Fade. (day 21)

fadedtree

Before I owned a real camera I owned a iPhone 4. – I never had a camera or took many pictures before having this phone. 2 megapixels this 1.9 megapixels that. But then I acquired the iPhone. i was able to easily take and upload pictures. – The first pics I took were of strangely.. Natural Gas Wells – I was working in a Oil & gas field and took pics of pipes sticking out of the ground. – That was the when I got the bug. Seeing an object that suddenly has personality. Seeing a bunch of pipes come to life because of the image.

So I started taking pictures of lots of things.. thousands of things.

My iPhone 4 recently died. It lasted almost 4 years. So, not to be a fanboy, I bought the iPhone 5s. The thing has a freaking finger print scanner on it are you kidding me!

Anyway’s , I’ve been trying to rescue the pictures off of my iPhone 4 and am compiling alot of the pics that I took, Edited and uploaded, only using the iPhone.

This is one of them. – Kind of a mystic Fog happening around the tree, but it’s actually just over exposed.

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.
