The Edge

Where to Visit

Anyone have any more good tips of places to go see around Oregon?  I mean I have a list a half mile long, but I’m always open for ideas!

*The Edge – Upper McCord Falls // Multnomah County*

The Edge… there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. ~ Hunter S Thompson

This shot was taken by Britta, across the way and up the trail a bit.  I had to scurry down the log you see to the right of me from the trail.  It’s really not as bad as it looks, but I was out of battery in my camera so I don’t have a view from the ledge.  Next time 😉

More Fun


Been going strong here in New Orleans, but I wanted to quickly share a shot from back in Illinois that was taken with the new OM-D.  It’s really been a great addition to the arsenal, and a breeze to learn.  Anyone getting in to serious photography, or just looking to get great images straight out of the camera, should take a serious look at the E-M5.

Chicken in the Window

A shot from the farm, a cold chicken sitting in the window.  Today’s post is a short one, because we’re heading out to the swamp!  Roll tide.

Olympus OM-D E-M5

Uh oh, new toys!  As size and compactness become more of an influence in my photography, I’ve begun looking for a solution that can be a ‘always with me’ style setup.  After pouring over reviews for days, the system to go with became pretty apparent, in the Olympus OM-D E-M5.  Not only is it a beautiful design, taking style tips from the original OM-D series, but it takes absolutely stunning images.  Don’t mind the dust, as it’s already been going out with me in my bag, but here are some first images of the kit.

All the menu items you could need are quickly accessible.

I’ll be writing up a more in depth review in the coming weeks, but I wanted to share a sample image to display the awesome images coming out of this little powerhouse.  Taken at ISO 1250, don’t mistake the falling snow for noise.
