alanfrombangor - I'm surprised by this one. A pub with a "big screen" can't be that old? It went down fast!

A former colleague reports:

Until it closed a few years ago, it was the oldest surviving pub in Menai Bridge. That part of Menai Bridge is a conservation area, it'll be interesting to see what happens to the building, which is now owned by a developer. A private house on Cambria Road, named Cambria dates back to the 17th C when it was the first public house and inn for ferry travellers in Porthaethwy.

(Porthaethwy is the Welsh name for the town. When the bridge was built in 1826 the town also became known in English as Menai Bridge). Around 25% of Britain's pubs have closed since 2000.

darosa - Very nice framing. Did you just happen to be in the right spot?


Thanks Karlen! No I was there to test AF tracking / Eye Focus with the new firmware for the a7iii (works great!). I wasn't expecting him though.

Comments on Day 10
darosa - I'm continuing to be intrigued with the ways you've found to use the 400mm, especially here where the tiny car and huge ship seem almost comparable in size


Thanks James and good to hear you're back in the real world!

It's an adventure for me too! I'm more of a wide angle-standard-short tele, manual focus, vintage lens photographer so I'm well out of my comfort zone. But the a7iii + FE100-400 works like a charm and I quite enjoy this challenge.

darosa - Gorgeous warm colours dominate this silhouetted scene.


Thanks Chris and Greg! We have a spell of great weather atm, good time for some after dinner shooting.
These turbines (6 of many) are along the channel that links Rotterdam to the North Sea.

Yes, at the end the car wash became really colorful

Comments day 18 (using MiPr's cool tool)
clk230 - I really like how the texture of the petal is captured. Not so enamored with your subject. :)
addy landzaat - Nice shot but doesn't particularly look Greek to me.
Snegren - - Nice use of te swirl to highlight the fleur de lis.
Phil Wood - Interesting pattern. What is that?
alanfrombangor - I like rust. I find this shot interesting even though I can't tell what it is.
pegelli - I prefer your "insect hotel" outtake because I like circles.
MiPr - A white spider and a dead (?) brown spider? For me the brown takes away from the shot a little.
C_N_RED_AGAIN - He does look a little beat up.
Dopol - I prefer your "more stairs" outtake. I'm a fan of architectural abstracts.
darosa - I don't typically shoot distance but your shots with that lens make me think about trying.
Fred_S - Very pretty bubbles. I like the grass in the foreground.
-Karlen

I had time tonight so here's a big, long comment post.
Day 19
addy landzaat - I like how the yellow pops with all the blue.
pegelli - Nice shot (my favorite of the series) but the color of the river is a tad disconcerting.
darosa - Ha, ha. Clever.
alanfrombangor - I'm surprised no one has taken that box. It's really cool.
MiPr - Another nice magnolia. I also like your tulip outtake.
C_N_RED_AGAIN - I like his pose. Too bad his beak gets lost a little.
Phil Wood - Interesting angle.
Robbie - Is it really a slide? If so, it's incredibly cool.
clk230 - The detail is incredible and the flower seems to sparkle.
Fred_S - The bokeh makes what could be a basic subject much more intersting.
Dopol - I prefer your outtake.

Day 20
pegelli - Nice that your subject so cooperatively centered itself on the flower.
darosa - Makes me want to peek through.
MiPr - Amazingly colorful. Great shot.
addy landzaat - Nice day.
alanfrombangor - Not quite as decayed as I've come to expect this challenge.
Robbie -Neat gate.
Phil Wood - Interesting silhouette. I wish the biker was a little further out so the feet and legs stood out more.
clk230 - I adore your outtake. The light filtering through is so pretty.
Fred_S - A lovely flower.
Dopol - I know the guidelines don't allow it but I'd like this shot even more if the adults were trimmed out.

Day 21
darosa -I'm enjoying how you're using this lens to capture character from a distance.
pegelli - I really like your outtake 1. It's lovely and has a lot of poignancy this week.
alanfrombangor - Definitely decaying. I'm more a fan of the industrial decay you've been featuring.
Phil Wood - Fun. I like how the outtake gives the context to go with it.
MiPr - Your selection is probably a prettier version of the caterpillar but I love the outtake.
Fred_S - The bokeh almost looks like paintbrush strokes on the rear tulip. Kind of neat.
Robbie - The barbed wire shadow makes this shot especially compelling.
Dopol - I like how you captured both edges of the window. It helps give structure to this unofficial-looking cafe.
clk230 - Oh my! You're right, I can do without that one.

Day 22
pegelli - A beautiful cathedral. Still like your day 21 #1 outtake the best.
MiPr - The innards of the flower look pretty too. I like how you positioned your shot so the blue background makes it pop.
addy landzaat - Now THAT looks Greek. ;)
alanfrombangor - I really like this one even though it isn't the industrial things I favor. Excellent framing.
Phil Wood - Has an idyllic feel to it.
darosa - I always like architectural shots. This shot makes me curious as to what it looks like further back.
Fred_S - Another nice flower shot. It almost looks like artificial light is shining on it. Is that the sun?

It's a walkway across a sluice - a grid from most angles, as much hole as metal.

Thanks for the comments - you are quite right about the silhouette, timing may not be everything in photography, but it certainly counts (against me in this instance).

The Day 22 shot may look idyllic but not for long, the field in view is soon to be filled with houses :(
