I found this young lady in uptown Martinsville. Oddly enough she looks like someone I know.

PAW is a project to shoot a roll of film each week and post a photo. This was shot with a Leica M4-P.

PAW Week 17

Here I am again two weeks behind on posting a PAW. 

We went to the new Nationals stadium a couple of weekends ago. The stadium is beautiful and the electronic scoreboard is as big as I’ve seen anywhere. There’s nothing else quite like a day at the ballpark. As I have said in previous posts, I love baseball. 

One of the things I love about baseball is the bag of peanuts I always get. My seat will always be surrounded by shells no later than the second inning.  By the seventh inning stretch, it’s time for nachos. Somewhere between there might even be a hot dog. I always feel like I ought to leave someone a tip for having to clean up after me.

For the past several years, I have been in a fantasy baseball league with my son and his friends. This year they were all too busy to play. Last season, the final thing I’d do before going to bed would be to check my batting average, home runs, ERA and all the other stats. I knew the names and stats of nearly every player in the league, because I was constantly searching for players to help my team. There’s always next year. 

PAW is a continuing project to shoot one roll of film per week and post a photo. This photo was taken with a Leica M4-P.

PAW Week 16

Mattie and I had ate at The Front Page in Alexandria, Va. on Saturday. Since I’m a former newspaper guy, I enjoyed looking at all the old front page headlines and photos of important events in history. The Blue Cheese Burger was pretty good too. The photo was shot with a Leica M4P. This is part of my project to shoot one roll of film each week and post a photo.

After I read the sign on the speaker, I said “PLEASE NUMBER 9 PLEASE”. I shot this with a Konica FT-1 Motor.

PAW Week 14

with one comment

Yes, I know. I am three weeks behind in posting a PAW photo. I am posting three weeks in one day.

For week 14, I have a deer in the woods. I shot this with a Leica M4P with a 40mm lens from the driver’s seat through the open passenger window. If there are many animals that only see in black and white, this picture demonstrates why they need a good sense of smell. You can barely see the deer in black & white, but it’s pretty rare to shoot one with the rangefinder.

Apparently, the ducks and geese didn’t get the memo. They are fishing and swimming. This is part of my project to shoot one roll of film a week and post a photo.

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.
