Very good set of images Ine. The poppies are exceptional!

That sounds very familiar Paul: a 'Vredeling huwelijk'!; me too (if one can still use that phrase)

friday afternoon sounds perfect! and the location too!
(we know that, you are OneofUs! :-)).
what was your wedding date? -maybe we can celebrate it too? ;-) -

TY! elegant, aren't they? on poppy hunt every year, even ask people to look out for them, but have rarely seen them during recent years. other than a couple in between the railroad tracks or at impossible places. banks of the canal mowed too often. :-( but last year a school and gym in the neighbourhood were demolished and this year I found wonderland! :-D
still envied you and Leo for your perfectly lined up poppies, gorgeous compos! messy bunch here, although beautifully lit, but finally found some decent ones in the shade, elegantly sweeping around in the <beep> wind.
very shallow DOF because of the surroundings. :-S bit too shallow for the flowers? (the red blotches). calls for a macro lens? still dreaming (on) about corn fields with poppies, centaurea, chamomilla ...long gone?

Lovely poppies with an ultra soft Helios Ine!

As we are still living in Helios time, 2 more from Kijkduin:

1 Mural on the roof


2 Some thoughts I wish to offer for your consideration while you are waiting for your cash withdrawal


The text on the wall under the ATM reads:

“The most important
kind of freedom is to
be what you really
are. You trade in
your reality for a
role. You trade in
your sense for an act.

You give up your
ability to feel, and
in exchange, put on a
mask. There can’t be
any large scale
revolution until
there’s a personal
revolution,

on an individual level.
It’s got to happen
inside first.”


The Secret Society of Super Villain Artists
*Recycle Warrior*


I had to make the women semi transparent to make the text completely visible :-)
I like the contrast between these philosophical words and such a mundane thing as a cash machine, and the people that I'm afraid are only interested in getting cash. Wasted words?

both with a7 + Helios 44 2/58

High time to put week 25 on the Day Prime 2019 map!

I used two (!) 173mms.

First of all a7 + Hugo Meyer Satz Plasmat 1:4.5 f=17,3cm (1940):

Some more boring poppies :

1 Lonely poppy


2 Lone poppy


3 Poppies


The Satz Plasmat is a convertible lens. (see here)

Depending on the lens group used, it has the following focal lengths:

front + rear group: 173/4.5 (Satz Plasmat 1:4.5 f=17.3cm)
rear group only: 250/8 (Plasmatlinse 1:8 f=25cm)
front group only: 360/11 (Plasmatlinse 1:11 f=36cm)

The aperture unit is in the middle.
The lens has 3 aperture scales: 4.5-32, 8-32, 11-32

For these photos front + rear group were used: Satz Plasmat 1:4.5 f=17.3cm

Here's the Satz Plasmat in all its glory; photo made with another 173mm, (a7 +) Kodak Kodar F-7.9 173mm (fixed lens of No. 3A Autographic Kodak Model C):

a7s + Hugo Meyer Satz Plasmat 1:4.5 f=17,3cm (1940)


Lovely little lens this Kodar, very sharp (it should be @ 7.9 of course).

1 Opium!


2 Nicotiana tabacum


Hmm, for some reason this lens has a preference for addictive substances.

3 Wild haircut


all with a7 + Kodak Kodar F-7.9 173mm (fixed lens of No. 3A Autographic Kodak Model C)

Both 173s very well used Leo! The sand-sculptures in B&W are quite spectacular. What licking the Pisa tower lacks in good taste, it compensates with a lovely halo (there was a degree of glow in the image I imagine). Quite an achievement to get shallow DOF from these 'sluggish' lenses.

Day 180, finally something to do, although I struggle these days with subject material. Meyer time again. Tele Megor in M40 Praktiflex mount (fortunately my Ihagee extension ring system for Exakta is M40 based, so I don't have to bother with tape to fit M42 adapter) and Telemegor in Exakta mount. There is the Primotar, but for some reason I never developed great love for that one. Good lens, unpractically big, not enough character.

Thanks Paul! The Pisa tower should perhaps be labelled NSFW but some may seem no harm here. OTOH, it's a fine example of sand sculpting.

Subject material, yes, that always seems to be a problem at this time of the year. Flowers galore but beware of flowers a bore ...

I'm glad I have Kijkduin round the corner!

Maybe you should have another go at the Primotar 180. There must be cool character hidden in that lens, somewhere.

I will. Perhaps I'll take to the coast as well.

My day 180 "flowers a bore", but what else to do with a run-of-the-mill macro lens

180-1: pink with a yellow heart



180-2: Blue



180-3: Yellow and red (handheld helicon focus stack of 2 shots)



180-4: Pink and yellow "maid's caps"


All A700 + Sigma 180/3.5 telemacro
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here
