The Quiet Streets
         
     
 

Hello! Here is Izumi.

And a rather damp Izumi because most mornings have been raining and as well the light has not been very interesting at my walking time so I think the Decisive Moments have been taking the opportunity to have a bit of a lie-in.

As has the sun, so the light is rather more not even there than just bland and flat. I think it is coming up to the time that the clocks jump backwards for an hour so that will make my walks relatively later and the light I hope better for me and my PEN.

But as you know I can be a determined girl and my determinations have been rewarded a little way by the occasional happy photograph. Maybe they are young or inexperienced Moments and have not yet learned to avoid my prowling fingers and seeking lens.

  One thing that the darkness of early morning helps with is the lighting on the shop window models so I have been saying Hello to them again and sometimes it is worth pressing PEN into action, as you can see here.  
 

 

 
     
         
 
 
 
The Quiet Streets (060)
 
 
Olympus E-PL1 w 20mm, 1/60 sec, f/1.7, 200 ISO, 40mm (eqiv)

The Quiet Streets (466)

  You can note also that to make the best advantage of the darkness and the lights I have usually been putting the fast 20mm and 45mm on my PEN.

So even with rain and darkness if I persevere I can still capture happy photographs – just perhaps not as many of them. I hope you like what I have managed to include here.

Thank you for staying with me.

A slightly wetted

Izumi.
