Secret Squirrel: Can you link to those images and put smaller (1024 pixels wide or fewer and 100KB in total size or less) images in their places? 1600 pixel images break the tables for most monitors.

Nice shots though.

Another Spider Picture

Postposted on Sun Jul 11, 2004 1:22 pm

Hey, I was looking around the Photo Forum and saw the picure Falbay99 posted of a spider. I believe that is called a spitting spider. They are supposed to be harmless. But I guess they spit some sort of venom at their prey to catpure them. Here is a nasty little spider that I can't identify.

Image

I am pretty sure it's harmless but it looks menacing to me. I live in Texas and the only two venomous spiders are the Black Widow and the Brown Recluse. This isn't either but doesn't he look deadly?

lighthouse

Postposted on Sun Jul 11, 2004 7:35 pm

At a place called the blowhole, because of a hole in the rock that the waves get pumped up through there's a lighthouse.

Here it is:

What state is Black Mesa in?

Postposted on Mon Jul 12, 2004 3:45 pm

Sorry I live in San Antonio, Texas. But they do kinda look like those Black Mesa monsters from HL. Good catch!
But I do have another picture of something Black. I took it yesterday just after the one in my previous post. Here it is!

Image

I just moved closer to the country so my odds of surviving with these guys around may be slim. I also killed a brown recluse the other night.
I tried to snap some photos of it but it was too dark and they kept comming out blurry. He was about two times smaller than this Black Widow. I think I need a better camera.

I hope I don't hijack this thread but Element what is up with your "Website"??

You better check to see if it violates the forum rules or something.

Yes, that is the Jefferson Memorial.

I shot all the first one of the New York City skyline with a Nikon D100 and a Nikon 85mm f/1.4 lens. I shot the other two with the same camera and a Nikon 80-400 f/4-5.6 lens. I believe the exif data is preserved if anyone wants to look at that.

All of my pictures were with either my 300D or my A75 (the earlier ones were all with my A75). The EXIF data is intact for all of my shots, so if you want the particulars just save the pictures and and view the advananced properties.

Snapper: really nice shots.

A couple I shot today.

This guys' parking-lot time trials stopped shortly after I got there so this was one of the few i took:

I was trying to get a good angle on this bugger but he wouldn't quit moving.

Settings are in the EXIF data. Both cropped and resized.
