You’ve got a Friend

You've got a Friend
You’ve got a friend | Gosausee | 2018 | 1/125 sec @ f/5.6 and ISO 200

“You’ve got a friend” is a great song by Carol King. If you don’t know it, look it up on Youtube. Big Girl got a new friend while hiking on Lake Gosau in the Austrian Alps this afternoon. The butterfly initially was attracted by Grandma’s shoes, then hopped over onto the legs of The Significant Other. Then he transferred himself onto the fingers of Big Girl. He sat on her hands for a good 15 minutes. The amazing close-up shot you can find after the jump….

These two photographs show the versatility of my Olympus 12-100mm F/4 lens I had on the OM-D E-M1. The focal length of the first photo was 24mm (48mm full frame equivalent), the photo below was taken with 61mm (122 full frame equivalent).  There are still people disputing the capabilities of the micro4/3 system. That you can’t shoot photos with a nice bokeh with these small sensors. Well, keep carrying those heave full frame bodies and those big heavy lenses….if you like 😉

  1. I love both these shots Marcus!! And the close-up did an amazing job on the details. Congrats on your 400th post!!

  2. MARCUS!!! These images are simply beautiful. Hats off to you on yet another wonderful, extraordinary post. And double-hats off on this being your 400th post. Here’s to 400 more! 🙂

  3. Beautiful shots. We saw James Taylor perform that song not too long ago. He had written a line in his Fire and Rain song that said he’d “seen lonely times when I could not find a friend.” Carole King heard it and wrote this song to him. Pretty cool story.

  4. Marcus, these are spectacular photographs! Congratulations on your 400th post! I enjoy your photography and your writing.
    Wish you a nice Sunday.
