Found him in a different spot today. He was standing about 50 yards away from me, and then was kind enough to take off and land on the deck about 20 yards further down. I was thrilled! ;)
although I feel that I still have a lot to learn when it comes to the Hipstamatic Multiple Exposure Kit...
I am constantly amazed at some of the images it creates. this image is 100% pure Hipsta and just wows me at how delicate the layers are... like an intricate and fiercely complicated mechanical drawing.

One of this set of very old china cups got broken a long while back. I kept it for just such an occasion and then forgot about it. I struggled to find a suitable subject until I remembered, so I hope broken into 4 pieces counts as "worn".
Macro image of tines and their shadows of a Mbira or African Thumb Piano. This old instrument has a hand carved sound box with curved tines threaded under a binding at one end. Tines are tuned to different pitches and played by plucking with the thumbs.

And to finish it up, the HDR pano extravaganza. What used to take an hour to tonemap stitch and process on the old computer is kid stuff now. So bring on the panos! (though I may send them to Don or Victor for content aware fill...)
My mini vacation starts NOW, so I'll leave you with this for a few days. I hope to return with a few good shots and a few more laugh lines. Who cares about wrinkles when you get them from laughing maniacally at your own good fortune?
Week 46 of 52 of 2014. The theme is TILT SHIFT EFFECT. The fall colors are peaking in Gainesville, GA this weekend, but with the unusual cold we're having, they won't last very long. See the entire 52 of 2014 set at www.flickr.com/photos/thesussman/sets/72157639288997073/
Yesterday, he flew right towards me, landed about 15 feet away, ate his lunch, stared at me for a while and then flew away. He's getting braver. More pics below.
Dead, dried-up palm frond, waiting to drop to the ground. This palm tree is self-pruning, which is a real advantage over ones that need the owner to prune them. The squirrels appreciate the seeds that fall as well.

This week's upload is a day early however I couldn't help myself because when I woke up this morning, the perfect opportunity had risen for this week's photo.
As much as I dislike the winter months, they make great photo opportunities. It was a cold, misty morning and my work location could not be more ideal. It was beautifully sunny and I walked up and down the fields taking photos of the mist sitting long along the ground. Then, the moment I wasn't expecting arrive and a flock of black birds took flight, creating a photograph that I had never expected to capture.
For a while I have hoped to capture a misty landscape for project 52, except they only come at certain times of the year, and with only 6 weeks left to go now, I was starting to worry I was going to lose my chance.
All in all, I'm impressed with this shot this week, and I hope you all enjoy it.

Making connections with shapes is somewhat a hobby of mine. In this case I noticed the similarity in shape of mushrooms and water towers. The water tower is for the city of Makanda Illinois. The mushrooms came from the Cape nature center. The background is in Perry County, close to Apple Creek.
This is another shot from this week's project 52. There were varying heights around Sywell Reservoir that allowed by me take different shots. Lower ground enabled me to capture objects that were partially shrouded by fog, helping me capture this shot.
At the time, there was a flock of birds flying around, which I followed over to these tree's, in turn which helped me create this eerie capture.
I did feel like black and white suited this shot quite well, but it's interesting to see how it make the whole area look foggy, when actually the sky was quite bright at the time.

November 14th 2010
Craig and I decided to get out of Auckland for the weekend...
And ended up in Whangarei...
About a 2.5 hour drive North of Auckland.
On Saturday night we spotted this sign...
For a 3 hour harbour cruise to Matakohe - Historic Limestone Island
Leaving at 11am Sunday morning...
A perfect way to spend Sunday we thought!
Relaxing on a boat in the harbour...
The Island is very small, but was incredibly interesting...
We only had @ 45mins to have a quick explore of the ruins etc...
We ended up being the ONLY ONES on the cruise...
So we didn't want to hold the owner and his skipper up.
We felt a bit guilty that they didn't have anyone else...
But they were still more than happy to go...
And were incredibly friendly and hospitable!
So all in all we had a really wonderful day!
Will have to go back again sometime! %-)
There was a sculpture framed by the window at the Art Gallery, and a statistically perfect family of four strategically doing an inspection. I didn't even have to pay them.

The "real" illusion was making all of the post-it notes disappear off of the monitor before the photo was taken!
"Salute to a fallen comrade." Memorial Day 2008. Willamette National Cemetery. (Vivitar Series 1 200mm f/3.5AF - Kodak Portra 800, @ 640).
Fast forward exactly one year after making this snap. I've found the soldier in it. By chance, I ran into one of his military buddies, volunteering at the National Cemetery on Memorial Day 2009. He immediately recognized the soldier, and gave me his name and phone #. I'll be giving him a metallic print of this scene. The Willamette National Cemetery now has a large one for their permanent display too.
The Soldiers response upon receiving the picture:
Thank you very much for the picture.
That day at the cemetery was the first time since arriving home in March
2005, that I had come to see my friend. I had made other attempts to go see
David's plot, I had even been to the cemetery previously to bury some
comrades ... But this was the first time that I had enough courage to go and
see my friend. His name was Staff Sergeant David Weisenburg, he was killed
in Taji, Iraq during the summer of 2004. We had been in the Oregon Guard
together for about 5 years. He was a good friend.
I'm attaching a speech that I gave last year at a memorial dedication for
David and one other Soldier, that briefly talks about David. Perhaps it will
give you a little insight as to what kind of man my friend was.
Thank you again for taking the time to look me up and send me this picture,
this means a great deal to me.

Water & Light (46/52) this is not the theme for week 46 but I just had so much fun with this today :-) I am using it for this weeks image :-)
Just noticed that it is quite a bit darker than it was before I uploaded it - not sure why this is - does anyone know why this has happened?
This sculpture doesn't look like much in the daytime, but the colored light inside makes it really pop at night.

Cleaning out files tonight, and came across this red daisy. Haven't shot the last couple of days because of crummy weather. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.

i'm working a lot.
i'm headed for burning out.
i don't know if i want to continue with photography. i've been feeling like this for a really long time and it honestly kills me. i need to find a way to make my photos mean something to me again... to make photography fun again.
my bedroom window has these water lines running down it every morning. it's so beautiful. i want to capture beautiful things, quiet things, things that not everyone notices. i feel like since coming home from SCAD, all i've been doing is sitting around. i haven't done anything interesting photographically in a very long time and i want to change that but i don't know how.
i'm stuck. i don't know what to do anymore.
