This is for Smile on Saturday this week with the unmissable theme of Branches and Twigs.

Another wobbly camera pic from one of my local walks, taken in January. It's a fabulous time of year to admire the complexity of trees with all their different branching forms.

The processing changes this quite a bit - heavy sharpening with a double dose of High Pass/Linear Light and then Unsharp Mask heavy on the factor. The texturing was done using a Lighting filter with ... er... texture set high. you may need to zoom in if you want to touch the tactile twigliness :)

Blue colour temperature with yellow spotlight; light vignette.

This also qualifies for my 100x Motion project :)

Thank you for taking the time to look (nearly said like there :( ) . Hope you enjoy the effect. Happy Smiley Saturday Twigginess :)

When is motion not?

The thing I find strangest about this mini-series is how images of something moving look so stationary. I think we expect motion to be depicted in certain ways in a still image.

Often we think something is moving because we expect it to be moving (like cars on a motorway). But take that information away, or confuse it like here, then it suddenly looks like it is stationary (though rarely stationery).

This is the local bus taken with continuous shutter release and in-camera multiple exposure. It's ten exposures but I think we only see the bus in about five.

I admire your stoicism if you are still reading the commentary on this series. This is the last (I can hear the crowd cheering outside now :) ).

It's probably my favourite of the whole set. Partly, of course, because buses are very rare here, but also because it's just so abstract, like a building or perhaps a train at a station.

And your Friday afternoon challenge is to spot the car that was going the other way and appeared as the bus passed. (Hint: look for different hubcaps :) ).

For my 100x Motion challenge.

Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you enjoy the image. Happy 100x :)

A set of three from my mini-subproject using continuous shutter release and multiple exposure in-camera as part of my 2021 100x Motion project. They were taken in the same session as the previous image that I published two days ago.

I find this one interesting because of the superposition of the two vehicles. The van looks to be overtaking but in fact it was following the car (you can see it's going faster too), all in the space of about a second which is vaguely worrying :)

It got me musing about the meaning of location in time. Heisenberg would be proud, lol.

Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you enjoy the image :)

This is a supermarket delivery vehicle. The pandemic has meant that a lot of people (including us) are ordering their groceries online for home delivery to avoid shopping in buildings. This particular one is from Waitrose, which is an upmarket supermarket supplying more refined products to more refined people (so, not including us then).

Since the first lockdown these shops have responded heroically to the huge rise in demand. I hadn't realised, though, that they'd redesigned their vans to cope with the increased loads. How they get these eighteen-wheelers around the tiny lanes in this area I shudder to think...

Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you enjoy the image :)

This is the one I am going to put in the 100x group today. I like the abstraction - it no longer looks like a car but a disembodied something floating along over some complex undercarriage - the tyreless wheels look more like train bogies.

And like the others in this set this has the curious effect of looking like a still image. Well, it is a still image clearly, but of motion looking still... or something... oh, I give up :)

Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you enjoy the image. Happy 100x :)
