As I wrap up my last log post for 2012, I find myself in India with my family. With a new location many photographic opportunities should present themselves. While traveling here we made our way to Heidelberg, Germany. I managed a few photo's there, but as always when one travels with family your attention has to be on them as well. Below are the photo's to end the year. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and view my photographs.
December 25 Calgary International Airport. The deicing machine sprays the wings of our plane.
December 26 Heidelberg, Germany at the home of my wife's Cousin Biju. I noticed this bowl of oranges on the counter and take an image. A little post in Snapseed for the Photo of the Day.
These two photo's were taken using the Canon 7D and the 24-70 mm lens at 6400 ISO, 1/25 sec and f3.2 handheld. The sky came out a wonderful colour in the first and I used the arch for the Christmas market to frame the castle in the second.
I also had the unique opportunity to attend the showing of an exhibition entitled "The Birth of Photography" at the Reiss-Englehorn-Museen. Here they had the original photo that started photography by Joseph Niepce in 1826. Seeing the original of this remarkable photo and the story behind it gave me a better appreciation of it. I purchased the book of the exhibition as there were many great original pieces there and it was special to see them in person.
