Title: Photo chain Challenge
Post by: Ivo_B on August 14, 2018, 01:44:25 pm
Ok, purpose is to make a photo chain. Everybody is invited to join.
The consecutive photo's should link on one or another way to the previous. Obvious or far-fetched links, whatever. No rules (apart from the LuLa generic ones  ;) ), No obligations....

I'll try to start with an image that can go in any way, I hope all enjoy.

No cat in hat image appears for me, but the Eiffel Tower appears twice as thumb nail.  The first image says error occurred.  The second one will open.  I wonder if this has something to do with the Eiffel Tower shot at night being copyrighted by the owner or somethng?

It's the crappy linking mechanism to google photo's. Sometimes it works, sometimes it times out. I didn't know it would not work smoothly, I apologize. I fixed it (I think)

On September 14, 1927, dancer Isadora Duncan is strangled in Nice, France, when the enormous silk scarf she is wearing gets tangled in the rear hubcaps of her open car. (“Affectations,” said Gertrude Stein when she heard the news of Duncan’s death, “can be dangerous.”)

Think of it as a never-ending chain in forward motion. Each link/image should follow the last link/image in the chain.

You have transported me to London during the sack dress era: I shot a girl doing much the same thing in Trafalgar Square with my Vito B! Come to think of it, that must have been my first street picture. Would have been either '57 or '58... a mate and I drove down there from Glasgow in a Bond Minicar, no less (well, difficult to find anything much less).

Madness. And the faith of the innocents.

Taken at the historical recreation Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, outside Midland, Ontario. Apparently, Trumpeter Swans were just plain good eatin' to the Hurons and French in the 17th century. By the 1930's fewer than 70 were known to exist, but conservation efforts have brought their number back to over 46,000 birds across North America by 2010. As for the picture, I just liked the light and the scene. Technically problematic – handheld at too slow a shutter speed with no stabilization and a breeze blowing in an open window.

I really like this thread. So much variety and new material that I have never seen before. Eclectic and imaginative. The wave images are excellent. For some reason Eric's image strikes me as symbolic of a fish reaching up to snag some food at the surface. And then it quickly becomes disturbing.

So from blue waves to gold-metal waves and blue sky.

What is it? Apartments; offices? Whatever, if meant to accommodate people, it seems a triumph of design over function: all that lost floor space.

Rob

Offices. The lower building is the historical water scout office. And yes it is the entrance of the harbor and the first building ships see when they enter Antwerp. I guess it is a fair trade off: town prestige and function.

I have to ask John, how was the blur achieved? Some parts look in focus but others not so much. Not that I don't like it, I do, as it has an old world and dreamy quality to it.

The reality is too slow a shutter speed, plus lots of 'playing' afterwards.  :) I've always felt that sharpness is just one of the many attributes of an image. It's easy to get caught up in the "must be pin sharp", or "no 100% whites or blacks in my histogram" kind of thinking. I could easily have 'trashed' this picture, but I took it for a reason, then worked to render what I saw/felt.

Maybe once/if I get my place sold...

The shot was for Tennent Caledonian Breweries' Tennent's Lager Calendar, shot in the South of France. Location was by the pool of the Montfleury Hotel on the Californie, Cannes.

It was my second one for them, and the one that had been supposed to be shot in "painterly" fashion until I showed them what painterly means, by presenting them with the Sarah Moon one for Pirelli that really is what it says on the tube. Grain was not their thing, unfortunately, so it didn't happen.

Yes, it's been closed for about two years now. They are supposed reopen as of this past August. It has a new parking lot and lookout platform. Last I checked they were deciding if there should be a trail around the perimeter. Walking on mounds is not allowed. Quite a hefty fine if caught. Parking on road is also prohibited. There may be a fee, not sure. I did three slide shows for my club based solely on images from this location. You can imagine how I felt when they closed it down for regeneration.

Staying on designated trails in national parks is generally a good idea, not to mention in accordance with park rules. In Badlands, there is even a boardwalk for many trails. Saves the fragile ecosystem... and lives.

The enlarged image; the thumbnails never do look accurate to me, but then size alters the way we see internal contrast, too. Mainly, I guess, because it's too small to see in a thumbnail.

Hostas in the Rain

Excellent tonality and detail.  Definitely an appropriate photograph for monochrome.

(The urban deer have eaten all our hostas, alas.  The animals are cute—the little ones, especially—but voracious.  And they love hostas.  My wife discovered an entire extended family of nine of them (sic) taking it easy in our Maryland backyard last week, and no doubt startled the neighbors when she went out and screamed at them to leave.  Should we send some of our critters up your way?  Perhaps I could persuade our city council to round them up and put them on a ship to Nova Scotia.  You have a lot more open space than we do.)

(The urban deer have eaten all our hostas, alas.  The animals are cute—the little ones, especially—but voracious.  And they love hostas.  My wife discovered an entire extended family of nine of them (sic) taking it easy in our Maryland backyard last week, and no doubt startled the neighbors when she went out and screamed at them to leave.  Should we send some of our critters up your way?  Perhaps I could persuade our city council to round them up and put them on a ship to Nova Scotia.  You have a lot more open space than we do.)

Thanks for your kind comment, but you can keep your deer – we have plenty of them! Outside of the town proper, everybody's flower/veg beds are being savaged by the critters, especially this year. I don't hunt, but I must remember to start wearing a 'safety' jacket on my walks in the not-too-distant future.

Yes, JNB, another beauty. It never occurred to me to convert dark green foliage into bw. I always associate bw with people, landscapes and architecture.

I like umbrellas too, whether white in the studio or pink by the sea.

This one may have come from Singapore or even Spain; it grows onto a fuzzy concept does distant memory.

Kodachrome 64 Pro. It fits in with my lack of interest (depending...) on detail in deeper shadow etc. because, frankly, it wouldn't add anything in many cases.

They do look fabulous. And I appreciate the "naive" art style. Part of the folklore, I guess, which the balkan and other people of that region are known for.

I got an uncomfortable feeling from first glance at the shot.

I think it gives me the impression of the speed effect going the wrong way, somehow. It's well graded in effect fore-to-aft regarding quantity of movement, but overall, not right IMO. Perhaps the shadow by the side of the engine is just too crisp, giving the sense that the loco is moving along the side of a green wall instead of a non-uniform surface... ?

Or, it's a case of negative geometry brought about by the perspective of the track.

There is a slight sense of the train moving in the other direction. Perhaps the vanishing point for the effect should be slightlly higher up since it is supposed to represent the camera movement, not the camera viewpoint.?

Have a close at these leaves. They are mostly fake. But I was fooled nonetheless. Apparently a rock group did a video at this conservation park and left all these fake leaves behind. When I spotted them on my hike, I was so excited and couldn't believe my luck. Such colour! Eventually it bothered me that there were no maple trees around these leaves. I looked up and saw only cedars. I lifted one of the leaves and realized they were plastic. But by then I had taken scores of images.

Rob, I am unsettled by your images. Dark, as if a soul is trying to get out of prison.

JR


I kinda think that when we have nothing pressing to do, we come to realise that we are in some kind of, well, not exactly prison, but certainly a waiting room to somewhere.

Work, family, all of those things isolate the mind from the unknown that awaits further down the track. I think it's an unavoidable part of art to investigate - scratch the surface? - of that place that eludes us so well. Russ' poems and prose reach towards that unprovable place we feel is there; the problem is that we have no clue as to the nature of there. Perhaps one can play out emotions through photography, certainly after the event even if the sense of that event is not quite fully-formed at capture. Interpretation must, I suppose, be based upon the emotional conditions of the mind doing the work.

Or maybe not: maybe it would provoke the same flavour of visual emotion regardless of circumstances in which the artist finds himself. I guess we might even be able to agree that is probably true because personal style remains, through good times and bad.

I wonder if our dogs ever travelled this path as they lay, head between paws, dozing in front of the fireplace. The horse to which I feed carrots now and again, standing, eyes open but patently asleep much of the time, does she exist only within the confines of her field, does she think wider dreams? On their own terms, hard to think why not.

Quite correct. It was a stop along the way at one time. Originally built in 1887, when the trains stopped running in 1970, the station was slated for demolition. A local teenager who had grown up next door to the station couldn't bear the thought, and bought it for $500 in 1974. In 1989 he opened it as an inn, which now includes a number of renovated cars/cabooses rented for accommodation. Guests are served in the dining car.

Thank you ~ O ~. I just checked my files and do have one with train in motion. However, it is not sharp. We were not allowed tripods and the light levels were very low. I started using the multiple shot technique where one hopes one of the images will be sharp. By then too late, we had moved on. I like Slobodan's explanation where he posted in the Abstract thread, that our vision for what we see and photograph is an iterative process. Start with something then hone in on what really interests us. This is the way I work, in fact.

I really like Larry's image of the train depot. So old world, so rustic and nostalgic. In general, I like most of the bw work I see here. Some of the high contrast scenes, vignetting and sense of motion techniques, such as in double-cross, I really like. I will have to try some of this. Well done.

Thanks . . .  You’re right.  I sat there for quite a while (from just before sunrise) and this particular shot, with the figures in opposition and with the single sailboat mast separating their approach direction, put a strange tension into the image that I liked.  “Two happiest days in a boat owners life - the day he buys it - the day he sells it.”

The day before our honeymoon. 46 years later the wedding dress still fits her perfectly and thankfully my photography skills have improved, although in my defence I had been quaffing a considerable amount of champagne bubbly.

Rob, my thanks, and also that of the blonde.

She was of course lovely and still is, so that's a question I've been asking myself for the 50 years we've been together. All I can say is it was love at first sight - out of the art school common room window - and that I got really lucky. She is my one in a million as well as being beautiful , talented and of course, blonde.

It also helps explain why you get on so well in Greece: it's obviously she with whom they all want to be friends; you're just the pesky guy who's always there and keeps dragging her away from conversations because you want to photograph things!

I jest - I hope!

On one thing I jest not: if you are fortunate to have a love of your life from so young, as did I, too, that person becomes totally irreplaceable. I pray you take it on trust and never have to find out the hard way.

We've just returned from Greece - a land of dark eyed and dark haired beauty - where the blonde is teased by all our Greek male friends who, if truth be told, are a little in love. She, of course, gives as good as she gets and leaves them wanting more. Me, I just sit back and enjoy the show.

Rob, as you know, we've both had a scare or two recently which has only strengthened our bond. We were very fortunate, but my heart goes out to those couples who have been less so. I can't begin to imagine that pain.

Eric, that dress is an inspiration. Just imagine how Deborah Turbeville would have played with it, far away in some abandoned palace in St Petersburg or Poland or wherever... I never got the chance of working with anything as exotically evocative as that. Hot pants and tank tops and tabards and minis and maxis etc. don't begin to compete. Not even thigh boots.

You have no picture under your name as before, and your cat image does not show up at all. Now I recall Kaspersky blocked your name for some reason and I think that is what is wrong.

Such wonderful colour in your photographs, Keith. I think at least a part of that is regional. As a small child I remember getting a sweater at Christmas from relatives in England. It was a colour unlike anything familiar to me in Canada (at least in clothes) – a shade of blue one didn't see here. It wasn't until I traveled as a young man that I began seeing different regional palettes.

The George Washington Bridge from the New Jersey shore.  One of my earliest attempts to create an image other than a snapshot of family members.  Made with a prewar Contax IIa my grandfather had acquired and given to my father, and (if memory serves) a Zeiss 135mm (f/4?) Sonnar lens.

Thanks, John.

Yes, certainly a large part of it is regional, deliberately seeking out colour and light that differs from our own rather bland regional palette and light in the UK. Colours such as those found in the Mediterranean, North Africa and India look perfectly at home where they are and yet often thoroughly abrasive elsewhere.

I like that as well Ivo. The warm/cold color contrast is nice as is the composition.

Here's an older shot of mine from this hotel in the town of Saguache, Co (pronounced Sa-watch). I really wanted to check out the inside as it looked like they just stopped and closed with glasses still on the bar. It was all locked up and signed well and I didn't want to get shot so I decided to just stay outside.

You are Dutchman, aren’t you?

We have more national dishes, some will refer to Brussels sprouts, some to chicory with bacon and cheese sauce, ‘stoofvlees met friet’ is a good candidate as well. (Patat is Dutch, not Flemish)
Probably the most quoted national dish is Mussels with Fries, but I don’t agree, Mussels is Dutch.
It is a regional thing.

Slobodan, is that added grain or from slide/negative? I heard you can batch process image files and add grain on mass scale. So you if you are not careful, you will put all those wonderful grain elevators out of business.

My favourite kind of dog.

Were I not so old I'd love to have one, but as it would most likely outlive me, and if not, at least be shackled to somebody probably unable to exercise it properly - I remember our last alsabrador and the energy she had! - it would be cruel. Worse, large dogs frighten people, and an adult alsation is most unlikely to be accepted by other people when the original owner/friend dies.

Beautiful creatures with the most intelligent of eyes.

If you use Windows, I suggest to use the snapshot tool of One note (if installed, One note is a fantastic program with sadly no real equivalent on Mac). (Windows key+S) Works fine.

After all attempts, using Snipping Tool in combination with PS seems quite straightforward.

If you click on the start menu and start typing snip it should appear in the list. I made a shortcut on my taskbar because I use it a lot with my software job and it's nice to have handy.

I've never seen grapes grow that way, like a roof. How American! Maybe it's a way of letting Santa Ana's wind flow harmlessly beneath; a new horticultural/vinicultural aerodynamic.

This makes me think of the dreadful events in California, a real tierra del fuego. Was this fire thing always a hazard there, and if so, how come planning permission allowed so much development in what must, clearly, always have been going to be in harm's way?

Now you mention it in the domestic sense, perhaps I do remember seeing similar here in the Baleares, but can't think where, exactly. I know that many houses have a sort of framework over the patios where things grow, often just some kind of long trailer flowers like bougainvillea. I am thinking more in terms of the professional growers, which I imagine must be the scene in the photograph. All the commercial fields I know here are like the French: rows and rows of grape growing vertically. These look grim in winter when all you see are standing twigs.

Anti-bird, I think. At a different vineyard down the road, they have automatic, random gun-blast sounds here and there throughout the vineyard. Very disconcerting for unaware humans, too! A group of us had just arrived at the winery and began a tour of the lands. One poor fellow had just put his hand out to pick a single grape from a bunch when the 'gun' went off.  ;D

The Greeks are truly a nation of gardeners. The ubiquitous attached pergola provides grapes for eating or wine production and provides much needed shade. Almost every area of suitable land is cultivated to produce fruit and veg. Terraces and patios see old olive oil cans with plants for eating and or decoration. But times are changing, the young show little interest. Ancient olive groves are abandoned or the trees dug up for export to the gardens of Kensington and Chelsea. Commercial production of grapes exists and there are some fine wines but the olive dominates the landscape.

Hahahaha. Well it reminds me to a secretary we had years ago. She went to Florida with here mother and lived there for four years. She had to come back to Europe due to unexplainable depressions.
After visiting a few psychiatrist the diagnosis was she suffered single climate syndrome. She missed the four seasons. She came back to Europe and never suffered from depression since then.

I see a stormy evening sky, the last flash of autumn, and the first fresh snowfall. All on the edge of a deep, blue sea.  Around here, we often have a skiff of snow before the colours are fully gone.

I think skating should be confined to a rink.

Every winter there are reports of people, usually kids, who sneak out onto lakes and park ponds and vanish below the ice. Even one life lost that way is one too many. Take a picture instead.

We lost one LuLander to the ice some years ago. Can't remember his name, but that doesn't make it any less a tragedy.

Thanks for the comment John. I agree, Matt's image transcends the simple portrait of a bird and seems to tell a more compelling story.
That's a nice behavioral portrait of a hawk, great catch John!

Sure you can link to anything you observe, literally or figuratively. But sometimes if the link is not obvious, you may want to state what it is. In this case, water, water falls, even the river bed or creek bed, anything at all.

The enjoyment I get from this thread is often linked to fathoming those links that are at first sight far from obvious and to posting images with those same qualities.

Thank you. A village called Church Hanborough a few miles away with an, er, interesting church. Lots of similar places round here. And to answer another comment, yes I am sure those crosses on the house are metal plates to reinforce the building, quite a common sight on the front of very old village houses.

Regular DSLR, out-of-camera shot, minimally processed. Yellowstone.

Oh, I see, it must be some kind of DRO setting then. At least , the Sony's and Fuji's have such a setting for in-camera jpg. It sits between normal mode and multishot hdr and looks exactly like some local-contrast setting.

To further annoy opgr with yuck! photos, another tree and clouds, scanned in the early 2000's and processed with then-PS. Saturation comes from Ektachrome VS. Hasselblad.

Nice sunset!

The Basilica Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, St John's, Newfoundland, 2017

A faux HDR shot, produced by globally and quite aggressively opening up the shadows, and locally backing off the highlights in the windows and interior lights.  Not my greatest image, to be sure—and perhaps with a little more work I could have given it more punch—but it was really just a tourist snapshot and I was pleasantly surprised by what Lightroom allowed me to do with it in post.

The bike is painted yellow because it was a marker for the 'Tour de Yorkshire' a few years ago. The road is steep (1 in 4) out of Grosmont and hard enough to walk up. Cycling up it in a race must be heart attack territory...

Truly good photograph, Eric; I sometimes wish I could adapt to that genre of work, but never could. Simplicity is always a powerful tool, and mood its empowering accomplice, as you clearly understand. Black and white is also, for me, far more attractive than colour landscape which just looks pretty or even pretty-pretty, which is probably yet more distressing to me as it becomes more pleasing to the shooter.

Who could have imagined that photography could lead to so many camps of bias and love and dislike?

You guys are just trying to make the rest of envious. It was in fact a series of infrared bw images that first lured me into photography in a serious way. They were fantastic, another world, so surreal and so well done. They appeared in Globe and Mail, a national newspaper of Canada. Alas, at the time, I had neither the money nor the time to pursue bw photography. Sigh.

My Vermont shot was really an accident. The magic light was from flare on the lens, which I didn't see when I took the shot, with a rangefinder camera. But I liked the result.

This image was scanned from a print, since I can't find the negative any more.   :(

It's worth noting that HC-B thought of himself as a surrealist; I don't know how he'd have reacted to infrared, though who knows - maybe he dabbled in secret?

Rob, interesting that bit of info. To be clear, the image I remember was was not a landscape. It was urban, modern, futuristic looking. Look at the attached image: the background was similar but included the whole city hall and square, and some passersby. A businessman was walking by. He was up close and dominated the scene, looking very smart and wearing a dark suit. His attache case and arm were swinging in tandem with his business like stride. He exuded the look of an ultramodern businessman, and looked for all the world to be striding into the future and taking everyone with him. All in a glorious high contrast style that glowed with infrared qualities that only film can do. The background architecture really made it look futuristic. I guess I was impressed.

I don't recall a moment where my interest in photography started, I guess its something that has slowly built up over time. I imagine that's part of why I like to photograph a bit of everything. I enjoy b&w imagery, but have alway been most strongly drawn to cool colour palettes, and love the mix of dark blues against whites, like a beautiful Lawren Harris painting of Northern Canadian Landscapes.

Same building, different angle.

That is really fine, Eric. I don't think I have seen that one before. It certainly does look like flames rising ever higher. But it also reminds me of dark rolling thunderhead clouds, and the first part of Beethoven's Pastoral symphony where everything builds up and threatens, but then quickly subsides. Just wonderful.

When we get that colour up here in the UK it's usually due to Saharan dust whipped up into the atmosphere and carried northwards.
Title: Re: Photo chain Challenge
Post by: Rob C on January 28, 2019, 02:46:08 pm
I didn't know it went that far north; here, it mainly manifests itself as rained mud on the cars and terrace furniture.

My worst flying experience - once up there, which is not the same as my worst flying experience before we were up there - was one March when we flew from England to Lanzarote to shoot the Glayva Liqueur calendar: we ran into a sandstorm that lasted for days after arrival. My fear was based on my first pro photography job when I worked as a trainee in an aero-engine manufacturing company. We did a lot of photography work with broken turbine blades and damaged flame tubes.

No wonder I enjoyed driving a lot more than flying.

@Qoncussion: I don't know where these roads are you keep posting pics of, but I fancy riding my motorcycle along them!
That's actually an abandoned train tunnel running over Donner Summit near Truckee, California. You can get inside and walk in the tunnels. They're really cool. The roads I've posted previously are in the same area.

Storm over Denver Airport, Denver Colorado, 2015

The backstory: This storm briefly shut down the airport.  We were stuck waiting to make a connection to the Left Coast for more than two hours.  Our flight was the first to board when the storm finally began to move away.  I shot this with a little Canon pocket camera through the airplane's window a few seconds after takeoff.  It was early in a fairly steep climbout and I instinctively tried to level the horizon as I looked at the storm in the camera's LCD viewfinder.  The image was still slightly tilted, so I completed the correction in post.  Somehow, a tilted horizon—however true to the actual subject—just didn't look right.

It's only leans right from this one side. All one need do, to see it form the another point of view, is look a little more. If a 180 degree stroll is taken you'll see it is leaning to the left. Then the realization becomes it's the same tree. A lot can be learned by looking at things from a different a perspective. And this applies to pictures too!

This is a wonderful kind of complex for me. Unsure if I am about to turn the page, procrastinating about that move to further inhale, or waiting for the sound to build and the Akira Kurosawa film to begin. thank you for sharing this one John.
Thank you Patricia, Peter and Rob for your comments and interest in the tree image. When I converted it to bw, it sprang to life, so I had to put it on display. Peter, your comments are perceptive and wise.

My father, a passionate photo maker, always said: “Son, if you are a real photographer, you can make a decent photo through a hole in a shoebox.”
So why not with a iPod.
The Hipstamatic app was fun to use, for a while, then it got boring.
Anyhow.
I made a complete book with the iPod. It was really fun to do.

It's bands of scattered light emanating from the ceiling of an elevator, criss-crossing and landing on the stainless steel doors and walls. I had to unpack everything in the elevator because I couldn't resist. It was part of "creative" competition at local club, so I superimposed a multicolored gradient. The original is not nearly so full of impact.

Your (nice!) image reminded me of Christmas 1997 when I was stuck at Birmingham (UK) airport and decided to spend the night at the neighboring Novotel hotel. I must have been their only guest and spent a pleasant time speaking with a young woman who was the bartender. I ordered a Jameson and she suggested a whiskey tasting which included some six or seven different brands and blends. As I reached the last shot, I was struggling to stay on the barstool. A delightful evening!  ;D

Rabanito's contribution- that was excellent expression of autumn colours, as was Keith's "velvia" special. Well I remember that film. Still have some in the freezer! Pieter, I really like your spring contribution - so delicate and nicely framed against the wonderful background bokeh.

On with the show, ducks are a calling:
