Flickr a Day 199:’Green Houseboat’

Vibrant colors make this pic our Saturday pick. Ian D. Keating shot self-titled “Green Houseboat”, which is “accessible from the pier. Fisherman’s Wharf. Victoria, BC. Canada”, using the Olympus E-PM1 and M Zuiko Digital 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 lens. Vitals: f/9, ISO 200, 1/500 sec, 40mm. Because the date was modified, recently is best guess and most likely on July 2, 2015, when he uploaded the photo.

The Micro Four Thirds digital camera surprises me. I owned the Olympus PEN E-P1 and E-P2 way back, and I don’t recall rich colors like Ian gets. Who says you need an APS-C sensor on a compact to get dSLR image quality? Our shooter lives in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., and he joined Flickr in October 2008.
