My entry for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge
I have been pondering the Weekly Photo Challenge of last week which is Ooh, Shiny! and I think it’s fairly obvious to anyone who follows me that, what is guaranteed to distract me? What my “Ooh, shiny!” is, is…
and I had another distraction this week which had me a little on edge.
I was browsing that auction site (again) and spotted a fairly modern Voigtländer in the form of a Bessa-R. I know that technically this is a Cosina and they just happen to own the name but it’s still a good camera.

I took this a while ago of one of my friends throwing stones into the sea whilst we were at the beach in Santa Barbara. I decided to defocus completely as an experiment. This remains one of my favourite pictures.
I’m adding this as my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge which this week is Satisfaction; both because I am satisfied by the result also the action of tossing stones into the sea is a very satisfying if slightly pointless activity.
I took this a while ago on a hike near the Hollywood sign; nearly stepped on it as my eye was stuck to the viewfinder of my camera. Luckily my daughter was paying attention and alerted me to the little critter.
Photography can be a dangerous pastime.
