365-345 Me and about a thousand other people

I made a visit into downtown Pittsburgh today to check on a place that I need to visit later in the week. Since I have to go there early during morning rush I wanted to be sure of where I needed to go and park. While I was there today I thought I would easily be able to get a few…

365-344 When I was cool

There was a time when I was cool, or at least thought I was. I had long hair, played guitar and was in good shape. I was a rocker with torn jeans and boots. Cowboy boots to be specific. Although more associated with the wild west and country music, there was a time when cowboy boots were rock-n-roll. I had a few…

365-343 Potpourri photo day

I took a variety of photos today so I may as well post a few.  Other than that I don’t have much to say, so I’ll just get into the descriptions, starting with some photos of a wooden pallet (I know, I’m grasping) taken with my Super-Takumar 50mm lens. I think these were taken around f/2 to 2.8. I warmed them up a…

365-342 Creative vacancy

I just haven’t been overly thrilled with any of my work lately. Maybe it’s the time and location restraints of my job or maybe it’s the short days and dreary weather. I’m not sure. I do know that because of the above reasons I have been thinking that I have to work quick and get a photo by the middle…

365-340 Follow the light(s)

A dreary rainy day of getting up early, going to work, drive around in mud, and hanging out for a few hours before it was decided that the weather wasn’t going to get any better and heading home. A half day off! A good day to get a very much needed haircut and have a relaxing lunch with my wife. Afterwards we did some light…

365-339 Excuse me while I…

I don’t often show the “big picture” too often, instead focusing on details, but today I thought I would show a nice dawn sky. The color was beautiful from my unobstructed view high on the hill this morning. I usually don’t take too many photos until it gets light enough to handhold the camera, unless I want to intentionally blur…

365-338 Across the street

Todays photos were taken across the street from each other in, shall we say, a rougher area of town. As much as I like being in nice environments, I do tend to veer towards some seedier sections of cities for my photography. I just find more interesting subjects there. The “unstructured” lifestyle in those areas leads to sometimes odd or strange…

365-337 Over Under Sideways Down

A little nod to the Yardbirds. Back to nature today. I took a slew of unrelated photos today, all before 9:00 a.m.. Starting with a near dark abstract in my driveway and finishing up with some frosted plants near work (we had to wait for the frost to melt before anybody could work). But it was this milkweed plant that I experimented on by…

365-336 My world and my ashtray

In case you haven’t noticed I’ve been stuck on a work project that has been keeping me in basically one spot from dark to dark the past few days. I apologize for the abundance of job site photos but I have to work with what I got. And that isn’t much. Mud doesn’t make for nice photos. 😉 As for…

365-335 Cool on the hill

Ah, December. The last month of my 365! If there is one thing I learned during this project, it’s knowing that there is always a picture out there. I go out most days not knowing what I’ll shoot or where, yet at the end of the day I have a photo. Sometimes more than one. They may not all be award…
