Alvin’s Film and Digital Follies – Taking in Chicago!

As you may have learned, last month I managed to sneak a road trip over to Chicago with my girlfriend.  It was a first time for us to visit this city.  During this excursion, my girlfriend had scheduled us in for three walking tours for the two days that we were in town.

Alvin’s Film Follies (Part IX – Penny Tries Velvia and A Digital Fisheye?)

Over the past couple of weeks, I was camping and was also waiting for my first roll of slide film (Fujifilm Velvia 50) to come back from the folks at DC. Due to my ignorance, I didn’t know that it would take two weeks for the film to get processed.  “Oh well,” I said to myself,  “What to do in the meantime?”

Random photo of the day – November 27, 2012 – Flickr Edition

It’s been a while since I posted a random photo.  Just been behind on a few things.  In any case, here is an oldy.  It snowed a bit today, and reminded me of some older snow scenes that I’ve taken. And looking through my older shots, I saw this one.

Shot with my old Pentax K10D and Pentax’s DA 10-17mm Fisheye.

Shooting snowy scenes always gives me this calming effect, the quietness, the serenity of everything after a fresh snow fall gives you this peace from with in.  At least with me.  I hope you enjoyed.
