une très bonne prise de vue, c'est intéressant de voir encore ce genre d'appareil photo.
Bon cadrage avec la barrière et la lampe murale, complétant bien le caractère ancien de tous ces objets.

He looks quite real and you did a good job over this white wall. He reminds me of the photographer who was coming at the school to take a group picture when I was young. We were making faces to him when he had the black piece of cloth over his head thinking he did not see us.

Those were the days !
Think on those pilgirmfathers of the photography who had to carry those heavy equipments. And once in the darkroom use the wrong way of developers; first the fixing bath and than the developer at the end empty glasses !!
TFS and best regards

With a camera like that the photos would probably be superior to most of those taken with modern digital cameras. But for snapshots in the street they were no good. But this is an amusing and original composition which for a few seconds almost fooled me before I noticed the "photographer's" hand.

Amazing shot of the pseudo-photographer busy with his work in the old style.Very well composed photo with excellent vivid colors. It needs immediate repairs too. TFS.

How the photos were made long time ago! I still remember such shot making half a century ago :). Well noticed, perfect presentation.
have a happy Christmas time

the new numeric camera body?!
The WS is photographically better than the main post.
Noel_Byrne (33588) 2013-12-20 1:22
Wow, thats an old camera! One I think we can all on this site appreciate in this digital world where life is so much easier, the art used to be a totally different thing than what I know! You chose a brilliant perspective to take this very eye catching image Angel, really nicely done.
Subhogen (4067) 2013-12-20 2:24
From the thumbnail it looked original!!
Nice shot of the mannequin with his lovely pinhole camera. I like your composition with the ornate lamp and the balcony railing. It all adds up to the old world charm. Well managed light and superb clarity. A photo which should be close to all photographers heart :-) Thanks for sharing.

Good POV and composition.
I like colors and sharpness.
Greetings from Southern Greater Poland.
Nice afternoon my Friend.

I imagine it is very many years since this apparatus was used in earnest. Complete with mannerliness, it makes a fascinating photographic subject. I like the graphism offered by the balcony railing and the sue of the elegant lamp as a frame. I think our photographic predecessors had a much harder time of it than we do.
Nicou (150928) 2013-12-20 4:47
géniale compo quel ancien appareil photo sueprbe et la belle lampe un sacré retour dans le passé et la nostalgie sueprbe ensemble.
Bravo et amitié
Sergiom (88183) 2013-12-20 6:23
Cela fait tout un instrument à transporter si on part à la campagne pour photographier des paysages. Mais je constate en regardant de plus près la main du mannequin que ce n'est que pour la photo. Une bonne idée que tu as bien mise en valeur.

I thought you had stumbled upon the making of an early 20th century film. It is a remarkably good statue and I like the way you have both captured and presented this shot. The angle and the positioning of the figure is very effective, the lamp is strongly placed and the choice of a grey border matches the shot perfectly.

Una imagen muy original y muy apropiada para dedicar al mundillo fotografico, gracias por lo que me toca...
Esta magnifica imagen me trae recuerdos cuando de joven, aun se podia encontrar en algun punto de Madrid un fotografo con tripode, para captar fotos a la gente, pues entonces casi nadie teniamos camara, no como ahora que la tiene hasta el perrito de la Pepi....
Una imagen con buena luz y con una óptima nitidez.
Bien visto y realizado.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana en visperas de la Navidad.

a simple and effective presentation with great perspective and framing, that give dynamism and elegance. There's a well defined graphism, set off by the homogeneous, contrasting backdrop. There are attractive natural details, mystery and amusement for the viewer. I like how you completed your composition with the lamp at the upper left corner. The workshop offers another interesting point of view. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Wow, it is nice to see some folk still do this type of photography. Very dedicated photographer. I admire the passion in him. Good shot. I like the warm lamp as part of the composition.

Pleasent to look at.
Buen fin de semana, e felices navidad.

Ciao Angel, non mi sembra l'ultimo modello di digitale, chissà che bella foto sta facendo, simpatica, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-12-22 18:31
That's a very old camera, the last I used this type of camera was when I was a photography student decades ago. Good pov and good lighting with sharp details. Well done, tfs.
serp2000 (45828) 2013-12-22 22:34
I really like this kind of the urban sculptures. Good installation, amazing view, the lamp has completed this composition. Good capture! TFS!

macjake (72447) 2013-12-28 12:18
could you possibly imagine using a camera like this one!
Oh what an experience that would be.
No doubt that this camera doesn't fit into your back pocket :)
a great piece of history, and I like that you included in the light fixture too.
wolf38 (31296) 2013-12-29 5:50
Hello angel. Truly an original photo and a special eye-catcher at the same time. An ideal image for TE and all photographers.
Best rgds, Wolfgang .... a happy new year
annjackman (21903) 2013-12-30 23:39
I am glad that we don't need to carry a camera of that size around anymore! A super composition with all the elements well placed. The lamp is a lovely addition forming a good diagonal with the camera and railings. Well seen and taken.
Happy New Year, Ann

A curious moment. A perfect timing in your snap. And it is just works that the background is that perfect white and does not interfere with your subject. Awesome!
