Morning Shadows

Morning Shadows

When I worked on The Commons in Ithaca, NY I liked to take photos in the morning prior to the rush of shoppers showing up.

The Bird

The Bird

I don’t think I posted this one yet. Ah, who knows, too many irons in too many fires this week. As soon as the sun rises I have to switch to woodcarving until its time to shower and go to work. Need 6 carved projects finished by the end of the month for a juried exhibition into a gallery. Work, work, work, and it never seems to get me anywhere. Heres hoping!

Taughannock Falls

Taughannock Falls

This is the highest falls on the Eastern seaboard of the United States, Located North-West of Ithaca, NY on the shore of Cayuga Lake. It was a great day for film for me. Shot about 4 rolls and about 400 digital photos. My passion is shooting waterfalls.

July 4th Storm

July 4th Storm

July 4th, a time for fireworks, brutal hot weather and sunshine. On this particular 4th of July in Ithaca, NY there was a very strange storm. The huge cloud hovering over the immense Cornell University on top of the hill was a golden color due to the setting sun behind my tripod. A cloud of green came up through an adjacent valley (yes a green cloud, which signifies a hail storm) and merged with this cloud over Cornell. It began to thunder and lightning and continued to for hours. I got some streaks of lightning on film going the length of Cornell University. It actually hailed and then the clouds began to drift away just in time for the fireworks. And I got some decent shots of them also.
If anyone has ever been to Cornell University they will know that the buildings on the hilltop are rather large, so that ill show you the scope of these enormous clouds.

Of A Lifetime

Of A Lifetime

This was the shot of a lifetime for me. A seagull diving for minnows. I only had a 5 mp camera with a 3X zoom and this was mega far away. So I cropped like mad on the computer and got this photo. It pixellates when printed over 5 inches. but I am proud to say I was only shooting for about 3 months when I got this shot.

In The Fall

In The Fall

I shot this photo many moons ago using my first real digital camera. It was a 5 mp HP, and it only had a 3x zoom lens. It was a great learning tool. I snapped over 85,000 photos with it over a few years time. I like the moodiness I presented in the photo of the old dock which was on the shore of Stewart Park in Ithaca, NY. I used Jasc Paint Shop Pro to do the editing. One of my favorite muted color photos.
