Turning blue in the morning

It turn out that getting a good photo of a copper dial with blued hands is more difficult to accomplish than what I expected.

I took outside the usual setup as usual, and everything was fine until I tried to get the first shot. That's when I discovered that the sensor in the G12 was willing to either capture the color and texture of the copper dial or the blue hue of the hands, but not together in one shot.

Playing with the exposure led me to the dark photo with the hands shown in their striking blue, but the exaggerated orange color on the dial made it look like a DOXA sub.

Switching the camera back to auto mode, gave a better capture of the dial, but now the hands appeared almost black. It was at this stage that I noticed that the hands on the Lorier Safari were not the only things turning blue in this cold morning and that I was starting to have difficulties with hand's coordination. That was the sign for me to get a last wrist shot before returning to the warmth of the study and finish my coffee in comfort.

Great shots, bud! 馃嵒 That Lorier Safari is really gorgeous. 馃槏

Say what you want about TGV but the man knows his dials and hand sets. Stunning Lorier, my man.聽

Nice watch but at 36mm it鈥檚 too small for me as for the strap it comes on, awful.聽

The strap bundled with the Safari is indeed terrible.

It's a great modern retro watch, and a fine interpretation of art deco.

Thank you, the shots could have been better but I reached the limits of auto mode on the camera, and the limits of my own endurance on this frigid morning.

Yeah, at least you鈥檝e managed to change the strap, mine has hardly been out of the box, new home for it next year. Health to enjoy.聽
