Saturday Travels

On the road again

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.

Tranquil Day

This is at the head of a local reservoir.  This little building always reminded me of the game Myst.

Searching for Tranquility

A bit of an eye twister

Searching for tranquility

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!

Technical Details

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.
