This weekend brought with it the most anticipated Cars and Coffee of the of the year for the Tampa/St. Petersburg area. The monthly duPont Registry C&C normally takes place at its headquarters in St. Petersburg. This one was held across the bay at the Peter O. Knight Airport on Davis Island in Tampa.
I took the Minolta lens out again today. It wasn’t rainy enough to get the mimosa shot I was trying for the other day, so I tried to shoot the bees. (If you saw this post already, the added pictures are after the cat.)
We are pretty much rained in all week. Blah. I did take the opportunity to revisit the flowering plant on our front porch.
We have a plant that it flowering, so I took some shots of it using the 1963 Nikkor 50mm, all at f/1.4. It’s all creamy and dreamy. Also, there is a bonus cat at the end.
I was going to just write a comment response to Rooo sez, but making an actual post seemed like a better idea. Also, this is an “Idiot’s Guide...” because it’s written by one. If I can take this picture, so can you.
I went out for some late night/early morning adventures this week.
First things first. Yes, all those speaker cabinets are being used for one guitar, and that’s not even all of them in this shot. They are not just for aesthetics. They are very loud, which is really underselling it.
I came across this today.
I was able to get reacquainted with the darkroom over the weekend.
We paid a visit to the Star Wars and the Power of the Costume traveling Smithsonian exhibit on Sunday. It was the last day it was here. We would have gone sooner, but every time plans were made, something would come up. In a strangely ironic way, it seemed fitting to go on Easter Sunday.
I took the Exa to the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg with a roll of 3M Scotch 100 color film.
This is the roll of Fuji Neopan 100 Acros that was shot in the Exa. I pushed it to 400, kind-of.
I got the negative scans back for the three rolls of film I shot recently. This is the first of those rolls.
I hit up the Festivals of Speed in St. Petersburg on Sunday. I have a love/hate relationship with car shows. While there is always plenty of eye candy, it’s so hard to get a shot free of people and other cars.
I started editing some of my Grand Prix of St. Petersburg pictures that I passed over the first time. These are
This picture was in the batch I uploaded the other day.
Racing season is off and running! Last weekend was the season-opening weekend for IndyCar and Pirelli World Challenge. I was there trying to shoot as much of it as I could.
Yet another Yashica find in the house!
Consider yourself warned.
I went over to the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts today. That was the thing I was in a year ago. Something funny happened.
