Some Olympus E-PL1 love for #107 by Will Storr….
Please find attached a submission for your Daily Inspiration.
I recently came across your site when looking up info on the EPL-1 I’d just bought – actually I couldn’t believe how great it was and wondered if there was anyone else out there who’d noticed. Since finding your review, your site has become the first I visit with my cup of tea every morning.
I hope these images are good enough to make the cut. I’ve just come back from a holiday to Malaysia, during which my EPL-1 was a constant companion. I used it with a Panny f1.7 and a Voigtlander 35mm f.14. I also managed to pick up a second hand Voigt 12mm in Kuala Lumpur. I thought it was the new one and was convinced I had a bargain, but it turns out it was the old version of the lens and I probably paid a bit too much. Anyhow, no regrets – it makes a for a great 24mm on the EPL-1.
I’ve been a print journalist for ten years, by the way, but am slowly trying to broaden my skills into photography. Some more of my work can be seen on my site www.willstorr.com (although I’ll warn you, as photography sites go, it really doesn’t get more basic).
I hope I’ve sent these images as to your specifications. They should be all under 1mb, so I think they’re small enough. I couldn’t see an option on iPhoto for resizing, but I’m hoping as I chose to export them as small files it’ll be OK (I still can’t get my head around the file system on Aperture).
Many thanks for taking a look at these, and for all your hard work on the site. It’s so rare to find a website on any subject that actually feels friendly, if you know what I mean.
