Just went out tonight after 11 and took 16 shots around my neighborhood with 120mm black and white film. Will post in the near future…..Very Excited.
I love to carve pumpkins, and a few years back me and my cousin came across a very cool way to display our creations……
1. Carve a pumpkin (one big enough to hold a roll of toilet paper)
2. Fill a paint can with kerosene (hardware stores sell empty cans)
3. Soak a roll of toilet paper in the kerosene for 30 minutes or more.
4. Place the kerosene soaked toilet paper in the pumpkin (its best to use a cheap pair of tongs)
5. Light the pumpkin. It should burn for up to 30 minutes, the biggest flame is usually in the first 5 min.
6. Please be careful. It’s fire……
Also, if you cut up a roll of toilet paper and wrap the pieces in twine and soak them in kerosene you can fit the in smaller pumpkins….
A couple of my friends playing some table top football with a quarter. I snapped this shot right when my one friend went for the field goal. I did not realize until later that my other friend was hit in the face with the quarter which if you look under his chin you can see the coin falling after the hit. Right place, right time.
February of 2003 up in the Poconos. I was near a small lake with a fountain in it. The fountain was causing ripples, I zoomed on the ripples really close with a 300mm lens and snapped a few shots. This is the best one or at least the one I liked the most. For better results in getting a shot like this, try a higher shutter speed and keep the camera as stable as possible or use a tripod.
June of 2004, I was on a tour of Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side. The tour decided to stop at Virginia City. I walked away from the tour group to a bare spot in the desert, I saw this truck. I started to walk to it through a property that looked like it should have a “Trespassers will be shot” sign. There was this old shack looking house near the truck but I wanted this picture so bad. I took the photo and a second later I heard something crashing sound in the house so I panicked a little and got out of there. I was fortunate to have taken this shot using a favorite film: Ilford 200 SFX black and white film. I was so happy with the result and the entire experience of taking this photo. While others in the group took pictures of familiar sites in that town, I got something unique. To this day, one of my favorite pictures…
I took this picture in December of 2000 at Longwood Gardens. This is a bonsai tree backlit by the sunlight coming thru. I decided to experiment and put a blue filter over the lens and thus the result.
Hello and welcome to my new site. I am going to start building this up in the coming weeks. for now you can access my pictures by clicking the picture of me………
