Not sure who’s cooler, the 1975 Stutz or the guy looking at it.

Local car show had some really nice cars. But this one, a 1975 Stutz Blackhawk VI, took the cake. When I shot it, I had intended on only shooting that pimped out car. The guy next to it backed up out of the frame, so he thought. Planned on cropping him out, but to be honest, I wasn’t sure who was cooler, the car or the guy looking at it.

Fog rolling out.

Sunbury Pennsylvania was built on the banks of the Susquehanna River. The valley is subject to frequent foggy mornings. I caught this shot as the fog was rolling off of the town.

This is the main reason why I always carry my camera, especially when driving. In 30 seconds, this shot was gone.

Dopamine, by a sophomore chemistry major.

We finally had a snowy winter. Fortunately we have creative students. This chemistry major drew dopamine in the snow facing the organic profs office.

And the picture below is what the business students drew across the street.

Photography is sometimes only emotional.

Composition and lighting are key to great photography. However, sometimes a second rate photograph has more appeal. My example below is a simple photograph. Dawn is just peeking over the houses and casting long shadows on the yard. It was a quiet moment before a long hectic day.

Morning Drive in central Pennsylvania.

Amish are so integrated into our society in central Pennsylvania, they get their own buggy entrance at the bank.

Squirrels in my yard

The thaws and freezes have been tough on the squirrels, which my wife feeds. Normally this time of year they would be in a squirrel equivalent of hibernation tucked into their nests. The sunshine and promise of peanuts has drawn them out. Roughly six squirrels live in the neighborhood. But the peanuts also bring out […]

Bleary sky. Dirty snow. So cold I’ve got to be careful taking the DLSR back inside.

I think I’ll just work up my photos from the fall.

Puddle Art II

Inspiration is found in many forms.  I’ve found that my attempts to capture this puddle image with my DLSR is just didn’t work well. But my iPod captures it just as I think it should be. Actually, I think the iPod wide angle optics works better in this case than the DLSR, which tends to breath too much depth and distortion into the image.

The puddle is a large 3 inch deep pothole on the side of the alley down the block. It collects water in it and freezes in nice patterns. I suppose its turning into an unintentional photo project.
