Flight

The black spot behind the first goose is not dirt on the CMOS sensor. I did hear the goose yell "Bombs away!"

Assistance

The male goose was feeling very tired so the female goose was good enough to give him a ride.

Reflection

We were shooting our reflection in the window but didn't notice the guy hamming it up off to the side.

Dreaming of Spring

Stone

A shot of a polished stone for Theme Thursday's Mineral Challenge. I built an adapter so that I could use my old FD lenses and bellows on my 5D. I had to get very close. The stone is sitting on a dime.
This is my setup for shooting the stone (excuse the mess on my table.) The stone can be seen sitting on the dime. The depth of field is very shallow and so it all looks quite fuzzy. It was an experiment and needs lots of fine tuning, especially with the light.

My original thought for Mineral was to post a shot of a friend Al who a miner in a play. Yep, Miner Al. I opted for this instead.

He has many female friends. I don't know what he has that I don't have.

Carrot

Theme Thursday is Vegetable this week which reminded me of this monument to the mighty carrot that I shot some time ago while on one of our adventures. The base the carrot is somewhat in need of repair but the carrot still looks fresh.

Children just don't seem to pay attention these days. They half listen.

One


One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?

Animals

Okay, it is a sloppy job but I was just playing around. Again.
The poor head was actually on a wall in a Jasper Hotel. The goat head, that is.

Glass



When you are shooting photos, it is always nice to have a good piece of Glass. Not essential of course but very helpful.

The glass in this Kodak No. 3-A Folding Brownie Camera from 1902 (before I born) doesn't have great glass by today's standards but it works very well none the less. It has been decades since I used it but it worked well when I did.

You can bypass the glass altogether and use a pinhole camera but I do like some good glass in my cameras. Or, as in this camera, glass and brass.

Droplets

I shot this a few years ago. I guess the colours have faded with time.

It was Spring Today

Well, Spring-like. Maybe it was to celebrate National Pig Day. It is supposed to last a couple of days then back to the freezing weather that has no reason to be here.

My Story

My photo

I got my first camera, a Canon Ft QL, in 1974. It was supplemented by a Canon F1 in 1976 so that I could have a camera for black and white and one for colour. 

I still have those beauties but now they have eased into retirement. They relax on my shelf beside many other old beauties.

Now I use a Canon 5D MK II. How convenient to use one camera for both colour and black and white.
