Tapati Rapanui Youth Horse Race, with a couple of stage images

Argh, the horse racing image was a quick grab shot with a point-and-shoot, and a jpeg to boot – it was either that or miss it because I just wasn’t ready for it. I actually like it better than anything else I took at that particualr...

Continuing with the Island Portraits - two of them in the name hunt

The first image in this set, above, is of something I chased fruitlessly for a good while, almost giving up because it's almost impossible to catch the eyes when someone is wearing one of these things. They appear very practical for...

Two Books on THE STRANGE CASE OF ROGUE SWAN

Originally mine was only going to be a PDF eBook for the Rogue Swan people, and myself of course. After all, this was a major mini-project. I put that together and posted it for download by anyone who wanted it. By the way, it was also...

I took my camera out today to where all the wall paintings are going up downtown. Two of them were actively works in progress, so I thought I’d see what I could do with that. What I noticed, with the cloudy, flat lighting, was that the...

Three Portrait Shots – without names at this point

Wow, into page nine of folio images from the Island. For a project where the original goal was forty to fifty images, that seems incredible. There are three more portraits here, the kind I prefer to do where I roam around either catching...

Tapati Rapanui Youth Horse Race

with a couple of stage images

Argh, the horse racing image was a quick grab shot with a point-and-shoot, and a jpeg to boot – it was either that or miss it because I just wasn’t ready for it. I actually like it better than anything else I took at that particualr Tapati Rapanui 2008 competition with my SLR. It works best at maximum print size, 12x16 where the flying clumps of dirt really show up. Not to mention the faces in the crowd. Sometimes, with one’s own images, one will grow on you. More
