Staring at the Future

Have you ever stared into a pool wondering how your life got to be the way it is? Maybe your life is wonderful. Maybe not so wonderful.

Maybe you are just having a bad day and think that it is not wonderful.

Roll-by

A railway Car Inspector watching a train leave town. Actually, there are two of them. One on each side. Canadian National Railway (a.k.a. The Evil Empire) hates the fact that this has to happen. It is the one thing mandated by the Regulators that they have not weaseled out of.

They watch the trains looking for the defects which they are not permitted the proper time to do while the cars are stationary.

Perspective

Perspective allows one to view things in their relative importance. It is a very important part of being a socially conscious person in the ever changing world. Some people see how small changes impact the larger world.

Do I speak drivel?

The Blood Spattered Wall

Thursday, March 27, 2008

This was not shot today . . .

We awoke to see a few inches of @$&@ing snow had fallen. It is supposed to be @$&@ing Spring.

Pussy Cats and Sleeping Babies

You can't see them but they are on the other side of the lake.

Shot on Kodachrome film in September, 1975.

March Madness

Yes, March Madness is in full swing. That is the time when you look at the snow wondering when it will finally disappear. Then, as it finally begins to recede, you notice all that nasty dog crap lying about.

March is that time when every little glimmer of sunshine makes the world feel so full of promise, at least until the next cloud bank rolls in.

March is the time when you check to see it you have enough Air Miles to escape this god forsaken land.

March is the time when a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of washing his car.

And down in the U.S., the USAnians think it is about basketball.

One Hour Martinizing

She kind of looks like she is being martinized at this very moment.

Shot on Fujichrome in 1979.

Under the Flag

I don't know who they were but they sure seemed happy.

Shot on Kodachrome in July, 1980.

Born March 22, 1925

An old Kodachrome shot from 1977. Not very good but you can see the mischievious look in her eyes.

Kitchen Boomerang

Have mice living behind the stove? I guess the Kitchen Boomerang will be of use.

Enjoy Coke

Today is a good day to enjoy being alive. I know that will surprise some people.

Another Cowboy

I feel like I have been riding that horse. The head is pounding. The world is spinning. Nausea.

Poor me.

I Am Now A Believer

I never believed in Sasquatches or Bigfoot (Bigfoot? Bigfeet?) and then I spotted this print. The quality is not that great but is there ever a clear shot of them or their tracks?

Freedom

What is freedom? That is what I ask myself.

Cars are good machines but . . .

can you imagine having a car trained to back up and keep the rope taut?

Small rodeos are so much better than those big commercial shows. You can get much closer.

Shot on Kodachrome 64 with Canon F1.

Some days you just have to get out to play.

Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water

It was a beautiful day. Makes me think spring is on the way.

Where is the sun?

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

A Cry For Help

It has been a slow newsday so this is the best I can do.

High Performance

Inner City Boxing is far from the inner city. I guess city sprawl takes a the inner city away one bit at a time.

Riding The Leather

Ok, one more Williams Lake Stampede shot. You just know that when the front legs hit the dirt, the back legs are going to kick like hell and that is going to be a tough moment for the cowboy.

Pacman

My apologies to those in Eastern Canada but
it
was
gorgeous
today.

Bucking - Ilford FP4 - 1977

I know it isn't a great picture but what like is the sheer power of those animals. You can't really understand it until you are close to them.

I would rather have a camera strap wrapped around my wrist than the strap that guy has.

Pictorialism

My pictorialist stage in 1975. Pretty crappy. Ilford HP 5 film.

Sometimes I feel like I was born 100 years too late. I should have been forced to pack a huge view camera around on my back.

Of course, if had been born then I would be dead now. No blogging.

The Glow of a Warm Fire

It was a day like any other day. I sat in my office looking at my Private Investigator's license and thought to myself "I always wanted to be a fireman."

A New Beginning

What a negative sign. Why say something is ending when you can say something new is beginning?

Soft edged road begins.

The Door

I stepped slowly to the stairs. Who knows if they are ready to see the sight that I present. I took another step. Then another. Then . . . fell on my butt.

Oh, well. The door was locked anyway.

Musician Jeff Healey died yesterday.

Maple Leaf Gold

I admit it. Pig day went by with no pig shot. Maybe I should just delay it and have it on the Orthodox calendar. Orthodox Pig Day.

Red Sun Rising

I wonder how the world will look in a hundred years. What has that to do with the photo? Nothing.

My Story

My photo

I got my first camera, a Canon Ft QL, in 1974. It was supplemented by a Canon F1 in 1976 so that I could have a camera for black and white and one for colour. 

I still have those beauties but now they have eased into retirement. They relax on my shelf beside many other old beauties.

Now I use a Canon 5D MK II. How convenient to use one camera for both colour and black and white.
