Quite often, I'll take two pictures of a scene: one using a film camera and another using the Digital Rebel just in case something happened to get screwed up. I usually end up posting the one taken with the Rebel just because I'm too impatient to wait for the film to come back or because I really need something new to post that day. Naturally, I never bother posting the film versions since I figure they'd only be redundent. But whatever.. here are four variations of previous posts that I need to get out of my system. With the exception of the one with the stack, I think I prefer these to the ones I posted originally. Click for larger views.
And here are a few photography-related sites that I've been enjoying recently:
myke6699.blogspot.com - A lot of photobloggers out there do that deliberately mundane William Eggleston/Steven Shore inspired kind of stuff. Some pull it, some don't. Here's someone who I think does.
Dark Shapes Prowl - I'm not usually one for posed portrait photography, but this stuff is consistently excellent. All done using a Digital Rebel XT and a couple of not-so-expensive lenses, too. Just goes to show that you don't need top of the line equipment to be able to come out with incredible, professional looking work. *looks at recently purchased Zeiss lens* Yep, it's enough to make me want to weep.
Michael Veit - Beautiful large format work involving the abandoned grain elevators in and around Buffalo, NY.
City of Dust - A great combination of brilliant writing, urban exploration and the further examination of one's own local history.
Sprol : The Worst Places in the World - "Sprol shows the visual macroscopic effects of the decisions and behavior of our society." An interesting blog that puts Google maps and various other satelite imagery to good use for a change.
