Biography

All my photos I load up are also loaded to Flickr where you can view larger;

https://www.flickr.com/photos/colin-mair/.

I am an amateur photographer and I have taken up photography again, a few years ago, after a break of about 25 years when I had a Pentax and Olympus 35mm SLR.
I am now using a Sony A6000, with a Sony A5000 as a back up and get out most weekend to take some photos.
I have now explored the wonderful world of Manual lens, including old Russian ones which are surprising good!!!
Hope you enjoy the photos and maybe help inspire and give ideas,....

        Nice mix of snow patches and green grass :-) To me the image seems a bit dark for a clear blue sky, maybe is the monitor... maybe is just your intention :-)

          It always amazes me that they have the tech to travel billions of light years to reach earth, and then they kidnap the dumbest people on the planet just to stick a probe up their arse.

            Yeah, but how do we know that aliens have the same values as us like in being interested in the dumbest? Personally I find the dumbest increasingly fascinating in the latest era as they go to ever greater lengths to outdo their peers.

              Yes, the depths to which humanity can sink seems to be never-ending. As the late great Robin William once said about his drink and drug habits, "I found I was violating my standards faster than I could lower them". It's something I personally strive for every day!

            Thanks, to me, autumn is about the colours, water and reflections in the water. And mushrooms.

            Thank you. I got my feet wet for this one and went back a second time with my tripod because the first attempt was too blurred. Thanks for sharing.

            I guess the ownership has changed a couple of times, eh? I like the apparent insignificance of this series of pictures, which show that real 'Americana' can also include Chinese, Vietnamese, Italian etc. Chop Suey! Chow Mein! Ha, that brings back memories ...

              I don't know if it was sold or passed on down the family. I've never eaten here but, based on comments from Facebook, I'd like to try it.



              What made me photograph it was the retro look to it. There are tons of Oriental restaurants in my neighborhood but, other than the signs, they are indistinguishable from any other storefront.
