Parked on the back row of a truck stop in Indiana. Had to quickly capture this out the right window of my truck, one-handed with my G12, as I was pulling out. Don’t know the story behind it but wish I did. This is not my best photo of April 2013 but it is by far the most interesting. Enjoy!

My First Stranger Photo #001 of 100

31 03 2013

His name is Jerry and I met him at a Community Center outside of Nashville, Tennessee. My son-in-law plays music there on Friday nights and they let people up on stage to sing over the evening and Jerry was one of these. He seen me taking photos of the musicians and asked if I would get one of him. I told him I had every intention of doing so and we talked for a while and when Jerry got up to sing, I captured it.

I was using a Canon 1D MkII and 24-105 f/4L IS lens, shot in Manual mode, ISO 320, f/5.6, 1/80,  with a 580 EX II in ETTL and bounced off the walls and ceiling. When I got home from my trip, I printed a copy and mailed to Jerry. Hope he likes it.

Friday night at Scottsboro, had a great time. The twins and the redhead are my grandkids and they made it even better. Didn’t get everyone’s photo but will try harder next time.

Took this shot on our way to St Louis, my favorite driver and chauffeur. She was deep in thought.

100 Strangers

17 01 2013

Okay, here it is. I signed up to do a 100 Strangers project a while back and have not done a single one! Have to pull myself together and get started. I really want to do this! Guess I’ve been afraid that if someone my age asks perfect strangers to let him take their photo, they’ll think he’s some kind of a weirdo or worse, and I really don’t like that idea. I do like the idea of this project and I really do want to do it, so this week, I’m forcing myself out with my camera and I’m really going to get a shot of a stranger and post it here. I also have to learn about this person so will post that info here also.

I will!!!

Dogs or Cats?

13 01 2013

Ran across this warning sign up in Iowa last week but it didn’t say whether it applied to dogs and cats, or just cats. I wonder?
