There seems to be something wrong with the linking to that last photo, I can't see the image...

Week 37 Theme 1: Peru trip, May 2013


Day 9 Folklorique
Date Taken: 2013-05-20 13:49:49 | Camera Model: NEX-7 | Lens: E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS | Focal Length: 55 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/6.3 | Exposure Time: 0.006 sec (1/160) | ISO: 100 | 35mm Equivalent: 82 mm

I'm slipping behind a little in the schedule, but here we are back in Cuzco in 2013. People are taking to the main square in Cuzco and armed with cute llamas (or are they alpacas?) and bright colour line up to fleece (see what I did there?) the tourists ...

Week 37 Theme 2 ultrawide aspect ratio


City view
Date Taken: 2013-05-20 17:08:36 | Camera Model: NEX-7 | Lens: E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS | Focal Length: 77 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/5.0 | Exposure Time: 0.008 sec (1/125) | ISO: 160 | 35mm Equivalent: 115 mm

I'm sticking with Peru for all the photos this week. This photo taken from a high point near Cuzco is in 20:9 format - the ratio used in my smartphone screen. On the right you can see some blocks of stone from the Inca buildings of a few hundred years ago.

Thanks Howard- that ultrawide looks impressive. The Nex-7 seems to have been a good travel camera.

Thanks! Yes, the previous year I had travelled with a NEX-3 so the experience with the -7 was so much better. It's a shame it was too soon to get the benefit of GPS from a linked smartphone, or the ability to transmit pictures wirelessly to phones. The lack of connectivity is quite limiting now. A great little camera though, and so lightweight compared to current Sony cameras.

Week 38 Theme 1: Peru trip, May 2013


Day 9 Inca walls
Date Taken: 2013-05-20 14:43:45 | Camera Model: NEX-7 | Lens: E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS | Focal Length: 55 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/7.1 | Exposure Time: 0.005 sec (1/200) | ISO: 100 | 35mm Equivalent: 82 mm

Before we move on away from Cuzco, here's one of the other major points of interest - the remains of Inca walls with massive granite blocks fitting perfectly together.

Week 38 Theme 2 ultrawide aspect ratio


Norwich market
Date Taken: 2021-09-17 13:24:52 | Camera Model: ILCE-7M3 | Lens: FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS | Focal Length: 33 mm | Mode: Aperture-priority AE | Aperture: f/11.0 | Exposure Time: 0.005 sec (1/200) | ISO: 100 | 35mm Equivalent: 33 mm

Here's a more contemporary example of ultrawide aspect ratio - back to 64:27 (= 21:9) and stitched from eight vertical frames to make one image.

Week 38 Theme 3 vintage digital


Sharing some photos
Date Taken: 2021-09-23 19:11:49 | Camera Model: DSLR-A900 | Lens: 24-105mm F3.5-4.5 | Focal Length: 24 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/3.5 | Exposure Time: 0.067 sec (1/15) | ISO: 800 | 35mm Equivalent: 24 mm

And a modern vintage digital photo - taken last night on a photowalk in Oxford with an A900 and the Minolta 24-105 zoom. This guy took a friendly interest in what we were doing and started looking for a photo to share on his phone. My wife thought that was me in the background but in fact it's Phil Wood so we may yet see some shots from him here before long.

Nice stich from Norwich - I may try to replicate it when I'm there next month.

Meanwhile, last night I managed an OOF one of you too.

Very nice (of the subject) - and I thought I was getting out of frame!

Enjoy Norwich, 'A Fine City'™.

Week 39 Theme 1: Peru trip, May 2013


Day 10 On the road to Machu Picchu
Date Taken: 2013-05-21 09:07:17 | Camera Model: NEX-7 | Lens: E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS | Focal Length: 55 mm | Mode: Program AE | Aperture: f/9.0 | Exposure Time: 0.003 sec (1/320) | ISO: 100

Or, Let sleeping dogs lie.

On this day we set out for Machu Picchu from Cuzco, the part of the trip that got cancelled in 2012. Not far out of Cuzco in San Sebastian is the Mercado Artesanal Inkaq Samanan. I like the array of textiles, the (I assume) mis-spelled 'Cosco', the child with a big pitcher of juice and the sleeping dog basking in the sun.
