I trust the Easter bunny was kind to you and left you with stacks of Chocolate to enjoy! Easter to me is a little like Christmas, besides the religious significance of these two occasions, I find the opportunity to hang out with family and friends enjoyable, maybe it’s the chocolate, or the alcoholic beverages that just happen to be consumed on these days, I find everyone is pretty happy and chillaxed! So make sure you not only enjoy your day, but take the opportunity to enjoy it with family and friends…
The title of this daily pic might upset a few Nikon lovers, I know that if my Nikon what going head to head with the Cannon at the Roundhouse Fremantle it is likely to come off second best. This Cannon is still fired at 1pm every day, and was originally so people could keep track of time. I am sure they only use blanks now (if that’s what they call them). However… on this occasion I took at shot of this Cannon with my Nikon!
The 5D mark III is expected to go on sale for over $4000. The new 5D only has a 22mp sensor whilst the Nikon D800 has 36mp and has a RRP almost a grand less! JB Hi Fi are said to have significantly cheaper prices than other local retailers if you’re looking at getting the Canon.
There is a rumour of Canon releasing an ‘X’ version with a 46mp sensor. We will wait and see!
The stocks are a device that was used for a form of physical punishment that also involved public humiliation. The offender would be locked into the stocks and the passing public would throw everything from rotten fruit to poo at them! The offender would be locked in the stocks day and night and a lot of people would die from heat exhaustion or hypothermia.
I really like the detail in the wood of this set of stocks, these ones are located in the Fremantle Round House.
