Living in Dunedin is a blessing. With a myriad of historic buildings in the centre city, rugged moorland, charming forests and beautiful coastlines, I’m never short of things to point a camera at. Port Chalmers, a short drive from the city centre, provides the backdrop for these images. Happily, my visit coincided with that of a cruise ship, so there was actually a nice boat by the wharf to meander into the pictures.
The photos you see here were all taken on my Olympus PEN Mini E-PM1, with the phenomenal 15mm f8.0 body cap lens attached. Small and simple, it lets me focus on composition by removing some variables from the equation: no zoom, no aperture adjustment, and no need to adjust focus between shots (except for near and far). Small and simple: the one thing saving me from being engulfed by a myriad photographic options. That makes me smile.
