2. ## Monday morning QB

A photo assignment...and we still have a Monday morning Quarterback!!!!

The Center steps forward to check a blitz by the MLB (mike) and then checks L to help the G, T or blitzing outside LB...and the "H back" is still running a slide pattern!

p.s. should of sent the one of the grandkids cutting "patterns" out of the cookie dough!!

Here 1 is the length of your lens and 8 (1/8) is the diameter of your aperture. It would take 8 aperture diameters to equal the length of your lens. Therefore, the larger the number (8, 11, 16, 22) the smaller the aperture and the greater the depth of field. 1/8, 1/11, 1/16, 1/22, etc.

Clear as mud? When school's out I'll actually have time to take some pictures to make all of this less abstract. If you have any questions, don't hesitate. This all seems complicated at first, but is actually easy to master and it fits together like a simple puzzle.
That makes SO much more sense now!! Larger f-stop, smaller aperture always confused me. I didn't understand it was a fraction and as f-stop increases, the fraction grows smaller, the aperture grows smaller. Go it! Finally! Thanks!

Once again Tom, very perceptive! No cats, no dogs, no kids, one turtle, spiders, and a few dust bunnies is all

But where's the k-a-b-o-o-m? There's supposed to be an Earth-shattering KABOOM!?!???

Oh man!! You blinked! I think you blinked... yeah... ya blinked man! Now you have to repeat the whole process...!

I say, I do believe we have a sticky wicket there!

7. HOW TO PLAY CRICKET

Some people find the game of cricket difficult to understand. Perhaps the following will help:

The game is played by two groups.

The first group is in and the second group goes out.

Some of the group which is in, go out.

The group that is out, tries to get the group that is in, out.

When one of the group that is in, is out, he goes in and the next one goes out.

Then when all of the first group (except one) that is in, is out, the second group that is out goes in.

The first group now goes out and tries to get the second group, who now are in, out.

Only when both groups have been in and out twice is there a conclusion.

Now I think this makes perfect sense, but I'm struggling with focal length, depth and apertures, how come?

8. I shot all week and then found out what the assignment was today...
While in Vegas this past week we ran into a mob of Brits attending the Hatton-Mayweather fight. It was quite interesting.
Snapped a pic of this punter at the MGM Grand...

I'm sure this photo would be more balance without the bright light on the right side. I had the urge to crop but resisted. No critique needed.

Had a great week. I won over \$400 at black jack over 3 days. Then at the airport found \$15 worth of chips in my pocket. ARggh!..
dlearl can you cash them in for me? I'll give you \$5?

you forgot to add that when both groups are out they all go to the Inn for a warm stout or ale.

Good Burnszilla Sir,

A mob, isn't the normal collective noun for a gathering of Brits. It's usually a "colonisation", or a "administrative middle-class infrastructure" of Brits.

Wait a minute though, Hatton is from Manchester, so a collection of Mancs and boxing fans t'boot. I stand corrected, they probably were a mob. Just be glad they weren't scousers, otherwise you'd not have found those \$15 of chips in your pocket, they'd have nicked 'em. Probably had your trousers off you as well.

.. for which I apologize minimally. Question: Is it possible that we all might meet in Gillette for some photo-ops? I have enjoyed and learned from all and think that a wee gathering might be in order. Of course, Tom pays for no beer. -Bob (tasting ample samplings of his 60 litres of Christmas wine)

That sounds like it makes a lot of sense. Perhaps a workshop too?

13. If I can't make it, I'll send a picture with Hodag.
Here is my pattern.

There is usually a forum gathering during the national... just watch the forum postings near rally time
