    And I actually passed the camera off for the finishing team pic


    I'm second from the right in the back row
    Nice. Looks like a great time. Thanks for sharing.

A dry bag helps me feel more secure about the gear, but makes quick access kind of tough.
    In any case, a couple from the end of the day as we were leaving the pond after a day of fishing.

    Tim: Two very nice photos. Feels like the end of a good day. I've heard that Maine mosquitos rival Alaska's in size? What are you fishing for in the lake? Also, nice catch with the yellow bug. Do you know what it is? That's three questions? Why did i do that?

    I was part of a team of US Marshall's Service agents and US Probation Officers.

    Tim, this is a great. Good eyes, excellent capture!
    Looks somehow unfriendly though, hopefully there's not an indoor similar version.


    Jason: impressive team effort. Good job!


    Rayyan: with the Venice shot you captured the essence of the old "inner city". Excellent. Can't really based on experience for the Himalayas, but it sure looks striking


    ibcj: clean and good looking classroom. Sounds like a stimulating environnement for learning all kinds of things. Nice textures, too.


    Matt: good market shots again. From your previous posts with this kit, i must confess a preference for the results you get outside compared to indoors (limited space? light?). Maybe it's just me... or maybe because the recent street shots are simply awesome.
    Btw, today's lunch menu: asparagus, sauce Hollandaise. Hope i won't use the wrong spoon.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Down the canal. A small community of simple people from mixed origins, minding their own business in their tiny, old fashioned homes. Mostly elders, one raising their grandchildren. No sign of the parents. When in need of anything, from garden garlic to some day care, they hail each other. Time pass by as fast as the placid canal stream. And when a ray of sun appears, they gather and talk about simple things. Life is good.
    "We don't own a cell phone, so we can't take photos anymore", Louise said. "Often we see people taking photographs of us but they don' t talk with us, they don't even say hello. And then we never see them again".

    So i made a couple of series, a brought them some glossy 7" prints. They were happy, we talked a lot. About simple things.
    So i came back, and so on. Over time, i guess i became the official -though occasional, and pro bono- photographer there.

    Meet some of my friends Louise, Yasmina, Hyacine, André.

    André joined the group, staying a few feet apart. He suffers from a minor but slowly deteriorating form of dementia.
    He's Louise husband.

    - where were you this morning?
    - (no answer)
    - (a bit louder) where were you this morning?
    - (indistinct muttering)

    - did you go to the café and drink wine?
    - (immediate answer) No.

    - No?
    - No.

    - ok, show me that 10 euros bill i left on the table stand.
    - (no answer)
    - Come on, show me.
    - (half a step back, mulish stance, empty expression... no answer)

    - See? i told you. He's losing his head...





    edit: thanks all for your kind words on the last page portrait. As you can see, it was from the same series (not the same shot though).

    All with the D3X - 105VR mostly.

    Steve, i'm truly humbled by your words.
    Undeserved i must say, they are straightforward, high-minded people who lived a full yet simple life and there's so much to learn hanging around them. And it does'nt hurt that the surroundings' so nice

    Corlan. As I was collecting my swirling thoughts, trying to come up with an adequate comment on your wonderful series, Steve's comment appeared. All I can do is echo his sentiments. Giving face, name, and voice (and therefor dignity) to sometimes forgotten people is a generous, kind, and noble. Well done indeed.

    Corlan... wonderful wonderful sentiment!! While we all take great joy in capturing images, the subjects all seem to take greater joy in receiving them!

    Very very nice touch.

    Rayyan, again you grabbed the essence. Plus, the last photo is technically (even more) stunning in many ways. Can you tell us a bit more?

    In the meantime i'm definitely in line for your new book: " From Venice to the Himalayas (the photographic journey of a modern Marco Polo) ".




    OK. Now i'm your agent, so maybe i'll get a discount.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    I love weddings. So long as I am not the one getting married.

    There I am walking along, minding my own business. See a crowd in the distance. Hot day. Boat shoes, dirty t-shirt, dirty chinos. Nikon.

    The crowd all dressed up. men wearing hats, long hats. women wearing pretty
    dresses. mostly black and white. exposure could be a problem.

    Are you a guest?. No.
    Are you with him? the photog? No.

    What do you want? Disdain. Revulsion. Must have stolen the camera.

    ' I am ', I said , ' looking for the tourist information office '. Now if you will
    move to the side, please. Not forced, I hope. I said to the couple. Click. Click.


    Not my wedding. No sweat.

    Corlan: I'll second that! Nicely done. An exemplar for people like me, who are in a rush, and sometimes oblivious to others, especially the elderly.

    Are you a guest?. No.
    Are you with him? the photog? No.
    What do you want? Disdain. Revulsion. Must have stolen the camera.
    ' I am ', I said , ' looking for the tourist information office '. Now if you will
    move to the side, please. Not forced, I hope. I said to the couple. Click. Click.
    Not my wedding. No sweat.
    Rayyan: Nice image! Probably better then they got from their photog. Why are they getting married in front of the tourist Information office? Is it "iconic"?

    Cheers, Matt

    (a temporary end to the series above)

    Louise came close and asked me: "my dog's already 14, if i take him on the doorsteps, could we have a photo to remember him by? He's so cute, and shy." Took a couple of shots of the still quite active fellow, always on the move. Here's what she selected for a print:




    That day, they got a visit from a much larger, even older friend -with an eye condition. Got his photo, too:




    It was a nice day.

    Corian: Lovely photos. More importantly, you did for Louise something much more valuable. Much much more. You gave her a reason to be happy.

    +1. Good one, Rayyan.
    The Tourist office definitely add something in the picture.


    And Matt: thanks, my friend.


    And thanks, Rayyan

    I'll second what Matt says. Great shot.

    (They don't look to be in any hurry, however.)

    Corian: Nikon D700 + ZF 35/2. pp was just a simple ' s ' curve; hue/sat..
    tweaked the red/yellow up a bit. Nik sharpner pro..less than normal.
    iso=400; 2 spot readings and set the average...white arch near left; red bricks left. bracket 3 shots -1/2; -1. I like a little darker..brings up the contrast. Telling it takes much longer!!

    Let me know, if I can help further.

    Regards.

    p.s i did a gradient to control the tonality on the right when i did the ' s ' curve.

    Jason, maybe I make it sound complicated. My inadequacy as an explainer.
