We went to the cinema to see the premier of "Dune part two" Birna point to a row to sit (look at the ticket ) and this is where we parked (creative photo)  ;D
Just saying ...

Birna pioneered in yet another field of photography by "pedipulating" the image!   ;D ;D ;D

Whatever it takes to get the intended result, Akira :)

Just look at Paco's contortions here .....

It darkened rapidly and we even got a blue moon palm -- if my camera is to believed. Or not. It lies routinely, sorry to say.

Once in a while I saw my Z9 during my stay here in Spain, usually when Paco asked me to recharge the battery. That didn't happen frequently as he was able to wring out an amazing number of shots -- unlike me, again as usual, as I have never managed more than say 250 from the Z9 and he did accomplish many times that figure. Must be something like Spanish wizardry involved.

However, when I actually did see the camera, I noticed that the Smallrig L-bracket and the Laowa 11mm lens both reflected IR quite strongly. The latter was surprising as I have used the 11mm lens for IR shooting many times and never noticed an issue, but perhaps I ought to put the IR filter behind instead of in front of the lens hereafter??

I'm pretty sure that Paco is using the "rasqueado" technique to operate the shutter button.

IR can give unexpected results -- in this case, I got a selfie when shooting two kids trying to coax money from the ATM.

Today, some surprise, out of all the high tech in the gerar, the infrared filter was set inside the lens with a couple of drops of blue tack...and it worked  ;D

We went to the park, again, trying to get in from another door but still, no crossing of the river. Today was raining so that´s the excuse. A little tour of an exhibition and installation with information about the park, the beach and  the salinas around us, with some historical evolution throw in. This will be the plant of the day "Aristolochia baetica"

And just like that, I'm going to miss this color around!

  If you haven't got the chance to go to a NG meeting, do so. If you have, you know  ;)
