Twelve Monkeys

Posted Posted in Photoshoot, Travel

Well, I say twelve but everyone knows that when traveling between the tropics, one encounters way more monkeys than this little 2 digits number! Kids find them funny to watch, adults too, particularly if you decide to anthropomorphise them to a certain point! As I was reviewing the pictures taken from different locations in Sri […]

My summer experiment with stars and nocturnal skies awoke my desire to acquire an extra wide lens with large aperture. The now well known Samyang 14mm f 2.8 fits the criteria and despite not featuring an auto-focus, is praised for its sharpness and overall quality. One thing is to get the tool another is to […]

End of year holiday was once again an opportunity to spend time shooting different kind of pictures. Since I shoot kids in school most of the year, landscape would be a easy choice.

I did not think at the time that I would be lucky enough to witness such a phenomenon with […]
