Chester Bennington Tributes

I’m still quite shocked that Linkin Park’s front man Chester Bennington is no longer with us.  His voice, and lyrics really got me into music fully, and pretty much molded my music listening preferences as it is today.  I still get a bit emotional when I hear their songs now.

I came across 2 tributes to Chester by Coldplays  Chris Martin and 30 Seconds to Mars’ Jared Leto.  Very hear felt to say the least.

Random Photos – Mid-Town, NY

In keeping with yesterday’s theme, and I guess moving forward with the rest of this weeks random photos, I give you more shots from 2009.  This was during a rainy trek to NYC’s Times Square, and the immediate area.

I don’t really remember much from that day, other than it was rainy and I felt drained just being in that area. These were shot with a Pentax K20D and an SMC Pentax M50 F/1.7 manual lens. Also, apologies for the sizes, I processed these also back in 2009, and back then, I was in the habit of sharing lower res. photos.

Random Photos – Stirling, NJ

I forgot to grab a camera with me when I left this morning for work.  Sure, I do have my cell phone, but the whole point of this project was to ‘get my gear out’ as Matt Granger would say.  So I dug back to some old photos I had shot before.

This set I did back in 2009, when my mom and I visited St. Josephs shrine in Stirling, NJ.

My editing style as well as my shooting style was pretty different back then.  I shot these with a Pentax K20D, with probably the Pentax 50-135 F/2.8 DA* lens and maybe a Sigma 28mm F/1.7 EX DG.  And as always, edited in Lightroom to taste.  I’m not sure I would edit these the same way.  I think I should actually look for the RAW files from my archives and see how I would edit them now.  Anyhow, I hope you enjoy.

Random Photos – Warrington, PA

My wife, my son and I took advantage of the beautiful early afternoon by taking a stroll at Lower Nike park in Warrington, PA.  It was a good 3 or so mile loop, and it gave us a good light work out.  We also happen to spot a coyote, but I was unable to grab a shot though.

Enjoy some sad attempt at bird photos.  These were shot with the Pentax K3, with a Pentax 100mm F/2.8 Macro WR, and Fujifilm X100S.

Random Photos – Doylestown, PA 3

I’m going to be honest, there’s probably going to be an abundant amount of random photos from Doylestown.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing though.

Shot with Fujifilm X100S, processed to taste in Lightroom.

(Note: I hope the bird survived.  We almost stepped on him.  Not sure if he’s able to move anymore at all.)

Random Photos – Flemington/Ringoes, NJ

I am in a creative rut whenever I am in NYC for some reason.  Maybe it’s because i’m on my way to work, or I am at work, and my mental capacity just wont let me input anything else other than what I have to do for the day.  My shots today are from my drive going to work, and on the drive home, while getting gas.

All shots were done with the Fujifilm X100S, processed in Lightroom to taste.

I did a walk around on another part of my town, so some different looks. Not as much this time around though. I used my Fuji X100S again, but I also brought my Pentax K3 with a 100mm F/2.8 Macro WR mounted along for the walk. Enjoy!
