Am I crazy, or is this just a very light headed moment when I ask, are we going to go round again in September?
Are the any interested starters.?
Maybe this has been mentioned already and I missed it.
Must be the very light headed moment indeed. Did you miss too much sleep, do you experience severe stress? Or is it a family disorder?

I'm in for September. At this point I'm doing the rest of the year.

Wasn't there a Single in September last year? Does there need to be a revised title? Also this month repaap put the name of the lens he was using into his album title, which I thought was a good idea. With so many people this month it was hard to keep track of who was using what.

I think I am in again. September can't be any worse than August, can it?

TIme crunch for me - Sept is going to be a real tough one. If i do it i'm not using a telephoto - FA50 or FA35 maybe.. not decided if I can commit, the past couple days have been pretty hard to keep up.

Yes there was a single in September last year. Stillshunter started it all, as an attempt to cure his LBA, but in retrospect, it just fuelled everyone elses LBA, when they saw how well others lenses were performing.

September promises Spring in the southern hemisphere, and autumn (fall) in the northern hemisphere, good lighting and conditions for us all in other words, and more daylight than we know what to do with.

How can we not participate, we've survived earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, heatwaves and torrential rains, and a near nuclear meltdown.

I'll be in if there are enough others. I do have my wife's 50th birthday bash to arrange, but that will be featured in single in October!

Would it be worth a change in the format?
Maybe a theme for the month. Say Spring for us, Autumn for you? Any ideas?

Bugger me...not bloody sure if it's the hot lemons or the Chivas shandied with Tullamore Dew! I'm in again, might as well see the ruddy year out .too cobbers! Hung for a sheep and all that!

I still have my SiS album from last year on PF, so will probably have to name this one SiS 2011 since we are goin' 'round again. Or I could rename the old one Sep 2010? Any thoughts.

Might go with the kit lense (never used it yet after 18 months) like Tim used a month ago. Just to see, then again the M50 1.7 hasn't been used for a while, don't know.

Cheers and good luck all, Paddy

PS Took today off work and feeling better already, and Mum's fine. Thanks all!

I'm not sure about September. Don't have a clue which lens I'd use. I only have two long lens, two short zooms, and the 50mm. I don't cotton to carrying around that 100-500mm Samyang, that sucker is heavy!!

I'm in. Don't know yet which lens or what subjects to try and feature. You May get a solid month of The Hound, at 200mm.. Do I Really want to do that? .................................. Like the end of each previous month, the end of August is kicking my ass as far as interest goes but the new month somehow renews my enthusiasm for the project. I do have to say that if the original intent was to curb LBA, it has for me because I'm using what I have. As far as LWA, not so much.

Hi everyone. I won't be participating in September (or October), but not because I don't want to. I'm off for two months to explore Korea, Russia and Mongolia and while I'll be taking heaps of pictures, it just won't be practicable to upload regularly, let alone comment on others' contributions.

I would like to emphasize how much I've enjoyed SiA, and how much I've learned too. To all who have helped me there, knowingly or otherwise, my sincere thanks. I do hope there is an opportunity to rejoin in November. Rod.

Have a good trip sunshine, been a ball, and come back safe. How about a small compilation of shots for us all when you're back please, see you come Nov?

Cheers Paddy

Ode tae a Lense


Another month comes tae an end,

And we must part another friend

Nae more the light for me yeel bend

Till next we meet again.




Precision glass in case entwined,

Wee plastic beastie well aligned

Nae better friend this month yeel find

We’ll meet agin’ , ye ken




Yev walked wi’ me on ev’ry day

And helped me oot when gang astray

Noo treasured I’ll nae thrae away

But keep ye until then




Another beckons frae the dark

Another wants tae make it’s mark

And so yeel rest ma wee fine lark

Till next we meet again.




Paddy 2011
