Title • four lenses

After a few days of really struggling to take any decent shots I took two today that I'm quite happy with, this one and another that I'll put up tomorrow. Both of them are straight shots, but this is the more odd of the two.

As a partial aside: there's an interesting discussion going on at blog.photoblogs concerning monitor calibration, and the reason I mention it is that on my machine this picture looks great (IMO) – deep, rich colours, and so on – but on my wife's laptop, on which most of my images normally look ok, this one looks rather flat and lifeless. I'll be interested to hear what you think.

On a more mundane note: I've done some more recoding to this popup to allow you to directly navigate between entries. The '<<<' at the far left of the bar at the top of the screen takes you to the comments for the previous image, and on any other comment popup other than the one for the latest image 'latest' returns you to the most recent comments and '>>>' takes you to the next. I'm not actually sure this has much practical use but thought I'd mention it in case you didn't notice.

And continuing my quest to offer some exposure for those sites outside the Top 100 at I thought I'd give a mention to momentánea, a photoblog run by Eduardo Arcos in Mexico City. My favourites include timbres rojos, en Barcelona, 6T, and switches. Eduardo also has an easily navigable archive page not too dissimilar from my own thumbnails page. Enjoy.
