A month ago I upgraded and retired my GF1. Since then I’ve been combing through my collection of micro 4/3’rds photos and putting them up on flickr. I’ve discovered so many good ones and have been re-editing others. It’s going to take a long time to go through the hundreds I’ve flagged so I’ll just post what I have now. Highlights are below and the full album is here on flickr. I realize that kwalsh has done this type of post a lot better than I have a little while back. GF1 with aki-asahi leather kit by Alan Galura, on Flickr Prior to the GF1 I had only shot film. I was apprehensive about making the switch to a dslr camera. At the time I was shooting with a Canon Cannot rangefinder and the GF1/20mm combo just seemed like a natural fit. I loved the form factor right off the bat. My friends thought I was just messing with another old eBay camera, and dslr shooters still thought I was still shooting film! Pleasent Valley Dam Road by Alan Galura, on Flickr Red Rock Rendezvous by Alan Galura, on Flickr Serenity Crack by Alan Galura, on Flickr The compact size enabled me to take the GF1 a lot of places I couldn't take a DSLR. This is shot 3 pitches (~400 ft) up a climb in Yosemite Valley. Jill by Alan Galura, on Flickr I also took the GF1, 20mm pancake, and Oly 9-18 through a 16 day hike of the John Muir Trail 5 years ago. When I initially posted this on Facebook a few people commented on how dirty her hands were. While re-editing it again recently I noticed that her pants/hands were in focus and her face was actually slightly out of focus. Still one of my favorite trail portraits. Feeble attempt at Ansel Adams by Alan Galura, on Flickr I've found that I constantly go back to my black and white roots with my edits. Tunnel View by Alan Galura, on Flickr Black Mountain Bash 2010 by Alan Galura, on Flickr Camp 4 - Steve Stearns by Alan Galura, on Flickr Night 1 by Alan Galura, on Flickr Oyster Delicacy by Alan Galura, on Flickr Luna vs. Emily by Alan Galura, on Flickr Dixie wants to play in the snow by Alan Galura, on Flickr Goat Crest Saddle by Alan Galura, on Flickr Blue Lake Pass by Alan Galura, on Flickr The last two were shot on the Sierra High Route this past summer. The route is a 195 mile off trail trek through the High Sierra. The 20mm/GF1 came with me mostly for documenting purposes. It was hard to make pictures because of the amount of suffering I was putting through myself mentally and physically. I did manage to make the time to take some photographs and I'm still going through and editing a lot of them. I have since put the GF1 to rest and replaced it with a GM5. Because of the High Route trip the photography bug has bit me again. I've added a few lenses to the line up (because of the weight savings of the GM5) and I can't wait to make photography more of a focal point to my trips. Hope you enjoy!
