Caption Time: Out for a Walk

So I caught this picture during my recent Vermont covered bridge excursion. This photo was taken in Bennington, at the Burt Henry Bridge. It’s a one-lane bridge that spans the Walloomsac River. I shot it with my Rolleiflex Automat MX, with a pack of Kodak Ektar that I think may have started to spoil. But…

Caption Time: Who likes ice cream?

For anyone to understand the incongruity of this photo, one needs to live in upstate New York. Stewart’s convenience stories (or, as we locals call them, “Storts”) have the best hand-scooped ice cream pints and quarts for year-round purchase. So much so, that if you see in this photo, apparently even an ice cream truck…

Caption Time: Does the USPS run on Dunkin’?

This won’t be a very long blog post today; I have a medical procedure first thing this morning.

Show me your creative…

Caption Time: Their First Ride Together

Sure, why not take the Russian 1100 MTO telephoto lens to the Saratoga Race Course (the flat track) on the HOTTEST day of the year … and stand by the rail … without any shade … and try to photograph from long distances as the horses round the final turn on their way to the…

Caption Time: Resurrection of an old photo

Here’s the deal.  I don’t want you to caption this original picture. This photo was taken at a motel in Bangor, Maine in the winter of I think 2012.  This photo was shot with a Lomography Sprocket Rocket camera, a totally plastic construct whose raison d’etre was to provide sprocket hole photography for those who…

Caption Time: A Rainbow at Saratoga

Last night, I won a little money at the Saratoga Harness track (yeah, I’m still calling it that, you can’t stop me), and as I left the building, I looked over my shoulder and saw – Oh yeah, that’s a nice looking rainbow. Quick, out pops the BlackBerry PRIV camera phone (have I mentioned how…
