This is is one of those, "now for something completely different" posts. It was inspired by firstly photo fridays experimatal topic and secondly by boredom (I am currently spending 4 hours a day in a bus travelling the backroads of ghana.
This is a collage of available light images taken on a very misty morning, from a "moving" bus.

This is one of this " creative accidents". I used picasa's "I'm feeling lucky filter" on a chronically under-exposed photo (I sometimes do this just to see what is there!) and got the characteristic blocky "heat noise" you get in most lower level lighting/long exposure digital images, suddenly formed a beautiful pattern/texture. The art of such imperfections can be beautiful, at least sometimes.
The original under-exposed image.

Looking along the central range of New Caledonia
Most modern digital cameras store a lot of information in the jpeg file header. This is normally referred to as EXIF information, not all image software reads all of this information. I have found a very nice EXIF reader by Ryuuji and don't be put off by the japanesse, I'm sure you will find the links.

This photo show a mosquito, They breed them large up here in New Guinea, many carry malaria. Unfortunately it is an all to common problem for photographer who like to go out and dusk & dawn when the mosquito's are at their most active. The other thing of interest is the small reference card that is a great accessory to your flickr card. It can be laminated and use to help provide size reference for macro and close up photos. This mosquito has a wing span of over 15mm, making her probably female and a candidate for carry malaria.

I'm currently working in New Guinea, at Lihir Island, there are no GSM
services for my mobile phone and I don't have my own access to the net. Yet there is public access available via some shared PCs in the mining camp. Ii is a bit like a low bandwidth internet cafe I guess, anyway it works fine for basic email, and does mean that if i carefully resize an image I can still easily post it to my blog. I have used flickr's email submission system and the special address they have generated for me (it is a unique address for each person) When I email to this address not only is the photo stored in flicker, my email message is used to create a blog enter in the blog of my choice. If you are reading this it must have worked.
If you have a flickr account and a blog make sure you set it up. Then even with the slowest, lowest speed, most basic connection to the net you will be able to keep photo blogging.
PS: It worked but sorry about the format it came out (not sure if it the email of flickr to blame). I had to edit out the extra HTML break lines
