Yes I agree trees only have those flowers for such a short amount of time, But they can offer so many possibility's while here. And the basket has promise maybe a different angle or tighten the crop up some. The table has an interesting pattern and color but it take attention from the basket.
At least that my opinion of this last one ;) and I like the softness you added to your second picture of tree flowers Good job on that.:D

Thanks E James
I agree with you on the basket composition, That could have been better
I was trying to incorporate the table in a specific way.
The table was taken out of the attic and dusted off since the early 70's
You may have noticed the psychedelic colors
Perhaps I should use it in an other setting

And I have this little table that needs to start being used.

A strange little plant that kept growing even when there was snow and the temp went below 0.
How it did that is because I think it is located near my basement and it kept the ground from freezing.

I was bleeding when I shot this. I fell down, busted my 70-210 f/4 off at the mount and did some pretty serious damage to the top and eyepiece of the 1Ds. It's got a crack in the magnesium, and the viewfinder is pushed downward about 2-3mm. Of course, it still works just fine.

The Sigma 24-60 f/2.8 can take pretty great pictures, but it requires some coaxing.

Eyecup Ec-II on pg.168 in manual, And if you search you might find the part list pdf for the 1Ds somewhere here on potn. Some one had posted several canon cameras part list.
Good to hear the camera still works.

Nice capture up there Elmo! Was that with the Sigma? Is the lighting natural?

This is the exact piece that I ordered from Amazon for my 1Ds2, which is an exact/direct replacement for the original, which will work with the 1Ds1 as well:

In a recent vacation, I had a chance to dust off the old 1Ds and go take some pictures...it's been a while since I put this camera to some work.

Unfortunately the troubles started on day 2 of the trip, with the camera refusing to work intermittently. Guess I'd describe it here to see if anyone can help, but I'd be hunting down a local service center tomorrow as well.

See...from time to time, the camera throws up a 'CF Card Error' message in the top LCD screen. The camera then says the CF card is not formatted and prompts me to format. When I attempt to do so, the activity light goes on but the camera seemingly locks up in this manner and does not format the card at all. Sometimes I get an 'Err 02' message in the top LCD screen and sometimes it's an 'Err 99'. Essentially when all this happens, turning the switch to 'Off' does not power down the camera and I need to remove the battery or the CF card to do so.

On some occasions the camera actually allows me to shoot a photo. The activity light goes on and stays on, and the camera freezes up again. These issues continued to the point that my camera was completely unusable towards the end of the last day of the trip, and I borrowed my Dad's camera to photograph instead. Replacing the battery with another, or changing the CF card, or even changing the lens does not resolve the issue. And then, this evening, my camera has seemingly begun to work again.

So this is very sad indeed. Nevertheless, despite my poor vision (uninspired and severely out of practice) and camera troubles, I did return from the trip with some photos. But I certainly hope these are not some of the last photos to ever come from my beloved 1Ds. Considering the age, I do accept that something serious could be going on, and repairs may not make sense financially. However, let's keep our fingers crossed on that.

The recent trip to Wilsons Promontory and surrounds (located in Victoria, Australia) probably served to whet our appetite more than anything else. This is because many parts of the park were badly affected by the recent storm and flooding, and rendered inaccessible to most tourists. We certainly need to make another visit in due time.

The weather on day 1 of the trip was hardly welcoming: pretty dreary, pretty wet. Photographing landscapes was difficult because we had to contend with blown-out skies. The sun was finally out in the evening so I took a stroll out onto the main road from our motel at Yanakie. And then I saw this. I love rainbows.

Walking through the trail and past dense vegetation, I felt a sense of desperation. The forest was remarkably beautiful, yet I was unable to produce anything satisfactory nor representative of the area. The dimness of light added a little more challenge to the act of photography. Ultimately it felt right to just work with the light, instead of against it.

As you'd imagine, I was again pretty desperate here, to be looking for abstracts considering the sheer vastness of the beach and sea. There were throngs of people everywhere, fishing, surfing, having lunch, or just roaming around. I saw these puddles and patterns in the sand, left behind by the receding tide. At once they reminded me of Chinese calligraphy, though not as intricate. Nevertheless, I made the attempt to reproduce the effect of the puddles in a photo.

The areas which we traversed are characterised by scenes such as this: wide, sweeping landscapes dotted with trees, cows and sometimes bales of hay. The light at sunset added some much-needed 'oomph'.

5. Sunrise

Now I wouldn't get up before sunrise to go to work. However, getting up before sunrise just to photograph the sunrise simply felt 'right'. Fearing that my sunrise/ sunset times were incorrect, my Dad and I rushed to this location. We were well on time to watch the sun go up over the horizon.

We passed through the little town of Fish Creek on the way up to our motel at Yanakie on the first day but didn't stop to take a look. However I got a quick glance at something which I thought was so hilarious that it deserved a second visit, so we stopped by on the way back home in Melbourne. The mullet sculpture resting at the top of the Promontory Gate Hotel is almost iconic, but it just seemed wrong to me. It looked like a ginormous fish that had died many days ago and was flung up onto the building to bake in the sun. Complete with tattered pectoral and tail fins and stunned eyes, it was literally 'LOL' funny.

So that's all for now. Let's hope the 1Ds will live to serve on another trip.

Good day folks, and thanks. The camera is currently at the service center. The person who received my camera at reception was probably a technician stepping in help ease the length of the queue (which was like 5 people).

Fortunately (or unfortunately) the camera promptly demonstrated the error in front of the receptionist and he seemed to know what was going on. Citing a possible malfunctioning circuit board, the cost to repair would be near $400. If it were just the CF card contacts, then the bill would be less.

Got to say I felt a little torn at that time. $400 is quite a lot of money to put forward to repair an old camera (especially since other things could start to malfunction from here on), however considering how much the 1Ds is actually worth to me, the choice was fairly straight forward. They will check the rest of the camera over to make sure nothing else is about to give way. But as we all know, it's usually difficult to predict if something in a camera is going to malfunction.
