'Fresh off this morning's press', and with your brand new camera, David?! Congratulations, and hope it's "a beginning of a beautiful friendship".
If the first pics are any indication, it's an excellent tool, capable of doing a lot more (and better) then your CPS (with which, of course you managed to do just fine!)
I like very much those first pages in this new chapter!
The guys are probably talking about the Leica lens on your awesome camera? :)
Best wishes, and good luck. - B.
Thank you David - glad you're enjoying the summer nights by the sea, when this deep blue is actually a 'warm' colour :)
Sending you some sound greetings of ocean waves, crickets and cicadas - B
Right, Tom, and this 'funny idea' goes way back!
"Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. For God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness..."
Yes, Tom - the beginning and the end of it :)
Me too, Antje - this color (paint) actually is called 'summer resort', and it's best in soft morning, or evening light... The contrasting violet hues help to offset and emphasize it a bit :)
I get about a lot, Boris! ;)
Thank you very much for your felicitous comment and praise, Boris!
I really like the beaches of the Walcheren peninsula. Sometimes the light is much more beautiful with some dark clouds on the horizon! :))
Beautifully preserved 'Old Charm' street, that almost looks like a movie set... Windows are huge, and set very low off the ground - I like that - wonder if it's for some particular (historical or other) reason?
You've found a very good angle, lighting and composition to do justice to this special spot, Ed!
Best wishes - B.
charming yellow flowers - L I K E - greetings from ROME - Gianni
Advanced society is sensitive to health.
When hygiene supervision is not thoroughgoing, business is stopped even if it does not affect people's body in particular.
When it becomes so, workers lose a job.
Thank You - I hear and understand your sentiment, Ed - whoever was born / grew up by the the sea, will always carry it inside ...
Glad those waves brought some special memories from depth and distance - to the shore...
Greets - B.
