    Here is an abandoned building way up north in the middle of nowhere.
    I won't say it was the end of the world but you could see it from there.

    Lots of amazing stuff here recently! Including (but not limited to):

    @Munin - love these grainy city shots. Does that really say "WRIGHT BANK NOTE COMPANY"?

    @COOP - top & bottom ones of the artist are perfect!

    @NumberIV - bottom one is fantastic, composition & colour

    @photomagex - great graffiti-spotting, there, and a perfect composition around it.

    While we're here, has anyone had any experience mounting M42 lenses to Nikon (or anything else that requires optical glass for infinity focus)? I'm guessing that it'd be pretty sketchy, but hoping it'd be more cool & lo-fi rather than just awful. I ask because I've got quite a few M42 primes kicking about and nothing else to do with them, so it might be worth the £10-20 for an adapter just to see.

    @ 256- I say try it anyway. What can it hurt?

    Speaking of lo-fi: Here's my apartment via the Olympus Pen...

    tatami

    And this is the shot I was setting up with that Holga pinhole you see there...

    pin

    I liked using the pinhole, it makes my apartment look epic. But developing medium format is too expensive to have as many blown out shots as I got with it, so I gave it to a friend.

    Hey! I'm back!! Woo!

    I went out to The Danforth this afternoon to do some shopping and here are three highlight shots taken in one of the small markets.

    @Oldhat -- Wow, the light is really nice esp if the fluorescents seen in the first shot are the primary source. What kind of rig were you using?

    took these during the last snowstorm.
    just before dawn, out the back window:


    hillside east of my house


    not so much a good photo as showing off a cool find. found this dude's whole skeleton in my woods. apparently was sharpening his antlers and got super tangled in a rope tied to a tree. took me a solid 5mins to just get him unwound. Kept this for myself, and i'll try to bleach it once it warms up a bit.


    took these all with the cheapie, didn't have my SLR handy.

    some recent shit. the first one is a quick-edit, still haven't gotten around to the final version, but you get the idea.

    @256: Thank you very much :) And indeed it does say "Wright bank note company".

    @Photomagex: Your toronto building photo has really interesting tones. Are they due to paint/color of the building, or is that a sunlight pattern?

    @old hat: That last shot really makes me hungry.


    Now I have a question, that I might have asked before: are we using this thread for showcasing our work only, or do we also encourage constructive criticism and learning?

    @ Munin - the tones in that shot are as is, however, the fact that it is a mirror image
    almost makes it seem there are two light sources

    @ 256 - I must admit that the graffiti was planted by me digitally. It is from a lino cut
    print I did. I just thought it really suited this place.

    @ krakatoakatie - holy frickin crap, that is infuckingcredible!

    @ everyone - please keep the great photographs coming. I love this thread

    Here are some photos from a visit to the wax museums of Niagara Falls

    I selectively removed the colour from the background of this shot and lowered the
    saturation of the colours that stayed.


    I played around with the colours on this as well to give a black light feel to it
    and outlined it somewhat with black.

    Here is a piece I've been working on all night.
    Used my wife's eyes and made them into something rounder.
    Found a nice skull photo I took many moons ago at the ROM.
    I displayed on one of the more picturesque basement windows in town and there it was - done in 2.5 hours.

    A photo of my dear late Grandma's hands.
    I remember she was arguing because she didn't want me to photograph her wrinkled hands.
    I told her she should be proud of them. They spent close to 100 years cooking delicious meals
    for her children, her grand children and her great grand children. Those hands have comforted
    all of us all at one time or another.
