When travelling we can sometimes find inspiration in everyday life… like these tabletops and chairs that I photographed while in Italy a few years ago. There are numerous visual factors that can catch our eye when we’re out walking with a camera in hand. It could be splashes of colour. A flow of geometric shapes. Or something that compels us with its simplicity.

Street Photography Oddities
When travelling I’ve always enjoyed finding street photography oddities as they spark a lot of visual interest in me. I appreciate that many other photographers find high levels of interest in photographing people in street situations. One approach isn’t better than another… they’re just different.
Taormina Colours and Curiosities
During our recent trip to Italy, we participated in a number of walking tours in various cities. This article, Taormina Colours and Curiosities, shares a selection of 14 photographs grouped because of their bright colours and eclectic nature.
Street Photography in Napier New Zealand
During our fall 2018 trip to the North Island, my wife and I spent about an hour doing some street photography in Napier, New Zealand.

Simple Compositions in Port Dover
A couple of days ago, a friend and I were out attempting to photograph some Sandhill Cranes and other birds in various locations on the north shore of Lake Erie. In the afternoon we ended up in Port Dover where we walked around for about an hour or so capturing images as our spirits moved us. For whatever reason, my eye was drawn to details and patterns, the result being a selection of simple compositions in Port Dover. Continue reading Simple Compositions in Port Dover
A Visit Back in Time at Burkes Pass

A morning walk with Nikon 1 J5
Since it looks like the earthquakes in Japan will be delaying Nikon products for some time to come I purchased a Nikon 1 J5 this week.
I had been waiting for an updated V-series camera to be launched that featured the new 20.8 MP BSI sensor that is in the J5. Since an updated V-series camera will likely be delayed until at least February 2017 I thought it was a good time to purchase a J5.
This article features a few images I took during a morning walk with the Nikon 1 J5 and 1 Nikon 10-100 mm f/4-5.6 zoom lens.
