This weekend, Michael, a fellow photographer, went out to take photos of Spider Lilies. While we were out, we met a guy named Larry. Larry was new to photography and he and I started chatting about places to go shoot. He told me about the Lake Wylie Dam, in Fort Mill, SC, which is not very far from my house … about 15 minutes I found out … eventually. I’d never been to the dam before, so I asked for…

Last year, I had a nest of birds in the entryway to my house, right above the front door. At the end of the season, after the chicks fledged, I thought to remove the nest, but didn’t get around to it. This year, a new family discovered the nest, made some changes, and moved right in. It appears as if she only has one mouth to feed, but this guy is pretty hungry. He pretty much just camps outside of…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I remember that a few years ago, Lytro, then a startup, came out with a small camera that would allow you to take a picture, then interact with it to change the focus point. At the time I thought it was pretty interesting and innovative. Now, 3 years later, they’ve come out with a professional grade camera for about $1,600 USD. Obviously, they still believe in this technology: “We think that if you look at how pictures work today in…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They say: You never get a second chance to make a first impression; logically, I can say that this is true.

That comic book or sea shell you picked up on your vacation last year, you can leave that shit behind when you move. But a diary, a diary is something you hang on to. It’s…

Snitchin'

Well, that used to be a saying, but these days the slogan is “See something. Say something” ever since 9/11, The damn Patriot Act, and the constant barrage of fear heaped upon us daily through the news. Yesterday, I was at the post office. While I was waiting, I heard a “little old lady”, who was probably about 70 years old, talking to one of the postal employees: You know, I just saw a lady out there, in the parking…

Bag sized

There are plenty of jokes around about women who go shopping for shoes, but then when they get the shoes, need a new bag, clothes, and accessories to go along with them. I wonder if photographers are not similar. It seems like that I’m always in the market for a new bag, a specific bag, the right bag for the occasion. Now, since I have an Olympus E-M1 and an E-M5 AND I want to take both of them with…
