BlackWhite Birds

The other day I was biking home from work and spotted two swans fairly close to shore. The lightning seemed perfect, but proved to be way to bright to shoot f/1.4, even with max shutter speed of 1/4000. So unfortunately I was unable achieve the beautiful bokeh that the Minolta 50mm is able to render.

Heron Silhouette

 

Today I was taking a walk, and spotted this Grey Heron by the lake.
I tried to get close to it, but it kept fleeing evertime i got close enough. Needless to say it is pretty hard to get an in-flight picture with a manual 50mm. lens.
heron-00968I don’t have the full EFIX data, as it was taken with a legacy lens. But what I do know is this: ISO: 400, speed: 3200/1. Camera: Sony NEX-6. Lens: Minolta MD 50mm. f/1.4.

Gloomy streetlight in Bruxelles (and some B/W’s)

 

So, I just stumbled over some photographs that I took in October on a weekend trip to Bruxelles. It is a beautiful city; gorgeous buildings and nice cafés. But be aware; they hate your credit card. You won’t be able to pay anything under 10€ with card, so you have to have cash, which sucks when you’re used to a “civilized” society that accepts your card even if you have to buy a 10 cent bubblegum…

Under the Bridge

“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.”
– Matt Hardy

So, I indicated yesterday that their might be a B/W photo in the works.
When I went for a walk this Sunday, I passed this freeway bridge that I thought would be perfect for an oldschool black & white photo.
