Riding and Photographing Downtown

Eighty Three Brewery
I've been documenting the progress downtown as Main Street opens and I have ridden my bike there a few times this week. Erin and Greg met me yesterday and after getting some shots we headed over to 83 Brewery to have a beer. I had also stopped at Dirty River Bicycle works to check on their progress in the new building which will be open on election day!

Wooly Pig Farm Brewing

Wooly Pig Farm & Brewery
Erin and I decided to take a day trip to the Amish Country area. We started off at one of our favorite breweries JAFB Wooster. After that we tried to go to a number of places - farms, markets, stores, but the crowds of people not wearing masks kept us away so we drove over to Wooly Pig Farm Brewing. Wooly Pig has great outdoor spaces and they had a fire going. You weren't even able to go into the building and they had a really great outdoor system going for ordering beers. We also got some awesome BBQ from the food truck.

Golden Gorge

Gorge in Fall
I took a quick evening break to walk across the High Level Bridge and down into the Gorge to snap a few Fall photos. I'm definitely starting to get the hang of how to set-up my Canon EOS R5 for photos like this. I'm still being stunned by the incredible detail and dynamic range from this camera. I can't wait to get my adapter and try some of my prime f/1.4 lenses on it!

Bath Nature Preserve in Autumn

Fall in Bath
Last evening Erin and I decided to go for a golden hour hike at Bath Nature Preserve. We were hoping to see the trees changing color in the Tamarack Bog but really there were only a couple of the trees visible ...and they were just starting to change(they are the only conifer that changes color). Regardless it was still an absolutely beautiful Fall hike and my first time using my new Canon EOS R5 for this kind of photography. There has been a learning curve getting the camera to operate the way I want for different situations - but the image quality is amazing.

2020 in B&W

Old Trail
Last Spring I was on a huge film kick,. At first I was shooting a lot of color but then I switched to black and white during the 'stay at home order' because I develop that myself. When I injured my back in early June that put an end to all my planned analog photography projects. So this roll starts with some late-spring snow and finishes just a few weeks ago. It is Kodak Tri-X 400 shot in my Minolta X-700 and developed in HC-110(b). I actually live-streamed myself developing it - you can see that HERE.
