Stairway to…….

April 27, 2012

I found this place in a trail guidebook.  It’s funny that I’ve been on the trails in this area a number of times and never made my way to this area.  It’s part of the remnants of an old public campground that closed many years ago.  Most people that hike in the area follow the river trail that leads to the waterfall.  On this particular trip, I decided to seek out the hillside trail and see what was left.

Overexposed

February 6, 2011

Over the past year, I’ve been experimenting with different light.  This is the full illumination of a magicube through the Fresnel lens on the Big Shot camera.  I wasn’t expecting it to overexpose like this, but I like the result.

Taken with a Polaroid Big Shot camera using Fuji FP100B film and a GE Magicube.

Reflections of Winter

January 28, 2011

It’s been tough photographing outside with all the snow we’ve had in the Northeast.  This is from one of the last snowstorms shooting from the deck.  I thought the reflections of light off the windows cast an interesting shadow.

Happy Holidays!

December 24, 2009

It’s been a long and eventful year.  Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday season as I look forward to being more active with my photography in 2010.

Just before the storm, I managed to get back inside with the camera.  This is one from July that I’m preparing for an exhibit.

Recycled

Not sure when this came to be, but somebody pulled a bunch of items from what looks to be an old landfill in the middle of the woods.  There is a 1950’s car overturned near a refrigerator and a few other large items and who knows what else.  There’s a foundation from a house or barn that was once nearby, but all that surrounds today is woods.  Kind of reminds me of Shelley’s “Ozymandias.”

Another one from the fateful day.  This is the very next frame from Impressionist Landscape.  The knee hasn’t improved much and I’m still out of work.  I’m using the time to work on an upcoming exhibit.  Details to follow….

Impressionist Landscape

Another one from my recent trip to Chafee Nature Preserve at Rome Pt. The reflection of the trees and sunlight in the water give almost an Impressionist view of the landscape.   Almost makes the trip worth the knee injury I suffered.   Other than a slight levels adjustment in Photoshop, this is straight out of camera.
