ESA at A Human Adventure

Short time ago i posted a blog entry about ‘A Human Adventure’ That was about the world wide part of this exhibition: NASA.

But we dutchies had an extra part to this expo, about ‘ESA’ I guess other countries have some addition to, but with Andre Kuipers we have a big NASA celebrity. So here are the shots from that part of the expo. For my daughter this was better because there were interactive parts here wich she really likes, always at expo’s or musea. So a big bunch of shots here, hope it’s fun to watch if you ae interested in Space and spacetravel! For the dutch, go visit while you can!

All shot shere with the Olympus E-P1 + 14mm 1:2.5 Lumix ASPH. Shot with b&w preset at iso 1600.

NASA: A Human Adventure.

On saturday the 23th of november my daughter and i visited the expo NASA: A Human Adventure. The Jaarbeurs in Utrecht was hosting this expo. We made a day out of it going by train and have dinner in Hoog Catherijne afterwards. It was a great expo wich i can recommend to anyone with a interest for space or just basic human history. I brought the E-P1 along with the lumix 14mm. Well the camera was struggling to catch enough light, all is at 1600 iso with max aperture f4 to get steady shots with an compromise on dof. All is in black and white, the higher iso noise is better camouflaged in b&w. Again not my best, but as a serie it should provide an interesting look into this expo.

This blogpost consists of the NASA part of the expo wich is shown around the world. For the dutch there was an extra expo about ESA. I will show some pictures of this in a next blogpost.

Hotel Dullemond, Laag Soeren.

I have been at this ‘urbex/rural’ location before, Always wanted to go back. This evening it was darker as i hoped around the Hotel so had to do with iso 1600. The decision to make an B&W with toning came up in 3 seconds. So home again i loaded the files on my pc and started editing. Made a preset in Silver efex 2 wich i liked. I have shown a few of the serie on my Flickr account shortly after the visit, now decided to share all on my blog for you to see.

Lot’s of stories about ghost’s can be found on the internet, funny it is that we both felt like being watched shooting this series of photo’s, even the dog seemd spooked. You tell me how does that happen, because one reads about ghost’s and your mind plays with you, or………Anyways i do like my photo’s. Did manipulate some of them because the graffiti contained pure racistic and fascistic signs or remarks wich i really don’t agree with.

Used my Nikon D90 with 35mm 1.8dx.

Walls

Follow up on the ‘As seen around me’ project. Walls are everywhere. In this post a collection of walls in some form i saw in my neighbourhood. All shot with the Olympus E-P1 with the Lumix 14/2.5 asph. attached. Used a preset in the E-P1 for black and white conversion. Only post processing in PS consists of PT-lens actions for straightening etc. and off course border maker for the border. 1200px on the long side for blog.

Parking

Two different cars, two different photo’s, one location. These are taken near my home at the supermarket parking places. At night almost empty and good for photography. Still want to catch that Mercedes in that light during some rain. Shot with the Oly E-P1 and 14mm.

The Bottle.

Found this bottle this morning. The rain finally stopped and our dog needed his walk. Heineken is far from my favourite beer, but hey for some photo’s who cares. Shot with the E-P1 and 14mm 2.5. Used my in camera preset so what you see is OOF camera jpeg, just added the border. Taking the E-P1 along when going out of the house is starting to becom a habit, with the pancake easy.

Currently i am inspired by the use of the E-P1 and the 14mm 2.5, i share photo’s of stuff i see walking around. Almost all made with the b&w preset and OOC jpeg’s. On Flickr and FB i tag this ”As seen around me”. I think i will post on this blog with this theme in series, dunno how it will work out but seems on fb and flickr people like some of the shared shots. I think a blog is good for sharing series better than fb and flickr. So hang on and visit me more often(hahah, ah well).
