Camera not so Obscura

Camera not so Obscura

And my passion continues with the regressive nature of camera lens purchasing, namely prime lenses over forty years old. The best wide angle lens?.......two steps backwards.

And For Today......Nothing.

And For Today......Nothing.

Standing in knee high damp grass and carefully eying the shifting landscape across the water through my viewfinder, the eagerly anticipated bracketed shot provided more than just the workable images I was hoping for. Shot one, click..shot two, click...shot three 'boink...crunch...tinkle...thunk!' Ah bless you Canon 5d, as the proverbial horse can throw a shoe it appears that you have just thrown the main mirror. It was a long walk back to the car.

The Humble Art of Etiquette

The Humble Art of Etiquette

My presence within this splendid community has been brief with my understanding of formalities, behaviour and etiquette still in the process of being learnt. I am humbled and extremely grateful for any interaction from other creative brothers and sisters through the medium of watching and favourites. I post this with a huge thank you to all of you who have taken their time to look at some of my creative curiosities and voiced their favourable approval for what I spend most of my life doing, once again I thank you all.
