A really really cold New York winter

Playing in the snow

I recently landed in New York for one of the coldest winter days on record! The temperature officially reached -16 degrees Celsius (3 degrees Fahrenheit), though it felt like about -23 degrees Celsius with the wind kicking in.  I had just flown in from Europe where I thought I would have experienced the coldest weather on this trip.

A few wet shots with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and Voiglander 17.5mm

xmas in the wet in brisbane

Over the last 4 weeks I have been desperately hunting for a mini HDMI to micro HDMI conenctor but they just do not seem to exist in Australia! I decided to find a work around in the city yesterday and even though it was raining, which is great considerign there were 3 months there where we had no rain), I decided to take the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the Voigtländer 17.5mm lens. I have loved this combination on my E-M5 so it was befitting that I play with it a little more to see what I coul do on the E-M1 though I didn't bother with focus peaking as that feature is a little lagging in the OM-D E-M5 and I needed quick action so I stuck to my zone focusing which I have mastered with this lens (to a certain degree anyway).

A wet February on the streets of Brisbane

umbrellas and rain

It has been quite wet in brisbane over the last few weeks (in fact it is still raining).  I have had to empty the rain guage several times recently with one of those times having more than 10 inches of rain in it and over flowing.  This is not a common occurrence for Brisbane, despite what people might think after the last couple of floods.  Even though it is quite wet on the streets at the moment it does make for some great photo opportunities if you are willing to get a little wet (and your camera).  This is where having a weather proof camera like the Olympus

On the streets of Kuala Lumpur again!

I was on another one of my crazy stop overs while traveling - this time Kuala Lumpur.  It was a sunny Saturday morning (with rain looming), however I managed to squeeze a couple of hours in for a bit of shutter therapy with a fellow street photographer - Robin Wong.  You can see his version of the morning at http://robinwong.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-quiet-morning.html.

Zone focussing with the 17.5mm voigtlander on the streets of Brisbane

yellow and pink

More recently, with so many different types of cameras and lenses to choose from, it can be quite confusing for any street photographer (or in fact any photographer) to choose the right camera and lens combination that works for them.  I believe that each person develops their own style of shooting and this includes finding a camera and lens combination that feels comfortable as well as performs to their expectations.  All working cameras can take a photograph, but it takes practice, skill, expertise and a little patience to capture a particular moment or memory.

Out and about in Bukit Bintang

Orange Hair in Bukit Bintang

About a week ago I had the pleasure of catching up with Robin Wong (see his version of the story at http://robinwong.blogspot.com/2012/06/night-shooting-with-visitor-from.html) another fellow Olympus shooter based in Malaysia.  I originally sent him a message online asking where to get film developed in Malaysia as I knew he was a street photographer based in Kuala Lumpur and I had decided
