Deep in thought.

I think this photo looked better in B&W than color.

The Goat Box™ comes complete with one Goat™.  Some assembly required.

It's not wise to upset a wookiee.

Little Roderic taking a break from his goating.

I didn't realize there was a screw sticking up from the board until I developed this photo.  It's been fixed and the goat doesn't appear to have been injured by it.

Phylla at nearly 3 years of age and just over 3 months old.  Notice how her face has become longer and more triangular, her horns started curving outwards instead of in, her waddles have become quite prominant, and her coloration has darkened considerably.

It's also interesting to see the difference between the cameras, the Samsung NX2000 with an APS-C (370 mm2) sensor on the left and a Panasonic FZ-18 with a 1/2.5" (24.7 mm2) sensor on the right.

On the first: "Of all the fields, in all the world, you had to walk into mine." ^_^ (Did you see the BD transfer of Casablanca? Really quite impressive work - the detail captured on the original negatives must've been far better than we'd generally seen before. I just wish they'd had multiple audio tracks at the production stage, even if it were to be released in mono, for future use, but I suppose that wouldn't have flown with the beancounters)

Very cute kid. And that's probably about the only time I'll ever say that. =:)

Mmm, sensor size makes a tremendous difference. I don't regret having owned the TZ-5, but it did strike me at the time that whilst it trumpeted 9MP, if you went pixel-peeping, there really wasn't any useful detail beyond more like 2MP. And FSM knows, I'd've much preferred keeping that precious sensor area for fewer photosites of four times the area, given its rather lacklustre high ISO performance. Still, sensor tech progresses apace, with phones driving development at a furious pace - just consider the difference between an iPhone 3G and an iPhone 5s photo. =:D The future of photography will be quite interesting, and I suspect, more driven by processing than by raw sensor sensitivity - if you could take a big stack of very noisy images and process those nigh immediately into a single, clean image, you'd gain very good results, despite a tiny sensor. (Not for rapid moments, where the scene's changing greatly, but that's still a valid technique for a lot of use cases, and indeed, I wouldn't be surprised to find the latest generation of phones employ cunning techniques like that, given their read-out rates has escalated to the point of the iPhone 6 able to offer 240fps video)
