    slow day here...

    I wish I were out taking pictures
    Instead I'm doing pre DR testing which is more painful then real DR testing. I'm slowly adding to my Photoshelter account, my acceptance rate is barely over 50%....

    There's still a lot of hard work to do trying to define what the inner nature of a true Slow Day Here Photo is ...

    thanks a lot Jack, you encourage me to spend the weekend in the hammock doing some more thinking about the essence of slow day here photography
    like Bill put it: to slow day here photograph or not to slow day here photograph

    I've found a link that might make some inspiration to elevate the slow day here discipline to new heights
    the link is kindly provided by our friend Pavel on another forum

    Re: slow day here...

    the above fashion center has just been bulldozed to make room for a larger road
    it has become a trend - always bigger and faster and more resolution etc.


    anyway, the shooting style also contains birdshooting

    Steen,

    What lens/teleconverter were you using for your birding expedition?

    Re: slow day here...

    Terry, I mounted a Nikkor 2.8/28mm AI-S for my hunt
    no teleconverter at hand and I am willing to admit these are crops
    the challenge was that this lens is manual focus only
    but on the other hand if Doug Herr can do it, right

    Jono, I love the enigmatic spirit in the Hmm shot and I am really glad you chose to post it in this specific thread adding to the encirclement of the slow day here photography characteristics
    and the skyscape is fabulous, as always

    Re: slow day here...

    It is slow (and cold) here so I have been out shooting B&W film in my old 203FE with the Hassy 110/2.0 lens. It will be a few days until I see the results as my lab is closed for the New Years Holidays

    Happy New Year everyone

    That shot of the vans makes me want to slit my wrists and die slowly sobbing into my depression. Not sure why it gives me such a feeling of ennui but it really does. I'm going postal...

    Jack, I know I'm a bit late to the party, but that's in the spirit of this thread, isn't it, and time passes so fast these days :sleep006:

    Why do you call Steen Jorgen? Can I charge a fee for the use of my name, or will he charge me for the use of his photo

    I like the fridge shot too. Looks very natural. I'm jealous that you can get mayonnaise in a tube!

    Thanks, Tim, I was trying hard. I mean to look natural
    Btw. you have good eyes, it actually is a mayonnaise tube.


    Well, let's get on with it. Here's a modern. It΄s a butterfly in flight.

    Of course it's sold in tubes Is there any other sensible way to store mayonnaise?
