About seen objects
What and Why
seen objects is my photo weblog, or photoblog. I have a regular weblog, Martin Kenny .com, but massive self-censorship stops me from posting there more frequently. As I've been interested in photography for a long time, it seemed like a natural thing to create a photoblog as a way of getting around my self-censorship problem, and enforcing a more frequent update policy.
I plan to post one photograph per day. While I'd like to post a photo that was taken that day, realistically I'm much more likely to post a recently-taken photo, and sometimes resort to older photos. When I've been sick, too busy, or otherwise occupied, I'll try and back-post photos to fill in the gaps.
As for a theme, there's not currently a specific theme. Whatever takes my fancy might make it in here — possible reasons include: it reminds me of an emotion; it's of cultural or historical interest; it just looks cool.
seen objects is stuck together with string and glue.
Since early September 2004, most photos have been taken with my new Nikon D70 digital-SLR. I can't say enough good things about the D70. Although I loved the IXUS, the D70 feels like 1989 again (the year I got my first SLR). Precise control over focus is the biggest thing for me (the IXUS' weak point was predicatable focus control). While I can't keep the D70 in my pocket, I do try to keep it around my neck, whenever I go anywhere.
Canon IXUS V2
Before September 2004, all photos were taken with a Canon IXUS V2 2-megapixel compact camera. It used to stay in my pocket from dawn to dusk.
Most photos are taken in and around Adelaide, South Australia.
