International Snow Sculpture Festival 2017

We've missed this event the past couple of years.  So we made a real effort to get there this year.  I think this entry from Mongolia was the best:

The them of this sculpture was, we are all family.  This year though, there seemed to be no clear overall theme.  And we thought the general Quality was not a good as in the past.  But this week, we'll take a look at the best ones that were still in good condition.  See the 2017 Winners here.

52 Roll Week #4: In the Streets

I think we are past testing the Fuji GA645Zi camera.  So now we take a look at what for me is a new film:  Lomography C-41 films, this time ISO 400:

Sharing a few of my favorite signs from the 
"Support Our Muslim NeighBors" Rally last weekend.  
I bought the Fuji GA645Zi for street photography.  
This was our first official street outing.

Continuing A Theme: The Power Plant Project

You've seen this before in many images of the Indian Peaks:

Above a Photomerge of 3 - 35mm images from 2012.  The Project proposal is to photograph from every location around Boulder where the smoke stacks from this Power Plant are visible.  And it's visible from a lot of interesting places.

So why another Project?  Because it would get really boring just photographing one thing all the time.  I know some people do that.  But it wouldn't work for me.  I have a third Project to propose.  and then we are off and running.  Of course my posts will not be limited to these three projects.......

Tech Info for This Project:
Minolta XD-11
Ilford HP5 Film (ISO 400)
Tamron 28-200 Zoom Lens

Project Oriented Posintgs

As I move into 2017 I want to have a bit more purpose.  My 'Personal Vision' class last year had some good points, and one is to have more focus.  So I'm going to assign myself projects.  One Project that has been out there but not rigorously pursued is the 'Barn Project'.

So we Revisit the Purpose of that Project, and you'll be seeing more Barns in the future.
