Best of Random Gallery Picks

Random Gallery Picks are one of the greatest features of this site IMHO - because every now and then, a real gem pops up from years ago that you would never notice otherwise. Unfortunately, they're also a bit transient - next time you load the site, your random picks are gone, and you can't share them with anyone else.

This thread is for posting some of the gems turned up in "Random gallery picks" and sharing them with others. Post them as you find them, best with a link to the gallery page.

A great idea for a thread. I'll happily join in when a gem pops up, the transcient nature of the Random Picks is great but sharing some is a wonderful way to point out some great but perhaps forgotten images.

DavidH was a regular poster to the gallery when I first joined RFF and he made the most of the many interesting locations that his job took him. His gallery is well worth a look.

I always seem to notice the interesting ones just after I've clicked on something else, and a fraction of a second before it vanishes back into the gallery

Periodically I go way back in the Gallery and find many especially interesting images. Is there a way to regenerate random picks or is it only possible when we login?

...OK, I answered my own question, I think.

These seem to be from an amazing series shot on Ilford multigrade paper using a view camera.

Very classic (Edward Weston up and down) but very well done.

Best idea for a thread in ages. I've kicked myself on more than a few occassions for not favouriting ramdom images, just as I click a link and it's gone, forever.

^Seconded. "Hippodrome" is one of my personal RFF classics. Right up there with Keith's shot that started the "Medium Format, long may it live" thread.

Maybe somebody in this thread can help me find a shot I saw long ago and didn't bookmark. It was a portrait of a young woman, possibly taken by her father at a 4th of July or similar outdoors event, in B&W. It was the best capture of that very teenage "I hate you for taking my picture but I still want to look good" expression I have ever seen.
