    I didn't know where to put this, since the pictures cover a little of everything. These are a few with the E-P1 taken around a park in our small downtown area.

    For the bird lovers, this goose was flapping its wings real fast for some reason.

    This one I found interesting. More abstract I suppose. I don't know why, but I just like it.

    This is my favorite

    Jason, The 3rd works very well.
    The others are nice. The 3rd shows more how you think and react to what's around you.
    Keep em coming.....

    Thanks Don.

    I have a bunch of photos that I've taken in the last month that I just haven't had a chance to look at or get up onto the forums.

    An interesting set - like the sinuous lines in #2 and #3 is a strong composition.

    Jason, I really like the third. The tension of the dog and owner pulling makes it interesting.

    Bilzmale,

    Thats probably why I'm attracted to the photo. I see sine waves a good bit in the work I do.

    Amin,

    I agree. At first glance, it appears the dog is headed toward the duck. But if you look closer, the dog really is just headed toward the water. I used a telephoto on this shot.

    On another unimportant note, the couple heading away in the shot , if you take look, is carrying a NEX 3. You can't tell in the shot, but when we ate at the little outdoor cafe, they were there and the NEX 3 was sitting on their table. First time I've seen anyone else in the area using a mirrorless camera.

    Thanks all for the comments.

    For me it's the light and fluidity of second one!

    I can see why you took each one, Jason.:thumbup: That first one makes me laugh - is that a swimming chicken?! The waves and goldfish catches me with its patterns, too, and I do like the graphic nature of your third, very much. Thank you for posting all three - and for your spotting a mirrorless camera spy story, too!
