I'm just sitting in my easy chair, "Chillin'.

I've been trying to convince the lady folks into baking a peach cobbler. Man, that would sure end the evening on a high note:D

Nice picture Ax, I do like the tone and contrast of that Efke25.

Do you use any filters when you take B&W?

I rarely use filters--maybe a polarizer every so often.
The film has a higher silver content in it than most--actually it's still made the way it was back in the 40's -50's.I'm running out of it--:(

On the Horseman, I did some footwork and $2.00 a pop from the looks of it.
I appreciate the offer of the loan, and would like to take a rain check--I feel bad about not taking you up on it.
About got my hat set for an Olympus EP-600--haven't bought myself a toy in a while--Left a couple more pics on Photo thread, and my results for the Jung test on Fritz's thread.--

No problem Ax on the horseman, she has never been quick or cheap to shoot. You can take me up on it at a later date. I dont have time to play with it right now, always too much going an at this point in my life. My boys keep us pretty busy.

Sure do appreciate it-- it's on my bucket list.
I know about the kids--all mine flew the coop a long time ago--but they never really leave home--:)

Is this a test Ax.

It appears the metatarsals are fused toghether on the little toe and the next one over.

Or the fourth and fifth metatarsals are not seperate but joined

And yes good lenses are pricey especially the fast ones.

Not a test--chuckle-on the contrary-

The condition manifests itself in cases of Gigantism/Acromegaly/ Pituitary tumors.Very rare-, globally-but common in aforementioned---I have a theory about Goliath--:)

Ax's Axiom:--

"Some gain cognizance of "I am here", others want to know --why-- am I here, and me--I rather tend to figure out where from and "For Out".

Chuckle --the answer is simple.

I missed the six toes but noticed the last two were connected. Two sets of eyes are better than one and two heads as long as they arent attached to the same body.:D

I have a utube I think is worth putting on Ax's Corner, you may have already seen it, if not Ax, I think you will appreciate it. Worthwhile.

Check it out.

How is Autumn today?
Thought about you, it began to rain about noon, had that fall chill in it--got a hot cup of soup and sat on the front porch--and watched it come down--then I nodded off---Chin Up--Ax.

Ax/Chick: You might like this.

Look, and it can't be seen.
Listen, and it can't be heard.
Reach, and it can't be grasped.

Above, it isn't bright.
Below, it isn't dark.
Seamless, unnamable,
it returns to the realm of nothing.
Form that includes all forms,
image without an image,
subtle, beyond all conception.

Approach it and there is no beginning;
follow it and there is no end.
You can't know it, but you can be it,
at ease in your own life.
Just realize where you come from;
this is the essence of wisdom.

From a translation of the words of Lao-tzu

Here is another one Quite riddle-like

We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it liveable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.


Something to ponder Lao-tzu was the founder of Taoism, his writings are very similiar to those of Confuscious and some say one was a student of the other.
Translated from Chinese circa 500 B.C.

I love it too, glad i found the book.

The second one reminds me of a similisr concept in music and in art.

In music we soon realize that the silence between the notes or sounds is as important to the compisition as the sound is.

In art or photography we realize that the empty space is as important as the subject.

One compliments the other.

You need to get reading Chickie, you wont regret it.
