This is the penultimate posting of a small series of photos I have taken with a very simple single element lens attached to a Fuji S5 digital single lens reflex body. The soft focus and lack of color correction are appealing to me and I will do more. Much more.
Twenty or so years ago I found a small piece of purple vine on a sidewalk that turned into this plant in my window. This plant is the beginning of many years of porches (my own and others) full of setcreasea pallida and this year I have thirteen more large pots of this purple vine brought in from the cold.
This is one of the first photos I liked when I decided to take up photography again. I have taken many more photos of purple heart since then and will post a couple of recent ones that I like.
Having spent many of my formative years in rural Kentucky it has always seemed odd to me that this body of water in Central Park in the middle of Manhattan is called The Pond. I have always enjoyed the contrast.
I used to be in NYC for a weekend of work every March. If I wanted to get the feel of being in The City it had to happen early in the morning or in the evening. The photos I took were usually in the morning and snow in Central Park made for an excellent subject.
This photo "Outside My Front Door" is one of the first 4X5s where I was getting a correct exposure. I decided I liked the film and using my new Fuji 4X5 back and when I ordered more film it was already discontinued.
This is another 4X5 Fuji instant color photo that was in the show Permission 7 (beyond my own boundaries) that is officially closed although some photos are still hanging probably through this week. This one "Spring Grove 5a" has found a new home and I wanted to share it before it got away.
It turned cold and wet. The coast is dealing with a super storm. I wanted to lighten up and thought something pretty would be a fine change.
I loved growing a garden of Datura Inoxia and the scent of these evening blooms was wonderful.
If an extraordinarily talented photographer walks in the forest without their camera and then later explains in great detail what they would have taken a photo of is anything accomplished or achieved or attained?
Forty years ago I bought a Minolta SRT101 and immediately went out taking photos of everything. I liked black and white and went into a lot of abandoned buildings. I was under the impression that I was taking some good photographs. I had no idea that every one was photographing abandoned buildings. Apparently it is still a popular subject.
This photograph was taken about thirty years later. It is an abandoned room.
The colors are always there in the light. A prism can be used to separate light into its spectral colors. This time I used the reflection from some leaves that blew into the plants on my front porch and a camera.
