In October of 2014, I was asked to participate in the "Five Day Black and White Challenge" on Facebook. I set my Ricoh GR to shoot black and white and shot with it frequently during the "project". When it was over, I left the GR in black and white mode and I've been shooting with it quite a bit.
It's nice to get back to shooting black and white and I'm reasonably pleased with the way the photos look. I've created a new album "A Little Black and White" for these photos.
Okay, the break was a lot longer than I expected, but I have a nice backlog of photos and a few new cameras to work with. Hopefully, I'm back to posting new work frequently and, even better, looking at new work frequently.
Given my paucity of shooting last Winter, I'm taking a bit of time off from posting work here.
I am still shooting daily or at least almost daily. I'm trying to accumulate some photos to go through during the cold, dark and possibly damp months of December, January and February. I figure another few weeks should get me far enough ahead that I won't run out of photo stuff to do over the Winter.
See you soon.
I'm trying to take photographs of the Cushman factory in Lincoln, Nebraska as it is slowy demolished. I believe the demolition is supposed to take seven months and I plan on shooting there several times a week until the process is completed. Cushman was a big part of Lincoln's economy and, at one time, employed 900 people. I'm trying to document the destruction of this facility and, I hope, make a few good photographs in the process.
There is, and will continue to be, a lot of repetition…
The photos I post on ipernity are works in progress and not finished. I often post two or more very similar photographs so that I can look at them side by side to see which one I prefer. These are more like proof sheets or work prints than finished "exhibition" prints.
At some point, if I get ambitious, I'll post my choices to an album of "selected" photographs.
