Waddesdon Manor

In mid-September (I know, I know, I’ve been lazy) I visited Waddesdon Manor. It’s a mansion built by the Rotshchilds (who made their money as bankers to various royal figures) in the last quarter of the 19th century. Ferdinand de Rothschild basically wanted a party house near-ish London, found land, built a Renaissance-style ch√Ęteau. I mean, what’s one to do in one’s spare time? And chicks love mansions. On this little outing I was trying to get my mind back into photography, and as it happens it’s only after that I realise what would have been ideal images. But it’s all part of the process.

Toronto FanExpo Pictures (2014)

So decided to take a stroll into the Totonto FanExpo today with a couple of friends. Decided to take some pictures along the way. It was… uncomfortably busy. Everything was a fight and the main building’s HVAC couldn’t handle the volume of people walking in drenched from a torrential downpour. Not good.

 

Was a worthwhile experience, though.

 

Naturally, if anyone wants any of these pictures, just send me an e-mail.

Trans-Labrador Highway on Motorcycle

So, it’s done. This is my “there and back again” post. I did this trip between August 17 and August 30, 2012. My motorcycle is a 2008 Honda XL1000VA Varadero. A 6000km solo trip.

Note, I had a lot of trouble with my regular picture service/program when posting the images. As a result they’re just straight pictures, I apologize for the clumsy layout. Where applicable the mouse-over on a picture will bring up some thoughts on the picture.

DSLR Talk

The novice photographer often feels as though the most important thing about taking pictures is the camera they get. This often starts with a budget and, once this is established, the most expensive body is then acquired. The lens(es) that will come as part of a kit are… well. They’re bundled for super cheap for a reason. They’re super cheap, at least compared to other lenses that are available. Upgrading a lens will make a newbie realise how important good lenses are. They can often make you feel like you just bought a new body.

The cameras and the kit lenses with which they are bundled work. They take very nice pictures. But they’re subject to very notable limitations. After learning some things the hard way, and after having done quite a bit of reading, I decided to share what I’ve learned in one post.

Hullo!

 

*random high five*

Sorry for the radio silence. Work has been insane. Travelling, regular 15-hour days and weekends… (blahblahblah). But I’ve not forgotten about you.
