I love gooooooooooooold!

I picked up some fantastic things at the camera fair, including this: Wow, it’s so damned gold! The camera fair was weird, not a success in that I didn’t get the item that I was looking for, which sucked, but I did come away with some fantastic consolation prizes.

A camera named after me! OMG!

Yeah, I am that awesome that there is a camera with my name on it! Cool huh? The Chinon Bellami… Well, I went to the camera fair, and although I didn’t get what I was looking for, I managed to get something that is really special to me….a camera with my name on it! The Chinon […]

The faces of Japan continued…

Well, the faces thing is back, with a few more for you. I have been pushing myself pretty hard lately…. It is all about getting the pictures of the people that I meet and interact with now. I still love to take pictures of still life and that sort of thing, but I am really starting […]

Is your glass half empty?

What you should be thinking when you buy a new lens . The question that everyone asks me when they have decided to buy a camera is usually “which camera should I buy, oh wise one?“ (Well, maybe no the wise one bit, but you know what I mean). This is a bit a a loaded question […]

1 min read

Walking the streets of the big city there is a lot to see, sometimes too much. There is something therapeutic about walking the streets of Tokyo, especially since the earthquake last month. I have spent 7 years in this city, but I have never seen Tokyo look so lost, for the want of a better word. […]
