Pine cone by s4sayer

Pine cone

1 hour's daily 'allowance' to venture beyond the house and take a photo is something of a challenge with Mitzi. Horseguards is ideal...a long lane for walking, lots of sniffing for M and much frustration for me...vainly trying to find a shot. Here is today's effort.

beautifully taken. Like your DOF

I like this a lot - it's well composed and sensitively processed.

Well that’s a super shot.....it makes me think your walk is full of tree _ woodland smells specially after the rain.

what wonderful textures - this image really feels great!

Wonderful textures, shapes...Do I understand you correctly that you are allowed only one hour from your property in a 24-hour period?

Wonderful focus, textures, and yet a certain charming softness

Sadly, Yes! Each sortie requires that l carry my ID card and Derogation with date, time left home and the purpose of my sortie. That said, we are in The Sticks...and although the gendarmes (police) have been checking people in the bourg, haven't seen anyone checking beyond. I haven’t been in the bourg since Tuesday 17 March, the day such measures came into force. R shops...and cooks.

Am obliged to take a Derogation stating name, address, time of leaving home and purpose....dog walking in my case...which is one of the permitted purposes. If stopped and no D, 135 euros fine! If stopped subsequently...the fine doubles EVERY time thereafter...to a max of 1000 euros!

There is a Chinese curse...’May you live in interesting times'

Nice rough textured pine cone. I am truly sorry you are finding this so frustrating and I realize that you started before me so that you've had to deal with this longer. It's good that you are allowed out.

So clear and with so many detail. Great shot!

@s4sayer I am usually an optimistic person, slow to anger. Yesterday I felt an inner rage that was quite unfamiliar. The epicenter and source are obvious if one wants to acknowledge it. My dad who was a WWII veteran, a voracious reader who had read all of the classics, and a keen mathematician explained a lot about the world to me using facts and numbers which I have never forgotten You and Mr. S take care.
