Really enjoy the images on this thread. Actually like the whole idea. Just have some fun with a camera on a daily walk. Wonderful.
Thanks Martin. At the end of the day, what's the point if you can't have fun with your photography. Perhaps if you are a pro, you have to find a way to marry the pro side with the fun side.

Tonight I walked in High Park with only 45 minutes of daylight left. It was semi-dark because the sun was behind a hill. I decided to shoot anyway as there was some glow. I spotted a coyote and was only able to get one shot of him at ISO 12800. Not much of a shot, but he sure looks ghostly. If only he had been between all those trees I photographed. BTW I shot in bw mode for coyote. It really is difficult to get the dark look in color.

With just a tiny bit of Photoshoppery you could insert the coyote into the middle of the tree scene in the second shot.

Good stuff as usual.

Started walking the creek again. But I am going to try other locations as time permits. It's just that the creek is close by.

^ This!

Especially like the division created by the interesting shape of the road and the slanted natural elements on the left. The impressionist look of the figurines walking their dogs is golden.

June 26, 2019, from walk in High Park. Taken in near darkness at ISO 12800. I noticed the lamps lighting these trees and then waited for a car to drive by and add more light. This is result.

It is beginning to appear that some of these darker scene images are taking on a more painterly and water color look, especially those taken at high ISO's. All taken yesterday at High Park along with "spooky" image. Incidentally, these are taken without tripod. Sometimes it's a blessing.

Now, now, there is a rational explanation. This is a double exposure that was inverted in PP. While 95% of my ICM and multi-exposure images are more or less 'as is', I sometimes like to play with colors and other PP features. What I like about this image is the red stayed while the blur movements became muted. So to me it resembles a Japanese watercolor print.

Now back to inhaling... ;)

Dunno? Reminds me of wallpaper or bedsheets, neither of which, directly or indirectly, associated with fine Japanese silk or corresponding patterns. Sorry. (But as daily walk experiment, it is a good attempt, mind you.)

However, this:


I keep coming back to this one. The little stems at the bottom left create an interesting tension. It is overall impressionistic, since one can reasonably deduce what you're looking at, but for these little whatsamicallits!? Which triggers the Norwegian foresttroll imagination, so to speak. Do I hear some faint Peer Gynt suite playing in the background...?

I agree. Just before I posted I noticed they look like my old bedsheets!

Those squiggles are flowers that are squiggly because the camera is moved as the pan is made. It is bw conversion, which was made to look Ifra-red bw because I noticed that look made the image more impressionistic and ethereal.

Thanks for your interest and comments Oscar. BTW, I love Grieg. Who doesn't!
