    A few shots from the first mini gallery post I put together for my site:

    I really like that closeup of the cue ball.

    This is a fantastic thread with some incredible shots -- I've been following along since the beginning, and figured I'd throw my hat into the ring.

    This photo is a few seasons out of date, but I've been going through my large heap of photos that I never got around to processing/publishing....


    Unfortunately, I've been banging my head against the wall trying to deal with colour-calibration issues. With respect to photography, I'd consider myself an "enthusiastic amateur", and can't really afford calibrated monitors nor calibration equipment. On my desktop PC (where I do my image editing), the image above looks too bright and oversaturated, but it looks just right on my laptop screen.

    Does the image look grossly oversaturated to all of you?
    Any tips for dealing with the colour-calibration issue?

    Proving once again that I have no financial discipline, I ran out and bought a low-end monitor calibration device today. I know it doesn't provide pro-level accuracy, but it's a huge step up from using freeware gamma tools and eyeballing it!

    Naturally, now that my screens display nice colour, I've been working on some black & white images. ;-)

    This is my sister and one of her (many) antique hat-display heads:

    Okay, I'll stop now.
    You can click all of them if you want to see the bigger versions. Some of them are worth it.

    Thanks a lot, RadioGuy!
    That aspect of how trees grow baffles me. I wonder what it is in their process that stops them growing into tangles.

    After finally scouting the derelict convent, I went to the abandoned textile works again, this time with friends, at night.

    Sure, the picture's crappy and it's terrible lighting, but hey - Give us credit'; the place is haunted. Haunted as fuck.

    I knew that starting to post here was going to cost me in the long run-- I need a bigger memory card. and maybe a digital camera that's not a six year old point and shoot. enough blather, have some pictures:
    sunset at work Uptown

    outside a junk shop in the french quarter.

    there's a festival going on this weekend, so naturally that means
    sorry about the large image, but it looks too dull at the usual size.

    I know there are better shots in this pile, but these are a decent start.

    edited to fix a typo that I couldn't ignore.

    Nice to see another burlesque photographer in the mix!

    LOST IN SPACE - Big Finish

    This is the closing number of the Atomic Bombshell's latest show, a huge tableau that required two pictures to pull it together. I don't often manage live panorama shots, but this one made me want to do backflips when I realized it worked without much artifacting.

    A ladybug sat down on a blade of grass next to me while I was out in the park reading.

    @allana: your Cuba pictures keep reminding me of places I walk by all the time around here in New Orleans. I enjoy the fact that they're making me take a second look at a lot of things.

    apologies for the big picture, I like the detail too much to post it small:

    the local graffiti artists have been enjoying themselves thoroughly of late:

    Peter Scott is MADE OF METAL

    Not bad for a pocket camera on a dull day. The horking great image is probably a necessary evil, much smaller doesn't work well for this one, sorry.
