Save The Date

My fiancée and and I decided to shoot our own Save The Date photos, here are my favorite from our session.  Maybe I have a future as photographer?

Day 309 (4 Nov 2012) A Night at the Tracks

Driving home this evening it was darker than I expected, probably because I’m not use to not having Day Light Savings (after all, its been less than a day!).  But I did notice a nice color on the horizon, so I pulled down to a boat launch near some rail road tracks I’ve shot at before and fired off a few ’rounds’. 🙂

I just realized it’s been a while since I’ve broken out my macro lens; I miss shooting macro! Keep your eyes open for a macro shoot this week!

Day 259 (16 Sep 2012) Down by the Tracks

Today I took the scenic route home from church, which ironically is shorter distance-wise than the ‘normal’ route.  As I was driving and enjoying the fall sunshine and scattered clouds in the sky, I saw a sign for a boat ramp I had not explored yet.  So hit the brakes, hoping they guy behind me was paying attention and cranked the wheel to aim my car down the heavily potted road down to the river.  I parked, took a stroll to the tracks that parallel the river, and did a little shooting.  As you probably know, I have a thing for trains and rail road tracks (I have several posts that feature rail road tracks, such as this, this, and this.)

Enjoy!

Day 114 (23 April 2012) The Other Side of the Tracks

Tonight on my way home, I took a detour along a road with some old warehouses and discovered a set of track between them and the river.  I just had to stop!  I love trains and rail roads, and night shooting, and old brick buildings and water.  I found them all in once place!!

The truck you see in the photo below is an oil deliver truck.  Many homes in the North East US rely on home heating oil for winter heat.  It’s much more expensive to heat a home with electric here, and unless you live in a natural gas supplied area, it’s either wood or oil.  The “oil” is just un-taxed diesel fuel.  Many homes (mine included) also use oil to make hot water for showers, etc.

These next two I almost didn’t even upload.  But I figured I would try B&W and see what happened. I’m happy I tried!

Day 64 (4 March 2012) The Workbench

This afternoon I was cleaning up my garage while waiting on a ‘job’ to show up (I do a little auto repair on the side; helps fund this hobby 🙂 ) and realized that my garage is FULL of interesting thing I can shoot.  I can’t belive I’ve been doing this project for 64 days, now, and all the times that I couldn’t think of something to shoot, this has been here all along, just waiting for a day like today.
