Pinhole Photograph

On August 24th, I attached a pinhole camera to a sign post looking Southwest over the marsh near our house. Last night, I removed the camera and scanned the negative. The exposure totaled about 68 days long. Here is the result.

Two-year-old Film

About two years ago, I shot a roll of film in a plastic camera, lost it, then found it a month ago at the bottom of the fridge. It seems like I consistently find a roll of film in this manner at a rate of every two years. While I don't find any of these images particularly interesting, I can't help but wonder how much longer this trend will continue--with films being discontinued left and right, and prices of existing films going up. Actually, you Kodak aficionados will notice that this particular brew of film no longer exists. In fact, I think it was three years old at the time I shot it. But I digress. There is something fun about this unintentional game of lost and found. Some may cringe and call it wasteful--to buy and shoot a $5 roll of film, only to neglect it until it is found during a quarter-decade fridge cleaning. But hey, it's fiscally more logical than playing lost and found with a digital camera. Believe me. I found this behind some wilted spinach, and the pictures are crap.

Photographs of Wood[peckers]

Earlier this year, I collected and photographed pieces of wood that were formed by woodpeckers. Here are a few of the results. The bottom (out of focus) image was made (on worldwide pinhole day) with a pinhole camera with a woodpecker carved lens--of a woodpecker roost hole. Now that's meta.

For Kurtis Blow

Recently, as demonstrated in my most recent posts, I have been perusing my photo archives. Here are a couple images of, well let's be honest, not the greatest home basketball courts. But home basketball courts, nonetheless. Kurtis, if you are reading, this post is for you.

Cosmic Brownie Cat

Yesterday, Cosmo celebrated his 4th birthday. I was looking through some old scans, and found these  images I made of a couple of his destroyed toys. He and I are no strangers to collaboration, as seen here,  here, and here. I believe we are the only working felis catus/homo sapien artistic duo. However, if there are others, I dare say we are the best. Curators and collectors, please inquire.

Bird Watching

Recently, I have taken up bird watching as a minor hobby. I enjoy it for these two, non-exclusive reasons:
1. It heightens my awareness of my immediate surroundings.
2. It gives me an excuse to spend more time in some pretty cool places.
So, here are a few landscape photographs that have some birds in them.

In case you were wondering, the birds in the photographs are (from top to bottom):
Miscellaneous shorebirds
Boat-tailed grackle
Black skimmers
Summer tanager
Miscellaneous egrets
Eastern towhee
Cattle egrets (and deer)

Photographs from the AT

A few weeks ago I went hiking on the Appalachian Trail. The photographs are in North to South chronological order, spanning from Nolichucky Gorge (Erwin, TN) to the Allen Gap (Madison County, NC); a total distance of about 50 miles.
