Cleveland is being invaded!!

I'm in the science fiction mood after taking a few photos at University Circle in Cleveland, OH. Images were post processed in PS Elements 21.

The sculpture is "Judy's Hand" by Tony Tasset.

Yesterday, I had a wonderful hike on one of the trails at Mt. Gilead State Park (Mt. Gilead, OH). We had a brief thunder shower the night before, and although the sky was blue, it sounded like it was raining in the woods because of water dripping off the leaves of the trees. I spent some time trying to capture the beautiful rays of sunlight penetrating the forest growth.

Been spending a little time digging through some old(er) images from my back-up drive. I've almost lost track of the mount of kit I've been through in the last 4 years (this was taken on one of my first days out with an M43 camera) and often wonder if I've made any progress. Still a lovely combo, the E-M1.1 & 12-40. If I could only have one set-up, I'd be happy with this.

This image taken at Southwell Workhouse in June 2017. A fascinating place to visit, but also sobering and moving.

I really like that, Richard. Lovely composition, and balance of light and dark.

Would print beautifully.

Thanks John - really appreciate the kind comment.

Been quite an eye-opener looking at some of these older images, and whilst I love gear almost as much as taking the images themselves, I have come to wonder if all the swapping and changing has been worth it. Fun? Of course, and I know it's a journey so many other people have been on.

I have to say that whether it's been a Leica, Nikon or Olympus, ALL of your photos have been superb Richard.
So, carry on swapping to your heart's (if not your wallet's) content. :thumbup:

Thanks Brian - you're too kind :)

Giving up motorcycling (for medical reasons) 5 years ago, and driving a 14 yr old Peugeot 107 means I'm not spending out on other stuff I suppose. :D

I feel the same when looking at my better photos taken with my Nikon Coolpix E5000, but particularly when reviewing my images taken with my E-510 and its two kit lenses (and with some of my adapted OM lenses). Some of these are among the very best images I have ever taken.

Much as I like my current three "kits" ...
