“I’ve been walking in central park
Singing after dark
People think Im crazy
Ive been stumbling on my feet
Shuffling through the street
Asking people, what’s the matter with you boy?” – The Rolling Stones

Yes we must define his high desire
Stand erect and not detect
The anythings that we could not admire”

“And the piano sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say “Man what are you doing here?” – Billy Joel

Getting a bit behind posting with a lot of work related travel lately. I like this side of the stage the best. Very similar to photography, you must keep the beat going for everything to fall in line.

No matter where you go in Washington DC you can see this building. Of course now it is probably on TV 24/7 with recent events.

A major dilemma with many photographers is what camera to bring on an excursion that is not related to work. iPhone? SLR? Leica? Medium Format? Well when kayaking a river even I don’t want to put a Leica close to the water so for the 4th of July in Washington DC I opted to use my FED 5b. It’s a Russian knockoff of a Leica rangefinder with a fairly decent 50mm f2 Industar lens. I wasn’t concerned if this camera got wet or if it fell into the water while kayaking. eBay is full of them and it’s easily replaceable where a Leica is not unless you have lots of funds available.

Now the FED does not have IS or VR so bobbing up and down in the water even when attached to a tripod is going to bring interesting results. This image was about a 10 second exposure using Kodak 200 Gold film.
