I love the fact that the minimum focus distance is only 1 cm with Ricoh GRD IV. That makes this camera very cool device for close-ups. By shooting so close to your subject you can achieve nice background bokeh and the small sensor still allows enough DoF to get sharp shots.
I have been lately heavily into B&W photography. Nowadays, every time I shoot a color shot I have a need to convert it to a B&W capture. And I have been shooting in-camera B&Ws a lot lately. It also seems so that others like my B&W work more than my color shots. Recently five of my latest B&W shots have been in Explore in Flickr. My shots have been in Explore now and then but this kind of explore rush hour is not normal for my photos. Not that I am that much into Explore but of course it is nice that people are interested in my photos.
This shots has got 26 500 views in Flickr in less than a day. All I can say is Thank You.
