Given the hinged rear screen on many DSLR's, you could pretty much do this now, I think??

Mine doesn't pivot, so I can't verify the practicality... but I have often thought it would be nice feature to enable the camera to be used more discretely at waist-level.

Anyway, in the dark no one can see you framing...

Anyway, this is one of the silent sentinels who watch me try to find a parking slot in the winter mud.

P.S. Do you think I'd gain anything by "investing" in a new Phase mega-camera?
No! You do just fine with the equipment you have now.

Here's Norman Rockwell at night, if such a thing can be imagined...

Usually one sees similar faces rather from men. Somehow funny it's a woman here, and even more sensual indeed.

A deep crop into the full photo, but it’s what I had in mind.

Thank you, Eric.

I seem to be in a mental place where I flip from enthusiasm to emptiness by the day; I do wish I could resolve this property problem once and for all and get away to a brand new start in life, or at least to the point of feeling that I am back in the driving seat and that what happens depends, once more, on my own actions or lack of them! This feeling of suspended animation really sucks! Of course I won't be any the younger, but that's no reason to waste precious time and just rot!

I suppose I felt the same way twice before in life: before I found a path into photography; before I managed to get us to the Mediterranean life. Ironic that the next phase is the reversing of the latter all these many years later. Well, had Ann survived, none of this would have seemed that important, or might have found alternative solutions had the same, new, external political conditions prevailed. She was so wise and determined - where and when it mattered.

And I find myself having to watch that bloody Boris strut the stage, ruining more and more people's lives with his little Englander fantasies and absolute disregard for anything but personal power and publicity. A pox on all of those cursed people.

Another rainy night shot. Maybe we can imagine Boris out there wandering in the rain, after his schemes collapse about him... well, that's a dream too, although a bit vengeful.

Funny thing: this image reminds me of a similar but totally different one from La Doce Vita, just prior to the wading in the Trevi moment... you know, where La Ekberg wonders around with a kitten on her head as Marcello goes hunting for milk - poor, besotted sod!

It appears that in reality - ever a dangerous consideration, for isn't playing a rôle in a film also very, very real? - he was actually enamoured of Claudia Cardinale, which is totally understandable. She was something very else in ... They don't make 'em like they used to!

This made me smirk. I wear the real things, wonderfully decayed naturally, and horizontally aspirated. And bought from the same Levi dealership many years ago. One day, I may buy the jacket.

Rob

They're doing this fake distressing to jackets, too.  >:(

I found a great, REAL vintage jean jacket at a local used clothing store. They were asking $15. Unfortunately, I'd forgotten about the general cut of those jackets. My shoulders are the same size as they used to be, but not my waist.  :-[  It sort of fit, but I looked like an old person trying to wear a young person's clothes. I still wear my naturally distressed jeans, though.

The problem or, should I say reason that I never bought the jackets is that they are too short: I really like them a bit longer to provide a better balance when worn over a sweater. It's one thing for women to suffer, willingly, a short jacket in winter so that they can show the tail of a shirt worn outside the jeans (thus casually playing peek-a-boo with the butt, should they choose), but for me, keeping the chill at bay is key! In summer, a jacket is too hot, so it can only find use in the cold.

But truth to tell, as with leather jackets (unless they come lined), denim is not a great insulator.

French men seem almost as enslaved by fashion as women: watched a young guy getting along the street a couple of days back with several artfully gaping holes in the legs of his jeans. It was 4° with quite a dose of windchill...
