I have always been fascinated by abstract art but when I was young, I very mistakenly thought it was something people did when they couldn’t make something realistic. I assumed they gave up and went with something abstract. I was dead wrong.

I was one of the lucky fellows who received one of the pre-production models of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 X camera bodies. That was just about six months ago. I primarily ran tests with it the first six weeks I had it, partly because I had to keep it a secret that I had one. Once the camera was out in the wild, I began shooting with it almost exclusively, only using my Olympus OM-D E-M1 MK II as backup. Then, last month I traded in the MK II for a second Model X and that is all I use.
