We’re heading off to Austria for vacations tomorrow morning, so I wanted to present you with one last potd before I’m absent for two weeks. I might or might not have internet access in Austria, so I might not be able to post any updates during that time.
This shot is actually an older one, from our visit to the zoo early last month, but I only got to processing it today.
"Ingoti" | Olympus E-P1 + Lumix 45-200 @ 45mm, f/4, 1/500 sec, ISO 200
I’ll take with me my complete camera gear, i.e. the E-P1 + kit zoom, 20/1.7, and 45-200, the M8 + Biogon 2/35, and my Yashica film rangefinder, loaded with Ilford HP5+. I’ll be shooting the Biogon also on the E-P1 (via adapter), and will write a guest article about the lens on the M8 and E-P1 for Steve Huff’s website, so stay tuned for that! So, see you in two weeks then!
Every now and then we are being reminded what the most precious and valuable things in our lives are, and that we should always cherish them.
I love you!
E-P1 + Lumix 45-200 = LOVE! That’s why I couldn’t possibly sell the E-P1 (apart from its portability and fun factors): I couldn’t ever get this close to things with the M8 – just not possible! So, no second lens for the Leica soon
"Blue/Moon" | E-P1 + Lumix 45-200 @ 200mm, f/8, 1/200 sec, ISO 200
I cropped the original image significantly (to a size of 1400px, then resized it to 700), which I think works great for web use!
Among the some 250 unprocessed pictures from last month, which are waiting for their treatment on my hard disk, I found these three, which are all in-camera b&w’s from the E-P1. You know I love the E-P1′s in-camera b&w conversions, and here are three more reasons why

Yesterday we seized the wonderful weather and spent the afternoon at the zoo of Cologne. This was my first time at the zoo with my new Lumix 45-200 telephoto zoom lens, and there were a lot of great opportunities for taking pictures. Out of the many shots I took, I today present you only those that have birds as their subject, as this lens is ideal for birding due to its versatile focal range of 90-400mm equiv.
