Storm Warning.

It’s been raining off and on around here for the last few days. It’s a nice break from the sweltering heat, even if it brings humidity.

This construction area is right next to where I park at school now.

A Matter of Perspective.

Kick Back.

Or without?

Forced March.

“It’s good for you!” is my wife’s refrain whenever we go on a family walk. She walks a whole heckuva lot faster than I do and up till recently, I’d quicken my pace to keep up (and she was the one pushing the stroller!).

This most recent trip, I wised up. I put my son in the backpack carrier and I grabbed my camera. Whenever something looked photo-worthy to me, I stopped. Sure, we walked a lot further than I would have on my own, but I never got really tired. And I got some fun snapshots, to boot.

It’s a Bird! It’s a…

Up in the Sky

It doesn’t hurt to look up from time to time. It’d be interesting in the comments to list as many songs as we can that talk about airplane travel…

Things Are Looking Up.

I gotta say, I’m pretty pleased with the lineup of images comin’ this week. Some portraits, some snapshots (like this one) and some found photos, to boot.

Stay tuned!

Back in the Old Days.

Wish You Were Here-9146.jpg

My folks have a house out on the Mobjack Bay and we took the kids out to visit over the Memorial Day weekend. The house is great for forgetting there’s a world where you have to work and there’s no end to the opportunities to shoot pictures like these.

With a little post-process trickery, I tried to make these look a little old ’cause I thought it’d give them some character.

Expanding My Horizons.

Shot this at the playground with my daughter the other afternoon. The sky wasn’t this forbidding and there’s a playground and tarmac beneath these trees in the direct foreground, but without knowing it, this seems like somewhere else. Not a quarter of a mile from my house.

Did this with a little fiddling from some Lightroom presets I scored here.

Working the Land(scape).

I’ve been looking at a lot of work by other people and, as I’ve mentioned here before, I’m not really all that thrilled with my landscape photography. Beyond that, I have this Holga camera that seems underutilized. I was truly inspired by this fellow to just kinda shoot stuff with the camera and see where it took me.

With all that in mind, I went traipsing around the city back to some of the places that I thought, “That’d make a great photograph.” as I’d passed them before and grabbed a few.

I scanned them and then toned them the way I might’ve if I’d been printing them and I kinda like what I got, although I’d probably print a film border and a bit of a vignette. Whatever the case, here are 4:

It’s interesting how the lens bends things in its sight. It’s an aberration I wasn’t expecting but I’m really growing to love when I see straight lines captured.

Bubbles.

It’s the one thing that you can’t see in this photograph that, in my opinion, makes it matter. She’s got a little bottle of bubbles in one hand and the wand-thingy in the other. I should have spent the entire day shooting this and variations of it, but at the time (like 3 years ago), I had a different aesthetic.

The shiny dress and beautiful day were out of my control but add an interesting dimension.

The Big Wide Open.

IMGP6447.jpg

Ran into a friend who needed a reason to get out of a prior engagement so we galumphed around near the river and did a little bit of sightseeing.

I’d been looking at this blog today and got a wild hair. I’d been lamenting to Joe that I wished I could pull off stuff like his so I figured there was no better way to get better at it than to try when the opportunity arose. This was the opportunity.

Landscapes are hard when you’re used to looking at people. I’m not sure I’m in love with this ’cause it’s kind of a grab, but as practice, it’s worth the click.
