3-24-14 Changing Eyes

Once upon a time I thought this was the best photograph I had ever taken. I still like it but…I’m not as taken with photography as imitation painting as I once was.

12-29-13 Travel Theme: Bird #2

I thought I would jump back into birding which is Ailsa’s theme of the week (well birds). My first go at it is here.

I have been learning the new Canon Mark III 5D I won in a raffle at Photo Plus Expo and thought I would take it down to the river. Lots of birds out and about. I also thought I would do some serious work in Lightroom afterwards with one image.

I really like the camera. I need to learn it a bit better before I take it out and do a shoot out between it and the Nikon D800 but that is for 2014.

Meanwhile here are some birds. The first shot is just to set the scene:

and the Lightroom worked shot.

12-4-13 Broken Light

For some time now I have been following Broken Light: A Photography Collective.

Today, The Accidental Cootchie Mama got all directive in her blog and told her readers to connect with the blogger who commented above them.  To say I am not in that kind of mood is an understatement. But, I am not really as misanthropic as that may sound, so I decided that rather than my meeting someone new, I would introduce you to someone new.  Broken Light seemed the right blog to point to. I strongly suggest you wander over to their site (follow the link at top of page) and check out the work.

The simplest explanation the Collective gives of itself is:

“We are photographers living with or affected by mental illness; supporting each other one photograph at a time. Join our community, submit today!”

They do not limit the contributors to those who are specifically diagnosed with an illness, they also have contributors who work in the field or who have affected family members.  People of all levels from beginner to top professionals have submitted work since I have been following the blog. I really believe that it is worth your attention.

10-27-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon – Hudson River iPhone Edition

I had a long post about the Boro Walk planned for today but our internet is awful (Thanks Time-Warner Cable! You truly suck), so I am going in a different direction. Taken from our friends, Roy, Anne and Eva’s house this evening. Classic horizon.

6-18-13 Early Days

This is one of the earliest shots I took of the river before I had any idea I would be spending a significant part of the next three years photographing it.

When I shot it, back in October of 2010 I thought of it as an epic picture about the power of the river and the boats and barges that travel it day by day. Now I think it is romantic and perhaps even a bit sentimental. I still like it though.

“I never considered a difference of opinion, in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.”

10-5-12 Out Into The Cool Of The Evening

 

Sunset in my mirror, pedal on the floor
Bound for New York City and I won’t be back no more
Won’t be back no more, boys won’t see me around
Goodbye guitar town

Ghosts out on the highway, voices on the wind
Tellin’ me that we may never pass this way again
Voices on the highway angels beckonin’
Like a long lost friend

Fare thee well I’m bound to roam
This ain’t never been my home

Stranger in my mirror, lines around my eyes
String around my finger but I don’t remember why
Don’t remember why, boys don’t remember how
Goodbye guitar town

Fare thee well I’m bound to roam
This ain’t never been my home

Blue dog on my floorboard, redhead by my side
Cross the mighty Hudson river to the New York City side
Redhead by my side, boys sweetest thing I’ve found
Goodbye guitar town

9-22-12 A Very Special Guest Blog

I was driving back from NJ today when this came on the radio.  Even if you HATE NPR, and think that This American Life is a socialist boondoogle wasting US taxpayer money… when you have some time, listen to this. It is one of the most amazing stories I have ever heard.
