Photo-op spotting

I am one of those folks who try to have a camera with them at all times. I don’t mean I carry one into the grocery store but I generally throw one into the car when I’m heading out, you know, just in case. I’m always looking for photo-ops. This particular photo I spotted while driving in the city. My…

Looking at a wall

I don’t have much to discuss about this photo – I simply liked the textures and color combinations. This was taken the other night when I was looking around in the antique store windows. I took a spin around the block to walk through the alley when I noticed the green “stacked” doors. I thought they looked interesting and I…

Maybe it’s just me

Every once in a while I come across a scene that just intrigues me. It could be something simple like a color or texture that first captures my attention and then I just have to stop and get a photo. This scene was one of those. I just liked the colors and textures at work here. Add the cross, the pink…

365-190 Stone walled

Visited the cemetery again today because I was trying to find an animal to shoot. The animals in the cemetery are accessible since they are used to humans, which makes it somewhat easier to get photos. I wanted an animal to continue my intentional camera movement experiments and I wanted something else that was moving also. There were some geese at the…

365-173 Bad workmanship = good photos

There is this huge retaining wall on the back-end of the parking lot of the closed shopping center I mentioned previously (365-164). It’s always leaking and seemed to be cracked from day one. Another thing done horribly wrong at the site. I always meant to get a photo of the cool patterns from the leaks but never ventured near the wall…

325-126 All about texture

I’m kind of running out of time tonight so I’ll keep the text short. I did my usual ride around town again and although not looking for anything in particular, I found textures more than anything. My 365 shot is just an odd sight on the side of an old building downtown. What the purpose is I have no idea but…

365-70 Urban shooting

I saw this large sticker that was starting to peel off of a building and thought it could be interesting from a different angle. This is behind what was once a coffee shop. A little bit of urban art, I guess, in an alley. A rare sight where I live. even though my town has a few art galleries and…

365-62 Same place, different day

I’m in a bit of a creative funk right now. Both artistically and technically. I’m just not finding shots that work and the few that I thought I would like suffered from bad technical skills. Mostly just too blurry from either camera shake or bad focusing. Some shots look good on the LCD but when I load them onto the…

365-58 A late one

12:02 AM. I guess I missed my post today by a few minutes. Well it’s late, so I’ll keep it short with a simple shot. Pentax K20D, DA17-70   White Wall Blue Sky    Edited to add a shot from the other side:                        

365-46 Parking garage bokeh

I didn’t really get out to shoot anything today as I was doing other things. This is a bokeh shot taken in a parking garage window with my Super-Takumar 50mm, wide open. I shot a few pictures while I was in the garage thinking I would look for shots later on but I never got to shoot anymore. So, tip No.1 for 365’ers, shoot…
