The photos presented here are not meant to be a wonderful work of art, more matter of fact presentation. We were heading into Londons Piccadilly area to see a contemporary tap dancing show (think Michel Flatley with a twist) which on reflection was quite good.
I’m generally an early bird, staggering into the kitchen to make a cuppa this morning (Saturday 7th Sept) a quick glance out of the window….I was faced with a difficult decision – tea or photo ? – I threw some clothes on and grabbed the Z6. The morning air was fresh, subtle hues of the early morning light contrast with the almost razor sharp black line of the horizon fed the photo addiction for another week.
I don’t normally explain the background to my photos as some of it rather obvious and to be honest if you have to explain everything then the image has not conveyed its message to the viewer. Getting ready to knock off some ironing in the spare bedroom this morning. The light from the window was casting the white rectangle behind me, so I started to play.
Background. Recently I have been listening to some Max Richter music in particular “Sleep” the Path 5 (delta) track is a quite an enchanting. Coming back from a quick shopping trip, as I approached our flat I could see next doors vine like plant leaves starting to decay. This got me thinking it’s the 29th of August and autumn is around the corner, for some the process has already begun. The three fellows above have done their duty.

As you can see from the above images there is a significant difference in the amount of fall off / area in focus. This is one of the amazing attributes of the EM1X camera. In part it’s down to the incredible image stabilisation built into the camera and the 12/100 f4 lens, plus the focus bracketing / stacking capabilities of the camera. Personally I like both one is soft and slightly dreamy the other is more matter of fact.
