Thanks for the comment Richard, and I like your whole 240 series, a fine collections of shots of what looks like a nice week of vacation (but maybe it wasn't) in a coastal area. The portraits of Millie and Freddie stand out for me as well as the frog and the mood in the entire series is giving me a positive vibe.

Very kind Pieter ! Thanks a lot... I try to be a positive person, despite being called Eyore (qv AA Milne, Winnie the Pooh books)by my children on many occasions !
Great colours in 250-1 & seems sharp for a lens with no great reputation ! Having an a6000 always helps !
All the best
Richard
So many wines, so little time......

Better late than never, since monday we're in week 36 for focal length between 244 and 250 mm.

For me maybe the long end of my Sony 18-250 (APS-C) if I find the time, but maybe there's other options as well. We'll see, anyway I hope to see more


Well, I should use my Telemegor 5.5/250mm this week then! Let's hope the weather gets a bit better ....

The Telemegor is in the camera bag, but I'm still looking for my inspiration...

Thanks Richard, and contrary to popular belief I find the Sony 18-250 a fine lens, it gave me many wonderful photo's on my A700 for many years and now on the A6000 it's showing it capability up to 24 MP as well. I don't use it enough so it's for sale (but no interest from buyers), a good reason to bring out once a year for day 250


Paul and Fred, bring out those Telemegors and show what they can do. It would be a shame if day 250 was left to a single long zoom end of a superzoom   


First a few more from yesterday "after the rain"


250-2: A candle of blue flowers



250-3: A few late ones are slowly riping



250-4: Bird bath reflection



Today I took my bicycle and rode into Antwerp to get some Porta 160 for the film challenge, a good opportunity to take some more 250 mm shots along the way


250-5: Leo complained that with his Enna 240 he had to keep stepping back, well the same with 250 mm on APS-C. One step further back and I would be swimming in the Antwerp harbour , so sorry for the tight framing



250-6: And for this lower part of a block and tackle I was at the other side of the street



250-7: Zaha Hadid designed this modern contraption on top of a former fire station. Together it's now the office of the harbour authorities. The crane and windmill pylon are not part of her design



250-8: Zaha Hadid pointing the way


All A6000 + LA-EA4 + Sony 18-250 @ 250 mm

I can never miss out on a Telemegor opportunity. They are so nice. With the possible exception of the 300/4.5, at least for me, because my 300/4.5 is seriously unsharp at f/4.5 and not a lot better at f/8.

For my Day 250 I took my lovely, brass, WWII Tele Megor to the old tram bridge (a bicycle bridge nowadays) of Schipluiden. The photo gods smiled on me and gave me a perfect golden hour :

1 Old tram bridge, Schipluiden


2 Old tram bridge, detail


3 Under the gridge

I like the turnout for last week, allthough I have the feeling we're still missing one of our regulars

@Hezu, that plant is a great alterntive for swirly bokeh, I like all the irregular patterns it is creating

@Snegren, all nice studies of shapes, patterns and lines Paul, I especially like the two waves as well as the red light

@darosa, great light and colours in that first shot as well as the second, In the second I'm amazed how different the same paint looks in the sun vs. the shadow. It creates a nice colour contrast in addition to the lines. Interesting detail (for me), my father worked at the factory in Amsterdam where this bridge was built, but much later (from 1952 until 1963).

Tomorrow we start week 37 for focal length from 251 - 257 mm.

Might seem odd length with a low turnout, but pls. don't overlook the fact that 1.4 x 180 = 252

We'll see what turns up

For me Day Prime is going into hibernation until Day 273,05; then, Day 300, the last big one. After that only Days 304,8, 350 and 360 remain for DP 2020.

Interesting to hear there is a pegelli link with the Schipluiden bridge Pieter!
The bridge is green, but the golden hour messed that up completely :-)

I could possibly find some 1.4x and 2x teleconverter days, but don't feel like it. I'll retire from day prime, enough for one year. I need to recharge my "battery".
