That picture isn't linking well. I tried clicking it to comment on it and it failed with a flickr error.
Hilarious pic...

A clever water shower for kids. The bucket fills and and dumps at almost-predictable intervals.

Wonderful shot. I have that same lens and it is permanently fixed to my Olympus E-PL1. Great combination. Thanks for sharing.

Two street musicians, apparently members of a troupe that take turns using the same individual instruments.

I was snapping some photos of a bear (with two cubs*) that came wandering into my wildflower garden to gain access to, and partially destroy my bird feeders when a spotted a butterfly, so a snapped a quicky of it. The full image and a crop of the butterfly, and also two images of the the big. burly, hungry, powerful, destructive visitor. Oly OMD 10 mk II and Pany 100~300mm. BTW: white spots on the bear's ears are ticks, and she is wearing a tracking collar. Mass Wildlife collars pretty much every bear in our area.

*Correction: three cubs. Didn't spot the third until I examined some of the other image files more carefully.

The GX7+P20 is my m43 version of the fuji x100 series...



Yet another cat picture...

Grainy (not surprising at iso 2000) but I like the quality of the grain in b&w.

The graininess may enhance the appearance of texture and detail in the dark, striped regions of the cat's face.

I agree... In fact Michael Johnston (The Online Photographer) mentioned recently (in the past few months) that adding grain at the end of PP can have
the effect of increasing the perceived sharpness of photos. In the case of this photo, I didn't need to add any.
