These have sat on my shelf for about a month.  A friend dropped off some of his collection to photograph.  This is the last of the batch, the General Lee and Bandit’s Trans Am. Took them outside, grabbed a piece of asphalt left over from driveway repair, used a tilt shift (lensbaby) lens and played. I want to start shooting more forced perspective images. I had thought to taking these up to a parking lot and make them look like they were parked with other life-sized cars, just not enough time.  I have some ideas though, stay tuned. Until then check out the rest of these 2 cars. Cars are 1:64 scale.

My wife has uncovered some old photos from her youth. So, since it is #throwbackthursday I photographed the set so she can share. This one was my favorite, I am going to guess the brilliance of the photo might actually had been caused by poor camera skills.  My wife claims this is her first photobomb, apparently her parents were taking a before picture of a kitchen renovation and she thought it was important to be in the photo.

Wrong Kind of Different
January 29, 2014

Everyone is different, no one is the same, working with that premise, we are all the same, in the fact that we are all different. In order for this statement to work, we need to accept it, all of us, but that will never happen.  Adults have trouble accepting differences in people, children even more. There seems to be a fine line between unique and different. Unique – being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else. Different – not the same as another or each other; unlike in nature, form, or quality. Unique is celebrated, different not always. Is there a wrong kind of different? Kids know it, they sense it, they can smell the wrong kind of different. Sometimes they ignore it, sometimes they chase it, sometimes they try to wreck it, mock it, pick at it. Yet unique is, well, different, it is encouraged and treasured. “Johnny is different”, “Johnny is unique”… me, I can see the space between them, kids can too. Strive to be unique, be cautious about being different, never conform but try to belong.

A few months ago the great Ray Auger contacted me and said he wanted to take a photo. We brainstormed some dates, set the location at the Milford TV studios and planned to photograph the artists that make up the Greater Milford Area Local Music Scene.  Until 15 minutes before the shoot we had no idea what to expect. Two, Ten, Twenty -five people? Would we be standing there alone? Then the masses arrived, around 50 musicians to represent what is a great community filled the room. Thank you to all for coming out. Stay tuned for what we have planned with this photo. Enjoy the extra single fingered rock and roll salute.

This morning I hung out with the incredibly cute, 7 week old, Miss Olivia. She was a trooper for the whole session, outfit changes, flashes going off, her jealous dog, nothing bothered her. These are really the only shots I had of her fussing, and they were the last ones I took. I always make sure to get some crying photos, they are just as important as the smiles. You never know what the reaction will be to an infant session. It helps that we took these at her house.  Some of my favorites of her are in her bassinet, she is just hanging out, no big deal that this guy is roaming around with his camera – all is good.  Check out some more shots below.

Icicles hang from my second floor window.  So naturally I opened the window so the heat from inside would melt them, getting them to drip for photos.  This is why I have heat, right? Of course I had to do this fast before my wife got home. Can you imagine if my Dad were here… I would have heard about the barn I never was never raised in.
