    im semi new here, and havent done an intro yet, so...



    im eliot, and i live in austin tx
    ive got oly e30, oly ep3, oly em5, fuji x100, sony nex5n
    43lenses: 12-60, 70-300
    m43 lenses: o12/o17/p20/cctv25/holga25/o45/o12-50
    nex: 16(and adapters)/18-55(i think it is)

    im over on mu43 as Bokeaji, as well

    someone has pointed out that i dont have a STYLE or LOOK... photos from the same walk will often turn out looking like they were taken by 2 totally different people and cameras, but oh well :)
    i love to process... too much most would say ;)

    i get a great deal of satisfaction moving sliders around... if only life were made of sliders...

    ummmm... i dont know what else to say really, im usually more wanting a crazy amount of sample photos from new people than a copy of their facebook profile!
    ...so heres some pics!

    in case youve missed some of my photo postings:



    and here are a few more!

    ok, so a lot of these are actually pretty similar... im in a certain mode from being obsessed with MrTangobee's ricoh grd street movie

    Eliot, many thanks for your "official" intro and here's a second welcome from me!

    I'm particularly fond of that second photo of yours - perfectly framed and the conductor's gesture couldn't have been better if you'd directed him. I look forward to getting to know your work and you.

    Forget about what other people say about your lack of style!:drinks: I don't think one should even think about those things but just do what comes "naturally" - sliders and all.:wink:

    Welcome Eliot,
    I love your wacky style of post...your personality really shines through. And I love your photos. That one of the guy stocking the cooler in the grocery store is pretty freaking awesome, but there's plenty of other good ones here.... I hate to single one out. But I'd print and hang that one.
