Today is the ten year anniversary of FisheyeFarm blog. I am pleased at my reflection. Why not? The above photos are profile shots of friends from Facebook. I have my camera in my hand if I go to answer the door. One thing has led to another. My life unfolds. Work with what you have. Do your best. (that varies) People first – Money second / Don’t worry – Be happy
This is one of my favorites. Shot with an Olympus Tough, using an 18mm, wide angle lens. I am inside a one-time, customary beach lodging, in Costa Rica. On the right is a clay oven. The smoke is rising through a roof ventilation.
I have painted, capturing light.
This particular camera was my constant companion for years. It cost 600 dollars, and the wide angle was another 100. You can swim with this camera. You can drop it and it won’t break. That’s part of their advertisement, and I can atest to the validity of that statement.
They say, it works well in snow. I don’t know, I haven’t been in snow in years. But everything touted about this camera, I found to be accurate.
My camera and lens are now retired. And I am proud to say, I wore it out.
I see this is a cheaper price than what I paid. Mind was Tough – 2. But that’s the way it goes.
Also, I don’t believe my Tough had RAW option. But, back then it wouldn’t have helped, because I didn’t know what RAW was and did not use Light Room.
If you want to travel with a versatile camera; a one pony of many tricks, this is it.
It’s also great for street photography. However, when choosing a camera color or a wrist attachment, it’s always best to go black.
My camera was black, with a red wrist, float attachment for when I was in the water.
In my photography life, “you can’t have it all.”
But don’t let that stop you.
Get the shot!
A little bit older than the crowd, but I got my waves. It was a good day at Playa Avellanas. It started out with some wind on it, so the majority of the people left, the sun came out and it cleaned up. I love it when that happens. It has been a week since I had been in the water.
My guage of a good wave. When I realize I’m smiling from ear to ear. That’s why I surf.
