Final Postcards from Italy

A few final photographs from my recent trip to Italy (I posted others last weekend). The image above is one of my favourites, and still makes me chuckle. I’d been standing there waiting for a moment and talking to friends. I’d made a comment about the need for photographers to remain observant and then the discussion  moved on to the …

May Desktop Wallpaper

In Travel, Wallpapers by David16 Comments

One evening in Camogli, Italy. Just my Fuji XE-1, a Lee Big Stopper and 3-Stop Grad on a tripod pointing at the horizon.  14mm @ f/11. 210 seconds. ISO 250. No significant adjustments in the digital darkroom. Just amazing light on amazing water. This is a downloadable desktop wallpaper and should look great on anything up to 30 inches. Enjoy. …

Postcards from Italy

Ciao! I rolled in from Italy a couple hours ago, set my photographs to begin the export process from my laptop to my iMac, unpacked, stocked the fridge and walked out for some much needed sushi. So good to be back home in Vancouver. No matter how often I go away, coming home is sweeter each time. Now I’m crashing …

We’re wrapping up the first week of the Italy Within The Frame. We’ve been on the Mediterranean for a week and now heading for Venice to begin one more week of great food, wine, and photography, all of which there is in abundance.  I’m not going to lie to you, it’s been rough. I’ve given myself new constraints on this …

Specifically, “Should you pay people for a photograph?” Or more personally, “Do I pay people for a photograph?” I’ve given various answers to this over the years. It’s not a simple question with a simple answer. And I won’t …

Hokkaido Steller’s Eagles

These mornings with the Steller Eagles were painfully early. We pried ourselves off our futons in order to be out the door around 4:30am, dressed for temperatures that felt much colder than the actual -15C, and lugging our largest lenses. We drove down to the port, not sure if we’d even be heading out, knowing too much ice would keep …

Hokkaido Whooper Swans

Since returning from Hokkaido it’s been a flurry of activity doing all those other things that fill our days so we can keep doing that thing we love – making photographs. That usually means I post a bunch of photographs immediately, and then nearly abandon you to posts about other things. I love those other things, and truthfully they’re what …
