The job that pays the bills is really giving me a hard time tis week in Portland. No chance to enjoy even a tiny bit of the record temperatures and summer sunshine that graces the Rose City in April, and no chance to pick up the camera for any kind of photography.
Instead I’m sitting in a windowless office solving all kinds of problems that came up in the last days. Tough luck…the glory of business travel.
At least I get to fly back home tomorrow, although need to go via Seattle to Amsterdam instead of taking the direct flight. Believe it or not, this is cheaper and we need to save travel costs. But also one more chance to miss a flight due to delays or whatever other reasons.
The photo above I took in the American Museum of Natural History in NYC the other week. Good example that you can shoot perfectly fine street photography in a museum.
Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4 Pro Zoom. Image specs are 1/25 sec @f/4 and ISO 3200. Focal length was 35mm (70mm full frame equivalent). I needed to crank up the ISO as it was pretty dark in the Hall of Human Origins, where I caught this great juxtaposition of the prehistoric skeleton looking into the face of a visiting lady and vice versa. I wonder who is seeing ghosts 😉
Wish you all a great Thursday!
Soggy outside? Shoot in an exhibition!
