Some places, especially simple yet interesting places, can make excellent pictures- as well as a place to go. This is Victor's 1959 Cafe, a Cuban restaurant in Minneapolis which is one of my favorite places. The mixture of colors, siding, signs, and lines all combine to make it an interesting picture. 1959 is right around the corner on Grand St. in Minneapolis. Date: 9/21/07
Sorry I missed a couple days last week. Things were busy and I haven't been doing picture management recently. Will try to get back on track this week, starting with a real blast from the past....
This scan of a slide goes back to say 1955 or '56 or so? My first (and only) dance recital as part of the Oly Waugh School of Dance. It didn't take me too long to discover that my sense of rhythm was in my head and not my feet. But it makes a great picture with me and my mother.
Ninety-percent of good picture-taking is being in the right place at the right moment. Like being just southeast of Devils Tower in Wyoming when the Blue Angels went by on a training run. Date: July 25, 2007
This is the photoBlog of pmPilgrim. I have been taking pictures with all kinds of cameras since I was 8 or 9 years old. I may even scan some of those in and post them, too. That's a lot of years of pictures.
I now have a Nikon D40 digital SLR with Nikon zoom lenses. Most pictures taken after June 15, 2007 will probably be with this camera.
Before that I was using a Casio QV-3000EX since 2002. It still is a remarkable camera for its age and style.
