I Can Climb Fences

Here’s last week’s mischief maker up to no good at the race track once again. This time he climbs. He’s seen climbing the fence to get back to the area he’s supposed to be. This photo was taken on the same day I just didn’t get around to publishing it. I thought it would make a pretty cool framed image :). the layout was done with an application i used to use in my ios days that I bought the second it became available for mac. Diptic makes it really easy to layout images in a fairly elegant and clean way. i’m not being paid to say this it just works. Just like the initial photo I posted of this young boy last week., these images just felt way better in black and white. I guess it was a black and white light kinda day. So I leave you with this question, which of the four images are your favourite. I’m on the “fence” (lolzzz) about top left and bottom right what say you, leave it in the comments...

The Jumper at kingston waterfront

At this moment, he is weightless, that second when everything is still. when your upward force is exactly equal to the effect that gravity has on your body. That second that everything and anything seems possible. Hope is weightless and bound by nothing. Believe in your actions, act on your truths follow your gut. Take your leap of...

Human Interest :: Little Mischief Maker The Old Timer and the Rider

About two weeks ago I had to cover horse racing at  for the first time in 2014. I’m not normally excited about the sport as I have zero interest in gambling what so ever. After shooting horse racing for the first few times it does lose its appeal. I’ve even worked with pocket wizards at the track to spice up the coverage and experience for my self and possibly the paper however that never made the papers as they’re really about that old fashion coverage -_-.. anywhoo. This time I kept my eye peeled for anything else that I saw that would make an interesting photo; to keep me awake and sane as I counted down the hours to the final race. I saw a few  and I liked em so much I decided to share it. Human Interest Little Mischief Maker This little kid amused me. He jumped the fence of the track, he’s walking in a restricted area yet instead of being stealthy he was doing the Jefferson Walk about the place. The image felt better in black and white so, I did the conversion in post, toyed with the levels and monochromatic contrast a bit. The Old Timer The fatures of the old man in the middle really caught my attention, literally he was “human interest” for me at least. His missing teeth, his unkept gray.. no white hair and beard and his track sheet clutched in his hand as he watched the horses cross the finish line. The Rider This one made me chuckle. Here we have the water truck that is used to wet the track prior to the races, after which a tractor drives by and rakes the track for a clean flat race track for the next race. at the back of the truck is a sign that says no riders, to the right of the sign is infact a rider....
