On Sunday, my beautiful fiance encouraged me to go early to see the “elites” run past and, amazingly, I was able to photograph the youngest winner of the Marathon, 20 year old Ghirmay Ghebreslassie! Just look at the focus on his face.

Hey everyone! I hope you all had wonderful weekends. I’m still getting used to using my used FujiFilm x100 camera. I’ve already posted several test photos to my Instagram, but thought I’d share them both here so you can see several examples. I’ll post again with more impressions of the camera once I’ve used it more. For now, I’m experimenting with trying to get a TriX “look” out of the camera. Have a great week!
This week, I’m testing a new old Fujifilm X100 camera I ordered from Unique Photo in NJ. It arrived yesterday and I’m very excited. I have 7 days to test it out. So that’s what I’m up to this week!
I’ll post the results of my tests soon and in the meantime, I hope you all have a great week!
Recently, I had the chance to meet director, sculptor and fine artist Jim Mckenzie in SoHo. We first got in touch on Instagram about a year ago when I saw photos of his bright, colorful, fanciful art with it’s touch of melancholy. When we met in person, I immediately noticed his eyes. They were full of mirth and energy. I’d even say he has, “laughing eyes”.
Thanks to BB Gun Press I was lucky enough to be at the sold out launch of Kristin Kontrol‘s summer tour at Baby’s All Right. Starchild opened the show- a charismatic musician paying homage to Prince. Next, Kristin Kontrol took the stage and the crowd buzzed with excitement. Lead singer Dee Dee (of Dum Dum Girls fame) was dressed in a silver space outfit and held the audience in the palm of her hand for the duration of the show. During breaks in songs, there was even silence as the audience marveled at Dee Dee. This is her first project after the end of the Dum Dum Girls.
Sorry that I only have time for a quick update today. I just got back from a weekend trip yesterday evening, and it looks like I’m going to cover a concert on Wednesday night! Today I’ve been doing some photography research…
I hope you had a great weekend! I had a restful one, the first in over a month, so it was a great relief. As my interest in street photography develops, I’ve been thinking a lot about purchasing the vaunted FujiFilm 100T, a camera a lot of street photographers have been talking about. Being ever-thrifty, I realized I should do a bit of research on YouTube and found the following two camera reviews. They’re good and, incredibly, the first review even takes place during a huge protest?!?!
