I am loaded in, set up, and ready for tomorrow morning. I’m tired. I’m hungry. But the weather is fucking beautiful, so I haven’t even broken a sweat. I feel good about my work. My homemade setup isn’t that bad and it’s holding up to some brutal wind. The Ranger is currently blocked in, so I’m relaxing. Nothing more…
The Grand Prix Of St. Petersburg is only a week away! There will be race cars within walking distance of my house. I’m very excited. After taking The Ranger for a quick spin on the track Wednesday, I went back on Thursday to snap some pictures of the track being built.
Took a nice drive and got a 1.5 mile walk in before the sun fell.
I bought a year of VSCO X, and if you can’t tell, I’ve kinda taken a liking to the new B&W presets. Oak Ridge is an incredibly cool place and some super awesome history. Oh, and VSCO published that picture of the diorama with the lines shooting out of the building!
First off: Greetings! I feel as though I haven’t been here in awhile (mostly because I haven’t) because I see many different names posting here now than I used to. Glad to see this place so far survived the Gawker buyout.
Now, to business.
Last May, my family attended a WWII re-enactment titled Close Assault 1944 at Camp Mabry in Austin (I finally got around to editing the photos). Before the re-enactment, the soldiers of both sides described and demonstrated the various small arms used by the two combatants. In the mock battle that followed, members of…
My wall suggestion to old what’s-his-name.
So, the final post of my Chicago walk last weekend is of the people I saw all around me. I found myself being a bit more bold this time, not asking and just snapping. People were either friendly or didn’t even notice. And those that were homeless or performing I made sure to give some money to before photographing.…
Went last night after work and before a major storm front arrived. It was a great drive up in freakish 75ºf temps and a drive home outrunning a thunderstorm.
I’ve been building my display boards this week. I painted the door blanks a nice flannel grey. But first, a fun story...
So, my 3rd of my 4 posts on my recent Chicago trip is just random stuff. I’m deciding to keep the longest for last. But here you go, random Chicago.
On my Chicago trip, I found that take photos of people taking photos was quite fun and turned out really nice! The last one here I can’t help but smile about because she finished taking her photo right after I took mine, turned to me, and just started laughing.
Took this shot of my ‘94 S10 Blazer with a Vivitar 35mm for a photography class I took in college about 15 years ago. I think I got a C in the class, but I always liked this shot. My wife framed it for me a number of years ago and it never got rehung when we moved.
All of the prints! (Except three that I’ll get tomorrow). All signed and numbered. I think I just signed my name 145 times.
What sap, bud’ies?! Water we all up to? What’s crackin? I shan’t punish you further. I had four days off in a row this week, it was kind of like a movie or show where people are just hanging out together with no discernible work world. There was a new ping pong table, some tennis with the lad, aka, chase the ball fast…
Yesterday I took a trip to Chicago starting at 10am and ending at 8:30pm. 23 miles later I had taken almost 1000 photos (I’m getting more particular about my shots). Most of them either dogs or people. So, my first post is the dogs, because everyone loves dogs, right?
And my wife took a picture that makes me look like a big doofus. Pretty sure that was intentional on her part. And that’s why I love her.
