Project 52: Week 43; Portrait – The Elderly

As you can probably tell from the amount I post on here the subject for this week’s 52 week project is a subject I do photograph a lot, although inexplicably I couldn’t find as many images as I thought I had. Anyway welcome to this edition which has the subject “Portrait – The Elderly”, and I’m going to post two images for this week as I couldn’t choose between them and because I wanted to put up an image of both of my Grandparents, and also because it’s my blog and I’ll do what I like so there. Also this means I can show both an image taken on film and one taken on digital, albeit both using Olympus cameras.

Street Photography – Cardiff Streets 21

Haven’t shared any of these for a while, it’s time for the, ahem “artistic” images taken on my Leica IIIc with Fomapan Classic 100. Yeah artistic rather than bleeding awful and out of focus sounds good doesn’t it? As usual taken on the streets of Cardiff (technically some in Penarth as well).

Project 52: Week 36; Artistic – Food

Week 36 of the 52 week project is food, a subject I really don’t like the idea of photographing, what with the whole “take a photo of your food” nonsense that seems to have permeated the world. So instead I’ve taken a photo from a street food event I went to recently and gone more for the artistic side of the brief with the limited lighting and use of shadow.

Street Photography – Olympus OM-D EM-5; 52

Some of you may be aware I visited Italy a few weeks ago, I turned thirty years old and really did not want to do that in the UK so a holiday to the country whose language I’ve been learning for a while seemed a good idea. Anyway while I was there I got the chance to do a little street photography, since being a tourist people practically ignore you snapping away with your camera, this post has a few of the images I took, there’ll be a lot more to come. As usual all taken on my Olympus OM-D Em-5 and either Panasonic Leica Summilux 25mm or M.Zuiko 17mm lenses.
