Epiphany 2013

Yard Sale
Epiphany can be grand, or it can be personal. Today, for me, it was a personal experience. Today I had a sudden realization that I could produce, with ease, the kind of photography I've been struggling to produce for some time now, and with the cameras I already have. All I had to do was relax and enjoy the moments. And the best way to enjoy the moment is to ignore the fear of negative critical reception. In other words, don't worry about what others may say.

That last bit of advice is hard to follow. In the hyper-connected, hyper-critical world of internet photography, it's hard to ignore the self-appointed critics, especially if they're out to troll you and everyone else they come across. That bit of advice, while certainly easy enough to state, is always difficult to follow.

Today I drove back up to Renninger's Antiques in Mt. Dora to look around and say hello to Pincus the Scotty again. While there I used both the E-PL2 and the 45mm as well as the E-PL1 and the Leica 25mm. And I had a grand old time using both.

I used the Olympus E-PL1 with the Panasonic Leica 25mm and E-PL2 with the M.Zuiko 45mm. Post processing was lightly done in Lightroom 4.3 and Silver Efex Pro 2.

Follow your own muse and be willing to fail.

Coincidentally enough this makes post 1,400, or at least that's what Google says.


  1. I really like the bike basket with the dried flowers.

    1. Thank you. It was the toughest to post-process, and I'm still not sure it has the final look I want. I need to print it and look at it on a wall; digital never looks quite right for me, even on a calibrated monitor.
