    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Nice photos but there is something odd about that outfit (either it doesn't fit the person or the person does not fit it).

    I am throwing in more (just two) street shots from Barcelona. Short story.

    What gets me (after overcoming the initial distraction) is that her right ankle is in the same awkward position in both shots. Did she sprain her ankle when she left the scene?

    Vivek, that first one is absolutely great. Looks like something Irakly would have staged

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Ten days ago, I participated in what was called a "photo-walk". Taking photos together with a bunch of other people isn't my favourite thing, but it was fun anyway, although more social than really photographic. Here are two of the other participants, chimping at sunset. D80 with 85mm f/1.8 @ 2.0

    Now, you are making me , Jorgen. Life as we know it, see it, experience it is full of drama. Thanks!

    (Irakly is quite a man, isn't he? Putting so much ideas in every frame!)

    Irakly would have staged it a night with slasher lighting, and had a lecherous drunk clown peeping out the background

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Disagreements are part of politics, and always were. In Thailand, the conflicts take strange shapes sometimes. Like when those in opposition take to the street, and stay there. For weeks.

    Now they've occupied the garden around Government House, the building where the cabinet is supposed to have their meetings. And the streets in the area. This morning, it all looked very peaceful. A bit like a protest camp for Thai people of all ages and backgrounds, wearing yellow T-shirts. Which is what it is, basically.

    Hopefully, they will reach some kind of agreement soon. As it is now, it looks a bit untidy.

    Here's a photo from the garden this morning. Government House in the background. D80 with Tamron 24-135 @24mm and f/11

    But all is not noise and chaos in Bangkok these days. Outside the occupied gardens of Government House, the protesters have made a small, makeshift shrine under a canvas roof, so that participants can take care of their spiritual needs.

    D80 with 70-300mm ED @ 70mm and f/6.3

    Thanks, both of you. I have to admit, after not having shot with the Fuji for a few months, that I'm surprised how much I can get out of that camera. Not least conversions to b&w come much easier, with an enormous headroom for contrast adjustments.

    Here in Thailand, a rather famous TV-chef is losing his other job... as prime minister.
    Conflict of interest, they say.

    And the cabinet meetings are moved to the airport.
    Too crowded at Government House.

    But the Sky-Train stays on track.

    You've done it again Jorgen, you've covered the essence of "its all a farce" with this one, very intuitive, your images come from a deep understanding of the culture. They're bringing back many memories and making me miss Thailand.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    For some reason, in this country where absolutely excellent food can be found almost anywhere, some people have this idea that dried squid tastes good. Although the opinions may be somewhat divided about the taste, there's no doubt that it's rather smelly, so protective gear is absolutely recommended.

    Ha ha... yes, my ex-ex-gf managed to convince me some eight years ago that it tasted better than the odor would indicate. I can assure you: it doesn't. I've reached the conclusion that, most places in Asia, if it looks inedible, it probably is inedible. Life is to short to eat bad food

    If you think that a canoe is a funny, little boat, moving at a leisurely pace around a pond, just watch it when 55 Thai professionals go flat out down Chao Praya river.

    It has been a while.. Jorgen good show! I love the boat race shots.

    I also like Carlos' "Target" parking lot shot. Lovely catch!

    Whatever happened to Jono?

    I am throwing in a mix here. In the past several days things have been a bit chaotic..


    Gaudi's "Apartment", Barcelona


    An IR capture of an audition


    A stink bug macro, ~1.2X

    Thanks, Steen and Vivek.

    Lovely photo from the Gaudi apartment, Vivek. I like they way you combine seemingly unrelated people into one group, as if connected by destiny for a fraction of a second, never to be separated again, except for outside of the photo, but we don't know about that, do we? The outside world, I mean, the real one.

    Nothing of importance is happening there, is it?

    Words or no words is always a question. I always give my photos a title, and sometimes there's a story. Do they represent restrictions? Possibly. But words can also be very non-descriptive, and add confusion rather than explanation

    How does that sound?
    Maybe "What was she thinking?"

    Whatever she was thinking, she appears to have telepathic powers!

    Here is an attempted "stealth" photography (and utter failure due to a conspicuous DSLR).

    Vivek, that is not scratching, they are communicating, probably in Martianese. I know a Martian when I see one

    That's a manuscript for the three hour drama: "I have conquered this woman, and she's mine." In the final act, she'll leave him and run away with her art teacher, who later turns out to be gay, and so on...

    She looks very self-assured. I'm sure that she can take care of herself.

    There are ups and downs in this life, many of each.

    D80 with Tamron 24-135 @ 24mm, f/3.5 and 1/10s (Hence the motion blur, which adds to or detracts from the image. Not sure about that yet. I would have upped the ISO and taken a couple more, but the guard was closing in on me, with the intention of telling me not to take photos, so I left, unable to fulfill my intention ).

    Sad to hear they do that sort of nonsense at malls in Asia as well. We have some very scenic open air malls here in South Florida but the guards are very over-wrought. They think I am casing the stores with my camera rigs. I assure them that thieves don't use higher end Nikons or Leicas to prepare for villainy. Camera phones are usually enough for them (the smarter ones anyway).
