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.

Walking a Dog in NYC.

NYC Pug

I feel like owning a dog in NYC would suck. It would have to live in your small over priced apartment. It would bark and make your neighbors mad. Dog hair. Dog smell. Dog poop. You would have to walk it down narrow busy streets full of tourists and pissed of cab drivers. Then when it decides to take a crap on the side walk, you have to grab the little bag a pick up its crap while 300 people eating pizza and wearing “I heart new york” t shirts watch and shame you as if dogs aren’t supposed to poop.

And then not to mention some long haired Canadian guy will decide to take a picture of your dog as your’e walking it down the side walk in hopes that it will do it’s business so you can go back to your apartment, throw on Netflix and stress about how you’re going to make your next rent payment.

Life yahknow?

anyways.

I’m less afraid to point my camera at animals than I am to point it at people. This dog still didn’t seem to impressed.

This is on some small numeric street in west Manhattan last week.

         Last fall I dropped my Yashica SLR down the side of a mountain. After hitting what seemed like every possible rock on the way down, the back opened, to expose the ever expensive kodak portra 400 film to the elements aka the sun. After recovering the camera I wound the film up and claimed it to be completely burnt, meaning there wouldn’t be any usable pictures on the roll.

Read the full story here.

Some months have past since then and I have been staring at the wound roll on my desk in remembrance of that day.

Eventually I couldn’t take it any more so out of curiosity, I went ahead an had the local photo shop develop the roll for me.

To my amazed excitement, there were a few usable photo’s that had been tucked/rolled tight enough into the spool still visible on the negative. – So, not wanting to pay quite a price to have the roll scanned post development, I decided to look up some tricks on how to use a flatbed scanner to scan negatives.

The method I chose was to use the light from a Smart phone or Tablet to light the back of the negative while on the flatbed.

It looks a little silly but to my amazement, It worked. (kinda) – I’ve never really been into “Lomo” culture but I definitely jumped in with this technique. What’s lomo?>click here.

The picture is of some birds on a wire.

I saw the mass amount of black birds migrating together on the wire and had to slowly stop my car, grab my camera, get close enough and take a picture. Only to drop my entire camera down a mountain a few days later.

There are a few other photo’s on the roll that I will post over the next few weeks. Feel free to follow along.

Again, thanks for reading.

Smear (Day 19)

I think this would make a cool desktop background. I’ll try it and let you know……. yeah it does make a cool desktop background. Are computers still a thing though? everything is a tablet now.

This is Downtown Kitchener Ontario during some light rain to smear the colours all over the place.

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.
