Keith,

I hope Guy doesn't mind. But I can replace "Fun" with "Having a great time" if you (or someone else) finds it more appropriate.

Your image is refreshing for the mind, if you permit me to say so.

As this thread is about images, I add another one of mine:

Erik, Yesterday I was thinking of starting the same thread but didn't want to step on Guy's toes at GetDPI.

I'm shooting film through the H1 at the moment and bought some out of date Ilford HP5+ (Expired Dec 2001) just to run some cheap film though and ripen a batch of Harvey Panthermic 777 developer. The backing paper has "printed through" and made a real mess of the emulsion. I posted a few shots to show how bad it was on Flickr.
This one was picked for Explore and has 7,500 views and 69 "likes", and we worry about sharpness  ;D

Here's a Walking Dead tableau I did for a friend (& fellow zombie-head) last year around this time.  :D  Pentax 645D, 200mm lens + 1.4x TC.

This is a fun thread!
And so far, at least, it has just the right amount of technical discussion.  ;)

Erik, just yesterday I was thinking of starting the same thread but didn't want to step on Guy's toes at GetDPI.

But as it's here...



Well I don't own a patent on the fun threads. Another name maybe better but also folks I helped start GetDPI but I do not own it anymore. I sold my shares for personal reasons to fund my wife's health care for the last 5 years and she is still fighting the issue. So I'm free to be anywhere I want and teach anywhere someone wants to hire me. I am still partners with Jack on GetDPI workshops which we are planning one in February.

Let me make a suggestion though post what gear you shot it with. It does help others and if you get into a technical discussion than just start a thread on it.

But I would like to thank those that thought of me first. That's pretty classy

I dunno. It doesn't get much more technical than this: "...and bought some out of date Ilford HP5+ (Expired Dec 2001) just to run some cheap film though and ripen a batch of Harvey Panthermic 777 developer..."

Oh but it does:
I didn't give: time, temp, agitation, stop, fix,wash or scanning technical details  ;)

Guy,

Nice to hear from you. It may be that you don't have a patent on "Fun with…", but may be you have copyright.

Thanks for sharing on your personal life, I hoped that you were over the hill, but it seems your wife still fights on. Sad to hear. I have some friends who have been there and returned.

I wish you, and your family well. And I may add I feel you are a great guy to have around…

Best regards
Erik

Getting serious.

The image below is an old one from Drei Zinnen/Tre Cime de Lavaredo in the Dolomites. It is a gravestone for an Alpini (Mountain Ranger) who lost his life in WW I.

Seeing this image makes me sad:


Now that image was shot with a Pentax 67 on Fuji Velvia 2002. I revisited that place 2013, but the gravestone lost one of it's three peaks, and looks like this now:


This is the place depicted on the gravestone:


Only the first image is MF (analogue), the two other pictures just complement the story…

Best regards
Erik

Lol. Hell English is supposed to be mine but you would never know it. Lol

Thanks for the warm wishes. Happy Holidays everyone.

Btw just FYI from a old dog that's been in this business for many years and goes with everything in life. Photography is fun and when we take it way too serious than most hobbyists walk away from it. As someone that sees the backend of forums . It's sad when people just give up because they are treated like crap and feel not worthy enough to participate. There will always be arm chair quarterbacks and heavy tech talk. Take my advice to survive forums one must learn sometimes to just change the channel and look for another thread that appeals to you more.

Okay enough of that go have fun and post some great shots folks. End of day the only thing that ever counts is the image. How you got there is meaningless

Ok, I'll play.

Winter last year was long, and it was abnormal to have no leaves even starting to come out by May 11. I went out one morning trying to capture the sense of how late in spring it was with no leaves, but it was, of course, still pretty cold so the fog was thick that morning. Nothing spectacular, but it was indeed fun!



Just to give you all an idea of normal, here is an image after a typical winter in 2012; same road, one full month earlier. The leaves were half out.



Both images shot w/ Alpa STC, SK150, IQ180. Rise on both, probably ~ 10mm
