After much thought and reflection, I decided to name this one… “Bear”.
Another gem found in my father’s camera drawer. My best guess is this lens was used with the Kodak 8mm movie camera.
A cylinder. On a mirror. With a green background.
From a large cylindrical container of some sort.
One of those AA-size flashlights attached to a keychain. This is the first photo I’ve taken using extension tubes for macro photography.
Increasingly on our minds as fuel prices skyrocket again. On a side note, though, here’s a gem for you! Next time you’re car shopping but don’t want the salesperson to shadow your every move, walk in with a camera and ask if it’s OK to take photos on their lot. They told me “no problem” …
Do you remember flashcubes from the seventies and eighties? Four individual flashbulbs, arranged four to a cube. They seemed to look more interesting from the bottom, so here you go. :-)
The title says it all.
The handle to my dresser drawer.
Today, I celebrate reaching the halfway point for my photo-a-day project. I’ve taken at least one new photo every day for six months, which feels strangely satisfying. I am sure it will be smooth sailing from here, right?!?? And no, I don’t care to debate whether 365 divided by two is 180. :-)
At the Very Large Array near Magdalena, New Mexico.
Working for the weekend.
Kodak’s 8mm windup movie camera from the 1950’s.
The flash unit for the vintage camera shown yesterday.
My father purchased this camera in 1954 at the Army PX at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
My assumption is these were purchased in the mid-seventies.
My father had this sitting in his dresser drawer. An unopened package of film that expired in 1977. I had to look up “126” on wikipedia to learn about the format. He no longer has the camera that used this, as far as we know. He did, however, have many other gems in that drawer …
The “dancing rabbit” sculpture at Albuquerque Uptown. At least, I *think* that’s supposed to be a rabbit.
Feeling pressed for time and ideas, I am officially in a rut for this project. At least for the time being. Hopefully the weekend will bring motivation.
The CDs aren’t getting much use these days.
Electronic recording device.
I have several friends that are serious fans of the Star Trek series. This particular ceramic sculpture, though, would creep me out if it were in my house.
Ah, yes, the joy of filing taxes. :-)
To hell with the diet… calories don’t count on Superbowl Sunday!
In front of the Unser Racing Museum in Albuquerque, NM.
Well, OK, perhaps the word “shopping” isn’t entirely accurate.
Light trails in front of an adobe church.
