Back in August, 2016, Samara began a thread titled Photography. As of June 2019, it has since had sixteen thousand views and 481 replies.

This is part two, as that thread reached seventeen pages and some bugs have been reported. This can happen when a thread gets that size.

So the purpose of the photography thread is to share your photography, meaning the photos you have taken with whatever device you may have used.

The definition of photography is simply the art, or practice of taking and processing photographs. This doesn’t mean they have to be professional — they can be photos of anything at any time, perhaps with bad lightning and a blurry focus. It doesn’t matter!

I remember back in the 90's when I was attending a Rudolf Steiner High School in Perth, Australia. One of our classes was photography. We visited a darkroom in Fremantle, which is a workshop for photographers to work with photographic film. I learnt how to develop my own film, and use SLR cameras back then.

Because of my 2D vision (I only see through one of my two eyes at a time), I tend to have a good eye with understanding what looks good. This has helped me take some good pictures and keep the correct ones when sorting through multiple shots (digital cameras are good for this).

Here’s a few photos of mine from over the years:

I was chopping some wood at my place west of the Blue Mountains in Sydney and found this little one (caterpillar) who I had to rescue.

An eggstra-special picture for you all.

We've got small, medium, and large chickens, which means we have the same in egg sizes. Most of us probably never see the variety, so here are eggs from a Rhode Island Red (large), a Frizzle (small), and a Top Hat (medium). I did not get any green ones this time around - have to be quick as everyone likes them the best. BTW - farm fresh, free range are the best eggs ever. The brown one is a normal size you would get at the grocery store.

I quite enjoy the variety of eggs that various egg producing animals put out. I like how you have them all lined up.

Did you take these ones?

This is from my daughter's holiday in southern Germany and Switzerland. I think this cow enjoying her attention is in a part of Switzerland near a town called Solothurn (her aunt lives there).

Here's a few photos I took of my visit to NASA's SOPHIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy) yesterday. I had free tickets before it was open to the public because I work for NZ Government.

From the car park across the tarmac (below), I proceeded onto the queue which was a lot longer than I expected. Only 50 people from my department had the tickets (out of 7,500) so I guess they had folk from other Government departments too!

And finally getting closer... closer... it was really cold (8c) and I hadn't brought my warm clothes. (I thought we would have been inside, not outside the entire time.) It was also raining on and off so I was damp. To get the door of the plane took about.... an hour and fifteen in the queue, including going through security.

It reminded me a bit of the LHC.

And finally, time to leave:

Laron , fresh pics for you today of caterpillars. All my original pics I took this morning.

I don't know what this first one is. Plant is unknown but possibly some small tree. EDIT: plant is a small Chinese mulberry.


The next 2 are 2 different Monarch caterpillars.


Below: Monarch cat on swamp milkweed. This guy is upside down and if you look closely he is munching on the leaf.

All those knots do not mean "Not". They mean "Yes!!"
