I had been wondering how Soren was. Thanks for the beautiful photo. Hugs.
Søren is as foul beaked and sassy as ever. Thanks, Teagan.
These black-and-whites are very impressive, particularly the last two.
Thanks, Liz. A long long time ago, I worked solely in B&W. Those were the film days and I used large format cameras. I still have a 4X5 view camera. Spunk has used it for his Spunktograhy: https://photos.tandlphotos.com/blog/2015/12/spunk-does-4×5-t-11-days
You’re welcome, Tim. I just checked out the Spunktography post. What fun!
There’s a whole series of Spunk doing photography on TandL photos. He had to model for a long time to pay off his debts for all the high-value things he destroyed while he was growing up. He’s still destructive, but not nearly as bad as he used to be.
He’s quite a character!
It is good to see Søren! You still have Beaker, too?
I like Silver’s positraction paws. 🙂
Søren cooperates for photos now and then. Beaker is as ornery as ever. He doesn’t like having his photos taken. Thanks, Lavinia.
Nice monochromatic photos Tim.
How truly beautiful. Sweet parrot and wee paws.
Monotonal or black and white images give us so much….Thank you:)
You are welcome, Janet. I love B&W as I mentioned to Liz, I worked solely in B&W many years ago.
Gray Matter that truly matters! 😉 Søren and Silver paws: precious! 👌
Thanks, Marina. Matter matters.
This matter does! 👌
You are a genius
You gray matter
It is so impressive in these days of smart phones, that:
📷F one point five, one sixtieth📷
Is still your focus
A passionate and true love of the eye at work.
Haha! Thanks, abvr. Genius is debatable. Curiously, ƒ/1.5, 1/60 sec at ISO 40 was the exposure my phone chose for all three photos. Normally, I don’t pay much attention to the exposure settings made by the phone, but I did notice the sameness in these photos. I pay much more attention to exposure settings with my DSLR cameras.
My reply landed somewhere at the bottom
Excellent moody gray matter photos of Soren and Silver’s paws. And impressive to incorporate photo specs into haiku
As I mention to abvr, I don’t always pay much attention to the exposure settings the phone chooses, but since it set the exposure for all three photos at ƒ/1.5, 1/60 sec at ISO 40 I thought it was worth working into a specku. Thanks, JYP.
Wonderful shots. Love that you have framed your photos, too.
Beautiful closeups of Søren and Silver.
So love black and white 🙂
Gotta frame well hung photos. B&W is beautiful. Thanks, Dale.
Lovely post Tomothy. Now I’m off to red all the oesn I missed.
Oh wow so you actually used the smartphone to take these pics?
They are exquisite. The otherwise stern and strict Søren looks so sweet and gentle, full of love and very handsome.
Lucky you with your DSLR!!
I used my phone for all three pics. Most of the pics I post these days are done with my iPhone. When Apple added LiDAR to the iPhone 13 Pro, I bought the phone instead of a lens for what was my carry camera. The iPhone replaced one DSLR and one mirrorless camera. The LiDAR always me to do low light photos more easily and works great for the wide-angle night shots of sky with stars and planets. I use a DSLR and telephoto lens for most of the bird photos, the close-up moonshot and closeup photos of planets.
Yes I read, the iPhone has a real great camera installed. When my boat comes in I want to get me a super phone too. Still I’m two’minded I would prefer a new tablet phone. I’m sure my indecision will subside once the boat has anchored. In the meantime the old Android must suffice.
Ooo the Lidar sounds very special too.
I’m really envious of your range.
Your shots speak for themselves.
LiDAR is a type of radar that is low light sensitive. It is used in cars for sensing traffic around a car and warning drivers when other vehicles are too close, or the drivers are wandering out of the lane, etc. Apple saw a use for it in the iPhones and iPads.
The iPad pro has a similar camera to the iPhone 13 and 14 so you can do a tablet camera when your boat comes in.
Oh yes I see what you mean, Ive driven in a few cars now with this sensor. I think these sensor are installed in most new cars these days.
Thing thing is this that I would need both, the tablet and the phone.
I find the phone far more comfortable to carry around when I’m out on my walks or traveling. I’d love the tablet for other creative work. We shall see when the ship comes in.
The devices devour us.
I love black and white photography!
Loved seeing Soren!
And those silver paws… too cute!
My phone doesn’t have a camera, Tim. Then again, I bought it in… erm… many years ago. Sister Janes tells me it was in 1972 – how does she rememebr things ;like that. Hahaha! Spunk is her favourite too.
Spcial shots this time, loved them!
You were way ahead of the curve in 1972. Thanks, Inchie.
Love the bird! Great lighting and composition – did you have to pay it to pose for ya’
It was a feebee. Thanks, Brian.
oh love Soren.. clever and great lighting .. love Tim! ❣️
Gray is definitely not dull. These are fabulous pics Tim.
I’m a huge fan of B&W!
Søren is gorgeous.
Silver’s paws are pawsitively purrfect!
Hahahaha! Silver is another character. Søren’s an ornery bird.
Wonderful black and white Tim!
