Actually I can make a pretty good guess: just past the car is a narrow section on Gold Camp Rd, pretty much one-way, and that car had a disagreement on the right of way, probably with a big pickup truck. Guess who won that argument?
This is when I finally got some photos that I was proud of, and that the photo class liked. In many cases they don’t have too much to do with my final conception but there are hints here and there, just in need of refining.
The other thing is that these were taken in February and March or thereabouts and really I didn’t have much going on work-wise but it ramps up quickly after that, as it’s about to now again.
Winter/Spring 2019 I retook Advanced Photography.
I was just getting the ball rolling at this stage, there weren’t too many things going on in January/February. The most important thing was to hit the ground running. I had to convince the class that my Cowboys & Jeeps project was worth it, but I did narrowly succeed.
The alternative was to revisit my personal project from the first time I took Adv.Photo, but I wanted something fun, and could shoot this project while working which was a big plus. I was shooting bulk rolls of Tri-X but it hadn’t come in yet so I pulled out my old bulk roll that expired 20 years ago.
Half these pictures are the result of my instructor suggesting that I make a series of pictures of coworkers off-duty, and that didn’t go over as well with the class so I promptly dropped the idea. Of the rest are a picture when my cousins came to visit as well as a few from Garden of the Gods’ annual bighorn sheep day. It took some time to really home in on what this project would become but there are a few seeds in one or two of the pictures.
