  1. As the saying goes "Birds of a feather flock together". I spotted these gulls taking advantage of a pontoon to have a rest after a hard rainstorm. I found it fascinating that they were all facing exactly the same way. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit f2.5. Shot as .dng and converted to black and white in Lightroom Classic. Hope you like it Gerry

    Yesterday I was making a photographic walking with some friend in downtown Torino, when from a park suddenly hundreds of birds started to fly. It was to fast to make a perfect focus, but over all I like the result, given the location and the background it seems a photo taken several decades ago. I wasn't sure that this has to be in the street photography. M7, Summicron-M 35/2 ASPH, Tri-X 400, Semi stand development in Rodinal 1+100 cheers Massimo
  8. From the album: Various

    (If shots taken with a Leica lens on a Fuji X camera are not allowed here, let me know.) Otherwise, criticism welcome.
  9. It was the last day of the year 2013 and I had no better idea than to try out my new Oylmpus OMD EM5 with the R Telyt 180 mm. Mounted on a monopod these are the first attempts to try out and learn more about this combo. Light was bad inside the cages so shutterspeed was 1/250 sec and aperture ca 4.5-56. and ISO consequently had to be between 800 for the cormoran and for the other 2 at 1600.
  10. As part of my PAD Project, and for Father's Day I went down to a favorite pier to take a shot of a Seagull for my Dad. He was a big fan of the beach and one of his favorite books was "Jonathan Livingston Seagull." He passed away in 2001. Quote from the book: "We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free! We can learn to fly!" Titled: "Farther" M8 + 50mm f/2 Summitar Thanks for looking!
  11. C-Lux 2 1/500 f5.6 Maximum-zoom
  12. I brought the new year in with a few photos of ducks: Canvasback Ring-necked Duck Bufflehead Mallard All photos: R8/DMR, 560mm f/6.8 Telyt, shoulder stock & monopod. All comments welcome.
  13. Friday morning I spent a few hours at the state fish hatchery at Nimbus Dam, a few minutes from home. The hatchery's water outflow often contains small fish (or portions of fish), a fact not lost on the local birds. A portion of the outflow is let into a settling pond where it eventually makes its way through percolation and direct flow to the American River, a few meters below the hatchery. Many of the local birds consider the settling pond to be a prime feeding area so among some species, the Common Goldeneye among them, 'turf' wars are fought over the best locations. Yesterday two pairs of Goldeneyes plus one bachelor male staked claims to the pond. When a neighboring Goldeneye gets too close to your claimed area, the first level of threat is to lower the head and aim toward the interloper: Both male and female Goldeneyes use this threat posture, but if the neighbor doesn't back off the male will go to level two threat, where he tosses his head back and makes a sound that is best described as a mix of a purr and a soft growl: Note the female of this pair has maintained the level one threat posture. A physical battle often takes place underwater which is out of the range of my camera's design parameters. Once the winner is decided (home court is a big advantage) the loser makes a hasty retreat (next post, too many photos for one post)
  14. At the Pacific Ocean coast in Washington state these birds were flying very low to the surf. I only caught three frames of them before they were gone into the space that seems to go on forever at the ocean. Shot with Leica MP and Elmarit-M 28mm 1/250 @ f/11 on Kodak B&W CN, and scanned with Nikon Coolscan 5000ED. Here's another one taken earlier in the day when it was raining. Shot with Leica MP and Summicron-M 50mm 1/125 @ f/11 on Kodak B&W CN, and scanned with Nikon Coolscan 5000ED. Cheers, Mike
  15. I spent last Saturday at the California Raptor Center's spring Open House, where several of the non-releasable birds were on display for an up-close-and-personal look at them. The California Raptor Center in Davis is a licensed rescue and rehabilitation facility operated by the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine: Raptor Center Keep in mind because of captive living conditions these should be considered portraits of individuals and not necessarily representative of the species. Sadie is an imprinted Northern Saw-whet Owl. Athena is a Barn Owl who was rescued and brought back to health after a collision with a barbed-wire fence broke her right wing. Spar is an imprinted male American Kestrel, full of spunk ("I'm tiny but I am a FALCON, beware!"). more in next post
  16. The local Eared Grebes and Horned Grebes have molted into their summer plumage: Eared Grebe Horned Grebe Compare the summer plumage with the basic winter coloration (photos from the last two winters): Eared Grebe Horned Grebe All photos: R8/DMR, 560mm f/6.8 Telyt. Last photo with shoulder stock and monopod, others with shoulder stock and kayak. All comments welcome.
  17. The Oak Titmouse is a member of family Paridae which inludes Chickadees and Tits (I didn't name them, I'm just the messenger!). The Oak Titmouse is primarily a California resident, with a few populations in Baja California to the south and Oregon in the north. The Oak Titmouse, like all Paridae, are the definition of the word kinetic. As its name implies it's preferred habitat is oak woodlands, where they nest in a tree cavity; this morning I found a pair bringing breakfast to the kids: technical stuff: R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO + 2x APO-Extender-R. All comments welcome.
  18. Yesterday I visited the Sierra Nevada north of Truckee California; after about a mile along a washboarded gravel road I found a meadow filled to overflowing with wild mountain light and the promise of a drenching. At the meadow's edge a pair of Mountain Bluebirds was converting invertebrates into the next crop of blue bug-eaters: technical stuff: R8/DMR, 560mm f/6.8 Telyt-R, UET-R extension tube, shoulder stock and monopod. The second photo is cropped significantly. All comments welcome.
