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.

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.

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.

Polaroid Week 2009

May 9, 2009


This past week was ‘Roid Week 2009 on flickr, and it doesn’t have anything to do with Manny Ramirez or A-Rod.   It’s the week to celebrate by shooting with a Polaroid camera.  It’s a rather odd juxtaposition to be celebrating the birthday of Dr. Edwin Land, the inventor of instant photography as the medium he created is dying out.  At least Fuji hasn’t abandoned the instant film photographer by continuing to make and market a great replacement product.

This photograph is entitled “Retro” and was shot with a Polaroid SX-70 Alpha 1 Model 2 camera on type 600 film.

Ice at the Falls

I was on furlough from work a couple of weeks ago.  I took the time to go out and shoot.  One of the days, I went to Stepping Stone Falls in West Greenwich, RI.  I loaded a pack of film in my SX-70 and packed up my digital and off into the woods I went.  On the bridge, I saw this icicle and had to capture it.

In my last post, I mentioned going to Katz’s Deli.  Whenever I go out to breakfast with my photographer friends and I order pancakes, I always threaten to photograph them.  This time I brought my Polaroid in and actually did it.

A little background:  Last year, when I was taking History of Photography at RISD, we had to do a presentation on a famous photographer.  Our group presentation was on Stephen Shore.  For his American Surfaces and Uncommon Places projects, Shore traveled, “exploring the changing culture of America and exploring how a photograph renders the segment of time and space in its scope.”  In the process, he photographed TV sets, furniture, and of course, a pancake breakfast.

Katz’s Deli

Went to New York City on Sunday with a group of friends to shoot photos. We had breakfast at Katz’s Deli, where the famous scene from “When Harry Met Sally” was filmed. It’s one of those places that’s a New York City landmark.  Shot on 600 film with an SX-70 Alpha1 Model 2 camera.
