Jan 21 – Best of 2020 Sept to Dec Part 1

Good Riddance to 2020 and all the trips that were cancelled due to Covid – whilst we did manage some local Cape Town & Cape Province outings we were, to a very large extent, stuck at home – so photography was a lifesaver. I am amazed by the quantity that I took and the progress made with Lightroom too. Also Thank you to my mentor Mike Browne and his amazingly positive approach to life & photography. Also his weekly competitions and inspirational training videos. As he always says Cameras do not take photos, people do; and take for yourself – if someone else happens to like your photos that’s great, but always work for your own enjoyment.

So this is a random collection & selection of what I have been doing. I put them here mostly for myself as a record so that I can find these again easily. If you happen to like them that’s great too.

EQUIPMENT: Lumix Panasonic G9 bodies x 2; Lenses all Leica – 25mm prime f1.4, 8-18 zoom f2.8, 35-100 zoom f2.8, 42.5 Nocticon prime f1.2, 100-400 zoom F4-6.3;
