Inside by marthasmoke Inside by marthasmoke
Inside the doors are sealed to love
Inside my heart is sleeping
Inside the fingers of my glove
Inside the bones of my right hand
Inside it's colder than the stars
Inside the dogs are weeping
Inside the circus of the wind
Inside the clocks are filled with sand
Inside she'll never hurt me
Inside the winter's creeping
Inside the compass of the night
Inside the folding of the land

Outside the stars are turning
Outside the world's still burning

Inside my head's a box of stars I never dared to open
Inside the wounded hide their scars, inside this lonesome sparrow's fall
Inside the songs of our defeat, they sing of treaties broken
Inside this army's in retreat, we hide beneath the thunder's call

Outside the rain keeps falling
Outside the drums are calling
Outside the flood won't wait
Outside they're hammering down the gate

Love is the child of an endless war
Love is an open wound still raw
Love is a shameless banner unfurled
Love's an explosion,
Love is the fire of the world
Love is a violent star
A tide of destruction
Love is an angry scar
A violation, a mutilation, capitulation, love is annihilation.

Inside the failures of the light, the night is wrapped around me
Inside my eyes deny their sight, you'd never find me in this place
Inside we're hidden from the moonlight, we shift between the shadows
Inside the compass of the night, inside the memory of your face

Outside the walls are shaking
Inside the dogs are waking
Outside the hurricane won't wait
Inside they're howling down the gate

Love is the child of an endless war
Love is an open wound still raw
Love is a shameless banner unfurled
Love's an explosion,
Love is the fire at the end of the world
Love is a violent star
A tide of destruction
Love is an angry scar
The pain of instruction
Love is a violation, a mutilation, capitulation,
Love is annihilation.

I climb this tower inside my head
A spiral stair above my bed
I dream the stairs don't ask me why,
I throw myself into the sky

Love me like a baby, love me like an only child
Love me like an ocean; love me like a mother mild
Love me like a father, love me like a prodigal son
Love me like a sister, love me like the world has just begun
Love me like a prodigy, love me like an idiot boy,
Love me like an innocent, love me like your favorite toy
Love me like a virgin, love me like a courtesan,
Love me like a sinner, love me like a dying man.

Annihilate me, infiltrate me, incinerate me, accelerate me,
mutilate me, inundate me, violate me, implicate me,
vindicate me, devastate me

Love me like a parasite, love me like a dying sun
Love me like a criminal, love me like a man on the run

Radiate me, subjugate me, incubate me, recreate me,
demarcate me, educate me, punctuate me, evaluate me,
conjugate me, impregnate me, designate me, humiliate me,
segregate me, opiate me, calibrate me, replicate me!



Sting.

a, i o co kaman z tym zajechaniem matrycy?

Wiesz co, z tymi kolorami i przepaleniami to jest tak, ze jak dobrze ustawisz (czytaj zmierzysz na bieli/szarosci o 18% odbicia) balans bieli, niedoswietlisz troche to nawet jest znosnie :P Coz, przesiadlem sie na 350d od kanona i nie narzekam, ostrzy od razu, moge sobie sloiki zmieniac i przepala na bialo :D

A matryce zajechac, coz - da sie to zrobic w kazdym aparacie, ale to by trzeba miliardy zdjec robic... Wypalily by sie te wszystkie z 5000000 pikseli :P

ale jak sie.. eee. zajezdza matryce. bo nie czaje ogólnie ;D

Ooooj no mozna ja zajechac! Jest miliard sposobow! Niektorzy zajezdzaja ja czyszczac ja [tak im sie wydaje], inni rozwalaja aparat mlotkiem a inni maja pecha i siada im w trakcie robienia zdjec, lub (co zdarza sie czesciej) zajezdza sie ona sama wskutek bledu producenta - do czego przyznaje sie on i bije w piers (zdarza sie baaaardzo rzadko).
Co do padania wskutek robienia zdjec to jest to dosc zlozony proces i wynika on z tego, ze w czasie gdy matryca jest "uzywana" plynie przez nia prad. Jesli masz kompakta albo lustrzanke z funkcja "live wiev" jak np nowe Olympusy to mozesz sobie kadrowac na wyswietlaczu a nie tylko w wizjerze (niektore DSLRy maja 2 matryce - 1 do podgladu, 2 do focenia, ale niewazne). Jednak gdy kadrujesz to przez matryce plynie mniej pradu - nie jest potrzebna max rozdzielczosc, wystarczy taka ktora pokryje wyswietlacz LCD. Jak robisz zdjecie przez matryce plynie wiecej prundu. Im wyzsze iso tym wiecej prundu plynie (wysokie iso - duzo prundu - sa zaklocenia = szumy). I teraz wskutek tego plynacego prundu czasem padaja pojedyncze pixele na matrycy. Jak masz 5 milionow czy 8 czy nawet 10 to pojedyncze pixele nie sa problemem bo albo ich nie widac albo sa mapowane przez aparat i tez ich nie widac. Ale zakladajac ze non stop robimy zdjecia na iso 1600 z czasem 30 sekund to po miliardzie zdjec padnie nam ta matryca (czyt. zajedziemy ja). Predzej coprawda zdechnie migawka ale coooo tam :D
