PDML Photo Annual 2013

The Pentax Discuss Mailing List, or PDML, of which I'm a "member" (as much as one can be a member of an anarchy) produces an annual collection of photos and humour. This is the 2013 edition, and it's the best yet.

By ordering one for yourself and even some for your friends and family you'll be contributing to a great cause (childhood cancer research) but also spreading joy by way of shots from some very talented photographers.

So follow the links to the Blurb ordering page and go for it!

Kanzan Dusk 2

Celebrating our flowering Kanzan Cherry tree last week. With recent cold weather and rain the petals are all starting to fall now.

I lit this with a Pentax hotshoe flash (AF540-FGZ) off-camera in a 36" umbrella softbox. I added a green gel to the flash and colour-corrected in Lightroom. That increased the reds & pinks in the sky.

Lightning in a bottle

Enjoyed coffee and a scone at Agora in The Junction this morning. Along the way I spotted this beautiful vintage lamp glowing in the window of Eclectic Revival.
