Basic Photography Projects

And I figure for today I am going to do another photo blog this time showcasing my projects from my Basic Photography class where I used cameras that produced black and white pictures. Even though I have these photos on my Facebook photo page as well as on my Behance portfolio that I made last semester for my Communication Arts Portfolio, I figure I’d add them here as well. However if you want to check out that particular section of my portfolio, here is the link:

  • So anyway, here you go and enjoy. Hard to believe that my last year at Herkimer College is about to begin next week. 🙂

    Halloween in Herkimer

    Hi, everyone. I have posted some more photos today that I took of Halloween decorations around Herkimer. A little late for Halloween I might add but I hope that you like it.

    Bicentennial

    Happy 200th anniversary, Herkimer!

    Happy 200th anniversary, Herkimer!

    Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the 2007 Herkimer Bicentennial Parade which commemmorated the 200th anniversary of the incorporation of Herkimer, N.Y. It was really exciting and I got plenty of photos. I just finished uploading all of the photos I took of the event from a CD I had made at Wally World. The reason why I had to wait until now to upload them was that I didn’t have enough money to pick them up until yesterday.

    There were a wide variety of floats and people in the parade. Most of them had to do with the Revolution and had many marchers dressed in Revolutionary War-era costumes. Some of them were basic floats with bands, clowns, beauty queens and themes that dealt with historic events in Herkimer. There were also military marchers, public officials, and even Ronald McDonald was in the parade.

    Of course there was one piece of Herkimer history that was not represented in the parade and that is the piece of history that I am involved in: Two individuals by the name of Chester and Grace. Of course they were last year, but I still think that they should have been represented. There just wasn’t enough interest.

    Anyway, I have just uploaded the photos into a new set on my Flickr photo site. I have just added a link to that new set on my profile. It was a lot of fun and I am glad that I went. I didn’t really get to partake in the after-parade party in Myer’s Park afterwards because I had to work that night. Then as I was going into Wally World after a brief stop-off at Mickey D’s, they were having the fireworks display outside. I didn’t really see too much of that because I had to eat dinner before work that night. Besides, fireworks aren’t usually my thing anyway.

    In short, it was a pretty enjoyable day.
