Pentaxium Walk
Lens: Vivitar Series 1 105mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: Limerick, Ireland 
Posted By: rparmar, 08-16-2010, 07:25 AM

On Pentaxium my wife and I went for a leisurely walk through our neighbourhood and down the river. We had an important heart-to-heart conversation. I took one lens with me and composed a few photos, but mostly just listened. So these photos are secondary, in a way, to the larger context. Maybe they benefit from that fact.

Love 'em. #3 in particular with that silvery shine. It's good to have a heart-to-heart talk - occasionally. Hope it was a positive one!

Excellent photographs! Specifically the tones of the first and minimalistic composition of the third.

Thanks Boris and Georg. No, I did not use flash on these, but I did on the insect macros from the same day.

Really great texture, Robin. I love that first one and the toadstool. Well done, and with wonderful associations, too.
