I was waiting in front of this window when this mother and daughter stood still besides me, all I had to do was "clique" (As HCB stated "photography is mostly waiting")
The Hoover Building, Perivale London - a 1930s art-deco gem that fortunately has a preservation order on it but sadly remains empty for many years (although there is a Tesco supermarket at the rear). Some explanation below the photographs.
The building is a well known landmark and not just from the road. When it was refurbished in the late nineties it was lit up with green floodlights and given its size was so visible from the air that pilots landing at Heathrow used it for navigation. I saw it many times from the air as I was doing a lot of travelling to the continent at the time and can attest to it being an amazing sight on the flight path into Heathrow at night.
Louis, may I suggest to go back there and take a close up of the entrance ?
That seems really wonderful to me.

That black and white has the look of good old film with either a red or orange filter added at the taking stage as opposed to PP.

Sony A7r + Zeiss Contax 180/2.8 Sonnar FLE @ f/5.6... Just not enough examples out here of this often overlooked lens.

I came to photography too late to have worked at all seriously with film: SFX pro seems to have eliminated the need... [runs for cover! ]
I like the tonality of all three, but I particularly like #3.Barley Fields - Toned in Nik SE Pro2 and then blended with the original colour image..

That's a good kind friend you have yourself there.
As you say the Tokina 17mm is one of the few super wides that does work well with the A7R...Looking forward to seeing more from the Isle of Man.
It's pretty hard to achieve a true BW film like quality in digital IMO but you succeeded ...Cheers Barry
'Sebago Lake sunset' - a7r / FE 24-70

Nice shot Douglas! How do you like 24-70 FE. Any major cons?
I am thinking to pick up this lens for traveling when I am in New York in september.
Speaking of cheap lenses ...
I pulled out the $95 Sigma 600mm I found on Ebay. More of an equipment test than anything else ... Fitted it to the A7 with the Novoflex NEX/NIK; used tripod and remote release to see how sharp it might be. Focusing is typical for a mirror: razor thin focus zone. Results are typical of mirror lens too: a bit low on contrast out of the camera but nothing a little bit of Tone Curve can't cure. It certainly isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but for the little I play with ultra-tele work, it's good enough and provides access at a low price. :-)
Thanks for looking! Comments always appreciated.

Thank you Douglas for your opinions on this zoomlens. If I buy one, I hope I get a good sample.
A pile of ropes.
I have to be content with plain old Sony kit (onion highlight) glass...I also drink cheap vino out of (freebie) gas station wine glasses .
BTW. Thanks for the wine bottle idea Godfrey...I think that bottle may well reappear sometime in the future, as I have some other ideas for it...Cheers Barry
Another shot glued together in two halves.
Bottoms up, Barry !

Looks like something that Bones cured in the original Star Trek series... :-)

I feel so sorry for you Barry, that you have to put up with those old winebottles
Me, I only drink those modern wines and I must say on the other hand, that they lack a certain kind of character
I tend to shoot small stuff so not to set expectations too high...

Many thanks Louis most appreciated...I like to experiment as you know, sometimes it works and other times it doesn't.
You know Barry, I wish you all the best lenses and good wines And you make lovely images with those lenses.
Although for $ 600 you could have kept your car running for a long time.
(Edit) Many thanks Michiel very funny...You normally get what you pay for with lenses, often or not you don't with wines (certainly the most that I have paid out for vinegar to date).
Apologies for posting immediately after yours...I normally try and leave a bit of time before posts, I just didn't spot yours before posting...Cheers Barry
Passed this little red and white building while cycling to and from work for twenty odd years.
Never bothered to find out about its purpose.
So don't ask me ...
