Sleeping Quarters

Well as scary as it looks this is going to be my home for two nights on my forthcoming stock trip.  The location I’m headed to is only reachable by boat.   100 more words


Monthly reflections - August 2015

Wow, that’s summer gone.  I do plan to write up the trip to Iceland from back in June, but waiting to see if there might be interest in that piece at a professional photography website and it can’t be published elsewhere first, so cross your fingers on that one. 240 more words

In the last of this series of mini-tests of OM Zuiko lenses on an A7R, the very humble 50mm f1.8 is under scrutiny this time. This one came ‘free’ with a second-hand OM2N a few years ago and until now hasn’t been used – my usual 50mm lens choice is my 50mm f1.4 which I’ve used for 34 years (a good investment!). 707 more words
