Leaves in the stairs

Leaves on the stairs at Douglas College in New Westminster, BC - November 11th, 2010

This was during the "Vancouver 4/3 photowalk".

I was trying that fancy 70mm f2.8 from a Pentax Auto 110 camera that Eric lent me and as soon as I put it on the camera I saw this.

On Flickr

I started posting my photo to my Flickr photostream. The main motivation for this is the community aspect, the one where you get people together around the same interests and sharing pictures. The other is that I have been meaning to write my own gallery software but I have never found the time or motivation to actually do it - no of the one I have found did inspire me either.

I'll continue to host my pictures myself as well. Two is better than one. And maybe one day I'll have that gallery software written.

I have added a little "flickr" link on all the photos I posted here since 2009 so that one can view them on Flickr.

Stella lazing

I was about to write a rant about the disappearence of viewfinders on compact cameras, but this will be less of a rant and for later. Today, after trawling the internet for the answer concerning a camera that would be versatile and more compact than my DSLR, I went tried and bought an Olympus E-P1.

"Traditional" first picture:

My first shot with the Olympus E-P1. Stella, my Boston Terrier, lazing on the couch. If the dog can not come to you, come to the dog. - November 6th 2010
