Random Photos – NYC

Sorry I missed putting up random photos last night.  Our new couch gets to be very comfortable, especially after long days.  Anyway, I give you 3 shots, again from 2009, maybe 2010, but most likely 2009.  These were shot with my then brand new Nikon D700 with a 24mm F/2.8 Nikkor D lens.

Funny, when I say ‘then brand new Nikon D700’.  I can’t believe it’s been 9 years since I adopted into the Nikon system.  That’s another story for another post.  For now, please enjoy these shots.

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.

Never Forgotten

14 Years ago we faced one of the biggest atrocities this country has ever experienced. I will never forget what I saw that day, the feelings I had, the emotions…

As I sit here on my desk, staring at the Freedom Towers, I can’t even imagine if was sitting here 14 years ago, and seeing that from my desk. I did see Tower 2 fall in a roof top parking lot, and I still can’t believe it to this day that it happened.

From all of us here at JustWroteABlog, a moment of silence to the heroes and the victims of that day.

Jezza’s Film Follies – (‘Tri’-ing to be ‘Art’sy)

Con-Ed, a NY utility company. That's all I chose to say really

Con-Ed, an NY utility company. That’s all I choose to say, really.

As I mentioned in my last follies post, the Fujifilm Pro-400H was my 2nd to last expired film (read post here).  Well, this is the last of my expired film: Kodak’s 400 Tri-X professional black and white film.  This is also probably the least aged of my old film, only having expired around late 2013.  This film also gave me a (more…)

Colours are nice and vibrant

I have to seriously use the film that I get within its sell by date. Having said that, this is the 2nd to last roll of film I have had sitting around for over a year.  That film in question is Fujifilm’s Pro 400h color negative film.  This didn’t have that colour shift that I got from my previous old roll of film (Kodak Chrome 100) which the post can be read here.  But then again, that roll was, I would guess, about 10 years old.

Weekend With Canon (A 3-Part Mini-Series) – Part “the deuce”: The images

_N2A0347

5th Ave. looking north. Shot at F8 or something I think.

I have mentioned in the first part of this 3-part mini series that this was the first time I am using a Canon DSLR at length. So, I am really in unfamiliar territory with this in terms of how the auto focus system behaves, and how the metering system is like, etc., etc. Handling, ergonomics, and menu digging aside, I did feel somewhat at home with the taking picture part of this system.  Much like with any modern day DSLR, (more…)

Jezza’s Film Follies (Kodak Ektar Edition)

Flower

A flower starting to whittle away.

Shooting black and white is fun and all, but, I do have a soft spot for colours. I mean, we do see colour everyday.  So, after polishing off the Ilford PanF, I popped in a roll of Kodak’s Ektar 100.  Well actually, I had dropped off the Ilford for developing at CRC at the start of my lunch hour, and that left me with an unloaded camera.  So I stopped by Fotocare, and picked up Kodak’s Ektar 100.
