the sky is gray…

like the facade of our house. Let’s hope for a few more sunny days. Soothing autumn colors appear only in the Sun.

Modus ponendo ponens…

The relationship between light and shadow does not need to be clarified… although at the quantum level it is directly a chain of incredible events

I think autumn…

…has already started here. It’s cold and raining. And that’s demotivating for me. Hopefully the sun will come out soon and turn nature back into a palette of colors… which I’m so happy to change back to black and white. But today I will post a few more pictures from last week…. in color.

ArT….

A new image has appeared in our home gallery. Whenever my daughter asked me what I wanted for my birthday or Christmas, I always wanted a picture from her💖🖌🎨🖼🙃🙂📷

It started with a fog today and it will end with a fog…

…but it was still nice, even though there was almost nothing to see in the valley 🙂📷🙃

The perforated colors of ordinary places…

Color film in a medium format camera is always a big unknown for me. I don’t have a grid in the viewfinder, according to which I could know for 100% that everything I want to be in the photo will be in the photo. It’s very funny. Shooting from hand-held vertically is then a real experience. I hope you will like them 🙃📷🙂

here in Eden…

here, in Eden, summer is slowly coming to an end. There won’t be any more hay this year, and lambs in thicker sweaters are running across the sky. An apples are ripening in the garden and Eve is still jealous of Lilith…🙂🙃📷

analog of Jared

So I finally managed to talk Jared into trying analog photography again. He is still afraid of messing it up. I told him that all he should do with the black and white photo is try to fill the area with what he is photographing. For cropping, some negative films are not suitable at all due to graininess. But otherwise let him take pictures of what he wants and how he wants. So, yesterday, at the windmill, he took analog photos for the second time in his life. I developed and scanned the film for him. The post-process in LR went quite well for him. The last photo was taken when I told him to take a picture of the landscape from a moving car with a longer shutter speed. After coloring(in Neural), it gave a hint of the photographer’s impressionism🙂🙃📷 I think he might enjoy the analog process…

OPEN MIC…

I had no idea there was a festival called Mic. I would be the perfect star of the evening😁. Unfortunately I missed the deadline….which happens to superstars. But thanks to this, I got into photography and was able to take some “perfect” ordinary photos.

If…

…. there is someone near you with a camera, it is possible that they can take a picture of you. If I’m around, it’s an absolute certainty…

Homo proponit, sed Natura disponit….

We have a dam 12 kilometers behind the house. It is our youngest dam and it ranks sixth in the country by the volume of retained water. It was completed in 1997 and was supposed to be completely filled by 2013. However, nature already managed to fill it with 218.7 million m³ of water in 1997 during huge floods.

My dear forest, ….

In the first place of my letter, I would like to thank you for your hospitality and wonderful relaxation. I am sending the promised photos. I will definitely be dropping by again soon. Sincerely forever Mic…..

the bw red rose…

The two pot positions allowed me to have two backgrounds. Juniper and the sky… Even though I’m using film with quite a bit of grain, I think it came out nicely…

Praktica BCA…

I welcomed another member to my family. Last week I acquired another older camera at auction. It was offered with a bag and a Prakticar f 1.8/50mm lens. The cost of postage was more than the cost of the camera. Even though it’s been the 4th day with nasty weather and quite dark days, I couldn’t resist and tried it on a walk in the forest. The result is, I would say sad… The camera can only take pictures in mode A (Aperture preference) or B. The problem is that the information about the used shutter speed remains hidden from the photographer. For users of a lens with a longer focal length, the calculated time may be longer than the value of the focal length. And holding the camera and the 135mm lens with the teleconverter for a long time is often beyond my abilities. Still, I’m glad to have it in my collection. It works, no light flows into it, and in good conditions I will definitely manage to make a nice photo one day.

behind the fence…

Anything can be behind the fence. A treasure, a wreck, a flower… Sometimes we can find ourselves behind the fence too. Only we decide which side of the fence we stand on… Have You a wonderful day on the right side dears🌞📷🙃🙂

the outdoor atelier…

I decided that my model would be an old tree stump. The opening screen shows a tree stump in a city park. The other images of one model are taken from the Ecce Homo turn of race, which is attractive to the spectators. I took pictures again with everything I had with me🙃🙂📷
