Hi All
What fun I have had over the last couple of days. You may have noticed I haven't uploaded anything, not unusual for me I hear you say. This situation was not, or maybe was my fault.
I always use the same browser which is Mozilla Firefox, I came to the site a couple of days ago and when I tried to upload I received a nice message stating the website servers were to busy to allow me to upload and to try again later. Later came and went, still unable to upload.
I decided that the next day would have to do as later, off to bed I went.
I got up the following morning, stretched, ate my breakfast, drank my tea and booted up the laptop. ePhotozine here I come, I thought. Nope, don't be daft that would be to easy. Another cuppa was required for this problem.
I checked all settings on my laptop, nothing. I then sent a report to try and get some help from the tech guys at the site. The towel was soon thrown in and I watched a film instead, after commenting of course.
The tech guy came back to me with a suggestion that the image file was to large. This just didn't ring true to an experienced ePzer such as myself.
I decided to have a look round in a bit more depth. I tried a using Internet Explorer, which I hate by the way it's far to slow for me. Anyway, would you believe it, instant upload to the first point, this was further than I had got in the last couple of days.
I then set about trying to find the problem with my other browser. After uninstalling Firefox completely and the reinstalling I tried the upload again, to my surprise it didn't work again.
I downloaded another different browser to try, this time it was Safari, bingo immediate upload. That was it, Firefox has been ditched, Safari is now in its place and touch wood, working well.
I have no idea what has happened to Firefox, the tech guy suggested after I replied telling him about the browser thing that maybe an add on was causing a problem. Never mind, I will stick with Safari for now.

Todays upload, which is actually from the other day but failed to upload is another from South Gare, Redcar.
Jennifer is a boat that has been photographed a huge amount of times by many different people and in all those images you will see she is in exactly the same position. This is because she is chained to the larger chains that run along the bed of the harbour, never to move again, the only movement she makes is when the tide comes in and lifts her off the bed. This will eventually stop once her hull rots away and allows the sea to rush in.
She is in a real state of disrepair and rotting away like many of the uncared for boats in the harbour.
I decided to take a multiple exposure, I wanted to capture her as a prisoner to the harbour bed and to her mooring.
I first took an exposure of Jennifer herself and then another of the chains that bind her to bed of the harbour, luckily my camera allows multiple exposures, so this is basically straight from the camera with very little photoshop involved.

I hope you like this, thanks for any comments you might leave and spare a thought for Jennifer and the predicament she finds herself in.

I think I like your story better than the image! I am surprised that you have had a problem with Firefox ~ have you reported it to Ephotozine?

Sad to see elderly vessels in this state, but they do make extremely good photographic subjects. Hence our annual visits to Dungeness - but there we don't have to go anywhere near the water, a great advantage as far as I'm concerned Smile

Keep away from Internet Explorer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice to see a double exposure once in a while, though I tend to take reflections myself: I thought that this was a reflection at first, which on reflection was unlikely with a boat.......

Regards
Bill

Been a while since I have seen a double exposure Andy.
Good one here.
And I use Internet Explorer and have to say,no trouble with it so far.
(And I just hope I have not put a bogey on it now !!)

I do like this double exposure - not sure whether I can do it with my camera tho' - it has worked really well.

Took me ages to wean myself off of IE but thanks to the EPZ guys I finally had to go with Firefox. Never had any problems. I dunno, browers!
Glad you managed to upload this though. Super piece of work.

Desk top - IE, laptop - Firefox.... definitely belt and braces approach for me but neither have given me any trouble.

An interesting effect, but only as a one-off I think.

How wonderful to capture this in camera. It's so beautiful - the different exposures create different planes, the emphasis moves from one plane to another, everything seems to move backwards and forwards as one explores the frame. Only the name remains constant.
