Runnin’ with the dog(wood)s. A mixed process.

I took some photos of some spring trees in the local park with my Leica M9 the other day. After reviewing the photos that evening I spotted some ideas in one of the photos that would require a closer look than my Leica was capable of. So I headed out the next day with my Fuji gear in hopes of…

An autumn day in July

No, I’m not talking about the weather, although last weekend was a little cool and wet. I’m talking about todays photo which was taken on an autumn day back in 2009. Digging through the archives again on this slow photo day and I thought I would dig a little further back. Not too far back, this isn’t Throwback Thursday, which…

Some weekend art experiments

I’m just kind of sticking around the house this weekend, even though there are some cool events happening nearby that would be fun to see, like the Pittsburgh Blues Festival and the Vintage Grand Prix. Perhaps next year when my house is situated a little better. For now I have other things to focus on. That doesn’t mean I am not…

Nothing new and some old flowers

I still haven’t taken any recent photos. I’ve been taking my camera with me the last few times I’ve been out but I just haven’t found anything of interest. I remember from doing my 365 last year how dark and dismal it is around here this time of year and what a rough time I had getting through January. The…

365-59 Bokeh, Topaz and Orton

Back to normal today, no more fun abstracts. My 365 shot  is of some kind of pod on a tree next to my porch. There’s a busy street in the background so I used my Super-Takumar 50mm wide open at f/1.4 for limited depth. Due to the relatively boring subject, I decided to punch the color up a bit with Topaz…

365-51 Black and white trickery

Something a little different. I took the smokestack picture today and the sky was nice but a little uninteresting. A good time to practice some Photoshop skills.  I remembered I shot some rain clouds with lightning a couple of years ago so I searched my files and found the shot. I extracted the sky from the old photo and added it to the…

A few monochrome images

Thought I would post a few random black and white images I’ve shot the past few days. I like black and white photography. When I was a teenager, I did my own b&w film processing and printing. I went through a ton of Tri-X. Now with digital, I’m still enjoying monochrome imaging. I know purists say that real black and white…
