  1. Today
  2. Hugh, I took a driving test in 1972 and failed, since then I have not really needed to own some rust bucket that sits outside my house! I live in an area with a plethora of public transport, trains, underground buses and a short bus ride away is Heathrow Airport, when I toiled for a living I rode a bike. No it is a black mini, which seems to be a popular colour around here! Cropped to nearly square to match the other 24. I like to show them as is, but if the red bit annoys the clone or crop tool may make an appearance. PS Duly newly cropped
  3. Mike, you are just going to have to get your drivers licence and then buy yourself a Mini. You really do know that you want to and so do I ! (LOL) An interesting almost mono effect with your image - just the blue of the number plate and the corner of the red car in the top right corner peeking out (I would be tempted to clone it out). Was the rainy day that grey or were you trying for the non-colour look?
  4. A quick dash out between rain showers to grab a new Mini front end with my new acquisition. Cropped a tad of course! 1/100 f5.6 ISO 200
  5. When in the past and had to use film, the B/W would have been an Ilford product, colour was Agfa some thing or other in negative or reversal, thank god those days are long gone. Also I wasn’t able to do any processing myself, ooooooh that would have been bloody awful
  6. Yesterday
  7. I don't know who dressed it, Mike, or for that matter who even put it there - it wasn't there last time I passed that way. Given the professional-standard installation of the pole, I'd say it was a sign that has been removed (probably without permission) and re-purposed. (Sorry, but T-Max only comes in B&W... )
  8. Indeed, Mike.
  9. Is it hiding in an oak tree?
  10. Yuk B/W, but once I get past that very intriguing. Who puts clothes on a statue?

  13. Robert, sadly you are right. Your image is one that is not at all uncommon here in Melbourne's CBD and other large Australian cities.
  14. Hugh, Thanks for commenting. The problems of homelessness are many and complicated, and unfortunately the politicians and social agencies don't have solutions either. Robert
  15. Last week
  16. Gips, Kilo & Saltis;P
  17. Ageless camera kit catches an age old problem. Your image certainly conveys your feelings about the plight of these four and these feelings are ones that we all have. That said I am afraid that I don't have any answers as to how to help folks such as this women or her dogs.
  18. Thanks Viv, a two year journey back to a reasonably healthy state. The 50-140 and the 18-135 will go in PX for something else, at the moment I’m enjoying the primes when I can get out but I hate the cold weather and rain, roll on the spring/summer!
  19. Taken last year on Yonge Street in downtown Toronto during a street festival. While walking with a photo bud looking for interesting subjects, we happened to pass a sleeping street person and her pack of dogs camped on the sidewalk. Even while sleeping she used a sign to panhandle for money. And despite always being sympathetic to the plight of our city's homeless population, truly, I felt worse for the dogs. Converted to black and white in Photoshop. Nikon S3 rangefinder Cosina Voigtlander 21 f4 in Nikon S mount manual focus Fuji 100 ISO colour slide 5.6 @ 1/125th
  20. Indeed - SI plates mean restricted use, a log book must be kept that concurs with the mileage on the speedometer.
  21. I guess if rego works similar to Victoria, there is some financial incentive to move onto those plates once you vehicle is old enough, especially for a vehicle that looks like it might only come into town a few days per year.
  22. Hilversum - the centre of Dutch radio. i guess this is that is the focus of this place. Looks interesting and great shots. Did you need much work to even out the lighting?
  23. I was just picturing people lining up with their dogs in an orderly fashion to avoid "driveway congestion". The high pressure hose on a maltese terrier would be interesting, but not half so much as the high suction vacuum cleaner....
  24. Now, now, Mike, I use the X-T2 almost on a daily basis for work. Just because I'm playing the field at the moment doesn't mean I've abandoned her - far from it!
  25. Mike, I am so glad to hear the good news about your health. That is a very comprehensive Fuji system! As you know, I still use the XT-1. I may be tempted by the XT-3, if such materialises. Egged on by my photographer daughter I am currently taking a hard look at the Leica CL, but that is anudder story.
  26. Cracking image Alan, how much dust was there covering the X-T2?
  27. "Car & Dog Wash" - that is interesting! Do they do them simultaneously with a high pressure cleaner?
