31. Fireworks over Niagara

20051231.jpg

For those people who have followed my images over various sites, this may be a familiar photo. Fireworks over Niagara. Shot on film many years ago. I thought it was a fitting image for today though.

Happy New Years from Niagara Falls.

30. Morning Grass

20051230.jpg

I have been working all this week, only having had Christmas and Boxing day off. I work tomorrow as well, then back in again on Sunday. Leanne has been around so I have been a little too busy to shoot. If the weather was better I'd get out, but it really has not been very cooperative.

29. Roots

20051229.jpg

I have not shot in a little while so I am pulling from the archives today. This is a shot taken earlier in the year with a Canon EOS 1DS MKII. Canon's top of the line digital SLR. Does it make a difference in this photograph? Well, apart from being substantially larger than my other images, no. But the camera was a treat to use! Hopefully I can get some shooting in very shortly.

28. Forks

20051228.jpg

I put this composite together for something else and liked the look of it. These forks were featured previously.

27. James

20051227.jpg

This is a photo of my brother James taken at our family Christmas party. I have converted the original colour photo to a Sepia toned image.

UPDATE:
I have updated this image. It was originally processed on a different computer whose monitor was not colour calibrated and with software I wasn't fully familiar with. I didn't like it once I saw it on a better monitor. The original can be found here

26. Symone

20051226.jpg

This photo of my niece is a little out of focus, but I love the lighting on it.

24. Out of Focus, er, a little fuzzy

20051224.jpg

I finished wrapping gifts about 11:30 tonight, then shot a few pics to post. Like this shot of the light on my Christmas tree, things are a little fuzzy. To many little corners, small pieces of tape, and bows to keep straight. According to noradsanta.com, Santa was nearing the Florida Coast, so I should get off to bed so he does not skip my house tonight.

23. Light Shades in the Kitchen

20051223.jpg

Light shades in the kitchen. I like the effect of the depth of field.
This was shot with a Pentax 50mm 1.4 lens and a Canon EOS - M42 adapter allowing me to use my old Pentax screw mount lenses on my Canon camera.

20. Ice Chunks

20051220.jpg

Ice chunks along the Lake Erie shore. I am not very pleased with this one. The ice seems to be dirty in the photo, but didn't look that way when I was there, at least not like this.

UPDATE: I guess I should check the site after posting, I left this in draft, hiding it from the web.

20051215.jpg

This is a shot taken during a much warmer time, this summer. Leanne and I took a trip on the Niagara Helicopters. This was shot there.

14. Balloons

20051214.jpg

TOnight was our annual Christmas party at work and I was the official photographer. I liked the patterns of these balloons better when I shot this than I do now.

11. Eight

20051211.jpg

I don't know if it is a preference for forks, or a dislike for spoons, but I seem to shoot them a lot more.

Things have been pretty busy around here, mostly getting ready for Christmas. I have a few things I'd like to shoot, I just hope I can find time in the next day or so.

02. Dufferin Islands in the Snow

20051202.jpg

This is taken overlooking the waterfalls that I showed in a previous shot. The Niagara Parks Commission shuts down the waterflow into the park over the winter for some reason as we see in today's photo.
