I love how everyone is coming together over inauguration Bernie memes. Biden promised unity, but Bernie delivered it.

"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas

Haha, thank the maker he lives!

Those are beautiful pictures.

Here’s a handful of my own.

Those are lovely, stardust_1138! What kind of camera do you use, or are these shot on a phone?

Thank you kindly, jedi_bendu! I use my phone (Samsung) but I use all natural lighting as I never use flash or even filters unless it feels absolutely necessary. These three are all natural without any tinkering. I do however have a Fujifilm digital camera and a Lomography La Sardina film camera I received for Christmas. I hope to get a film scanner soon as I’d like to have them on my USB stick and to post on socials. I’ll have to share more of my photography. Maybe I should start a thread? Seeing other’s photography would be great too!

Oh thanks, RicOlie_2! Though I’d say this thread looks to be more for paintings and that type of art versus photography?

Me too, and also me too. I have Samsung Galaxy S7, and although I do a bit of photography on my Canon DSLR, more often than not I use my phone - for the wider aspect ratio and because unless you’re zooming in, there’s not much of a difference in quality.

A photography thread is a nice idea! As well as photography in general, I do railway photography as a hobby (or did, up until 2020…) so I could maybe post some shots in there too.

Well, it also used to be where people (including me) would share their photos, but I think Duracell’s collages were the main feature of the thread after a while.

A photography thread wouldn’t be a bad idea, though.

There is already a Photography thread on the site - and a few more similar threads listed in the ‘Art’ section of the An Index Thread for Media : Film, TV, Music, Art, Books + Comics, Games, and Technology index thread, in the Media forum.

Though please feel free to create a new Photography thread if anyone so wishes - it has been a while since the above thread last posted in. 👍

Sweet photos, Stardust1138!

Ditto to that, jedi_bendu! Hopefully you’ll be able to get back into the hobby soon. Railways are always really cool. So I’d be curious to see your pictures.

Makes sense. Thanks for clarifying, RicOlie_2! I will have to go through it more so as I’d be curious to see your pictures as well.

Thank you, oojason! Didn’t realise that but I just created a new one.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone shares.

Let the shuttering begin! Haha
