Our Stanley, and getting to the point.

First of all, let's get to the point:





..see what I did there..

Anyway, I snapped this dragon at the same time:



And finally, Our Stanley.




Just playing really.

Re: Our Stanley, and getting to the point.

I love it when you're "just playing" Pete.

I envy your "eye" for an image and ability to link diverse subjects to make a visually attractive and entertaining series.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Our Stanley, and getting to the point.

My word, you are having fun with limited DOF, aren't you? That last one, though, is more than just fun, it's special.

Which proves that it is the photographer that counts and not the equipment!

They are surprisingly good results!

I passed over this thread at first because I thought it was "another photo of my dog" type of photo (says me who posts photos of my dogs). You can't always judge a thread by its title. Funny, but I'm sure there is a quote that is similar ...

I've learned from experience that Pete's threads are often not what you might expect but always worth a visit!

Strangely enough I quite often find my threads are not what I expect
