Today we celebrated the “OXI” 1940s Greece’s entrance to the WW2 against Italy and the axis.

Today I was brave enough to take along my Olympus EPL5 and instead of using the standard kit lens I took with me the OM manual ZUIKO 50mm f1.8 and Lens filter B+W kr 1.5 Skylight.

Problems I new I would face where:

  • manual focusing
  • 50mm is 100mm equivalent in m4/3
  • fast moving crouds / kids
  • lack of space to move and compensate the large focal length

Still I had confidence, I had no pressure I wanted 4-5 good shots and to be able to get some video footage (old Style) of the overall parade.

I think I managed it….

Another walk to the rainy Piraeus Port. This time I tried a new setup my Olympus EPL5 and the Minolta MD 50mm f2, along  a CPC Phase 2 SKY filter. All that with the use of a new MD-M4/3 adapter I had for some time and I hadn’t tried out.

Attiko Parko

Today I visited the Attikon Park, a great place to visit when you are in Athens. I was hopping for a great photo day as a sider to the whole experience. But the weather was rainy, rainy and cloudy. I did a lot of mistakes with my D3200 and the combo of 18-55Vr and the 50-200mm VR since I worried alot about my non-weatherproof gear.

Still i managed to have some great shots. Here is the first batch.

I start with the glorious bears, which seemed unaffected and In tune with this rainy weather.

I hope you Like them
