Photo Friday - 'Animal'

Tiger Forest at Indy Zoo

Well, I guess I'll just stick with the tiger again, this week.

 I hope you don't get tigered of seeing them.

SPC - Reflective Surfaces - #4

SPC - Reflective Surfaces - #4

This is not at all what I conceived when I stopped for this shot. My intention was to use one of these, but when I loaded them all as layers, I noticed that these three aligned (accidentally) so nicely that I put them in as clones.

Any resemblance to any real flags, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Seriously.

SPC - Reflective Surfaces - #3

SPC - Reflective Surfaces - #3 The kids started up with swimming lessons at the local YMCA again. They're both doing great. They seem to take to it naturally and have good strokes. They're both in small classes because soccer is still going on (which affects other kids who might otherwise be in swimming lessons). At least, that's what I've been told. 

Afterward, they were curious about the racquetball court and when I noticed the reflection, I knew I had my shot for this week. You can see Hannah off to the right of frame there. She was looking for a light switch, I think.

Photo Friday - 'Glowing'

One Night Before Supermoon March, 2011 - One night before Supermoon. This is from the Sam's Club parking lot at 96th Street and I-69 if you can believe. The windsock indicates the nearby airport (Indianapolis Metropolitan Airfield). Looking east here and getting the glow on the silos from a setting sun (or already set, possibly) behind me. The dusky sky allowed for a proper exposure on all three elements, here (sky, moon, silos). I think I played with levels on the silos to enhance the glow that was there, but I liked the final image.

Photo Friday - 'Near'

Ripples A macro shot of a thin stream of water coming from our bathroom tap. If you look closely, you can see my face (sideways) refracted in the water.

Photo Friday - 'Cars'

So, I get an e-mail around 1am every Friday morning from Photo Friday notifying me of what the new theme is for the new week.


"No problem," I think, confident that I already have something on my Flickr photostream that will fit the bill. 

I do have several pictures of cars, but they are nearly all pictures of a car -- isolated. I didn't find a picture that clearly featured more than one car. Maybe I'm being too literal about interpreting the theme, but that's my nature.

So my SPC shot this week (immediately below) used an old Kodak Duaflex through which I had run some 120 film before I finally got around to using the camera for TTV (through the viewfinder) work. I shot the film last fall and had it developed shortly thereafter. The images were mostly underexposed and lacked contrast. I wasn't sure I'd ever get around to making them public on Flickr. The SPC shot this week was the impetus for going ahead and making the images public (though there are buried in my stream because they were uploaded months ago), and here, now, I find a use for one of them:df012

I guess I prefer posting a shot with zero cars instead of one with only one.  Makes sense to me!
