Raindrops keep falling on my .. puddle!

After a rainy day I often take my camera and I take a walk on the streets/squares of my city: I like to take photos of reflections from puddles. To achieve a good result I use a wide angle lens and I put the camera at ground level ( better if the camera has a tilting display ) but it’s not enough! To obtain a different picture ( from other millions of the same type ) we need some fantasy : in my example a friend that helped me to have a drop in the puddle….

I think that the second one is better…do you agree?

When a camera is old?

I have an Olympus OMD E-M5 (2012)…and the question is: is it an old digital camera? Some days ago I think so, but nevertheless I took it during a rainy day…and below you can find my answer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Five ( 5! )  years is a lot of time for a camera’s digital life…my camera can “live” for some time yet…I think that we cannot follow  new cameras’ improvements. OK perhaps new cameras are better … but, before buying a new one, take a good look inside  your one.. and think before you buy: “do I really need a new camera?” Sometimes an “old” camera can still take good pictures…and we can save money. The worst comment I ever heard:”Now finally I can take good pictures with my new and up-to-date camera for which I paid a lot of money”. Noooo!!!! You can take good pictures with a little disposable camera too!
