    Travel In the Tire Tracks of George A. Wyman - photographed with Micro Four-Thirds

    In 1903, George A. Wyman rode his motorcycle from San Francisco to New York and became the first person to cross the country on a motor vehicle - car or motorcycle. In the summer of 2016, I endeavored to follow his tire tracks as best as I could on an electric motorcycle. As I prepared for the...

    Travel Athens Adventure

    My wife and I are in Athens, Greece for a week for our tenth wedding anniversary. Time flies! I reckon I'll have a lot of photos to share eventually, but will post a few as I go, as downtime allows. The flight was long from Seattle, about ten hours in the air to Amsterdam, and a connecting...

    Advice Wanted I'm toying with the idea of travel one-handed camera, need opinions/user experience please

    Hello. I've been thinking a lot for the last few weeks about a setup that's very easy to carry (large pockets or smallest holster bag) but more importantly one handed (right handed) use. The use cases are walk-abouts (around towns and cities), walk in the park with someone I like and a small...

    Travel La Sagrada Família, Barcelona

    Went to Barcelona. What a great place. The La Sagrada Família was magnificent. I changed from RAW/B&W JPG to RAW/Colour JPG as the colours just blew me away and I was enjoying the colour more than my usual B&W shapes/lines settings. The East wing has blue/green stained glass and the West...

    Fuji Looking for an excuse to get a new toy

    As it was in the past, it's about time: in two weeks I'm heading into Mangystau first and then I'll reach Uzbekistan by train. Mangystau is a striped desert and Uzbekistan is full of ancient cities , so it's going to be quite a visual treat. I was thinking of bringing this kit X-E4 with 16mm...

    Weston-Super-Mare Trip

    Went to the Photography Show on the 20th June 2023 at Weston-Super-Mare and it was my first time there. A lot of very interesting architecture and a mix of old and new buildings. The palm trees reminded me of my time living in Sicily and how much I miss living near the coast. A very...

    Architecture Building details

    Happened upon an occasion to shoot at Kristiania College today, so in between shooting speakers keynotes and not as well as diverse crowd/mingling shots, I got in some shots for myself. Didn't find a tread for building details, so thought I would put one up.

    We're planning a big family vacation (Greece, Italy, ? - still planning). I thinking about 4 options: OM-1 / OM-5 with handheld high res 50mp. I have all the glass I need, so I'd just need the body and batteries. Handheld high res does have some issues with things ghosting with movement that...

    Micro 4/3 Travel tripod recommendations

    I'm talking about an OS family holiday with an OM-1. I'd rather shoot hand held than take the Gitzo but a small tripod might be nice for the occasional macro or landscape. At this stage, I intend to take a 12-40 f2.8, 60mm macro and 17mm f1.8.

    Travel On the Road - Shots from the Car

    I have found that I really enjoy grabbing shots from inside the car, often while moving. Looking back on a lot of shots I have made, I think I used to be disappointed when viewing my car "grab shots" out the window later on, and seeing the inevitable motion blur, blurry bug splatter, or whatever...

    Some interesting points: This is supposedly the first replica of such garden based on Ancient Egyptian accounts and recent artifacts. The design is typical during the Middle Kingdom period (2040 BCE to 1782 BCE). Ancient Egyptians used the temples and gardens, such as this, as a meeting place...
