    and

    Not so recent vacation

    Steve -
    Actually this took several attempts. The first day I checked on the "when" I should attempt the shot, and then whent back the next day to set up at that time. 10 frames at various exposure times to get the one useable print. If I remember right - this one was 2.5 or 3 seconds at F16 using my Canon F1 35mm. Ran with a Cokin filter system, polarizing some on top of that, tripod mounted, and a little additional darkroom tweaking. To be honest, I did digital darkroom work using Paint Shop Pro.

    I use to shoot semi-professionally many years back, and I was also the 'criminal photographer' when I was in law enforcement. Now, other than some vacation shooting, I don't have the time for all the effort involved. And even when I'm on vacation... it seems I have little spare time to do all the other stuff too.
    During my peak days, I was known to shoot 100 frames a day just to get 1 or 2 shots I really liked. Shoot 3 or 4 rolls (slide film) and then go home and develop it. And I use to carry a pocket recorder (and spent alot of time talking out loud to myself) so that I could remember the frame settings on multiple shoots. I still own 4 35mm's (1 with a motor drive), 1 two-and-a quarter, and a Crown Graphic. The Crown shoots a 4"x5" negative. I mostly used that one for portrait work. I also have a full color darkroom set up and can produce up to a 16"x20" paper size.

    PS - I also collect antique cameras. But that's a hit-n-miss hobby now too.

    Perhaps if I get time, I'll dig through some of my old stuff (I'd need to convert from paper to jpeg) and post a few here.

    Latest trip (not a great shot, but not too bad considering I was in a moving car with the windows up!)...

    And THIS is my finger sporting a 1970 Colts Superbowl ring!!! Yes, it is a terrible photo- but the ring was too cool (plus, it serves as proof that the Colts were actually half decent at some point in their illustrious history...). Now we need to bring a Lombardi Trophy to Indianapolis!!!

    Big Smile Looks like rain

    This is a shot one of those afternoon seabreeze storms that blow up here in the "Sunshine State" from time to time in the summer.

    Pete,
    Next time you're up this way, try the FDR memorial at night. It's magnificent.
