Don't much like Sundays... everything here is pretty much dead. Maybe that's what resting does for one.

Anyway, in the wan hope that the photo-gods will choose to smile a little more crisply this time, here's another bottle.

;-)

Rob C

P.S. I guess they are still unhappy.

LOL - Rob you are cheating me !
Putting all these photographers books behind the bottle - thats not what I requested from you.
:D

Nice one again! - Love it !

Cheers

Thought a quick vacation was in order after all that hard work around Mallorca.

;-)

I think I'll attribute the 'softness' this time to tequila. Grrrr...

Rob, muy buena.

When viewing your images on LuLa you obviously click on the thumbnail to see the enlargement but are you then hovering over the enlargement to see if there's a + symbol that allows further enlargement?

On clicking the thumb I see a fairly soft enlargement but by clicking on the enlargement again I'm seeing a much sharper image.

This sure is my day at school!

Keith, I had never hovered and second-clicked; does anybody else know of this trick? I shall return to the images still remaining here and try it out - worked on this hatted shot!

((The sombrero was a silver wedding memento from one of our neighbours, half of which couple is long gone; he, the late hubby, was a delightful Canadian, a real and very generous gentleman (who used to bring doggy-bags back from various restaurants for our Alsabrador, who would wait for him every day on the edge of the terrace for her treat), and his wife is a Scot.))

;-)

Rob C

P.S. Yes, it works with all the remaining shots too, provided they start as thumbnails.

Rob, I just assumed that everyone clicked for the full size image.

Well yes, I do too, and the difference in size between the two blowups (one click or two) is minimal - it's just that the second click makes it far crisper for me!

Rob, as far as I'm aware if you host your own images on your own site and refer them to here rather than download and have them hosted here then they will appear exactly as they appear on your own site, i.e. no thumbnails and no two stage enlargements.

I'll give it a try.

Nope, LuLa resizes them regardless.

Nice Keith.

I have been trying to think of what to do with a baked enamel bed pan I have here for about 15 years.  Motivated by Duchamp in a sense but not wanting to replicate has been the hurdle to jump.  I have other still life objets d'art to shoot but just need some wet weather to keep me indoors.

If you google Bedpan Art there are some reasonably moribund examples.

Cheers,

Nice Keith.

Thanks, Walter.

It was shot in the day room of Lovokomeio, the former leper colony in Chios, Greece.

M9-P, 35mm Summilux ASPH

As an aside it seems LuLa will resize any image over 800 pixels wide.

Keith, I did that on post #448 and it still came over with blurred captions...

That's why I reverted to the thumbnail route for the Mexican Coke because your two-clicks advice/method makes them more crisp to the viewer. I also don't want to touch my website again until Weebly tell me what's going on with my lost Home Page! I haven't even dropped the Mexican into it for that reason.

I like your leper colony image - in fact I approve most highly of the fact that the unimportant aspects of background go soft! I usually feel that infinite DOF makes concentration of the mind almost impossible - the actual 'subject' can get lost in the confusion. Unless, of course, the entire scene is the subject, but that can be too global a concept for me!

Did you hand-hold or tripod the Leica? Can you frame exactly at that sort of distance?

Rob, this shot was made with the M9-P before I had the new M(240). I use the Leica M9-P almost exclusively hand-held although for this shot it was tripod mounted as the light was very poor and this was a time exposure of several seconds. The M9-P is a simple rangefinder camera and as such critical framing is not possible at any distance. Critical framing is where the Leica M(240) complete with liveview and EVF excels.

I hardly dare ask: has the Hassy gone into retirement, or have you gently added two smaller millstones to the back of the Greek donkey that's waiting for your next trip?

Hassy is resigned to the fact that she has seen the last of Hellenic shores.

It would never have happened in the days of Victor!

I think you may be well-pleased, actually; I know that like Walter G, you haven't always loved 135 formats, but when it comes to travel and transportation into relatively difficult countryside, small suddenly becomes beautiful. As you know, I had both formats too, and it was really only at client request that the 6x6 went offshore.

I've never owned Leica because of the r/finder system not suiting my work, and their reflex machines didn't give 100% coverage in the finders either, which was vital using 35mm the way that I did. But, as I've related before, I did have experience of making prints from an M3 toting a 21mm from either Schneider or themselves, not sure, but the prints were something else: they certainly had a 'look' that the studio's Nikon did not. I think you wil be very pleased, in the long run too, and that's ever the test.

Good shooting!
