Efficient Land Use

Posted 2009.11.19 17.23 in Pointless Blather

Not long ago, I was driving through a part of town that I hadn’t been before. So I was looking around, sort of making note of what was around, so that I wouldn’t get lost.

At one point I passed a few guys standing around holding golf sticks, at the edge of a rather large open expanse of land – so I automatically figured, Golf Club. As I kept on driving, after a few moments there was a building and I figured it was the clubhouse. It was new, and rather modern-looking, with all angles and curves, so I thought, oh, it’s a funky new modern style golf club.

I couldn’t help notice though, that although they had a lot of land, it was fairly flat and boring, with almost nothing in the way of trees and water hazards and sand traps and stuff. But it was obviously new, and I don’t know anything about golf really.

I caught a glimpse of the name on the clubhouse, it was the something-or-other memorial something something chapel. Oh wait – that’s not a new golf club. It’s a new cemetary. So what were those guys doing with golfsticks?

More Pinhole Pics

Posted 2009.10.12 19.23 in Hobbies, Photography

I took some more shots today with my home-made camera. Made a silly mistake though – the 0.3mm pinhole is about three and a half f-stops from the big misshapen pinhole from Saturday, but I forgot to adjust my exposure times accordingly. So a lot of shots were under-exposed.

Still, a few came out not-too-bad. It’s a bit of a soft dreamy look, and I still find it amazing that the images come out at all, with no lens, just a wee little hole.

I still need to fix the film gate along the top – the felt is still getting in the way a bit. Other than that, and the under-exposures, it’s working pretty well I think.

Day Trip with Leanne

Posted 2009.08.19 17.17 in Hobbies, Photography

Yesterday I had a nice day with my sister, we drove around and visited some scenic spots and had some fun taking pictures and walking around. We visited the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park, the Cheltenham Badlands, and stopped at a few other unnamed places that caught our attention.

Here are the pics of this latest photo outing. All were taken with the 30mm f/1.4 lens.
