First day of spring 2015

First day of spring 2015 means more pictures of snow. This season is a non-stop kodak moment. And by they way today's kids have no idea what is 'kodak moment'.

These images came out of my new Olympus OM-D E-M5 || [the most idiotic name for] camera. So far I am very happy with what it can do. It is great improvement comparing to my ancient Panasonic GH2. I only wish Oly was somewhat bigger in size. It is too tiny for my hands.

Evening at Cafe Grumpy

Here is a recipe how to stay alone in New York City.

Cafe Grumpy asks visitors to avoid using laptops to promote inter-human communication. But there are always more important things in life just one swipe or scroll away.

Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens

This is probably the very best Canon's portrait lens that stays in my bag most of the time because I usually shoot with 70-200. I am literally crying that I am letting this lens go but I shot less than dozen frames with it in a couple years.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens

This is my second most useful lens. When it is not 70-200 I reach for beautiful 50mm/1.2.
