Traveling up the NC Outer Banks on my way home last month, just south of Nags Head, had to stop for this:


Never known as speedy in his wizardly duels, Woody is again a second too late and pays the price.

Greetings from the UK, it's Brexit -7 days (+/- nobody knows and probably no longer cares).

They are super photos 4wd, the sort you'd see on postcards (not that I have received a postcard in years!)

Thanks, they're just shots with the phone and then Google Photos applies filters, panorama, animation, etc.

A bit more of Victoria's High Country ... back in November whilst out 4wding I managed to perform some "unscheduled" mechanical alteration to the vehicle:

IMG_20191129_103144714.jpgShare your photos! Travel shots, photoblogs, etc.

Resulting in a slow journey back to the nearest civilisation, (5 hours to do 28kms).

But now it's December so out we went again ...

First night spent at the luxurious Moscow Villaw, (luxurious compared to how we usually camp):

The next day we pass a little bit of the USA, the Washington Winchw:

A relaxing second night next to the Snowy Riverw, the smoke is from the bushfires in New South Wales:

Historic School House, (~1860), at Suggan Bugganw...

Just one of those things that happen, one of the front wheels lift off, all the drive goes to it due to the differential, when it hits the ground again it stops spinning and a couple of teeth shear off the crown gear.

Damage continues because it's constant 4wd so the rest of the teeth deteriorate the longer you drive on it, we did have to use the winch a couple of times on the way out. ;D

Made a pretty good *bang* when it happened ... could avoid it by installing a diff-locker in the front diff, (the rear is an LSD).

I recently had a photo book made by CEWE-Photoworld, with photos of my local area.  There's next to no text, bar acknowledgements, as I wanted something more like the look of mounted prints in a gallery.  Here are four screenshots from the CEWE software's WYSIWYG view.

Thank you :-[ I released the book to the CEWE Photoworld Community.  It didn't win their 'book of the month' prize, but got an honourable mention: better than a slap in the face with a wet fish, anyway.  They don't seem to require you to be a logged-in member, so you may be able to see it complete here.

I put too many photos in... some are better than others No sooner than I saw them in print, I noticed things in some photos that I hadn't seen on screen, and not improvements.  Conversely, at least one photo looks better on screen than in print.

I can see the whole book:
the photos you combine in the double spreads work really well together. (That's a real talent in itself.)

Was listening to a photographer a while back talking about selecting prints -- for sale or maybe for a calendar. They would print them and hang them on the wall for a week and see how they felt about them after that time.
Re the number of photos -- it's a lot of photos! I think any photographer would struggle to get that many together. If I may be critical I like the black and white photos but not sure they fit in with the rest of the images.

I got candidate images printed out as the smallest, cheapest prints that PhotoBox offered, layed them out on the floor, and played endless games of Snap to find matching pairs (as far as possible, some don't).  It's more natural than you might expect.  In the explanatory section under the book I wrote "This plays into the "inscape" idea of my photography mentor, Philip Evans of North Wales, that people have sets of lines, blocks and points in their minds, and when out in the world, only press the button when what's in front of them happens to match one of their innate patterns."  In other words, people are apt to repeat compositions in terms at least of shapes, even when the subjects and scales are different.  In a somewhat similar idea, Karen, the lady who ran the classes when most were made, "likes the idea of photos "talking to each other," i.e., the whole being more than the sum of the parts."

Was listening to a photographer a while back talking about selecting prints -- for sale or maybe for a calendar. They would print them and hang them on the wall for a week and see how they felt about them after that time.
That's a good idea; similarly, I find it best to leave something I've written for a week or so before I can hope to proofread it properly.  I wouldn't have printed all those out full size, though, too expensive! 

Re the number of photos -- it's a lot of photos! I think any photographer would struggle to get that many together.
I've got more now  :)  in case there's a revised edition, or, heaven help me, a second volume   :o  ( definitely not imminent!)  Five of the photos were made earlier, but the great majority were gathered over almost a whole year.

If I may be critical I like the black and white photos but not sure they fit in with the rest of the images.
I think so too.  I also wrote in the blurb "I am not an instinctive monochrome photographer, and think that sits a little uneasily amid the rest."  I put the mono ones in because Karen likes black & white (her degree had an element of art photography) and was very determined that we should all have a go.

Thanks for your kind comments  :)
