Worldwide Pinhole Photograph Day

So here it is, shot with the "pinhole" lens in my Hipstamatic app, this is an approach to the idea of shooting a pinhole photo, but lacking the "edgy" quality that is found in most pinholes. Digital seems "forced/forged" and less natural to me as an artistic process, but I am so often delighted by the results!


I also have included a shot of the front of my camera!

Back on the Road Again

I had some problems with my bike at the end of last season, the front tire didn't seem to want to hold a tube. I took it in and had it checked, and sure enough, I needed a new tire! Got it ordered and got it on at the end of April break, and this afternoon was my first ride of 2017. It seemed great to be out in the "real world and moving.

Edge of Water Bubbles

This project sprang from the hot day last Saturday that we spent in New Gloucester. The grandsons were playing outside so we got the water table out and gave them some water to play in and maybe help them cool off. The next day brought out the "bubbles" to play with, and some of them ended up in the water table, so I started snapping pictures. The patterns began to evolve as a concept, and the large on is my favorite, with the contrast tweaked a bit and the sharp edges of the bubbles reflecting everything in the visual sphere.

Early Easter

That Easter Bunny must have his clock or calendar wrong because he came to the house and dropped a bunch of eggs around the living room. They were brightly colored with golden flecks throughout their surfaces... they seemed almost magical. I'm not sure what they had to do with the Christian version of Easter.

Here are several images of them.

Matt and I just came out of Bull Moose in Bangor and saw a "dollop" of an oil slick just kind of sitting in a puddle, so I dragged my foot through it to make it move a bit. As it swirled around on the surface of the puddle, it began to take on some interesting shapes, and as Matt moved to the other side of I saw this shot come into "existence", and took it. He was just starting to light a cigarette, and I thought the shiny oil shapes made an "altered" view of smoke swirling around him.

I flipped the image too.
