Blenheim Palace

I’ve been in the UK for the last couple of weeks visiting family and saying goodbye to my father who passed away.

Whilst there I visited a few places one of which is Blenheim Palace  which is a large country house situated in Woodstock, Oxfordshire and  is the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough.   Continue reading “Blenheim Palace”

I must further apologise for my lack in posting; travel always gets in the way; I should be back to regular posting again now.

Found this old Cadillac from the 50s recently in my storage facility.  Looks to be in good (nice unrestored) condition and was ready to roll with picnic baskets in the back.

Angeles National Forest again

Pen-F Digital

Landscape week #1

As the Angeles National Forest is now barely a 15 minute drive from my house, I decided to take the Pen-F digital out for some landscapes – it seems rude not to when these views are so close

Coming soon…

Apologies for not much activity this week, as well as the house move I have also had a family loss.

I have some catching up to do later as many photography related things are going on.

I have several cameras to try and post about;

  • Polaroid Colorpack II (thanks Jim at Down the Road)
  • Contax III
  • Pentacon FM (Contax FM)
  • Zeis Ikon Voigtlander 500SE
  • Ricoh 35 ZF

I have a set of macro bellows to play with.

I have some projects I’d like to start on.

Also Thanks to Jim at Down the Road I have been linked to from Petapixel.

So please bare with me and I will be posting some of the above and more soon.

Do I have GAS?

What’s the difference between a collector and someone who has GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome)?

Lately I have been constantly on the lookout for a camera or lens or something that I haven’t got and suddenly need.  I have cameras that I need to do something with and haven’t, yet I have already acquired another three cameras since I posted about the cameras I need.

Maybe this is getting out of hand.   Continue reading “Do I have GAS?”

Mirrored sky

I took this at the Palace of Versailles in France a year or so ago.  It was part of an art installation there at the time and is a huge 20 foot round concave mirror reflecting the sky and depending on the angle the palace itself (you can just see some of the palace on the top edge).  I makes for an interesting shot as though I have copy and pasted another piece of sky into the picture upside down.

Danger! – Weekly Photo Challenge

I took this a while ago on a hike near the Hollywood sign; nearly stepped on it as my eye was stuck to the viewfinder of my camera.  Luckily my daughter was paying attention and alerted me to the little critter.

Photography can be a dangerous pastime.
