I've knocked the idea around a few times, may be worth trying to see if it sticks.

Basically, I thought it might be nice to have a spot where we can hang pix that aren't looking for 'critique', that exist just for the hell of it, and seemed to be a good idea at the time they were sketched.

I kick it off with a self portrait shot in the office by looking out of the door.

Hi Mike

My first thought was: Witches of Eastwood, followed by Blair Witch Project.

Nice of you to post it because though it's a pissing-with-rain sort of morning, 09.42 hrs for me, I think the clock goes back tonight and I get an extra hour in my pit. And best of all, the snow we get is usually on the mountains! However, it does mean that I might be an early loser of domicile if the sea rises, which it seems to be doing.

Early as it is, I discovered that if I put an 11cms piece of barra (French bread) into the toaster, when it's ready, it shrinks to 90.90909%  of its original length - to 10cms. That's not to say, of course, that I always manage to cut an exact 11cms length every time; for a snack, I prefer longer with cucumber and tomato, which is where I originally discovered the phenomenon of format change, if not its order of magnitude. The reason that I discovered the change had nothing to do with gravity and falling apples, just that I expected to have cut sufficient length to accommodate three slices of tomato but ended up with base for about two-and-a-half.

Not a lot of people knows that.

Rob, I was thinking: don't know if it's possible to correct the OP title but maybe without prejudice is "too short" and some users that would like the idea would not see the thread.
Because it's a good idea loaded to be a big thread.
The thing could be: without prejudice: post your pictures that aren't aimed to critic
something like that, don't really know with mny englisn but, a more journalistic title?

I think the only way to change the title is via the Administration - I agree that it would be a nice extra, permanent spot to have.

I posted a comment on your image in the Pro section.

Another from last night, and the foreground to the 'portrait' posted earlier, the main thing I was actually thinking about, not portraits at all.

Let's see: if I get the film into the post on Monday, then it may get to Barcelona on Tuesday (with luck), get processed the next day, arrive back here possibly two days later... and I could pick it up from the post office the following week!

Can't really fight that side of the argument, can we?

;-)

It ain't Torres, it is cold English Breakfast tea.

I was tempted to make a religious reply about the hat, then I realised that I wasn't quite sure which group would find offence and decided to play safe! Do you think the Bretons would also find a hat remark distasteful?

;-)

I think that rain and cobble stones are a great tool for photographic effects. Those guys in Paris sure used them a lot; in Glasgow, we risked being killed by a tram if we didn't pay attention. Perhaps the people in Paris faced the same dangers too, but they were existentialists, which makes all the difference... What did you use to capture?

The last one from last night (I'm pushing my luck, I know, but it's a near-virgin thread) is here.

It was the single business instrument that lived with me from '66 until we both became redundant. I think it loved me, but my wife was never the jealous type.

Hallowe'en Ghosts

In honour of the day and all...  Could put this in the 'Clouds' thread I suppose.

2 Toreros.


Great cropping in the first one, and the embarrassment of being the fancy dressed palooka in the second one is, in itself, enough to end the practice even beyond Cataluña!

The faded out background in the second one gives it a sort of old-fashioned photograph look... you haven't copied a Capa, have you?

No, original picture is as you see it, the only thing I did was to use silver effex to give this sort of vintage look. I normally never do that because it's not my cup of tea, I did it with fun intention because it was at the time Cataluña prohibited corridas.
