POTD: Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Paris, France 2002

I was spending some time in the WABAC Machine (a.k.a. in my case as the many folders of old photos on my hard drive) and came across this from my photos of Paris ten years ago. (“Mr. Sherman, set the WABAC machine to Paris in 2002.”) It was taken with my first ever digital camera, a 5mp Sony F707, a very advanced camera in it’s time. Anyway, it seemed appropriate for Halloween. Note, if all this WABAC stuff makes sense to you then, well, you’re probably as ancient as I am. Actually I always thought of it as just the Wayback Machine. It wasn’t until I read about it on Wikipedia that I realized it was a reference to early computers such as the UNIVAC. I wonder if I knew that back then; probably not as I would not likely have cared about such things when I was nine or ten.]]>

It might as well be a mile between them.

POTD: Roadworn

Roadworn Southeast Idaho 2012

I took this on the way home from the art fair in Jackson, Wyoming last summer on an overcast day made even more dreary by August’s ever present forest fire smoke (oh, and a little Photoshop enhancement as well). I was feeling a little roadworn (but relieved) myself, having finished my eighth art fair road trip in less than three months.]]>

POTD: Transition

Transition Bozeman, Montana 2012

Another bit of color along with some snow; the transition from a kodachrome fall to a Tri-X winter. (Tri-X was my favorite black and white film back in the old darkroom days.) Here’s a related video but I must say I don’t agree with his comment about black and white. ]]>

POTD: Alone in a Crowd

Alone in a Crowd Bozeman, Montana 2012

Sometimes I come across a scene that makes me forget all about being a black and white photography enthusiast.]]>

POTD: Fire Season is Over

Fire Season is Over Bozeman, Montana 2012

I enjoy winter weather but the older I get the longer it seems to last–so long that I’m tired of it way before it’s over. So I’m fine with it taking its own sweet time to show up each October as it always does. This year is different though. The summer was so dry and there were so many wild land fires I was actually anxious for the first snow to arrive.]]>

POTD: Who, Who, Who Are You?

Who, Who, Who Are You? Bozeman, Montana 2012

We’ve had our townhouse in Bozeman for over a year and a half now but two days ago was the first time I looked out my studio window and noticed the owl looking back in at me.]]>

POTD: First Snow

First Snow Bozeman, Montana 2012

Yesterday was our first snow of the season and by first snow standards it was pretty significant. We got even more last night. Now the question is, have we had our last glimpse of bare ground for the year? Likely not given past history, climate change and all.]]>

POTD: Art in Passing #14

Art in Passing #14 Salt Lake City, Utah 2012

Hooliganism can be a real problem at some art shows.

POTD: Art in Passing #13

Art in Passing #13 Salt Lake City, Utah 2013

This little old lady came tooling into my booth using her walker, looked at every single print I had and then left without saying a word. I guess she didn’t find what she was looking for or was just browsing for the entertainment value.]]>
