@Phil Wood, day 3

Nice picture but seems very much compressed, lots of artifacts...

Thanks for pointing it out. It is, of course compressed - as all images here are, but I have been having problems with Lightroom exports recently. Many are fine, some are dreadful - this was not the worst.

I have tried a few options and improved it.

I want to point to two pictures on day 5:
De strakke hand by Dopol - it has a painting like quality, like the girl is mirrored on the left in the wall painting.

Trio by Snegren - Typically Dutch, but well executed!

In general there are some interesting pictures around. Thank you all for all your contributions!

I was inspired by Wētāpunga, and the question "Do you ever suffer episodes of high GAS?"; answer "More like recurring bouts of constipation."

Excellent work with a few standouts for me deserving of a shout out:
alanfrombangor Day 1 Trees in the mist - dynamic and graphic
Phil Wood Day 2 Weston super Mare - Bond villain property listing?
pegelli Day 3 I'm going (wal)nuts today - beautiful textures
Dopol Day 4 spot the difference -
Snegren Day 5 Trio - classic

Today i had to go to my 8 weekly tanking session - and at a round point near the hospital there is an artwork. But in that neighbourhood is also a music institute (Lemmens) and you never guessed it - a cloister, with a not so big but very nice park. So i'm finding new spots to take images of.
The first bang wil be on sunday. Tomorrow it may be restauration of the Revox B790 (also the possibility of the first bang, or smoke when i make an error with those elco's!).

Thanks Lee! A challenging week for weather here, lots of rain and generally windy. Images that have particularly caught my attention are
DAY 1
Snegren, quite disturbing and disorienting, I'd be interested to hear the story behind it.
Phil Wood, a crafty way of squeezing it in and creating a nice diagonal.
Robbie, Good to see parents bringing their children to school by bike, what are the blurred shapes they're looking at?
DAY 2
addy landzaat, rust never sleeps but it creates some lovely shades.
LAbernethy, I like the connections, such as "legacy" from Minolta.
DAY 3
jvsanchez, a pleasing sylvan scene.
Jonas A-R, you have some photogenic and cooperative models, lovely portrait.
onsplekkie, oh dear, once someone's transport, now dumped.
pegelli, nice still life, not often I see a green walnut.
DAY 5
Jozioau, some lovely textures here.
Snegren, perfect alignment.
fennetje, you are lucky to live in such a beautiful city, I especially like the soft reflection here.
Dopol, a slice of life with three people all looking in different directions.
DAY 6
gregja, I like the high contrast intersections.
onsplekkie, nice tension between the funny signs and the apparently serious conversation.

With all my pictures from our trip to Scotland and DPE2023, I had my hans full and failed on the first week here. It's not unlikely that I will do so in the coming days as well. However I am trying to keep an eye on the entries and enjoy it so far!

Revox restored? :)
How is the sound?

The sound of the revox is better than what's in my picture of day 8 (those came down with a bang - some didn't & show up in a museum)...

To be honnest - the cardridge on the Revox isn't the original one but some ortofon element that got mounted by a specialized technician near the airport by a company selling those beauty's. Helas it doesn't exist anymore. I had to cough up only 200€'s to replace the belt for the moving of the needle-element + a new element+needle.

There are still craftsmen left in Germany, Swiss, or France though. And i got this kit from such a company in Switzerland (i paid too much probably but they generated some good documentation).

I'm not going to pretend it's the best available record player - but it sounds pretty ok. I'm gonna procure a reserve needle (one never knows).

-- about day8 --
I visited the WHI site Gunfire in Brasschaat - and i managed to take +/- 840 images in 3,5 hours (it got near my record at a car fair in Brussels). I'm not going to pretend all the images are good (when you photograph driving tanks at 10fps it'll add up quickly). But i managed to film a driving tank with smoke and sound (and that's what we went for). And take images of a driving-lesson tank - while giving smoke and turns.

There's a lot to see - but the museum is going to be pulled in parts - next year a big part of it will move to Ieper (Ypres in french) - and there won't be any driving possible (due to neighbours hating tanks - i adore trans & tanks...).
When you cannot drive with a tank it becomes worthless.

In fact there are a few events comming up the next few weeks/months - a nocturne. Whenever you love tanks, and anti-warplain weapons - hurry before its gone and pulled apart! We do hope the tanks will drive a last time next year (those who know me - can best get in touch trough André, i will follow up with him - to see we can participate in that event when it comes).

The site with all the info: https://site-gunfire-brasschaat.be/ they are a part of the War Heritage Institute (www.warheritage.be).

I've chosen the V1 because i was suprised by its size. It's a private owned piece that won't come with the collection to Ieper! So when you want to see it you'll have to be quick!

It is a museum "swimming pool". Glass with a layer of water on it. Under the "water" it looks just like standing on the bottom of a swimming pool. Above ground it looks real as well. Disturbing and disorienting sums it up nicely.

The photo was taken on a Sunday, so there was no school for the kids.
They watch the participants of the 18th swb marathon run in Bremen.

@alan thank you!

Lots of really really nice shots here everyone. I've really enjoyed visiting each day's thread.

Hi Alan, thanks. Often Bruges feels too crowded, so I might stick with evening & nightshots for now. No such problems in Wales & Swondonia, I believe

I wonder how many more cameras LAbernethy still has ;)
That is one impressive collection so far.
