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.

Canon 60D Kit lens blah blah blah

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.

Bought a Canon QL19 Rangefinder at a second hand shop the other day. After work I was out on the patio of the restaurant I work at with some other coworkers. There was a particularly bright over head light on a very calm night. So I tried my hand at some smoke portraits.

The battery in the range finder was dead so I was estimating shutter speed and things, because the internal Light meter needs the bat.

Thanks For Reading.

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.

 

Thanks for reading.

Keeping The Smile

20140617-172053-62453231.jpg

Sometimes when we least expect it, the smallest yet most significant things in life will fly by without us ever acknowledging or realizing their, or the moments, existence. How often do we only desire the future, do we only desire anything but the here and now. I do this all the time, my only wish is for the things that I am anticipating or something weeks away that could happen.

This photo was taken on a 35mm toy camera with a slight bubbled fisheye 35mm lens on the cheapest 400iso film I could find. – I bought it for .99cents and was hoping it would produce some interesting light leaks but turns out to work flawlessly – it even has a hot shoe for a external flash.

I was walking around the old city on the river (Gault) with my girlfriend Sarah. She was joking around saying she wanted ice cream and started pulling my arm, so I decided to joke and pull her the other way, I was holding the camera in my other hand, turned it and without looking through the view finder, snapped this photo. It was one of the first photos I had taken on it and I wasn’t even sure if the shutter was opening all the way.

I love this photo. To me , it’s one of the best photo I’ve ever taken, if not my most favourite. Not because it’s in perfect focus or because it’s perfectly framed because it’s non of those things. It’s actually a terrible quality photo.

The best thing is the smile. The best thing is the emotion. The best thing is the happiness.

The best thing is that I captured a moment that would have been forgotten, that I actually forgot ever happened until I got the film developed. I had to search my memory and ask Sarah where and why this photo happened. It just brings about so much joy to my soul when I see this photo. This photo doesn’t just represent a image, it represents a moment in time.

Thanks for reading.

This is Sarah.

This photo is taken in the 59th Street Subway station in New York City.

The Bokeh or Blurr makes it hard to see that there is actually a subway train racing by behind her.

Homework and a Scared Dog.

Image

I posted a few day ago, with a photo of the small dog named Barney wearing little boots. Well I can’t tel you how nervous and scared that dog is of the male species. – I think that’s common however with some Dog abuse cases. If, they are abused in anyway by a male human, they can’t trust any Male human ever. – I think Barney is the same way. – I’ve never done anything to harm or abuse him, and I frequently go out of my to attempt to make him feel safe, but he still remains like a 9 year old on the top of the CN tower about to walk out on to the Glass Floor for the first time, Scared for his life.

My girlfriend, Sarah came over for the afternoon, and instantly this Dog become the most loving and happy puppy ever, to her. But the moment I would look in his direction, speak or move, he would start shaking and run away.

This photo kind of captures that fear in the dog.

Ok, enough about the dog though. I LOVE this pic because of the lighting. The back of the couch is against a really big bright window, So I though that it would over power the exposure of a picture in this direction, However, there was enough light coming off the computer screen to fully illuminate Sarah and all her homework frustration.

I took the photo as a test shot, attempting to set up settings to to take a photo of something else… a cat actually.
