Beach party, Lignano, Aurora bar, may 2012
Lens: DA 35 F/2.4 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy 
Posted By: zVratko, 05-30-2012, 08:48 AM

Just this weekend I figured out why is external flash so important in sunny days. Beside this I found usage of DA 35mm 2.4. There was almost no space to move so I think even 50mm could be too long for this. Except that without AF no way to make photos in similar situations

More photos can be found in my album here: Beach party, Lignano 2012 | Albumino
I know that some are over exposed (and some not very sharp), but if there were no substitution for them I put it still online for people which are on them.

Great pictures, but it makes me wonder, why I don't get invited to parties like this anymore?

Good reason, I'll go with that. It has nothing to do with the fact I'm 63 years old and bald and most of these folks would think I was a dirty old man... I like your idea much better. Ya, canada, that's it. I have had a guided a number of Austrians and Germans out into the park near where I live. They are always interesting, full steam ahead and gung ho. Great people.

In a word: Tess

(I don't see any eye candy for her, at least not from these images)

Tess has been intercepting and burning my party invitations? I like that one even better than the Canada thing.

You couldn't figure out why the campfire was burning just that little bit hotter these past trips? And you say you don't get these invitations any more, but we know better.

Nice fun shots, well done! Otis requests that you pass along to the girls that he is a regular "Party Animal" and a big spender too. He says he will be ten times more fun than Norm if he gets an invitation to the next party!

Regards!

More fun than me? The only way he'd do that would be if he set his hair on fire and ran naked through the party. You really think the little squirrel is up to it?

I'm going to run out to the mailbox right now; I'm certain my invitation was delayed. Seriously, these are terrific spontaneous people photos, something that's far harder to do than it looks. A terrific job, although these pics make me wish I were a few decades younger.

Nice conversation in here Sailor: of course was just delayed, but there will be for sure similar parties during summer, so you have time for some plastic surgery to looks younger Btw thanks for positive comments. And I also thought that will be harder to take these photos, but really people here were great. I hope that next year I'll go there again

Interesting thought I wonder what that might look like?
