This is usually an end of year type of post for me, but this year, I feel like now is the time to focus on a clearer discussion around business issues and technology trends, and to tie several topics together,... Continue reading

I suppose I should have just called the series a visit to Ireland in the Summer of 2015, but I'm already committed to the hiking name. Well, the 1st post covered a selection of pics from the hiking portion of the trip, so for this post I'll share some from... Continue reading

My Summer trip this year was a visit to Cork, Ireland and an eight day hiking trip on one of the many Irish trails, this one called Sheep's Head Way. I was accompanied by my two teenage daughters. From a photographic perspective the trip posed a bit of a challenge... Continue reading

If you've read / checked out some of my previous posts you may have noticed a trend. Over the last couple of years I am shooting more film and less and less digital. It didn't really start out as a "plan", but more of an exercise to remember what it... Continue reading

I set this shoot up a few weeks ago to show texture and the subtle way light plays off fabric. I used my Hasselblad 501CM and Zeiss T* CF 2.8/80mm with an 8mm extension tube. I planned to shoot and/or convert everything to black and white and used 2 films,... Continue reading

I love TLRs, have since I was a teenager with my 1st Yashica Mat. Rollei has always IMO made if not the best, one of the two best, TLRs. I'm a Mamiya fan for some of their medium format cameras, particularly the Mamiya 6 and 7, but I never really... Continue reading

One of my favorite subjects is street performers and I guess the number of shots that revolve around them in my catalog would attest to that fact. I asked one of my daughters the other day what she thought I could do as an interesting series on the blog, and... Continue reading

Many years ago I owned and shot with a V System Hasselblad camera, and found that it was a very special and unique system. The lenses, Carl Zeiss C, CF and CFi are fantastic quality and have a very clear and unusual signature, much like the Leica lens family that... Continue reading

The term digital transformation is really popular in tech circles these days. I’ve used it myself over the past year or so, and I definitely think that the concept is sound. I have noticed though, that when I talk to... Continue reading

I went by the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention yesterday and walked around for awhile. There were some really talented artists there as usual, and of course the people watching was entertaining as well. Here are a few shots, all taken with the Sony A7R and converted to black and white... Continue reading

I set up a fun project a few weeks ago using one of my medium format film cameras and a macro lens. Everything was shot on the Mamiya 645 Pro TL with a Mamiya-Sekor 4/80mm C Macro lens. All of the shots were shot on Ilford Pan f plus 50... Continue reading

If you follow what I shoot at all you know I'm really most inclined to shoot in or convert to black and white. For street I think it's really the most effective way to tell simple stories. For landscapes and cityscapes though, it's something else, and with the right subjects... Continue reading

It’s that time of new year when you get deluged with analysts / bloggers predictions and prognostications. I join in most years, and of course there’s the IDC predictions process to contend with as well. This year I swore that... Continue reading

2014 will go down as the year of the major corporate hack. It happened in retail, in banking, in entertainment, in government and probably in many other places that never went public. Personally I have had new debit cards issued... Continue reading

While in London recently I found the time to take a trip out to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, something that has long been on my list of things to do. It's a very interesting site for several reasons, including the Prime Meridian and Observatory, the Maritime Museum, the Cutty... Continue reading

Sounds like the title for some introspective post, but never fear, what I mean is using water as a reflective surface in landscapes. Here are a few shots that take advantage of some pretty dramatic sky / clouds. Camera: Leica M Type 240 Lens: Leica Summilux-M 1.4/35mm ASPH FLE Details:... Continue reading
