Took this shot this morning outside a Paris Cafe. I’ve been waiting since last June to buy a new camera but all the ones I want seem to be back ordered. Anyways, all to say that I haven’t taken as many pics lately as I’m frustrated with my current setup (thought I could handle no viewfinder but I can’t). Anyways, went out this morning and threw on a 75mm voigtlander onto my Nex 3. I bought the lens cause it was a good deal but I don’t use it much. But on the Nex it really seems to shine, and my hit rate is far better than with my Bessa film camera.
Back to the picture, I like the people in the background that you can’t quite make out, makes you linger and think about the picture a bit. Might have preferred if they weren’t quite so out of focus, but overall I’m pretty happy with the shot. Now if my new camera could just show up…
Well, it used to be called Photo of Week, but it seemed a bit misleading as the pictures weren’t always taken that week. Anyways, I like the new name so who cares?
I took this photo at Buttes Chaumont, a large park in the 19th arrondissment in Paris. This man made waterfall and cavern are always a great location for a photo, so I went with my NEX-3 and Holga lens attached. I was very excited on arrival to see this strange man at the base of the falls. He was madly sweeping back and forth in the water with a large stick, oblivious to anyone else in the cavern. I took a long exposure which not only blurred the water but gave him a ghostly effect. This combined with the Holga lens’ soft picture and vignette, gave an awesome picture indeed.
