A Nice Place to Shoot - E-M5, 5 images

Carlton Gardens is my favorite spot to visit on lunch breaks or after work. It always has plenty of intriguing visuals around for me to practice on.

It has a few fountains, fun for practicing with filters and different shutter speeds:

E-M5,1/5,  ISO 200, f/11, Olympus 45mm 1.8

E-M5, 1/500, ISO 200, f/5.6, Panasonic 45-175mm at 125mm

There are always a few odd characters hanging around the Gardens.

This bloke was playing with the puppy and pretending to throw it in the pond but I don't think it belonged to him. This shot was serendipitous as I still had my shutter speed set to 1/5 for some fountain shots:

E-M5, 1/15, ISO 200, f/6.3, Olympus 45mm 1.8

The flora is beautiful! The strelitzia have been putting on a nice show lately:

E-M5, 1/250, ISO 200, f/1.8, Olympus 45mm 1.8

This shot I am not too sure about; I was playing around with the camera, taking shots that would capture the Exhibition Hall entirely in bokeh. People kept passing across the lit fountain and I waited for a good moment:

E-M5, 1/640, ISO 200, f/5.6, Olympus 45mm 1.8


Here is another shot of the Hochgurtel Fountain with ye olde X100. It is a photogenic place, very hard to resist. I'm hoping for another golden afternoon like this with my E-M5:

X100, 1/250, IOS 400, f/8.0, 35mm

Thanks for viewing, sharing pictures is cathartic!
