It’s amazing how many photographs I take at airports. Perhaps it’s because I’ve traveled more these days but I think there is much more to it than that. As you know, I like architecture and in the United States, airports can be a great source of modern design. I just got back from a one week trip to Northern California. These photographs from the San Francisco Airport (SFO) were taken with my Olympus XZ-1 point and shoot.
The XZ-1 is my latest camera and I decided to put it through its paces on this California trip. I usually travel with two Olympus Pens, the E-PM2 and the E-P3. For this trip, I decided to bring my E-PM2 with the 14mm and the XZ-1. With two excursions to San Francisco and one to Palo Alto, I have plenty of photographs to show you. I seem to be creating more content than I have time to share with you so I’m falling behind. At least I will have a lot to talk about for months to come.
Pairing the XZ-1 with my EM-2 was an interesting combination. I had my high quality camera for my urban landscapes but was able to use a point and shoot for versatility with decent image quality. The XZ-1 was small enough that I wore it though the airport and I was able to snap some nice compositions. All of the photos were taken on the 10 minute ride on the AirTrain at SFO. The simple lines and curves emphasized by the black and white. I have the tendency to shoot wide but the zoom lens gave me some flexibility.
