The Gallery has been disabled

I’ve recently moved web hosting providers and in the process did some backend upgrades.

It appears Gallery2, the software I was using to manage the image gallery is no longer being maintained and lacks compatibility with the newer versions of software I’m running.

I spent some time trying to migrate it but honestly I don’t think it’s worth it. If you want something special contact me. Largely this site exists for me to randomly post pictures at this point.

Fresh Thunderstorm

I was on the phone with my mom and saw a flash out the window. I looked at the weather report, said nothing about thunderstorms and just ignored it. Maybe it was someone’s headlights. Then it happened again, at which point I told my mom I’d talk to her later.

Upon getting outside this is what I was greeted with.

I took a couple more pictures in the backyard before I moved front. When I moved to the front yard I caught this.

Clarkston Update

I processed a couple pictures from the Cruisin’ to Clarkston event tonight as well as did a couple photos from this morning. The crop duster was literally flying out our front window about 100 yards away dusting the field in front of the house.

I must say, waking up to a rotary engine in a high whine isn’t a bad thing, though if it had weapons attached to it I would probably think otherwise.

I finished up another picture of the Cuda and did one picture of the Pontiac.

Cruisin’ to Clarkston

The wife and I spent part of our Saturday in Clarkston at the Cruisin’ to Clarkston Car show. There were many good looking rigs with some serious head turners. One of my personal favorites was a 1973 Plymouth Cuda, with 2 inches chopped off the top. The Cuda on its own already looks sleek and mean, this just looked like it was flying at a standstill.

I have a bunch of other pictures of the Cuda however I’m not done tweaking them yet so they’re not posted. Subscribe here for pictures from the car show to know immediately about new photo posts. Most of the preliminary work is done; there is still a bunch of work to be done however.

I also met someone with a beautiful 1964 GMC. I am a Ford guy through and through. All three vehicles in my driveway are blue ovals, and my boat is powered by a Ford engine. This doesn’t mean I will ignore a good looking Chevy or GMC, I’m just not going to run out and buy one, classic or not. Mopar is a different story because well, I [email protected]#$ing-lutely love the Charger. But I digress, so back to the subject at hand.

High Speed Photography

I wanted to take a break today from working on my current projects. I want to get them done, but I also don’t like spending all my time behind a computer. I do that all week long for my day job, I really would prefer to spend some time away from it during the weekend. I was looking in a photography book and said, hey why don’t I do some “Doc Edgerton” shots. I don’t have access to high speed strobes currently; however the camera shutter will do 1/4000th of a second. So I busted out my work lights and proceeded to heat up my living room. The results however were quite decent.
