Project 52: Week 09

And just like that, the warm weather is back. I didn't realize how much I missed just walking around the city and shooting, without a set purpose, and be pleasantly surprised with the photos that come back.

This time of the year is fantastic for dramatic lighting, and Project 52 and my little Olympus PEN mini is just perfect to experiment with harsh shadows and highlights.

This week's shot is exactly one of those random moments, that I just happened to have a camera in hand to capture. It also happens to be the window front of one of my favourite diners in the city, The Lakeview in the west end. Three words: Apple Pie Shake.

On a side note, I can't explain how similar shooting with the E-Pm1 is to shooting with film. The only difference is that I have a preview of what I'm getting, but because of the nothing-to-write-home-about screen of this camera, what you see on the screen is rarely accurate to the actually photo recorded, in terms of colour and dynamic range. I hope to expand on this topic in following posts...
