Listening to: Battlestar Galactica Season 4 sound track
So yeah its been a while since I wrote anything here. I am not good at keeping up with this whole internet youface social whatnot.
Before I wrote I bought a Panasonic G1. I sold it. It and I did not get along well. Instead I bought a Olympus EP1, that and I get along great. Fantastic camera.
Since my last update I have been back to the states too, spent most of the time in the Olympic mountains in Washington State which means landscape photography, something I have not done in a while because it had been 3 years since my last trip back and Chongqing is not the best place to do landscape photography unless its urban landscape.
Um....while I was back in the states I sold my Voigtlander 35mm lens, it was a good lens, but I dont use 35mm....
While I was back in the states I succumbed to gear acquisition syndrome (G.A.S.) and came back with many more cameras then I went over with. My new acquisitions include the Olympus EP1, a Ricoh FF3 AF Super, a Zeiss Ikon Contaflex, a Exacta VXii with Zeiss Jena 50mm Pancolar f2 lens, and a Kodak Retina iia but that was for someone else so it doesn't count. Im sure there is some other tings im forgetting but wont get into.
The airplane trip there and back was great. Flying on a Chinese airline is always so civilized except for those inevitable passengers who still think they are in the countryside and throw their half eaten food in the isle for everyone to step over. Animals. Speaking of food, my goodness Chinese airlines like to stuff you with food on those flights. Being fed every 3-4 hours a big multi-course meal can be tedious when you got all you can eat ham and cheese sandwiches and soda in front of you. Not to mention the Bulgarian wine which was even nicely chilled. Flying economy on an American cross Pacific flight however....you need lots of Vicodin.
Anyway, now that my schedule has let up a bit I have the opportunity to do some photography again, and there are lots of film from the states that need some souping too. Hope to have some stuff up sooner or later, but with how great I am at keeping up with this internet web stuff.....
