  • “Fun with MF images” (and similar) has been one of the most popular threads but its length is almost impossible to navigate as it spans years. In order to organize such threads and make them manageable, we decided to split them by years. So every year we will start a brand new thread, for example “Fun with MF images 2021.” The older threads are still available for viewing but posting there will be locked.

Quarantine Pictures * Any Format *

Last saturday I participated in an "off-line photowalk"

A friend of mine who frequently organises photo walks in the area of 's-Hertogenbosch set it up. The idea was that during the morning and early afternoon people would make a walk in the area they live. Then come home, select and PP some images and upload them to a Flickr group. Then at 16:30 he set up a zoom meeting to chat a bit about the photo's, lock down and other things (and make a toast to each-other's health :toocool:). All in all a great way to keep in contact :thumbup:

Here's two typical "quarantine" images I took on the walk

Deer spotting (kids amusement)

Corona warning sign, attached to a marker indicating an underground Oxygen pipeline (Zuurstof = Oxygen)

Both A7ii + Voigtländer APO Lanthar 65/2 macro

The whole album of my photos (Flickr) can be seen here

One style always available during quarantine - the selfie! I am NOT, however, a portrait photographer.

I watched a Leica event on portraiture. Depending on the photographer, these are usually entertaining. Less common, though, is to get something actually useful out of it. In this case, a lighting exercise. Go into a dark room with a single hand-held light (and a mirror) and study your reflection as you move the light around. It's so much better than the "put the light here" diagrams. So here's a light in one hand and iPhone in the other:

Probably should have removed the pink shower cap in the background....

Just after noon on Friday, tied on a bandana and dashed out to get in a walk around the neighborhood before I had to be back home for a web conference for work.

I continued on for another block before turning left. :)

As I've mentioned before, Miss Abby must be walked daily, virus or no virus! And since I have to leave the house regardless, I might as well as carry a camera along, right?

While at home, I have been trying to capture my daily routine with fresh eyes. There is nothing more exciting like a boring, regular sink :)

What's his/her name? Can't have too many pics of him/her. I think Her, right?

She is called Hikari--the Japanese word for light or sunlight.

I am not sure if I have too many, but I know I could take more... :toocool:

Today's protest. Yesterday's was about 10 times as large, but I didn't get a shot of it. iPhone
