    What do you put on to them Leo.......some folks here like to add cheese....or jam prior to placing the topside under the grill.

  • And.........TO CAP IT ALL....

    A wonderful response thank you all......

    Hi, Richard....

    I much appreciate your comments and can see what you envisage.......

    I chose my framing because it might make a viewer question how the third paling missed getting a cap of snow.....it just adds that bit of doubt.

    I must admit to not favouring borders on posted work, I would rather let the shot speak for itself.....

    Whereas when mounting and framing works for exhibition or sale a good mount is essential....unless....a large frameless Print.

  • only time will tell...........

    Your subject today, looks like a very wise, loving granny Sawsengee.

    A beautifully processed character study.

  • Fishy tails

    Love this.....

    I too have designed and made many WIRLIGIGS , but mine are made mainly from wood, except for the metal vanes and wire mechanism.

    This is a Classic bit of....Folk-Art...... it is beautifully made and will probably end up in a museum worth a fortune.

    Compton-Verney Art Gallery in Warwickshire has an amazing collection of English Folk Art that includes wirligigs similar to this one.

    I made working replicaís of some of them a few years ago.

    How can she twist her body around like that ? ? 🤓

  • Zenit 3M

    I owned two ZENITHS during the 1980s, but could hardly afford the cost of film and processing, the wait for results was also an enthusiasm killer for my quick-fire Artistic mind.
    Both cameras were used, but generally for reference work or for holidays etc....

    I gave both away when I went digital......I wish now that I had kept one, for old-timeís sake.

    Beautifully taken Leo.

    Get two more almost exactly the same.......and you will have a set . 🤓


    P . S . Great pic by the way.

  • Street portrait

    Morning Eddie......

    Good to see you posting again......you have a very different approach to capturing character than fellow member Sawsengee, a softer, more considered approach that really works.

    It is great to be able to compare the different ways that portrait photographers record, then SEE their subjects.

    Please keep them coming.

  • tailor in Haridwar

    Another fantastically strong portrait here.......he reminds me of the Indian watch-repairer who has traded his craft on our very small local market for around 20 years now.....always there, to be trusted, and fastidious and honest in all his dealings.

    You portraits make me wonder if there are any bald men in India ? .....a good head of hair seems to be the norm.

    I look forward to your regular posts.

    Thank you Leo.

  • dreamy eyes........

    The .....Lines of Life, reveal hard work, family commitment and harsh conditions tempered by those soft - sad eyes.

  • Crocus Flavus

    Early crocus are particularly beautiful just now, they are very difficult to resist for a photographer.

    A wonderful example.

  • The Detectorist

    I spent many happy and lucrative years doing this, on the coast and inland.....nothing quite like, finding a long lost ring, a part hoard or just enough dish to pay parking, a coffee and a bun....
    Detecting is a very healthy, green hobby.....all good detectorists fill holes, replace turf and get rid of rubbish.

    A great pic by the way.

  • Profile

    My kind of gritty mono portrait......hence my award.

    • 6 Mar 2018 1:01PM

    A brilliantly observed perfect example of good Street Photography.

  • When is the first day of Spring?

    Hey Leo......I enjoy your regular posting of excellent quirky/witty/well thought out photographs.....but ....

    ......could you keep your sub-zero temperatures and snow in your area please? 🤓

  • A chance encounter............

    Another beautifullly seen and captured character study from you......something to look forward to on a very regular basis.......Thank You!

    With reference to his spectacles......herecin the UK most opticians and health organisations have collecting boxes for discarded glasses .....I had three changes of prescription glasses after undergoing cataract and then, later, retinal surgery.....which left me with three pairs of unusable specs.
    These all went into one of the health charity boxes .....I often wonder who might be wearing them now and where.

  • Girl And A Virtual Street

    My kind of .....Street Shot......

    It takes an observant eye.....speed.....and....skill ....to capture a scene like this.

    Top marks from me.

    • 24 Feb 2018 11:42AM

    Thank you everyone.....

    Iím still in awe about just what this £30 vintage lens is capable of, once hyperfocal or zone Focusing is mastered.....or.....just set it to ....Infinity.....and have instant photographic fun.

    Lots to learn about it yet,

  • All wrapped up & nowhere to go........

    Another incredible character-capture Sawsengee......your unique, beautifully produced portrait record already has great Social Value, in my eyes.
    I admire your dedication, and obvious ability to communicate with your subjects so that they allow you into their thoughts for a brief spell.

    A ...Spell it is too.....you capture the very essence of character and being.

    I must apologise if I donít comment on every one....but please keep them coming; your work gives me great pleasure.

    • 22 Feb 2018 9:00AM

    Thank you ....All.

  • Millipede #1

    Is it a Russian version of Ken Doddís .....Tickling Stick....I wonder?

    Another fine image Leo.......your winter certainly brings out the surrealist out in you.

    Apparently we are in for a dose of Russian winter here in the U.K. next week.
