June 2019 Favourite Uploads

Recommended Posts

We're recently back from a dive trip to Bali, where I spent many many hours exploring a lot of "barren" sandy areas. Wow....so many good things to photograph, but oh so difficult. We were located right in front of Mt Agung, which has been erupting on and off for nearly 2 years. And as we travelled right at the end of the wet season, the volcanic ash had washed into the ocean and formed a thick "talc like" coating on top of the sand. The slightest fin kick wrong stirred it right up, and the goatfish, rays etc that feed in the area really made photography very difficult.

I've just processed and loaded the first 20 images. Here's 2 favourites. Although I did feel very sorry for the poor fish held in the lizardfish's mouth...it was struggling to get away.....but was soon to be dinner.

There may be an interesting story behind this. I was tempted to caption it, “Meet me at the corner of Michigan and Chestnut and bring the sh*t.”

Andy, these days if they don't have a lift I stay on at ground level. Here's one of the many very good buskers I've heard here in Galway:

From a series I took at Louisville at night at ISO 2500. Love being able to shoot so cleanly at this ISO.
Similar ones have already sold, so that's nice too:

I lose what I write if I upload more than two pix at once - hopefully third try is the charm:

Seeing these brings back good memories too. It's a fun city. 

Ironically, I'd uploaded these with some daytime shots taken at ISO 100, and one of those got me my first fail in quite a few years. These sailed through on their own (on my second try without the ISO 100 pix) with no problem.

Shot this very recently on a trip to Massachusetts (Sony RX10 iv).  Not confident it will sell since there are over 20,000 photos of the American flag waving....we shall see.

They're AUD, so only 3.5 of your dollars, but even so, a bit pricey.

IBIS made this possible. I haven't found a downside to this technology yet. The saw mill at the St Fagans Museum. My go-to when nothing else presents itself at the weekend.

But your flag waves nicer and prouder  than 19,000 of the 20,000

Hi Betty,

 

Sorry for the delay in replying, I was on holidays, real one!

That was nice, real nice...

 

Ok, so yes it is $5 for the dip, but first it is big, nearly as big as the plate of fries, and second it is Australian dollar, so it would be around $3.5 for you.

And last, well, yes, every thing is expensive in Darwin, which is one of the main raison why our population is falling. People are leaving to go where it is cheaper.

We are a bit far from everything here, so everything is expensive...

 

Have good ay.

😀
