This weekly thread is principally intended for you to showcase your photos made with Canon cameras of all sorts: SLR, DSLR, Mirrorless, M-series, APS-C, film, etc. But any brand of camera will be accepted, including photos taken with your phone. We do enjoy reading an accompanying text explaining your photo and any special techniques you may have used. Comments and helpful criticisms on others' photos are also welcome: we can all learn something from each other. We look forward to seeing your contributions and new participants to this series of threads are always welcome!
A new thread for the following week will be posted next Saturday around 10 pm UK time.
Digirame and I will be active here and are sharing the hosting, but we are used to all joining in and commenting on others' photos.
This past week we had several photos from OpenCube, which always set me wondering how they started off and what they are intended to represent! (I guess I need to know the background that he refers to.) But please keep them coming -- one day the penny will drop!
Digirame took a trip to Portland, Oregon, and walked along the Willamette River, which winds its way up from south east of Eugene, eventually entering Canada. (I am finding it hard to think of another US river that runs from south to north.) Nice blue skies and curiously deserted streets.
His interpretation of Halloween/Thanksgiving reminds me that one advantage of Thanksgiving is that "commercial" Christmas does not start until it is over. Here, in central Europe, where Thanksgiving is not celebrated, "commercial" Christmas is already in full swing, with the lighting of trees and lights in the cities. I will show some of these later in the week.
Simplejoy has been active in making really good suggestions for the landing pages (thanks!), but found time to visit us with his bubble wrap photo.
Steve's cat looked happy to be photographed (at ISO 1600!) That's a different cat out mousing. Steve's trees are interesting, but I'd like to know what the color polarizer does. He moved on to his ND filter photos: different! I like the way he is going back to basic principles.
I look forward to seeing your photos of how the holiday season is prepared for in your part of the world.
