Two views of a stranger. Every time I go on a #photowalk and want to make pictures of unknowns-to-me, I rethink the ethics of it. Sometimes I approach the person before, sometimes after. In this case, not at all. He noticed me and his agreement seemed tacit. We can talk about #streetphotography and shooting people tomorrow at the field trip at @unionmemberhouse.

I found a small stack of negatives in the family collection so I scanned them. First is my father Thomas and his older sister Frances. This is from circa 1937 in Beaver Falls, Penna., where they spent all their childhoods. The second frame I cropped to enlarge how cute they were. For you shooters, these were separately cut 2.25 x 3.25 (or 6 x 9). Would love to know which camera was used.

Here's a simple low angle with converging lines on my Pentax ME Super and 50mm f1.7. I wasn't aware of a lens hood's purpose, so the sun overpowered the famous Super Multi Coating, and an unsightly flare spot intrudes on the #twintowers. . #september11 #wtc #neverforget #streetphotography #architecture #summerof88 #manhattan #nyc #kodachrome #pentaxlife #pentaxian #scanyourownfilm #35mmfilm

Deep wine-colored leaves make purple fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceumΒ β€˜Rubrum’) a stand-out in any planting. It blends beautifully with pink, white or lavender leaves and flowers. Buff-colored, bottlebrush seed heads appear in late summer and linger through winter. Leaves and seedheads turn a lovely straw color after frost arrives. Purple fountain grass is widely used as an annual and looks fantastic in containers or planting beds. --from DIY Network . . @diynetwork #raleigh #northcarolina #dixpark #filmphotography #backlit #naturephotography #shootmanual #pentax #pentaxlx #smcpentax #50mm14 #fujifilm #superia400 #filmgrain #scanyourownfilm #photoshopexpress
