Only Halfway Here

As the pandemic slogs on, I am finding I am only halfway here, a living ghost, hoping life can resume.

Olympus 4T

I have added an Olympus OM-4T to the stable, and this image was taken with my Sigma 90mm/2.8 lens. I love the way this lens renders!

The Indoor World

Let’s face it: the light during winter is often rather dull and drab. Combine that with the need to stay close to home during the pandemic (and my ongoing back problems!) make looking for indoor subjects at home a good idea, so that is what I did yesterday afternoon. I’ll be doing more of this kind of thing this winter!

A Window of Light

Yesterday for a brief while in the morning there was dazzling sunshine, and it was like the forest at Taylor Creek Park woke up from a grey nap.

A Tree in Winter

Another image from my trip to the Scarborough Bluffs recently. The light was so flat I really had to crank up the contrast to get an image I liked.
