No. We aren’t talking about those things you do right before attempting to smack your birthday pinata. We’re talking about dots on a screen. You see…. Cameras are never really in focus. You just can’t see well enough to know better. That pin-sharp dot of a star in the sky? That’s not in focus, it’s just a circle of least […]

I miss being in the woods. Not the tiny bamboo grove, or the little bit on the way up Takao, but the ‘Hey, be careful, there was a bear spotted on the trail earlier this morning.’ woods. While everyone was sleeping, I snuck out for a trip back to the lake, and took some photos. From the viewing area, it […]

There is only a limited number of times I am going to get to take a picture of Mt Fuji on Fujichrome with a Fujifilm camera. I need to appreciate the chances that I get at it. Both of these shots are from the same roll, on a trip up that mountain I always climb.

Is auto any good? Well…. hrm. I want to say no. I was raised in an era when automatic transmissions did their commuter thing, but manual transmissions – they did it better. I am told that that is no longer the case, that kludgy flappy-paddle shifters have given way to more and more high-tech automatic options. On my camera, I […]

I certainly wish they would build it. One of the things I really wish that Tokyo, and many major cities, would get around to is building the infrastructure to make bicycling safe. Tokyo Night Pedal Cruising is a thing – a slow ride across a piece of central Tokyo. It’s a community that comes together to enjoy being on bicycles […]

Sorry. I’ve been shooting a wedding for some friends out in Newfoundland, so I haven’t been as good at updating this web page as I normally am. Also, I now have a ton of photos to process, and my brother’s dag to pet. I’ll do my best~

I have a bit of  strong opinion on art – it has to say something. Banksy is amazing at this. When you look at his pieces, you’re never confused about what he’s saying. When you look at a Picasso, it might be a bit more complicated. Some of his work is immediately accessible and you can feel immediately what he […]
