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.

Great Weather For A LightHouse

IMG_9069.jpg

I feel like a Lighthouse would enjoy great weather way more than the rest of us. I mean that if a light house was an actual human of course. Like imagine having to stand on guard every moment of every hour of every day, ready at all times to lead people home?

You don’t get to move, or leave, or take a break. You just have to do your job, all the time with no questions asked.

You are single-handedly responsible for keeping people off the rocks that could lead to them crashing and drowning to their death. What kind of responsibility is that?

I feel like, on good weather days (Days without a potential storm in the middle of the night) that a lighthouse must feel some sort of overwhelming peace. A relaxation that only a factor that is out of our control yet leading toward the side of caution can grant. A peace so freeing that you can’t help but feel alive.

A Lighthouse must love days with a great weather forecast.

If a light house was a human of course…

Today, I turned down a Job opportunity.

I don’t actually have a real job, so that was probably a bad idea.

I turned down 35k a year. ( which is significant in comparison to my 12k a year I’m making now)

I guess, I’m just not into money.

Maybe I’m into funding however.

Money is a tool to help you get other tools, so you can accomplish a goal.

Money is not a net that catches you when everything falls apart.

Money is a mirage.

Maybe life is a mirage too.

Anyways, I said no to an opportunity that was big. However, by doing that I through myself blind into something much, much bigger.

Hope.

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.

Thanks for reading.

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.

Hamilton Harbor

IMG_2327

Grabbed up my film gear one night and headed down to the Hamilton harbor to try my hand at some Long exposures on film.

The beauty of having a DSLR handy is that you can find the effective settings that you can use on the SLR so you aren’t clicking and praying that you have the setting correct even after proper light metering and such.

The above photo is a long exposure with 2nd curtain flash on my 60D, of my SLR taking a 3 second long exposure.

The below photo is the photo that the SLR took.

Albion Falls

 steps

Took a crack at some long exposure waterfalls the other day. This is Albian Falls in Stoney Creek/Hamilton Ontario. The waterfall Capitol of the world! – About an hour away from the great Niagra Falls. – I bought a couple ND filters for my 18-55 kit lens on a cheap Chinese photog website for about 10 bucks. – So I lugged my sturdy tripod , film and digital gear down into the valley that is the falls and carefully stepped from stone to stone to try and find a angle that would look good. – Also, learning how to actually us an ND filter. – Turns out, if you put 2 on at once everything turns purple. – maybe that’s just cause mine were really and I mean really cheap.

Two Souls.

I was dabbling with some long exposure stuff while on the beach of Lake Erie the other day. It was an overcast day, but quite bright outside. – As in a previous post on this blog, while dabbling with long exposure in the middle of the night, I walked in front of the camera, stood still, then walked away, allowing a silhouette of myself to burn an image onto the sensor. Leaving the clear see through ghost look. – Same thing with the above shot. I set a 8 second exposure time and my girlfriend and I walked in front of the lens counted to three and walked away. leaving a really cool burned over exposed ghost thing happening.

Sort of a metaphor for people who are passing through in life. Definitely present but never there.

It feels like the horizon will soon devour us.
