    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Hi Mike
    Looks like a fun place for a holiday
    When did it close . . . and what was that room with the 'recliner' for?

    Good shots though.

    Just this guy you know

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Jono,

    That is the "Operating Room" in the Infirmary. You can see the sign hanging in the left window.

    Probably not a good idea to get sick if you ever go to prison

    I don't know the history of Alcatraz (when it closed, etc). Maybe someone else here can elaborate on that.

    HI Mike
    Apparently Robert Kennedy closed it in 1963 - it was too expensive to run.

    there's loads of stuff about!

    Hey Chris,

    #3 above (The "Operating Room" shot) is one of my HDR shots. So is the black and white "Room with a View" shot right below it.

    Let's see some of your stuff from the shoot!

    Thank you Mike. I got many good photos of the baskets (e.g., different angles and dof) and had a tough time deciding which I preferred most. I am glad you liked it.

    Here's my daughter at Halloween, and at her most recent birthday (when she turned 7).

    Having fun digging up some of my old M8 shots that I took over the past year

    You've got some great photos there Mike. Each photo has its own feeling to it. It is easy to see why you went back to the M8.

    Hi Mike
    The picture of your daughter with your grandmother is wonderful (of the grandmother). The halloween picture of your daughter in the black dress is also wonderful - I'm afraid it's mostly the subject who should take the credit, but at least you had the wisdom to take it . Such a lovely face.

    Great images guys!

    Mike, that shot of your daughter in her costume is just a small window to the attitude you'll be getting in about 5 years. You're toast dude!

    Yes, that'll be fine - daughter's are easy to control, you won't have any problems. . . . . . . .

    Last weekend I was away with some friends shooting some fall colours. Most of my shots were taken with the DMR. This was shot with the M8 and WATE.

    Hi There
    My upgraded M8 only just arrived before it got dark - so I had to rush out and grab a couple of shots before the sun set:

    I really admire the work you do at sunset using silhouettes of people to contrast with the brighter but pretty environs. I especially liked the one of your daughter on her horse.

    Keep up the great work and continue to have fun.

    Ah! Woody, you couldn't have said anything better. I don't have a daughter, but I do have a wife :-) She is a child bride (6 weeks younger than me).

    What am I missing here? This last page of images look like straight-from-the-camera digital snapshots. They look like they could have been shot with any number of P&S cameras...very ordinary looking.

    Sorry Kevin - my fault - that's all they are.
    First shots from returned M8 - exciting, but not worth polluting your bandwidth. I apologise.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Hi Kevin,

    This thread is fairly light-hearted, and just a chance for M8 users to have fun and share images together. There's no claim that these are portfolio-quality shots.

    Just enjoy them. As the thread title indicates, have more and more fun with the M8

    Mike

    HI Kevin
    I quite understand (actually, I'm partial to the Dog shot), but it's hard to post pictures to indicate a quieter shutter!

    I'll try not to be too hurt

    Jono,
    The dog apparently has not noticed the shutter release sound as he is looking somewhere else. Clever use of a rabbit perhaps?

    I hope you meant "clever" instead of cleaver otherwise the rabbit may totally panic and refuse you a shot! LOL

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images



    Great shot or not, it's in a way a typical Jono Slack. Stress is laid on the simplicity of the image as a whole; shape and pose of the dog are dominant, and between heaven and earth there is nothing distracting from the statue-like appearance. We see an individual dog, but we are made to think of THE dog. Jono obviously has a sense for detecting scenes that are appropriate to be associated or seen as depictions of "archetypes" collectively acquired patterns in the human soul that are passed on through the generations and that are time and again depicted anew. Touching them lightly might be one explanation for the impact of his photos on me and why I like them.
