Yearly Archives: 2008

Yesterday I took this image of these sad old fishing boats on the outskirts of Salen on the Isle of Mull. I have often passed them and wanted to photograph them, but the light has never been nice or I haven’t had the time. The light yesterday was OK, but not wonderful, and I had…

My dear friend Alison allowed me to do a portrait while staying on Mull. This is my first portrait since finishing my 100-portraits project and it felt great to be doing people pictures again. Alison’s expression is wonderfully enigmatic…

Today while walking with friends near Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, I took this picture of the Tobermory Lighthouse. It was interesting as sunset was approaching and the light would only strike the lighthouse directly in the morning. Behind me there were steep hills that ensured the lighthouse had no exciting light. This was…

  • Nice blog. I’ll definitely be back. All the best, Rory

I was travelling today and so didn’t really get a chance to take pictures and wasn’t too worried about it. A friend was cooking for us tonight though, and when she placed the freshly cut peppers under the filament spotlights, I leapt for my LX3 like a colour obsessive. ActuallyI am a colour obsessive! LX3…

She seems chuffed with the Lumix but she only got it yesterday so we’ll see how that one pans out.

    I agree dick, Amazon have it for just over 200 pounds. If the wide angle lens isn’t an important feature then that looks like a bargain. The optical viewfinder while basic, can be an absolute lifesaver in bright light. I have used the non-raw version the 10Mp G7 and have to say I loved it. Don’t you love the rotary dial.

  • Yes. I was particularly impressed by the amount you could do ‘in camera’. Have a look at this http://www.flickr.com/photos/dickedie/3131134269/ This has not been post processed in any way and is still ‘as shot’. I’m really looking forward to getting to grips with this over the next few weeks. I’m off to Jura tomorrow – have a great New Year.
