  • Created discussion thread I woulda jumped right outa-
    I woulda jumped right outa my skin (the darkroom, too) if I had pulled a reel of 120 film from the E6 stabilizer and saw this image : Kowa 6* (not). Not that I didn't make a lot of "pretty ...
  • Thank you for your kind comments. No, I don't / haven't submitted any images for stock. They all just wind up in my gallery. :)
  • Yup. Drinks straws. I saw them at the grocery, on sale. I remembered a shot from years ago. Sorry- not an  N1 shot Not at all bad And decided I wanted more straws- More straws And then went into ...
  • Created discussion thread I will, one of these days -
    But not today: Justa buncha color . I will take a normal picture, I promise ... :)
  • Replied in Color play
    The light was fun, simple, and easy: open shade, on a small covered porch. I opened the door and there it was ! :)
  • Replied in Color play
    Yup.  Plastic drinks straws, and some (intentional) camera movement. Great fun for about three dollars. And I have straws enough to last forever. Ever drink ale through a straw ? Me neither ... :)
  • Created discussion thread Color play
    Another play to see what colors I can find- Red, and green, and blue, and ... Lotsa colors, as it turns out. :)
  • Thanks for the comment, Andre. Yup, I kept the processing on this image quite "sedate". It is a full color file, and I was tempted to convert it to B&W, or do this or that,  but finally decided I ...
  • Created discussion thread Space. Shape. Shadow. Again.
    Continuing my series;  shot just out my front door - Harsh light makes hard shadows :)
  • Thanks, Andre and Jimmy. Over the years I have tended towards  abstract, or graphic looks. (I suspect it derives from early days, starting in photo in the sixties and studio commercial work in the ...
  • Now a couple days have gone by it is a deeper red. When I selected it the color was not as it appears here. It just gets redder by the day. Maybe I will shoot it again before I eat it ... ):

    When I was a youngster this is what most of  'em looked like. That old-school tomato Now they  are called heirloom, and I'm called old. Among other things... :)
  • I hope you don't mind my comments- Good, as you said for a first attempt. Sports and action photography is (almost) as much about the background as the action. The photographer sees the action. The ...
  • They should just pull my finger. :)
  • A+ #1 tips for getting creative shots - Be creative. Don't ask for creativity tips. Think about what you are trying to communicate. They are your photos, after all. Photography is visual communication.
  • It is the appreciation of the photographs that is my reward. I thank you most sincerely. (If I became famous and wealthy that would be okay too ...) :)
  • Thanks, judas and Andre. Yup three weeks without a photograph. I was afraid and thought I might not make another, ever again. All my favorite "lazy photographer" filters didn't work, so I had to ...

    It was more than three weeks since I shot something- Out the front door, again. A location shoot. :)
