Never Quick, Nor Easy.

Easy Divorce.

This photo would fit well into a project aimed around the ideas of “commitment” or a series on “North American Living”. ironically of course.

This was a sign outside what seemed to be a small, walk in, walk out law office in the lower east side of Manhattan.

Walking around with my Nikon AF600 (a small point a shoot 35mm camera) while waiting to play a concert at a small venue, I spotted the sign. Having no idea how to photograph it though. I walked up and took a picture of it for my own personal memory, knowing the composition would hold no value. Later, however, after developing the roll, I noticed that I accidentally captured a bus with a American Flag on the side. This, I think, adds some sort of value to the image. Leading one to impose an idea of a downfall in North American culture as to the idea that divorce as become a way of life and a cultural norm. I think that it speaks to the area of commitment and instant gratification all at the same time.

I think it’s a neat picture.

Shot on some expired Blacks 200iso film that I found at a thrift shop. the best thing about this film is that it has the processing included. Free developing. Go team!

anyways, thanks for reading.

Instant Smile. (day 7)

BW - Sarah -Polaroid

I own a Polaroid Supercolor 600 – It’s really cool.

The most uncool thing is that film is expensive.

I try my best to make every shot count. – This photo was taken in complete darkness in a basement and I let the massive flash of the camera light the room. I then scanned it at 1200i resolution.

if you have a polaroid camera or film laying around and dont want it I will gladly take it off your hands.

Water vs Gravity. (day 2)

022_20

I live in the Waterfall capital of the world. So the other day I was admiring one of them along with 45 other tourists. I had my SLR with me, shooting some very cheap 200 sped film. – I think I’m terrible at taking pictures of nature, but on this day I was really keen to take some. – Standing at this waterfall I saw this kid playing at the bottom. With the kid in the picture it makes the waterfall look twice as big or it makes the kid look twice as small. – Regardless I waited for the kid to be in some form of position. I like this cause he is looking down, and I feel like the water fall is looking down on him… Idono.. make your own metaphor.

I got this developed at Wal-Mart, Something I recommend you never do. – I think their chemicals at this particular store were way past expired. Idono, but I usually get processing done at another place where the guy actually cares about his images. Anyways, maybe it was just my cheap film or a collection of both.

When It Rains; It Pours

Rain

You ever have a photo you just can’t wait to upload? This is one of those photo’s.

I used to work in a kitchen, and after a terrible shift one evening I was looking for a way to calm myself down and relax a bit. It was intensely raining when I got off work but I was still set on chilling myself out by taking some photo’s on my QL19.

I worked pretty close to a Wal-Mart Shopping center, so I went a stood at the entrance of the store, in out of the rain. My intention was that I would get some interesting photo’s of some interesting people, being interesting at the local Wal-Mart. You know… to try and get some quality photo’s for peopleofwalmart.com…. –

As I was standing watching people run out of the rain, I was looking for that perfect person to snap a shot of running in out of the rain and capturing that pain of being rained on.

Just as I was looking out I saw a lone Umbrella go flying by in the wind. And then, the lonely misfortune owner of the umbrella running after it. – I knew right then that I needed to capitalize on the photo opportunity, but instead, I hesitated. I said to my self, “what if I get my 1971 Canon QL19 wet?” – I quickly bashed those thoughts back in my head and darted out in the rain after the man chasing his umbrella.

The battery in my camera is dead, and I’ve been searching for a replacement but they don’t make the type battery anymore, so I’m searching for one that could work. – Saying that, The internal Light meter doesn’t work in my camera. So, I’m totally estimating the camera settings. – It’s slightly underexposed.

I should have ran up closer to the man, but it seemed like he was about to catch his fleeing umbrella, so, before I lost the picture completely , I took the shot on the 45mm lens from a distance. I wish I was closer and more intimate.

None the less it is a testimony of being at the right place at the right time.

The Heckler.

The Heckler

Heckler :

verb (used with object), heckled, heckling.
– to harass (a public speaker, performer, etc.) with impertinent questions, gibes, or the like; badger.
 
It cost 12 dollars for a beer at The Rogers Center and this guy was drunk as you can get before you start regretting it. I’m talking Loaded.
Every batter from the opposing team (in this case the New York Yankees) that came to the plate he had to yell at and tell them that they sucked. Except when his hero’s were at bat (in this case the Toronto Blue Jays) he would yell and tell them to hit a home run baby!
 
The real interesting part of this whole situation was that he and myself were sitting in the outfield on the upper, (in this case third) deck of a Major league baseball park. Formerly known as the Sky Dome. Over 450 feet from home plate. With my understanding of sound physics. There was 0 to .3% chance that a player on the field would even be able to hear the slightest sound coming from his mouth due to sound dispersion of such a vast amount. Along with the low hum of the crowd noise, music being played and the announcer over the PA system. Regardless and un-phased by physics this guy proceeded to yell at every single Yankee player, to make sure that they knew of his professional unbiased MLB critique of their performance.
 
This shot was taken on my Yashica FX-D – 50mm SLR. He really didn’t notice me pointing the camera at him so I took my time and made sure I took a photo of him screaming full boar while attempting to not drop his beer over the edge.
