Another from the rails

Here’s another shot from my visit to the train tracks. It’s just another rusty detail shot. This is the sliding mechanism on the boxcar doors. I shot a closer detail with the Leica 25mm but his one was shot with the Lumix G 14mm lens, which does quite well in its own right considering how little I paid for it and…

Just posting Vol. 1

I honestly haven’t been spending much time shooting lately and I feel a little bad about it. I’ve been focusing on my house and assorted other life things so I haven’t really had the time to just go out and take photos. Oh I take my camera with me as much as possible because, you know, “just in case” but as…

A round of rust

How about a series of rusty pipe photos? I know, I know….you can calm down now. Be patient and you’ll be able to view this wonderful series as soon as you are done reading. I took these photos last month when I was just testing out the Lumix GX1 camera and never did anything with them. I don’t know why – I mean, seriously, the…

365-324 True grit

Just a few more jobsite photos today. I haven’t been able to get out and shoot much lately so these will have to suffice. I will be able to move around a bit more in the coming week, so that should help the photo diversity some. Other than that, I don’t have much else to say today. Until tomorrow.

365-221 Decisions, decisions

I went back and forth on two totally different photos to use for my 365 today  I’ll post both photos here and let you decide if I made the right choice. In the end, the warm color of the rusty metal won out. Though I do like the graphic simplicity of the window shot and I went back and forth between…

365-68 Wet, rusty, and worn

If there’s anything there is no shortage of around here, it’s wet and rusty stuff. Rust because of all the industrial areas that at one time provided the economy in my town but now are closed and left to ruin. Wet because winter is ending, the snow is melting and it rains every other day now. Really pretty. 😉  So, just like all of my snow…

365-56 No extra effort award

For my 365 choice, I just liked the colors here, especially the gradation on the wall. I would have liked the shot to be a hair sharper but the light level was pretty low, considering the focal length. Plus a few of the shots could have benefited from a smaller aperture. I could have boosted the ISO more but I…
