Star Wars Images

So another competition at the camera club all about movie titles. I was stumped as to what I could shoot for movie titles. But then I remembered that I have a whole bunch of star wars toys! I have never really done much table top or still life photography but these were fun.

Star Wars

The Empire Strikes Back

Return of the Jedi

 And one for laughs !

Public School

I know this old school house was scheduled to come down but was not sure when. In steps social media and boom there are pictures of it coming down. Thank you Craig Hotrod & Chris de Laat. I stopped on my way home from work last night. The most interesting thing to me is that the heavy equipment operators took the whole building down and left this for the weekend. As if to give us all one last look at Welland South Public School. Thank you whoever you are.

Negative Space

The third "directors challenge" at the camera club this year is negative space. A tricky subject. Its amazing how so much space can draw so much attention to what is left in the picture. So what is the subject? The space or what is left ? Hmmm interesting .....

Crystal Beach Ice Caves

Isn't it amazing how social media works. Kassie and I drove down to Crystal Beach on Saturday afternoon to check out the ice caves because we have seen lots of peoples pictures online. Well so did everyone else because the cars were lined up down the road you couldn't even get into the parking lot! and its a big lot. So with me being interested in taking pictures we decided to come back in the early morning. We were not disappointed. Might have to go back.

Update: Since nobody can get there because traffic is backed up to the QEW !

Dundurn Castle

Went on a shoot to Dundurn Castle in Hamilton. Its a very neat building and there was a lot to photograph, just needed more time ! I tried to concentrate on natural light coming through the windows.
