Re: PICTURE POST II!

^ Please do! I think it would be great to have a thread dedicated to the finer (and funner) aspects of photography. I'd love to get some inspiration and tips from folks here. Heck, maybe some of us can also try a photo a day in it, too. I tried to do the 365project but the site just seemed too impersonal to me. Doing something similar here could be fun ... and quite inspirational.

I have a bunch of other lenses, but I'm really trying to make myself take everything with my 50mm fixed-length lens (it's Canon's entry-level 50mm, plastic assembly and all that, retails for about a hundred bucks).
I have that same lens and I love it! Great shots Timby. Glad to see you getting back in the game.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Timby, they are great shots!

My boys wanted Spiky hair today for school. I tried to do their hair like in the 80s, spiked all over. It didn't work out so well, so I fell back on some faux hawks. They were happy that's all that matters, right?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Not one of my best (my 50mm lens actually broke earlier today -- I was trying to manually adjust the focus, pushed too hard and the focus no longer works, so this was taken with an old kit lens), but my wife gave me the idea of the rings, and I took it further to incorporate a lens (she loves my photography and really wants to learn more about the art, and I am trying to teach her). I like the DoF, but this is not a fast lens and so I couldn't capture the detail I wanted. But I needed to take my photo of the day. Actually used a blank sheet of printer paper as a diffuser for the flash.

A friend purchased a new car over the weekend, I was able to take a drive with him yesterday. A very nice car, always been on of my favorites.

I started the Project 365 on my Wordpress blog with all good intentions but we've had such a terrible winter that outdoor shots were a no-go most days, so I abandoned it. The weather's improving now so I should get some more photos.

The swans along the River Exe are starting to nest. Last year the river flooded rather late in the spring and I think quite a few nests must have been destroyed as we saw very few cygnets. We're all hoping for lots of swan family pics this year. Even better, the black swan, named Fifi by the locals, has been spotted again by the Quay after not being seen last year, so I'm hoping to get some photos of her. Of course it's dark and raining again as I type this! Ah, English weather...

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I think you made full use of a lot of signifiers in the shot to demonstrate a closed in barrier-ed feeling - the lack of clarity/texture in the glass especially.

It's a little blurry, but it still looks like it came out alright.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Timby, I'm sorry to hear about your 50mm lens! I have the same one and would feel lost without it. Are you still able to use it? Which lens did you use for the pine needles?

Oh! And given your story about that lens and your reconciliation, I love the symbolism of the lens photo!

Two new photos from today (Kestra, I was thinking of your interior photos when I was framing the second shot!):
