I read an article recently about the City skyline here. It was about how there were so many skyline photos being taken and posted on social media like Instagram and Facebook and such that soon they will run out of photographs to taken. That we would need to stop and pack up and move on. Of course it was from a source that post an article from time to time like The Onion. It was mostly poking fun at the amount shared and how can you take a photograph of something over and over? I have shot the skyline a lot but there are a lot of different angles to shoot it from and with the river and weather changing, you really are getting a different photograph each time. I guess it is also a easy go to because a lot of the places to get the best skyline shots are easy to access and don’t involve a long walk or anything. Here is my post to another photograph of the skyline I did a week ago from the flood wall on a nice evening.

Great Falls Park is located in Fairfax County in Virginia. It is the great falls of the Potomac River and a sight to see.

Myself taking a self Portrait. I had come across this Yashica JP with a Yashinon 50mm f/2 lens at a store for a few dollars. It looked ok I cleaned it up a bit and this was from the first few frames. Shot with Delta 100 pushed to 400. Right into the mirror.
This is a friends dog that gave me a chance by being still for a few seconds. His name is Ghost.

Developing film a few months after shooting it is like revisiting trips and have those “Oh yeah I took that…”. The trip to New York back in December was a nice little trip but found that it was very crowded back at that time of the year. I brought a film and a digital camera with me but I wish I brought just one as I was going back and forth with them.
