Art of Steel
         
     
 

Hello again!

Here is a colder Izumi because the mornings here are now in Winter and because of them I just went for a little walk to the park with the big chimneys and the steel sculpture that I have shown you before. I also wanted to test again the pinhole lenses that I have because you may have gathered I am not so much an otaku of them as I would like to be.

I have an idea why this may be so but I wanted to have another real test to confirm my thoughts on this.

And I was right. Here are not many photographs that I can show you as I was not inspired by what my PEN and I were seeing in front of us. It was not so much the subject as the way it was looking. You look too and you will probably agree.

 
     
     
         
         
 
 
 
Art of Steel I
 
 
Olympus E-PL1 w Pinwide, 1.6 sec, f/96, 400 ISO, 44mm (eqiv)
 
         
         
         
   
   
Art of Steel II
   
Olympus E-PL1 w Pinwide, 4 sec, f/96, 400 ISO, 22mm (eqiv)
         
         
     
     
 

There is a certain sense of melancholic in them which makes them sort-of happy photographs but I am sure that if they were to be any bigger than you see here the unsharpness would make you not really happy to be looking at them.

So they are not the material that I want for my exhibition.

 
     
     
         
         
   
Art of Steel III
   
Olympus E-PL1 w Pinwide, 2 sec, f/96, 400 ISO, 22mm (eqiv)
   
         
         
         
 
 
 
Art of Steel IV
 
 
Olympus E-PL1 w Pinwide, 1/6 sec, f96, 400 ISO, 44mm (eqiv)
 
         
         
     
     
 

Perhaps I could go back there again with a more proper lens with his glass faces on my PEN and then use Photoshop to enhance the moods that are evoked by that place in the early mornings.

I know M Cartier-Bresson would not have been thinking such thoughts and I must only think them for a short time also.

Next time I may have been back to my true purpose of huntress of Decisive Moments so until then I thank you again for reading and looking and being with me.

Izumi.
