Older photo – from the same trip as the Saker falcon. Going through these old batches, I’m so often thinking what a great camera the G12 is. And though my E-M5 is a wonderful tool, and very much more advanced than the compact Canon, the G12’s combination of size, manual controls, articulated screen, superb lens with a big range, etc etc etc, has still had no real replacement for me.
Hello! A batch of photos from a short visit to Washington last November. Mostly people and trees, as the title says, sometimes combined.
Three night shots to begin with:
I’m rather happy with the last one. :) That’s it for today! See you next time.
Hello! Ages since I last posted. Many photos taken in between, but time for processing has been scarce; so the backlog just keeps on growing.
But anyway, these photos here are fresh from the press :-) I’ve just now been to Dublin (just now meaning till yesterday), and the few days spent there were a blast, from numerous points of view. Photographically, too, it was one of the most exciting trips of recent months, and working on the photos right away felt Good.
The majority of these are from a single walk along the Liffey on my first night there.
That’s it for now, see you next time!
This is a small series of photos taken over a few hours of walking through St. Petersburg last month. This was the only free evening I had, and for some reason a kind of gloomy, weird and slightly unsettling photos resulted from it. I don’t think it’s representative of the city – just a very particular look at it. I’ll be back there in May, probably with different photographic results :-)
Church of the Saviour on Blood. I love this church (even though it’s considered garish by St. Peterburg’s tasteful standards), but whatever angle I tried gave nothing but hackneyed results. I ended up taking the photo through a semi-transparent plastic awning on a nearby booth, and later applying an invert/solarize curve in post-processing. I’m not totally convinced I like this image, but at least it’s not hackneyed (I think). I do like the slightly drowned look.
That’s it, see you next time!
Sometimes you spend days walking around various towns, and end up with nothing much. And sometimes shots seem to be jumping up for grabs – just point the camera and press the shutter. On the last day of our holiday in Austria in July, we spent a few hours in Vienna, and I managed to get all these shots (as well as this one) in less than one hour. It’s cool when it happens :)
That’s it for today! See you next time. :)
