Canon EOS Rebel T2i/550D Digital Field Guide
Canon EOS Rebel T2i/550D Digital Field Guide
by Charlotte K. Lowrie
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A very thorough overview of a great product., 4 April 2011
This is very much a book that is for those people who want to know how to use everything on the Rebel T2i/550D.
So the bulk of it is for using the pre-settings on the camera.
I am only interested in using the camera on manual, and so a huge bulk of this book is unnecessary for my requirements and I'm more interested in a creative photography book that I bought along with this.
However, if you are interested in knowing how to use all of the pre-settings and how to get somewhere with the manual setting, then you can't go far wrong with this book. It tells you everything you need to know about every aspect of the camrea along with photographic examples of what each setting/techniques will result in. And if that is what you're looking for then this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swedish Folk Prettiness, 9 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Ghost Town (MP3 Download)
I bought this for the b-side cover of Fever Ray's "When I Grow Up". But this has led me to since buy First Aid Kit's album.
Beautiful female voices over simple folk-guitar.
Relaxing when you need it and also fun and uplifting depending on your mood.

5.0 out of 5 stars welsh patagonian happiness, 9 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Gyrru Gyrru Gyrru (MP3 Download)
I bought this after seeing the film Seperado which is about Gruff Rhys's journey to discover Rene Griffiths in the Welsh settlements in Patagonia.
A happy driving song that encapsulates all I love about Gruff Rhys and The Super Furry's music. I love the fact it's in Welsh and I don't know what he's singing.

4.0 out of 5 stars fairytale enchantment, 9 Jan. 2011
I bought this because I wanted to listen to the music that my parents had on record and my sister and I used to imagine stories and dance and act them out to. It provided the perfect soundtrack to a child's playful imagination.
Decades later it still does. It makes wonderful listening. I find myself transported to faraway lands of my imagination.
I am no expert on classical music and cannot comment on the recording from a technical perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple photo presentation, 13 Aug. 2010
I already have two of these traditional albums in purple and pink. They are a great size and perfect for keeping standard sized photos in a simple format. There is something therapeutic about picking out the best photos and taking pride in them by seperating them from all the others and being able to show them to friends rather than relying on a computer screen, or sitting down on the setee with a book filled with great memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and effective, 13 Aug. 2010
I buy these photo corners because I prefer traditional photo albums. In this age of 100s digital photos stored on computers, it's very enjoyable to pick out the best and stick them into an album that can be sat down with on the setee and pored over.


English Teaching and the Moving Image
English Teaching and the Moving Image
by Andrew Goodwyn
Edition: Paperback
Price: £28.98

4.0 out of 5 stars The way English teachers need to be thinking, 9 May 2010
It is taking a while for many English teachers to acknowledge the need and power of film in the English curriculum. here, a strong argument is presented for the place of film to be integral in the English classroom. Not only is the argument for this presented, but also suggestions and guidance on how this may be done.

Starting with a historical consideration of film in English, this book goes on to suggest how it may be developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plants, illustrations, stories., 9 May 2010
This review is from: Garden Wisdom (Hardcover)
Beautifully illustrated, this book wonderfully combines tales of gardening through history and 50s style illustrations to accompany them. So if you want a bit of an insight into the great gardeners thoughts over the centuries, or if you just want an aesthetic pleasure when the rain prevents you from going into your own garden (or probably both) then this is the book for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Instant art, 9 May 2010
These simple frames are easy to use and carry the vinyl and cover easily enough together so that you don't need to seperate the two.

Vinyl cover art was always carefully crafted and considered, and displaying some of them in frames like this is great - all we need now are frames that allow us to display those wonderful gatefold designs.
