HFF and a fine weekend!

Olympus C8080WZ
and Silver Efex Pro 2

Shot taken 11 years ago in Czerwińsk nad Wisłą.
The village was a major center of culture and commerce in the Middle Ages.
Now it is a place where time stopped.

Hi Marta

Very nice mix of the cat and the derelict building! Maybe the cat used to live there?

Best Wishes, HFF, and a Good Weekend

I think that the cat lived nearby. I met the cat several hours later comfortably sitting at a porch of another house. Or maybe it was a twin cat... I don't know ;)
Thank you, Peter!

Thank you, Frank! HFF!
Now about using square: I can't force myself to crop scans of my negatives, but I have no problem with cropping digital frames. Isn't it weird? ;)

Frank J Casella
has replied to Marta Wojtkowska club
We all have our own 'thing', Marta. I can't crop from a square, but I can easily crop a square from a rectangle. However, it is said that Ansel Adams preferred the square, and would easily crop from that .. vertical or horizontal. Because he didn't like to have to turn the camera.

Marta Wojtkowska club
has replied to Frank J Casella
OK, the square addiction origins seem rather obvious.
For Ansel Adams it was a Kodak Brownie Box camera. Am I right about it?
For me (not that I dare compare to The Master) it was a Polish WZFO Start 6x6 TLR camera.
As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.
Cropping habits are different. Or maybe not so much.
When I was a kid negatives were pricey (in Poland). One learned to use and value every fraction of a square inch of a frame.
Digital technology allows for more carelessness ;)

Frank J Casella
has replied to Marta Wojtkowska club
You said that well, Marta, I agree. This reminds me how the 'kids' born after the transition to digital photography, go back and use film. The often say how much film allows them to fill the frame with more care.

A cool picture that makes me stop and think about what I'm looking at. The fence to keep people from getting closer/wrecking/taking things...the fact of this place's age and how the buildings are falling down. The cat who sits in blissful ignorance. Your composition and excellent choice of b/w format. I appreciate the thoughts that roll around in my head from what I see...thank you!

I don't think so, Jean-Luc.
Maybe he (or was it a she? let me stick to it...) was contemplating the house as its hunting ground ;)
