The Loxia 35mm might be my favorite lens. Tried it out on a tripod up on Georgian Bay a few weeks ago. Nice stopped down a bit on the color one. 30 seconds wide open on the B&W.

Some street photography from Bangkok using the Lumux GF1. (2013)

Taking photos from a kayak in the ocean (i.e. saltwater) borders on impossible with a non-waterproof camera. I have tried a few things over the years, but have never really been satisfied. Using an underwater housing isn’t ideal as the lens is covered with a salt film all the time which is extremely hard to remove. GoPro is OK, but not really what I need.
This year I tried using my little Ricoh GR with the Ricoh GW-3 Wide Adapter (21mm). Again, not ideal as I had to keep it in a dry bag under my kayak skirt, but I still managed to get a few keepers.
I also used a Singh-Ray Color Combo which makes nice BW conversions but slows my ISO down considerably.
Here are a few samples. Not sure what I will do next year….

It was great to shoot at Hong Kong Academy in Sai Kung on my last HK trip. The school is almost purpose built for my style. Lots and lots of massive windows. I basically mix up candid doc style shooting, along with quick portraits along the way.
The design is always great at HKA. I rarely get to see my photos used so nicely.

Just wrapping up another great season of kids photography here in Hong Kong. Best city anywhere for my style with all the beaches, parks and urban jungles. Some nice houses too!
More of my work here.
Here are a few recent samples.
