Another Week of Round the Clock Creativity

   Posted by: MB    in Daily

7 April 2010

So much to do and so little time meant yet another week of too little sleep. The third all-nighter happened this week, although in writing about it now, almost a week later, I cannot even remember which night that was. What I do know is that one day blended into the next into the next, and the camera sometimes went for more than 24 hours without use. So, we’ll just say on the seventh of April there was much sewing and no photography.

PubGuys Hat

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

7 April 2010
Got home from an excellent PubGuys recording session at Bronco’s in Hurst (listen to it here) to find that the PubGuys hats had arrived! Well, gosh, I still had to take a picture today, so three of my favorite things get all mashed together: Photography, PubGuys & me.
PubGuys Hat
All it needs is Marita Beth & Beer to round it out.
By the way, these hats will be available for sale on PubGuys.com for a mere $10 in the very near future. Support The Daily KRuMB and the PubGuys by buying one. :-)
Cheers.

Kenilworth in Black & White

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

6 January 2009
I’m sitting in a hotel room (the Radisson again), having just repacked all of my luggage for the return trip. We had a pleasant dinner of breaded plaice washed down with a good pint of John Smith while watching the unfortunate result of the Tott*ham v Burnley Carling Cup match. All of this on the heels of an otherwise lovely day.
When we got up this morning, it was a very brisk -5 degrees Celsius outside, but sunny. So, we went on up to Kenilworth Castle. Kenilworth, from all reports, is one of the largest set of Castle ruins in all of England. I must say, it was pretty remarkable.
Kenilworth Castle
And, being there on an early January morning gave us the place nearly to ourselves. Almost all of our photos are untainted by the casual tourist. Unfortunately, my camera batteries died early in the visit even though I had charged them the night before. So much for grey-market batteries, eh? So, the first half of our visit is well-documented, the second half…considerably less so (although my wife did take a lot of photos, too).
From Kenilworth, we drove on in to London. I had to make a quick stop at the Cargo facility. After all, even on vacation, duty does call. I met with the guys there for an hour or so, then we continued on to Bath road to secure lodging for the night. We are at the same Radisson Edwardian Hotel in which we started our Hogmanay journey and in a very similar room. We started off in a different room, in a different wing, on a different floor. However, Hotel issues with plumbing (boilers went out) and our issues with smoking rooms, places us in the 3rd room of the night and here we will stay. For tomorrow we must depart and return to the home of our birth if not necessarily the home of our heart.
Thank you everyone for following along with us, for encouraging us and for allowing us to share our journey, our love, our passion for this country with you.
Cheers.

Victorian Kiss

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

20 March 2008
One of our first visits to Dickens on the Strand in Galveston, TX. Marita Beth made the clothing we’re both wearing. The photo was taken by our dear friend Ginger who subsequently also had it mounted and framed.

The reflections are a little distracting, but I can’t put a polarizer on this camera.
Cheers.

Orange, Green & Blue

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

1 October 2007
The best month of the year has just started. And you know what, it was a decent day. Marita Beth continued working on East Wind Games and making the inventory mess much happier, while I slaved away at my day-job. On the drive home, I passed through a typical construction zone in South Arlington and grabbed this photo while stopped at a stop light:
Construction Pylon.
It’s a good thing I did, too, as it was the only photo I took. After gettting home, I ran around pulling together my footy kit since I had a game last night. I didn’t get home from the game until just about 11:30. I was knackered and not up to more photography. So, I just hoped that the single shot would be ok. As it turns out it is. I like the way the orange pops out against the green hillside and the bluesky. I also like what I believe is a spider in the hole at the top of the pylon. Of course, I’d have never seen that from the car, it’s just a serendipitous inclusion. The last thing in the evening was to check my Fantasy Football (NFL) score. 1/2 of a point. I lost by 1/2 of a point to a certain Klobe. *Grrrr*
Cheers.

038?

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

28 September 2007
TGIF. Can it be said too many times? It was quite the week, but the week was over…finally. Knowing, this I slept in a little later than I had been and took a leisurely path to work. On the way, I stopped to take photos of yet another natural gas well. But, I decided on this one of the lock “protecting” the gate instead:
038?
Not that the images of the area aren’t worth the posting, I just liked this one best. I believe I’m becoming a fan of the close-up, the bokeh and extreme depth of field photo. Not that I can’t see the beauty in or even utilize other styles, I just think this is where my personal photographic journey is taking me.
Cheers.

Abstract Weave

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

26 September 2007
As you’ve likely sussed out, I’m behind again. The rapid posting behaviour only occurs when I’m days behind, if not weeks. In this case, I’ve done two posts, with 3 more to go before being up-to-snuff. One of the most frustrating things that occurs when I’m this far behind is that I will receive a new “assignment” between taking the photo and actually posting about it. This photo
Weave
would be great for the current assignment “Man-Made Abstract”, but since I’ve not technically received that assignment yet, I will simply use this as “Yet Another Day in Which I didn’t Take an Early Photo” image. I hope you don’t mind.
Cheers.

Lamp Texture

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

16 September 2007
Nearly caught up am I. This is my last photo of the sequence of "catching up." After a lazy day in which MB and I saw a movie, had lunch & went grocery shopping, it was bedtime before I realized I hadn't a photo to my day. I grabbed my trusty Canon and took this just before I turned off all the lights for a peaceful sleep.
Lamp Shade
The camera is resting on the hem of the shade with the focal point on the texture in the centre of the image. I tilted the camera just a little to get a corner-to-corner line with the seam. In truth, I kind of like it.
Cheers.

Stumble, You Might Fall

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

13 September 2007
I had the opportunity to take a Business Ethics class today. It’s all common sense you know, and anyone who can’t understand the legal pitfalls created by ignoring ethical behaviour really shouldn’t have a job in corporate America. But, nonetheless we’re required to take the class every five years or so. Today was my day. It afforded me the opportunity to walk halls and pathways in the overly large work complex that I don’t normally traverse. That’s where this photo came from. I found myself in a deserted stairwell with a little bit of time to kill; so, voila!
Taking the Stairs
There’s a series of stair photos, but I liked this one best (even if it is a little fuzzy).
Cheers.
