It was sunny in Philadelphia

In May 2017, I spent a few days in Philly on business. (Remember travel?) I had the good fortune to have a long distance to walk between my hotel and my customer’s offices every morning and eventing during this glorious spring week.

There’s a reason why I always travel with my “real” camera.

And then it was over

The nasty heatwave, that is. It rained last night, and there’s more to come later today. Phew!

One thing I like about early morning rain is what it leaves behind in the garden: beautiful water drops everywhere.

All images made with a Fujifilm X-Pro3, a Fujinon XF50mmF2 lens (sometimes with MCEX-11 macro extension tube) and processed in Capture One Pro.

Curb your enthusiasm

My wife decided to grow yellow zucchinis in the backyard garden this year.

This is the first (and so far only) mature one. I think it’s happy to see us.

Now we’re just waiting for a few more to grow and ripen so we can make some of Nigella Lawson’s wonderful happiness soup.

Backyard jungle

Living on a small property in the suburbs, it’s really quite difficult to call any vegetation growing back there jungle-like. However, photography is remarkable in its ability to simultaneously reflect and twist reality, just by tweaking framing, angles and focal length.

And tweaking colours takes things to another level altogether.
