An old one that probably wasn't shown because it's still in colour.

Walkabout in town. Bright and contrasty.
Fabulous John. Like them all. I think the bench and shadow is my favorite.

In Haliburton, Ontario, they built a "Sculpture Forest." One of the pieces on the path is this Rider and Horse which you can see below. I was so taken by the sculpture and the maniacal look of the horse and his equally wild rider, that I observed it for what seemed like hours. Had lunch in fact. It really is a fine piece. I converted sky to bw and blurred background to raise profile of horse and rider.

Funny, the unexpected sights that can greet you of a morning when you open the curtains.

I guess it's the effect of very cold nights and warmish (not that I have touched it in years!) sea.

Last night we had a presentation at the local photo club on cell phone photography and editing. This may sound incredible to some, but I hadn't ever used the "damned thing" to take pictures (where the heck are my reading glasses?). My phone is just something the family insists I have with me when going walking and photographing (i.e. slipping on the ice and rocks, falling down embankments, etc.). You know for emergencies.

But the presenter had urged us all to bring an image or two to practice editing. So I took a couple of photos while a group of us went out to a pre-meeting dinner. I have to say that I'm pretty impressed with the quality of pics from the phone and with the editing capabilities of the app the presenter demonstrated (Snapseed). But editing on that tiny screen (and I've got a "phablet") was not fun. And figuring out how to get it to my PC later just showed how out of touch I am with this stuff.  :) Anyway, here's my first cell-phone pic.

The problem is, you are just as adept with the "damned thing" as with anything else, which leads to dangerous moments where you start to take chances, and leave the "real thing" at home, only to make a shot you later wish had been made on a proper camera.

As related before, that very sin of laziness cost me a nice little earner when a yachtie wanted to have a blow up made for his boat from a cellphone image he'd seen on my website. That was when I abandoned them for anything but reference shots to show shops and tradesmen when I need repairs to whatever.

Avoid the easy ways!

All I can say is: When you come to a fork in the road, take it (or take a picture of it.)   ;)

Lovely weather out. Early spring. Unfortunately I am operating between hayfever and a real fever. Might explain the swaying theme. But we need not keep the doctor busy...

Nice set, Oscar. But why do you keep zig-zagging in and out of this forum like your images ;)

I thought you'd already learned about doctors! It's one pill after another.

I've looked back at some older photos & discovered some stuff from a couple of years ago & images I'd taken for multi-stitch panos, never processed. So here's one of them ...

They're doing some work on the moorings of the local yacht club; good work for the divers, though I'd not fancy it very much myself. I often wondered how they managed to get concrete to set underneath the sea; now I know.

I always thought keeping concrete wet was crucial to the process, even on land. I suppose then, that this is merely a continuation of your maffia crime scene theme you cliffhung on us last year. (Yeah, I did turn it into a verb there. Seems all the rage these days. To bokeh or not to bokeh? When in Denmark, do as the romans do. Bokeh? Wasn't that Japanese for a rotten brain?)

As seen in a store today. I don't even blame them for the brightly colored plastic tubes and bottles. Average price of 1 milliliter of fluid in that store can get up to 2 euros. I tried to deduce the price of 1 milliliter of kerosene for a Boeing full of passengers with one way tickets from here to China. I'm sure I could deduce that somehow and it would be very enlightening, I'm sure, and it would be a funny comparison too, as the plane could probably fly on either.
