    time has passed

    I drove by an abandoned school bus I had captured one and thought it would make a decent "time has passed." I did almost get a tick for the cause... found a little deer tick crawling up my pants after getting back to the car.

    SIJ - Day 13: Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library as Seen from Commo

    (Oops... uploaded this initally to my own gallery) Yesterday I presented the interior of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. This is a photograph of the exterior of the Beinecke as seen from Commons. The photograph is an extension of the idea I have been pursuing wherein the...

    SIJ - Day 10: Malone Center Interior Detail

    Well, I've done quite a few gothic interiors and portals; I will return to those shortly, but here is some modern architecture. On Day 1 I showed the exterior of the Malone Center. I mentioned in the description that the "front" of the building "features a sweeping glass...

    SIJ - Day 9: Grand Staircase, Linsly-Chittenden Hall, Yale University

    Linsly-Chittenden Hall was originally two separate buildings that served as annexes for the old University Library (then located in Dwight Hall). Today, Linsly is a recitation hall and faculty office building for the English Department and Chittenden is a classroom building. Chittenden Hall...

    SIJ - Day 8: Gate - Trumbull College Master's House, Yale University

    Continuing the theme of Gothic portals apparently... this is taken inside the Trumbull College Master's House gate. Trumbull College is one of twelve undergraduate residential colleges of Yale University. The college is named for Jonathan Trumbull, the last governor of the Colony of...

    SIJ - Day 7: Sterling Memorial Library, Yale University, Detail - Cloisters

    This photo is from Sterling Memorial Library, on the first floor, in a section called "Cloisters." The Cloisters is a long hallway lined with these windows, and you can see that it goes off to the left here. This is from a hallway off of Cloisters that leads to the Irving S. Gilmore...

    SIJ - Day 6: Ingall's Rink, Yale University at twilight

    David S. Ingalls Rink shot at twilight tonight. Designed by architect Eero Saarinen and built between 1953 and 1958 for Yale University, it is commonly referred to as The Whale due to its appearance. The building was constructed for $1.5 million, which was double its original cost estimate...

    SIJ - Day 5: Battell Chapel, Yale University

    Continuing the sacred theme... I've tried this shot several times. Neither my Pentax K10D nor the K-x I briefly owned rendered acceptable results. Yet my E-PL3 made quick work of this. I would like to have captured the whole door, but this perspective is taken from a very narrow alley...
  16. SIJ - Day 4:  Dwight Memorial Chapel, Yale University

    SIJ - Day 4: Dwight Memorial Chapel, Yale University

    The students are not around this week at Yale, so I thought I'd grab this opportunity to shoot interiors this week. Besides it is pretty cold and it's nice to settle into this kind of contemplative shooting indoors. This is Dwight Memorial Chapel, Yale University, Old Campus. Originally...

    SIJ - Day 2: Sterling Tower from Woolsey Rotunda

    I mistakenly added this to my personal gallery instead of SIJ; this is my entry for January 2. Continuing the theme of architecture generally, and further the idea of showing two buildings in one photograph, this is a shot of Sterling Tower from outside the Rotunda of Woolsey Hall. Woolsey...

    SIJ - Day 1: Detail - Cesar Pelli's Malone Center

    A bit of an introduction. A year ago I shot a series of architectural studies at Yale University. In the interim I have happened upon Mu 4/3 and have decided to try to recreate a similar set of studies in this format. This is to satisfy a desire to learn these cameras and format as well as to...

    The two mighty Olympuses!

    About ten years apart Olympus introduced two mighty compacts, that the world should have paid attention to: first the mighty C-8080, with magnesium body, an articulated display, a high-resolution EVF, a superb grip, and a lot of other goodies. But sales were disappointing, the camera was...
  22. Three nice cameras!

    Three nice cameras!

    The main problem with the K-5 (right) is size (although much smaller than many other DSLRs). The Olympus XZ-1 is excellent in bad lighting, but has a short zoom. The Sony HX9V is one of the best video cameras around, and has a decent zoom as well, but it doesn't like dusk at all! The...

    From the hip walking-by shot - the screen on the Pen E-P3 is pretty good at oblique angles to still see what is going on.

    Heavily cropped view that accentuates the balance and horizontalness (!!!) of the scene. Taken on a foggy morning with 40-150 M.Zuiko at full power.

    Yes, the E-P3 is small, but not riduculously so and the kit zoom is nicely balances the body.
