one thousand and one posts

time flies like an arrow and fruit flies like a banana…  today i was notified  by wordpress that i had made my 1000th post on .documenting.the.obvious.

so this is my 1001st post! 

i wanted to celebrate this a little bit with a wee glimpse into the archive of the last five years  – i hope you enjoy it.

silence of the lamp

silence of the lamp

shot while visiting family last week. i think i will include it in the lamp post series anyway :)

for the technically inclined: this is the first post here with the panasonic gm-1. a camera that would be a very big camera if smallness was bigness. i haven’t had many shooting opportunities yet, but the size and the irresistible silence of the camera (the camera would be very loud if … you get it) were really appealing to me. i’m curious as to how much the missing image stabilization will affect my shooting. i’m guessing it might probably not be worse than the shutter shock issue the e-p5 exhibits at unappropriate moments and surely more predictive. regarding ergonomics the e-p5 of course blows the little marble marvel out of the water but coming from a point and shoot (lx-3) and considering my typical shooting style this won’t get in the way too much.

saddle, shoes

shoes and saddle

… and the nozzle of a watering can (yes, and bricks and a baby plane and a sock).

seen in wedding again. there’s apparently always something photogenic when i visit this backyard.
