I was coming back from the 360 Bridge and saw this sign off of Loop 360, also known as the Capital of Texas Highway. It forms the western inner loop around Austin, through the suburbs. And, even though it’s within the Austin city limits, it looks like a country sign off of a country road.
I’ve mentioned it in passing, but I made my recent pictures — the last 6 — with the Panasonic GM1. It’s a camera from 2013 that I recently bought, partially to relieve the boredom of being locked-down at home for the last three months. I already had the perfectly matched Panasonic 12-32mm lens, and the GM1 cost me just $243 from keh.com in excellent condition.
While I have many Olympus, this is my first micro 4/3 camera from Panasonic. Its claim to fame? It’s the smallest micro 4/3 camera ever made. I shoot JPEG + RAW. The recent black and white are converted RAWs, while the Sunshine series was created with an in-camera JPEG only effect.
I’ll do a quick review of it soon. There are positives and negatives compared to Olympus. Though, for some reason, the images look sharper with the Panasonic. This photograph, in particular, really shows this off. Especially with the side lighting that adds additional drama and acutance.
