Further proof I’m not good at naming photos.
swan with orange bill and white feathers in the snow looking very pensive, probably because I didn’t bring anything for it to eat # 4170
3 gulls (1 big, 2 small) against blue sky when really all I wanted was to shoot a blank sky to test for sensor dust spots when these guys flew into the frame but, hey, this isn’t so bad # 1991
2 gray motorcycles with blue and gray flames and black tape wrapped around the exhaust thingy # 5791
I’m reading your blog post with a big smile right now … your texts beneath the images are funny. Wonderful images, Ken!
Thanks, Malin. Don’t encourage me.
Could be a bit more descriptive I think… keep working on it Ken.
I think just the opposite, John. I may retire.
I did my sensor check before the trip, and finally used the cleaning swabs I bought oh-so-long-ago. They worked very well.
Bummer about the birds and black tape . . .
I bought my camera through a local camera store and they offer free lifetime cleaning. I’ve taken advantage of this service and they do a very nice job.
I hope the tape was 3M tape. I still have some stock in that company.
Nice use of DoF to envelop the goose in his white body! Not so catchy title…. 😉
Thanks, Art. The more I think about the titles the worse they get.
So…these are summaries of the actual titles?
I wanted to illustrate my file naming prowess here and in that respect, I think I succeeded.
I would concur; I think we all are aware of your file naming prowess now.
Ken, some things don’t even deserve a response…give them names and then someone will be pissed because they don’t like the names you gave them. Do your own thing young man!
BTW, I love the “Swan on Snow with Pensive Look” photo! 😉
Thanks, Earl. You are hired as my file naming editor!
Love these shots, Ken. I am particularly fond of the 3 gulls and of course, the motorcycles.
Thanks, Jimi. I know you like motorized vehicles of all sorts.
This is a good start, Ken. I think we’re getting a better feel for what you want to show in your photographs.
Thanks, Tom. You don’t think they give too much away, do you?
These three are all so good . . . whatever you want to call them. 😉
Thanks, Sync. I think I’ll just go back to using numbers.
I’m having difficulty naming my images lately; part of why I’ve not been posting much. Today I succumbed to Untitled.
The skill to take a good photographe is perhaps more desirable than the ability to come up with clever titles… Great shots!
Thanks, Alessandro. I’ll keep working on my photo skills but I think I’ll save the file naming to others.
This is how bad my title would have been for your first image: ‘Stern Swan Astern’. Really not good 🙂
I love the image with the gulls; wonderful shot!
Perhaps there is a support group for folks like us. Let’s hope so.
Actually, naming your photos with whatever pops into your head at the time is quite entertaining sir! I encourage you to continue this course of action.
Thanks, Charles, but it’s against my nature to put any extra effort into anything that doesn’t pay off. It’s best for all concerned that I leave this alone.
I forgot to mention that I am quite fond of the pensive Swan photo.
Thanks, Charles. I saw him again today and he’s still waiting for a handout.
Picture of the Swan is like a painting, I like it very much.. you did well with the gulls, may be one of them is called “Jonathan”..(If you have seen the film, uou will understand!). Love the twin motorcycles.
We don’t need titles to appreciate a picture, but I’ll bet that is you try, you will do it.
Good luck Ken… lol
Thanks, Chantal. I haven’t seen the movie but I read the book a while back. Way before these gulls were born.
