Lunch time with the Helios-44m

I’m pretty pleased with the results of the Helios-44M, and by the fact that I can easily bring the camera to work without carrying too much weight.

Today I went for a quick stroll around the Science Park in Cambridge, found out there’s more than one pond and took some pictures.

Waiting for the season change

It’s been a while since the last time I posted something or went out to take some pictures.

These are some of the latest photos I took during a long walk on a very cold winter day, in February.

Despite the chill and the rain, everything seems to be getting ready for the season change, and so am I.

 

By Night

With days shorter and colder, sometimes it’s difficult to find the right time to go out and take some pictures.

It is still too dark when commuting back from work, so I started taking pictures by night, even though I was never comfortable doing so. I wasn’t sure my camera could handle the low light conditions very well, and probably my hands weren’t steady enough to avoid bringing a tripod.

Whatever the result, I enjoyed trying. It seems like, when it’s darker, the world slows down a bit, even in very busy crossroads.

Thanks to Justin Carey whose talk in July 2016 convinced me – and everyone else in the room – that everything is more interesting at night.
