- Digital Photo Gear -
I walk long distances, in all weather, so I like to carry light gear. I currently use a Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II. It is lightweight, has a small form factor, and performs well in low-light conditions.
In hard rains, my camera can be challenging to keep dry though, so I still use my smartphone now and then. I currently have an iPhone SE. I like it because it is very compact, even with a waterproof case.
- Analog Photo Gear -
In the early-80’s, when I was a student at the University of Alaska Anchorage and in their Alaska Wilderness Studies program, I used an Olympus XA 35mm rangefinder on my backpacking and mountaineering trips.
I have many fond memories associated with the camera: my spouse, our friends, our back-country trips, and our bring-your-own-slides shows. It was a different age and type of social media experience.
- Lightroom / Flickr Workflow -
I edit and upload selected photos to Flickr after each walk. I limit my Flickr posts to a few photos each day. When I am done uploading to Flickr, I post the complete album of my walk here. The photos are in chronological order, so you can take a virtual walk if interested.
I use a third-party service to monitor inappropriate copyright usage.
The photos I upload to Flickr often have captions. If the caption is a link, it will only be active in Flickr. Use a right-click to open the link in a new page.
I favor positive images and progressive politics. However, my photos are not necessarily endorsements; I prefer to let the viewer decide.
