A Photo Sampler (2004-2019)

This section has typically been used for dealing with photography technologies (such as last month's discussion of DeepPRIME), processing old analog images (for example these pictures from a 1994 Photo CD), or trying out a particular type of film (as I did with Kodak Portra back in April of 2018).

Trip reports or showing areas closer to home by presenting photos are things covered in different parts of this web site, but I'm starting to feel that here, we are getting too heavy on theory and much too light on practice. In an effort to correct this, I have gone through my photo archives in search for a series of pictures that I could present in this section. By definition, these photos could not have a common regional theme; instead I wanted to show what could be mistaken for a random collection of shots. It is not! The common thread that connects these photos is that they all are examples of shots I was truly pleased with, pictures where I feel I was able to capture a scene exactly the way I wanted to, with all the subtleties and details I noticed while there. Sometimes, I had plenty of time to do just that; on other occasions, I had to shoot very quickly or even blind (as in the photo of the exuberant tourist on the Croisette who never knew she was being photographed).

Some of these pictures have appeared on different pages already, some have not. The difficult part was to limit myself to just a few examples. I will not subject my web site visitors to hundreds of unrelated photos just because I like them, but I am not excluding the possibility of adding one or more pages to this sampler in the future. Finally, to at least pretend that we are in the photography section of the web site, I have included some EXIF data with every image. All focal lengths are given as 35mm equivalents. Needless to say, such a collection is bound to be subjective, but I do hope that viewers will appreciate at least one or the other photo on this page.
