My Infamous Underwear Photo Shoot & the Passing of Time

Tags

, , , ,

I just noticed it’s been a couple of years since my “infamous” Underwear at 50 photo shoot! Sometimes I take a glance back at the photos and usually I decide there are lots I don’t like. I just noticed this one that I kinda liked this time around (click it to see it against a dark background):

It’s got a different “feel” to it than the one I posted originally from this particular shot location.

Maybe it’s because I didn’t think this one was “comical” enough? I’m not sure.

It’s pretty common for me to go back to sets of photos I took in the past with “fresh eyes” and see photos I like that I didn’t like the first or even second time around. Strange phenomenon…:p

The GrassRoots Festival in Trumansburg, New York is coming up this July and I realized I hadn’t really gone through the photos I took at last year’s GrassRoots Festival! So here now is a bunch of photos I took at last year’s festival!

A Hot Day at the Ithaca Festival (2015)

, , , ,

Today was the 3rd day of the 2015 Ithaca Festival (Saturday, May 30, 2015), and it was a hot one! There was a thunderstorm in the middle of the day that either cooled it down slightly or made it even more uncomfortable because of the additional humidity. In any case, it was quite hot in the sun!

I took a short stroll around the festival after the thunderstorm and tried to snap fragments of scenes that captured some of the festival “flavor”…:-).

2015 Cornell University Graduation Weekend

After photographing a graduation event I was paid to photograph, I decided to take a stroll around campus to capture some of the graduation ‘scenes’ going on, street photography style. It was a quick stroll, but there were many ‘scenes’ to be ‘seen’…:p.

Here now is my skewed experience of Cornell’s 2015 graduation weekend captured over a span of about 40 minutes (just to give you a sense of the density of stuff going on…)

Art Museum Photography

Tags

, , ,

I sometimes try to talk my children into going to the local art museum, and they usually respond with “Nah” or “No Thanks”.

Well, it was my birthday the other day and I used the ‘leverage’ of it being my birthday to suggest we make a little visit to that art museum and then go out to dinner at a local restaurant. Even though they were predictably underwhelmed by my proposal, they obediently went along to appease the birthday boy‘s request.

Even though I’m not one of these photographers that always has his camera with him, I almost always have a camera when I visit an art museum. Most art museums allow you to take photos if you don’t use a flash. (Sometimes, they’ll have restricted exhibits where they don’t allow *any* photography; but that seems to be the exception rather than the rule.)

It’s not taking straight-up photos of each piece of artwork that I enjoy (most of the museum goers I see seem to be doing this), but rather looking for interesting juxtapositions of different artworks with each other, with respect to the museum’s architecture, in relation to the people visiting or working at the museum, or just a different distorting perspective. In short, I’m looking for any interesting compositions that catch my eye.

Here are a few shots I took during my latest visit for/during my birthday…:-).
