Photo of the day

Visited Laos last week, back in Chiang Mai.

I had a technical glitch with my camera and these kinds were kind enough to let me keep shooting until I figured it out. This was a small walkway in a quiet part of Luang Prabang, Laos.

It looked like this guy had been sitting here smoking and hanging out all day, because he was. Near the wholesale fresh food market, Muang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Found object yesterday - I don't know what to make of this? Looks like it came from the worst recesses of the nightmares of Joel Peter Witkin or Hieronymous Bosch. It disturbs me either way. I deliberately passed the same way tonight and it wasn't there anymore. Cheers - I.

What a hideous looking doll, perhaps put together by someone with a fiendish mind before being battered by the elements, the stuff of nightmares! Sweet dreams :) P.

I’m glad I didn’t look at that before I went to bed last night.
I have always been interested by Bosch. I will have to look up Joel Peter Witkin.
 
The Blood Moon


GM5 + Helios 135mm
I like that photograph, even if fills me with envy.

I had everything set up to take some photos of the Moon on the Suffolk coast, but first we had complete overcast in the early evening, then thick grey cloud, then black clouds, distant low sheet lightning flashes, a rushing gale of wind and rain. There was no sight of the moon whatsoever.

C'est la vie!

Sorry to hear that, it was quite a spectacle. Here it was the opposite - cloudy and rainy throughout the week, but then the sky cleared completely on that night.
Only wish I had a bigger sensor haha :)

My kit is Fuji fixed lens and Oly MFT, so mostly 16Mp and the biggest only 20Mp. Nonetheless, some great shots from MFT cameras on FB and Instagram where the Moon showed clearly.

If you will indulge me - let's go for a walk about Malaga - things that caught my eye. Digital pictures I'm afraid - Nikon D700 - I haven't had my film Leicas serviced yet. Which is remiss of me. It is a f**cking expensive enterprise though - I have two of them. It is not the same using digital - different some how. I see the picture in a different way. Hard to explain. This was taken with a very expensive Nikon lens - not as good as a Leica lens though. Soul-less - some how. The world looks different through them - as it ought to be - a grand for a 50mm? Yes - well. Audrey Hepburn I think? I can do more if anybody is interested. Yours - I.

Yes please Iain.
My morning eyes can’t quite work out what’s going on there. Is it a poster in a shop window? A piece in a gallery? It’s certainly unmistakably an Iain image.
