These are all shot with the Pentax DL and the kit lenses that come with it. First is the moon taken from an Interstate rest stop near Sedona, AZ.



Next is DJ hitting at Chase Field in Phoenix



These are the new pipes at the Freiburg Cathedral in Germany



The Griffon at Busch Gardens, VA



Finally a professor at William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA, circa 1800

Wow, I didn't think the DL had been around since the 1800s LOL. Thanks for joining in

What we know of as "photography" was invented by Louis Daguerre and revealed to the public in 1839, so "circa 1800" is a bit of a stretch. And even then, exposure times were measured in minutes, so capturing the image of a person walking down the street was still several years away. Even photographs of the (US) Civil War show considerable motion blur if someone is just turning their head.

I host a popular website on the War of 1812. (That's the Anglo-American War to those of you outside North America.) I used to get a lot of e-mails from students asking me for help with their homework. An assignment that teachers frequently gave was to search the internet for photographs of the War of 1812. I finally just put an item in my FAQs page, explaining that there's no such thing.

OK, OK, so it wasn't exactly 1800! How about 2008? What's 200 years compared to the age of the universe? In any case thanks for commenting.

Most (not all) people leave the exif data in the photos which will tell you the details (camera, settings etc). Get something like the free oPanda iExif viewer to unlock this info.
