MindShift Filter Hive

Even though I’ve only had it for a short period of time I’m very happy with my MindShift Gear Filter Hive. It holds six round filters and six flat neutral density filters. It is colour coded to help with organization and there is room for my filter holder, remote release cable and a lens cleaning cloth.

West Coast Sunset

Without their leaves the trees create an interesting silhouette. At the end of the day there was a beautiful west coast sunset.

Ansco Shur Shot 20

I found this little treasure, an Ansco Shur Shot 20 box camera, in an antiques store. It’s in excellent condition and even had the original box. The camera was made around 1948 in Binghamton, New York. It has two brilliant viewfinders, which allows for horizontal or vertical composition. There is a fixed aperture of f/13 and it uses 120 film to take 6 x 9 cm images. What I really like is the Art Deco design of the metal faceplate.

Venus Rising

This week I continue to experiment with painting with light. I like this image with the ferry on the left and the planet Venus just after sunset. Click on the image to see a larger version.

Painting With Light

It was a cold evening, but I didn’t really notice, because I was having ALL CAPS FUN. It was my first attempt at painting with light and I’m happy with a few of my images. Click on a photo to see a larger version.
