For CAT and anyone else who wants to see. My Nativity keeps growing, and I haven't ventured out to get this year's addition, yet.

QUOTED IMAGE

Very nice, Becky.

I grew up calling the the little manger scene a 'nativity.' When I married Lois she referred to it as a 'kresh.' I much prefer the term I grew up with, but around here, people don't know what I'm talking about.

Ours is plain white porcelain, and it's sitting on our patio table so we can see it from the family room, kitchen, dining room, and living room. (House is U-shaped in the back)


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

It worked fine for me. It's cute.

Bax! What a cutie.

Strange that Permie can't see it. The file is a .mov and I know Windows Movie Maker doesn't recognize the file. The reason I posted was to hear feed back on seeing it to get an idea what other software might be needed. It took forevah to load up to Smuggy probably due that I shot in HD. Will have to do some more testing and research.

Thank you and you and you. This just grew by 2 olive trees and 6 more figurines. The place I buy from is down sizing and selling all their collectibles at 75% off. I got for my annual budge about 3 years worth. :mrgreen: but now I'll have to find a new place that sells them, locally.

I grew up calling them "kresh" also but I spell it crèche. The porcelain white sounds gorgeous. And this one is my big one a far as number of pieces, total I have 3 plus 3 of just the Holy Family.

Worked a bit with live view and the 100 macro this morning. The heated bird bath is a bit frosty around the edge (about 10% crop):

Long long day today, I drove down to east Sussex last night (about 160 miles) to stay with a friend and up this morning at 04:30 to be at the estate office for 05:30. A dawn session in the cold netted 1 x Fallow, 1 x Roe 1 x Muntjac and a fox. A full house.

It is pretty cold and wet here at the moment and the ground is pretty much 100% clay so the new stalk mobile looks anything but new :-)

Good Evening :D

Had a very busy, fun and rewarding day today. :D The people we were dealing with were extremely stoked, and the whole atmosphere of the Drop-In Centre was elevated above its normal level. We had TV crews in, carolers and musicians. There was a special meal put on for the clients. I can't even begin to describe how great the day was. :D

We were not as busy as we first feared we might be, but we still did 488 shoots, and printed out nearly 600 photos. There were 8 stations set up, with 2 photogs per station. Myself and the photog I was shooting with shot 90 people or groups in 6 hours. We had 20 memory cards between us, using one per shoot, returned to us with the photo for the people we were shooting. We actually ran out of cards a few times, as the folks doing the editing and printing were overwhelmed. I pulled out those old small cards that I had kept for some reason, the old 256K and 512K ones, as they were just fine for this. I think I will look to pick up a few more of these small cards that folks have laying around and don't use, before next year.

I am in for certain next year, and would encourage anyone here to join up with a local Help-Portrait group, or even begin their own.

Sounds like a fantastic day! What is the official name of the organization? I'm not finding anything in my area and thought maybe I'm typing in the wrong thing. :confused: Or maybe there isn't any such group around here.

Maybe you can get some sleep in between now and then. ;)

You can search for groups in your area, or you can start your own. There is getting to be lots of resources available to help the individual groups worldwide.

Good work Jim! Our North Bay group had more volunteers than they could use, so some of us just donated supplies like photo paper and cartridges. It can get rather expensive to put one of these on.

Very nice! Congrats on the new additions too. I didn't quote the updated pictures, but I saw them. :)
I like that you have a dog in the scene, lol. I need to get me one of those, LOL.

Yeah, the costs can get up quite high. I am not certain, but our ink and paper costs were in the neighbourhood of $2,000 or more. We have gotten a fair bit of corporate sponsorship from a couple local camera shops (printers and ink), stationary stores (paper), Costco (gift certificates for whatever), and the like. The Drop-In Centre arranged food for us through their donors, the chief cook came in or her day off just to cook for us, and provided a great bevy of yummy foods. The staff their was extremely helpful and very upbeat type people to work with. They were excited to have us there, and we were just as thrilled to actually be there.

Never too many volunteers here. If we were to get more, we would just branch out and set up at more locations in order to reach more people who are unable or unwilling to come to us. We did have one satellite group set up at a smaller family oriented support centre nearby.
