Wings Over France

I just happened to find these two pictures while working on something else and figured why not.  Shot on Canon SD1400 precursor to the mighty Canon 330HS.  Yes, I really was over France at the time.  You can see the French writing on the wings as it was an Air France flight.

Amsterdam – Deel Twee

If you aren’t Dutch that’s Amsterdam Part Two.  If you are Dutch sorry if I just butchered your language.  Blame Google Translate.  I am shocked and amazed at the people that liked the Amsterdam images I posted yesterday so I went through and found some more gems and this is it from them.  I did look at the EXIF data and found out the mighty camera used for these images; the Kodak EasyShare CX4230 with a massive 2mp sensor in it!

These images run from straight out of camera with some minor cleaning up to me going wild in Analog Efex and having some fun.  I didn’t have a lot to work with pixel wise but I did what I wanted and am pleased how they turned out.  Not bad for some pictures that are 11 years old and a hack photographer that really hasn’t gotten that much better over the years.

I found these while I was doing some work on a server and they were too awful not to share.  These were taken on some Kodak digital camera that I likely bought in 2002 and the images were shot in 2003.  I believe the megapixel count was like 2 or 3 when I saw it flash before me.  In those days I would just generally point the camera in a direction and just push the shutter.  Believe it or not I would never take pictures when I traveled.  Hated it and didn’t like lugging a camera around.  Hard to believe 11 years later I don’t leave the house without a camera bag.  I tried to edit these but it was pretty hopeless considering the files I was working with so I just tweaked them a bit to get something out of them and then ran them through DxO Filmpack and selected Kodak Porta 160VC color negative since it was a Kodak camera and went with it.  The border and watermark are higher res then the images but they are still fun to look at and that is what photography is about.  To my Mom who complained about never seeing the Amsterdam pictures here you go!

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 few days later and then did the tour.  I go back to my statement, seen one castle you have kinda seen them all.
