“In 2003, I carried a plastic Holga camera with me for about 8 months during my travels. What began as a simple diversion became a sort of therapy and exercise in seeing. Because of the limitations of the camera, I was unable to precisely control composition and exposure. The camera leaked light causing color shifts and quite unexpected results. Photography with this camera became more about the act of making a picture rather then the picture itself, and I experimented with making only one picture of any given situation. Instinct and reflex were the only guiding principles in making the pictures. The result was pictures that were not ”about” anything at all but were still, in their way, “true”. Thus the title, Nonfiction.”
Ran into a crowd surrounding a boxing ring in front of a church last Friday.
David Eaves: “A closed border is like a closed mind - over time you become less receptive to new ideas or information and begin to atrophy.”
Canon 5D body
The 5D has a ‘full-frame’ digital sensor the same size as a 35mm film frame. The sensor has excellent low-light performance with very little noise even at high ISO settings.
A protective plastic film has been on the rear LCD screen from the first day I used the camera—the LCD screen is scratch-free!
Canon EF 17–40mm f/4 L USM
Great lens for wide-angle landscape and architecture photography. Excellent build-quality.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
One of my favorite lenses…excellent performance wide-open, beautiful bokeh, beautiful price! You can photograph at night without a flash with this one!
A tractor bent a couple of metal poles across the FR3 train line in Bracciano this morning. People who wish to go to Rome are unhappy.
