All these for today, for I have an extreme writers block- have been busy preparing for Sunday’s extremely important happening till one o’ clock this morning and my head is spinning…  So no boom-boom today…


To Flaneur our Home Town… Dad vs Daughter, Canon vs Nikon

My daughter is studying Graphic Design, and Photography is one of her main subjects. She is home on a week study leave from university. Photography has always been my hobby as well, although I now had quite a few years in which I did no active photography- just taking pictures of travels and holidays. So, to spend some quality time with my daughter, we went on a walkabout in our home town.

I see the grand word for it on WordPress is to “Flaneur”. What does it mean? Flâneur (pronounced: [flanuʁ]), from the French noun flâneur, means”stroller”, “lounger”, “saunterer”, “loafer”. Flânerie refers to the act of strolling, with all of its accompanying associations. (Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fl%C3%A2neur)

We picked one of the seemingly ugliest parts of town, and walked down about 200 meters down the bottom end of our Main Street.   It was actually a challenge- the old man with his old Canon 400D, against the young rising star with her brand new Nikon D3100.  We could photograph anything, or anybody (with their permission of course) in this stretch of road.

You can be the judge who won this flaneur photo competition. It is now autumn, but we slept a bit late for the best light- the lighting conditions were very harsh. But we tried to give a reflection of what we saw…  We only had standard lenses on the cameras, no telephoto or macro capabilities. I did use flash sometimes, my daughter did not.

So- dear readers- the question is: who is the best photographer- Dad or daughter…

Actually- I do know the answer… 🙂

Ok, let’s rather ask- what photo did you enjoy the most, and why?

PS- to answer Natasha- Yes, the Youth can still do unusual positions…
