Walking in Hopes
 
         
     
 

Hello!

I have diverged down infrared, foggy, photo-journalistic and ancestral paths, have spent time looking at the sky or anime series, so now it is time to return to my core purpose – the footprints of my heroes and heroines. Perhaps Decisive Moments have forgotten my presence and become unwary. Maybe, like unmolested wildebeest who have become used to grazing in peace and contentment, they have become fatter and slower.

Perhaps it is time to wake them up. Perhaps it is time for the lioness to come bounding out of the bushes and capture some Decisive Moments before they’ve had time to become aware that things have changed.

There was only one way to find out, and here are the results:

 
     
     
         
 
 
 
Morning Smoko
 
 
Olympus E-PL1 w 14-42mm, 1/200 sec, f/6.3, 200 ISO, 28mm (eqiv)
 
         
         
         
   
Dellis Furniture
   
Olympus E-PL1 w 14-42mm, 1/200 sec, f/6.3, 200 ISO, 28mm (eqiv)
   
         
         
         
   
   
Leaning Phi
   
Olympus E-PL1 w 14-42mm, 1/60 sec, f/5, 200 ISO, 28mm (eqiv)
         
         
         
 
 
 
Phrenology Hula
 
 
Olympus E-PL1 w 14-42mm, 1/640 sec, f/11, 200 ISO, 62xmm (eqiv)
 
         
         
     
 

Was I successful? Well, I must have been to some degree or you would not be reading these words. And I like to think that I can be firm within myself and have a certain standard of quality. I owe it to you as much as myself.

So to conclude:

 
     
     
         
   
Riding Shotgun
   
Olympus E-PL1 w 14-42mm, 1/125 sec, f/4.5, 200 ISO, 28mm (eqiv)
   
         
         
         
   
The Last Post
   
Olympus E-PL1 w 14-42mm, 1/800 sec, f/11, 400 ISO, 28mm (eqiv)
   
         
         
         
 
 
 
Unfinished Dreams
 
 
Olympus E-PL1 w 14-42mm, 1/60 sec, f/3.5, 400 ISO, 28mm (eqiv)
 
         
         
         
 
 
 
Golden Gates
 
 
Olympus E-PL1 w 75mm, 1/320 sec, f/2.2, 200 ISO, 150mm (eqiv)
 
         
         
     
 

Will the trickle become a flood? Has the monsoon arrived? Will lush grasses carpet the plains once more and encourage Decisive Moments out of their hiding places? Only time and and footsteps will tell.

So goodbye for now, from your purring lens-lioness.

Izumi.

 
     
     
 
 
 
To fully understand my footsteps, please read me from the start.
