My cousin Dan emailed several old photos he recently obtained while vacationing in Maine. That’s me, probably age 11, but only a guess. The newspaper’s date isn’t visible. I don’t recall the photo or its taking but the shot must have been posed by either my father or uncle. I don’t read French. (Le Soleil was published out of Quebec City. This evening, a quick Web search left me wondering if the newspaper still exists.)
Leica X1 may be my main camera, but it doesn’t go with me everywhere. My cellular is ever-present, however. While still not enthralled with iPhone 4 as a camera, I must admit that it’s still capable […]
There is much interest in my Supergirl photos from San Diego Comic-Con 2010. I published the heavily cropped version of the pic above yesterday. Today, I did some quick editing so that the full-body image could be seen—again, because of the interest.
Three more days to go! Please follow the action at my Comic-Con 2010 Flickr set.
I am not that impressed with iPhone 4’s camera, whether measured by usability or output. The photos are okay, but nothing like what I’m used to getting from a Nokia handset. The iPhone 4 requires […]
Happy Independence Day! However, on July 3, 1776, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail: “The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha in the History of America. I am apt […]
In late April I purchased the Olympus PEN E-P2 micro four-thirds digital camera. I’m ready to start posting photos after resolving problems with a defective kit lens.
Apple has got nothing on American Apparel. The line for the rummage sale in San Diego on May 8, 2010, made an Apple new product launch line seem tiny indeed. Both companies have strong brands—and […]
Last night, while my wife and I walked in the neighborhood, I snapped a picture of the sign over the Barber of Seville shop. The barber there has cut hair for 50 years—30 in the […]
My wife and I went to San Diego’s Ocean Beach earlier today. Hey, it was sunny here in Southern California and good day to use my new Sigma DP2s. The camera captures rich detail and […]
Yesterday, I sat around a photography studio for about three hours, while my daughter had portfolio pics taken. This painting of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion intrigued me, in part because of the surroundings. I actually don’t […]
Over the weekend, I did some research on the Leica X1 compact digital camera, which is just now shipping. Digital Photogtaphy Review’s highly technical review gave the X1 mixed marks. I found Steve Huff’s X1 review to be much more interesting and useful—as it’s more real world. The amazing image above is the first taken by Steve using the X1; digital compacts simply don’t produce such detail.
