No Identifiable Individuals

Twitter is one of the latest social media sites that has expanded their rules regarding publication of pictures or videos to include no use of any media of private individuals without the permission of the person(s) depicted.

This policy is becoming implemented, in rules and laws, in more and more places all around the world and more and more photographers are adhering to it and not showing identifiable individuals without gaining written permission to do so.

This growing trend, along with PA law that I mentioned before, are my reasons for no longer photographing individuals at Homewood.  These changes, along with Covid-19, have had a profound impact on my photography.  I have sold the cameras and lenses that I had purchased primarily for photography at Homewood.  It has also meant that I have little left to photograph and use in this blog of mine.

At Night with 12-40mm F2.8 Lens

I took the Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 lens for a walk at night to see how it performed.  It did OK but a lighter, smaller, faster lens would have been better.  I’m still dithering about whether I would prefer to use the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 and the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lenses rather than carry the Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 lens.

Natures Trash

I often just walk around our Villa looking for anything that catches my eye.  I found these this morning.  Even nature’s trash is beautiful, colorful, and valuable.  It will all decay and provide sustenance for future generations.  I wish that was also true for the trash that we generate.
