April 30 - Action (#PhotoBlog365)

by Björn Roose April. 30, 2019 540 views

During the week I spend so much hours on my job (and on the way to or from that job) that I'm missing all the action (bad pun intended).

Good thing I was able to shoot some action during the weekend. A friend of mine was demonstrating his capacities as a carpenter at a local market, and I got the chance to see him create the leg of a table.

Funny comments below smile 
I'm curious though, about your comment that the number of hours you spend at work makes it difficult to get out and photograph things. I'm in a similar situation and haven't been able to make the time to take photos the way I would like.
Do you somehow schedule time each week just for photography? Just curious...

Basically I leave home at 6:30 in the morning and hope to be back at 17:45. Half of the month that is not the case, since at this moment I'm doing the work of two people (my colleague had a baby in february and will not be back until the second half of June), and working hours may stretch up until 22:00 in the evening (though I do return home before that time).

For the 365 challenge the ideas however are the biggest thing. Once I have an idea I can produce a more or less satisfying photo in an average of ten minutes. And ideas generally come fluently. But some themes, like last week's "butterfly", I just have to do in advance, because I have no idea but exactly that theme smile

Love the close-ups. I would just love to see the final result

Thanks, Antonio smile Didn't stay long enough to see the result myself however ...

The conversation between you and Bob is quite funny, but I also find it funny that "your wild days are behind you". I would think you are too young to have them behind you :). Was the table for you?

There's "wild" and "wild", Camellia smile Mentally, I'm still very wild, actually, although this is not the forum where you'll notice that and the biggest part of the outside world can basically ignore that now. But being 47 and having a pretty demanding job (and a not so good back), protests and actions in the style I used to maintain are definitely over ... And no, the table was not for me (although I do have a handmade table, it's not one my friend created).

Glad to know, that even at a distance, my instincts are not off. Thanks for the response.

Thanks to your photo, we now have his fingerprints.  I suspect we can stick some unsolved crime on him now.  cop    grinning

Last time my fingerprints were taken, they were not taken from the side of my thumb smile

Were you acquitted?  smile

The taking of fingerprints and being accused of a crime does not always go together in belgium smile  Rest assured however, I have never been in jail for more than a few hours and have not visited such institutions since a good number of years. I have not lost my long hair yet, but my wild years are behind me smile And that one time I did go to trial (at that occassion my fingerprints were however not taken), I did indeed get acquitted ...

Here in the US, one of the first things they did after being drafted during Viet Nam was to take all of our fingerprints.  Thus, if I do go rob a bank, they'll likely find me pretty quick.  smile

Was that in case they found back only your hands (and no more 'dog tag') ? Or did they expect soldiers to become criminals sooner or later ?
