Doughnuts and More Found Film

Nothing gets my sweet tooth more excited than driving past a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop and seeing the “Hot and Fresh” sign flashing in the window.

During the day, Krispy Kreme looks like just another place with a fun sign.

But once night falls, its evil glow can topple even the strongest effort at resistance. The glow of the sign gets into your head and you can’t get it out. Every time I pass the place at night, I say to myself “The glow gets into your soul.” Hah! Luckily it isn’t getting into my belly.

Here are a few more of the “found film” shots. I love these!

Atlanta skyline with just a wee ( read as “a lot”) bit of lens distortion. I need to take some better gear down to that overpass and try this shot again.

Here’s my friend Dan, who was with me the day I shot the roll of film. I think he was over the whole thing. 🙂 Nine years of waiting to be processed did soften these shots, as can especially be seen in the photo of Dan. The cast has also gone very green. I chose to leave these photos as they are instead of doing any color correction on them.

Apologies for the short post today, but my day is starting earlier than usual. Have a great day and take a picture of something!

Taking Care of the Lawn

Visiting my dad at my sister’s place was a bit of an experience. I hadn’t been close to a horse since I was five or six years old.  Now there’s a whole “herd” of them living on the property she shares with her cousin. It was very strange being awakened by the sound of up to seven  horses galloping across the property in the morning. I’m not that much of a city boy, but it was something brand new to me. The morning after I arrived at my sister’s place, I decided to go see how cooperative these horses would be to me taking some photos.. the answer was “not very cooperative” unless I was a fair distance away. Oh, well. Still managed to get some good shots of them in spite of their diva personalities.

 

 

 

 

The hilarious thing about these photos is that they’re being taken in the “front yard.” That shows how rural this place is. One thing for sure, you might be star struck when you first see these beauties.. but you’d still better watch your step.
