The Grand Palace

The Grand Palace

Shot was taken outside the Grand Palace in Bangkok.  Shot on the faithful but sold Canon XSi with the faithful Tamron 18-200 (still with me but welded to a Canon 400D).  There was a storm approaching which is why the sky is so dark but it held off all day until I got back to my hotel  I remember crossing the Chao Phraya in the barges going back and forth in the various districts within Bangkok to get to the…

Electric Eye

Electric Eye

Apologies to Judas Priest and the metal god Rob Halford and points to anyone who figure that out.  Random shot from the mall as I leaned over the rail and pressed the shutter button.  Not that inspring I realize but I like how you can really see the details in the image which make it interesting.  I also named this photo electric eye because when you are in public you are on camera about 80% of the time and never realize it.  The same…

The Church

The Church

My sharpening issues have been resolved as I finally found the correct amount of pixel radius to sharpen the Panasonic LX 7 images up.  This picture is a direct result of the new-found formula.  I drive past this church almost everyday going to and from work and its one of the few around with a true steeple and they light it up at night which makes it interesting.  So I pulled into the lot with the LX 7 set it…

Escalate Me

Escalate Me

Apologies to U2 and points to you if you understand the reference.  Since the temperature was 20 fahrenheit or -6 celsius yesterday and I had a haircut scheduled I may have had a new camera to test out.  Not that I will admit to buying one or anything, but a Panasonic LX7 may have shown up in a brown box at work with my name on it.  I prefer to think of it as a late Christmas gift from someone anonymous or someone who…

A View From Outside The Castle

A View From Outside The Castle

This is the view from outside the castle.  Really what you are seeing is the cathedral that is located within the castle walls.   That was the biggest structure within the palace walls so it tended to dominate the castle view if you were shooting the castle from the outside.  I ended up going to the castle twice as the first time we got lost on the metro system in Prague and got there late so we went back a…

A View From A Castle

A View From A Castle

I shot this off Prague Castle when I was in Prague.  I wasn’t really inspired or impressed by Prague as I have been to Europe before and honestly, once you have seen one European Capital you have kinda seen them all.  So most of my shots reflect the fact that I was mostly bored while I was there shooting.  I would just leave the camera in Auto or AP mode and walk around and shoot.  I don’t think I ever…

The Capitol

The Capitol

This was shot in a long time ago it feels like and it shows it.  No matter how much post processing I did I could not remove all the noise from the image and in this case, I can blame the gear.  I shot this on my first DSLR ever, the Canon XSi (sold in the great Canon Purge) which wasn’t a low light performer in the best of cases.  It didn’t help that I shot this at night without…

Abuela

Abuela

This is another one shot on the gone but not forgotten Olympus E-P2.  I was buying coffee in the Mercado Central which is pretty much a locals only place and this lady was buying her supply as well.  She saw I had the camera and asked me to take a picture of her.  So I obliged her and this is the end result.  At the time I only had the 17mm and the 14-42 kit lens.  I don’t do zoom…
