    My ex gf's mum keeps chickens, she's always had a tradition of giving them old-lady names. One year we got 4 and named one each (me, my gf, her mum and step-dad). I instantly thought "i want to get a Barnavelda and name it Esmerelda". Guess what? When they got the chicks, we drove up to their house, the step-dad had already named his Esmerelda. Damn his ESP. So I named mine Agatha, as in Agatha Crispie, that poor bird spent the rest of its life being called "Crispy Chicken".
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Wow, I am new round here, and taking part in my first "Let's all shoot one camera" and I thought is was based on the old adage, "Don't count your chickens before they hatch". I love that it based on a semantic nuance...haa

    Well I guess I should add a chicken comment. We had chickens when I was a kid. Great times! One of the best names of the many chickens we had was Plain Pig and Orange Pig. Both hens couldn't stop eating, one was drab and gray (Plain Pig) the other was drab and gray but with a little orange on her feathers (Orange Pig)......I know, not as funny as the rest of you are....but oh well, gotta add my chicken namess to the thread....I've tons more

    And the 'Sch' is not pronounced like in School but rather like "Shinken". OK, keeping that in mind here comes my ham duty:

    There is some kind of martial arts called Ken Shin Kan (I think) and I once saw an advertising poster where they wrote it wrong and advertised a sport called Shin-Ken. Well when I saw it I thought THAT might be an interesting kind of sports to punch ham and then afterwards ... eat it? And if I think about competitions where the fighters are introduced in the ring ... think of: "Welcoooooooooooooome Heinriiiiiiiiiiiich the ham hammer Schmidt!" ... oh no, I should stop here, it is not easy to play with words in a foreign language. But at least I could contribute something about ham

    I will chicken the camera to the next one on the list in the next few days as I took the images last weekend ... Oh, just to make sure that I did it right everyone was supposed to take 10 images?

    Cheers

    Well done...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Ruediger,

    If you took ten shots, then please put down that ham sandwich and chicken yourself over to the nearest film store and buy another roll for us!

    No, I took two shots as I wrote. Sorry, internal IT folks joke ... There are 10 kinds of people, those who understand binary and those who don't.

    But honestly, I took two images, one with the main subject in the middle and one where I did not press the shutter too hard to be unable to reframe after focusing

    But here is another chicken ...

    Ken: How do you like my new camera.
    Barbie: It is chic Ken.

    OK sorry, that was another lame one too. I will stop this now. Promised!

    Cheers

    The next one on the list, would that happen to be me? Or did I miss any updates of http://www.apug.org/forums/viewpost.php?p=1482147 ?
    Anyway, I'll start thinking about the 00000010 shots that I am supposed to take.

    Yes, as far as I can tell you are the next on the list. May the chicken be with you.

    Lame perhaps, but you were able to pullet off.
