A Winter Day in Three Tones

Told you I'd be back!

Here's some shots I took last week that I just got around to messing with. These are all from the same day, but I love how a little tweak to the tonal range can make a winter day seem either dreamy or gloomy.

Anyway. Enjoy!

Where Have I Gone?

Hello, blogworld!

Miss me?

Of course you did.

Or not, because my wife is the only one who asks me about posting here anymore. I want to try and get back into this, and hopefully share some new images soon and with greater frequency! I recently purchased a Lomography Diana F+ analog camera kit that I'm super excited to use (and have used; just need to get them developed) and share, but I also want to just start shooting more in general.

So keep an eye-ear out for new stuff (hopefully) within a week or so!

Day 1: New Year

Happy new year all! I'm only kidding; I'm not actually starting another 365 days of photos, but I thought it would be funny to trick you all. I'm so evil and stuff.

Anyway, I actually did take a few photos the other day when it was snowing, so I thought I'd share those. That way I've done a post and it should keep a certain someone off my back for at least another couple months. ;) Just kidding.

I do wish I could post more (and take more photos for that matter), but this PhD thing has been pretty overwhelming the past couple semesters. So I guess I'll make a resolution that I'll try and post at least once per month (if not more as time allows), and we'll go from there. Feliz año nuevo otra vez!

This one was just ridiculously good timing that that bird happened to fly right into the frame.

Hey! A New Post!

So I've been taking a bunch of flak for not getting these pictures up sooner. But better later than never, I guess. It's from the Over the Falls Festival at Ohiopyle, which some of you might remember from last year as well. Here are a couple of my favorites from the day.

I just now noticed the person standing on the right part of this one. Oh well....

Playing With New Lenses

I got two new lenses this past week. Both are Sigma. One's an 8-16mm (I love it!); the other's a 55-200mm (haven't used it too much, but it's great so far). Here's a few photos that I've taken so far from around town and at the zoo.

The first are with the 8-16mm.

These are with the 55-200.

I'm Baaaaack (Sort Of)

Greetings, all. Apologies for the lack of posting at all lately. Apparently PhD coursework is much more time consuming than I had anticipated. Anyway, I hope to start posting at least fairly more regularly now. While it doesn't mean I'll be here every day, I do hope to at least get up a post a week--at least until the semester begins in late August. Then who knows. To kick things off, here are just a couple of photos I took while walking up to the store this afternoon.

Night is Coming

Hey all! It's been a few weeks since my last post. Did ya miss me?! I'll admit that I haven't really picked up my camera much lately. After taking photos every single day last year (well, except for once or twice), it was nice to step away for a bit.

I went down to Pittsburgh the other day. I was just leaving Spak Brothers (where they make a delicious vegan pizza and seitan wings), and I couldn't resist getting my camera out for this. I wish there had been a bit more traffic (only one car drove by; that's the red streaks) to get more streaking, but the sky is really what it's all about. You can really (in my opinion) see night creeping in.
