Some random abstracts and close-up images with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 floppy disk camera.
It was #FlyDay last Friday, and although I meant to post then there wasn’t quite the time. This particular fly was buzzing around the kitchen and I used the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 for these super low resolution images. #fliesarebeautiful
Took the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 out on the patio and tried some close-ups in ‘macro’ mode for the #ShittyCamaraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge
I’ve been using the ‘high specification’ Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 for much of the #1990sCameraChallenge, but I thought it might be nice to see a sunrise through its more basic sibling, the MVC-FD51. Like before, I held an ND filter over the lens to take off the glare of the rising sun. This time, though, instead ofContinue reading “An unusual #ShittyCameraChallenge sunrise with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51, 07 December 2022”
After the file error on the first day of the #1990sCameraChallenge and sleeping through the sunrise yesterday, this morning I was determined to catch the sunrise before the rain returns. Taken with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. An ND4 filter was held over the lens to take off the glare of the rising sun.
I’ve never done a #MacroMonday before, but as it’s Monday and I can’t resist little diamonds on the cabbage leaves, I thought why not?
I’ve been suffering from GAS again. This time it’s this unusual looking camera, the Nikon Coolpix 990 from 2000. I actually wanted the first of this range of cameras, the 900, for the #ShittyCameraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge but I couldn’t find it. So this one will have to do (and I’m actually very happy with it). OfContinue reading “Checking out the infrared capability of the Nikon Coolpix 990, 25 November 2022”
I have no idea what this plant is called but it has some unusual looking flowers.
It’s #FlyDay Friday again, and this time flies are sunning themselves after the overnight rain. Hope everyone has a great day. #fliesarebeautiful
When I’m out for a walk I have my phone to hand and always take a photograph of at least one flower (seasons permitting) to send to my better half. Of course, I always get carried away.
Out for a walk with the Sony Mavica and the disk is full. Fortunately, I have my phone to hand for these lovely flowers from the side of the road.
It’s been a while since I have been able to take some digital infrared photographs, but this morning the weather was ideal.
We were on our way home after a day in Porto on the high speed train, and I could not resist grabbing a few shots of the sunset.
After several dismal days, the sun came out. Whether this was because today the clocks went back, or that was just a coincidence, who knows? But the clouds were amazing.
When I’m out for a walk, it’s customary for me to bring back a flower for my better half. Not an actual flower, of course, but a photograph of an interesting bloom. There were lots of flowers by the roadside, but these were mostly dandelions and are so common. But then, along a wall, wasContinue reading “By the road in Águas Boas, 30 October 2022”
A selection of urban flowers.
It was such a lovely day to go out for some urban Infrared photography around Carris.
It’s Friday, so you know what that means? It’s #flyday
Lazing on a weekday afternoon …
