Noooo...it's not what you think...:biggrin:

We all have reasons as to why we chose photography as a hobby, and we all have different types of images we like to shoot. Chris101 loves film and the types of things you need 3D glasses for. Bob Coutant loves nature. All you have to do is take one look at West’s images to see how much his loves he home city of Vancouver. Me? I must admit that I love travel photography and taking photos of flowers.

So…this week, I’m not going to restrict anyone by suggesting a theme. No…I take that back. I do have a theme for you, and it is:

INDEPENDENCE DAY!

What I want everyone to do is simple: GET OUT AND SHOOT. No excuses and no restrictions (independence - get it? :biggrin:). You are free to photograph what you like – think of it as open season, if you will.

The idea of this CS is to go out and practice your craft. Fall back in love with your gear. Try something new. Channel your inner Ansel Adams. Do whatever it takes to create the type of image you're proud to show off!

The usual rules apply, and we start now!! Remember:

JUST DO IT!!

Now.


Off you go! :tongue:

Lyndee,
Once again it is necessary for me to ask permission to post archival photos because as a slide film shooter it isn't possible for me to shoot and have my slides processed in time to post during the week of the Collective Shoot.

But mine have to travel all the way from Spain. :biggrin:
Nothing wrong with the focus on the P + S camera, it was the guy holding it causing the problem.
will post some new at the weekend. :)

You get a pass from me; I await your slides! :tongue:

Ahh, Lyndee, you've done it again -- the beautiful rose (a self portrait?:smile:) and a landscape scene that just draws me into it:wink: (I may not ever come back out)

Thirsty, wasn't she? :eek:

Can't wait to see what you come up with, John!

That`s from a Fiesta bullcart parade a few years ago, they follow the carts with cans of wine, if you are feeling lucky you just open your mouth and hope for the best. :biggrin:
There is an open air Blues festival in Mijas this weekend, so hopefully should get some good candids.

Lyndee, my girl! Wild and Independent! You got it:
All three were done with the 24PC-E on a tripod.

The first one is (part of) a vertical pano. And just as in reality: if you take the time to look at the original here, you can see that there are unexpected details to be seen!

Thank you, Bob! :smile:

The landscape scene was taken in Horseshoe Bay, British Columbia, right outside of Vancouver. Marvelous scenery there; one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. In a small park at the bay they have adirondack chairs where you can just sit and take in the view. And...that's exactly what I did - didn't move for hours... :redface:

Ohhh...the blues festival should be great! You'll be able to capture some wonderful images, I'm sure. Love the three wise men, John. They definitely look as though they are in deep consultation! :biggrin:

I see why this is a favorite. This is excellent work, Tri. I've always been a fan of your portraiture, and this image is fantastic. The lighting on the model and the BW processing makes this a winner. Well done!

And wonderful details there are, Rob - I love these. They're so nice and colorful and such blooms! That 24PC-E is really working for you, and with your skills, your photos just sing. Two thumbs up!

Super theme Lyndee! I'm hoping to get some shots today. Both of yours are wonderful. I really like the first one (and I'm not into flowers :smile:)

Fun shot John. Chugging wine from a plastic container...seems more like something college kids would do here. You guys sure know how to party! :biggrin:

Nice. Lots of character. I bet they have some great stories.

Nice floral shots Rob. It took a while for the orig to load. Birds in the trees? Hard to tell.
