Warren Zevon – Hall of Fame?

Warren Zevon is up for the Hall of Fame! (Please Vote!)

I was contact by Timothy Paruszkiewicz a couple of weeks back, and he was thoughtful enough to reach out to ask if he could use some of my 1982 Ithaca College concert photos, and I was happy to say Yes!

Yesterday, I got a link to the video Tim produced – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5s5xi5fpXc0

and Yes, the Thumbnail for the video is my shoot!

Thanks again to Timothy Paruszkiewicz for asking and the video looks AWESOME!

If you are a Zevon fan, you will like this video!

and Yes, “his hair was perfect”!

I also realized while writing this Post, that I never said anything about another of my images appearing in the book “Accidentally Like a Martyr: The Tortured Art of Warren Zevon” by James Campion.

One of the most memorable conversations I had with James, was when he said to me, “You now have an image in the Library of Congress.”

Never in my wildest dreams did I think back in 1982, that taking a few pictures at an on campus concert would end up any where else then the school newspaper, and that my hoarding those B&W negatives would ever go anywhere.

Needless to say, keep your film images safe!

St Peter’s Quarry

My sister has been talking about St Peter’s Village for some time now, and with the kids just starting vacation, I was looking for something quick and easy to do.

After taking a scenic 30 minute drive, we parked and walked up the small little hill to the quarry, and from there I took these quick images.

In image processing, I went with a higher saturation and vibrancy then normal, to emphasize the colors from the paints and chalk that have dripped down over the rocks from the graffiti art, but the greens of the trees became to “hot”.

I took the color image and converted into a Black and White layer, and from there I cut a mask to enhance the colors of the rocks.

Certainly not the image I had in mind when I stood there, but I kind of like it.

Victory Brewing Company (Parkesburg) – The New Place

On Saturday night, I had the chance to attend a fundraiser for a local politician at Victory Brewing Company in Parkesburg, and of course I had to bring my camera!

This facility has been open for little over a year so it’s spotlessly clean.

It is a beautiful new facility, with some of it still under construction, and there are many plans for the future.

If you have more interest, check-out the Brewery Expansion page on Victory’s website.

When Parkesburg opens, I strongly recommend stopping in, especially during sunset!

Stylized Hay Bales

Folks that live in Chester County, or anywhere hay is harvested, have seen bale after bale just lying in fields.

So on this rainy day, I decided to take a second look at some of my images in my collection…

I am going to have to keep this technique in mind for future use!

If you are interested in how I processed these images, please let me know!
