photos finally

so i went and finally picked up my film. in total i had 8 rolls of material, i thought it was 12… there was also one roll that i didn’t shoot, thats the roll that didnt catch on the spool.. i was disappointed. but wha are you going to do?

i made a quick scan through the images and scanned the ones i liked…

i still have like maybe 3 rolls left to scan but am being lazy, its such a tedious job but when you get around to it and see something you thought was cool on the screen its pretty cool…

i did other stuff this weekend instead of scanning i worked on my bike and got it running excited to start riding it to work…

but thats a topic for later. 

instead for right now ill post some images…

 

i saw this guy sleeping on his lunch break, he looked tired… i like how i framed the shot… 

 

one night me, talia, and chloe went to dinner at the cheesecake factory, its funny it always used to be me and talia going there now its us three… is so weird and cool to have a third person with us it was just us 2 for so long… well the photo was taken in almost complete darkness, sometimes i cant believe what i get from my canonet…i don’t think i could get half of the stuff from a SLR.

 

for some odd reason this is small…

i dont think it uploaded right…

well we went to dinner, and i saw these girls taking photos of themselves, i always think its fun when people do this… im sure the images wound up on myspace, but i find it cute… i was trying to catch the flash but got this instead… friends you cant beat that…

cruise on over to my flickr for a larger view…

 

as i was sitting there on the bench waiting for our name to be called there was so much going around me, the girls, then this little boy…

he was so into the case and what was inside… while everyone moved around him… i was lucky enough to capture it to film… it was just a cool moment…

 

Dan, this is our neighbor, a friend, and also a fellow photographer. he is such a cool guy we talk about so much sometimes… i respect this guy for his dedication to his boys and for moving on with is own life.

he has alot of stuff he has dealt with in his life but still he pushes on taking it day by day… and this guy can take a killer picture of a plant.

 

this just made me laugh i remember seeing this and laughing at it… thats all it was, was taken for kicks…i know i have seen it before, but i remember i had had a bad day and this just made me laugh outloud. it was just one of those things that can make you feel better about everything…

 

Dan let me borrow his Olympus SLR for a couple of weeks, i wanted to see how i did with it…

its been awhile since i used a film SLR so i gave it a whirl. ill have to look at the rest of the film before i decide if i did ok…

i don’t know we were laughing at something. 

 

another from the same roll…

 

i noticed i hardly have any photos of talia, either she doesn’t like them or she just doesnt look right to me in the frame.

but i love love this one…

i honestly don’t remember this…but i love it…

it looks like we were outside under the carport, if it is, the only light that was coming down was from the fluorescent bulbs. this frame made me smile. 

 

one morning on my morning bike ride to the starbucks, i saw these 2 guys playing. i saw them and knew i wanted the frame, i waited for a couple of minutes watching them i wished i got all of them in the frame, i had to set my coffee down and then shoot before they noticed me…

its a nice frame but it could have been better…too much headroom not enough foot room…

all i could think was man its to early to be thinking that hard, and man i wish i played chess decent…

 

i dont know whay i cut off his feet too..

too much head room..

i think its because i always think my depth of field will be shot when i focus in low light and i always pick a point with the rangefinder and then go with it..

i need to start focusing and then frame better…

 

 

i have this is color, i think i prefer it in color too…

i wanted to see how different it looked…

 

 

Guinness enough said, i dont think i ended up buying it…

damn i dont think my frame in camera is right for some odd reason, i cut the wheels, i need to back up more or something…

 

a nice evening,not cold not hot…just right to sit out on the patio and enjoy a glass of wine and pizza…

i loved how lights look on film like this… all kinds of white dots.

though i think snow looks way cooler on film..

lights bouncing all over…

 

i was shooting in this restaurant lit my candlelight, i saw this girl ringing up on the register…

tried to make a photo…

 

i liked the atmosphere here…

 

i went to florida some time ago, after our first night there me and my coworker walked like 5 miles back to our hotel, i shot some random stuff i have yet to go through all the negs. i love Laundromats, there is always a stillness there, like a moment where everyone is there and all that is left is the stillness…

 

i saw him also, i always wonder about people who ride the bus, i envy them too… meeting people, interacting with the world, its always changing. then there are the times where you just want to block everyone out and put on your headphones and be home already…

but your stuck on the bus. 

 

well thats it for right now. 

ill have to scan and post the rest later hope you enjoyed what i posted. hope this finds you all well on this hot monday… ps ill show my bike later, it rocks…
