A contribution for Paula’s Thursday Special: Life-Size. At first I did not know what this was all about. But then our pets got out of hand – that cat: You don’t pay attention for a moment and the next thing you know, she’s in the milk! Just sharing some photos of the weird menagerie. Life-size, of course.
– Wolves run in a pack. Fish swim in a school. Now what would you call a ‘school’ of crows?
– A rookery.
– Meaning, a rook is a crow.
– That’s right.
– A rookery then. And a school of frogs would be a froggery?
– In your world, yes.
This is my entry for this week’s photo challenge: Vivid.
The Weekly Photo Challenge features Forces of Nature.
Since this is roughly from the area shown in the previous post, and since Paula asked for lines in her Black and White Challenge, I would like to share these impressions: Yes, I still do black and white!
While I’d had in mind to post these pictures in my own ‘elements‘ gallery – demonstrating that I am more at home with wood than with glass – I realized that today’s pictures also show what we saw on our walk in the nearby Stadtwald (“city forest”). So I decided to share these in the context of Jo’s Monday Walks. And so everybody can see where we were, I included the bottom picture.
[Although I am not into tech talk, I would have been grateful for this kind of information when I was trying to make up my mind about using Sony’s Alpha 6000 camera with Nikon AIS lenses – so here we go: The first picture was made with aforementioned camera and a Nikkor 85/2 AIS, the rest of them with my favourite lens, the Nikkor 28/2.8 AIS. They seem to quite work well with the camera. Though focusing manually can be a hassle with the small EVF, it is also fun.]
