Another shot taken on a table top during self-isolation. I used my wristwatch again and was thinking product-shoot. As you may have noticed the secondhand is in motion. I’m glad my friend let me borrow his Macro lens before Covid -19 raised it’s ugly head.
Stay safe and well my friends.

Trying to be creative in these days of self-isolation. I used my Lego 50th anniversary Lunar module as subject matter for some table-top work.

I thought this might be a bit of fun to try. I work mate lent me an old sigma 105 mm macro lens which can be manually focused on my new Nikon Z6. The shot is the back of my wristwatch. 275 parts of Swiss precision meets Japanese technology.

Let’s get this out of the way to start with. I have said that I am not a landscape photographer. But just occasionally I take one that makes contact with my “photographic eye.” You know the one. It’s the one you downloaded to your computer and have overlooked until you were looking for something else, and you see this one shot that was right under your nose. This shot for me was one of those.

Meet my son. Unlike me he is a professional cameraman. I took this last Thursday evening at an event we attended together. I took along my new camera I liked this straight shot of him so much I decided to share it with you.

One of the cranes on the dockside at Pyramiden. It looks like it lifted its last load some time ago.

These were some of the living quarters at Pyramiden. There are plans to turn at least one of the blocks into a tourist hotel.

Swimming Pool and Pyramiden

Well last time I showed you the inside of the pool. Here’s a shot from the outside. A more desolate spot for a swimming pool you would have to search a long time for. The mountain in the background gives (no surprise here) the name to the township. Pyramiden.
