And Ladders

1

I’m really excited about the post today because I like the way this turned out. It’s a happy surprise for several reasons: I had been facing the other way photographing the chute from the last post and had my back to this. I almost didn’t take the shot because it was shooting into the sun and I thought it wouldn’t …

Chutes…

2

I’m not sure what this was used for but I’d love to know.  The way this contraption was setup looked almost like some sort of finished product was shipped off the second floor, down this chute and across the rollers onto a truck or something that could be parked just off to the right of this photo.  The riding surface …

Handle Me Roughly

2

I found this side-entrance door to one of the abandoned warehouses while wandering around the ‘dodgy’ area in Rochester, NY. I was completely fascinated with the buildings because I’d never seen anything like them before and really wanted to see the inside of some. At the same time, I had a bit of adrenalin going because of the location, so …

Wild Abandon

1

I spent part of an afternoon in an area of Rochester that I considered pretty ‘dodgy’.  I parked and took only my camera and one lens with me.  Partly because I didn’t really know exactly where I was or what state anything or anyone around here would be in.  In hindsight it probably wasn’t that dodgy and I was probably …

Downtown Rochester

0

I shot this from the west end of the Broad Street Bridge and I have really been trying to come up with a good title for it.  I haven’t.  I originally thought about naming it “Orange Cone”, but realized after I saw the image for the post it wouldn’t make any sense to anyone. I really love this photo and …

KODAK

Not my usual HDR, but this just called for it.  Without the multiple exposures the sky was just white and there wasn’t the detail in the trees I wanted.  Besides, regardless of what you will see in the next few posts, I do really like natural looking HDR. Sometimes overdone HDR is just, well, overdone. I had the opportunity to …

Here Comes the Sun

2

And I feel the weekend coming on. I’m so tired of the constant rain, the yard is a big sponge full of water and it feels like it will never dry out here. I’ve heard rumor that the sun will be shining this weekend and I’m looking forward to it. Once again, because of my work schedule I’ve had no …

Pink & Green

1

I’m posting this today partly because I love spring and it seems to have finally arrived in the northwest, and partly because I love the contrast of the pink flowers and the green background.  Mostly though – I love the Nikkor 60mm micro lens – wonderful bokeh, fantastic contrast and saturation and sometimes a depth-of-field of almost nothing (not always …

Maxwell Smart’s Entrance

0

–– With all the doors open. One thing I really like about this is how incredibly long this hallway looks thanks to the fish. Another thing I was interested in while I was in this hall was the stalagmites forming on the floor. At first glance I didn’t recognize them for what they were – I noticed them on the …
