If you slept in or do not live on the west coast of the US, you missed the super blue moon eclipse. Here is what you would have seen.
We read that Lake Tekapo had some beautiful flowers on its shores. So after a long drive, we thought we would take it easy and have a leisurely sunset shoot. When we showed up to a full parking lot, we knew we were in for some “combat” photography. Here’s what we did. Continue reading
Well, that time of year has come again. It’s the time when Peter insists on engaging in some sadomasochistic form of torture by insisting I cull through 1000+ photographs and pick my favorites.

I have had my Fujifilm X-T1 now for well over a year and my X-T2 for almost a year. Here are my thoughts and a short review: Continue reading
