Kayak Updates

Kayak season is once again over; the leaves are down, the temperatures are down with them, and we’ve already had a dusting of snow.  Pretty soon the lakes will freeze over and I’ll be walking across them where only a few months before I was paddling. My ‘yaks are stored in the garage for the […]


Gear, Gear, Gear

I’ve seen a couple of announcements on the web in the past week or so stating that the OM-D E-M5 is finally going out of production.  I don’t find this surprising, as it’s now an older model camera that was superseded by the E-M1 a while ago; at the time I thought it was interesting […]


Notes on current lenses

I’ve been paying attention to which lenses I’ve been using the past couple of months, since I started shooting regularly again.  And no real surprise, it comes down to just one: the Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 (which for those of you worried about relative focal lengths, is the m4:3 version of the venerable 70-200mm).  I’ve been […]


A few quick thoughts on the new OM-D E-M1

This is hardly new news, but I wanted to share a few quick thoughts on the newly announced Olympus OM-D E-M1. The short version is: I won’t be buying one. So there, if that’s all you were wondering, you can move on to the next post. If you’re looking for a few more details, however, […]


If I could only use one lens…

…it’d be the Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4.  Of course statements like that are kind of stupid, since no one lens is going to be perfect in every single situation and a 25mm wouldn’t be all too helpful when, say, trying to photograph eagles up on the Plank next winter.  But as a general feeling it […]


The Goldilocks Dilemma

A couple of weeks back I caved and ordered a new photo bag. The problem was that my little Domke F-10 was just a little too small – perfect for one body and 1-2 extra lenses, but nothing more. And my canvas messenger bag and BBP insert was a little too big – great for […]


Photoshop CS6

I finally gave in and upgraded to Photoshop CS6. It’s been installed for about two weeks now and I’m slowly becoming more comfortable with it. It’s funny, since it’s essentially the same program, just updated and re-designed, but each time a I move up to a new version, I feel like I’m all thumbs for […]


A new ship

The search – and research – is finally over and I’m the proud owner of a brand new kayak! I came home earlier this week with a Wilderness Systems Ride 115 and have already gotten everything ready so that I can take it out over the weekend. Turns out the Ride wasn’t even one of […]


Spring birding with the Olympus 75-300mm

It’s taken six months, but I’ve finally been able to take the Olympus m.Zuiko 75-300mm into the field for some solid birding work. It’s the first good evaluation I’ve been able to make of it under these conditions; birding was the main reason I bought it, but my timing was off, with it arriving at […]


Thoughts on a few photography books

I have always been a voracious reader of books – loved them as a kid and still do today.  Bookstores are some of my favorite places in the world – real bookstores, that is, which means the smaller, quainter ones that actually have character.  B&N, BAM, Borders, and the like do not count. Photography meshes […]
