I was planning on posting these pictures on the web, but instead I decided to put them up on Gemini, I guess to demonstrate that you can actually host pictures on here and it's a really nice experience to browse them in something like Lagrange. The photos aren't necessarily good or artistic but they are ones I like, and I organized them in roughly reverse chronological order. I'll update this page from time to time when I take another I like.

All images are taken on a Nikon D7200 with a Nikkor 22–55mm or a Nikkor 80–200mm, a Canon AE-1 Program with a Kiron 80–200mm or a Vivitar 55mm, or an Olympus XA.

[4.2mib] A Swainson's Hawk perched on a dying tree, staring directly at the camera

[3.2mib] The same hawk in the same spot, but now looking off towards the right

I think these were some of the first film photos I ever took, all on the same hike.

[1.1mib] A B&W shot of a pair of red-tailed hawks sitting in a tree

[1.0mib] The same pair from a different angle

1-month exposure on homemade pinhole camera. I was hoping to get a solargraph-like thing, but the camera looked like a pipe bomb so I taped it up in my less-advantageously-positioned bedroom window rather than in a public spot. It should be noted that this is black and white photo paper. The entirety of any image on this paper would ordinarily be greyscale. Another thing to note is that this was never developed or fixed, it went right from the camera to the scanner without any chemicals.

[1.6mib] A paper scan that's a peculiar pink shade, with a circular image in the middle, with faintly visible features

[2.1mib] Croppped version of the previous image with just the circular image visible, with slight adjustments made. The pink is deeper, and in the faint image some trees and a horizon is visible. There is also a small trail from the sun visible in the middle left.

[1.5mib] A path bordered by very thick brush with trees in the background.

Taken on a trip to Castlewood Canyon State Park in Colorado.

[1.6mib] A black and white shot looking at the far wall of a canyon. There are several small and medium sized pine trees in the foreground, and there's a shadow of a large pine tree in the center, with the tree itself slightly visible on the left.

[2.4mib] A B&W vertical photo of a small frozen waterfall and river nestled in a forest, stretching off into the distance.

[1.3mib] Same photo as the previous, but horizontally cropped and exposed slightly differently.

[1.3mib] A B&W photo of a snowy path curving off with leafless bushes forming an arch over it.

[1.2mib] A B&W shot of a river iced over with clear ice, with snow piled up on the edges and in the middle, with the river flowing around the middle snow pile, and also through a hole in the pile cut by the water.

[2.3mib] A black and white shot of a scraggly-looking pine tree jutting straight up, growing out of a rocky ledge on the near side of the canyon. There's a clear sky and rocky Colorado prairie in the background on the far side of the canyon.

Somewhere on the western slope of Colorado? Taken in 2020, developed recently.

[1.2mib] A B&W photo of a dirt road snaking around a bend, with a snowy pine forest on the hills around and some light clouds in the sky
