Pachyderm

Pachyderm

I took this at a little place I refer to as Hell on Earth or Nong Nooch Gardens. I still hate the place and vow never to return. Still, I got an elephant photo and if you are wondering what a pachyderm is feel free to read on Wikipedia. Clearly, Wikipedia knows way more about the word than I do. For inquiring minds, I must tell you that elephants in large numbers rather smell. Mix that in with high heat…

Macro Madness: Black and White

Macro Madness: Black and White

I knew some of these images were going to be in black and white when I took them.  I think it sometimes brings out textures or features that would otherwise be missed in color.  There is a tonality to black and white that color lacks if that makes sense.  Some of these images were shot on a manual focus Minolta 50mm 3.5 macro lens that I totally forgot I owned.  It doesn’t go to 1:1 like the Olympus 60mm but…

Into the Fog

Into the Fog

I have been told no more night moves for awhile so I’ll call this one into the fog. I had to work late one night and to kill time before going to work I took a camera and a walk.  For some reason the fog and the lens I was using the Panasonic 20mm 1.7 weren’t making a happy couple.  A lot of the images were just too out of focus to use but these two turned decent enough.  The…

Wheel In The Sky

Wheel In The Sky

Another one from the never processed batch.  It was too dark on the base because the photographer didn’t have metering set right but the more I played with it the more I thought the way the seats contrast with the sky make it interesting.  The color version didn’t work as well but I really like how you see each east outlined against the moody sky.

Josh

Josh

I periodically forget I am a portrait photographer and while this was all natural light it came out well.  I was shooting an event (his grandmothers birthday) and Josh who I have known for years would allow me to shoot him.  I asked him to pose quickly and this was it.  The first I used flash but then went natural light.  With the Ray-Ban’s on it gave it a classic feel so black and white it is!

Lost

Lost

I debated on this image and have two shots.  One that is in focus and this one.  I’ll tell some details I’m deliberately hiding in the image.  First off, he’s out of it completely and totally.  He’s a huffer meaning he sniffs chemicals to get high.  His fingers are blackened by paint which you can’t see in this image except a hint where he holds the cup.  The cane/crutch is a prop and likely a defensive weapon.  The third thing is his…

Alien Flowers

Alien Flowers

I am back from a long layoff.  I needed to take a break from photography and life in general for a bit.  I was in Thailand and didn’t get as many pictures as I liked and I still need to move them from my laptop to my main processing computer but they will eventually appear. I make my triumphant return with this image.  I realize it’s in black and white and flowers should be in color but I was in…
