The perfect chair for a stick-in-the-mud

Was out for a wander with the kids yesterday and for once I actually had the camera with me. When I saw this chair, forlornly abandoned on the Thames Estuary mudflats at Canvey Island, I couldn’t resist firing off a few frames. It was mid-afternoon and the sun was really harsh so the lighting was a bit challenging to say the least. When I went back, the tide was in, and the chair was hidden from view by the brackish, muddy waters.

Evocative, emotive, or just a boring shot of a broken chair and some unhealthy looking mud…….. Only you can decide how you view this.

onOne Software – DSLR Remote for Canon DSLR Cameras & iPhone

Imagine if you will an application that will allow you to control your Canon DSLR remotely using wireless networking.¬† I’m not talking about a wireless shutter release, I’m talking about Canon’s EOS Utility, available on your iPhone, to control a tethered camera from a completely different room (not sure why you’d really want to do this though).¬† It’s not the future, it’s been around for a while, but not content with it working as designed in the first place, the guys designing the software have now released a new version.

onOne Software – DSLR Remote for Canon DSLR Cameras & iPhone.

I saw this once before, but then my iPhone broke a little bit.  Actually, it broke quite a lot. Subsequent drama ensued when O2 (bless their cotton socks) refused to pay for it to be fixed, despite it only being a month or so outside of the 12 month warranty, and with 5 months remaining on my iPhone contract.

That aside, I now have a new job, and a new iPhone – Once I’ve checked the corporate policy regarding “suitable” applications for both the laptop and phone, I may well be giving this a whirl.
