If it's not breaking the "rules" of Rob's thread, can I say I think this is a lovely image Mike? I love the combination of energy and stillness and the way the eye is lead.
Cheers, David


Dave, the only 'rule' I'd like to see observed is that folks don't feel obliged to critique with advice! The rest of the section allows that, and I just thought it would be nice to have a slot where pics stand alone without criticism and second-guesses.

Well I'm here to break the theme with a little Monday afternoon irony:




Xpan/45mm, HP5+ in Rodinal


Hi Toke

Irony indeed, and a photograhic situation where added titles would be superfluous!

It's facile to criticise overweight people, and I've been as guilty as the next to so do, but on further thought I now wonder if it isn't more to do with declining standards of family life: without wanting to stirr a nest of hornets, I believe more than ever that the stay-at-home wife contributed a hell of a lot more than she was ever given credit for. My own stayed at home when the kids came along, but after some years she felt the need to test herself again against the outside world. She returned to chemistry and managed to struggle through for a while, but the domeerstic pressure became too much and she decided to return home. Further gainful employment was when she worked on photographs with me, y nada mas.

I have arrived at the conclusion that it's the advent of both spouses working that has pushed the cost of living up into the crisis zone. Before that, people who put in the effort did very well, thank you, as a one salary family; as soon as wives started to work outwith the home front, the shops quickly put up prices to harvest the freshly available capital and it has never stopped since, to the level that two salaries are no longer an option, they are a necessity! Effing greed of the middle man.

Sorry, the point: well, good home cooking seldom seems to fatten people with junk; how do you get to be a good chef unless by doing it every day?

Hey Tom, is that water in that shot?

All seriousness aside, I don't often make an image that I'm REALLY happy with, but this one turned out pretty well...



Mike.
Mike,
That's a very nice Great Blue Heron! (See, even I can identify some critters.)

Hi Toke and Rob,

When I saw your "irony", I had to look again to be sure that wasn't a tee shirt of mine.
I'm about to bite the (low-calorie) bullet and start a serious weight-loss program that has worked extremely well for a friend, who went from many years of overweight to downright skinny, and has stayed that way for a couple of years now.

I have a next-door neighbor who owns a terrific bakery, and she gave us all of her test samples while she was preparing recipes for her first cookbook. That, and the fact that at an age when my taste buds are supposed to be losing gusto, unfortunately I just still really enjoy good food.

A friend sent me a jpeg of a few of us photographers together, and I'll have to admit I immediately photoshopped it to remove several inches from my middle.

Cheers,

Eric

Nice image; are you also one of those who craves a square sensor in a 35mm body?

Rob C

Thanks, Rob, but my first thought about that was, 'Isn't that what Lightroom is for?'  That and I still have a Yashica Mat 124G, although 120 film gets harder to find every year.  And thanks to others for the compliments!

Obesity is definitely an issue, especially but not exclusively in the US.  I don't know if there's any one specific cause, but I found Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution show quite good.  I wonder if the people in that town have followed through...

UK celebrity chef Jamie Oliver sets his sights on Ipswich, west of Brisbane, as the first Australian location for his health cooking campaign.

That strikes me as a rather Scottish looking beast! On a bad day.

In case anyone likes sea-related pics, just to let you know I've now stuck up a new gallery of such called, believe it or not, Sea! (Other shots I'd scanned have vanished within the computer, leading me to think that disater is just around the corner. However, I've copied most of what I want onto cd and an external hard-drive, but I dread a failure nonetheless.)

One set of pics was done for a friend selling a ketch, the rest were for fun and stock whilst having fun.

Nope, not a Yugo, but that, of itself, reveals a good memory!

Or even a Nash or a Studebaker.

Rob, I kinda expected you to be a '59 Cadillac kind of guy, with the tail fins and especially the bumper boobs.

Eric, I am! Not that I've ever owned one, worst luck, but that's exactly where my dream car is located.

Actually, there's another verison, somewhat older than the '59 that also has fins and boobs instead of sunglasses on its head.

No, not even a DeSoto nor a Kaiser.

Looking for a New Zealand image I stumbled upon this one. I hope the antipodeans get a chuckle.
