Game, set and match

Another short post due to my bad back, It was to be a rant about an on line family tree service who offered me a free trial and the charged me £35. But after 2 days of strongly worded emails I have got my money back, so I will leave their reputation unblemished, for now.

I did manage to pop around some blogs yesterday, I miss reading them daily but it is great catching up all in one go.

The shot today has not been tampered with, other than for exposure. It shows a match head at the moment of lighting, you can see the flame advancing over the head, leaving a black charred waste in its path.

That is probably one of the coolest shots I have ever seen! I want to know how you set it up and how you did it! Tell me everything...teach me teach me!

Wow, that's very clever! Hope you have a reasonably pain free weekend.

This has got to be the most amazing photo ever.

I was attracted to photography when I saw that one photo everybody knows - the drop of water that actually was the little drop that splashed back up, and the ripples from the original drop show. That moment, suspended in time was so amazing to me. I think I was 6 or 7 when I saw it.

This photo has the VERY same effect on me.

Hope you get the free trial for the genealogy sorted out, you'll find it addictive, believe me! I joined a site and then found out that not all sites have the same census info available, so that might be worth checking out. Then there is which is free, I haven't found this so good for census info but it is great for births/marriages/deaths. Super photo!
