Anyone still out there?

In case anyone is looking for me, I’ll be enjoying life outside. Facebook decided to ban me for 7 days for showing an image with very feint blurry nipples. Then they insisted that I provide ID to prove who I am.

I decided that I didn’t want to do that.

Then I came to redbubble to remove my facebook profile link and once I did that it went German on me… all the text, ads, etc was German….

weird…

Camera for sale

I’m going to sell my Canon 5D Mk II that I had converted to infrared. Anyone interested?

It’s the super blue 590nm filter and It was converted in July 2014. Works a treat, just too heavy for me now. (Had a Sony converted, and it arrived today…)

Camera is in great condition and has only taken around 28,000 shots since I bought it in Sept 2011. I’ll throw in two or three batteries and three 16Gb Sandisk Extreme compact flash cards… Still have the boxes for both, and of course all the disks, charger, and other paraphernalia for the camera…

Also going to sell the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8 L II USM… same reason, too heavy.

Make me an offer.

If you’re on facebook you should be able to see these images that I’ve shot with the camera:

Calendars

Is anyone else having this problem? I don’t seem to be able to browse other people’s calendars, there are no arrows visible. Likewise I often don’t see browsing arrows when I go to the artist’s second latest upload, however I can see their third latest with arrows.

Just looking to see if there are other sufferers…

Firefox seems to be the problem, because I can see the arrows in Chrome… sigh

Okay, it seems to have righted itself now. It’s been so weird the last few days, and all of a sudden I can see the arrows!
