Farmers Market at Lakeline Mall

Things at work have really gotten pretty hectic lately, and it has been taking more of my attention than photography. It is also the hottest time of the year right now, and being outside for any length of time can only occur early in the morning, or after dinner in the evening. I really intended to get out and shoot something – anything – this weekend, but I simply found myself driving around and not even getting my camera out of the car.

I stayed up very late last night to watch the live NASA coverage on the internet of the landing of the Curiosity on Mars. What an exciting thing to watch!  As a result, though, I am very tired this evening.

No shooting this weekend, and dog tired from work and from Martian activity, but I felt like should put up a new post at least every 5 days or so (most bloggers update every day, and sometimes multiple times in a day). I suppose I should update my blog more often, but really, this is just a placeholder for something more “professional” when I eventually retire from engineering. In the meantime, my web site is simply a method for me to post the photos that I choose to share – kind of like an online scrapbook.

We had friends over to our house for a Dinner Party on Saturday evening, and I had my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera out, and I did get photos of everyone, and not all them are simple “snapshots”. I thought I might put them here, but now I’ve changed my mind.

Anyway, here are a few photos that I took when Barb and I went to the Farmer’s Market at Lakeline Mall on Saturday morning, July 7, 2012.

All of these photos were taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera with the Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4 lens. I shot all of these in Aperture Priority mode.

  1. I need to get out to a farmer’s market pretty soon. A nice opportunity to capture some great color like you did.

    1. Andy, get there early, as it gets hot pretty quick on that asphalt pavement. The white roofs of those tents made GREAT diffusers!

  2. Now I want a waffle 😉 Those jalapeno peppers look just great. Beautiful color and contrast and the angle is pleasing. I am so in awe of that 25mm. It’s a lovely lens.

    And now you have reminded me that I have to make a farmers market trip this coming weekend 😉

    1. Those jalapenos tasted great, too! The Panasonic Leica 25mm lens has is a very nice lens, but it does make s a few noises that none of my Olympus lenses make. It almost sounds like the shutter was released when in the lens begins to move to find its focus. It’s not really bothersome, but none of the Olympus lenses do that. It does take sharp pictures, and can produce a very nice bokeh (but I didn’t use it wide open at the farmers market – there was LOTS of hot Texas summertime sun bouncing off of the pavement).
