I have shot this old barn before, but never from this side. I usually shoot from the other side, mainly because I am too lazy to walk to this side. It is old, run down, and decrepit. Somehow it must know this, as it calls itself “Antique!!”
Actually it is an old barn that used to sell antiques and is now just a historical monument here in town. It used to sit on the corner of the road. However Wal-Greens wanted to add a store on that corner. The town fought hard and refused to let the barn be torn down. So it was moved and now stands tall in front of the Wal-Greens.
The stormy clouds rolling in give this shot an scary feel. Looks like something that would be shot around Halloween!
As many of you know, last month I went to the Bon Jovi concert at the New Meadowlands Stadium. You can read the post about that show HERE. I came away with some great images from that show. In fact, I liked some of the images so much that I put together a 20×30 poster that I had made for our house. The text on the left and right is the set list from the show, 26 songs! The text on the bottom is the name and performance info.
I placed the order for the print through MPIX. I have used them for smaller prints before, but this was the first time I had used them for a large print. When I received it the other day, I was blown away. Even I said WOW. The print looked so good that I almost forgot that I created it!
The print is amazing. It’s going to find a home on the wall in my office. I’m sure it will be along time before something replaces it.
This past weekend I attended my cousin’s wedding. The wedding was wonderful and lent itself to the opportunity to capture some wonderful images. However, there was one big problem…
You see, a little while back my cousin asked if I could take some pictures during her wedding. Nothing special or outrageous, but just a few mementos from a professional would be nice. I was excited to do so. However, upon arrival at the wedding I realized that I had left my DSLR at the hotel (30mins from the ceremony). There was no going back for it. What was I to do? I had just committed one of the cardinal sins of photography.
After calming down, I remembered those famous words said throughout the photography community, “The best camera is the one that’s with you.” So I pulled out my new HTC Incredible and captured images with that.
There was no learning curve for me. I had to get acclimated with the interface fast! I was surprised by the amount of settings that could be adjusted on this device. You could change the ISO, METERING, and WHITE BALANCE. This was pretty impressive stuff. I made the adjustment quickly and was able to capture some nice moments for my cousin.
