All one has to do is look up, and a city looks completely different.
Looking up is something not done enough by the people who live in New York.
Here’s a gallery of random images I took walking around NYC:
Here’s a small gallery of Zion National Park. I took these in the spring of 2007:
The same day I took the photos of Glendale Cemetery, I also took photos of the nearby Glendale Steps. They’re an old WPA project that fell into disrepair. They have since been restored, but I got there first. There are two symmetrical flights going up the hill from Glendale Avenue to South Walnut Street. At the time these pics were taken, the flight on the western side was overgrown and impassable. Like the Glendale Cemetery images, the color was an accident.
Here are some more pics from my locked flickr account. These are of Glendale Cemetery in Akron, Ohio. These are from way back in August of 1999. These were all taken with black and white film, but I mistakenly scanned them in color, and this is the result. I considered it a happy accident so I left it, and did some minor fiddling with saturation levels. The differences in tone was how the scanning software interpreted the varying levels of exposure. The picture of the road snaking through the cemetery is the most interesting to me, as the grass is kind of green. I swear I had nothing to do with that. There is no color information at all in the negatives, yet there it is — green grass.
I recently scanned in some old prints I made in high school. The negatives are long lost, unfortunately, so this small sample is all that remains from back then. All of these pics were taken somewhere around 1991 to 1993. Continue reading “Photo Dump: Some Old Pics”
