62 / 365 Tequila In Black & White

Set up and ready for downing.... I am allergic to tequila (no, really I am) so I don't shoot it except for with my cameras. I am more of a vodka type of guy... Another one from my play with film.

Have a great day! - Ed

61 / 365 Bombs Bursted

The "wreckage" after a round of Irish Car Bombs... Not too bad. No one was hurt in the production of this image. This is another of my B&W film images...

Have a great day! - Ed

60 / 365 Bomb Making Factory...

CarBombs of course! This was taken during the games of BGO V.

59 / 365 Beyond Her Years...

Finally back from the lab... here is one of my images from the couple of rolls of Kodak Tri-X 400 that I shot about a month ago. This was simply re-sized and sharpened for web viewing; and of course I added my watermark. I really like the shallow depth of field, I think I shot this at around f/2.8 or f/3.2. I think that I had much better results shooting the B&W instead of the color. Most likely will run another roll or two through the old body...

Have a great day! - Ed

58 / 365 Vanishing Parallels

I like how all of the lines in the image continue in the same direction; only to disappear into the blue...

Have a great day! - Ed

57 / 365 Comcast Tower

Here is another image of the Comcast Building; this time from the JFK Boulevard side...

Have a great day! - Ed

56 / 365 Urban Canyon

Another from this past weekend in Philadelphia... Taken from the middle of Arch St in front of the Comcast Building when the traffic cleared.

55 / 365 "5"

Another from my Ben Franklin Bridge outing... The lane number goes nicely with this spot in my 365 Project.

Have a great day! - Ed

54 / 365 Big Steel

One of my favorite images from the morning... and one that I was sure would bring the bridge police back for a visit. I guess they figured I was harmless as there were no additional visits...

Have a great day! - Ed

53 / 365 Delaware River South

Looking south towards another of the bridges; The Walt Whitman Bridge...

Have a great day! - Ed

52 / 365 East Bound

Just continue on straight from here; Camden is right over there. You can't miss it... I like how this image helps to show just how much arc there is to this bridge. From a distance; the bridge deck appears flat as it crosses the river.

Have a great day! - Ed

51 / 365 Dawn Touches Philly

The wind was blowing pretty hard as I was out there on the bridge walkway; making capturing a super sharp image almost impossible. I liked this composition because of the lines of the bridge; at least the portion you see here, along with the sunrise being reflected on the Comcast Building.

Have a great day! - Ed

50 / 365 Sunrise Above the Delaware

A milestone of sorts... I have reached 50 images in my 365 Project; it's just 28 days overdue... But progress is progress, right? I really enjoyed shooting from the bridge this morning; and aside from an officer and a few joggers, I had the entire walkway to myself.

Have a great day! - Ed

49 / 365 Cables and Clouds

Here is an image from my trip to the Ben Franklin Bridge this morning. This was the first time that I have ever been up on the bridge. This was taken from the South Walkway. It was very windy and I had a police officer stop and ask me a bunch of questions about what I was specifically shooting. I guess I gave the right answers; he told me to have a nice day and rode off... I will have more to share soon...

Have a great day! - Ed

First Film Image In Over 8 Years...

Here is an image from the first roll of color film that I have shot in almost 8-1/2 years... I adjusted it very slightly; cropped, contrast & color cast, sharpened it for web viewing. It looks like I am going to have to brush up on my film skills LOL... it was fun challenging myself. I am looking forward to seeing the results from my B&W images, sent out 2 rolls today and should have results in about 3 weeks.

This is Bach with his Winter coat... all shaved off now.

Have a great day! - Ed

48 / 365 The Break

Not sure why; but I always wind up doing the majority of my pool playing images in B&W. Maybe it has to do with seeing the The Hustler many years ago... This is one of the many images from the recently held BGO V. Once I get my new glasses; going thru them all should be a lot easier...

Have a great day! - Ed

47 / 365 Elise and Mr. Hop

Elise wanted a picture of her with Mr. Hop. Mr. Hop is her class mascot and she was selected to bring him home for the weekend. I am still waiting for my new glasses to come in; not having them has made editing images a real pain in the eyes (you were expecting something else?) Hopefully once I have them, I can get caught up with my backlog...

Have a great day! - Ed

46 / 365 My Girl...

Always was... Always will be. Just playing around; she wanted to give me a look like Mommy does when she's mad. Elise loves to pretend and play all sorts of moods...

Have a great day! - Ed

45 / 365 New Specs...

My favorite little model got her new glasses tonight after school. Elise was so excited, she let me get a few images of her to remember the occasion. Here she is holding her teddy bear "Bear Hugs"...

Have a great day! - Ed
