Frozen Soapscape
February 28, 2014

I revisited the idea of frozen bubbles today.  God knows I have more than enough chances this winter to go outside and freeze them at dawn. There I was, 6:30am, right before I left for work, lying in the snow in the middle of my yard shooting bubbles no bigger than a half-dollar.  The larger ones kept popping once they hit the snow. I had about 20 tiny frozen orbs scattered in this area, and I am sure neighbors once again question their choices, just waiting for the light to hit them the way I wanted. Not bad, still wish I could get the larger ones to last, I could show more detail, but I am happy with the results. Here is the first set from last December. This will be attempted again, but I am ready to call it for this season. We don’t need to keep it cold on my account.

Good Dinner
February 27, 2014

Tonight we had homemade mac & cheese tonight, don’t tell my wife. I hated it. Not just because I am not fan of cheese, not because it was not crunchy, more because it was it was ugly. It did not make a visually pleasing subject to photograph. I needed a photo for the day, I was relying on dinner to be my shot. It failed, I did not like the food, I did not like the photo. What I did like was last nights dinner, because it was good, tasted great, smelled awesome, it was colorful and made an interesting photo. So, I made it the photo for tonight and dumped the bad one below.

I teach a photography class on Wednesday nights – well Wednesday nights that it does not snow. Tonight we covered long exposures where I stood in front of 6 camera for 20 second exposures spinning light sticks. Then we worked on panning, chasing my son’s toy truck down a counter. Here is a shot from the practice session we had at my house before class.

1949 to 2013 but still cousins. I find myself using the GoPro more than I thought I would, both for photos and video. I can’t have too many cameras.

We have been going through old photos, the ones printed and in albums, not on the computer… the kids were confused, why would we waste so much paper?

I got behind on my planned Simpsons week, so I shot them all today – I am sure there will be more in the future, until then, here is Lego Simpsons Sunday.

Two for the Wall
February 22, 2014

We had to get out of the house today, and stay out. It was nice to be outside in air, sun, without a shovel in my hand. We went to Old Sturbridge Village last 4th of July, it was the day I lugged all my camera stuff with me only to find out in the parking lot I had no memory card.  I ended up using a pocket camera and got some incredible shots. Since we bought a membership back in July, we figured it would be a great place to go hide today. This time I had the memory card, and again the full kit, though I did not shoot a ton, I do love this shot.  We were in the hallway of this beautiful old house that had been moved to Old Sturbridge for display. Believe it not it was pretty crowded, not only in the village, but this hallway.  There are probably 10 people to each side of us.  I had the kids line up just right, waited for my chance to snap the shot before someone walked in front of us.  I got a few questionable looks, but it was worth it. Check out the rest, or if you want to see the ones from my July 4th visit, all in black and white you can click jump over that post here: thedailypic•Yr4•276/365•The Blacksmith

Naked, Wet & Alone
February 21, 2014

OK, so this should quickly become the most viewed post I have. Welcome all you, people… screw it, let’s call it like it is, welcome all you men.  You men that googled, bing’d or whatever’d the words “naked”, “wet” and “alone”.  I am happy to have you join me, my name’s Tim, some call me timricephoto, others trp, does not matter, I am happy to have you stop by.  I photogrpah many things, toys, landscapes and yes I have shot boudoir photos, as far as you know that is what this shot is for… yes, that’s it, this IS A boudoir session.  There is a lovely lady on the bridge, see her? see the bridge? In the back? How close are you to the screen?  Damn, you know what, it was kind of foggy. Luckily the tree is also Naked, Wet and Alone, so as advertised I have not let you down.  But since your search engine brought you here go over to the left column or the bottom and click that subscribe button, or one of the shares or even better BOTH. Takes no time. There is a new photo everyday… who knows, maybe a naked Lego will show up in one of them. Nice to meet you.

Some people head out in the morning and scrape their windshields, I go back in the house and get a camera. From inside the truck, from outside, each direction another unique scene.  Some people have garages.

Doing things backwards this week, since the Simpsons took up Monday and Tuesday, I am making #toywednesday’s photo a landscape.  We will go back to more Simpson Lego shots tomorrow and Friday.  I had to go out and walk around this morning at 6:30, the light was perfect and only comes this time of year.
