Ten Years Gone

Ten Years Gone. Besides being one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs, it’s also the amount of time I have had this blog! My first post was an introduction of the start of my 365 photo project for 2011. I always wanted to do a 365 project and I was laid off from work at the time, so I thought…

My best planning is no planning

I headed out to a nearby park to attempt some photography of details of nature. The bulk of the fall color had already passed peak and I wasn’t expecting much in the way of color, so I had black and white on my mind. Maybe some textures of dead leaves or a nice bare tree. Probably the one drawback was…

Been a long time coming

I guess Christmas is over, LOL. Sorry for the looooong delay in posting. Life happens. With still not much to say, I will refresh this site with a couple new photos I recently shot at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC. Pictures of birds! Not my forte but, hey, they were willing subjects and it was fun for the moment. Shot…

Finding color on Mount Wood with my X-Pro2

I know, I have been a lazy poster. I do have to thank my own self for not even remembering I even have this blog. As I have noted in the past, job one for owning a blog is content, content, content. Without continuing content you cannot expect to get readers. Heck, my own motto in the past was, “If…

I’m ba-ack!

I know how much everyone has missed me since my last post, which seems like eons¬† ago. Okay, maybe it was eons ago but I have slowly began to crawl my way out of my photography hole in the interim. Blame it on bad weather, bad colds, busy day job, old house, or any number of modern day sidetrackers. Either…

Budget shooting with a Canon t6 Rebel

I received a Canon Rebel t6 camera outfit as a gift during Christmas. Yes, that’s right, a Canon t6 – no “i”. A total beginners outfit consisting of the red Rebel, an EF-S 18-55 IS kit lens, an EF 75-300 f4-5.6 III telephoto lens, and a nice matching red Canon bag. It is an attractive little beast but, as I mentioned,…

Right light, wrong place

    I live in a rundown town. I’ve mentioned quite a few times on this blog how I don’t live in a particularly photogenic place. I live in a small town in Pennsylvania that had its day a number of years ago. Once the steel and glass industry disappeared the town began to fade, not unlike most rust belt…

Hey that’s not a nature camera! Shooting trees with my Fujifilm X-Pro2.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a fantastic camera and the more I use it the more I like using it. But the XP2 is clearly marketed towards street and typical “rangefinder” type users. A modern Leica, if you will. And I purchased the camera to use it as such. I wanted a “rangefinder” style camera so I would purposely stick to…
