So now that it's summer, (although it doesn't quite feel like it) I like to explore where I live. That means taking the camera along with and seeing what happens. It isn't always interesting but I can count on at least one interesting image.
Yesterday was no different. I learned that the building that Essanay Studios was in where Charlie Chaplin did most of his early silent film work still exists right by my home, so I thought I would check it out. A college now calls it home, and they are trying to restore the building, along with the original sound stage.
I also went downtown and took a stroll along the river which is beautiful! Blue skies, a light breeze, perfect, just perfect. I also decided to take my newest addition to my camera family out for a stroll as well. It's a press camera from the 1940's and took my first shots with that. I'll post more about that when I get the negatives developed.
Not everything you shoot will be groundbreaking but sometimes a little humor will go a long way, and the last shot is no different. Hamheads. That's all I can say.
