Weekend Shots




I made a post with this same title back on February, 10th.  Click here to check it out.  All the shots are kind of alike but different at the same time.  A different piece of yellow painted heavy equipment, a picture of the girl in almost the exact same spot but made with a different lens and a photo of our brand new bridge that's almost ready to drive on instead getting ready to be torn down.

Wednesday On The River




We spent all day Wednesday doing some water rescue training.  I made the first photo before we got started.  As you can see, the fog was super thick Wednesday morning. The second photo was in the afternoon when I was driving the boat on the Coal river headed toward the Kanawha.  In the bottom photo Saint Albans firefighter Sean Lowe (left) and training officer James Hill check the operation of the high line we made across the Coal.

Happy Birthday Kim!!


I made this photo last Friday evening when we went to The Blennerhasset for a short get-away to celebrate our birthdays.  Kim's birthday was today and mine was Friday.

Boomtown Days Nitro, WV




I'm kinda disappointed in my fireworks photos from this evening.  I usually try to get back a ways and get something interesting in the foreground, but I decided I wanted to get as close as I could and this is what I got.  Oh well, maybe next year I'll find a better spot.  It was still a great fireworks show.

Truck 311


The guys on the rescue truck were on a call Sunday evening and I was in the garage by myself  and noticed the light on the ladder and just had to take a picture.

Babcock State Park


We had planned to got to South Carolina this weekend, but a bunch of little things happened and we decided not to, so instead, we went and visited our cousins that were camping at Babcock.

I've got a bunch of photos of the mill, but it seems that every time I'm there I have to make another one.  It had just rained and the air was hazy and humid and the evening light wasn't the best, so that's why I converted to black and white.

Nerd alert!  This was a two minute exposure at f/8 and ISO 160 using a ten stop neutral density filter and a polarizing filter on a Canon 24-105mm lens at 24mm.
