I got back home from Singapore without incident but within 30 hours, as I write this, I’m on a plane back out to California.
It was an action packed day. Saturday morning, after my 30+ hour flight back, I headed straight to Precision Camera. Charles from Olympus was there and I wanted to find out how the Olympus Day at Drink and Click went. It apparently was a rousing success. Too bad I missed it but I think we’ll have another one.
More importantly, I made it back for my son’s 11th birthday and survived the sleepover of 7 additional kids. I also let my, soon to be, 15-year-old drive for the first time around the neighborhood. They grow up so quickly and I’m happy I didn’t miss these key moments.
My Singapore trip was a whirlwind. Lot’s of work but I also got to have some fun. I shot some 1700 frames on the Nikon J1 and 900 on the Olympus E-PM2. It will take some time to edit these down but no doubt you’ll see these images soon enough.
As promised, I did some Instagrams throughout the journey. In case you missed it, here is what I captured, feel free to follow me. Unlike my usual photos shot with my larger cameras, I post processed these images completely with the iPhone. I’m finally starting to understand the allure of shooting, post-processing and sharing images on one small, go anywhere, connected device. It’s an entirely different dynamic.
It’s not about the image quality. It’s about creating small jewel like reminders of your life — at least that’s the way I now look at it. It’s also fun to do while I have downtime and It’s better than playing some mindless game. The creativity in the shooting and image processing is still there like regular photography, it’s just small and portable.
I’m not sure how much “big camera” shooting I’ll do during this trip to California. I’m going even lighter with the Nikon J1 and the Fuji XF1 point and shoot. I left the tripod and Olympus at home. And yes, I’m sure I’ll add to my Instagram collection via my iPhone 5S.
More frequent blog postings will commence in a week or so, once I get back home.
