After a bit of delay, the site is refreshed and new photos are up. I had worked with some vintage cameras that we have, and I really liked them as models. Perhaps Ill try something similar with our more 'modern' cameras.
At the end of the month Jeff and I are going to Chicago for a few days. Not enough time to see everything, but hopefully we will get some interesting photos out of it. I am hoping to find interesting old buildings downtown. We shall see.

I am home sick this week, and this morning as I was laying there trying to sleep- I thought about some photos I took of some vintage cameras that Jeff has. So since I am unable to sleep, I think I will try to make some use out of the day and work on those photos. Hopefully they will be ready and loaded to our site this evening.
The photo above of the Madonna in her grotto is a favorite of mine. I have taken a few of her from different angles, on both digital and B/W film and she always looks so beautiful and serene. I find religious icons to be fascinating so I am always on the look out for opportunities to capture them to digital or film.
The photo below of Mary at the crucifixion ( another of my favs!) was taken inside the sanctuary under very poor light conditions. Jeff and I each took several of her to try and get one clear one. We didn't have the option of flash and were trying to remain respectful of the worship space. What I really needed to do was to stand on the main altar and shoot from there- but somehow I think that would have been frowned upon.
Ok now on to processing!
