How would we remember events, or pass on memories of events to others? In days past we would have to rely on a painting to depict a person/landscape or historical event. We also would write about an event to capture the spirit and mood.
Today we are spoilt as we document our lives through photography. The smartphone takes millions upon millions of pictures everyday, by millions of people. They are making a statement of their life through the smartphone. The saying that a “picture is worth a thousand words” is so true today.
While I use a smartphone for occasional photography. I prefer a SLR – mirrorless for the ability to carry with you all day – carryability, but occasionally the smartphone will be the only device I have – therefore may sneak into the website. I find, I do not like the smartphone for taking pictures, as it gives a limited view, with a limited exposure and a limited ….. What I am saying it is limited in it’s ability, and the sensor is so small. Therefore I have one choice for carryability and flexibility – mirrorless SLR, of which there are now many. My choice – Olympus OMD Series (Micro Four Thirds). I am a convert from the Full Frame Canon 5D Series – I loved the camera but the lenses and camera weight was too much, so it was left at home to often – not so with the Olympus OMD E-M1 and Olympus OMD E5 Mk II.
So I would like to share my view of the world with you – to make me accountable to me craft. I choose the name “Twisted Lane” to represents my journey as I weave through the laneways of life.
This is life as seen through “my lens”.
