Snowfall

Ah, the first snowfall.

I actually got a little freaked out about not posting an image yesterday.  I certainly didn’t want to get out of the habit of shooting so I’m glad it snowed because I recently posted that I wanted it to so I could get some snow pictures.

Ta-da.  Of course I shot Handley.

Front Cover

Heads up.  Watch for the 2015 Winchester City calendar.  Yours Truly is featured on the front cover (well, at least my image is) as well as multiple months inside.

Warming Up

Getting ready for our last Handley holiday concert.  Seems like this is my view at a lot of venues.

This has been my view for many Handley productions over the last 6 years

Astro Wing

Give me enough time and I’ll eventually cover the whole school.  I’d need a lot of time, though.

Inside

I’ve shot plenty of stuff on the exterior and I’ve always wanted to just walk around inside and shoot, but I never can get it completely empty – until today.  I took advantage of some time before the annual band holiday concert and did a little walk-around.  I know a lot of Handley faculty follow these posts so I hope I wasn’t too far out of bounds with my little photo walk.  I’m really digging the updated Protune features on the GoPro – now I’m just waiting for the GoPro cameras to start shooting in RAW.

I like what it can do, but there's still such a difference between JPEG and RAW images in post.

Closing Time

It’s a real race to get in position for the sunset these days.  The last buses from the school day haven’t even left the school, yet!  It’s worth it though.  I’m flying from the comfort of a heated vehicle these days.  I wonder how easy it would be to fly from a moving vehicle.  I suppose I should be even more careful now that the FAA is gaining ground with the NTSB, huh?

This one’s on my gallery site, too.

 

Graffiti

So it’s not graffiti.  I thought it was something like a senior hallway that changes every year or something like that.  Nope, it’s a wall of constellations.  Yeah, look really closely.  I always wondered what it was.  And I’ve always wanted to take a photo of the cupola through the glass hallway.  Here’s both – well, sort of…
