ahhhh the second pic the sun is too far around the mountain and it's the shaded side. Idiot. Oh well I'll learn ๐Ÿ˜†

Went for a walk yesterday to scout out possible beaver locations. I didn't take my camera, only a pair of binos and my phone. It was a great evening though.

Took a couple of quick pics on my way around the Mt Taranaki today (Mt Egmont for older folks).

I think one day I need to take my time a drive around the and watch the clouds. There were a couple of great views of it with the sun coming through the clouds which would have been awesome to capture.

G85, 12-60mm.

I mistyped the address for 's status page (status.flickr.net) as static.flickr.com. As the parent domain of their static image servers, it does exist. The home page is...not what you'd expect.


Hurt my knee it seems today, so chilling out tonight reading my Panasonic G85 manual.


Ahhh, I'll upload some RW2 raw files to raw.pixls.us/ and hopefully will set it up correctly. ๐Ÿ˜

Found a thread on another camera on discuss.pixls.us/c/software/da where they said to do that, so maybe they just need the files to set the input correctly; I should give them the chance to do that. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love digging in vacation pictures. Sometimes one finds a picture that would be great in B/W

Interesting, this looks about like the range I'm out when I change input profile to sRGB in darktable (to match sRGB as set in the G85).

Down the bottom where is says Gamma, 2.2EV is about the amount I'm out ๐Ÿค”

Feel free to share you fails with ๐Ÿ˜‰.

There's a gallery of FotoFails at fotofails.photog.social too ๐Ÿ˜‰

New photographers could use some encouragement.

hmm, when sharing the exported jpeg from darktable I'm noticing the darker image, maybe I need to lighten a touch before exporting hmm ๐Ÿค”

I did a edit on a photo I took this week at a friends workshop. I'm just trying things out, working out the software.

A little late, but as promised.
I shot a roll of #120 with my in .
When loading the film into the development tank, it caught a little light.
Apart from the light damage I really like these pictures.

That camera has really convinced me :D

I scanned them at 2400dpi, which seems to be a natural limit, but that yields about 5200x5200 pixels, so that's pretty nice

Practicing again with my snoozing cat.

Had to walk over to another branch for work today and took the camera along. Saw a lot of turtles and a Rainbow Lorikeet exiting its hollow.

These are a few shots from the grounds of a hotel in that isn't there anymore.

The open-air lounge jutted out over made of . A bridge labeled Kapu (forbidden) led to the next resort over, which had already been torn down.

It was on the Kona (west) side of the Big Island, and was demolished last year to make way for an educational/cultural center. Since there are several heiau ruins on the property, that's probably a better use of it.

Chatted with @Vyllibh and @54ward about some BW photos earlier and it made me wanted post a couple of mine.

Took my new toy to my wiring job tonight and snapped of some practice shots.
