On every street in Vietnam (Part 1)

on the streets of vietnam

The last couple of weeks has been quite an adventure between street photography and underwater photography with a couple of workshops thrown in to keep things interesting. The series of photos presented here try to capture the streets of Hanoi and give you a glimpse into what its liek to be on these streets.  In amongst this I also managed to completely convert a non-photographer into a serious street photographer (more on this in a future post).

Old Town PJ for breakfast

Jul
26
All in twos

Today was like any other day in Malaysia - trying to make the hard decision on what to do first!  I decided that it was going to be an easier day and grabed my camera, spare battery and the old 25mm Voigtlander lens that I haven't shot with for quite some time.  I was hungry so first stop was going to be old town PJ and a wander through the markets with a little roti canai and murtabak on the way,  I love these very local indoor markets as there is a little hussle and bustle but at the same time quite relaxing to browse through.

Beauty, Serenity and the Olympus OM-D E-M5 underwater

Jul

A landscape of colours

Down here, under the water, there is none of the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungles many of us live in, there are no urgent deadlines and no stresses.  It is a place of beauty and serenity which has barely been explored - but holds so many hidden treasures if you take the time to look carefully.  During my latest diving adventures I decided to take the Olympus OM-D E-M5 mounted in a nauticam housing with me.  I made several dives with either the Olympus 60mm Macro lens or Panasonic 7-14mm lens mounted on the camera.

Playing with the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 on the streets of Kuala Lumpur

The butcher

I am now back in one of my favourite countries shooting on the streets (and underwater - but more on that in the next post).  On arriving in Malaysia, I didn't know whether to eat first or grab the camera or do both.  I opted for doing both in the end as there is so much good food here, especially during Ramadan.  I decided that after my Asam Laksa I would hit the streets with the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 lens mounted on the Olympus OM-D E-M5.  I have not really got into using this lens as I also own the voigtlander 17.5mm lens and that has been my favourite for so long now.

Missing the 12mm wide lens on the streets of Brisbane

Jul

here's looking at you

Its been a little while in between posts.  The last 4 weeks have been extremely busy in all regards.  On the photography side I have been continuing to do shoot after shoot (including a little playing with a Sony NEX in an unmaned areial vehicle UAV).  I have been using the Panasonic GH3 for more and more video these days and coupled together with the 17.5mm Voigtlander lens it is a brillant combination (ohhh - and a variable ND filter helps as well).

A friday afternoon walk in Brisbane

Here's seeing you

It's Friday afternoon, the light is quickly disappearing and its time for a quick walk on the streets of Brisbane.  While Brisbane is often considered a small country type city with two real seasons, it is still home to some great photographic opportunities.  Here are a couple of photos from this afternoon's short walk.  Photos were all taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Voigtlander 17.5mm lens.

New Olympus OM-D E-M5 screen protectors have arrived

Jun
11

Given the hard life my cameras are acustomed to I do try to protect them in some small way.  Now with the display screens being a common feature of most modern cameras I find it necessary to protect them where possible (and I have scratched and chipped a few over the years).  My Olympus OM-D E-M5 is my travel camera and nearly anything camera.  I use it in the rain, snow and in dusty sandy conditions.  It is used in cold and hot temperatures and I carry extra batteries continuously as it does chew the batteries.  I always have a minumum of 2 batteries with me at all times.

A very brief visit to Sydney

Jun

In the light

In between moving the Footless Fish to a new sever (which has just been completed) and being in the busiest time at work, I have had the opportunity to spend a few hours transiting through Sydney, and like any keen commited street photographer who wants to master their art, I had to take a few random photos on the street.  Each street always offers a unique opportunity for a photographer - the hardest part is often seeing that opportunity.

Footlessfish update

May
29

Hi all

Over the last few weeks Footlessfish.com has become a little slower due to the increased traffic. I have started to move most of the current content and database to a new server and hope that this will be online at the new server in the next few days. Apologies to all those loyal readers who have witnessed a slower than usual website, but hopefully over the next few weeks we will have some fun things coming to Footlessfish again. It has been just over 12 months since I last refreshed the site and since that time I never thought the number of visitors/readers would increase as much as it has (also lots of spam to annoy me). More updates soon.

Cheers

Shaun

Arcs, circles, orange, black - a partial solar eclipse

a partial solar eclipse

If you were in the right place this morning you would have had the opportunity to see the first solar eclipse of the year - in this case an Annular Solar Eclipse (often known as the ring of fire).  I wasn't in the right place so I was only ever going to see a partial solar eclipse this morning and to make things even more challenging, I also had to contend with an overcast cloud filled sky with a drizzle of rain.
