+*+*+*+ You and your m43 this week +*+*+*+
I showed this first last week in reply to a question from Florida but wanted to post it again as part of the set. Also, I'm really pleased with the composition on this one.
Being a landscape nature kind of guy it is very enlightening to see that neat stuff that can be extracted from the inside of a building if you look for things. I will be looking now. I can hear it now. We're going to the mall! Why are you taking your camera?
Shot from my front doorstep... just hanging out waiting for the time to go to the snow-blower. I usually wait for end of storm or sunset, whichever comes first...
Shortly after taking photo I had to go and fetch wife home from work... Snow got removed at sunset, and again in the morning.
Reminds me of a time before I moved away. I decided to wait for the end of the storm. It warmed up and started raining. It got cold again and the rain soaked snow froze solid. The next time it was warm enough for me to chisel through the mess was Christmas Day.
I'm not surprised I still remember that even though it was about 20 years ago.
I remember the color version of the curved walk city scape and I agree the color version is even better.
I love the first squirrel shot sticking up over the snow.
I really like the 2nd and 4th.
I'm not a flower picture guy but that is a show stopper! Nice job!
Was the upside down thing an artistic decision that worked? Or was it really growing like that?

I like the simplicity of your compositions.
Between you and Yaelle I may never venture outdoors for photography again.
Thanks. I am trying to learn to make things simple and still interesting.
When no-one else is there, the camera becomes my means...to say to a wider audience, "Did you see that?" David duChemin
I am very happy with the old Tokina EL 28mm.
I'm trying to figure out where you were when you took that. I've had some experience with those myself...
Very nice but especially the third with the bridge framed through the opening in the branches of the willow. I see you had some blue skies to brighten your day though!
Great capture. Very nice set.
I like the graphic quality and the processing you used in all of them, as well as the subject matter. As a striking image, I like the third best, an extremely well planned and executed image for me!
I don't usually go to the zoo but, unlike at home, at least the models don't make weird faces when they see the camera.
Well I'm glad I'm not alone Larry! Two nights ago the temperature went up above freezing, we had a winter thunderstorm and lots of rain. Yesterday and today still above freezing slightly so there are puddles and small 'lakes' everywhere, including some basements. The good news for me is NO SNOW TO BLOW!!!
