Tragic Events

IMG_2588

As intriguing as this image is, it represents a tragedy.  I  dropped the pouch with my Sony RX100 Mk5 on the garage floor and ran over it.  Amazingly, the camera actually works!  This certainly says something for Sony build quality.   However, I do not have access to any of the display functions and the viewfinder will not pop up.  I’ve taken photos with each of the settings on the camera and now have a rough idea of the setting for each of them.  I did speak with a camera shop to see if it was worth repairing, they guess-ti-mated at least $200-$400.  It would cost me $45 to send it in and get an official estimate.

The Shape of Snow, Pt. 2

NVM00024-Edit-Edit

Winter seems to lend itself to black and white photography.  Most color has left for the season, leaving only the play of light and shadow on the landscape of mostly white.  It’s at this time I enjoy seeking out the flowing, organic forms of snowdrifts.  With the right lighting, the curves and edges create wonderful abstract forms similar to those found in areas where water and wind have worn the soft rock into amazing shapes.  But, where those took thousands, if not millions, of years to form, these can form in minutes.
