These are some shots I took as an experiment with different lighting. It was fun to do and I learned a few things, which is always good.

A Peak Into Our Mother's Day

We had a great Mother's Day this year. My wife got what she asked for, a day working in the yard with no complaining from my son, and no advice on how we should do things from me. I am still not sure why she asked for that last part. I chose the Brownie Bull's Eye (pictured above) for the task. It is quite a camera with two shutter speeds, one aperature, and a huge negative.

My wife and her new helper, who actually doesn't help all that much.

The fam on the new swing we put together. The baby is happy!!!

Getting ready for the swing.

Not us in the buggy, but I heard the clopping going by our house and rushed out to get the pic. The Kodak is the perfect camera for this subject as it helps the image look a bit antique.

Proof that I was actually working. My son took this. The camera must be held still because of the slow shutter speed, but I think he did a pretty good job, apart from the unsteady hand. I don't want photos of me being that sharp anyway, they show too many flaws.

I like spiders more and more

Spring Bird Series

This is a series of pics that I took about two weeks ago. They were taken with my Canon Elan 7 or the Pentax Spotmatic and super Takumar lens. I got up, on a Saturday, before any sane person should be up on the weekend and went out to a local Marsh to try and get a photo or two. I ended up taking seven rolls of film before the day was through. Some of the slide film is still being processed. Later in the morning, my family and I went on a fun tour with some local birders and the colleges Biology department. We ended up getting photo captures of some nice species. I missed a huge owl that day, but had a great time and won a bat house at a raffle after all was over. Please click the pictures to see the large version, you can actually see the birds!
