Sometimes just for fun.

Quick, what is this? Of course, a wheel chair for your tight-assed friends! Sometimes the punchline fits the picture and believe it or not, that's what I was thinking when I took this shot of a fold-up garden cart at a local nursery. Sometimes the reason to take a photo need only be whimsical. Sign in to see full entry.

Try a nudie self portrait.

Digital is the new Polaroid. But one must be careful, posting something on the internet is about a unsecure as things get. That is why I decided to leave my underwear on for this one. As I said before, once you scan an old photo, even a black and white, it is now digital. This study finds me... Sign in to see full entry.

And now for something completely different

When I was younger, I used to draw a lot. In Jr. college I took an art class. At the time I was a great admirer of Salvador Dali. While I could never come close to his skill, I crudely imitated facets of it. This creation is called, well, it doesn’t have a title, so lets call it “the apple of my I”...

Don’t forget your zoom

Zoom lenses, or zoom capability are some of the greatest advancements in photography. Back in the day, when I had a Mamiya Sekor 35mm film camera, the only way to change a scene was to run back and forth, or clumsily screw the telephoto or the wide angle on, then still have to run back and forth to...

Different strokes

Like an artist varying brush strokes, the photographer can also achieve different moods with but one subject. I found a small waterfall that caught my eye. It was in a very deep dark part of the woods and I wondered if it would show up at all. So I set my ISO at 100 and the shutter at 1/15 th second... Sign in to see full entry.

Tell the story

I can tell you that my son worked on motorcycles, ATVs and such in our garage when he was in high school rather than flip burgers, but does that sentence really convey the story as well as this photo of him amid his many projects? I can also tell you he liked to ride from an early age and was always... Sign in to see full entry.

Who says it has to be digital?

These next two were taken on film. You remember that don’t you? You had to wind the camera between shots, oh don’t forget to set the ASA or you will ruin a whole roll. There was no preview. Serious photographers took notes on shutter speeds, f/stops, subject matter and then studied the results. Of... Sign in to see full entry.

Look closer

Sometimes the most interesting photos are the ones you don’t see at first. The other day I was shooting a bunch of abandoned buildings that as a kid, I remembered people renting for the summer or temporary workers lived there as well. They are all mostly fallen down now, but something about “ghost... Sign in to see full entry.

Seize the day

Some days are made for photographers. Today was such a day. The fall colors were on display under a bright blue sky punctuated with a few wispy clouds. I have always wanted to go on a photo expedition on such a day and today was elected. One of our fall duties is to close up our lake cabin for the... Sign in to see full entry.

Stand and deliver.

Sometimes you have to look around for the best place to get your shot. Recently at a Radio Control Car race, I wanted to get the whole track into the photo, only from the ground level it just didn’t show up right. I could have gone onto the driver’s stand, but that shot would have exceeded my... Sign in to see full entry.
