thedailypic•Yr8•194/365•2751•The Bridge

I added a new lens to my arsenal today – a 14-24mm wide, as with most of my new equipment over the years , I took it to Choate Park for a test drive. Somewhere in my boxes of photos I have a black & white shot taken at this same location, I used my brand new at the time Pentax K1000, my hand me down tripod, loaded with a roll of tri-x film. It was for a photo class in college, 25 years ago. I took a whole roll in that spot and developed them all by hand. Today, 2 shots and done. So much has changed in so many ways, but the bridge is still the same.

Related, I am having an open house at my studio this Friday night, April 14th, 6:30-9:30pm. Plenty of Medway and non Medway photos on display and for sale. Stop by and check them out if you can, I have some give aways and will be shooting One Bulb Portraits.  Sorry these will not be there, but orders can be taken for any of my photos. Scroll to the bottom for more info.

Josie came home today, a trip north with my wife, a fun visit with the breeder and home in time for the kids after school. She was a pro in the car, then it was new experience, after new experience,  with a few naps in between- all great, minus the cat intro… Misty will come out of hiding in a few days. I believe Josie will fit in quite well. And of course we had to hit the studio for a quiet photo session. She is a poser. I am not used to that, I love all my photos of Parker, but I fought for each one. This little one just poses, I only get a few seconds before she charges me, but its all I need. She is just 8 weeks old, I will do my best to not turn the dailypic into a profile for her – but be patient for the first week… if you do want more Josie photos, follow her Instagram page – @timricephoto_josiesmalls.

thedailypic•Yr7•141/366•2332•Making the Switch

Yr7•141-366•2332•Old Switch

The house is undergoing some renovations and additions, some new walls, doors, lights, etc. It is wrapping up, I’ve got some painting to do and it will all look as good as an old house can. I have found myself looking at this switch throughout the project. It does not belong, it is kind of ugly, with a yellow tinted, aged face plate, the switch is black, instead of the expected white, far too loud by today’s standards and is way too high on the wall – almost a foot higher than a normal modern install would be. Now it just lost a neighbor, a window that did not look outside (now that is is a sad existence, really a window has one job and as far as I can tell it had not seen outside since the 40’s). Now, the switch’s job did get more important, it is now controlling a nice new light instead of a $8 temporary (3 years too long) characterless, bulb holder. So it did get that.

This is not the first time I have considered changing it, the room has has been painted before and it came up for review then just did not make the cut. The theme of our house is “nothing matches,” so why can’t this switch live alone like it is. There is no other one that height, that color, with a yellow face plate in the room, or even the house. It has a new counter part on the other side of the room, just added, 48 inches high, all white and clean, soft and quiet. I know it can see it, it must be pissed. I have no idea why it was given the life it has, it was that way when we got here. What started as lazy, or avoidance, has become a preservation project. Save the switch, someone needs to stand up for the unique relic, I guess it is me… I am not making the switch.

I have mentioned this before, I am not a fan of moon photos. So, in 2016, my objective will be – still take them, but make them more interesting. Here is the first attempt for the New Year.

This is my talented friend, Mr. James Ligor, he needed some quick photos for a project he is working on. He was one of my many sessions today. Families, head-shots, this studio session and a band, great day for timricephoto.  Jim’s session was a blast, we talked for 5 minutes, we were on the same page instantly and I think we captured a look he was going for… and before I get the comments, yes ladies, Mr. Ligor is taken. Check out his music here and look for him fronting ZeroDrift sometime soon.

Last night I took part in a celebration of redneck ways, so I used my Polaroid 600 as the official camera of the event. There are no selfie sticks for my One-Step, good thing I got long arms and my stylish baby blue sleeveless tuxedo shirt.
