Memorial Day

I just saw a photo that reminded me of my visit to Boston 2 years ago over Memorial Day. The marathon bombing was still fresh on the city's mind at the time.

As an indication of how far I am behind on doing much with my photos, I just realized that nothing from that trip made it to the blog. Well below is photo and HERE is a link to a slideshow I'd put together of the trip shortly afterwards, but never got around to annotating.

Today Along the Canal

Elesa encouraged me to go a little further afield and work toward walking the entire canal in sections. So today she dropped me off at Lower Heyford and I made my way back to Thrupp. It was a very nice sunny day, but the path was a bit muddy and very slippery at times. Between mud and photos, the roughly 8 mile walk took me a good hour longer than I had expected.

Pin Hole

Picked up a couple of "body caps" that fit Canon EOS bodies for just a couple bucks last week. I've drilled a small hole in the center of one and started experimenting with it as a pinhole camera. I'm thinking my hole might be slightly too big, but I still have a lot of messing around to do :) Here are some photos I took with it on my walk today

In Black and White

A couple of shots from my roaming around the canal and Port Meadow the other day. The contrast led me to think of black and white.
