Late Night on a Pier

It was a dark and gloomy night, the air thick like soup.  The lights carved a path out onto the pier, guiding my steps to a destination lost in the fog…

Lost in the Corn

Fall 2013 Film1-16

Another image shot on my Nikon FM for a film class.  I found this old tractor seemingly abandoned in between corn fields.  Such a shame for this classic to be wasting away in a field, as though it had been put out to pasture.

Afternoon Paddle

In June of 2012, Duluth experienced a rainstorm that was one of those “once in a hundred year” events.  My basement ended up with several inches of water which damaged some my photography equipment, including the telephoto for my Nikon FM film camera.  It had a fine coating of silt that would have cost more to repair that the lens was worth.  But, rather than throw it out, I decided to shoot a roll of film with it and see what would happen.  As you can see from the image, it adds a slight gauzy effect, making the scene sort of dreamlike.  Although I don’t shoot film as often as I used to, I plan to keep the lens in my bag and think of it under the right circumstances.

Human-made structures come in all shapes and sizes.  This collection in Bogota Colombia is just one example of human creativity.

The Old Fishing Shack

This shack is famous along the north shore of Lake Superior.  I’m sure it has been photographed hundreds, if not thousands of times.  I know I have captured it in various lighting conditions, different seasons and a very strange close-up of the window on the door.  It involved flies and a reflection of my hands.  If you are ever on the north shore, head up the scenic highway and look for a street sign for Stoney Point Rd.  Besides the shack, there is also some great ledge rock that, under the right wind conditions, can produce some fantastic waves that crash against the rocks.  It’s also a popular spot for surfers.  That’s right, I said surfers.  You would be surprised by how many surfers live around here and surf the inland sea.

Photo Bombed

This is an image from several years ago when I was able to spend a few hours in New York.  I did my best to take advantage of every minute I was there. I had five hours from the time I got off the train at Penn Station and had to be back on the train to catch a flight out of Newark.  I managed to visit the Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park and Rockefeller Center.  I realize I barely scratched the surface and know I will be returning someday.
