light angles


[saying goodbye] Europe in the winter has some very harsh light. The sun doesn’t get very high in the sky and the shadows are long and dark. Italy is on roughly the same parallel as New England, which many people don’t realize. The Mediterranean Sea factors largely in the weather in Italy, keeping it hot […]

Vado a Napoli


On August 4th I’ll finally be going back to Napoli, Italia. It feels like forever since I was last there. I had hoped to see Italy during the spring but it didn’t work out that way. My guess is that I’ll have to save that for a future trip years from now. It’ll give me […]

8th St SE


    8th St SE, Washington, DC Washington is constantly undergoing changes – buildings being razed, others being built – but as much as it changes it stays the same. I love wandering around and finding traces of what the city used to look like; little nooks and crannies that have managed to resist the hands […]

This was taken in Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy. I was walking around this fountain when I saw the two men talking. I really really wanted a shot but didn’t want to be obvious so I sat down on a bench across from them. Setting the camera on my lap I hit the shutter and […]



    This was taken in Lawton, OK. It’s a combination car wash and vacuum station. The Agfa Vista 100 film I used gives the scene a very old fashioned appearance. Since the film was expired I had no idea what would turn out, most of the shots have this same look to them. [vacuum]

evening stroll


I believe this was taken back in February. We attempted to visit the Capitol Visitor Center but got there 30 minutes after it had closed. I had my Canon EOS Elan 7 with a roll of Agfa Vista 100 film in it. I’d never used that film before or tried to get low light shots with such […]
