In memory …

of my rock life, I kept only a few strings from my instruments. And those strings still play in the spotlight… but only I can hear their tones.

Pictures of wooden chronicles …

Each tree has its own chronicle. Maybe that’s why we learned to make paper from wood 🤔👁📷

in cold blood ….

Placing any point in the golden ratio will force the observer to beholder what you want them to watch. Something makes you look at places that are not interesting at all. The magic of the golden ratio.

the old well …

The opening image consists of two images. I only had a 135mm lens with me on DSLR Nikon. So that the whole cage of the well and the roofs of the house was in the shot, I solved it by merging two shots.

All shades of gray II …

I’ll add a few DSLR images before the negatives dry. Every one of my pictures carries a story. In the morning, I was fascinated by a fountain in a small town about twenty kilometers from my house. The problem was that the moment I chose the composition, the fountain always changed the force of the water flow. I’m sure someone was standing by the fountain’s remote, having a lot of fun 😁📷

extra ordinary BW shots …

As like a remote control, the photographer controls the observer’s eyes. The yesterday’s shots.

into the arc …

The weather was really bad yesterday … the rain showers gradually turned into persistent rain. So I hid in the passage and waited. At home, I then apologized to my old cameras.

The father accompanies the son ..

Like the dad in the opening photo, I accompanied my son to the graduation exam yesterday, which he passed without any problems. Before he finished the exam, I had a few hours to find the right light. My son was definitely more successful at the test yesterday than I was at the photo shoot…

over 9,000 great photos…

in six minutes and 23 seconds can be seen in Metallica’s Unforgiven video clip. Every frame of the film can be considered a great photo. So today I tried to photograph a similar style with filters of all colors. Black and white, of course.

Metallica – Unforgiven

New blood joins this Earth
And quickly he’s subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules
With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on, he’s known
Ooh, a vow unto his own
That never from this day
His will they’ll take away
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
They dedicate their lives
To running all of his
He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is
Throughout his life the same
He’s battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully
That old man here is me
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
Oh, oh, oh
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
You labeled me
I’ll label you
So I dub thee unforgiven
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
You labeled me
I’ll label you
So I dub thee unforgiven
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

drops anatomy …

On our small square, a fountain was installed a few years ago, which shows the impact of the drop on the water surface. I like it very much. Especially when before that our square was decorated only with a gas station. I think I took a picture of her recently when the small fountain hadn’t been started yet.

Blaze of glory ….

inpired by Bon Jovi – Blaze of glory

Blaze of Glory

I wake up in the morning
And I raise my weary head
I got an old coat for a pillow
And the earth was last night’s bed
I don’t know where I’m goin’
Only God knows where I’ve been
I’m a devil on the run
A six gun lover
A candle in the wind, yeah
You’re brought into this world
But they say you’re born in sin
Well at least they’ve given me something
I didn’t have to steal or have to win
Well, they tell me that I’m wanted
Yeah I’m a wanted man
I’m colt in your stable
I’m what Cain was to Able
Mister catch me if you can
I’m goin’ down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
I’m goin’ down in a blaze of glory
Lord I never drew first
But I drew first blood
I’m no one’s son
Call me young gun
You ask about my conscience
And I offer you my soul
You ask if I’ll grow to be a wise man
Well I ask if I’ll grow old
You ask me if I known love
And what it’s like to sing songs in the rain
Well, I’ve seen love come
I’ve seen it shot down
I’ve seen it die in vain
Shot down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
But I’m going down in a blaze of glory
Lord, I never drew first
But I drew first blood
I’m a devil’s son
Call me young gun
Each night I go to bed
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
No, I ain’t lookin’ for forgiveness
But before I’m six foot deep
Lord, I got to ask a favor
And I’ll hope you’ll understand
‘Cause I’ve lived life to the fullest
Let this boy die like a man
Starin’ down the bullet
Let me make my final stand
Shot down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
I’m going down in a blaze of glory
Lord, I never drew first
But, I drew first blood
I’m no one’s son
Call me young gun
I’m the young gun
Young gun, yea eee yea
Young gun

What are color filters…

for when using black and white negative films? Always only to increase the contrast. It is important to know how much EV the filter changes the exposure value.
