My best planning is no planning

I headed out to a nearby park to attempt some photography of details of nature. The bulk of the fall color had already passed peak and I wasn’t expecting much in the way of color, so I had black and white on my mind. Maybe some textures of dead leaves or a nice bare tree. Probably the one drawback was…

Photo-op spotting

I am one of those folks who try to have a camera with them at all times. I don’t mean I carry one into the grocery store but I generally throw one into the car when I’m heading out, you know, just in case. I’m always looking for photo-ops. This particular photo I spotted while driving in the city. My…

Shooting Autumn with a Leica M9

In this day of whiz-bang do everything cameras it is almost impossible to not be able to take any shot you want. Super intelligent auto focus settings can track whatever you please. Vari-angle touch screen LCD’s enable shooting from just about any angle. High Dynamic Range settings, in-camera focus stacking, and pixel shifting for increased resolution leave your imagination free…

The Faces of Randyland

I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted here and for that, if anyone noticed, I apologize. Though I haven’t been very creative for some time now, I have still been taking photographs throughout the time gone. Good or bad, interesting or not. Few things drive my photographic creativity in my daily life. I work in predominately…

Been a long time coming

I guess Christmas is over, LOL. Sorry for the looooong delay in posting. Life happens. With still not much to say, I will refresh this site with a couple new photos I recently shot at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC. Pictures of birds! Not my forte but, hey, they were willing subjects and it was fun for the moment. Shot…

Autumn details with X-Pro2

  With my veeeerrrry long time away from this blog I have been trying hard (OK, not that hard) to find some worthy shots to post. I know I make excuses all of the time about my lack of input but since my day job has been busier than ever and coupled with a lack of travel outside of my…

Finding color on Mount Wood with my X-Pro2

I know, I have been a lazy poster. I do have to thank my own self for not even remembering I even have this blog. As I have noted in the past, job one for owning a blog is content, content, content. Without continuing content you cannot expect to get readers. Heck, my own motto in the past was, “If…

Winter is winding down. Time to wind up!

Although it has been a relatively mild winter this year it was still winter nonetheless. Winter is my slow period for photography. Not because winter isn’t a great time for fantastic photos, it is, but it’s just not a great time for me. As I mentioned here before I do have a day job, which means I am out and…

Right light, wrong place

    I live in a rundown town. I’ve mentioned quite a few times on this blog how I don’t live in a particularly photogenic place. I live in a small town in Pennsylvania that had its day a number of years ago. Once the steel and glass industry disappeared the town began to fade, not unlike most rust belt…

Hey that’s not a nature camera! Shooting trees with my Fujifilm X-Pro2.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a fantastic camera and the more I use it the more I like using it. But the XP2 is clearly marketed towards street and typical “rangefinder” type users. A modern Leica, if you will. And I purchased the camera to use it as such. I wanted a “rangefinder” style camera so I would purposely stick to…
