wii are snowed in


a different white storm, far away...

it looks like i've never posted pictures from burning man to the photoblog... well, i have some of that :) and some more in my archives that could be here. good time to post some...

this one is from dust storm the last day of burning man 2008. niilartey and i actually got lost there... a bit scary, but really an amazing experience. very surreal...

still snowed in...





guess where is this?

Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans! Very touristy -- and very New Orleans :)


river in moscow

20080423 I am yet to figure out landscapes with Lensbaby... There is a potential, I know, but I am not quite there...

I believe this river's name is Likhoborka, which is a name that implies something dangerous... not all that dangerous now, and there is a new church nearby (perfectly not in foucus)...

Lensbaby goes to Moscow

I had no chance yet to sort the pictures from vacation in Japan, but I decided to first go through pictures from Moscow (mostly because there are fewer of those...)

I don't think this one can be used as a proof that lensbaby pictures are actually better for everything, but I will keep experimenting... There are so many perfect picture of this that another one just doesn't seem very exciting...


in japan

I brought about 2000 shots from Japan, nearly everything taken wiht Lensbaby. It will be fun to get through!

I will still be travelling for another week though, and then I expect to be quite busy when I get back :( ... Hopefully I can publish more while the pictures are still reasonably fresh...

This is Marina, daughter of my friends in Tokyo.

photoshoot in vegas

selective focus

20080320 lensbaby is so much fun! and the most fun is the selective focus part - only one thing can be in focus at a time, you have to choose carefully!

red shoes

20080319 you can give your feet a break sometimes... they deserve it...



I just discovered a whole class of pictures (which probably is well known to others). Having a high-ISO camera (mine works well at 1600) and an f/2 lens, I can use somebody else's autofocus beam as a source of light!
