Reclining Woman

Taken sometime in the late 1970s to early 1980s. I don’t remember which camera I was using. Nor do I remember what film I used other than that it was some kind of slide film.

And yes, I know that the white balance is way off. I’d seem some pictures in a book which used a daylight balanced film with tungsten lights and I quite liked the effect so I thought I’d try to emulate it. I also recall that I used some kind of technique (possibly a sheer stocking over the lens) to get the soft focus look.

Woman on a Computer

Taken during a cruise on the River Hudson almost one year ago (December 2016). See also:

While everyone was drinking, dancing, listening to the music etc. she was sitting alone in a dark corner working on the computer. It’s rather blurry, but I like the intent expression on her face and the way it’s almost completely illuminated by the computer screen.

Taken with a Sony A500 and Tamron A18 AF 18-250mm f3.5-6.3.

Peekskill Blues

A while back we went with some friends to a kind of street festival in Peekskill, NY. North Division Street, with a number of restaurants had been closed to traffic. We went to one of these eateries: the 12 Grapes. Restaurant for a meal, making sure that we got a table outside so that while eating we could listen to the blues band that was performing on the street: Joshua2 Street Band. They were pretty good – in my opinion much better than the band, which performed in our restaurant later on. The man at the keyboard is married to one of my wife’s friends.

Taken with a Sony RX100 M3.
