So I got the +Olympus 9mm bodycap lens today….How to describe? Hmmmm……..LOVE IT! Slap it on and just go shoot. No worrying about focusing. Just makes it that much more enjoyable. Especially when used with the Art Filters!

I decided it was time to put some words on the screen.
										The winter of 2013/2014 was one that reminded those of us in Michigan that 
Mother Nature still rules the roost. It was cold, the snows were numerous, 
the winds cut into us like icy blades, and the dark days went on and on.
But amidst that bleak season there were times that I saw this season for 
the beautiful beast that it was and captured it.

A Winter That Refused To Quit And A Fresh Start To 2014

The winter of 2013/2014 was one that reminded those of us in Michigan that Mother Nature still rules the roost. It was cold, the snows were numerous, the winds cut into us like icy blades, and the dark days went on and on.
But amidst that bleak season there were times that I saw this season for the beautiful beast that it was and captured it.



I learned quickly this winter that thanks to the small sensor in a point and shoot that macro shooting with these small cameras opens up a lot of wild possibilities. The camera I used for this was an Olympus(surprised?;) TOUGH TG-2 which has a wicked “Super Macro Mode” which borders on being a low power microscope.



And during this winter I also found time to explore. It was not easy to get out of the warm comfort of home to drive around through the frozen wastelands or Michigan, but I did. And in doing so found one of the coolest places to shoot. Not only for still life, but also for self portraits as seen below.



The fruits of this winter’s discovery have been in use ever since.
Client work on the abandoned train.



Now I find myself facing better weather, longer days, and an unquenchable desire to shoot everything I see. This year holds so much promise, but then, I felt the same about last year, and the year before. I guess the takeaway is that no matter what, every year can be the year you capture great images, have great experiences, and learn new things. All it takes is the desire to go out and explore, and breathe in the world around you.

Take care.
