Belgium is also under a quarantine regime, so photography is limited to the garden at the moment ...
But fortunately, the bear leek is starting to open right now, and after that, it will be the roses ...

Re: Chiaroscuro

Darr,

I've said it before, but it still amazes me how you erase the film/digital divide. There is no better example of "it's the photographer, not the camera, or even the medium."

Matt
Thank you Matt for your kind words.
I try to keep it simple.

Best to you and your family,
Darr

OK, My last haircut was late February and I declined to let my wife cut my hair so looks like some very long hair is coming.

Yeah, looking in the mirror feels like I'm back in the late 70's ...
What about shaving bald ?

My wife is looking forward to the day she can cut my hair. I hope the hairdressers will be open before that becomes necessary :scry:


Something different:
In one of the local parks they created a "duckies walk" for children. A story of 12 pages along the path about a girl that found an orphan duckling, lost it and then found it back again (all is well that ends well :)). It's fully in corona style and has all kind of hidden tips to prevent spreading the virus (like washing hands, keeping distance from other people in the park and sending a photo to the grandparents because they can't be visited during this time). All entertaining and cleverly done.

Here's the "kick-off" close to the park entrance:

A few more quarantine images:

1: Resting in the park


These ladies were resting against the tree in our local park and I approached them to ask if I could take a picture of them. They were very happy I asked that because they thought I was approaching them as an official to tell them they were not allowed to sit there :LOL:. I took a few more photo's and sent them all to them by email which they appreciated.


2: Also the swings are closed



3: And so is the restaurant in our local park nearby


All A7Rii + Yashica DSB 50/1.9

I hope everyone is doing well, and the weather is good for you. Living in the southern US, we can experience turbulent weather this time of year, and unfortunately we have had some lately, but very grateful the tornados have stayed north and south of us so far. I have been going through some expired film in the freezer.

This image was shot a few days ago with film that expired in 06/99. A very kind photographer friend sent me a box full of expired film, including T-Max 100, 120 format. I shot the roll at ASA 50 and developed for 15 minutes, semi-stand. This was my second attempt as the first roll was shot at box speed and developed for 30 minutes, semi stand. The first roll turned out much too contrasty and the end of the film where it was taped to the spool has internal spidering cracks. So I adjusted two variables in exposure and development, made sure my temperatures did not fluctuate too much and got better results.

I think I will be photographing clouds for a little while as they always remind me how quickly life can change.

Stay safe and keep your spirits up,
Darr

My wife took this photo on her daily walk. (Processed for vivid color by yours truly)



I thought it would make a good still from a bad sci-fi movie, so I processed it to that end. Some people find the color version creepier.

You might be on to something...

Convert to LAB color space and paste the luminance channel from the black and white into the color image and then survey for "creepiness."

I hugely boosted the BW response to green in the BW version. I always like the unreality of white grass and leaves in nonIR photos.

Not a crime scene, but the police tape is there to prevent it becoming a crime scene. Using public benches and picknick tables is currently prohibited.

From a walk around our neighborhood yesterday afternoon. Apparently, deliveries have been a problem for some businesses close for COVID-19.
