Walk the Tracks
August 31, 2013

Quote of the day -“My mom’s eating your truck.” said by six-year-old friend, Darren.  This morning was my second session with him, we met a the park last year, this year it was an adventure on some rail tracks and a walk in the woods.  And just like last year it took most the time for him to warm up, but the smiles showed up before it was over… especially when I pretended to be very upset about the whole truck eating incident that he was very proud of, whatever it takes to get the photos. By the end I got some great photos for his Mom and I still have a truck. All is good.

I was scouting some locations for shoots this weekend and came across this.  Thought it was cool.

Pentax Auto 110
August 29, 2013

Another one from the collection.  I have actually used this one a few times.  Introduced in 1978, the Pentax Auto 110 is a cool little camera, even though it is a horrible format. I got it for $5 and a disposable camera when I owned my store. A kid came in the shop and said he had just bought it for $5 at the “Junk Sale” some charity was running in the parking lot.  He wanted to buy film for it, he was eager to take pictures and really had no interest in the fact that it was a good camera.  It was 1997… I did not regularly stock 110 film, not much call.  I think he was 13-14 years old, I remember he was ticked. He was determined to go back and yell at the people who sold him the camera, as if they would care.  I offered to pay him what he paid for the camera, then I tossed him a disposable so he could shoot photos right away. He left happy and I had a new camera for the collection. It goes for $50-$75 on eBay, even more if I had some of the other lens that go with it. I think it was a good investment.

No Photoshop, just a patient daughter and some strategically placed lights and backwards letters. I also got some new business cards, these are to hand out at events. Your first chance to get some are this Sunday at the Tradesman in Milford.  I will be shooting crowd and band photos at the Labor Day Weekend Bash. Check out the details below.

Anna found this one and said I had to shoot fast, it was pretty cool. Had only a split second to shoot it. So, I finished my New Hampshire trip photos.  I have added a set of my favorites below. Already sold some waterfall shots (thanks to those that asked).  Yes all – well most- photos are for sale, placing an order soon if any one sees anything they like. Thanks for looking.
