i've decided to go backwards

i'm shooting film:
it's expensive,
it takes longer,
and it's harder.

for the first time in my life, i have great gear, with pretty much all the right lenses, etc...
but i've decided to go backwards
the end is the beginning, is the end...



anyway,
this film shot, of the Delray RR tower,
is my favorite
of the recent ones that i've been editing.
this shot is a little off on the color, but it's old expired film
and i think it looks cool...

at one time,

delray had a large Jewish community.
now, the jewish people
as well as most people,
have left delray...
but
here's a current photo of
the first hebrew congregation synagogue
on burdeno


and here's a photo of the gunsberg's building


i don't really know what this building was originally,
but it was likely built by, or for
a jewish family...
if that's the case,
the Gunsbergs
likely went to the aforementioned synagogue...

unless they were bad jews?
in that case
they're going to hell.

i almost had to shoot a pitbull, when i took this photograph

stand your ground, right?
anyway, i started shooting some film again.
I shot this on 35mm,
i'm waiting on the negatives
so i can upload one of those shots
and compare the film
to the digital...
i did get one roll back from the lab today
and it was blank
that's right,
blank
36 exposures of nothingness...

i forgot that i was supposed to be blogging again

here's a shack
in delray.
i never knew the person/people who used to live here
and i'm not really sure if anyone lives here now?
detroit is full of house that make you say, "there's no fucking way anyone lives in That house"
and then low and behold:
on trash day, there's a garbage can,
sitting out front.


i'll have to go back on garabage day
and see if anyone's home...

i'm trying out new processing and raw conversions

some of these recent posted images need to be replaced,
but i may just say fuck it...
i'm trying out some new things
learning more about image profiles
and profiles for web and monitors, etc.
it's all pretty boring and confusing
i'm posting the final images on my website


anyway,
here's a photo of some pet coke piles
on the banks of the detroit river
near Zug Island

yum! you can taste it over the internet...
