new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

a lucid afternoon

fyropotamos, milos, greece

as i prepared to get away for a short weekend at milos island a couple of weeks ago, i knew i'd have only one golden hour to shoot (as i successfully predicted that i'd prefer some extra sleep over the sunrise).

i had a circular polarizing filter for an older zoom lens, but it was too small for the wide-angle lens i use these days... so i bought a 77mm version to perhaps get some shots while the day was still brighter.

milos has wonderful crystalline seas... among the clearest i've ever seen (and i've seen a lot).

i didn't get the one shot i originally envisaged, but a few look decent.
