Parisian

Frenchman, originally uploaded by naughton321.

Larger here. He was very obliging – the French understand that photography is an artistic pursuit!

Another nice piece of eye candy from Rune T.

More from Rune T. This is not a Photoshop job – he actually managed to balance the glass, without any support.

Another nice one from Rune T. This is a composite of three liquid pours – rotated through 180°. Like mushrooms or jellyfish…

Red Wine

Red wine into glass, originally uploaded by Rune T.

Today, I am showcasing the work of Rune T, a Norwegian photographer who specialises in macro and studio photography.

Lots of wine pours on flickr but Rune T is very good at this kind of stuff.

Cap:

Took more than 30 tries to get both the timing and pouring right – had to pour pretty fast to get the wanted effect, and therefore I missed the glass a lot.

Used a clean glass for each try since I wanted a picture without a ‘dirty’ glass. Luckily I had 6 similar glasses, so I only needed to do the dishes 5-6 times, so you can imagine that this shot took a lot of time to get the way I wanted to.

By the way; the wine was not drinkable anymore, so no good wine was wasted in the process!

U Bein Bridge

Lonely Walk by Anna Pagnacco.

Tag search ‘burma’. There are loads of pics of this bridge up on flickr but this is the most interesting one I came across. Kind of stark but that makes it unique.

Picture Post seems to have gone a bit black and white of late. Not that it’s necessarily a bad thing. I will try to introduce some more colour tomorrow!

Peeping by Anna Pagnacco.

Tag search ‘burma’.  Like this one a lot – captured the moment, crystal clear and a very nice composition.

Tag search ‘burma’, another from Sara.

Cap:

Village life in Burma. Simple and honest, open and unapologetic – everything you see on their faces.

Woman with Cigar

old woman w cigar, originally uploaded by Sara Heinrichs (awfulsara).

Tag search ‘burma’. Another great shot by Sara Heinrichs, whom I have featured on this blog several times before.

Larger here.

Cap:

An old woman lights her cigar at market. Love the towel.

Many men chewed betel nut with lime (the alkaline coral kind, not the green citrus kind), wrapped in a betel leaf, sometimes with spices added . (It also causes mouth and throat cancer, but is reputed to prevent cavities, take yer pick.) Nasty bitter stuff, betel, and it stains teeth and mouth a rather dramatic dark red. They spit the juice, making a crimson stain where it hits.

Some women, on the other hand, had these hand rolled cheroots, fragrant and rich smelling, and HUGE. Strange to see a small woman with such a big cigar, but it was actually pretty common.

Virginia Beach

Regent University, Virginia Beach, originally uploaded by eye2eye.

Tag search ‘leica’. Thought this was a very nice snap – taken with a Minilux, which is a fairly cheap, 35mm point and shoot Leica.
