More fun with the Fuji 60mm f2.4 macro lens
Between gigs for a little while and we decided to go visit Niagara Falls for a few days – my wife had never been. The first day we drove out to the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, under 25 km from Niagara Falls. A charming, colonial-era town with interesting history, particularly from the War of 1812, we walked down to the shore of Lake Ontario, a popular spot for family photography, evidently, and saw what follows in some of the next few posts. Then we returned to Niagara Falls, Ontario and I’ll try to keep the touristy shots to a minimum…
Another snapshot with the new Fuji 60mm f2.4 macro lens. Notice how beautiful the focus fall-off is. This is a remarkably good lens for under $400.
from the Museum web site:
Little is known about the designer of this table, which is both a functional piece of furniture and a fantastical Surrealist sculpture. The glass tabletop rests improbably atop small balls balanced on the tips of three delicately tapering fingers, generating a sensation of tension and unease. Disembodied hands and gloves are recurrent motifs in Surrealist art, with the left hand, in particular, symbolizing the irrational. The cloudlike element from which the hand emerges also suggests a transition from the conscious to the subconscious world.
from the informational placard:
The Kwoma are a group of people living in the Washkuk Hills north of the Sepik River in northeastern New Guinea. Most Kwoma villages have, or had, one or two ceremonial houses, consisting of a rook reaching nearly to the ground and supported by posts and beams. These structures have no walls, and the sides are left open except when rituals are taking place inside. A finial (yaba), carved with images of supernatural beings, projects from each gable. The decoration of Kwoma ceremonial houses was formerly less extensive that it is today, but since the 1970s, the amount of ornamentation has increased. The supporting wood architectural elements are now carved and painted, and paintings typically cover about half the roof’s interior.
