good morning, Monday!

Posted by bee3six5 on June 28, 2010

how will you treat me on this blessed Monday morning on my way to work?

oh i see, that’s how it’s gonna be today?

i’m going to get some tools

not so big now, are you?

moments after neighbor John (who so kindly came over to offer his assitance, which was a nice touch, being that it was his tree that i was cutting up) and i high fived, having defeated the tree.  now all i have to do to is drive back up the drive way, take off and wring out my clothes (it was about 90 degrees and humid as hell, though i always pictured hell being a dry heat…), jump in the shower again, get some new clothes, then head off to work.  yes.  it’s going to be a good week.

see you tomorrow

while on lunch today i received the following text from Dan: ‘you should grab some photos of the clouds today.  pretty cool looking to the south east.’

having left my compass at home i wasn’t exactly sure which way was south east.  but as soon as i looked up, i agreed.  it was the perfect cloud day. 

luckily Steff picked a sky shot.

see you tomorrow

visual trip: the Garden State Concours d’Elegance 2010

Posted by bee3six5 on May 23, 2010

so today was the big car show.  the weather didn’t hold up as well as we would have liked, but we did end up raising almost $80,000 for the Ashley Lauren Foundation.  in my book, that’s a good day (even though it was a looooooooooooong day).  i was the photographer for the event and i probably ended up taking close to 1800 pictures in all.  it was a great first experience for me as a photographer.  hopefully some of the pictures came out.  hopefully.

it’s not even that early, but an ungodly hour nonetheless

my ride for the day: a 1956 Ford Thunderbird

welcome!

registering cars for the show

always a favorite: the cartoon car

these aren’t the best pictures, i know that.  but i was going crazy all day, running around the entire park with my Nikon around my neck, and bag over my shoulder with 2 film cameras.  it was a crazy day and due to all the madness i kept forgetting to use my zumi (i’m especially pissed that i neglected my zumi when i got lifted almost a hundred feet in the air on the boom to a fire truck, it was awesome).  oh well, there’s always next year.

see you tomorrow

disclaimer: i do NOT condone, nor suggest, taking pictures while driving in the rain with your wipers off. 

but it sure makes for some good pictures.

 

i’m not sure how this is related to the picture (hint: it’s not) but tonight’s episode of LOST will be the last ever new, hour-long episode on a Tuesday.  sounds kind of specific, i know, but with the finale swiftly approaching i’m just trying to think ahead.  i’ve spent so much time theorizing about this show with Steff, Russ, and Jen (and anyone else who will listen to my insane ramblings ranging from ‘Lapidus is NOT dead!’ to ‘another energy pocket is going to explode, thus negating the Alternate Reality and leaving behind only the Original Reality!’) that i’m going to need something else to fill the void that’s sure to be left in my heart once this show ends on Sunday.

wow, i really just fanboy’d out there, didn’t i?  apologies, LOST brings out my true colors.  nerd colors.

see you tomorrow

visual trip: Lomography Gallery Store in NYC

Posted by bee3six5 on May 9, 2010

here’s what today was all about:

my DianaF+, el Toro edition.  it’s a medium format toy camera i got a few months ago and have been in love with ever since (fear not, my zumi, you’re still my number 1).  i saw online that there was a workshop for the camera at the Lomography Gallery Store in New York so Steff and i drove up there today to check it out.  we got to the store and paid $10 each and were given a roll of Kodak Portra 160VC.  Steff was given a loner Diana in exchange for allowing the store to hold her id for ransom. the two of us joined a small class and were then treated to a quick seminar on all things Diana: her start, features, film types and accessories.  after the slide show we all went to Washington Square Park to use up the roll we were given.  it was a really fun, hands on experience.  here’s how it went down.

we found the store nice and easy, but only after we got Steff a coffee

the message is clear: digital begone!

the store is really cool and has everything a lomographer could ever want

a nice assortment of Diana clones

the walls are covered with photos taken with the cameras sold in the store, makes for some pretty cool wallpaper

we left the store with our class and headed to the park (i say ‘class’, but it was just me, Steff, our instructor Hans, and two people who both seemed to disappear once we got to said park)

spotted these as soon as we got to Washington Square, no idea what they were

i’m pretty sure that’s the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in the background

ew, those birds are gross, i bet they have no idea where that guy has been

ok, so this is really funny to me: on the left is Steff.  on the right with a Diana on each shoulder is Hans.  in the middle is apparently the personification of the Diana, colors and all (as you can see from looking at the cameras Hans has).  i bet he planned that before he walked out the door this morning.  he knew we were coming.

on our way back to the car Steff asked me to pretend to take a picture so she could take a picture of me taking a picture.  well i showed her: i actually TOOK a picture while she took a picture of me taking a picture, and here is that picture

an example of how blue the sky was today

a cool angle

Steff shot almost a whole roll of film using her Holga camera while we were finding our way out of the city

she even took over the zumi for awhile and got this shot for 2 Black so he knows for sure what day Red Dead comes out

then she took this one which i TOTALLY love

that was pretty much it, after all that we drove back towards home and stopped at a diner

all in all it was a great experience.  i can’t wait to go back to the Lomography store to try out some more toys.  word is they have another workshop on June 3rd, but this time it’s for the LC-A+ (another camera on my wish list but a whole nother story).  we’re going to try our hardest to get there.  i’ll be sure to post the pictures Steff and i took today once we get them developed.

oh, and because i know you were wondering, i got the eggs benedict and Steff had two eggs over medium.

see you tomorrow
