This is an image of an omelet. Emily took this image. Doesn’t it look tasty? All I can say is that yes, yes it was tasty.
There is an old decommissioned bridge on our way to work. The highway department was getting ready to tear it down (or were clearing up around it) and I went to get pictures of this horribly terrifying thing (I try my hardest to avoid dilapidated bridges). As I drove up, I found this Datsun 510 that had been pulled from the ravine below the bridge. It obviously had been there forever, and seeing it, looking inside it, really made me wonder about the turn of events that put it there. Was a crash the reason the bridge was decommissioned? Why was this car not pulled out before now? Who are the people associated with it?
The “eyes” of the car stood out to me; the angry “eyebrow” demonstrated what a car might be feeling when run off a bridge and left to rot at the bottom of a ravine…if cars could feel.
So I went to Chicago recently. Emily had a conference to go to so I tagged along for some sight seeing and image taking. We had breakfast and then I proceeded to the nearest train to head into downtown. I walked around for a bit taking a few images here and there as I headed towards Grant Park. I had not been in Chicago since I was six so the whole city was new to me. I spent the whole day walking all over the city with my camera gear. It was windy with some rain off and on. Anyway as I arrived in Grant Park I saw a statue that struck me. It is called Magdalene. I was there for a little while shooting away. Today I finally got around to working on one of the images. This is one of my favorites from the trip. Anyway I hope you enjoy this image.
So I took some test shots in the studio with our new equipment. We learned much and we have a better understanding of how to light a person. The studio is not quite finished as we need some backdrops and a couple of other minor things. Anyway here is an alpha test shot of Emily.
