today emily showed me some of the sights to see in London, but while doing this she got me really stoked on seeing Prague. we saw the usual bits today — Thames River, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the gigantic ferris wheel, Trafalgar Square, and that big art exhibition. quite a day! after we went to corinne’s where a bunch of us hung out for the evening. corinne’s spanish boyfriend havier made us some fantastic spanish cuisine and i caught the last tube back here. this is the first time i have had unlimited time to do a post, so i am doing it! i have written most of the postcards already and still have some blank ones .. so if you want a postcard .. reply to that post below!
