the long decline

This may be the end of updates to this blog. It has become redundant in the process of redesigning my main website. So, head on over there and have a look. It's not done yet, but my bloggy part of the site is up and running so I probably won't be hanging out over here all that much.

I took this on my lunch break yesterday. It takes me about 10 minutes to walk to the cemetery. It doesn't give me a lot of time to shoot, but it's a nice break.

different setup

more abandon


I love seeing nature reclaim space.

I was in Saint John last weekend for Easter. The weather cooperated enough that I had the chance to go do some test shots that will hopefully become the basis for a series some day. There's an area close to where I grew up where the outlines of a neighbourhood were sketched but never filled in. There are roads, underground electrical wires, drainage systems, fire hydrants, etc. but there have never been any houses. Over the years it's been overgrown and things have been stripped away. People try to set fires and teenagers party and smash stuff. I love it. These pictures are tests. I would like to go back with the right equipment in the right lighting to spend some more time there. For now, you'll have to enjoy these.


In other news, I ordered a new lens while in Saint John as well. It's a Canon 50mm f/2.5 macro. I'm excited about it. It may not be exactly what I'm looking for but it was in my current price range and will definitely be better than no macro lens. Now it's just a tortuous wait and trying to figure out the best way to get it to Yarmouth from Saint John.

crocus


I spent most of the day in the garden/yard yesterday. I got about 1/10000000th of the work done that needs to be done, but with gardening I find the work as important as the result. I don't think it would feel like spring if my shoulders didn't hurt from raking. I rewarded myself with some picture taking of what is currently blooming.


About a week ago I liberated some incredibly new-looking shelving from a dumpster outside the mall. Turns out that it fits perfectly in our shed. Couldn't fit any better.


I got a delivery notice today for a package. I think I will have my mug in my hands tonight.
