    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Rue du Prieuré, Vétroz

    Vétroz is a village situated at the bottom of the Rhône valley in Valais. It used to be a wine village and still counts several wine producers and vineyards. It is also included in the agglomeration of Sion which means spreading buildings of all kinds : one family houses, appartments houses and also stores in continuation of the commercial zone of Conthey.

    The center of the village is rather heterogeneous, with houses from different periods, some renovated and some other decaying. Some houses are made of stones, others of wood and stones. You can still see old dilapidated barns which are rarely used as such nowadays. Last but not least, several houses have been demolished, leaving an empty place.

    I spent spent a good hour there recently wandering in the center streets, but the quest wasn't too fruitful. I struggle with the TSE lenses because I want to avoid the use of a tripod. Skewed warped buildings could become my landmark . And I struggle to bring some order in such a chaotic environment; the cars, lampposts, road signs and billboards are ubiquitous and rarely collaborating nicely with me. And there are so many possibilities to frame a picture that it is mind boggling.

The light is from the right side from the cave entrance and progressively gets darker further into the cave. I was trying to capture this change. I have my M240 with my 35mm Summilux with me. But I would have to bend down low or squat down to try to capture this image. Moreover, with a 35mm I would have to go closer, very likely intruding into his comfort zone. The A7R2 with its lcd in a horizontal position allowed me to shoot tlr style. Shadow details from the A7R2 are better than what I could have captured with the M240. Thanks for the comments.

    Ruelle du Collège, Vétroz. That modern building all dressed in golden metal is a children daycare center; the building on the right used to be a school, but they have built new ones and this building is now housing social cares.

    Edit : I was curious about that gold looking facade : in such a village and for a public building that seemed strange. So I searched the website of the municipality : it is made of brass and second the architects it was chosen in order to contrast with the white concrete present on the sides of the buildings and on the ground. They also think that the golden color is a remembering of the paint often used for the other buildings in the neighborhood (mm... I didn't see a lot of that yellow the other day). Anyway : it is very shiny and stunning in that place.

    A7RII + Batis 85 :: @1/500 f2.8 ISO 100 :: heavily, heavily cropped.

    My first, and last, picture of cats, promise. A stray cat that lives in my family's yard delivered a litter of 5 kittens, they were barely a month old when I took this picture, already fighting like little demons.

    Maybe not the appropriate place to write this, but I just read about the passing of Michael Reichmann of Luminous Landscape. Very sad to hear this, his photography, and his writing, were very inspiring.

    Just wanted to add one full color (with some heavy IR influence) shot from the shoot yesterday at Steamboat Landing. Same setup as above.

    I was wondering too, because he is such a regular member posting one lovely picture of Cornwall everyday. Such a long absence (3-4 weeks ?) almost becomes worrying.

    Hopefully :
    * He didn't switch to another system camera and leave the Sony forum,
    * no one stole his camera and lenses,
    * nothing bad happened to his folk and family,
    * nothing bad happened to him either.
    * and he is just having a pleasant travel or a restful holiday without easy access to the Internet.

    But for sure, we all hope that he will soon be back with great pictures to show !

    Thank you Annna and Ute for your very kind words...I'm still here but just enjoying everybody else's images for a change
    I have been and still am up to a point, totally bogged down with family matters...I hope to get out soon and take some images before I completely lose my sanity altogether
    Lots of great images everybody....Please keep it up
    All the very best...Cheers Barry

    Anna, I'm really enjoying your new work with wider-angle TS lenses. My reaction is that with your longer lenses, I feel I'm standing at a great distance from the subject and seeing it almost through a telescope. What I especially like about these new ones is that I feel I'm standing right there with you and the camera, at a 'natural' distance for viewing the scene.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    A return visit yesterday to this old, deserted farmhouse on Dartmoor.
    Nun’s Cross Farm is also known by many in nearby Princetown as “Merripit House” considered to be the fictitious home of the Stapleton’s in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel the Hound of the Baskervilles.
    Jack Stapleton was the leading protagonist that would under the cover of darkness release the monstrous hound to roam across the Grimpen Mire (Fox Tor Mire about ½ a mile away) in search of it’s prey Sir Henry Baskerville.






    Presumably the padlocks and iron bars on the windows and door are still there to prevent the hound from getting into the house

    Looks like we're in the same forest?

    Right! We have lots of eucalyptus / blue gum trees that present a fire hazard because they ignite easily and burn at such high temperatures, with wildfires sometimes spreading to residential areas. There's been a controversy over thinning them: some regard them as a 'non-native' (that is, Australian) plant, to be uprooted; others like myself who grew up with them want them preserved, but thinned so that don't foster wildfires during our CA droughts.

    This is a thinning project that I photographed because it looked so strangely like funeral pyres, or like a for witches to hold midnight rites.

    Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to write it down. Usually this is said for street photography, when there are people interacting. I didn't think it could be applied to architecture shots.

    I had two TSE lenses : 24mm and 90mm. I took both for the Vissigen serie, but the 24mm was too wide and I used only the 90mm. That one was a little narrow, so I decided to add the 45mm and I think I like it : it is often the right focal when the buildings are low, which is the usually the case where I live.

    This lens isn't top. It flares like mad as is shown here and is rather soft in the corners. Some times I think that I should update it.. But then should I get the 24mm II ? Or not rather the 17mm ? Both lenses would be much heavier than the one I have. I can't imagine getting out with all four TSE lenses. Way too much weight. The three TSE I have are already making a heavy package.

    Nice! Are you fully committed to 2:3 format, or would you consider cropping the foreground just a bit?

    I may start a new series on hydroelectric power plants and their dams. There is much to tell about them, but it is getting late.. so I will keep that for another time. Those who want to see more of that plant can go to the album I have started at Flickr :

    I bought an Olympus 35mm shift lens for my used 𝛂7 and am mostly happy with it—great coverage, sharpness, and moderate easy-to-correct barrel distortion, but I did not do sufficient research before purchase—it’s single-coated and flares badly in strong backlight. Whilst I can fix much of the flare in post, that adds to processing time of course. Need to look for a multi-coated version. But before doing that, I will acquire a 24mm Olympus or a Pentax 28mm shift (I don’t particularly feel the need for tilt). These mounts are attractive because they will work on a Pentax K-1 which will be in my (destitute pensioner) future! Weight and size will be considerations, along with price.

    To see a eucalypt erupt in a bushfire is both an exciting and terrible sight. However, lots of plant species in Australia require burning for seeds to be ‘awakened’, so the original inhabitants practised careful patchwork burning to achieve this—working in small-enough areas so that animals could easily escape to surrounding unburned territory (over 50 species live in Euc forests). And of course animals such as koalas were and are dependent on particular species of gums for food—a very specialised diet indeed!
