It’s been a while since I last wrote here…
Since the announcement of the new Olympus 45mm lens, I have been thinking about it non-stop. The focal length of 45mm is little long, with equivalent field of view being 90mm on the 35mm format. Surely, some would find this range quite restrictive for everyday use, or general shooting. I used to be one of them,, but after a while I got pretty much used to it.
As you can see i’s got the well regarded Olympus color signature.
It is all about the bokeh!
I believe the Olympus Grainy Film mode is more than just a fancy effect. This mode is like having a roll of Neopan 1600 at your fingertips. It has the punch, the contrast, the look, the feel of using a vintage black and white film. It’s a great tool to learn about the impact of light, shadow and texture.
No words. It’s a photoblog after all.
It was an ordinary weekday when we decided to meet. We talked and talked and talked, had plenty of catching up with each other, and laughed like we had the chance to meet every day in the last three years. Great wine and great company, I could not have asked for a better way to spend my Monday night.
Today I decided to just bring the PEN and the kit lens. I think it will be my main camera for street shooting from now onwards.

As you guys may know Micro Four Thirds cameras are quite the rage as of late, with the ability to have a small form factor while delivering decent image quality. As a plus they are lightweight, discrete, quiet, so it’s easier to keep a low profile while shooting. You’re almost invisible.
I couldn’t have taken these pictures with a bulky DSLR without being noticed and ruining spontaneity of the photos.

I’ve been wanting to create a blog for a long time, but I’ve never got round to it until now. While I have really enjoyed sharing photos on sites like Facebook and Flickr, I’ve created this blog mainly for myself; to help me keep track of the progress that I make over time and give the fruits of my hobby a new place.
