Curious Camera 3 - 2nd Place!

I was informed today that my Holga pano of the Cyclone on Coney Island was awarded 2nd place in the Curious Camera 3 competition!

The show opens this week on April 30th.  Click here for details.  I won't be able to attend so if you happen to be in the area go check out the show and send me pictures.

Below is the version of the Cyclone I submitted.  I also have shown the same image with a sepia tone.  Click here to see the sepia version.

More from Baltimore's Graffiti Alley

Often I get on a roll shooting during a period and in the process don't have the time to edit and sift through all of the images I have shot.  This is one of those cases.  Last summer I was have a ton of fun exploring Baltimore with a good friend and ended up with tons of images.  Recently while I was transferring all of my files to a new computer I rediscovered some of the images I took when we ran across a group of graffiti artists preparing B'mores graffiti alley for an upcoming event.

I originally posted a few images up on Flickr, you can check them out here:

And here is one of the ones I recently sat down and edited.  enjoy.

Day 28, 29 and 30 a bit late

So here are the last 3 images from Jake's 30 days of recovery from heartworm treatment.  I got a bit lazy and tired of being cooped up in the house so I procrastinated getting these edited and on the blog.

They are cropped a bit different because I fashioned myself a film holder for my Polaroid images so I wouldn't have to keep cloning out the Newton Rings.  Once I clean up the holder and make it all fancy I will be sure to post images. Until then enjoy these last images.  Doing the project was fun and it helped me get through the long month of worrying about Jake.  Of course he was a trooper and did great, enjoyed all the attention and settled right into his new comfortable life.  I don't think he will ever give up the left side of the couch.

So far Jake is doing well in the city (he was a country stray).  He is loving his walks around Old Town Alexandria and his strength and stamina are building each day.  I am hoping to have him ready for a trip to the dog park within the next week or so.  For the most part he is pretty easy to train and I am trying to include him in most of my outings to get him used to being at my side and in public with lots of distractions.  He is still overwhelmed by all the sounds and people and dogs, but hopefully he will calm down over time.  Now all we have is one more surgery on his cherry eye in June and he should be all fixed up!
