Spring break is this week, so hopefully I’ll be catching up on a few things around here…
I can’t believe there’s only 3 weeks left until graduation. I still haven’t heard anything from most of the schools I applied to. I don’t know what that means, but it’s making me rather nervous.
And I wonder if I’ll ever see the sun again.
I’m still hoping for some feedback on those two photos I posted yesterday, but after downloading and reading the entry forms, I am allowed to send 2 images, so that makes my decision pretty easy. I did crop the red tulip a little, just so that it isn’t smack in the middle of the shot.
It’s supposed to rain all weekend. I hope it lets up a bit for the festival this Sunday, that would be disappointing, since this would be the 1st year in about 6 years that I would actually be able to make it there without work getting in the way. It would figure it would rain.
Also slightly disappointing, the Starbucks by me is closing down after next week. Now I’ll have to travel a bit farther for coffee and free wifi.
Here’s another shot from the photo shoot in Stony Brook the other day.
Another brilliant day. I think it reached around 86 degrees today. It’s hot, and it’s not even summer yet! Went for a walk around downtown Port Jefferson for a little while.. Turns out there was an antiques show there so we took a look around. I was able to sneak a few shots in 😉 so I think it turned out to be a pretty nice day.
Found these tulips on my walk. I love the bright colors
These old glass bottles looked really cool sitting in the sun.
It was finally a perfect, non-rainy spring day; and I was well enough to get out for a bit to use my new camera. I didn’t get to take too many shots though, the sinus pressure in my head started to get the best of me.
Went over to Starbucks for a bit, thought I’d bring my laptop and hang out for a bit; enjoy the day. But I couldn’t seem to get my wifi to work… spent an hour there fighting with my laptop, but no luck. But at least I got out for a little bit. I’ve been stuck in the house for pretty much the entire week.
Next week is the Heckscher Tulip Festival, so I’m going to try and get out there to take a some more photos. I’ve been meaning to do it the past few years, but never seemed to be able to get the day off.
Happy Friday everyone!
Every spring my neighborhood is filled with these fluff pink trees. Giant pink cotton balls to welcome you home every day.
Everyone thinks I’m crazy for shooting film lately. But I kinda like getting back to the basics. Besides, its going to be a while before I can afford a DSLR (I’m thinking NIkon D60or D80), so I’m going to have to get my fill of manual goodness through my Dad’s old Nikon FM. Thirty years and counting, and its still going strong. They just don’t make things like they used to, do they? 😉
I am really disappointed today. I developed a roll of 36 exposures, and this is the only picture that came out. All the rest have these weird shadows/lens flares or something bizarre on them. You can see what was printable in my Flickr gallery. I don’t know if its a problem with the lens, my camera, a bad batch of film, or some sort of wonky developing problem… I had taken some really great shots that I was so excited to get back and post… but all I have is this tree… and it doesn’t quite look right either.
Well, at least the colors are nice…
I’m actually pretty excited for the warmer weather to get here, and for the chance to get out and start taking some shots again, now that work has gone back to some normal hours. No more 14 hr days for me!
So, hopefully soon you’ll get to see some new work posted here.
The only thing is, where to start… Any ideas, or themes you would like to see? Post them below. (Nothing vulgar please!)
This is still one of my favorite photos, and one of my most popular on Flickr as well as DeviantART.
