Carnival 2006 #9: Funtime

Been really busy of late really working on my thesis so no shots from me for a while. I wasn't in a working/study mode this morning so I thought I'd cheer myself up by posting an ad that I've been meaning to post for sometime now.

My very good friend Bolanle has been working very hard on an Art exhibition for charity. She approached me to contribute some of my works for auction along with some other artists. The title of the exhibition is "Words are not enough" and you can see more details of it here. I strongly urge you all to come as you'll not only get a chance to see good work in 3D but also a chance to give to charity. Tickets are on sale on the website through the "buy now" link at the top.

Very nice indeed.
You've got some nice shots here, it's funny as I visit random photoblogs it seems the one I always stick on and really spend time looking at are the ones where the photographer is using a "pro" of "semi-pro" level camera. That is not to say that good shots can't be had with a P&S, just the best (to me) seems to come from a dSLR.
