Final Frames of 2008
Hard to believe we’re shutting the door on 2008 already. Where did it go? I took some time today to do some “quiet photos”, ones I called Winterscapes.
I really like all of the symetrical lines in this one.
This one had more veritical lines.
It was a heck of a year for me in the world of photography. January kicked off with NJ My Way.com doing a nice piece on my an my “Photo a Day” project that I did in 2007.
Because of that piece, I was asked to contribute noir photography to the off-Broadway play of Two Detectives.
Keeping on the stage, I had a great experience shooting the local production of “The Full Monty” that included in the cast a friend of mine, Brian Meltzer. (he’s the bald guy below and this shot below ran in The Trentionian newspaper with a review of the play)
Along the way, I met some interesting people while working on my 100 Strangers project, like Jesse (below) from Orlando, Florida.
And Lupe, in West Hollywood.
And a new friend in Cork County, Ireland, Derek.
It was quite a year. Met a lot of great people both in person and virtually. Learned alot about photography. And was inspired by pros like Joe McNally, Moose Peterson and John Madere, but more so by alot of my friends over at Flickr and shooters like Jeff, and Tom.
I’m looking forward to 2009. My little girl turns 2, my wife and I celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary (the gal has put up with me for nine years though) and I expect to learn a lot and…and to keep pushing the pixels, as McNally would say.
Happy New Year, Readers!
