The straight-on perspective in b&w is a super-interesting shot, Dave! And I remember riding Champ too :)

I thought I would post another of 'Champ'. He is plugged in and ready to ride for 25 cents. If I remember correctly it was only a nickel the last time I rode, inflation !!!
Both the "champ" photos are pretty cool, Dave. The first one with the empty street, the straight-on view of "Champ", and all the geometry is a visual puzzle that's fun to solve by following the lines and angles. The side-portrait of Champ is a nostalgic image that has a vintage feel to those muted colors.
(PS- your monochrome has some halos along those edges, but you know how to fix 'em!)

Thanks Minnie !!! I don't think there are many of these around anymore, so I felt the urge to document one for a collection of memories.
I knew about the haloing, but I decided to make repairs another day.

Week #7 of Project 52 and a much needed "mind meld" from me is in order for creative ideas of subject matter. I may have to go out of town before long to get back in a groove of acceptance, rather than the same ole' same ole'. I do think I have been somewhat successful in mixing things up, but don't be surprised to see some recurring subjects, such as bridges, cityscapes, but hopefully nothing boring.

This week, a few images inside the Veterans Hospital, a place where I do frequent from time to time. I have never considered the thought of taking the opportunity to photograph there and may return when warmer weather arrives because in the past there have been some interesting characters in passing.

All three images were taken with a Tokina wide angle lens in manual mode @16mm f2.8, ISO 400, 1/125 shutter speed and while no flash was used, not a nary of patients were harmed in any way during the shooting process. I would say it's safe to return at my own discretion?

Dave, These are wonderful; great range of tones, creative cropping, inventive framing. I especially like #3; no surprise with my leaning toward the dark side. Well done. Matt

These are well taken and paint a clear picture of the grim and lonely environment of any hospital. It is interesting to contrast these images it’s Grahams recent images from medical facilities in India.

Thanks Matt. Glad that you lean towards the dark side as well. Now I don't feel so all alone.

Thanks Minnie. I agree, it is a grim & lonely environment, but most vets have a positive & upbeat attitude. I feel fortunate upon every visit, for so many are in such bad health.

There's a power and beauty to these images that remind of something I'd see in a gallery showing. It's your composition and use of space, and the processing of course, but it's more than that, there's an intimate feeling that you somehow capture that's inviting and makes you want to know more, almost as if we are there with you. I hope you continue on this! S-
