Oh my, can you believe Thursday is here already? Just yesterday I was enjoying my weekend and Moments with… Red and These Moments Monday and here comes Thursday again sneaking in. Oh well… almost Saturday again!

I tried forever to get a wide shot of the boys at the Zoo aquarium the other day, but it was packed, it was hot and the Zoo was infested by a bunch of idiots, so this is what I wound up with. At least you can’t see the lady next to them with a braided mullet, wearing a dirty tank top doing meth with her twenty five kids.

HSS!

I shot these interchangeably with the Nikon FE and the Pentax. I used both 50mm and 28mm lenses. I also used both Tri-X 400 and TMax 3200 film. Perhaps I’ll revisit these and sort out specific details for each shot…

Thirteen photographs in one day. I wanted to both upload this series serially and in its entirety. In the end, I think it works best taken in all at once.

Two weeks ago I accompanied Dexter and Ashley one evening when they went off to dance. As they were warming up I saw an opportunity to take some very nice photographs (in my opinion) so I ran across campus and grabbed my cameras to shoot these. As far as I know, Dexter and Ashley coreographed this “for fun,” but it looked great and was exciting to simultaneously shoot the dance and watch it improve with each runthrough.

At first I said, “No,” they could not go swimming in our neighbor’s pool (we have kind neighbors) because it was pushing 8:00 pm and they had to get up early for school in the morning. There were teeth to brush, rooms to tidy, blah, blah, blah. But then, as a united team, they presented their case quite expertly using persuasive arguments such as: “It’s such good exercise,” “Here’s a way to play something all together,” and “I got a high grade on my oral report about Sir Walter Raleigh.”

I totally caved. They had a super fun time. It was worth it.
