This was one of those time I saw getting ready to happen as I was driving, so I quickly pulled my car over, jumped out and ran over.  There was a pond across the street and the woman was carrying feed in the pail for the ducks. I later found out she did this every day so the ducks knew her.

This is quite remarkable, and love your website.

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

Ken, I think you can be quite at peace with the outcome.... a sunny seaside begs for compromises--or, to put it the other way round...just decide what's important for your idea and put your 5 there.... In this case, the dark shadow, in my opinion is perfect. It´s what we see under these circumstances: in the shadows nothing...

Has anyone had  problems uploading photos recently, eg since the "update"   ?

 My preset-which conformed with the rules of the LUF-don´t work anymore. I have to reduce the size of the file below 1 MB. Furthermore I don't understand the directions given on the upload window: Gesamtgrösse 1 MB ( Total size 1 MB ) Maximum Size 1,95 MB   ???

Great series, Rog. The consistency in this work is remarkable--a sequence of color planes, sometimes shrinking to the size of a bar, a pollard or a line, with  an individual rhythm, each work the verses of  a song.... with the last verse taking an unexpected turn in the key--from minor to major...  but, in the end "longing" is good, it proves we are living  and deserves key major...

Mamiya 7 80 mm red filter. HP5 in a mixture of HC110 and Rodinal standing 42 min

Nice scene. Unfortunately with the typical effect of stand development resulting in white halos surrounding the dark parts of the photo.
