What Is She Doing Now?

I took this picture back in the 1980’s in Penn Station. I was into photography back then and always carried my camera with me. Right when I took this picture, the little girl turned around and looked at me.

This picture haunted me for a long time. I always wondered what happened to that little girl. She probably is in her 30’s by now. I kind of wish I could find her and give her a copy of the picture.

Would be funny if I met her and gave her the picture and she said, “I always wondered what happened to that guy who took my picture way back when.”img034

Tales From The Weird (UFO?)

 I got a new phone a couple of weeks ago with a camera. I was taking a selfie to send to this girl. When I looked at the picture I noticed a white something coming from the sky. I used the camera before and never had a problem. At first I thought it was a lamp post. But you can see one of the lamp post in the picture and see it’s not that high. Then I thought it was a flag pole. I went back to where I took the picture and there’s no flag pole. Plus it’s leaning a little.
 At first I thought it was going into my head but I see it’s behind the trees.
 It has to be something with the camera. But then if it was something with the camera, the line wouldn’t be so perfect.

Mouthwash Picture

I used to have a Pentex ME Super at one time. With “real” film. Now all I have a little Vivitar digital camera. I plan on getting a good digital camera one day. I want one where you look through the lens instead of the viewfinder. When I catch up with some bills, I’ll see.

I used to laugh when people said, “This camera takes good pictures.” It’s not the camera, it’s the person taking the picture. (lol)

Still, when the lighting is right and the stars are in place, you can get a good picture with any camera.

I got this picture just when the light hit it at the right angle.018

The Burden Of The Common Man (a picture)


I took this picture when I worked on Wall Street with a Pentax ME Super. Then I had a little darkroom in my basement apartment and developed the film and printed it out in there.

IIRC, the building is the side of the Federal Hall building.

I was in the right place at the right time to get this. The big window towering over the man who looks like he has a lot on his mind.

Out all the pictures I used to take, this is my favorite because it looks like it has a meaning.


First Picture

This is from the first roll of film I ever shot. I had a Pentex ME Super camera and bought a cheesy darkroom set. It came with everything, even a cheap photo enlarger. I set my darkroom up in my bathroom. I could only work at night.

Took this around 1976. People that only shot on digital don’t know what they’re missing. Shooting the picture was fun but the real fun was in the darkroom developing the roll of film.

I got to the point where I would buy the film in bulk and roll it myself.

Not bad for the first roll of film.
