Just went for an ice cream and appearantly the local team manages to win something.. I'm not really into soccer but oh well.. It gave me a chance for a little streetphotography. Usually little is happening around here..

While cleaning up I find more images which I never processed in their time but which I now think are acceptable.

An image from a few years ago which I came across while cleaning up some folders with photo's. (throwing unused jpgs where I still have the raws anyhow, and raw which are unusable. Making space..)

Finally some half decent weather and something as a subject.. Pity there was a lot of wind.. But still..

Time for a little promotion..;)
Might you or other be interested, I also wrote a number of plugins for the site. Showing some basic exif, a map if you use GPS exif, wikipedia info connected to a post,and a bunch for admin tools to make the working with photography easier.
All depending on the needs and setup of course (the easier part..;)

See gerhardhoogterp.nl/2018/06/20/ for an example for the userside of things,

I was just watching this video on youtube about "should images be sharp" (youtube.com/watch?v=G8ZLlPY19u)
and started to wonder. His example photo is a bit soft also due to age and analog technology. But still, can I get away with more obvious unsharpness and still have a photo which evokes an other feeling besides "he shouldn't.. really!"

So here's an unsharp photo and my question, could I get away with it.. ;-)

It's a rainy day in the Netherlands. Luckily that comes with opportunities too.. ;-)


The last thing I saw before I passed out...

(nah, not really, but that's the feeling this image gives me.. ;)

What to say about this image?! It's in color for one and it's more about the form in the shadow which throws one off for a moment.

Years ago, when I was learning how to process my images I also played along on a site called 1000words.com as they had contests in photo manipulation.

This is one of my favorite entries

An other day, an other photo. And for some reason I like to show a "bit different" images here.

With all the talking I almost forget to share an image too on occasion. Here I liked the contrast of the single white tree against the dark background..

In the days of yore we made photograms by putting stuff on photographic paper in the darkroom, expose it to light and develop it.
Nowadays we don't need those chemicals anymore as you can do exactly the same using a filmscanner... Light shines from above through the object and the result is alike.

Just to show off my pinhole contraption and some of the results made with it on a Minolta dynax 7D. For a-mount only! For the right price it can be yours.. ! ;-D
