How long is it going to take to get back to anything like this??? It’s a great photo, Jane, your blurring is perfect! Reply ↓ Tofino Photography May 1, 2020 • 3:13 pm panning at about a 1/30 th of second? I use to do this but haven’t in decades. I just might try this with my eagles. thanks Jane! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 2, 2020 • 4:51 pm HI Wayne, Yes! I just checked my settings: 1/20 sec f/22 ISO 80. I did this for a photography class, and I agree, something we should try more often. It’s challenging for sure. Glad you enjoyed this one- thank you! Reply ↓ Adrian Lewis May 1, 2020 • 12:58 am Excellent picture, Jane, and a very apt title just now. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 1, 2020 • 7:36 am Thanks, Adrian. Seems like they were so long ago… Reply ↓ plaidcamper April 30, 2020 • 8:57 pm I can barely remember… Thanks, Jane! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 1, 2020 • 7:34 am Seems like years…. thanks, Adam. Hang in there. Reply ↓ www.corneliaweber-photography.com April 30, 2020 • 8:40 pm Loving the shutter speed in your image , Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 1, 2020 • 7:35 am Thanks, Cornelia. I don’t try panning very often but it is exciting to try. Glad you like it. Reply ↓ Michael Scandling April 30, 2020 • 7:52 pm There you go, all monochrome again. Beautiful. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 8:07 pm Thanks, Michael. Like a dream… Reply ↓ Michael Scandling April 30, 2020 • 9:32 pm So true. Especially now. Reply ↓ Khürt Williams April 30, 2020 • 3:16 pm Yep. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 5:41 pm Hi Khürt. 😊 Thanks. Reply ↓ sharonbuehler April 30, 2020 • 2:29 pm I moved to SF in 1965 so this photo does remind me of really good old days. Are they running now? Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 5:40 pm You experienced a great era in SF, Sharon. No, the cable cars haven’t been running since the shutdown, about seven weeks now. Thanks for viewing. 💙 Reply ↓ Eliza Waters April 30, 2020 • 1:59 pm Ah, yes! And we never gave that closeness a second thought. Will it ever be that way again?? Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 5:37 pm So true, Eliza. That’s a good question. I think some things will never be the same. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Reply ↓ paula graham April 30, 2020 • 12:30 pm Carefree abandon, no fear, all is well that ends well. Loooovely photo, Jane Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 1:37 pm Thanks, Paula! Yes, the feeling of pure freedom…remember that? Glad you enjoyed this one. Much appreciated. Reply ↓ 35Chronicle Photography April 30, 2020 • 11:19 am Verrrry cool shot, Jane! Best, Rob Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 1:33 pm Thanks so much, Rob. This was a fun one to shoot…back in the days of freedom. 🙂 Reply ↓ David April 30, 2020 • 10:39 am It certainly seems to be the “Good Ol’ Days.” It must be different not to have the cable cars on the streets. When we were under mandatory stay-at-home, the buses were still running a full schedule in COS – mind you there were so few passengers. With restrictions relaxed, the number of passengers have increased but not appreciably so. It’s almost like people are waiting for the other shoe to drop … and not in a good way. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 1:33 pm So true, David. It is a very strange feeling that most of the public transportation has ceased. Be safe as things start to relax- I know you will be! Reply ↓ rabirius April 30, 2020 • 10:18 am Brilliant photo, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 1:31 pm Thank you, Rabirius! I thought of you when I converted this pan shot to black and white- it reminded me of your work. 🙂 Reply ↓ Robert Parker April 30, 2020 • 9:51 am It sure does look like a good time. And with the old buildings in the background blurred, they could be time-travelers! Cool shot! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 1:30 pm Thanks, Robert! I thought the same about time travel with this panning technique. It’s funny, they look like they are speeding by but the top speed of a cable car is about 8MPH. 😆 Reply ↓ camerapacker April 30, 2020 • 9:29 am Sure was. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 30, 2020 • 1:28 pm Seems like so long ago. 😦 Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
