Ok – here are some more photos I took in September:
And here’s a first photo from October:
And what was I listening to lately? Some wonderful music from Cuba:
Thanks for watching.
It all started with this:
But there’s more, like:
Or like this:
P.S.: of course, the last two of these strongly remind me of Bob Marley’s groundbreaking live album “Babylon by Bus” from 1978:
What a good time that was.
“I was driven beyond belief. I was driven to be accepted, to be respected. Without that drive, how are you ever going to do that? Rather, you’re going to go to a party and carry on with your life. In the end, I don’t think one gets ‘discovered’—rather, it happens for those individuals who fight to have their work seen.”
A very good article about one of the great and still living photographers, Nadav Kander, at LensCulture. Fair warning: contains some nude images, so maybe NSFW in/at/around your area.
Beginning of September, Zuleikha and her friend Nikoleta wanted to sell some old toys and stuff on a local flea market. Here are two photos I took on that day:
Other than that, I used my wide angle lens a lot. 14mm on a µ43rds camera is like 28mm used to be on film, and that’s commonly considered good for landscapes or cloudscapes like in the following example:
But you can even take portraits with a wide angle lens, like this one of Tuna:
A wide angle lens is also good to get some “perspective” on smaller things, like for instance this bird feeder:
The wind always throws (and blows) away that bird feeder from the wall, so I took it back in. This photo is from today, but with a 45mm lens instead of the wide angle:
Oh, and I’ve got a haircut this month. Here’s a photo – or rather two, mounted together as one – which Zuleikha took with the E-PL5 camera and the 14-42mm “kit” zoom lens:
Thanks kiddo, for the nice portrait!
And that’s all for the moment. But the month isn’t over yet…
Thanks for viewing.
Another one from today – Tuna the cat, dozing in the twilight:
Thanks for viewing.
Walter Becker, thanks for everything.
And this – this is the most talk I’ve ever heard from him. It’s called “The Making of Aja”, and it has Japanese subtitles:
You are missed, Walter. But still, rest in peace.
Walter Becker, Feb. 20 1950 — Sept. 03 2017
Edit: Just found this – and I think Walter would have laughed about it like I did:
No; 5-string basses still aren’t the thing for me, even if these are nice Fodera (and even signature) models like the ones from Richard Bona or Janek Gwizdala.
“A well focused 12 megapixel camera trumps a poorly focused 24 megapixel camera any day of the week. A photograph of a captivating subject taken with a camera that’s mediocre at high ISOs still beats another noise free image of a coffee cup in a coffee shot every time. Waiting for the perfect camera is a fool’s errand.”
by Kirk Tuck, professional photographer in Austin, Texas, U.S.A., in a blog post of his.
Thanks for reading.
Wow. Seven years ago already, but look and listen…
