Glen Echo

I just acquired a 25mm 1.4 Vidicon  lens and wanted to play with it.  This is an adapted lens for my Olympus E-P2 that I paid $60 for.  I drive past Glen Echo Park every night going home and like the sign and it seemed a perfect place to play with the new lens.  I converted the image to black and white then used a mask to bring the colors out.  I also increased the background color to get the building to just appear.

Neon Glen Echo

Glen Echo Park shot with my new Olympus 45mm 1.8.  I shot it in aperture priority mode at 1.8.  There is a huge difference between a native lens on a camera and an adapted one.

Bee’s Eyes

Loved this photo.  It was a shot I didn’t remember taking of my friend Bee who was putting on makeup.  She posed quickly and I snapped the photo and promptly forgot about it.  I converted it to black and white and cleaned up her face a bit but the beauty is all Bee’s.

Englightenment

I shot this while I was in Thailand.  The place is called The Sanctuary of Truth.  It’s interesting to visit and nightmare to shoot as the lighting is either non-existent or flooded in from the outside.

Yellow at Night

Not completely happy with this photo.  Was shot at night with no flash and at a high ISO.  The little light I did have I tried to use to capture the water drops on the flowers.

Flowers From A Sweetheart

Was playing with a Konica 40mm 1.8 lens I acquired and put on my E-P2.  These were the flowers in the office that the persons partner sent her.

Colorful Eyes

Was supposed to be working but I had seen these wall art on the side of a building near where I worked so off I went to photograph it.  I liked the effect after I cropped it down.

Sad Angle

Arlington National Cemetery again.  If you live near the DC area I highly recommend a photo trip out there.  You may think it is creepy to be surrounded by dead bodies under your feat but it’s really a tranquil and peaceful place.  I have shot there several times now and the staff and visitors make it a pleasant place to just visit and shoot.

Gone But Not Forgotten

This rose was left on top of a sarcophagus at Arlington National Cemetery.  I used a 28mm 2.8 Macro lens on my E-P2 to get the shot.

Celtic Memories

This was just another marker in Arlington National Cemetery.  Just like the look of the cross.
