Yup. There's a bit more to it e.g. setting the empty and full indicators, but it's not complicated at all. Of course, you can always do what my grandfather did - a dip stick
hrmmm... i'd need to get a mighty big stick...



i classify a water tank as an 'every day object'.

and here's a few other everyday objects that I prepared earlier

This is my kind of thread...
It is all in the overlooked things.

A few for now,

works for me!

If I'm being really honest, I just wanted a place to put up all my photos.

Having said that, it's very reassuring to know I'm not the only one who 'shoots nothing' or turns 'nothing into something'

I really enjoy looking at the mundane in a different light.

absolutely love the elastic bands shot jools!

your bbq squash (?) looks very appetizing Tom!

a lot of the jewellery is my own (another of my hobbies). i haven't felt too inspired to make much lately although if i manage to take a photo of every piece I make maybe I'll get bored and go back to making more. *snarf* I've got enough supplies, that's for sure.

OK. That's a good sized tank. Just how many acres have you got there, WG?

Or ...I know ... you could tap against the side of the tank and see where the sound changes or feel for the temp change at the waterline. That's quite accurate

I would not want to get in the way between you and another lens

yeah that's we do for the metal tank - tap against the side. and for the concrete we go for the temp change. but the temp one, we have to wait for hot days to check.

that's right - i may *seem* friendly but all bets are off if you're standing in the way of that DA 1000/1.2 going for $50...

here's some more everyday objects for those who don't own watertanks..

I can't remember if this was a vase or the base of a lamp in a hotel room. I think it might have been the base of the lamp...


another necklace..


a pair of earrings


and some wallpaper


all taken on the kx, with a m 50 1.4. the jewellery shots all had a +4 filter on them I think. click on images for exif data

I'll have to try squash that way.

Haha.. yes I have lots of jewellery (but then again most girls do...... ) - part of the reason why I make instead of buy. It works out cheaper in the long run And yes, I do wear them - although not necessarily altogether.

I also really like that lightbulb shot Tom!
