So put the date 31-12-2011 in one cell. Put the number 500 in another cell. Add the two cells in a third cell and format the cell as date.

Then you will see the exact date of day 500.

Thank heavens we've got plenty of time to prepare for this one.
Wow, that's a handy trick, Allan. So, if I shoot my Tam 200-500 (taped at 500mm, of course) on May 14th, 2012, I need to post it on the 2011 Day Prime thread, right? ...
NEX-3, 6 | A55 | A700 | many, many lenses ;-)

Well, that was the joke on page 4, I think.

Well done all! A very productive day
Will post my shots tomorrow. Had very little time today, but managed to make shots. No time to process though.
Day 15 tomorrow , I don't expect many contributions. But hey, Monday is Day 16: let's get creative and fishy.

Don't forget: today is Day 15 so tomorrow is:

DAY 16


So let's do something FISHY.

And if you joined Challenge your Creativity, why not combine these challenges? Shoot a number of 16mm photos of your subject; post one in the CYC, and one here!

Jamesmd.
By looking at you number 7 photo I can see several mounted police officers at the park. It is Spain a police state? I live in Chicago and we have 12,000 police officers but your rarely see one unless you need them. My great-grandparents came from San Sebastian to Northwestern México in the 1800, now the American Southwest and I love Spain with all my heart, but other than the Franco years I would like to think of it as a free country without police officers at every corner.

Sorry for the change of subject, I know on Dyxum we are to talk only about the merits of pictures but my guess is, once in a while we should discuss what it is in them.

SVM. Chicago.

You've never been to New York City apparently: a policeman on almost every crossing.
Anyway, three policemen on horseback hardly make it a police state.
