Busy doing nothing.

I have a magnet on my fridge that reads "We lied, size matters"!
How true in this case.
Still I'm not knocking my trusty little sony. It's a good companion that gives me hours of pleasure and requires little in return. And before your dirty little minds can run away with that comment, let me just state for the record I'm not mechanically inclined!
I had originally planned to go windsurfing today but at my level it's soooooooooo much work. I know I won't improve if I don't put in the hours, but the waves have been big all week and this was my first chance to go & watch the big boys. Work or pleasure....I chose the later.
Ka-boom-look at that white water exploding behind him. So if you hear 'it's not the size of the wave, but how you ride it', does that actually mean 'we lied, size matters'?!
And finally, look at the plates of meat(feet)on this bloke! This is Pato coming safely off the rocks yesterday with a mate who has feet like a rabbit! I mean that in the best possible way, because you know what they say about men with big feet......

I sometimes have difficulty in making comments about your surfing pictures (a) cos they're always so good and (b) I don't understand the language of the surfer so it's a problem to come back with a witty riposte.
HOWEVER, let me say je t'adore the huge zoom lens and, as your Dad taught me, size does matter when it comes to lenses. I think your brother would agree with me too, it's all in the genes (or jeans)size does often matter. When you talk of being satisfied with your little Sony - you remind me of Aunty Vera (a spinster of this parish to the uninitiated). I will say no more on family matters.

You have a really nice blog here and take some wonderful pictures. I hope to be able to check back regularly. Good job.

Oh my god....Mater70 well done! Though you might have to work a bit more on your encrypted messages as I decoded them with no problem!

Jackel: Thanks for the compliments and the cluster map idea :-) And remember-all you need is love, love, love is all you need.

You'll be surprised to know that your little Sony with 12x optical zoom takes photos roughly equivalent to a big 420mm tele-lens.
And if you add full digital zoom (see my photos at Kanaha on my blog for example), that goes up to 840mm.
Without even mentioning the crazy prices of those tele-lenses.

What changes is the quality of the photo that will be inferior (even with the optical zoom only).
If you need magazine quality photos, than size matters.
But for the use we do (take photos and put them on the web), our little Sony rocks.

Cammar, I'm sorry it's not often I say this about you, but that blog totally sent me to sleep - boring, boring, boring. Although, I'm glad that you're glad about your little rocking Sony.

You'll be telling us next why penguins feet don't freeze!

Do not wish to take up blog space but well done Sharon for the speedy interpretation - you still remain a child of my bowels!!!!

Where did the Jackal come from? His fangs could do with a little whitening but like the cute ears.

Mater70, I agree with you about the boredom of my comment, but they call me "il professore" (the teacher) and sometimes I have to keep up with my nicknames...

mater70 said...

Sharon didn't tell me you were called Il Professore - she told me you were called the Italian Stallion. I need to know which of you to believe.

At my age I get easily confused.

cammar said...

I'm also know as the Phenomenom and I'm about to become the Johan Cruijff of the waves.

Different nicknames for different skills...

mater70 said...

God, you are soooooo brilliant (in your owwn mind)........

What's the name for the guy who's into McVities?

cammar said...

Oh, that's just me.

And that's my favourite!
