Photo: Drops of Steel

Drops falling from a faucet into a steel sink at a restaurant. I made this black and white and added a lot of contrast. The flash fired and the shutter speed was 1/30 of a second, which is very long for capturing falling droplets. I’m surprised this turned out so good.

Giving away pictures

I gave away about 800 four-by-six prints of my recent pictures at Daytona State College today, so if you are visiting because you received one of those, give me a shout in the comments! :smile:

While I haven’t attended the college besides online classes in a year, next year I am taking the pre-requisites for the education program, so I will be at the Daytona Beach campus four days a week. I met a lot of old friends today and am looking forward to working on DSC in Motion, the college newspaper, after being the Features Editor in fall 2009.

I got my driver’s license on Monday after having a learner’s permit for over a year, so now I can travel wherever I want in my father’s van. Previously, he would have to go with me, drive home, and come back to pick me up, which he only wanted to do if I had class, but not for meetings or socializing. The only downside to having a license is the ridiculous insurance costs, which are currently averaging to $87.26 per month for me. I’m going to try to go somewhere everyday, because if I don’t I’ve basically wasted $2.90 because that’s the daily cost of the insurance. I don’t even have collision or comprehensive coverage and I have the highest deductible, so I think $20 per month would be a much more reasonable price. We are using Response insurance, so please let me know if you know a cheaper company (Progressive quoted us at over $150 per month).

To recoup some of the costs of insurance I’ve added Infolinks to my blog, so if you see words double-underlined those are advertisements and I earn money when they are clicked on. Please don’t click on them unless you are genuinely interested in the advertisements, however. In one week, I’ve made $0.39 from these, so I might remove them soon because they are producing very little money.

We really get some amazing sunsets in Florida. As always, editing helped this one along, but it was breathtaking to begin with.

Yellow leaves on a Chinese Talo tree, Dec. 31, 2005. This would be “Winter Leaves 7” if Florida’s winters weren’t like other states’ autumns.

Autumn Leaves 3-6 weren’t very good, so I’m not going to post them. :smile:

Broken bits of glass on a sidewalk in Dec. 2005. Unlike computer chips, glass hasn’t changed much. This is a newly edited version converted to black and white with extra contrast.

Happy Black Friday 2010 everyone! I bought a new 23″ LED monitor but that’s it. Don’t spend too much.

Back in 2005, I did a whole series of photos of salt and pepper shakers that were basically all the same. This was the first and best of said series. Now I have a question for you: are salt and pepper really friends?

Photo from the passenger’s seat on I-95 from Dec. 27, 2005. The exit is Old Dixie Highway, but the sign is blurred because this was a two second exposure at 70 miles per hour.
