It has been a busy Summer and Fall with work and outdoor activities. I have neglected my fish friends. I still enjoying using my old Canon G1 for my calico fantail. With a piece toilet tissue paper folded over two times, I manage to diffuse much of flash when she swims right up to the front like that. It's a treat also to be able to show off the flip side of this goldfish.

Here is the most recent photo of my goldfish - a fantail, that I would like to submit to my portfolio. It is my favourite goldfish shot to date. I had to use a flash as this type of fish would not stay put. Using the a piece of tissue folded over 3 times gave the optimal effect. On top of that, the image was framed perfectly with the old Canon G1. As a specimen, it is somewhat less than ideal. The short tail fin is almost completely joined in the middle, and there seem to be a deformed anal fin. All of which contributed to her swimming unevenly. I hope to celebrate the 3 month mark with an updated shot from a Canon ELPH for comparison. The scales are much more pronounced now.

This story takes the reader through the two times James T. Kirk's travel back into Earth's past and fills in the gaps in between with some familiar faces from Star Trek canon and interesting new characters.
As a fan of the UFO genre, the written details were very easy to visualize. It gave the story a tone that was reminiscent of the early seasons of The X-Files and an ambiance similar to the Dark Skies TV series.
This was the first time I've read a new novel from Star Trek The Original Series and not been disappointed by it as I have been with The Next Generation relaunch.
Looking forward to what the author will come up with next.
