I recently had the chance to go rock climbing with one of my oldest and best friends. There is a reason his mom has gray hairs.
I find it fascinating to watch the way people communicate. There is such a noticeable difference in the cadence when people switch from business speak to office gossip.
I took this over the summer. I used the flash along with the natural light to make sure I got all of this rediculous scene.
In the small town of Staunton Virginia, quietly nestled in the hills of the Shenandoah valley there stands an ominous looking building that is sure to catch the eyes and imaginations of any passerby. Having two eyes myself, I was as curious as anyone, and once noting the equal curiosity of my friends it was settled. There was nothing to do but go on a good old fashinoned urban spelunking adventure.
I love handing out little versions of one of my favorite photos. It feels like progress.
I would like to thank everyone who helped me fine tune the design. Let's just say picking a font is a little more work than it sounds.
Recently I watched a documentary on Phillip Glass. In his early years her received a lot of criticism for his repetitive style, and how he was "Destroying Music" by straying away from classical music and style. Clearly he has not destroyed music, and has come into his own right as one of the greatest composers. He said something that stuck with me, and inspired me to experiment with lenses. He said "If you aren't doing something that requires a new technique, then you are probably doing something that has been done before. "
Thus began my quest to be slightly more original. The quest that has lead me to build my dream lens. Not because it is perfect, but because it creates a dream like effect, and one that I hope will lead me closer to my dream being a better and more original photographer.
