I’ve been spending a lot of time seriously reacquainting myself with my Sony rx100m2. This is an older camera at this point, but I’ve made a decision that I exclusively shoot black and white on it, and this is the camera that is (almost) always with me. I’m basically forcing myself to actually shoot black and white, as opposed to adding black and white filters to colour photos. It means some colour shots are probably “lost” but, at the same time, a whole pile of amazing shots (to my eye) are being captured because I’m learning a whole new way of seeing the world.
Below are some of the happier results of this experiment; I can definitely see a future where I print out a pile of these types of photos to put up around my office or home.
A friend of mine and I travelled into Toronto’s Canary district over the weekend to make some photos. Normally I take photos on solo walks, and it was a nice experience to be in the presence of someone else who was also focused on making images. Some of my highlights are below.
All images were shot using an Olympus E-M10ii and and Olympus M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 R and Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R Lens. They were edited using a combination of Apple Photos and Polar.
And one shot from the walk home!
More surveilance whakery. Gotta thank the republicans and democrats for taking away our privacy.
The second image is terrific!
This is why I’ve been away from the public Interwebz for the past bit. Friday, Friday, Friday!
And in this biology video, we see the white cells of your average packing box surround the intruder, with the effect of excising the hostile specimen from the otherwise healthy host organism/box. It’s amazing how organisms in nature develop extraordinary defences!
