This one is from my winter project (scanning film from the 80's and 90's)

Writing on Stone Rodeo, Alberta Canada circa 1980.

Like Rico above, scanning (well, someone else is for me) old stuff, from the 90s into the 00s.

 

Always wanted to have a photograph that was high contrast showing a jazz musician, and managed to find one in my archive !

During the gloomy winter months, I often go back through my old files in search of any "hidden gems" that I might have overlooked. Last week, I came across this shot of a deserted beach on Big Corn Island in Nicaragua that for some reason I had never processed. Kinda wish I was there now...

When I had foolish aspirations that my personal site may somehow make some money, I had some images I kept exclusive to my site, including this one, which have always been quite fond of.

 

Still making my way through those images, and down to the last 250.

 

Now using a much cheaper solution for my site, which has the benefit of having it's own online market place. Not that sold anything there - or much of anything anywhere currently :D

 

I'm probably going to have to change all my exclusive RM content here to non-exclusive RF so that I can list some here as well as my own site.

As I understand, somebody correct me if I'm wrong, you can have Alamy exclusive images as long as they are not placed with another Agency. Selling from your own website is permitted as it is not another Agency.

It's kind of an agency that I use as my site now. All images are available on their market place, but you still get the option to have your own store with your own prices, hosted on your own domain.

 

Hence, any images I put there cannot be marked exclusive here.

Nice scan Rick,

I'm jealous,  I can't get a nice flat scan like yours from my CanoScan FS 4000.

Like your images.

 

Check out http://chucknacke.com/cowboy2.html really old site but Adam's MF scans were and are great.

Thanks Chuck😀!

Right now I'm using a CanoScan 9000F MkII for my new scans but for this image I used a professional scanning firm. It cost me about $80 for it. As I consider it my "masterpiece" and it hangs on my office wall, I think it was well worth it. Plus it was shot with a Hasselblad, so that made a difference too.

Rick

(edit) I just checked out your photo😊. Coincidentally, I named my photograph "The Last Rodeo"  Great minds think alike. right?

I enjoy repurposing things like these two glass pillar candle holders, filled with other Christmas decor.

Rick,

 

Thanks, but the cowboys are not "my photos"  That was back in the day that I featured a photographer every month.  That was so long ago that 760 X was

the web format  Adam did shoot all those cowboy photos with  MF's

 

Best,

 

Chuck

Yes, I don't think it was nesting- looked at me as I got a bit nearer then did that. Unbeatable pic, if not very ornithological.

I do have an ordinary one, though.

2AMX962.jpg

We stopped for a coffee near Cape Palliser (see above) and by the time we'd been served, two dozen of these chaps had arrived, all facing into the wind, like avian weather-vanes. They though we had chips (fries to you). Apparently they're very partial to chips.

When I first saw it, it looked like it was possibly sitting on eggs, too. Then I thought it was too early to have nests. Then I realized I have no clue when birds nest in that part of the world.

I love chips (fries) too, so I’m in tune with the birds. I like tater tots, too. And mashed potatoes (covered in gravy) and baked potatoes. I support Ireland! 😊

Right- not too early- too late! 20th December- virtually midsummer's day in New Zealand.

You have to adjust more than your watch down there.

I had to look those up. Mmm.

Two beautiful creatures most people would probably try to avoid when hiking in Central or South America…

 

Polistes carnifex, a very large vespid wasp sometimes referred to as the executioner wasp for its extremely painful sting
polistes-carnifex-and-nest-in-mexico-ves

 

Bothrops asper (juvenile) known as fer-de-lance, Nauyaca Real pit viper, Terciopelo or Barba Amarilla (depending on the country), a highly venomous pit viper species considered one of the most dangerous snakes because of its proximity to human habitations and its defensive temperament

bothrops-asper-juvenile-known-as-fer-de-

 

One would not want to disturb any of these two…

Napier was destroyed in an earthquake in 1931.

So, when they rebuilt, they did this......everywhere.

You're bringing back memories of my visit in 2014/15... visited a lot of the same places.

If I was 30 years younger I'd emigrate there, but they won't have me now as I'm too old/not rich enough!
