“It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.” — Voltaire Photo taken with Olympus OM-D E-M1 and Olympus 70-300 mmII.
No, not that kind of gas. I’m talking about Gear Acquisition Syndrome, that malady that affects many, many photographers, who are drawn to the myriad of websites that review, compare, sell and discuss every new camera and accessory. And are … Continue reading
It’s in the betweenness of it all. No longer winter, with sparkled shimmer landscapes. Not yet spring, with blossoms and bloom. We transition. I’m invigorated, camera held, down a familiar path. Some days. But the betweenness of all, right now. Sloppy footing, grayscale … Continue reading
These four young ladies had just left the Visitor Center armed with maps and plans and high hopes for a day at one of America’s National Parks. Which one was it? Sony Nex 6

Little Italy, though at a pace much faster than I had hoped. Reservations at 7, reservations at 7… with the ticking of my wristwatch sternly noting that we’d better hurry. They were full of intent and though the hour differed, … Continue reading

“Life is not so much about beginnings and endings as it is about going on and on and on. It is about muddling through the middle.” Anna Quindlen
It was a throw down moment, at least from one corner. She was a thousand miles distant and within, he with weapon loaded, cocked. So be it from the turret, whereupon he peered. She only carried on. As his finger … Continue reading
Add an iPhone to a few minutes of downtime, and, well, you know what happens.
No, not the cellphone selfie. Thought I’m not above doing that, it’s a bit crude for this purpose. I think it’s fun to take creative self portrait shots. Here’s one I took during a recent trip to Rockport, Massachusetts. Please … Continue reading
