Ghost Town ?

Ghost Town ?

Latest Series of 8ight images and this weeks theme…

Early days of Digital  – Eight of 8ight

The Specials thought that Coventry was like living in a ghost town! So I’m not sure what they would make of this?

Anyway todays image is the last in the series of digital images shot on my very first digital camera, the Olympus C3000z.
Just to prove that it is still working nine years later this image was shot yesterday.

These days the camera is in demand for those interested in infra red photography. Apparently they are easily modified and there is even a WEBSITE with full instructions on how to modify them by replacing the infra red filter with a piece of glass. I have thought about doing it but haven’t got the heart.

A new series of 8ight begins tomorrow.

Early days of Digital  – Five of 8ight

The fifth of 8ight images in the early days of digital series. Eight images taken all those so many years ago with my first ever digital camera the Olympus C3000Z. It was the year 2000 the millenium bug was a non event. The world didn’t end and the Olympics came to Sydney. Happy times.
Living there for those two weeks was a joy to behold. People actually spoke to each other.

Early days of Digital  – Four of 8ight

A series of eight images taken with the Olympus C3000Z my first digital camera. A far cry from the newly announced Olympus EP1 must have. Or is it?

When attending the movies in the outback, dust can play play havoc with your popcorn but at least you don’t have to put up with noisy patrons and mobile phones!!

Early days of Digital  – Two of 8ight

Dog Fence at Cameron corner in NSW or is that QLD maybe it was SA?
The second image in this weeks series of 8ight images taken with my very first digital camera the Olympus C3000Z.

A 3.3megapixel camera that cost nearly $2000 in the year 2000.
My image of the Dog Fence  was featured full page in the Overlander 4WD magazine. I was paid the pricely sum of nothing but was given a free head torch for my trouble! I apologise to all you pro’s out there trying to make a living and promise not to submit any more images unless paid at least a $1000!!
