  1. Today
  2. Yes there are Anti-Newton glass carriers for scaners, but I believe they are expensive. I know NIKON made one for the 9000 Chuck
  3. Reminds me of some pictures I took. All I had to do is step out my front door and photograph what I saw across the street. A bunch of 12-15 year old boys playing pickup basketball in a driveway and street. Tags, boys playing basketball, youth, teens, juveniles, street basketball, pickup basketball, companionship, sport, fun, competition, etc. It was only later, developing them, I noticed mixed races. Diversity was the farthest thing from my mind at the time.
  4. A battery swapping station for Gogoro electric scooters in Taipei. $$ Country: Worldwide Usage: Presentation or newsletters, Use in a presentation/talk (eg,Powerpoint and Keynote) or in an editorial newsletter. Start: 17 February 2020 End: 17 February 2025
  5. Yesterday
  6. I’m a big fan of naps! Take em when I can, usually not longer than a half hour.
  7. It's just possible that he didn't take all the care he needed to because he was just filming it I suppose. Here's a review in which the reviewer says that sometimes you have to try a few times before the film lies flat. He adds a cardboard mask for his slightly smaller Hasselblad frames, I would think that a mask for the individual frame being scanned would be best. http://www.sebastian-schlueter.com/blog/2016/6/15/mounting-medium-format-scans-with-lomography-digitaliza The Imacon scanner is very good for medium format because the holder is curved once it enters the scanner as if on a 'virtual drum', as they call it. However it can be less good for something like 6x17 because the top of the holder, the outside of the curve, moves in relation to the bottom of the holder, the inside of the curve. A bit of judicious tape here and there helps a lot.
  8. 331,000 images in 12 years. Astounding - you must be one of the highest image count individuals on Alamy. How many cameras have you burned through?
  9. John, I didn't want take on the roll of Science Guy in my blog, but naps are in fact good for your health.
  10. I wonder how many of the drivers that braved the seafront flooding understand the corrosive properties of salt water? As an aside, this is an image passed QC and tagged on the 12th ready for sale on 13 Feb but still waiting for the database to update 😞
  11. The problem local to me is idiots who think 4x4s are somehow resistant to cross flow. A causeway floods - depth wise it should not be a problem even for little hatchbacks, but the water flows from one side of the road to the other. Hard. Hatchback drivers tend to look at the water and decide not to chance it - 4x4 drivers develop pretentions of "survival out in the rugged wilds" with "this is what we have 4x4 for" and do risk it. Then have to be recovered when the water promptly pushes them off the side. I love my off roaders but they do have to be used properly.
  12. So some people are going to use Brexit as an excuse for blatant profiteering by raising prices when they have no legal or moral cause to do so. Just like some other people would have continued using being a member of the EU as an excuse for blatant profiteering. So yes you can say Brexit will be the cause of unscrupulous profiteering. Just like everything else in life is a cause of unscrupulous profiteering. As for other agencies - if said bank charges this fee for accepting payments from the UK (when there is no legal reason to do so) but does not charge this fee for accepting payments from say the USA, then it does kind of blow a hole in said banks claim that the charge is related to the UK being outside the EU. What other agencies who are non UK and non EU have to do with it is as a check on consistency or an indication of blatant rip off. If they did not charge this fee for other countries before Brexit then it proves that the reason of being non EU is a pile of cow droppings. The UK leaving the EU is not going to affect how a bank in Germany trades with companies in the USA.
  13. Thank you John! Yes, Japan is very pricey. But it's well worth visiting. I was just passing by (Bangkok -- Vancouver flight with long layover in Tokyo), so I hopped on train for city tour. Lots to photograph, from architecture to people. Extended visit to Japan, incl. Mt. Fuji, is on my bucket list. Stitching depends on camera I am using. If little Sony Rx, then it's in-camera automatic. If SLR (Skytree shot), then Photoshop
  14. I thought exactly the same. So much for the clever magnetic clamping procedure... Would a glass carrier could give newton rings problem though? Simple simple cross bars would help. Mark
  15. WOW, I can see curvature in the film original from just this image. MF needs a glass carrier. Chuck
  16. Very nice. How do you do your stitching? Japan has a reputation for being pricey. A friend of mine joined the throngs climbing Mount Fuji a couple of years ago. That might be a cheaper alternative.

  18. I've always been a big fan of the siesta. Sad to see it disappearing. Our bodies (mine anyway) seem programed to nap for a short period during the afternoon. It's also a very civilized ritual. If more people in high places took siestas instead of tweeting idiocies, the world would be a much better place. P.S. I think you're correct about the too-busy business world being the culprit. For example, in Mexico, traditionally the land of the long snooze, the siesta has all but disappeared in urban areas.
  19. not only here. i innocently asked a travel forum if anyone had heard from EU mobile providers last year (pre the Oct 31 original deadline) as i was heading into UK and get blasted right away,... added: back to my concert in the park....
  20. Hi Paul Saw that comp elsewhere, nice work. Good to see you last week. See you at Cannes where I can feature in the background of more of your images
  21. Alamy Photograph in a Montage on theweek.co website https://theweek.com/articles/895717/bloomberg-vs-trump-clash-oligarchs Photographer Sueddeutsche Zeitung Photo Found by Rob Cook
  22. Here we go! Read the link. Black and white. The red arrow doesn't make it untrue. This is, or will be if the bank has jumped the gun, a direct consequence of the UK leaving the EU. https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/consumers/financial-products-and-services/payments-transfers-cheques/index_en.htm What do other agencies have to do with it? I'm beginning to suspect some people on this forum have an alert set up for the word "Brexit" so they can get the smokescreens ready.
  23. Sunday sale. Probably lower PU - $$ - I better like the one amounting to the double. The Castle Lake ferry M/F FREDERIKSBORG leaving the city square in Hillerød for the Frederiksborg Castle and the baroque garden.

  25. Thanks, good to know, I had forgotten that you could do it with Vuescan, I knew that Silverfast had the capability and in fact I see that they still make and sell the targets, quite a lot of information here: https://www.silverfast.com/show/it8-targets/en.html
  26. Famous Tokyo Skytree, world tallest tower. Image snapped just last week. Had 23hr layover in Haneda Intl. Airport & decided to go sightseeing. After 2 months in ultra polluted SE Asia, Tokyo was breath of fresh air! I could not believe -- streets clean like pharmacy. Everyone wearing masks too as corona fears have spread everywhere -- I was probably 1 out of 100 on average not wearing it. Image is vertical stitch of 4 frames. They told me on clear day you can see Mt. Fuji from the tower, but not on this day so I passed & went exploring some nearby pagodas. It is quite pricey too to get up -- ~30 USD! But it will definitely be on my list when I return to Japan for fabled cherry blossom season in April.
