Panama City is the capital and largest city in Panama. It is located on the Pacific side of the Panama Canal. It has a population of about 1.5 million people and is the political and administrative centre of the country of Panama. Interestingly enough it is one of the top 5 places in the world to retire too according to International Living Magazine.

This morning I hired a driver to show me some of the “touristy” sites in and around Panama City. It was a beautiful morning in the city and I did a lot of walking. Here is an image from down at the waterfront.

A shot taken out of my hotel room window here in Panama. Yesterday I changed hotels since my original hotel was simply too far from where I was working. This new hotel is much more convenient. 

Favourite Images of 2017

The 2nd image of my favourites of 2017 is a shot of the old Caledonia Mill in Caledonia, Ontario.
 
I shot this on a very windy day and this particular exposure is 2 minutes long. I used the Big Stopper from Lee Filters since I shot this in the afternoon.
 
This mill was built in 1846 and is the last timber framed water powered mill along the Grand River in Ontario. There were rumours of its demise in 2017 but it still stands.
 
Shot on the Canon 5D MK III with the 17-40mm lens. Shot at ISO 100, f22 and 120 second exposure.

Super Seven for 2017

I belong to a wonderful group of photographers known as OFFBEAT. (offbeatphoto.ca)

Every year we are asked to post our “Super Seven” or our seven favourite images from the year.

These are mine.

 

Old Church

I am currently in Germany for a couple of days. This afternoon I had an opportunity to go for a short walk in the village of Bulstringen. There is this amazing old Evangelical church in town. I could not find any historic info on it, but it is very cool!

Old Cotton Mill

I am working near Danville, Virginia over the weekend, and this afternoon I had an opportunity to spend some time walking the awesome river walk along the Dan River. There is an old, abandoned cotton mill in Danville, and with the cloudy sky, just made it look even more decrepit.
