grid thy lions I can't place this one. I think I might have done a grid and forgotten to mark it off. Fart knockers! Edit who knows but let's call it aa27 for now I guess. Lord knows I'm not going back wherever it is. Edit2: Forgot about street view. I'm relatively sure this is AA27.

a little grid humor



two more from the woods

the void

the void was a flooded lake in the fog - the lake and the woods and the air all melded into one. I guess that's not a void. A void is absence. This was an abundance. but the word void kept flowing through my head this morning out in the woods.

 the dismal streets of raleigh
 rode my bike to wilson! it was about 50 miles. my dreams are all about long rides now and renegade camping in a strand of pines. this was a nice stretch of country roads with very little traffic.
we went to a play in wilson. I was in my sweaty 50 mile clothes (got to learn how to pack a little better for these things). Dick Cheney skis in jeans and I bike in jeans. Took a few actual pictures along the way - hopefully this little olympus works!


10 year bandwagon jumper

my photography ... hasn't really matured or improved. jajajajaja. Golden oldies. Some highlights from January 2009. Good times and possibly the greatest snowstorm of my life.


boat storage in december or was it november

hopefully this loose wound vibe with the copious light leaks isn't a new recurring feature post camera repair. we shall see! also in camera news, this isn't the kind of thing I would have used to put out there (rip Jake I miss texting you) but crisp and I found an olympus infinity something or rather, akin to my dream point and clickers for $2! there are still deals out there folks. you just have to go to thrift stores and get lucky. Got a prime lens, flash control (including slow sync omg omg omg), sliding lens cover (a little loose so this thing is definitely not vg+) and after a new battery it was ready to fire up baybee. Will see how it really works once the film gets back but it sounds smooth. I compared online and these dumbass little things go for like $125 these days. so obviously getting lucky is the only way to go.

In other news CRISP was here in NC and we tore it up. Pictures to come.

these are so nice did I have a filter on there? I guess TriX is my new Acros. ACROS! Come back I need a slower version of you.


the 2018 pano misadventure returns! in 2019 form.


Malcom X park aka 2010 park


any photographers out there care to chime in? I'm rusty. Is this underexposed? Flash film slow shutter obviously. Did the flash maybe not even fire? Liked these guys' matching pattern somewhat. I think the flash fired, I think I just need to open up a bit.


the void

rober miller ripoff

this is very reminiscent of my college photography teacher's vibe. I need to get a darkroom setup! Miss the chemicals, miss holding something in my fingers, getting great prints. at one point I got pretty good at it.


on the plus side I'm toiling baybeeeee

2019 resolutions - blog the same amount

you'll never believe this but I'm confusing which grid squares are which. So take these references with a grain of salt. Whatever you do don't base any life and death decisions on the blog baby.

magic stand of trees old oaks

the way the wind was blowing through there was elemental. Happy 2019!


anyone got any good ideas for new years resolutions? I think I'm going to try to go all out in 2019.


white balance

I've been enjoying getting lights into my shots lately

raleigh grid project


Raleigh has lots of swampy woods


this was one of the nicest philodendrons that I'd ever seen. Ours is so paltry. Also I love the lightbulbs up on the shed. I swear to g is the lab messed up or did I really forget how to operate a camera? Several rolls back that all look either under developed or underexposed. It is most likely me.
cc dommengang I heard you need a new photographer
