I have seen a few blogs with interesting photos of abandoned houses. I noticed this house in OK on our way back to TX and decided to pull off and take pics. I want to point out that this is the greenest grass I have seen anywhere in that area and this pic was taken in December 2011. I began to quesiton if the house was actually occupied when I saw the American flag hanging on the front porch, so I quietly left…
For some reason there has been a lot of discussion, on the photo blogs I am reading, about the best lenses, largest sensors, and that kind of thing. All very valid, but in the end I think we need to remember that it is not the equipment, but our willingness to go out and do photo work. I have not done my share lately, except reworking older images. I came across this pinhole portrait done with a 35mm pinhole camera on Fuji Neopan 1600. It was a stark reminder for me to quit reading technical stuff and go out and photograph!
Day 2 of my wisdom tooth extraction recovery. Did I mention all four were impacted? Maybe this has some correlation as to the swelling of my cheeks. I’m officially a chipmunk, so today is all about Ice, Ice Baby. The local anaesthetic has worn off though and I can now feel my lower lip! This means, no permanent nerve damage…yay! Plus I can more readily control liquids entering my mouth.
Can’t say I’ve been overly motivated to take photographs. But in between changing jaw ice packs, I thought I better capture the essence of today.
