Two shots in one

While I was browsing through some older files I came across some shots that I did last year of some berries. Out of about 20 different shots, I chose one I liked at the time and that was the end of it. I didn’t think about the other photos since. But while I was looking at the photos I saw…

December will be black and white month

In honor of a special announcement that I will make in a later post, I am going to post nothing but black and white images all month. Some may be new, some may be from the archives.¬†Yes, that’s right, no colorful holiday photos. But I will most likely have holiday theme photos later in the month and you’ll just have…

The party’s over, turn out the lights

A little break from my experiments. While I was in the park the other day trying to fulfill my artistic vision ūüėČ I took a few shots of this lonely swing set. I don’t know why, it was something to shoot but really¬†didn’t offer much as far as details or textures. Regardless, I took a few shots, trying to play…

I can’t explain

I can’t explain much about this photo other than I took it through the window of an old storefront in Wheeling. It was in a large building and touted itself as an antiques store but it just looked like a bunch of useless junk sitting in an old warehouse. I think it was still in business, or at least recently…

Ouch

I had a nice long three-day weekend and didn’t perform any photography to speak of. It was a beautiful weekend also, weather-wise. But the reason I didn’t get to shoot anything is because I was in pain all weekend. I don’t know what happened and can’t remember any event that triggered it but my right hip, knees, lower back, chest,…

Euro Love

It’s inevitable that when I view a gallery of someones trip to Paris on a photo forum, I’ll see a photo of the numerous padlocks¬†attached to¬†a bridge. Known as love locks, they are meant to symbolize everlasting love. I¬†understand they are popular in a number of international cities and, as I discovered the other day, in Pittsburgh also! These are…

Water world (not what I intended)

I certainly didn’t intend, or even expect to take any photos of flowers yesterday. Since¬†we were¬†in the area after dinner, my wife and I drove into Pittsburgh so I could grab a couple of photos. I thought about, and planned on, taking some type of urban black and white shots. But since the cloud cover was pretty¬†nice, I wondered if…

Sometimes you just like a photo for no apparent reason

I like todays picture. I’m not really sure why. It doesn’t offer much along the lines of subject matter –¬†just some black cattle, scattered around the photo. It’s not necessarily a good composition. The image¬†is kind of dark, in my opinion, but I wanted it that way. I wanted the black cattle to be black, just like they looked in…

Two for today

Going to break it up a little today. I saw these flowers¬†growing on the end of a¬†grungy painted dumpster today and I liked the nice built-in backgrounds. It looked like the roll off dumpster dug up some dirt while it was being unloaded and it’s been there so long flowers were growing in the dirt. These shots are almost begging…

Steps and doors

A little black and white study in angles taken while on a walk around an urban neighborhood. These photos were taken at separate parts of the journey yet I feel that they belong together. Processed in NIk Silver Efex with a higher contrast to emphasize the geometric shapes.
