Diana, Son Kul lake camp, Kyrgyzstan, August.
Just as Rabya, this lovely girl lived aside a lost lake of Central Asia. Her family guested us in a yurt . As soon as I can, I'lll post other pictures of this one of a kind trip.

Rabyà, Karakul, Tajikistan, August 2014.
This 5 yrs old girl travelled with us from Murghab to Karakul ( abt 100 miles ) to go back home in a very remote area of eastern Tajikistan. Despite her young age, she needed a dentist, not available in her home village, so someone first escorted her to Murghab at her uncle, yet someone had to escort back home in an area where cars and vehicles of any kind are very rare. The hotel receptionist where we stayed in Murghab thankfully knew our driver and subsequently decided to ask him a favour. By chance, Rabya's mother was our next guest house owner in Karakul, one of the very most ghost towns i have ever seen.

No special effects applied, straight out of camera this way. No idea what I did to make it (this is not "simple movement blur"), yet I like it.

Who said that wide angles can't be used for taking action pictures ?

Adoptive gathering

Although there's nothing to hide, the presence of minors forced me to look for an alternative approach than the usual football team-like picture. Thankfully the 18mm was wide enough to encompass the whole room for the area I really needed, the one showing the presence of people.

Here's where a 18mm comes handy ! In a bare squared meter there were 4+1

No, it's not barrel distortion.. simple perspective and a really leaning brick tower..

Well, this is an unusual subject and the 35 is always great to perform like a pseudo macro.. you can even see the first customer ready to hand a note to the shop owner lol

What's up?
Photo by: italy74
Not sure if it's 100% sharp, I had just set the lens wide open and I could only snap it out of the shop where my wife entered, thankfully focus was by chance almost there on his eyes so I shot immediately without any further checks. I chose the title because I made a sign to Ashu to catch his attention and he seemed to ask "what's up dad?"

Actually I like this pic.. especially in the top right corner where the roof tile covers the exposed and "rough" (no idea how to express it) bricks of the pillar. Color, lighting and detail allow you to feel the roughness as if you were touching them.

I'm always amazed how beautifully this lens (and their owners) draws landscapes. This is another call to get one asap.... Bravo !
p.s. I love Scandinavia for its nature, hope to visit it sooner or later !

congratulations coming from Italy as well. I see many Canon shooters using old C/Y Zeiss lenses but I have to admit you make absolutely a great use of it ! Bravo !

Every time I see such images my inner voice calls me again to visit such places. Even if I was born here, for some mysterious reason I feel bound to those people living in the middle of Asia.. no idea why. Everything virtually in the triangle made of the Caspian Sea, the Bajkal lake and the Tibet has a terrific influence on me.

Lol - wonder if for a woman's eye it has the same charm it has for a man's one! You (women) can't really imagine how crazy you can drive us at times ! Brava!
