Advertising links

On two occasions now I have found adware on my computer that makes links from key words on my blog posts. When I discover them I remove them. It's unfair for these companies to use my site to advertise their products which I neither get compensated for or even endorse. I do sometimes use links in my posts so for now at least if you see a single word link such as "book" or something similar don't click it.

Sidewalk Posers

Taking a picture was a lot easier than thinking of something interesting to say about them. I mean after all, they're pigeons. Guess it's a good thing this is a photography blog.

Interesting Angles

I noticed this on the sidewalk one day. I spent a few moments pondering what it was and why it was there. Now every time I go by I stop and wonder for a moment. It is one of those lifes little (Ok very little) mysteries. In the meantime I thought I could make a picture of it.

Takin' It To The Street

As soon as I discovered street photography I knew it was a genre I loved. The immediacy of it, the intimacy, the spontanaety. I discovered it some time ago I've admired the photography I've seen since. I thought, "Ok I'm going to go out and do it". It isn't just that easy. It's taken me some time to cross the little barrier of getting photos of people who aren't expecting it. I've studied it, read how other photographers do it. I've tried to memorize their do's and don'ts but in the end I just had to get out the camera and walk up the street. Now here is another thing. I want to give myself experience with black and white photography. It's a different way of doing things so I will be shooting for b&w for a while.  Here are some examples.


I hope you enjoy these. It is new to me and I have to admit I am liking the process. So far.
