2020 Week 17 – Different Views

It was a handheld shot, my X-E3 camera with a wideangle lens (XF16 ƒ 2.8) under the giant poppy – with the exposure and focus automatic I was relying on the camera to make it work and it did! I really like this shot, perhaps because when viewing it afterwards in Capture One Pro on my iMac I could see the tiny insects on the petals of the poppy.

And different views was the motive for my making a “tiny planet” of the panorama of my village of Gamlingay. I had to take advice from the Internet and it took a couple of attempts before I had eliminated the “join”, but my Mavic Air’s product looked suddenly almost perfect.

Different views became old views: quick iPhone scans of old photographs of rugby played in Calcutta in the 1970s, at the Calcutta Football and Cricket Club which is still going, I believe.

The outdoor hairdressing under lockdown conditions was a snatched shot, and the subject looked cheerful about it. The final shot, of allium bulgaricum is delicately coloured and lit – very pleasing.
