I’m not some armchair outdoorsman or researcher. I’ve been out in the elements my entire life and have seen things and experienced the unknown. I’ve travelled solo, thousands of miles, into some of the most isolated and rural areas where cellular service is nonexistent for days on end. The darkness of the desert has never spooked me and neither does the shadows that perk and stare at midday. I’m at peace in this world and I have walked a walk of experience that has given me the confidence to speak out…
Lensbaby Composer Pro With Sweet 35 Optic for Micro Four Thirds! – Superior Auto Service in #CedarCity, Utah.
So today, I created photographs using the Lensbaby Composer Pro for Micro Four Thirds with the Sweet 35 Optic; my primary tool and my new muse upon receiving it a few days ago. Lensbaby, out of Oregon is sending this one to me on loan to test and try and I LOVE IT! Lensbaby is a great company and these optics are specialty lenses that require a lot of creative vision and advanced experience from photographers. They are not for the faint-of-heart but the Sweet 35 optic seemed to work well with the Micro Four Thirds format and more than I was expecting. I’m looking forward to writing more about my experiences. Stay tuned.
Okay… I’m being overwhelmed with technological advances in photography from using an iPhone 4s to capture and post-process landscape images to using the iPhone to edit and print my DSLR and mirror less camera shots… Okay! I’m not going to give up my regular camera equipment anytime soon, but the iPhone apps are causing me to fall in love with photography all over again. It’s like a rebirth! So stay tuned. This photoblog is going to undergo a lot of different types of photography. I’m trying to post to Flickr, Instagam, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Not an easy feat. Also, this image was shot on a micro four thirds camera then edited with photoshop CS5 and then further processed with the frame using Lo-Mob on my iPhone 4s. I’m integrating my computer and iPhone using Dropbox. It’s pretty crazy. Photo title: Haunted Hallway -Historic Overland Hotel – Pioche, Nevada.
This is the historic Strater Motel in Durango, Colorado. Louis La’mour wrote some of his famous novels in a private room in this hotel.
Why don’t I just go hippie and screw all these worries; give up all my material possessions and hitch hike clear across America and then go to Hawaii, live in the jungle and throw everything to the wind!? Maybe go find a hippie girl who will just accept me the way I am. lol
Intestine Man Pictograph near Moab, Utah. This is one of the oldest rock art panels in the state known as the Barrier Canyon style of pictography. Other similar sites are found in the Canyonlands and Grand Canyon regions of the Southwest. These sites were left by a hunting and gathering culture referred to as the Western Archaic peoples.
This is the typical thing seen at all the tourist traps and trading posts all over the Southwest. Heck, I love the colors though and texture so I posted it to my photoblog!
