Here are the photographs from my class I was able to scan before I started having major electronic issues... No, electronics and I don't really mix very well. Comments and critiques are quite welcome!

This is a photograph I took at the local park. It was also from my first roll of film.

Another photograph from the same roll as the first one. This was also taken at the same park.

Thanks for looking!

Is this a black and white I class?

These are lovely.  I'd crop the bottom fifth of the second one, and it'd look like a photograph around the period of Alfred Stieglitz.  (He turned the medium of photography into an art.  It was once simply a documentary tool)

and I really like the silvery quality of the willow leaves in the top left corner of the first photo.  did you use a flash?

Hi! Thank you for the compliments! Yes, this is for a black and white entry level photography class. I should probably mention the black and white bit next time in the title...

Thank you. I can see what you mean by cropping the second one, I'll give it a shot next time I'm in the dark room. I really like the photography from that time period so that was a tremendous compliment! I actually recently did a paper on Stieglitz's work. He sounds like he must have been an interesting sort of person and I loved his style.

No, I did not use flash. I took these at around 7 to 7:30 AM so maybe that's why it has the silver-like quality? The morning really has some of the best and most interesting light of the day.

I'm doing photojournalism at school, so it's always really neat to see the first black and white photos of students in our program.

these are really stunning! you should look into group f/64--your pictures remind me of that style.

What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.

I like your photographs, very tranquil ... the scene looks very familiar too.  Does this happen to be in Ithaca NY?

I checked your site out Eyevah, really nice work. I think the "Red" photograph of the leaves was my favorite.

Thank you Caitlinerd! I've heard a bit about f/64 from another one of my classes. Their work is very inspiring.

Thank you Goldfishes! Yes, this is Ithaca. Stewart Park to be exact. I was very surprised that you guessed. Smiley
