April’s been bugging me…

… and it needs to go now. But we have a consolation prize, in the form of a ladies’ Speidel watchband and a lovely month-end abstract to go along with it:

I’d like to say this was intentional and it wouldn’t have been hard to accomplish, but this is simply evidence that I accidentally hit the shutter release as I was finished taking a few frames of pre-sunrise read more

Tripod holes 53

N 36° 3’59.06″ W 75°41’23.29″ Google Earth location

Another where it doesn’t matter a whole lot where you are, but it represents something that I thought I’d accomplish more often in the intervening years. Bear with me for a second.

When I determined that I’d have 53 Tripod Holes posts this year and that the last would fall on December 31st, I slotted this read more

Less than a week

All of these photos were taken a week ago, except not quite – it was Saturday morning, but around sunrise, and this is posting well before sunrise. Just to take that accusatory tone away from you.

I won’t say it was a great outing, given that the sunrise didn’t perform worth a doodle and the bird activity was kind of sparse, but we (meaning the Incalculable Mr Bugg and I) still read more

Tripod holes, part 7

N 41.964321° W 75.737583° Google Earth Placemark

This comes from June 2021, on a trip back to where I grew up in central New York. This isn’t New York, though, it’s Pennsylvania, barely – it’s the Susquehanna River just a few klicks south of the NY border. And it’s a little anachronistic, or at least against the grain given the appearance, because it was taken right read more

More cheating this week: You will no longer find this boat if you go to this location, at least not according to Google Earth/Google Maps, though where it’s gone I can’t say. Repaired? Dismantled? Driven off by a storm? Looming out of the fog just when our heroes were relaxing? Your guess is probably better, or at least read more

Too brief, but still fun

The Girlfriend and I recently did a two-day trip out to the beach, in this case Carolina Beach and Fort Fisher – couldn’t call it a vacation really, but it’s what we have for now. There was a particular purpose, and timing, to this one, since the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher houses four Asian small-clawed read more

Visibly different, part 28

This is from 1995, though I’m not sure which month – I have nothing, no events or even photographic references, that I can connect to dependably, yet I’m going to say spring just for the hell of it. I was on my first unaccompanied tour of Florida, at this point on a beach on Captiva Island, and recognized the framing opportunity that I had with the great egret read more

Isolation, like Jupiter and Mars

That’s a line from ‘Catch A Star,’ an obscure track from Business As Usual, the first album by Men At Work, and it popped into my head as I was hiking down to my shooting locale this morning because I was heavily influenced by that album when it was released – we read more

The return of Monday monochrome

I’ve been slowly building a small collection of experimental monochrome images and figured they might as well show up today, because who wouldn’t appreciate more grey on a Monday? Plus, it’s been a while since the last one, though less so if you count the crossovers

Anyway, here’s what I’ve come up with. Promise you won’t laugh.

I don’t read more

Visibly different, part 2

For our next entry in this topic, we have an image shot on negative film at an unknown date and location, that can at least be narrowed down to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, somewhere between 1994 and 1997, which would also make it shot most likely on an Olympus OM-10 – beyond that, I have no recollection nor notes. Obviously, I’d selected an abandoned stretch of read more
