Ricoh GR: Tribute to Daido Moriyama

Daido Moriyama once said “when I go out into the city I have no plan. I walk down one street, and when I am drawn to turn the corner into another, I do. Really I am like a dog. I decide where to go by the smell of things, and when I am tired, I […]

Ricoh GR: Street Photography King

When it comes to street photography, I think we can objectively agree that being inconspicuous is a good skill to acquire early on, its just the way of a “Karyudo“. This particular shot was taken using the Ricoh GR ‘s Snap Focus feature at 2m. Again, I continue to use a combination of Silver Efex(a […]


Saturday Market Place

Getting in the groove is not easy. Its actually quite tough, besides technique more than anything its your timing that’s lost. Little by little I’m getting it back though. I wasn’t going to publish this frame until Monday but what the hell a friend of mine, Don Springer, requested it, what are you going to […]

Tio Chago

Taken with the Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm 1.8 and processed in Lightroom with VSCO Film Emulation presets and tweaked to my liking. My uncle loves it, he said” It’s the best picture someone has ever taken of me.” I like that.

Cuban Cafecito

I thought I’d do something different for Week 36. Inspiration sometimes evades and others it just strikes. Blanca, is 91 years young and she makes an amazing “Cuban cafecito” or better known as an expresso in other parts of the world. These is her story.

The Square I

Isabel ― 450D     Its a new series I’m starting. The square format is even more intimate and its all about composition, not that other format require less, but the square is less forgiving.
