Better Than Real Because It's Not.

(Sep 8 ) Ran back to Cordwood Landing Park one last time for twilight photos.

The portal within the park

moar blue

blue is blue
The water crashing onto the beach always reminds me of Billy now. It frightened him as a puppy.

I like the blue shots more than these
Blurry ferns suggest it was breezy

Even though these are more realistic
I confused an earlier photo with this one. This is the one where you couldn’t see the people fishing.

(Sep 3) Ran back to Cordwood Landing Park to see what the camera could do in extremely low light.

darkness and poison ivy surround you
Don’t be fooled. By the time I took this photo, I couldn’t see anything through the viewfinder.

the path grows dim
I can’t remember for sure if I had a tripod or monopod, but I think I did use one.

and the forest comes alive
By the time I took this photo, I couldn’t see anything on the LCD screen either.

(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.

that toadstool has a tumor growing on it
I haven’t shot on film in twelve years now.

or a tiny pumpkin
If I recall correctly, my very first photos were similar to these,

at fungus eye level
photos of the yard.

In other news, … My wheels for the summer.

(Aug 19) It was on this trip that I realized a few things. One was that walking provided most of the inspiration for photo-taking. The other was (related to the first) that I may have finally gotten a nice camera but at the wrong time in my life. Knowing my time here was short, I hit the street.

begin journey here
I started out…

harbor beach rd.
This road is indeed long and winding.

the winding road
I’d intended to go all the way to the harbor.

the long road
It ends in Mt. Sinai at Cedar Beach.

wooden wreckage
Oh poison ivy, I curse your very existence. You other ivy are ok though.

Keep in mind though, this is suburbia. None of this is wild.

suburban street garden
But that doesn’t mean it’s not nice.

rock and decomposed dead shit
What the streets are made of.
Unfortunately I didn’t get far before stepping in poison ivy, upon which I hurried back home to wash.

Pseudoreal is still in August. The end of Miller Place was near.

There was a small bamboo “forest” at the edge of the proprerty

droopy bamboo
It doesn’t handle snow or rain very well

And a few flowers around the foundation

This guy ran around the yard a bit

falling apart
I’m surprised the hurricane didn’t blow this thing away
