Carlisle Field Day

with one comment

 

I photographed Carlisle’s Field Day this morning. It’s an event put together by the school’s physical education department for lower division students.

Notice the photo of the egg breaking in the egg toss? Well, I was standing behind one young lady who missed her egg. It cracked on my shin. My golden retriever Leo has been sniffing my shin since I came home. These were shot with an Olympus E-3 and E-510.

My Platoon

with one comment

I thought I’d salute my platoon since it’s Memorial Day. This is 3rd Platoon, Fox Co., 2nd Battalion 6th Marines in 1984 when we were stationed on Okinawa.

We were preparing to go into the field for several days. I took this photo on a tripod with a Konica FC-1. Yes, I carried a small tripod and camera into the field.

That’s me on the far left squatting with the green nose. I was a second lieutenant at the time. They were hard-charging devil dogs 24 years ago and probably still are.

PAW Week 12

with 2 comments

This week’s PAW is baby bluebirds at a neighbor’s home. 

They put a Bluebird house in their backyard and sure enough a pair of bluebirds made it their home. The babies hatched about a week and a half ago and the birds have not yet opened their eyes. 

My neighbors have a container of worms and give the mother and father some for breakfast and dinner. It’s pretty entertaining to watch the birds pick up worms and take them into the house. It’s also a little odd that they don’t mind having the house opened to view the baby birds. I guess it’s their way of saying thank you for dinner.

This PAW photo was taken with a Konica FT-1 Motor and is part of my project to shoot one roll of film each week and post a photo.

PAW Week 11

leave a comment »

This week’s PAW is of turtles sunning at Lake Lanier. This is a pretty common sight at the lake as the turtles seem to love this log. Sometimes there are as many as seven or eight there.

This is part of my project to shoot one roll of film each week and post a photo from it. This was shot with a Konica FT-1 Motor.

I shot dance photos on Monday at Hollingsworth Dance School. 

In one of the dances the ladies will be doing in their recital, they will be zombies. Here’s one of the ladies doing a jump dressed as a zombie. I shot this with an Olympus E-3.
