In about an hour, I will start my journey from my doorstep to the city of Brno, Czech Republic. Expect a couple of travel photographs, as I will be giving my new Fuji X-T1 a workout, whenever I get the chance (it is a work trip).
Brno is a gorgeous town with some great medieval structures, so I expect to get one or two chances to capture something special. The weather forecast is good and I have about a day to myself!
Here’s one that I captured yesterday with this little camera.
This is at the head of a local reservoir. This little building always reminded me of the game Myst.
This image is one that I captured about 3-1/2 years ago during a walk through the gardens of Gillette Castle in East Haddam, CT, which is a great site to visit year round. My eye was caught by the multitudinousness of the water lilies; to a degree, I found the view of this pond slightly less than tranquil, which gave me the idea of creating this image, where the eye will never rest.
I am curious to find out how you perceive this image… let me know!
Shot with a Canon 5D MkII using a 24-105 L lens. I pushed the shutter speed to about 1/3 second to be able to get the zoom blur at this level. As the camera was handheld, the tricky part was to ensure that something would stay still.
