La playa - such a pure image. I love the ocean and the beach so much - this is a distillation for me.
If anyone thinks that the Olympus E-P1 and its "kit lens" are not good enough, they're clearly incapable.
A really lovely pristine view of the beach. Many thanks.

Thank you, BB. Here's another one from the same set. Same camera and lens.

I browsed through my Winogrand book tonight. Long, intense day and looking at photographs was good therapy. I really like his vision. It made me think... so many photographs taken today and yet which ones would stand the test of time? It is a question that has been on my mind lately, and one reason why I recently purchased several used, older photography books. To understand what makes a good photograph, one that will be looked upon from history. Not that that is my goal, but I want to both understand and improve my own work.
As I considered the Winogrand pictures, each one looked both banal and yet also interesting and unique. There was something about each image that made it memorable, or at least worth a passing glance. And yes, I appreciated his unique perspective, his leaning frame. He had a portfolio from the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, which is funny because I grew up there and went every year. Not much has changed since his day, though I have not been in decades. How he caught the people and the scenes captured it for me.
So many photobooks, so little time. But thanks again. Your comments have me re-looking at my work, or at least the photographs from that day, and collecting a similar portfolio of it and sharing with family. It was my daughter's second birthday, thus the bouncy house.

"Joe Cool" a miraculously good drummer from Malaysia. Took this image today 100% crop, straight out of cam setting ... with an X1

Once I clicked on that shot of "Joe Cool" I have to say that I was very impressed by the detail and reflections - great black and white tones, too!

Today in Bavaria we had sun, rain, storm, dark skies and blue skies ..... all at the same time. Took this from the balcony.

Glorious! If I had a view like that I'd be very no matter what the weather. Truly breathtaking, Jan. Thank you.

EP2 with 4/3 Olympus 50mm macro lens via adapter. This lens rarely comes off the EP2 and it autofocuses too!

:jacobin:pigeon:, Wow, what perfect lighting, background and forms. Was this shot with studio lights?
