A black and white version of an image I posted on the the first day of Spring at my personal blog The gloomy nature of the weather seemed apropro of our current situation. I hope that this “Spring” leads to a better summer for everyone. Stay safe.

This is a five shot stitch from my Olympus OMD EM1 MkII and the Zuiko Pro f2.8 40-150mm zoom. The images were stitched in Photostitcher® and further processed in Stacker® and Snapseed®

A different point of view

I don’t know the name of the plant featured here (can anybody offer offer a name?), but usually I see them from below the leaves. Today, however, I was searching a bit of wetlands from a pedestrian bridge using my longest lens-the 40-150mm f2.8 zoom with a 1.4 teleconverter. This yielded a focal length of 210mm on micro four thirds or 420mm on full frame. I’m happy with the results hand held, and like the new view of the subject.

In honor of 4th of July

For me the 4th of July used to be a much more colorful and joyous day. I miss those times when things weren’t so dark, when our country was more hopeful.

Stone Bench

Come, sit with me

Under this cherry tree

The stone is hard and unforgiving

But there’s room for two.
