My week began in snowy blur. We got something like 10" of snow the day our event was to begin. Because of this, the Panasonic GM1 I previously wrote about didn't make it here to MN. Nope, my friend's flight got cancelled and in the mayhem of switching flights his luggage got left/lost in Denver (thankfully it was found and returned to it's owner). No big deal, I have a lovely Olympus EM1 and for the event I installed the 20mm f1.7 and a Black Rapid Metro strap and carried it with me at all times. 

Many have written about problems with the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 on Oly cameras.  Problems range from banding, to blooming in light to slow autofocus.  I did a few trial snaps and thought it was OK. The shots from the weekend were mostly about fun anyway. As a back up, I threw the 17mm f1.8 in the back pack just in case. By the end of the several days, it was just extra weight carried over 5 days.  

Coffee got me through the get home 1:00-1:30AM and up again at 6:30AM. This one is from Angry Catfish in Mpls, MN

This event is put on by my place of employment and we have a paid photography staff, so I just had fun and didn't worry about any of my shots or getting anything in particular.

Before I get to the gallery, just thought I'd put up a picture of some of my pictures from last summer's Alaska fatbike trip. All but one of those images above are from that trip and from either my OMD EM5 or my now long gone Nikon D700.

So....With that, here are some images snapped with the OMD EM1 with the lovely Panasonic 20mm f1.7. All were processed in VSCO with a 1-click Portra 400 film preset. I am just recovering from the week long festivities so I spent zero time editing these.  I was in a film mood since I also shot film, Delta 3200, at one of the parties but I haven't developed the 1 roll yet.  All in all though, I was very pleased with having such a small and capable little camera at my side at all times.
