Silk Stockings (dance scene)

Old classic dance scenes sometimes get dubbed over with modern recordings of music.
Some are good.
Some are bad.
This one I like. :)

Someone in the costume department knew how to cut Cyd's skirt. And Cyd knew how to use it.

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

Thanks!... and... The girls look immune to your being around and observing them for the most intriguing or unique moments… but I'm not so sure about being likened to chimpanzees, gorillas or orangutans. :D :D Oh my. I just re-read my original comment. Yes, it would appear that I implicated only the ...

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

After many years of spending time among the dancers, they’ve grown to accept me and my camera, allowing me to get close enough to observe and document their normal behaviors within their natural habitats without threats to my personal safety. :shock: It’s like I’m Jane Goodall… or something.

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

Thanks Henry! Yildiz... nice observation. I didn’t realize it until you mentioned it. My body position is really close to effacé. I should have pointed my front foot, turned out my standing leg, and inclined my head before taking the shot. That would’ve been cool. :D I'll remember that next time. Di...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Love ‘em!... and… yeah… WOW Yildiz! Is that Minolta Reflex? Sury Sury, yes, that’s the Minolta/Sony Reflex. I think it’s a shame that it’s been discontinued, now that there are digital cameras with good high ISO performance that will enable you to get a faster shutter speed and use it handheld in lo...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Hi ya’ll! Love these! This lotus was about 8ft away in a deep pond. I used the 500mm mirror reflex (handheld) to get in close. The Sun had just dropped below the horizon and daylight had diminished significantly. I increased the ISO, but there still wasn’t enough light for such a slow lens and there...

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

I like this topic. :) Henry, what's the story behind your last photo??? :D Sig Shooting in rooms with walls covered with mirrors is always a challenge. This is the “I thought that I hid rather well, but forgot that mirrors will reflect the reflections of other mirrors” shot. A99, 24-70 ZA, F 2.8, 1/...

Re: High Waters (not talking about pants)

Thanks for the comments about the photos! :) And learned something new. High Water Pants. :D As a fast growing teenager, it seemed that my pants were always a little short, so I was often teased for wearing “high waters”. :) I’m not sure how wide spread the term is used, but I figure that people can...

High Waters (not talking about pants)

Hi All, Just a few shots of the swollen Mississippi at the St. Louis riverfront. The river is high but the Arch and its underground museum are above the flood level. However, since the water table is really high, whenever it rains hard the ground water level rises and starts to seep into the Arch tr...

Re: A99-2

Barry, I agree. That's a good combination. Thanks Sury. I'm just a bit of a dance geek. :) I forget that a lot of the routine stuff that dancers have to do is not always apparent to other people. That's why I try to explain some of this stuff. Sometimes people find it interesting, and it can help pu...

Re: Sony World Photography Awards

Barry, I can't argue with your critique on any of these. #10... I'm pretty sure that's a Slim Jim in a lipstick case. The photo's from a project entitled "Yuck" ??? I'm guessing that the photographer doesn't like Slim Jims? Me... I love 'em! Can't get enough of that beef, pork, mechanicall...

Re: A99-2

Hi Valery & all, Loving the shots! :) I hope you don't mind if I add some information about the dance gear. Any items that are worn over the feet and shoes in order to keep the shoes clean (it is a cardinal sin to track dust and dirt onto stage), as well as keeping the feet warm, are generally r...
