  • WHY SHOOT IN MONO

    Because I was born in 1938, processing in mono when I took up serious photography on early retirement, seemed like a very backward step.....a step into the dark days of the war and the earlier depression.

    During then after the late 1940 s films and magazine photography brought in technicolor and colour photographs to brighten the then, dulled population.....the rest is history, the 1960 s were a revelation of colour across the board.

    As a result, it took me three years or more before I dabbled in the.....Dark-Arts.....

    Now I appreciate mono fully, browse my portfolio to see the results of the revelation....

    I can only encourage others to....Have a Go.

  • Tea Time

    It works for me.....but then Im biased, as a very keen user of a GX7 one of the best small camera's around.

    It would work well in mono too.

    A wonderful capture Trekmaster.......love the transparency of the wings.....

    Could I have your permission to use the image as inspiration for a watercolour project I am doing please?

    It won't be a copy, tracing, just a loosely painted version of your owl .....

    I won't be offended if you say no......

  • street scene-sleeping

    A great street study of contemporary life......but.....at my age, all I can think of is.....

    I don't recall any of this kind of thing when we had National Service....we might have gone in looking like that.....but, by heck we came out as......real men, most of whom remain smart today.

    I wouldn't want a military NS today, but two years of being away from home helping others in other countries would do a world of good.

    Anyone else have observations on this?

  • JUMPIN"

    Many thanks for all the positive comments and votes folks....

    It may be of interest to note that, just recently I have stopped using the A Priority setting for my Street work......I agree that it usually garauntees a decent shot, unless, like here something is moving really fast, or the light isn't good so shutter-speed drops.

    This would have been the case here.

    Now I stay in M mode, whilst quickly adjusting the shutter-speed to suit wherever I am, practice has made this automatic now.

    I would return to A mode if indoors or at a covered market etc.....never use flash, but sometimes increase ISO.

  • Gate Post

    I like this very much for reasons other than it is a good photograph.

    Many, many moons ago, just out of National Service, I was a young joiner working for a small town general builder, for two years, I did very litlle other than repair or replace almost every gate and fence of old Council housing that all had traditional split oak and rail fencing and oak gates very much like this one. Occasionally the top of a gatepost might need to be shaped like the featured here....that added at least half an hour using hand tools, never might cutting and fitting all the rails into auger-bored mortises.

    Thanks for the memories......just like your old gate....I have grown much moss and creak in the same way.
