Go out and shoot

Christmas is behind us, and with it the seemingly endless flow of festivities and opulent meals. My calorie balance is deeply negative in the past four weeks, but as the saying goes, you don’t gain wait between Christmas and New Year but rather between New Year and Christmas.

So now is the time to grab the camera (maybe the new one you got for Christmas) and head out into the streets. Roaming through the cities provides not only for plenty of street photography opportunities, it also gives you the opportunity for some brisk walking in fresh air to shake off those holiday cobwebs and re-energize yourself, creatively and physically.

This is why street photography is such a great genre, it keeps you out and about, and you can combine exercise and creativity!

The photograph was taken with the Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 12mm F/2. Image specs 1/60 sec @ f/2 and ISO 1000. Post-processing in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.

Wish you a great Saturday!

  1. I know what you mean about that space between Christmas and New Year’s! lol. I will need to do quite a bit of brisk walking to make up for it. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful new year day and that it sets the tone for a fabulous 2019!!

  2. Absolutely stunning photograph! And a great juxtaposition.
    Marcus, may 2019 will be the best year for you ever. Wish you plenty of ideas and inspiration.

  3. Thank you Marcus it was a great Saturday, I found a Round Tower Church, one that I had some how missed, as it was on a route that we have taken a lot. Mind you I didn’t have to walk far, only the length of the church. Hope your day was a good one 🙂 Lynne

    1. Glad you did have a great walk and found that church! I was skiing in the sun in Austria with family and friends, so had an awesome day myself! Wish you a nice New Years Eve and a great start into a happy 2019! Marcus

      1. Sounds like a wonderful day 🙂 Also wishing you a great New Years Eve and a wonderful photo taking 2019 🙂 Lynne
