Getting Drilled

Want to bowl a perfect 300? You should probably start with a good bowling ball. This is a nice starter ball – getting prepped at Striker’s East, where the pro shop has limited hours, but an incredibly friendly staff and reasonable prices. If you’re going to buy a ball, find a local pro-shop and buy […]

Rage

I snapped this photo of stenciled letters off of a passenger car on a vintage steam locomotive train. I’m not sure what significance the letters are supposed to have, but I thought they made for a nice image. …and since it’s been a week since I took a photo, I dug through my archives to […]

Fair Ride, 2011

About a year ago, I posted a couple pictures of this ride. Today I took photos of the same ride, but after dark. I like how they turned out. These first two images are down by a fog machine, and the last is up high above. Once again, I didn’t ride. 🙂 It’s called the […]

Blue Skies

This photo is all about negative space. I think the shapes in between the steel are more interesting than the structure itself.

Mechanical

Today’s shot is another train photo from West Virginia. I was able to step just a little further back, and in spite of these gears size, captured a nice cross section of the rusting metal. It’s an interesting tourist attraction, but the engineer mind in me wanted to know how much it was worth if […]

Toothy Maw

I had the macro lens on my camera when I came across this old railroad equipment, and I couldn’t step far enough back to get a shot that showed much more than this. These gears are about four feet around, or just over a meter from one side to the other. I think it turned […]

Jester

This jester sculpture is actually part of a lamp – it resides at a relative’s home, and I see it once every couple of years or so. Last time when I tried to photograph it, I didn’t have as nice of a camera, and in the soft light, the image turned out blurry because I couldn’t hold the camera still enough. This time, I’m much happier with the results.

Pipes

We’ve seen this photo before, but something always draws me in to photos through enclosed spaces, so I took a couple quick shots when I walked by some large drainage pipes being used for a project in my town.

Drip

I don’t consider this an exceptional photo by any stretch – rather, it’s just another from the new lens in my bag, the Nikkor 105mm micro. It’s a pretty long lens, and capable of focusing very close up, as seen in the coffee bubbles the other day. Here I was using it to try to […]

Decrepit
