Photo and Film A Day

Two friends, one blog, a year-long photographic adventure
Walking to work this morning I saw things in a light that I rarely see. I usually drive and only pay attention to the road, but today I lucked out with good light. I framed this shot and fired, I was in a bit of a rush so I’m not totally happy with it. Here is the main entrance of the Constab HQ, formerly Memorial College.

Kieran and I were spinnin’ yarns on FaceTime tonight. Melissa got in on the action and told some funny stories.

Our friendly neighbourhood Garden Spider makes another appearance in the blog. I wanted to capture more of the web. Having only one shot to capture a photo it really makes you sit down and focus on what you want. I am really enjoying the week thus far, having the limitations of one shot makes you take time and enjoy the process. 
If I had my time back I would have went for a lower angle I think, but overall I am very pleased with this again.

This week, Matt and I are taking just one photo per day, meaning we have one chance to get it right. I took this prematurely. I thought it was decent, but then turned around five minutes later to beautiful rays of light shooting through the trees next to the dog park. Oh well, a little more patience tomorrow.

It is Monday, meaning new theme day! Today, Dan and I are going a really different route, the theme is “7 days, 7 photos”, meaning we only get to take one picture each day. We can’t take a picture, delete it, and take another, no. We must use the one and only picture we take for the day.
The point is for us to really focus on our subject, frame the photo right, and make sure we adjust our camera setting prior to taking the picture. It is suppose to help us focus on our subject, instead of just point, and shoot, and pray for a good result.
I am back to work tonight so I went out early to take a picture. There is a little walking trail near the house with a basketball court nearby. I have never seen anyone use it except myself, but I always enjoy the spot.
I wanted to frame the basketball net with the trees behind, going for a grainy type black and white type photo. I am happy with the result. Should be a really fun/challenging week. Some of the photos might be sub-par for the week, but we will strive for good photos.

Janet and I had a wedding adventure out in Green’s Harbour this week and it was a delightful time. It was filled with friends, fun, good weather and beer.

First picture is from Friday night when we settled in our cabin inHeart’s Delight (yes they is a place name). It was a quaint little community with friendly people, beautiful sunsets (as seen in the picture) and alpacas!

Picture two is from Saturday morning when I went on a little photo walk. I These wooden fences pretty much define rural Newfoundland for me. I tried to incorporate the fence and the community of Heart’s Delight in the picture. 

Picture three is of today. We went for sushi when we got home. This is Soy Sauce. 

New theme tomorrow, no idea what it is yet. But I also go back to work after 20 days off. It’ll be nice to get back into a routine.

We went for a walk around Signal Hill tonight, it was a wicked evening. Here, Melissa and Bigg-E walk towards Cabot Tower.

So this is the picture dump from the week that I was away in New York City. It was a deadly trip, saw lots of cool stuff, and took lots of cool pictures. I did take a picture every day and I tried my best to stay within the theme. 

Picture 1: Went to the Lego store and this was above the archway inside. I thought it was a really fitting saying as it was architecture week. The sculptures inside were all made out of legos and it was truly incredible. After being in the store I can see why people have such an addiction to collecting lego sets.

Picture 2: We went sightseeing that day to some of the famous building in NYC. This is a picture of the New York Public library, a truly incredible building with a lot of history. One of my favourite places we visited on the trip.

Picture 3: Wanted to showcase the night-life around Times Square. It literally always has a bunch of people around and non-stop traffic. Wish I had my tripod with me for moments like these.

Picture 4: Went to the Metropolitan Museum and it was boring as shit. However, they did have an incredible Egyptian exhibit that featured really sculptures and bricks from way back when. They were architectural kings back in the day, and to see this stuff preserved and on display was incredible. 

Picture 5: Baseball day! What an amazing place to experience a baseball game. I liked the reflection in Janet’s sunglasses as I thought it captured the day nicely.

Picture 6: I’ve wanted to go to this exact spot and take this exact picture for months after I found it on the internet. It is a picture of the Empire State Building framed within the arch of the Manhattan Bridge. Janet and I travelled specifically to Brooklyn so I could take this picture, it was a good day.

Picture 7: Water week, non theme - Times Square in all its glory

Picture 8: Another non-theme, we spent all day in the airport so I didn’t get much chance for pictures, so I took this one as we were flying into St. John’s 

Overall, a deadly ‘ol trip! Also, no posts the weekend, will do a picture dump when I can.

This is Leslie, one of neighbours dogs, she is a cute little thing, who barks non-stop. Janet and I nicknamed her “The Protector” as she barks to protect her family. In this picture she is getting wet from the sprinkler, I don’t think she is too impressed.

Meet Stan, this is Janet’s Muppet she made while we were in NYC. She made this Muppet at a toy shop called “FAO Schwarz”, which is the only place in the world you can do this thing. Janet was in her absolute glee while she picked out the body colour, eyes, nose, hair, and outfit. I think she did a lovely job.

This is Fritz the Boozer. He’s a gnome with a bottle of brandy that my Nan bought when she worked at Birks. He’s happy little elf, wandering through a drunken mist.

New theme is another camera setting. We are shooting at an F-stop of 4.0 all week. This is a common garden spider and the wonderful web she has woven.
