Week 13 | September 7, 2019

I came up with some decent images with A weekend trip to Camp Seymour, Gig Harbor, Washington and two short morning walks at Discovery Park in Seattle.

Looking at creating albums back on Flickr, if anyone does that, please give me some advice.

Modica and Ragusa, Sicily | Fuji x100f

Over one hundred photos on my digital camera and a couple rolls of Kodak, Portra 400 and I left many shots untaken.

Our day trip from Siracusa, Sicily started in Noto and continued in Modica and ended in Ragusa.

Ortigia, Sicily | Sculptures | Fuji x100f

Wandering the streets of Ortigia, we happened upon a small gallery. The exhibit’s title: Ciclopica from Rodin to Giacometti.

Taormina, Sicily | iPhone 8 Plus

A few days in this Sicilian paradise with an iPhone, Fuji X100F, Canon AE-1, and a Rollei 35 S yielded many great shots.

Here are some from the iPhone.

Ortigia, Sicily | Food

While Ortygia’s alleyways, church facades and street scenes provided ample photographic opportunities, the food didn’t disappoint.

It’s not all food. We had some excellent Prosecco, tried some limoncello, and even had a cocktail or two.

Week Eleven | August 30, 2019

First week back to work. Not many opportunities to stroll, hike or make intentional photography errands. Instead, I used the camera to help me see.

The first photos is of my Rollei 35 S. Three rolls of ektar 100 were shot in Sicily with it. I’m waiting for the results.

The remaining photos are all done with the x100f. All JPEGS with very little by way of editing. Three are from the same day.

Daily photo challenges, for me, become a drag on creativity and I leave too many results out. Weekly will allow me to have a few photos from the same day. So going forward I’ll be aiming to have 5 to six photos a week here.
