Day 364: Close-ups.

Here are two more from the Mamiya to see how it does close up. It focuses quite close for a TLR but this gets trickier to frame. Luckily the camera has a parallax* correction indicator to show how my frame changes as I focus closer or farther away. This lens sure is sharp.

Day 363 - Gnarly

Day 363 - Corner*Parallax – the difference in what you can see through the viewfinder and what the lens of the camera can ‘see.’

It’s hard to believe that there is only one more day in my 365 Project. I’m not entirely sure how I am going to handle its completion. I might be going through a bit of withdrawal. I’ve got a few ideas for next year, but it won’t be another 365. I’ve enjoyed it very much and it has absolutely helped me improve my photography, but two years in a row is too much!

Not only have I enjoyed being more immersed in photography than I have in a long time, but I’ve also found a community online. I’ve added a few blogs to the blog roll over there on the right of the screen.

Dave Vaughn Photography – Student and talented photographer.

Hypomanic Impression – Expressing life with bipolar disorder through photography

Lew Lorton Photography – Traveler, street photographer, and all-around interesting guy

Photos and Stuff – Don’t let the casual title fool you. It should be “Thoughtful, intelligent musings on photography.”

Sounds of a Shutter – An unexpected spirit sister across the ocean. Writing on misophonia and photography.

This Old Camera – Satisfying my desire to learn about tinkering and fixing cameras myself.

Mara Eastern’s Personal Blog – Another brave soul who posts every day in words or pictures, who shares my love of words and cats.

Life, Edinburgh – Amateur photographer and film devotee in Scotland.

BKS Pictures – Analogue photographer in Sweden. Beautiful black and whites and great information about techniques.

Not new but worth mentioning again: John Pickles Photography and of course, Buzz’s site, Filmosaur.

Go over there and check some of them out!

    Yes, I keep wondering how the early days of 2014 will be for you without thise pesky photos to worry about. I’ll miss your daily posts but I agree you must need a break. Also, I’ve missed regular postings on ‘As a Linguist’ A LOT, so I do hope this is something you feel you want to pick up again. Good wishes for 2014!

      I do miss my As a Linguist posts too. It’s something I really want to get back to. My tentative plan for 2014 is to make a schedule of posting – not once a day, but once a week for As a Linguist and twice a week for Dinosaur. I miss writing. I’ll have to keep it relatively simple at least for the Spring semester since that will probably be busier than usual, but I am starting to get itchy for it again 🙂

      Have a great New Year’s celebration and best wishes to you in 2014 and your move back to England!
