Jezza’s Film Follies (Part 1)

'What the hell are you?'

‘What the hell are you?’

As our newest editor stated here, I issued a challenge to him (and myself really) to do a film shoot out.  We both have Nikon film cameras that were collecting dust, and we were getting back into the whole film thing.

For a while we’ve shot film here and there since moving on to digital – both of us started photography when digital wasn’t even a thing yet.  (I just wanted to get that out of the way so this makes us non-hipsters LoL.) So during one of our Hangout sessions (Google Hangouts – since I’m in NYC and Alvin’s in GTA) (more…)

Red One

It’s been a while since I posted one of these. Have been in a creative slump photography wise. Anyway, just going to post a very clean Mark IV Volkswagen Jetta GLI. I think the owner calls it ‘Red Sauce’. It indeed is saucy. I forget what he did to the car, but it is very nicely done.

The Beast

Dubbed the ‘Wildebeest’ by it’s owner, this Mini forced induced monster is indeed a beast. It’s not only turbo charged, but supercharged as well. The matte green wrapped mini copper churns out upwards of 350+ BHP. A lot of custom work was done through out the car to accomadate the power, and is the epitomy of a ‘pocket rocket’

Pork, the other white meat.  It’s has to me at least a very transparent taste, and it absorbs flavour like no other.  This is pretty much über bacon, pork belly, so good, so tasty so deliciously bad for you.

This was one of our entrees this past thanksgiving, and it was oh-so-delicious.  Perfect compliment to the turkey.

Random Flickr photo of the day – September 23, 2011

A few first’s for this RFPD.  It’s the first entry that I shot this year, first that is also the most viewed from my Flickr Photostream, and the first flower shot with my new to me Nikkor 50mm f/1.4. (picked it up this past Friday).

This was shot at Cheesecake’s house, in their backyard.  Not that crazy about it, but I really was just playing around with my new to me lens.  I have shot with the fast fifty before, but, this one, I call my own, and it just feels different.  It’s one of my favorite lenses really, and I am so glad to have it finally in my bag.  Hopefully I can get to shoot more with it soon.

I might do some more post-editing on this one.  I’ll make sure to post it up when I do.
