A manual adapter allows my Nikon 50mm f1.8 to fit the G2 (shooting wide open), while the bigger picture is seen through a Lumix G Vario 7-14mm (f4 @ 1/8th sec.) You didn't think I would set up the tripod, surely, even if I could find it Wink
My ultimate aim is to lighten the load on my back for long days walking round Montparnasse, Père Lachaise, Montmartre . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. .

I do not normally write numbers all over my musical notation but on this occasion used them as shorthand - I was taking dictation from a CD for an impatient melodeon player and transposing the melody simultaneously. The fellow never came back for the completed score, so now 'Sharon Eubank's Waltz' is my party piece instead!

I love these two Bill, especially V1, it's just so different! Great work (on all levels!)

#1 for me Bill, always a fan of shallow DOF; have you tried converting to mono to get rid of the slight purple and green bokeh fringing?

I am a bit suspicious of these ones Bill.
I think perhaps you may be writing a code book for MI6 !!
A different and interesting subject matter here.
And I shall refrain from that old chestnut of,''Many a fine tune played on an old fiddle'' !!

V1 is a delight....if you can take dictation from a cd and transpose it at the same time, you are a musical genius...is there no end to your talent?


I think you've scored with these Bill Smile love no1 as an abstract, fine captures both.

Pity you can't do a link to the music Bill. Be nice to hear it. I like pictures of music as they always look as if they're dancing. Smile

Great photographs. V1 in particular. Real time from a CD and transposed as well? I look on in wonder.

Sadly I never learnt to read music so always had letters written all over the paper! My friend could read music and would play the piece on the recorder, I'd listen to it and play it from there. two carefully considered images here Bill.

Wonderful Bill, I had to write music as part of the curriculum at school but couldn't do it now Smile

Have a UA as well.
I love the simplicity of this...It just seems so right.

Just like the v1, close-up music score image, today, Bill. V2 is excellent & well-togged in its own right. Nice work,...Mate.

The first version is a very attractive image. I'm also interested in the musical angle. Very impressed that you can write out a tune from a CD. Regards, John
