a while back, just for fun, i tried taking a night photo while waiting for a friend in monument square. i tried thirty seconds, forty five seconds, and a minute. they all came out about the same, which makes me question my ability to count seconds, but it was fun anyway.

coastal photograph

i've been bringing my camera with me to sailing practice, as you've probably noticed. this means that i have a great many photographs that i took on the water, subjects being boats and birds and the odd skyline shot.

a photostudy: andrew

i recently had the privilege of shooting a roll of film with my good friend andrew. he very patiently was the subject of maybe an hour's worth of photographs. here i present andrew, in living color.

thank you, andrew.

a query

i had a few pictures [two] left on a roll in my ricoh from forever ago [see "summer: another backpost".] i found some sunflowers on concord st that wanted to be photographed, so i obliged.
i'm not sure which one i like better. the portrait one i think is more about the flower with no distractions, just brown and blue. i think i did a good job of showing the dead flower with that one. the landscape photo has something, though, that i really like. any input?

i love maine in the fall. i love the trees and the breeze and i love wearing heavy sweaters. i love being on the water in the fall, feeling the wind on my face and salt in the air. as interpreted by k.t. Strasse, i present to you, moste proudly, "fall."
for the following pictures, i used asa 160 slide film "velvia" and had it cross processed and printed with negatives.
the portland skyline a bit before sunset. quite a dramatic effect.

the second ugliest building in portland:

420 coming in to dock. it was getting chilly at this point:

my second attempt at a panorama. i'm pleased with the results:
