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.

Hundreds of people and possibly hundreds of tripods,early morning sunrise,traffic. Name three things I normally dislike. However this was my first time seeing the Cherry Blossoms in bloom in Washington DC around the tidal basin. Amazing how many people get out to see this! Instead of focusing on the blooms I found it way more interesting to focus on the people,the amateur and professional photographers, the rows of tripods, the daily joggers, the clearly annoyed cyclists, the business travelers in flight, the folks going to work attempting to avoid the tourists.

Had the amazing opportunity to attend The Inaugural Ball in Washington DC last night. Many artists performed through a sea of iphones including Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Brad Paisley, Jamie Foxx (who serenaded the Biden’s) John Legend (who destroyed Marley’s Redemption Song but that’s another post for another time), Fun and SOUNDGARDEN. Yes, that’s right, the President’s Ball had Soundgarden close out the night. Outshined indeed.

While in DC I found these carp’s movements fascinating, I took at least 30 images within a few minutes just trying to record movements with slow shutter speeds. Enjoy. – Chris
