Is it broken?

IMG_1054.jpg

After jumping off the stage at the end of his set… Marcel, Lead vocals and guitar of band called Die Hexe , announced to the audience that he thought he broke his ankle.

For the rest of the show, he was be asked probably around 100 times.. if it was broken..

no word yet from the doctor whether or not it is actually broken.. but pretty punk rock regardless of the outcome.

After dropping this camera down a mountain, I’ve started wrestling with light leaks. Some may say that Light leaks are creative and artsy, but not when you are trying to take a non-lightleaked photo..Duhh.

This was one of the few on the roll that was not affected. Haven’t really figured out why yet.

Thank you so much for following, and reading my blog.

The World Is A Beautiful Place (day 23)

hurtsometimes

Going through these old iPhone photo’s I’m realizing that I’ve taken a lot of pictures of objects. It wasn’t until I got a “real” camera/ DSLR that I began to take pictures of people in people situations.

Even among’st our man made needs, the beauty of this planet will far overwhelm us.

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.

Walking On Sunshine.

Image

 

I was at a wedding a few days ago, and like most weddings they had a dance. That old song, “Walking On Sunshine” came on. you know the one with the “Wooh ohh” part after they say the words “I’m walking on sunshine”? Yeah that one.

So while up dancing my legs off, and working up a fat kid sweat, I started thinking what it would actually be like to walk on sunshine and if that is actually possible. I’m not talking about walking on the sun… No, I’m talking about walking on light. The shine, from the sun. Sunshine. 

Quickly did I stop thinking about this just as a beautiful girl moved and danced in front of me (my gf) :).

I took this photo a few days ago. The Location is the shore of Lake Erie along Rondeau Ontario. It’s shot with a Yashica FX-D Quartz 35mm SLR, with a 50mm lens. – I don’t know the exact settings. But I know it wasn’t a full closed aperture maybe 11 or 8, but I know it was 1/250 shutter speed. 

If you haven’t noticed by now, the photo is extremely over exposed due to the light from the sun reflecting down on to the clear white sand and into all directions. A clear, clear sky made the sunlight fall down like a water fall that afternoon, and leaving me with a slight sunburn….

The Silhouette of the girl is walking on the sunshine.

The sunshine glaring down on the sand. The sunshine burning my face. The sunshine beaming through the lens and over exposing itself onto my 400iso film. The sunshine that brings life. The sunshine that brings darkness. The sun, shining, allowing us to live, allowing us to be.

Two Left Feet.

I find that an extreme bout of happiness can only be stopped dead in its tracks. Its never really a slow fade from the happy emotion rather a sudden drop. When we are happy it takes something like a brick wall to stop our path of happy destruction.

I feel the same way about darkness and sadness. When we experience extreme bouts with darkness in our lives it takes a freight train to turn that around.

I’m talking about the lowest of lows darkness, close to the edge of life type of stuff. Not, had a bad day darkness or tweet about your sadness you felt for 3 hours one night after 2 am and call it depression.

Here is a photo of some feet that mean a lot to me. That in a sense, knocked me out of a hole I’ve been dwelling in for quite sometime.

Never mind the stains on my left foot there…. 🙂
