We wake to another snowfall.
Mike Jonson, from the Online Photographer, had an article not long ago about shooting “found” still life scenes. I think that’s my favorite, doesn’t take a lot of imagination so suits me just fine. In the digital age, we still can’t seem to shake our need for books so a friend is building us some nice painted poplar shelves- something else that was wanted 30 years ago.
I’ve adopted this scene as my project for the year, I’ve always wanted to photograph the same scene through all the seasons and weather of the year. So here you go, a photo from a week or so ago.
We moved the pottery studio home from the downtown arcade. I noticed this window display during the move, I don’t think a policeman would find the excuse very funny when you said “No officer, I haven’t been drinking. That’s my beard oil that you smell.”
We bought back our first home after being gone for 20 years, a lot of it has changed and we had some work done before moving into it. But still is more like home than our immediate past home. For documenting some of the remodeling, I brought the Canon SL1 with the 10-22mm lens out of retirement and found I still love it even with the wide angle distortion. Considering what it does, the low cost, and the size- this needs to go down in history as a classic camera as well as the pancake lenses that go well with it.
With the weather changing by the hour this season, any sort of activity that needs fair weather would just be a roll of the dice. So, no surprise to find that moving day turns up with weather in which I have to even salt down the driveway to prevent injury. But it is done, finally.
I have a few pictures to catch up with.
Shot at the wonderful Museum of Radio and Technology in Huntington, West Virginia.

Meet Bob….he needs a home.
Took a drive up into Ohio and was treated with a morning snow storm. Made for some pretty car photography.
Bish Runyon gave a nice presentation to the camera club tonight. Along with a Lightroom demonstration, Bish gave a presentation that discussed iconic photographs and photographers. We had a nice crowd and very good meeting.
Eating outside at the what we call the fancy Taco Bell, we’ve experienced all the changing seasons many times. Usually at the same table until later in the year when the cold and the low lying evening sun makes us retreat to one of the warmer tables on the edge of the dining area. It’s a nice place to go to, even in spite of the fast food fare, usually it’s vacant and you could trick yourself in thinking that you were somewhere special, perhaps at a nice dining area hidden away where nobody has found it yet. Won’t be long until the lady is all wrapped up for winter, or maybe carted away for storage again.

Yes, more biking photos. I’m off the trails until later in the fall, largely, but you\’ll see photos from time to time.
