Valentine’s Day In Shockoe Slip

with 2 comments

Mattie and I spent Valentine’s Day and night in Shockoe Slip in Richmond, Va. We were on our way back from West Point, Va., and it’s tough not to spend the night in Shockoe when we are driving through. We watched the Daytona 500 while in several different establishments, and had dinner in the Hard Shell. It’s a great restaurant. Here’s a few photos with the Olympus E-P1 and 17mm f2.8.

Night Moves – Shockoe Slip

leave a comment »

This is part of my series on Shockoe Slip in Richmond, Va. that I shot on Friday and Sunday. I don’t carry a tripod so all of the photos from the weekend are handheld. Shooting at night in the city means slow shutter speeds and high ISOs .

The Olympus E-P1, which was the only camera I used over the weekend, has in-body stabilization which certainly helps when you are shooting at some of the slow shutter speeds that I was using like 1/10 second. Slow shutter speeds make night’s move.

Shockoe Slip Places

leave a comment »

Mattie and I love going to Shockoe Slip in downtown Richmond. We like staying at the Berkeley Hotel and can have a ton of fun within a two-block walk. That’s the key to Shockoe Slip – you can walk everywhere. The night life and restaurants are great.

Here are a few more photos from one of my late night walks. All of these photos are from the alleys in Shockoe Slip. When I stood in front of the wall in the second photo, I couldn’t help but think about Tom & Jerry.

Anyway, there’s nothing special about the locations. It’s just a place, void of people, that caught my eye. All photos were shot with the Olympus E-P1.

Daytime Walk In Richmond

with one comment

Here’s part two of a series of photos I will post this week from my trip this past weekend to Richmond and Irvington, Virginia. All of the photos were shot with the Olympus E-P1.

The E-P1 is great for street shooting. It’s smaller and just as quiet as my Leica.

Night Walk In Richmond

leave a comment »

One of my favorite things to do is go for a walk at night in the downtown area of a city and shoot photos. Most of the time I go out after midnight. I’ve done it in New York, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh and Tokyo to name a few. This past weekend, I was in Shockoe Slip in Richmond, Va.

Mattie and I spent the night there on Friday and Sunday night. Saturday night we were in Irvington, Va. in the Northern Neck. We were visiting family on Saturday and celebrating by birthday on Sunday. Actually, my birthday was yesterday and today. That’s a story for later.

Anyway, I’ll be posting some photos from the weekend on the blog this week. I’ll started with a few from one of my midnight walks. All of the photos were shot with the Olympus E-P1 and 17mm F2.8 lens. It was the only camera and lens I took with me. All of these photos were shot at ISO 1600 or 3200. This is the kind of stuff I bought the E-P1 for and it worked great. Check back every day this week for more photos from the series. They will probably get more odd as the week goes on.
