  1. Nikon D500, 300/4E PF, TC14EIII. Not a great shot, and birding isn’t my thing. I just happened across this a few weeks ago while hiking and decided to return and try and get a picture. so, it’s about 630mm field of view with a generous crop as well.

  3. ...and here's the first photo from the Pony Premo with its new bellows and Schneider-Kreuznach 5,6/180 lens, taken at a local farm just across the river from my place this morning of a rockpool (below what is sometimes a waterfall in very wet weather, but just a trickle this morning) on the Allenvale Rivulet, Derwent Valley, Southern Tasmania. Ilford Multigrade V glossy RC paper negative, processed in Ilford Multigrade paper developer, and digitised by stitching three segments taken with a Sigma sd Quattro H camera and Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro lens mounted on an MP4 copy stand.

  4. Update.... I finally got up the courage to build a new set of bellows for the Pony Premo. While the old bellows had been light-tight after some taping they kept developing new light leaks as their 110-year-old age made their fragile nature more and more evident. Along with having acquired two 5"x7" double-dark slides to enable the use of film, it became evident that using 125 ISO film negative material as opposed to the 3 ISO of the paper negatives I have been using would make using these bellows even more risky, so the decision was made. The job was not easy - the bellows not only

  5. Some shots I hadn't edited or published before and taken on our 2017 Sabi Sabi Safari. Early on in that safari we had come across an elephant carcass, which was providing a right feast for all the predators in the park, from hyenas to lions and vultures. Apparently this elephant had died in a fight with another male. The stench was over-powering, as you can tell from these images of another (non-FZ) group of people who were on the same sighting.

  7. Trigger-happy idiots really are the bane of wildlife. Eagles "stealing" lambs is mostly an old wives' tale, if they were to do so you could be reasonably sure that the lamb was either sick or injured in the first place, and even if it was healthy, one less lamb is a whole less injurious to the world than losing an eagle, or worse an active breeding pair's nest. Farmers around here are generally mindful of our local Tasmanian Wedge-Tail eagles, largely through advertising campaigns by conservation groups concerning their state of decline, which is mostly due these days to the rampan

  8. Reminded me of this Red Kite that chose the nest site in the oak wood alongside me .. Despite Schedule 1 Protected status meaning you commit a serious offence by even approaching the nest, I opened the driveway door a couple of days later to see a guy in camo / balaclava with a shotgun the other side of my hedge, with his accomplice (from the neighbouring farm) similarly equipped standing under this tree about to blast the nest, bird and all the eggs. Without thinking I charged out, yelling my head off .. cue serious fallout with neighbours, police issuing warnings of

  13. Had a couple of sessions with this lens again this weekend - unfortunately not too much stuff of interest macro wise, but it was good to get some practise with manual focus. This was one thing that I did manage for close-up, a lump of resin on the tree trunk. resin macro And a more general view to give an indication of what you are looking at in the picture above. resin macro 1 One thing I am liking about this lens whilst still searching for macro opportunities is getting back into infra red photography.

  14. Allan, great work with the restoration and usage of the Pony Premo. The word "Dunny" found its way into the Oxford Dictionary quite some time ago - around the late 1960s/early 1970s in fact. That it did so, was due to a friend of mine, Gerry Carrington who had travelled from NZ to Oxford to study for his D.Phil (in Physics). Gerry was a friend of one of the compilers of the dictionary who was tasked with revising and keeping the dictionary up to date. He asked Gerry if there were any antipodean words that should be in the said dictionary and Gerry replied "Dunny". Gerry rerurn

  15. #1. Dunny it is then, but in deference to the greater non-empire population's understanding of the Australian/English tongue, I thought I'd try a word with a wider understanding. The interior is luxurious by Roman Empire standards - two seats side-by side on a thuderbox 😉 , and even a floor-level seat in the corner for the toddlers in the family (my feet included for scale in the second photo). Communal pooping in style, as it were. 😄 "Flushing" was via a sophisticated "roll down the hill through a large opening in the back wall of the steeply-sloped under-floor area via gravit

It was badly damaged by the 2015 earthquake, but it still has the finest collection of temples in Nepal.

  22. The first is called Kailash and was one of the guides on my trip through the Mustang region in 2017. The other is called Nil and took care of the horses. He was 62 at the time and used to run up the hills chasing horses. Impressive his friendliness and vitality.

  31. I was given this 5" x 7" format Premo Pony No.7 camera (a.k.a. Kodak Pony), literally a pile of junk which looked like it had spent much of its life under a pile of garbage somewhere, sans lens and with broken ground glass, and which thus immediately became a no-cost challenge for me... Stage one complete, and if successful in restoration it will give me a large format camera for which freshly made film is available (provided I can find darkslides to suit and a lens/shutter combination that will fit the small front standard). If it proves impractical for use, as I sa

  33. Indeed. Pieces of flowers from a tree called “jambeiro”. It is a beautiful scene to see, the pink ground around those trees. The Botanical Garden is a safe place, unlike the rest of the city. You have to pay to get into and there is guards everywhere. it’s sad that this beautiful has such a bad, but true reputation. Thank you and Dallas for the comments.

  37. Today I was treated to a very calm, overcast morning, so I took the Pony Premo up to the old farmstead outhouse (c.1842 build), having further modified the camera by removing and re-attaching the bellows differently after pressing it in my Ademco 2125 press for 24hours, along with removing what I considered to be redundant rails which appeared to have no purpose other than making the front standard easier to fold into the camera - but at the expense of a few mm of depth, and took the following photo using Ilford MGIV paper for the negative of this curious old commode which long ago had a bush

  46. I finally bit the bullet and sought out a well-kept G9 and the kit lens. I am not at all sure I need a big camera like this but that's why I waited for a good deal to arrive--I won't be making a huge loss should I sell it six months later.

  47. With purchased software it doesn't stop working when Version Aleph+1 comes out. I find that when software updates, I have to relearn the whole package. They have re-arranged the menu, things that used to work have broken. My old workarounds for things that were broken are now broken. Upgrade an Adobe product. Lose two months of productivity.

  49. Portrait of a demonstrator at the Black Country Outdoor Museum. Despite appearances in this posed shot, he was a friendly and helpful person. The main activity in this forge was making chains. In the olden days this forge would have been primarily used by a female chain maker, and situated in her back yard. The men did heavier work, but chain making was certainly very hard work.

  50. The Internet is marvellous (sometimes) - my online musings on the difficulty of finding a 5"x7" double darkslide to fit the camera was answered within a few hours by an exchange offer of a practically unused c.1970's Lisco Regal DD in exchange for me rebuilding a Thornton Pickard shutter. So I picked both up yesterday from a local address - and somehow I also picked up a similarly unused Praktica Nova 1b and a Minolta X300 35mm camera for use if/when I get people back into the darkroom to resume B&W film tuition into the bargain as well). Today I drove up the road today on a warm, cloudles
