Sorry, I guess that I haven’t felt the blog bug much as of late considering, what, its been since feburary that I last updated this thing.

I have been pretty active over on my flickr page, but you know. Blogging takes work sometimes. I am going to resurect this though because witht he impending move to Chicago, I will likely have (a) time on my hands, and (b) plenty to write about. So stay tuned.

Spine and Ribs on a wire.

A spine and a set of ribs found at the entrance to a clearcut out McGowan Creek Road. I thought that this was really creepy when I drove past this, but as I was backing up to photograph it, it occured to me that I might do exactly the same thing if I had found a bunch of cool bones out in the woods. Yet again I might have just left them where they were. Regardless of how they ended up hanging ona wire, I like this image.

The rest of these images are from the sportsman’s show on Saturday. There was very little of note except some taxidermy. The rational for killing and stuffing critters eludes me. Is it so hunter can remember the animal? If I was close enough to that bear to shoot it, you can be sure I would be able to recall it.

Just sayin’………

$5 at Goodwill

January 29, 2008

I recently bought a Olympus XA at Goodwill. It is really small, has user adjustable f/stops, and a rangefinder. Hot dang! I have run three rolls of film through it so far, and I must say that I am not super impressed as of yet. But I doubt that I have taken it off of the widest aperture setting yet, which may account for the general unsharpness of the camera. None the less the images have a delightfully large amount of vignetting around the edges just like my ol’ Lomo justa before it sunk to the depths of the Siltcoos river.

Here are couple of my favs.

The Headless get left behind.

Not bad for $5.
