(Aug 30) August in Miller Place finally ends.

everything's gone gray
My very first photos as a child were in fact, black & white. Another thing I caught just the tail end of.

It’s not that there was no color film when I was a child. Color had been commonplace since my parents time. But B&W was still cheaper, though not for very long.

we're not in kansas anymore, toto
Today of course, we’ve gone from B&W film being more expensive than color, to film itself in danger of extinction.

I haven’t shot on film in twelve years now.

If I recall correctly, my very first photos were similar to these,

(Aug 29) The never-ending August continues. Having gone right from the house to Cedar Beach, I next went left to Cordwood Landing County Park. It is a strange place with a path that’s hard to follow. Is this tl;dv; ? (view) I took around 300 photos, so I’m only posting about a sixth of them. Five pages to click through.

(Aug 23) It is still August on this photoblog (forever?).

I start again, down Harbor Beach Road.

There are a variety of different “views” here.

I’ve been trying to get a bee in flight forever.

I’ve never seen anyone actually sitting here.

In all these years, I’ve never been on this path before.

It’s just like this one!

Yet one more place nature is prohibited from nature.

Someone perhaps didn’t get the memo

This place is in many ways the opposite of the WTC
