HuntingSand's recent activity

  • Replied in Downtown Xi'an
    You are welcome. It's that pausing on the sidelines of your two protagonists which prompted me to link to Weng Peijun's work. He deliberately introduces the notion of gender and the city, too, ...
  • Thank you Rodrigue. It required a bit of PP, but I thought the subject worthwhile. My greetings to you and Edgar, Thomas
  • Replied in Choi
    I am off to Taipei with the T tomorrow, btw. Unfortunately no time for a HK outing this time. I did take a look, my dear Choi, thanks for the link. I've been to Wuxi/Huishan guzhen a couple years ...
  • Replied in Choi
    Choi, you are right, although that shrunken two-seater version below is a strange sight to behold. Love this image, a whole street full of bugs and beetles. Ah! What do you miss about it that the 9 ...
  • Indeed, except old Ferdinand never really knew what to do with colors. Don't think he would've approved of the color combination of this specimen on the sales floor. :-|
  • Try and get it back yourself! You must've had a wild past, John... ;-)
  • Created discussion thread The happiest bug alive!
    Seen in West Oakland, CA: :-) Thomas
  • Funny, that. I always develop from DNGs, and the background colors got brushed and desaturated by -70 in LR6 in order to have the main subject stand out. I used the XV on a couple occasions and ...
  • Ha! Thanks, that seems to be the popular choice, Rodrigue also pointed this one out. The gallery is going down on Friday.
  • Replied in Rodrigue
    Thank you Rodrigue. I know very well that you have an eye for beauty. It was always going to be a temporary online exhibition. My Iran, Rome and other galleries are no longer online, either, they ...
  • Replied in Art
    Art, yes ineed, quite a bit of political commentary there, disguised as wall art. Thanks for checking in. Thomas _________ Photographic collections at
  • Not sure I understand, but thanks anyway :-)
  • Created discussion thread T in Paris - Last orders
    If anyone is interested in my street and architecture images from Paris shot with the T, now would be a good time. The gallery has served its purpose and will be taken down some time this week. Lin ...
  • So, did you and P try any of the wine? I heard it's conducive to creating the elusive Leica look, after the third glass or so. Safe travels! Thomas (Off to Taiwan in a little bit, to take more t-sh ...
  • Very nice work and print job, Rodrigue. You decided to concentrate on contours only, which is something I haven't seen from you a whole lot so far. You usually fill the frame and provide some ...
  • I don't know how the Noct behaves on the Sony, but on the M9, it is/was a very special relationship. That's what Leica Marketing says all along...
  • Are you talking to me? Just say what you have to say...! Or maybe I misunderstood the question? :-P
  • It's not a lens that you learn how to use in a day. It can be wild, unpredictable, revealing, essentializing (I have a story or two to explain what I mean by that, but not here), disguising, or as ...
  • Nice write-up and images, Joachim. You've been around the block (several times) it seems, the little Canon in tow. I have mine since launch, and am happy with the results, especially from 35mm ...
  • Oftentimes, the "elevating" agency and function of photography is stronger than the ideal of truthful representation.
