166/365 Freestyle Photographic Supplies



Freestyle Photographic Supplies is a catalog with goodies for people who still use film. They have an assortment of Holga and Lomo gear as well. This is my 365 project picture of the day. 

Dan Price is an artist who works with Simple Shoes, and writes his own books. He has a Zine called "The Moonlight Chronicles". This is in my 365 overflow set.

165/365 Holga 35 mm Camera




This is the Holga 35 mm camera. It's smaller than the regular Holga and shoots 35 mm film. 

This is my 365 project picture of the day. (The picture of me holding the camera with my hand.) The other pictures are part of the 365 overflow set.

164/365 Book


"The Queen Of Myself" is a book by Donna Henes given to me by my older sister. It's about women in midlife. It looks interesting.

This is my 365 project picture of the day.

I took this while on the bike trail in Granby, Connecticut. Very hot today!

Self-Portraits



These are self-portraits taken with the Canon G9 camera. These are in the 365 overflow set.

161/365


I don't know why I like this shot. Nothing special. Sick of the self-portraits of my face, I guess.

This is my 365 project picture of the day.

159/365 Pouring Coffee


It's my morning ritual. I'm running out of ideas this early in the morning. I may have to switch to taking pictures in the afternoon.

This is my 365 project picture of the day.

158/365 George Carlin Book


I am trying to read all of George Carlin's books. I read "Napalm and Silly Putty", which was hilarious. This book, "When Will Jesus Bring The Pork Chops?", is pretty good, but it isn't as funny. Maybe I need to read the whole thing before making a true assessment.

This is my 365 project picture of the day.

157/365 Self Black and White


It's the usual story of me being tired and reluctant to take pictures this early. This is the best I can do consciously, and quite frankly, Iif I took a picture while I was asleep, it would probably be better than this.

This is my 365 project picture of the day for now.

Starbucks in NoHo


My sisters bought ice tea at Starbucks. I had an ice coffee. This Starbucks is stiil open in Northampton, Massachusetts. It's a busy little store. It's right on Main Street.

My sister saw an older woman sitting on the sidewalk over by Thorne's Market all dressed in a tattered shirt. She was begging for money. Then my sister saw her in Starbucks standing in line buying coffee. This time she had removed the tattered shirt and was wearing a pretty nice top. I thought that to be very interesting.

156/365 Flowers (Canon G9)



These are the first of a few shots I took from the new Canon G9 camera. The picture with two flowers in it is my 365 project picture of the day. The single flower is in my 365 overflow set. The first thing I notice with this Canon G9 as opposed to the Canon SD800, is its size and features. there are so many features on this camera. The quality of the pictures seems to be better to me as well. I can certainly see the pictures displayed better on the bigger LCD display on the Canon G9 camera. Duh! 

I haven't been able to really take this camera out and test it, only having purchased it yesterday, but I will certainly be having a lot of fun with it. This is the display model, with over 600 shots taken on it, which kind of pisses me off, because they didn't give me a discount. I think Iris Photo Shop in Northampton, Massachusetts is such a small shop that they probably couldn't afford to give any discount. Still it makes me mad. I could have gotten the camera cheaper at B&H Photo, even with shipping and handling. Live and learn. 

I don't like the neck strap with the camera; much preferring the Wrist Strap and a small camera bag to throw it in when I am done using the camera.

154/365 Motion



I was doing some crappy self-portraits and then converted them to black and white. I then applied the color back on my body to make it more eery. The second photo is technically better, but I like the ghostly appearance of the 1st picture. 

The ghostly picture is my 365 project picture of the day.

Taken with a Canon SD800, and altered in Photoshop.

153/365 After the Gym


It was a scorcher today, even inside the gym where I did some aerobic activity, (elliptical machine). It's way too hot in Connecticut today, but I'd rather have summer heat than winter cold.

This is my
365 project picture of the day.

Alex in Sepia


This is Alex a few years back. I don't know why his head is chopped off, but I think I screwed up. I don't remember. I know this picture was taken with the Nikon D70 camera and altered in Photoshop.

152/365 Small Flowers


We have these in the front yard. 

This is my 365 project picture of the day.

I love these little eraser figures.

151/365 Persepolis


This is "The Complete Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi. It's a non-fiction comic book about Marjane Satrapi's life growing up in Iran. I borrowed this from a friend to read. So far, it's very compelling.

This is my 365 project picture of the day.
