During the evenings I went out with a 28mm f/1.8 lens to capture a bit of night life.  On a full frame digital body with good low light performance it’s the perfect tool for this kind of stuff.

My journey through the Basque country continues.  I exist on tapas and wine.  The weather has been perfect save for a rain storm last night.  The leaning houses were near a small river.  They remind me of Kandinsky’s early work. candid street girls

I Awoke in Bilbao

A Still River in Bilbao

This morning I awoke in Bilbao to perfect weather.  The sun was out and the air was still.  You might notice the most famous attraction Bilbao is AWOL.  I have photos of the Guggenheim and will post them later.  However, I managed to find a bunch of pipers, something you don’t expect here in the Basque country.

Are my glances of this city random, is there a pattern, or am I just lost in the fog?

Many of those who follow my photography have an interest in black and white conversions of digital images. The native output of a digital camera is color, enabled by a Bayer filter built into the sensor. What is interesting about black and white conversions is the photographer is able to change the color response of the image after the fact by manipulating color channels prior to mapping those colors to greyscale tones. With film the usual method of accomplishing this task was with colored filters or using film with a different color response. It’s beginning to break down, but there is resistance in the fine art world to digital black and white. candid street girls
