I've been wondering lately, what kind of photographer am I? People tend to like big colorful landscapes. And I enjoy them too. However, I also like the incredible diversity of shapes and textures and places in the world. I guess I'm a photographer of things I like. I don't post a lot of abandoned photographs (urbex) simply because I don't have occasion (often) to see places like this. This is the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. It's quite an amazing place. An abandoned prison oozing with character (and spookiness!). This was a room used for haircuts. Tamron 15-30, Nikon d750, tripod with a longish exposure. Crazy dynamic range so I had to shoot a long exposure and pull back some of the highlights. Dynamic range on the d750 is incredible so I can pull 3-4 stops out of the shadows without noise. Anyhow, I'll probably be posting a few of these spooky shots for a week or so.
I'm sooo happy today.....no work....back home...it's not raining! it's all good. I'm even sort of looking forward to Christmas (no doubt this feeling will have disappeared in a few days time...lol). Treated the girls this morning and we headed into town for a cooked breakfast followed by haircuts all round! Chloe went for a complete change of style and looks gorgeous...Robyn just had a trim but looks cool (keeps swinging her hair around like a loreal advert) and I just had a trim myself...as u can see it looks a mess. I like it this way though! I was cursed with the curly hair gene at birth.

Blown out highlights, I know. I can't really blame it on my farmer's tan.

About every month or so, I get a haircut. I do not get styled, I get an all-american ten-dollar ten-minute buzz-trimmed straight-razor finished haircut. I have been going to the same barber for about ten years. I do not have to tell what I want. I do not change styles. I have never asked for a "george clooney" or a "brad pitt" cut. I sit down, and the barber sprays my head with a mist bottle and then starts cutting. I have, and need, no input.
I rave for the local barbershop and the venue it provides for the men who come with their sons and/or fathers and who sit around and talk football or economics or local happenings, mindlessly, simply taking a few minutes out of their day, away from all the pell-mell of errands or projects and chores. I rave for the barbers who do not know your name (and you don't know theirs) and but they do remember how you like your hair and how your son likes his hair.
I rave for the moment of peace -- I actually have fallen asleep -- that comes with the monthly cut at the local barber. I have never gone to a hair stylist. My health care proxy says nothing of end-of-life decisions. I care not if the plug is pulled or heroic measures taken. But it does specify that, should I be in some vegatative state, I be carted to and hair cared for by my local barber.
*small note. This shot would have been better, I know, if there had been an old man cutting my hair. But, one of the requirements of going to a barber is that you take the open chair. You are not to have favorites -- that would count as getting styled. Today, the open chair was Yelena's. Male or Female, a barber is a barber and is not a stylist.
Young boy having a street haircut, much to the amusement of his friend. Not sure if he's unhappy at getting a haircut or me taking a picture. Bacolod City, Philippines.
It was haircut day and it was way overdue. I like this shot because he was pretending to be angry for the camera, but you can just see a little bit of the playful smile he was trying to hide from me.
While the shot is not bad, I really wish i had more of the mirror's frame in the picture so you could really tell he's looking at his reflection. I was just not getting the cooperation today for good shot and this was as good as i would get today...

Looking lovely as ever, I think you'll agree.
