Try the pics now, they should work.

I picked up a Nikon D3100. I fully expect this camera to get destroyed here. As a matter of fact I am on my second one already. I am very hard on my gear... All of these were taken with the kit lens, but I have some more on the way.

And here's some more:

African Flowers:



and:


A shanty town:


Fixed this picture, Trying to take a picture while geting tossed around the back of the helo:

A famous photographer once said something along the lines of , "if you want to take better pictures stand in front of more interesting stuff" .

I think you have that part down COLD Kav. Great pictures that you know only a handful of people could ever take. :cool:

That I am. Things are not bad here are all. It's a strange place to go to. But you can't beat the food.

Here's a few more from Africa:

I found this guy hanging out under one of the A/C units here. So I ran to my shop and he was nice enough to pose for this shot. He's a Red-billed Firefinch:



Leaving one of the dusty landing zones:



And last but not least, Camels! In the wild no less.
