For this week’s photo challenge I’ve decided to submit this random photo from my camera trial. What do you think would does she wish for?
For this week’s photo challenge, I’ve decided not only to upload a couple of photos, but also to try wordpress web-interface for making posts instead of my personal favorite Live Writer. As of now, it looks like I might be able to manage, but let’s see … Don’t be too strict, please … 🙂
So, back to the content itself, here are a couple of photos from our fishing trip last weekend. Obviously, no fish was harmed, as there is literally no chance to catch any in Finland, but at least it was fun to spend some time with our kids.
For this week’s Photo Challenge, I’ve decided to go to archives and post a photo that I took a year ago at our local amusement park during fireworks.
The quality is not the best possible, as original raw image was lost during the sickness on my laptop. 🙂 Always make backups … But that is another story … 🙂 Have a great day!
Finally, I’ve gotten my beloved 50mm 1.8 back. Here is the result of giving it a very quick spin at our yard taking portrait of my daughter. Really awesome lens and perhaps one of my favorites these days.
Quite possibly we will visit local amusement park next weekend and I would do some street photos there, though the weather forecast doesn’t seem to be really promising. 🙂 So, let’s see.
Camera setup: Canon EOS 1100D (yes, I still haven’t upgraded it yet!) + 50mm @ 1.8. ISO: 100, Exposure: 1/1580. Some color correction (contrast + brightness + blacks) was done in RawTherapee + size reduction for blog in FastStone.
Finally I had some time to go through the photos from Swedish Air Force Museum and especially from DC-3 exhibition. Which, to me, is one of the most interesting museums and exhibitions so far.
As for historical background, DC-3 was shot down by Soviet MIG-15s according to investigations, during it’s spy operation over Baltic Sea. Obviously, Soviets didn’t admit that for quite a while due to political reasons, but now that everything is public, we seem to know the truth that government wants us to know. So, enjoy the pictures (hope they are OK, even though all shot through the glass and without any tripod) and make sure to visit the museum if you will be in Sweden. Trust me, it is worth it! Some photos might be not really pleasant for some people, so, please read on if you want to see those.
Today, my son is changing his school after 2nd grade and thus here is the photo from the event.
I was also trying to take some pictures during the ceremony, but unfortunately, it was too hard to explain to a couple of excited parents that it might be not so good idea to put their heads in front of my lens on the random basis and kick tripod every now and again.
Anyhow, the summer is almost here and we are planning to go to Estonia for some time. Unfortunately, there is no internet connection @ our summer cottage, but I will be posting once in a while. Also, some more photos from Linköping trip will be posted quite soon. Stay tuned!
