    A few weeks ago, I had a surgery to repair a torn bicep. I've not been able to go out and create any images until today!!
    In my current condition, shooting with my Nikon DSLRs is an impossibility.

    So, after acquiring the EM1 and getting to a point where I can finally get out of the house, here are some first shots.

    Not bad considering the following:

    1) I had to hold the camera out in front of me because the brace i am in is locked at 90 degrees.
    2) It was a pretty dismal day weather wise. It decided to go up to about 60F, but severly overcast, which does not play well with the relatively slow Oly 75-300/4.8-6.7. even outside, I needed to use ISO 1250-3200 just to get a decent exposure. Also, the new exhibits were all in the nocturnal animals section in the Australia area. I was able to use the Oly 25 and 45 f/1.8 a bit in places.

    Enjoy. It was just great being able to get out there and shoot a little. I'm like an addict - I need to get out there and shoot!!!! :D

    So what do these images tell us about yourself?

    My absolute favorite photography to do is portraiture, and I don't care if that is human or some other animal.

    Let me reverse the question, then, what do you think it tells you of me?
