The First Roll From Linwood’s Camera

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

I finally got the first roll of file shot on Linwood’s Nikon. Most of you have already read or heard the story of how I came by this treasure, but  I am remembering why it takes much more talent to shoot film than digital, something Linwood had in abundance. At any rate, there were a few that weren’t horrible.

Looking Up At Cactus Flowers

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

I was reading an article from my favorite photographer, David duChemin, that talked about trying some different angles with things you photograph a lot.  Every year I photograph the blooming cactus on the ranch, so I decided to try shooting them from underneath.  I was quite surprised and pleased with the results.

Wandered in and around the cactus patch today (yes, in shorts and flip flops) and took some shots.

Cactus Day

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

I went out today and took some shots of the cactus around the ranch.  We have such a bad drought going on that none of them look terribly healthy, but some (see last picture) look better than others.  The first picture is a macro shot of a spent cactus bud.  It used to have a flower, which you can see numerous shots I took on here or here. The buds are kinda cool too, though.

As always, if you want to see more pictures or these in a larger (much larger) size, just click on the picture to go to my fickr page.  Enjoy.
