Glass Still Life

I shot more for my graduate work the other day, and once again after finishing the “serious” work I played around a bit with the light and my glass collection. I am always so fascinated by how light shines and refracts through glass objects. The glass can look perfect, and then once you see the shadows castĀ all the imperfections becomeĀ visible, and the light seems to bounce every which way. Each object, despite looking the same or at least very similar, casts a unique shadow. I don’t think it is something I will ever get bored with.

The Farm

Shortly after Thanksgiving Scott and I went to visit his parents’ beautiful farm. We were only there for a night, but the light that evening was stunning; richly golden with a low haze in the distance.

Also, to any Arabian horse fans out there, these beauties are for sale. Feel free to contact me for details.

Catching Up…

I have a huge backlog of photographs sitting on my hard drive that I need to post. Since I have today off I figured it would be good to start catching up some. Brace yourself for completely random, unrelated images that span all the way back to April…

And expect a few more blog posts (with a little more cohesiveness to them) later today!

Konza Prairie

A few weeks ago (yes, I am just now finally getting around to sharing) I went for a quick hike in the Konza Prairie. I had apparently just missed the controlled burns there, and was struck by how bare this landscape now looked. Also, I am indeed aware that I am slightly obsessed with images of vanishing points, so that is mostly what I shot while there. The contrast between the untouched path and burned land around it fascinated me that day.

271/366 – Setting

Holy crud I am behind. I am determined to finish this project at some point though…

*Friday, October 12
Friday I woke up and had a day full of sessions and lectures at SPE in Cincinnati. It was really an informative, great day. That night there was a gallery hop, and the light as we walked around was beautiful. I’m not much of a street photographer, so these were a bit out of my comfort zone, but I really love how this one turned out.Shot with my OM2 on Kodak Gold film.
