“I’ve been walking in central park
Singing after dark
People think Im crazy
Ive been stumbling on my feet
Shuffling through the street
Asking people, what’s the matter with you boy?” – The Rolling Stones

Yes we must define his high desire
Stand erect and not detect
The anythings that we could not admire”

A major dilemma with many photographers is what camera to bring on an excursion that is not related to work. iPhone? SLR? Leica? Medium Format? Well when kayaking a river even I don’t want to put a Leica close to the water so for the 4th of July in Washington DC I opted to use my FED 5b. It’s a Russian knockoff of a Leica rangefinder with a fairly decent 50mm f2 Industar lens. I wasn’t concerned if this camera got wet or if it fell into the water while kayaking. eBay is full of them and it’s easily replaceable where a Leica is not unless you have lots of funds available.

Now the FED does not have IS or VR so bobbing up and down in the water even when attached to a tripod is going to bring interesting results. This image was about a 10 second exposure using Kodak 200 Gold film.

involves spraying crops with crop protection products from an agricultural aircraft.” – Wikipedia

Spent a couple days working on a project at the Cleveland Air Service in the Mississippi Delta last week with my good friend and fellow artist Will Jacks. Much more to come, stay tuned.

Google Maps shows this location as being in Newark, I’ll take it’s word for it since it was after midnight leaving NYC on Amtrak to head back to DC. Spent a great but quick 13 hours in the city of blinding lights.
