I am thinking to create a series of Travel Postcards to be sold in sets. You would make your choice from a wider selection than the illustration below. These are just examples of what might be created. Watch This Space.
My Olympus 14-42mm lens has malfunctioned and gone back for repair under warranty. It was my go to lens for much of what I shot and so now I am playing with some old Pentax M42 glass. These beautiful old lenses give a different ‘colourscape’ to the images and I adjusted the WB to help emphasise this difference and produce this ‘filmic’ look, somewhat reminiscent of some of the old Kodak film stock. What do you think?
A stroll with my trusty Olympus OMD EM-10 mkii around the beautiful lands surrounding Wiston village, in the Southern Uplands of Scotland. Lockdown in January 2021 has its benefits here.
My Gallery of my favourite shots from India has 108 photos in it. The number 108 is significant for many cultures and many reasons. For example, there are said to be 108 energy lines, or nadis, converging to form the heart chakra. Marma points are like Chakras, or intersection of energy, with fewer converging energy lines. On Sri Yantra, the Marmas have 54 intersecting energy lines where three lines intersect. Each has feminine, or shakti, and masculine, or Shiva, qualities. 54 X 2 = 108. Therefore there are 108 points that define the human body and the Sri Yantra or the Yantra of Creation. The same rule is observed in the Sanskrit language, with its 54 letters, both representing the two genders and they are also called Shiva and Shakti respectively; again, 54 X 2= 108.

If you just want to look at the pictures, here they are 😉 What a trip <3
