    David DuChemin gets about. One moment off in the extremes and glacial beauty of the antarctic and the next  hot air ballooning over the African savannah. Read about his latest adventures here. On a different note, my previous post, Mirror Image, contained a photo that I’d submitted to the Pentax...

    Seeing the unusual in the usual is phrase nobody has probably said, but I offer it here for the world to adopt. It’s something I said in a previous post (its always worth saying it twice), about how photography can be a frustrating business, seeing others’ work of the darkest reaches...

    A rare occurrence in the UK, the Aurora Borealis seen in Scotland and the north east. You can see a slides how of images on this Guardian link. As Fox Mulder used to say…keep watching the skies… Northern Lights
  4. A zen walk in the woods

    This morning I took a walk in the woods and didn’t find much. No deer, no fields of bluebells or snowdrops or mushrooms to entice the macro lens out of the bag and pretty flat light. Nice walk, but left feeling a little frustrated about not being inspired to take...

    Stumbled upon another photo site, called 500px, via flipboard app on the iPad, which collects links and feeds from other sites. Here are a couple of images picked from the site with the photographers credit on images. The quality of images is extremely high, which makes me think many of...

    2.57 from Paddington, bound for Oxford. These shots taken with NEX 5N & M-Rokkor 40mm – my first shots, and taken from the comfort of the train. Had fun experimenting with aperture to vary the degree of motion blur. Considering this is through a murky window, at an angle, at...
  8. Nex 5N with Minolta M-Rokkor 40mm f2

    Comment
    In a continuing search for the perfect small set up, I give you the Sony NEX 5N & Minolta M-Rokkor 40mm f2 combination. I’m using a KIWIfotos lens adaptor, which seem very well made and much cheaper than the critics ultimate choice of NOVOFLEX. The M-Rokkor was designed for the...
  9. Say it with bullets…

    Another wacky find on Retronaut website – guns for Christmas! It’s amazing what you could sell and to who in the fifties. These days, it would be nothing so tame as a single action rifle, but more an AK-47, or some uber cool handgun like a ceramic Glock, poking out...
