Another dragonfly


Here's another dragonfly from that same day.

Another photo for today

Here is a photo I just got to process. I took it this summer, but with a dead computer, I got a bit delayed on developing photos.

All of the dragonflies were very indifferent to me, not even caring if I got within a few inches of them with the front of the lens.


Yours in Christ,

Fading Memories

This is a tribute to my Grandfather. He is the reason I'm a photographer, and the reason I shoot with Pentax. He died 10 years ago, and try as hard as I may, I can't stop memories of him from fading away.

Been awhile. . .

So, my computer died this August, and I just replaced it today with a brand spanking new MacBook! I just got the base model, but I have 4GB of RAM on the way from Newegg to really make it scream.
So, here is a photo I have wanted to post for a while now, but never gotten around to doing it.

So here it is:

What do you think?

Photo of the Day 21!!!

I've been gone for a bit, but my lovely Fiance has been asking me to get back to posting a "photo of the day"again. I'm not sure if anyone still reads this blog, but if you do, thanks for sticking with me. Without further delay, here is the 21st photo of the day:

I have a back library of around 150 photos to post, and I'm always shooting more, so I shouldn't run out anytime soon.

She said "Yes!"

After the Easter Vigil, I asked Katie to marry me, and she said yes!

Here's the ring!

Photo of the Day 19

Sorry about my long absence, and thank you ghostwriter for a nerd game post.

Here is one I just took a week ago:
Pentax MX_31Hosted on Zooomr

Taken with my Pentax MX
Pentax SMC-M 100mm f/4 Macro

I liked the color that I got with these leaves, even in the dead of winter.

So anyways, I've been a bit busy with work and school to post much, in fact I was a bit busy to shoot until last week. I know I said I was going to post more, but it just got away from me.
I really like shooting film, but unfortunately, I just can't afford to continue to shoot film now. Besides film cost and processing costs, I really would need to get a film scanner, and the one I want runs in the mid $400s. That is not the real issue though. Nikon seems to be quietly discontinuing the model, as it is only available every 5 months or so. That would only leave the $900 model, which is out of my budget. The answer to all of this is to get a Pentax dSLR. It seems the perfect time to buy one as Pentax is giving some rather major updates right now.
I'll post more (hopefully) from now on. And expect lots of photos, and a possible domain change when I get my dSLR.

Yours in Christ,

Some changes in store. . .

Hi all. Here is my post explaining my absence. As you know from most of the posts, I have developed a love of photography (NPI). In fact, I love it so much, that I have decided to study it. I am changing schools for the fall semester (most likely to UMass Amherst), and am going to try and study Photography and graphic arts technology. As some of you know I have been working in Digital Printing/ Preress for close to five years now, so this isn't a terribly huge jump. I will try and keep you all updated on what is going on, and how my photography is going. Stay tuned this week for why I am shooting more film than digital photos.

Yours in Christ,
