Photo project!

Posted in The View From the 500th Floor on October 3, 2014 by deifiedplum

Instead of posting anything here today, I have decided to talk briefly about my idea of weekly photo projects for the site. I will focus on one subject and snap away, hopefully getting some good shots in the process. Good or bad, each and every photograph will be posted, unedited, right here. My first project: GARBAGE. If anyone has any ideas for this, let me know!

Cedar Point needs to start paying me.

This post could also be titled, “I spend too much time at Cedar Point”

Portraits!

Posted in The View From the 500th Floor on September 19, 2014 by deifiedplum

I’ve never felt very comfortable doing portraits of people. I am a very soft spoken individual, and I don’t like giving orders to people. I’d rather take pictures of scenery, and people that don’t know I’m photographing them. Here are a few photos that people actually allowed me to take of them, which was nice.

Also, I am still working on getting all of my photos in one place. I have a few thousand right now, which are currently on two computers, a phone, and three flash drives. Getting them organized is taking quite a bit of time. Once I have them all where I want them to be, I think posting photos here will become a tiny little bit easier.

The Un-Disney side of Disney

Posted in The View From the 500th Floor on September 12, 2014 by deifiedplum

 

A few years ago, I took my daughter to Disney for the first time. We had as good a time as we could, considering my panicky type A personality and her desire to smell every single flower on the walk to wherever. But I did manage to get a few really nice pictures that had nothing to do with the characters and the rides and the shows. I have a lot more of this kind of thing that I took on my film camera, and I do hope to get those photos converted to digital in the near future so that I can finally start looking at them again.IMG_5232 IMG_5236 IMG_5342 IMG_5471 IMG_5562 IMG_5566

Cedar Point from the last couple of years.

I absolutely love taking photos at Cedar Point. Something about the sizes of the rides, the lighting, the interesting angles. I don’t know. But every single time I go, I take a ton of pictures there. Here are a couple:

My daily photo posts are kaput.

However, the photos themselves won’t be stopping. At some point soon, I hope to post some digital-ized photos from my old black and white analog camera days. But the transfer of the photos costs money that I currently don’t really have, so it’s something that will need to wait for a bit. For now, I am trying to come up with an idea for a photo series. I’d like to start working on one series at a time, more like a homework assignment than anything else. My current list is nonexistent, because I haven’t had the wherewithal to start considering the ideas yet.

Two at a time…again.

I seriously do not know what is happening with my camera. Sending photos used to be a breeze. Now, I have to send it four or five times and wait for hours or a full day to get them on here. I guess this is my punishment for not having a real camera.
