Before Saturday, I have not shot anything in a very long time. I felt like a crack whore going though withdrawal. Like I have said before, shooting is very important to me. It brings balance to my life. I wish that I had a good excuse for not shooting anything but I do not. I have had been plenty of good opportunities to shoot, but I have had a lot more bad excuses for not shooting.
Because of this, Saturday when I went to Digital Silver Imaging to see a gallery opening of Ron Rosenstock black and white infrared landscape images, I made it a point to leave my house early just to fit in some time to take pictures. The first stop that I made was in Medford. (I was driving through I saw some railroad tracks and just had to stop.)
I then continued on to DSI and I arrived about 30 minutes early for the gallery opening. I walked down the street a little and took some more amazing images of train tracks. (This was part of my plan from the start)
I finished up just as the gallery doors opened. I would have to say that the gallery show was fantastic. Ron Rosenstock is an amazing photographer. Out of all the images that he had on display, I would have to say that this was my favorite image of the show.
Ron took this image of Prayer Flags in Bhutan in 2009 at high noon. (Something that you could never do with a regular camera) I am thinking about getting my old Nikon D200 converted to infrared. I am planning a trip to Canada in a couple of weeks and I am thinking that this might be another way to capture the beauty of Canada.
Overall the day was very fulfilling. It was a good outlet for my pented up frustrations. The only thing better is seeing my daughter's smile.
Here are my favorite images that I took
Thanks for visiting and happy shooting!
