This will take some practice. Shooting with a wide angle.

When I last left you I mentioned a new wide-angle lens that I was going to try out. Well I did try out THAT lens and it didn’t quite work out the way I had hoped. It wouldn’t take much snooping to know I usually use Pentax camera gear. I like it, it works for me, and I find their…

Trials of creepiness

I had this idea to take this bride and groom photo that I shot while walking around Pittsburgh last weekend and add a Furry head to the groom. I looked in my files of Furries street shots to find just the right head at the right angle and came across this goat-like thing. That was the easy part. My Photoshop…

A fur to remember

When the annual Anthrocon Convention is in Pittsburgh, you can be sure furry hijinks will ensue!! It’s always fun on the 4th of July weekend to go downtown and watch the furry fun. It’s too bad I am the worlds worst street photographer. Gear that I use for my normal stationary subjects photography gives me a hard time when trying to…

Branching out with buildings

In my ever-changing mind I thought I would try some straight up building shots for something different. I was thinking black and white right from the get-go and the late afternoon sky and light really enhanced the scenes. I basically just walked around looking for different perspectives than I normally would. Normally my eyes are on the ground looking for…

As I was saying

A different shot from yesterday. This is why I don’t do too much “street” photography. Not good with the people pics. But I do like the colors here (that cool/warm thing) so that’s why I’m showing it. But I think I’ll  just move along….

City Lines

It’s been a while since I walked around the city just for the purpose of photography. Being a holiday weekend I had some free time and wanted to at least try to do some shooting in downtown Pittsburgh. I figured late Sunday afternoon wouldn’t be too busy but a Pirates baseball game just let out as my wife and I…

My test, your pleasure

I wanted to test a recently acquired macro lens and, as it’s still a little yucky around, I decided to try it out at the Phipps Conservatory. A little jump start on spring. Nothing artsy, just flowers.

Gold in them hills

My photo, “Can’t Wait” was chosen as a Gold Selection winner for the North Valley Art League International Juried Photography Show, which opens Tuesday, April 29, 2014. It is an honor to be chosen but the hard part is still ahead of me – writing an Artist Statement! I’ll try to do my best with that but, as anyone who has spent…

I wouldn’t blame you

If you are questioning yourself why you keep visiting this site, especially when I am posting photos like this, I wouldn’t blame you. My output has been a bit ho-hum and along with a gazillion other things I am trying to accomplish right now, these pages haven’t been too entertaining of late. But the reason I am showing this photo that I shot…

It is what it is

I was going to post another toned black and white flower image but instead I’ll break things up with…..a broken up image! Playing with mirrors in downtown Pittsburgh. Somewhere there is a dinosaur involved! I was told by security that I can’t photograph towards the building shortly after taking this. Ah, modern life! 😦
