    Scanning some of my old 35mm Kodacolor negatives I came across this one. As I recall, it was taken somewhere near Clear Lake, CA. in the dog days of summer, 1989.

    Nice! I've seen that one in pics, it's massive! I almost bought one at auction many years ago, probably should have, I think it was $400.

    The 500mm is good when stopped down a couple stops but really my weak-point for astrophotography is a solid tripod / mount.

    I look forward to seeing some shots from the 600!

    My daughter is taking a liking to photography. She's doing well with the D50 here, but is eyeing my D600 or something DSLR that can do wifi and low light. She likes the thin DOF you don't get with the phone cameras. Photos don't exist to kids unless they can go on Instagram and/or Google Photos. High school at the end of the summer. My hikes are like death marches to the kids unless this daughter has a camera along, and the other daughter has some friends along to make it a social occasion. A family hike might also be followed by an ice cream or other treat to make the whole outing something nice for everyone.

    This is not a Large Format image so I am posting it in this thread, but it connects to a discussion about emotions in Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    There are well-known emotions like love, fear, joy, despair - and there are sensations - which are harder to convey in words. They can be subtle and subjective.

    Sometimes we sense something in the subject (or our interpretation) and wonder if it will appear in the final print and whether others will appreciate it.

    Here's one of those: I dunno if I even like it. I just sensed something, you might say, and decided to experiment and see how things... developed

    Interesting. As I often discuss with my clients, we can never really know what someone else is feeling when they describe their emotions (feelings) or their sensations. All we can do is relate by thinking about how we ourselves feel when we feel those same emotions and sensations, and hope that we are close (somewhere in the ballpark) to understanding how that other person is feeling. That is one of the beauties of an expressive language like photography. One can have an emotion, feeling, or sensation, and transmit it not only by language but also another way - by an image - hoping that extra visual communication contributes to understanding.

    When I first looked at this image the first thing I thought was why is the mail slot so low on the door? Then I started thinking about what was behind that door. Then I thought - is there a 33, and is there a 35? And then I thought, how is that little shaft of light getting in there?

    Maybe not what you wanted to communicate, but that is another beauty of photography. One puts the images out there and people are free to read them anyway they want, and if they do actually read them there is communication.

    The worst thing is apathy. You put them out there and nothing happens.

    Nice image! Nice tones. Nice seeing.

    "why is the mail slot so low on the door?"

    So the mail delivery person wouldn't have to walk all the way up the steps to deliver the mail.

    Beginnings....

    Photography is much about light, shape, patterns and the great human gift of interpreting patterns into emotions and more.

    Right now watching PBS 'Civilizations The Second moment of Civilization. Examine the formative role of the creative imagination in the forming of humanity itself.'

    'A cognitive revolution, from 30K years ago or more', their words. I suspect for 100K years we sat around a similar campfire, but now ours is a screen of light.

    and a pic I just took with a cell phone and binoculars
