    “To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
    Imogen Cunningham
    1883 – 1976

    Cunningham’s work was particularly forward-thinking and experimental for its time. Her extensive work included shots of flowers, portraits and nudes.

  2. No story for this one. Its just a dead tree. Sometimes raptors hang out in it, whilst hunting small creatures in the grass.

    A break in the rain, some favourable light, but very wet under foot.

    Inky wants to know when I’m coming out for lunch.
    This was the full auto setting on the G5X and the NR is a bit fierce. I don’t think I’ll use that in future.

    I’m really enjoying your B&W images this SiJ Barrie. Very nicely done.

    Thank you kindly, and may I return the complement with your monochrome images. I'm getting more comfortable with processing the raw files in RawTherapee, today's was perhaps a touch overprocessed in an attempt to make the lighting just a little more dramatic which has blown out the cloud slightly. With a poor weather forecast for the next two days there might be an increase in the "challenge" aspect of this SIJ. I often find that having posted I am encouraged to return to the image and find different ways of tweaking it.

    You seem to have mastered the idea of what I might call a "sombre black" in your images which reflect the mood of the season very well.

    Today, the weather got me (and to me, which is rare): very nasty, windy and lots of heavy rain. When the rain stopped for a couple of minutes, I ran out to grab whatever image I could get. The new bins had to do ...

    Crappy weather yet again outside today. "An old friend". The greeting card in the background was from our older son and grandson.

    Day Twenty Two - the wrong combination

    Walking to and from work today in the dark offered no photo opportunities that I could see. At lunch time I had the opportunity to go out but I only got as far as the coffee shop. Again no photo opportunities that I could see. To be fair I wasn’t looking. Me bad. I was just thinking coffee! So today’s offering turns out to be a lazy double exposure - a clip from a banksy calendar snapped this evening with the lx100 while I was making my supper and a photo from Iceland snapped in December with the nikon df.

    Funny as it may seem, they actually are - we had fought for something that encourages recycling for years; new boss, new janitor, hey presto, problem solved ...

    I had a Rollei XF35 for a while, which I believe is basically the same camera. I had problems with the light meter (it tended to overexpose due to voltage differences with modern batteries), but still nice to use.

    I'm stupid busy at the moment. I could dissemble a bit and say that this careful study is a metaphor for - something - but it's really just a snap of a bell on a table. Sorry.
