A trip through the woods, 23 August 2022

After weeks of cloudless skies, this morning we awoke to a sky full of wispy cirrus clouds. It was the perfect weather to take out the full spectrum Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter, on our daily walk to the beach. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/a-trip-through-woods-23-august-2022.html

A little experimentation with image stacking, 1 August 2022

As planned over the weekend, on Monday I wanted to take the Olympus Pen mirrorless to the beach and try a little image stacking, making multiple exposures on a single frame. This is possible on the Olympus with the Experimental Lens Kit, which I had bought specifically for this technique. By setting the shutter speedContinue reading “A little experimentation with image stacking, 1 August 2022”

Lost Street Art by Dalaiama in the aldeia do Meco, 1 August 2022

Lost Street Art by Dalaiama in the aldeia do Meco, 1 August 2022 I was saddened to discover that one of my favourite pieces of street art in Meco, by the artist Dalaiama had been permanently lost following the destruction of the building on which it had been painted.

Finally the wind died down, 30 July 2022

After a few frustrating days, the wind died down and my plan to take the full spectrum Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter to the beach was a possibility.  Thankfully, the early afternoon sun made the trees glow in the sunlight and the photographs of our walk to the beach exceeded myContinue reading “Finally the wind died down, 30 July 2022”

Late afternoon in the woods, 26 July 2022

The original plan was to take the full spectrum Lumix and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter to the beach, but it was so windy I didn’t want to take any risks with the camera, I’ve already cleaned out one large grain of sand from the sensor and I didn’t want to go through that experienceContinue reading “Late afternoon in the woods, 26 July 2022”

Concrete pipes in infrared, 3 May 2022

A couple of weeks ago I took out the the 2€ #shittydigital camera and photographed some long-abandoned concrete pipes.  The plan was to use the modified Canon A1400 for some digital infrared photographs, but the weather was not good enough for infrared photography. This morning the weather was ideal, so before our fortnightly shop IContinue reading “Concrete pipes in infrared, 3 May 2022”

Vintage Street Art in the aldeia do Meco, 26 August 2021

The aldeia do Meco is filled with some really old street art. These images are from the first wall I ever saw in Meco. On the whole the work has remained untouched, but there is a new section of wall, and I’m sure that at least one piece has been lost under the new render.Continue reading “Vintage Street Art in the aldeia do Meco, 26 August 2021”

The house on the hill, 24 August 2021

Over 20 years go someone decided to build a luxury home on the hill overlooking the road from Alfarim into Meco. Sadly, they chose to do this without the necessary permits and the council halted the work. The house, little more than a frame but a good indication of the home it could have been,Continue reading “The house on the hill, 24 August 2021”

Vintage Street Art in the aldeia do Meco, 24 August 2021

The aldeia do Meco is filled with some really old street art. Along the boundary of the village is a wall that over the years has been used by a variety of artists. Some is an early attempt at modern Street Art typography,  other work is best described as graffiti — slogans coarsely sprayed ontoContinue reading “Vintage Street Art in the aldeia do Meco, 24 August 2021”
