A couple weeks ago, I scanned over 100 images.
These were shot back in 1999 for Tom Petit's Color Projects class.  I had only ever printed a handful of night images (and only one of the ones below) before I switched projects.

I'm digging these, especially since even though I shot them 11 years ago, they seem new to me since I had only ever seen them on a 35mm contact sheet before I scanned them.

Anyway, I'd love to know what you think! :)

I have found yet another site to post photos on!  I've uploaded just a few images for now (including the one below of the Wonder Wheel at Coney Island).   I haven't explored the site much yet, but seems okay... why not?

what a doll!

one of my favorites of one of my favorite people, my niece Emily. 
I've always thought that she looked like a doll in this picture... can't believe my little munchkin is already 11 years old and has her own cell phone!!!

i love this

...because nothing in this universe happens just once. Nothing. Infinity goes in both directions. There is no unique event, no singular moment.

one time celebrity photographer...

When I was a second year student at NESOP, I had an assignment in Advanced Black & White class to photograph in low light.

I had heard that David Boreanaz (at the time, Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, now he's Agent Booth on Bones) was going to be signing autographs at a store in the Prudential Center.  I was (and still am) a Buffy fan, so part of me wanted to go for that reason.  Then I realized that I could use the event for my assignment.  I assumed (correctly) that there'd be some crazy fans waiting in line, so I decided to document the scene.

I waited in line just like everyone else, and photographed the fans and their posters, pictures and books etc., that they brought for David to sign.  I remember when I got to the front of the line, he was friendly, and gladly posed when I asked if I could take a photo of him.  I had my crap 70-210 Quantaray lens, and about 5 seconds, so I was extremely lucky to get what I got!

I was watching the Opening Ceremony last night while I was doing some photoshop on one of the roughly one hundred images that I just scanned.  I was mostly just listening while I worked.  Until k.d. lang started singing.

I'm not a k.d. lang fan at all, but when she started singing "Hallelujah", first, I didn't know who it was, then when I looked up, I couldn't believe who it was.  I was blown away.  Hers might be my favorite version of the song.

I wanted to post it here, but the International Olympic Committee apparently doesn't like to share, and several posted videos on youtube had already been taken down this morning.  I tried the nbc website, but my iBook apparently can't handle the new player that you're required to have in order to view any of the site's content.

I highly encourage you to check it out if you can find it.
