fun games with water and more

610_0097-ec1_wEach first Saturday we have our monthly photographers roundtable. Meeting, chatting, talk shopping and taking photographs. Usually we meet for a photowalk, but, when having bad weather, this walk takes place in a museum or so.

During winter we often have weather conditions, that won’t allow being outside or at least it is (very) uncomfortable being outside for taking photographs. For this Saturday the weather forecast proposed sleet, rain, snow, cold winds and slippery streets. Thus, we met inside and using our gear for some fun games.

It’s really fun to figure out together with some friends, how a setting has to be for such a photo. OK, the downside is, everyone only has limited time. When each of eight photographers want to try the same and each one only needs 15 minutes, the whole thing lasts two hours.  But, it’s worth the effort. Each following photographer benefits from his forerunners and the results are getting better. Another benefit is, you can share gear, thus none of us had to have all the necessary gear (gear, you probably usually don’t need).

While four of us tried the water games, the others were trying other kinds of macro, and vice versa, as you can see in my gallery below.

  1. Have you taken your camera through the Dali Museum in Figueres, Spain? It is a lovely small town and the museum (BOTH PARTS) are not to be missed. It has been a day trip I have taken many times both with guests and alone. However, I don’t have your skills with a camera.

    Bonne année et bonne santé! Léa

    1. Thanks, Léa.
      Bonne année et bonne santé pour toi aussi.
      No, I wasn’t in Figueres. I watches some of Dali’s paintings many years ago while in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. I like them both, his early works as well as his surreal paintings.

      1. Ah, but there is so much more in Figueres. There is so very much the museum is divided into two parts. One has a respectable amount of his works but the other side is all jewelry that he created. It is beyond words and would need the same kind of photography as in your post today. That is why I mentioned it. I have some photos but they don’t do his work justice.
