Marcy and her G-9

My wife Marcy, very talented in her own right, gets outstanding results with her Canon G-9. Of course the camera doesn't take the photo. I'm only using this as an example that in the hands of a competent photographer any camera can rise to the occasion. These two silhouettes shot in Juniper Valley Park in Queens, prove my statement. I wish she shot more photos.

Cape Cod

These are country views near sandwich, in Cape Cod. Late day creates a more interesting light.
The camera was the  Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 with an Olympus zoom.

Happy Birthday America


Tuscan hiilside at dusk

It's the light and the time of day twhen it all comes together creates wonderful images. This is a silhouette shot of a Tuscan hill with all the all the typical buildings that scrape the sky thus giving that unique Tuscan mystique. One photo is enough in this case.

Now with full HD video

Canon Releases the  successor to the 60D: The EOS 70D dSLR

Canon_70D_EFS18-135_IS_STM_BGE14.jpgCanon has done it again with the release of the EOS 70D dSLR. After a long wait  for the replacement of the 60D for almost 3 years,  Canon has finally delivered with a feature packed camera that is sure to please both amateurs and professionals alike.  It used to be that cameras were introduced in 10 years intervals but we digress. While Canon stated that the 70D has received  "incremental improvements",  these new additions are very significant when you consider where this camera is positioned, and priced in the EOS line-up.
One on a budget can avoid the amateurish Rebel line and get HD video on a better body.

This window shot made on a winter day shows why when a photo works, only one is necessary for the post. I really like this photo made with the Micro Nikkor 50mm F 1:2.8 mounted on the Fuji S2-Pro. I hope you agree with me.

Burano revisited




No trip to Venice is complete without a vaporetto trip to Murano and then Burano. While Murano is famous for it's glass making and shops, Burano is well known for its colorful homes that are painted in very bright colors.

Castellammare del Golfo. the castle

There's nothing like dramatic light to make a photo come out and grab you. Shot on a February day that promised all sorts of variables. it actually hailed soon after i took the shots, the sun was playing hide and seek and was very specular; hence the dramatic shots.
