SLR Photography Revisited

For Christmas Heather got me a binder filled with pages for organizing and archiving negatives.  So, yesterday, in an uncharacteristic show of enthusiasm for slow, tedious tasks, I put all my negatives into this binder, segment by segment.  When I got that done, I decided to put all the corresponding prints into an album we had been given for our wedding but never used.  Flipping through my pictures got me excited again about photography.  I find it easy to get discouraged – I’m not an experienced photographer and I tend to be highly critical of any creative output I might venture to produce.  However, looking through these pictures got me energized about taking photographs.  I had been meaning to put together an album on my photo gallery of all my favorite SLR shots, but I got bogged down at some point and gave up.  Fortunately, with all the prints in an album, I found the task of picking favorites much easier than trying to do so looking through pictures online.  So, I present to you, my favorites.  I have this gallery broken up into 4 sub-galleries: people, places, things, and events.  I hope you enjoy them.

Below is one of my absolute favorites, from the Ringling Bros. Circus visit to Boston in October, 2006:

    You’ve really got some great shots! I especially enjoy the “things” category. We could decorate our house with your artwork. I’m glad you’re excited about photography again!

    Nice photo!! I like elephants. I’m sure if I knew more about photography I could say it had good composition or something, you know, the contrast between the gray of the elephants and the clouds reflected on the building…

    Also, I really dig the picture in “things” of the chairs on the tables at Dunkin Donuts. You’re pretty good for “a non-experienced photographer.”

    Thanks. I do my best. I’d like to get into it more but it can be a very expensive hobby and expensive hobbies and grad school don’t mix so well. I’ll keep you posted.

    Yeah Colin, I like your photos. Your People series is my favorite.
