The Nature of Inquiry
We thank NASA and Co for the continual reminder of the beauty of space. We thank h2g2's photographers for their continuing inquiry into the beauties of our planet for the Earth Edition. We're learning as we go. We also thank bobstafford, who will be back next week with more tips, because he's teaching us how to use our cameras. This week, Freewayriding will be showing us some fancy camerawork he undertook with the help of the local bee population. You go, guys and gals.
The Post Editor learned a photography trick this week. Being old and slow, and also unwilling to invest in an expensive camera with motor drive, the Editor was unable to capture action shots of Tammy the Chipmunk here. (Name change suggested by Willem from 'Chippy', much appreciated.) Tammy's too fast. But the camera does video….aha! Take a video, then frame-by-frame it to obtain the 'action shot'. Cool. Better pictures through technology.
We have wonderful photos in this week's issue. Why not send yours? This way, people will have a whole week to read and comment. You're archived, too. And you know what? Last month, 1200 whole people stopped by to admire the h2g2 Post. That's a bigger circulation than some small-town newspapers. Okay, you can't wrap fish in it, but it gets around, and the numbers are growing. To whoever tried to find the Post by putting smilies in the search box (twelve times), keep calm and carry on….
Meanwhile, here are some of this week's highlights:
Dig in, enjoy, leave messages. Send more photos, essays, stories, poems, reports of peculiar behaviour in the West Riding, etc. Also, a special request: anybody who's been in London these exciting days, please send photos. You'll know why. And have a great week out there!
