Beavertail Light

January 30, 2010

Springtime view of Beavertail Light in Jamestown, RI.  I finally scanned the negatives from my Holga and thought I’d upload this.

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.

Canal St.

I photographed this building on a recent trip to NYC.  I had a great time at Photo Plus Expo, even though I had trouble walking around.  The show was smaller this year, but always worth the trip.

Sunflowers

When I injured my knee this past summer, I was trying to figure out how I could continue to photograph outdoors.  There were a couple of sunflowers growing behind the shed that offered me the perfect opportunity.  So I brought out my digital and the Polaroid on occasion to document them.

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.

Lunch?

Going through my recent archives, I found this macro shot of a toadstool.  What interested me about it is the collection of debris on top, along with what looks like the bite marks of a small animal.

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.

New Work

I hurt my knee shortly after taking this shot.  But I was already halfway down the trail, so I continued on.  Passed a couple skinny-dipping in the cove up near the point.  One of them heard my footsteps and said “We’ve got company,” but I didn’t pay any attention to them.  Maybe one of them would have posed for my class assignment!

So I’m sitting here in front of the computer with an ice pack on my knee, processing photographs and wondering how long I’m out of commission.  My last shoot for the Fine Art class went very well, except I need to edit down to 12 photographs.
