*** This Week Through Your M4/3 2018.05.19 ***

*** This Week Through Your M4/3 2018.xx.xx ***

Off to my daughter's uni today so may not be around so much.

Good morning to everyone wherever you are in the world...

  • Please reply to my original post when submitting your own pictures.
  • That’s reply to my ORIGINAL POST when submitting your own pictures.
  • Give your reply a title.
  • Leave your guns and knives at the door. Keep it polite. There are plenty of other threads if you can’t manage that.
  • First thread kicks off Saturday morning (UK time).
  • Don’t add any photos after my ‘POST NO NEW PICS’ message (reasoning below).
  • Newbies encouraged, any standard.
  • Avoid wasting thread space with replies such as “Thanks n/t”
  • Try to avoid separate posts with pictures of a similar theme. Put them all in the same post to avoid filling the threads too quickly.
  • Photographs do not have to have been taken this week.
  • Images are often more impressive when viewed large.
  • Pictures of ducks in the local park? C’mon, you’re better than that.
  • Posting here implies you’re happy to receive a critique of your work.
  • You can post links to external websites but people in here tend to ignore them.
  • Apologies if I don't reply to everyone. This thread is becoming more and more popular and therefore more time-consuming. So…
  • PLEASE TRY TO COMMENT ON SOME OTHER PEOPLE’S WORK. That includes YOU newbies…it helps to take the strain off of me a little.

***PLEASE NOTE***

We will start the next part of this thread before this one is full. At around 110/150 posts. This does not mean the current thread is closed, but please don't post any new PHOTOGRAPHS to it.

  • Please continue to post COMMENTS and REPLIES to any thread but when a newer one has been launched, post your new photographs to that.
  • The reasoning is that if you’ve posted a picture in an earlier thread there'll still be room for you to receive a comment on it later in the week.
  • It also prevents tail-enders in earlier threads getting no comments at all because the thread to which they have posted is full.

Cape of Good Hope
1

To my shame I thought the Cape of Good Hope was the southernmost tip of Africa. It's only when I visited South Africa this year that I discovered it wasn't. Cape Agulhas is the southernmost point, about 150 km east of the Cape of Good Hope. Cape Agulhas marks the boundary between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Although both Capes are feared by sailors and are surrounded by shipwrecks. To be clear, my shot is the Cape of Good Hope, the South-Westernmost point. I would have loved to have spent longer there and explored lots of different lighting but I was with friends.

Re: Cape of Good Hope

Great composition. I like the light, and the fact that the lady looks out of the frame.

Reflection in an eagle's eye

I took my new 100-400mm to a bird of prey centre yesterday to check it out. Between flying displays I took some shots of raptors and vultures in ther enclosures. On checking them out I found this shot (100% crop):

And this one (vulture's eye)

Spring in Hertford, UK

All taken this morning on my way to/from the gym with my GX1. Much as I lust after a newer model, I think making more use of the one I have is the better option.

The first image shows my current work place.

Attack!

Marco Emilio Lepido Points the Way.

Whilst I was out on my Saturday stroll through town before meeting a friend for our weekly “aperitivo”, I came across this motley bunch of far-left demonstrators.

I think it had something to do with Palestine, but it looked more like the “Anni di Piombo” (years of lead) generation meeting up to feel young again and talk about happier times.

Meanwhile Senator Marco Emilio Lepido points us to the new that advances. One half of our probable new government were out canvasing for members at the end of the street where our Roman founder was pointing.

I’m a bit out of practice with “street photography”, so yes the pictures are a bit iffy. The LX 100 is a nice camera for this sort of photography.

Re: Cape of Good Hope

Interesting. Looks like a wonderful place

My Uncle who was in the navy when Britain still had a Navy visited loads of places around the world, always said that South Africa was a beautiful country.

Re: Cape of Good Hope

Looks like another beautiful beach that nobody is swimming in because they don't want to be eaten by great white sharks. Great vantage point. Really like the framing too.
