Faces in Blijdorp

Bright colors!

Last week I started a  I started a GuruShots account. GuruShots.com is a photography game, they say. It’s free, but if you want to get ahead, you have to buy swaps, fills and keys. Good quality of your photos does not mean that you end up high. It is determined by votes. Seems very fair, but the system determines whether or not your photo is seen. Only than people can vote for your foto. To be seen you need swaps, fills and keys. And then we are back at the begining of this post.

Fine way to earn money for GuruShots. It again shows that nothing on the internet is free.

Positive about starting that account was that I looked op a lot of old photos. The challenges were about colors, bright colors. So here some of the bright colored shots I entered.

A small surprise

Again pictures taken in Blijdorp, the Zoo in Rotterdam. Animals that I have not photographed that often. But here it is nice, because you can go in to the enclosure. So no fence or glass and they are close. These are Swamp Wallabies. They are not that big and look very cute. And then those beautiful long eyelashes …… 🙂

And then I saw it. Oh, what a nice small surprise. I did not know there was a joey.

It is still very small and has little hair. It nibbled very briefly on the rose leafs. I did not really like that I think, because it immediately fell back into the pouch. I think it was too small for such food.

The photo is not sharp, but I wanted to show it, that nice small surprise in Blijdorp.

Allwetterzoo

Last August I went to Allwetterzoo in Munster, Germany. A beautiful zoo. I made one post about it, but forgot te edit other photos of that visit. So now I’m sharing a selection of shots of that day. There is more, so there is more to come.

To be continued 🙂

Promotion videos

Today I made a number of promotional videos for my website. For me it was practice to see what is possible with Ripl. That is software that was initially only to be used on a mobile phone and the like. I had tried that before, but I found it inconvenient to always copy pictures to my phone. Now it can also be done on the PC. Very nicel, because there you have all the photos available.

I have taken a subscription (which you stop any day) on the pro version. At first it was disappointing. I thought: “is this all there is”. But I had not yet discovered all the options. There is a lot and it is very user-friendly. If you also want to try it, that’s free. It is also fun to play with. RIPL

Here under a number of test videos. I’d like to hear your thoughts about it. There is also sound. Lots of fun! 🙂
