Hank,

 

I really like the first one. It shows him in maneuvers with the First Snail Armored Division of the front yard army.

Lovely. You must have used a very fast shutter speed to freeze their movement.

Bill,

yes, sometimes we are snails,

I mean photographer snails. Thanks for your nice support.

 

Hank,

indeed, I pondered about how to capture the "takeoff". The solution was an open lens. Thanks for your snail-time.

 

Paul,

 

yes, indeed the fellow was quite quick and I thought to be quick also because otherwise he would have stopped his nice gliding. Thanks for sharing your time with this subject.

 

Stuart,

I did shoot open lens 1.2 to get the effect on the second picture. The first one you are right, The fellow moved quite "fast" . Next day I went there again but no snails could be seen.

Great subject Iduna. I like the B&W one best.

 

Snails are much maligned and worthy of our photographic attention. Today I listened to a radio gardening programme where someone had written in to say she steps on every snail she sees:confused: Your pictures tell a different and much kinder story.

 

Best regards

 

Andrew

Andrew,

how nice to report on the radio programm. Yes, I admit that gardeners are ready to kill the ordinary type of small black and those red naked snails which are spoiling our plants. But these with a house are so nice and pretty. These are not being seen plenty of them either. Thanks for joining the snail level..

thanks, John. I am glad you like the series. I can imagine more and next time I'll use a macro lens perhaps. Or do a longtime exposure ...

      From the time I was a kid, and we used to visit my grandmother who lived alone in a spooky old house on the edge of the Gamble Estate (Proctor & Gamble founder), I have always been fascinated by decaying old houses.

      Coming of spring is keeping us in suspense this year. But due to cold temperatures we have clear air and chsnging light provides interesting situations. Thus we went to a nice location from which one has a good view. It was saturday before Easter and if you look closely a few bonfires and namely their smoke can be seen. After this shot sun went don wuickly and the whole area was pestered with biting smoke.
