You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Frank,

Those images seem to be Equisetum (often called horsetail), rather than bamboo.

Here is a contribution I captured yesterday.

Absolutely beautiful variety and quality of bamboo Akira. Mongo likes # 2&3 in that order . also fascinated by Frank's variety and subtlety

Jack: are the plants I show unrelated to bamboo?

I really like my Voigtlander 40/2. It’s a gem that I highly recommend.

James, in fact, the very lens has tempted me for quite a long time...

It certainly is!

Thank you, Lars!

Frank, thank you for your contribution.  Although the plant in your images is indeed Equisetum, as Jack pointed out, and not of the bamboo family.  But in Japan, we used to use Equisetum to smoothen the the bamboo-made tea scoop for the Japanese tea ceremony.  So they are related.  :)

Jack, this is a nice "twist" for the bamboos!

JJ, thank you for your contribution.  They, expecially the latter two, represent your country really well.  :)

Birna, thank you for your contribution.  Your favorite color gives a nice accent and twist, like the depicted bamboos!

Thanks, Akira. The red print was coincidental.
