Earlier this year I was in a quandary about a Canon 7 rangefinder I had purchased. It was a fine camera and worked very well but it didn’t quite spark a light.. I liked it and had yearned for one for a while but I didn’t really need it. I wrote about it here on … Continue reading Prominent stands out
Some more pictures from the lost roll I had developed recently. This wasn’t some lucky find in a thrift store camera purchase this was just my own failing mixed with some significant life changes. If you haven’t seen Pt 1 you can read it here. The film was intended to re-start my home developing which … Continue reading Pictures from a lost roll – Pt 2
“So how does a roll get lost” I hear you ask, well…. The plan was to get back into developing my own film. I had all the equipment I needed and had bought some developer to do it with. But I needed something to develop. I didn’t want to use an “important” roll of film … Continue reading Pictures from a lost roll – Pt 1
In my last post (here) I shared some photos I took of my youngest daughter during a trip we took as a short break while I had some work to do. I said I would follow up with some more photos from that trip. The trip came about because I had some activity at work … Continue reading On location in the California countryside #2
A few weeks ago a work commitment meant I was not going to be able to give my young daughter the attention she needs during the day and I would need to focus 100% on this task. My wife is in a very high pressure job and as a result is usually more absorbed in … Continue reading On location in the California countryside
A few years ago my wife took me to D23 which is the Disney equivalent of Comic-Con. It is full of people in extensive and accurate Cosplay outfits and there is everything a Disney-phile could possibly want to see. On this occasion they had an area dedicated to the proposed new ‘Star Wars Land’ feature … Continue reading Galaxy’s Edge
Golden hour in my neighborhood plus a vintage lens helped me break through a inspiration block. Continue reading Lock-down in my neighborhood… searching for inspiration
The area where I have done most of my lunchtime photo walks over the last few years, close to where my office building was, consists of a main street filled with typical restaurants and stores. The buildings are more interesting than most streets in this area and one of those buildings is the Nicholl Building where the Motion Picture & Television Fund health service is situated.
I have not been able to find details of who designed the building but it has similar themes (at least in my eyes) to Meier’s Getty Center in Los Angeles.Continue reading “The Nicholl Building”
Whenever I visit aquariums (of which we have two great ones in this area) I am always drawn to the jellies (aka Jellyfish). There is something very meditative about watching them slowly drift about the tank, changing shape and generally just minding their own business.Continue reading “Jellies!”
I don’t do a lot of nighttime photography these days but where I have my desk set up for working from home during these times of isolation, I have a wall of prints of some of my favorite images. Two of these images I have mounted as a pair and I often look up at them as I am pondering an issue.
These are the two images and I am pleased with how they came out; I like the way the street lighting highlights the scene with the shadows towards the edge of the frame adding an air of mystery to what may be beyond.Continue reading “Night moves”
