I get down on my photography when I start comparing what others are doing. I start to feel jealous that they can travel to amazing locations and can dedicate the time to shoot.

I have those same frustrations of feeling like I could have so much a better portfolio if I had better locations. I see all those amazing landscapes from out west and wish I could go there with ease and regularity. I would love to do landscape photography, but for me landscape photography is usually shooting at a lake. I love my local lake (West Point Lake), it's wonderful as lakes go, but I'm a 4 to 6-hour drive to the mountains; too far for a daytrip. Same goes for the beach - and that's to a beach that has little to no shore interest except brilliant white sand. Even architecture/cityscape​s are harder now as Atlanta is about 90 miles up I-85 from me.

The one thing I do have is time - being early-retired is fantastic for doing daytrips any day of the week I want.

OFF topic.

when i quit photography business, i would downgrade to either Fujifilm or Olympus M43. Which one do you prefer or is best? I really love the retro styling.

one more of Maria Romero. She can be an actress. I made up a pretend movie scene when I shoot this and she nailed it in one shot. It was our first shoot ever. If I can make a model or subject be as comfortable as her, i know I win half the battle.

Your portrait work is so killer, and this is among your best IMO.

!:20 ramp - flat section - 1:20 ramp - flat section etc etc etc. Its so that someone in a wheel chair can wheel themselves up it and is the reason the structure ended up 100m long!

As an architect, that stuff is my daily life and I HATE it... Not because I have a problem with ADA or handicapped people... Just the regulations and their insanity.

Yes some of the rules are OTT. For example on the stairs the top and bottom nosings need to be yellow and the intermediates white for visually impaired people. Fair enough right? But sometimes we are made to paint the stair risers too. These can't be white or yellow or the same colour as the structure , green in this case, so what colour should they be? This is also so that visually impaired people can tell they are stairs. in the railway our temporary barriers have to be blue or yellow and black. Any other colour apparently will confuse all the train drivers!

I've used all formats, each has their strengths and weaknesses. For the type of work that you do Vin, a Fuji X-T2 or X-Pro 2 with 2-3 primes would be great. It has enough pop and for a portrait and people shooter it works great. Olympus makes great bodies and they work well for long, telephoto glass but I don't think you'll be satisfied with the files nor the high ISO performance.

I imagine it's like a safety ledge where someone in a wheelchair can rest without fear of rolling downhill. We used safety ledges on manhole shafts that were 20' or more deep so a person could rest. The ladder is offset at the ledge too so a person wouldn't fall the entire depth of the shaft at one time. :rolleyes:

Thanks for sharing. I really enjoy seeing architectural photos particularly of older buildings and homes, from the 'old world'. Like many from the US, my ancestors hail from Scotland, England, and Wales. I'm especially interested in seeing photos from Wales, around Cardiff and Caerphilly, where my Lewis line were large land owners.

I somehow never get to Wales Gene sorry...

Here is a more "Up Market" version of a Hamstone residence. Built in 1598 "Montacute House" again in Somerset. Whilst searching my Sony images I've realised I haven't been there with my Sony gear [my A7R2 is 2 years old yesterday ;-)a] so if you don't mind this one is from an LX5. (Historical info can be found here https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/Montacute_Hous​e (external link) )

I will definitely revisit this place and get some images with my A7R2 as it's only about 8 miles down the road - shame on me !

Gosh it's still sealed ?
As a Scot, I have to admit that whisky [no 'e'] just tastes like medicine to me :rolleyes:

In not familiar with this whisky but that's an excellent product shot.

Your shots had me looking at the FE90 yesterday but I had to remind myself I didn't use my tokina 90 enough when I had it

Speaking of whisky, my mate won a bottle of 30 year macallan recently. Since he doesn't drink whisky he put it in a whisky auction and it sold for £1700. Not sure what that is in dollars but more than 1700. Not bad for a freebie

Edit - it's $2232 according to google

Great deal for him. I don't mind paying for a bottle of 12-year-old Macallan once in awhile but to me, even their 18-year whisky is too big an increase in price for the marginal increase in flavor. I'm sure I'd feel the same with their older vintages too.

I do like good scotch occasionally but thank goodness I'm not so much of a 'connoisseur' that I'd spend that kind of money for it.

Here's a link to the auction website if you are interested. If you click "all auctions" it lets you look at completed auctions. You can also search by whisky name if you are curious. This macallan sold for £6800!!!! https://www.scotchwhis​kyauctions.com …40-gordon--macphail-75cl/ (external link)
